It’s raining infographics

I

I’ve been afraid to turn on Tweetdeck lately. (Nope. Not being stalked by a troll. I know. I’m sad about it to.) Over the last month, I’ve been overwhelmed with the amount of valuable infographics. (Don’t believe me? Click here for Twitter/infographic search results.) The left side of my desktop is littered with infographics I’ve found from the Tweeps I follow. I use...

Get ready for Amazon Stores

G

With the rise of mobile powered commerce, brick and mortar stores now have a distinct advantage. When I say mobile powered commerce I mean. Mobile commerce – $4 billion for eBay this year Mobile transactions – buying something in the store with your mobile phone.

Facebook owns online usage

I saw this chart on Silicon Alley Insider (if you couldn’t guess from the image header) and you have to wonder how much more of an incline the Facebook line would have if they included the traffic from the Facebook app.

Google+ will not impact Facebook (video)

G

Let me start by saying that Google+ is a great idea. For those that don’t know, the idea behind Google+ is that you’re able to categorize your friendships with people from family, friends, acquaintances, professional contacts, etc. This is something Facebook should have done years ago as more and more people have begun to suffer from multiple persona disorder. (One of my students...

Can Google become a social company?

C

The general belief is that Google desperately wants to become a social company. Why? Because social will soon become the default state of the Internet.

Facebook currently has 680 million users Facebook has more traffic than Google 33% of all Internet traffic from the US is bound for Facebook At this point Google can’t become a...

Amazon watches eBay go after hyper-local market. What about Google and Facebook?

A

eBay has recently made some interesting acquisitions that I’m sure has someone at Amazon paying a little closer attention. For those that have not used eBay (yes there are some)  it’s more than an auction site. It’s an ecommerce site and with the ability to ‘Buy it Now’. I’d never purchased anything from eBay until recently. Pretty easy experience and not quite...

Bing is gaining on Google

B

Mashable recently posted about Bing gaining ground on Google and I can’t help but wonder if it’s because Bing search is featured on Facebook. With 33% of all US Internet users on Facebook throughout the day (10% internationally), it’s hard to imagine that users aren’t leaving to go to Google to perform searches. Why not just stay here! With the imminent release of...

The future of search is a layered cake

T

Some months ago I was surfing the net and came upon a post that featured a brief conversation at the end of it. Someone was watching a panel discussion and they were talking about the future of search. (I wish I could find the post.) They were discussing the rise of social search and predicted that search/search results would eventually have three layers. Social – Return results from your...
