Epic tweet from @iamdylancurran on his (your) data

1. Google stores your location (if you have it turned on) every time you turn on your phone, and you can see a timeline from the first day you started using Google on your phone — Dylan Curran (@iamdylancurran) March 24, 2018 3. Google stores search history across all your devices on a separate database, so even if you delete your search history and phone history, Google STILL stores...

Wolves and the social food chain

W

I recently read this article  that discusses how Snapchat needs to grow faster to compete with Instagram.  I call Snapchat “Facebook Labs” because Instagram has copied most of Snapchat’s functionality over the past year. So much that Snapchat has acquired a team that makes reverse engineering difficult.  (I also want to see if they can get creative with patenting.) I also read...

A recipe for the flood

A

When I started my corporate career, I’d been hearing for years that successful people would read the Wall Street Journal, front to back, every morning just to keep up. I recently thought about that statement and how ridiculous it sounds given today’s flood of information. Information now flows unabated. From hundreds of sources. It’s almost impossible to keep up but luckily for...

social media venues and when they get used

s

I attended the annual Big Boulder conference Monday+Tuesday of this week and once again, it was an amazing experience. (I’ll post about the event soon.) One of the people who spoke at the event was Tram Nguyen of Pinterest. She said what most of us already know; many people use Pinterest to plan things. Weddings, meals, etc. They use it as a planning tool for short-term things. Then Chris...

Keywords and Twitter

K

Back in 2011, Twitter and Google got divorced. Actually, it turns out it was a trial separation. On February 4th, they announced a new deal that has Tweets showing up in search results again. (This is possible because one of Twitter’s latest acquisitions, GNIP recently indexed all tweets back to 2006.) This is great news because it once again helps businesses own SERPs. It also means that...

Taco Bell’s Twitter miss

T

I tweeted the message below after downloading the new Taco Bell app. For those of you that don’t know, Taco Bell 0wns Twitter. They’ve created some of the best brand moments and I agree with HuffPo that whoever runs their account, deserves a raise. As you can tell from my Tweet, I was surprised that they didn’t allow users to login with their Twitter credentials. I completely...

Get creepy

I arrive in Denver at 3:32pm on flight 1431.  I need to get to Boulder by 7pm for a dinner meeting. I get off the plane and make my way to the main concourse. I receive a text that Uber will be at door 8B on the west side as usual. I reply back; “I’m hungry but don’t know what I want. ” They message back, “We’ll take care of it.”  I make my way to the...

The evolution of digital content

T

Aggregation – Back in the day there was this thing called RSS, which stood for Really Simple Syndication. It was a way of getting a list of all the content that a site created in one easy to read list. Yep. It’s still around. There’s one in the upper right hand corner of this site. Curation – Now there is a amazing tool called Twitter. Twitter allows you to follow specific...
