Facebook-Twitter: guerra di interessi

Facebook-Twitter: guerra di interessi

Mentre in Germania Facebook deve fare i conti con la perdita di utenti a causa della politica di gestione della privacy per così dire... leggera e maldigerita dalle autorità locali, il popolare social network si prepara a dichiarare guerra a quello che sta divenendo il suo rivale più pericoloso: Twitter. Prossimamente infatti, nei menù della creatura di Mark Zuckerberg e soci, verrà aggiunta l'opzione "Aggiungi interessi", che consentirà agli utenti una gestione simile a quanto è...

La figlia passa troppo tempo su Facebook e lui spara al notebook

La figlia passa troppo tempo su Facebook e lui spara al notebook

Internet ha cambiato e sta tuttora cambiando la nostra esistenza, permettendoci di essere perennemente connessi, di lavorare comodamente seduti alla scrivania del nostro studio a casa e di comunicare con chi si trova dall'altra parte del globo come se fosse di fronte a noi. Questa incredibile rivoluzione ha, come sempre, anche dei risvolti negativi, con implicazioni che riguardano sia i più giovani, che si trovano a poter fingere di essere ciò che non sono, protetti dal celarsi dietro...

What to Expect From “Google Me”

What to Expect From “Google Me”

My greatest hope for the hotly-rumored, might-launch-any-day-now social networking app “Google Me” is that it will not merely clone Facebook in a weak attempt at parity, but that it will innovate and solve problems that plague existing social networks. Last month, a senior user experience researcher at Google, Paul Adams, gave a presentation entitled “The Real Life Social Network.” The 224 slides, embedded below, describe some of the problems and common...

The “Only If We’re Offline Friends” Rule

The “Only If We’re Offline Friends” Rule

I’m active on a LOT of social/sharing webapps: Twitter, Flickr, Foursquare, Tumblr, and to a lesser degree, FriendFeed, Delicious and Buzz. While most of my posts are public and open to everyone, on Foursquare and Facebook*, I only accept friend requests from people who I know and hang out with offline. Still, I feel bad refusing friend requests from people who listen to TWiG or read Lifehacker or this blog simply because I don’t know them. What I really want, on every...

Android 2.2 Screenshots: My Favorite Features in Froyo

Android 2.2 Screenshots: My Favorite Features in Froyo

Android 2.2 (code-named “Froyo,” the next alphabetical installment of dessert-named releases after Cupcake, Donut, and Eclair) is now rolling out to Nexus One handsets. If you’re tired of tapping and re-tapping the System Update menu item and getting nothing, you can update your N1 to 2.2 manually. Lifehacker runs down how. This method worked perfectly on my T-Mobile Nexus One, but I hear reports it does not work for the AT&T Nexus One. The manual update method...

Spokeo is the New Creepy People Search Engine

Spokeo is the New Creepy People Search Engine

Spokeo is the new people search engine that’s freaking users out, because when you “spokeo” yourself there’s a good chance you’ll find your home address, phone number, interests, gender, occupation, wealth level, marital status, photos, and more. The search engine compiles information from public records and public social media network pages to put together a pretty complete profile of individuals. My local news station ran a piece on Spokeo and profiled...

Three Ways You Can Help Build ThinkTank

Three Ways You Can Help Build ThinkTank

Hi all! I’ve been working furiously on ThinkTank over at Expert Labs for about six weeks now. Once in awhile I’ll post an update on where we’re at with the project. This is such an update, and it’s cross-posted from the Expert Labs blog. ThinkTank development has been going strong, but we need your help. If you’re a ThinkTank tester and/or a web developer, join the mailing list, fork the code, install ThinkTank on your server, and help us build the software...

Latest Videos: Singletasking and Personal Googlejuice

Latest Videos: Singletasking and Personal Googlejuice

My FastCompany.com video series continues with two new installments: one on reducing multitasking, and the other on claiming your name on the web. The singletasking bit is timely, as I’ve been on a mental deep dive working on ThinkTank these past few weeks, surfacing to see what I might be missing on the internet very minimally. When your brain sinks its teeth into something worthwhile, time and space cease to exist–the key is getting to that special state of flow, the zone....

Big! Exciting! News: ThinkTank Is Now at Expert Labs

Big! Exciting! News: ThinkTank Is Now at Expert Labs

I am thrilled to announce I’ve landed a pinch-me dream job: I’m now a Project Director at Expert Labs, the new non-profit headed up by Anil Dash. I’ll be in charge of developing ThinkTank. Here’s what happened. Last March I was thinking about buying a netbook, and asked my Twitter followers a question: Do you have a netbook? What do you love or hate about it? When I got back 243 informed opinions by savvy netbook owners, I knew I needed a way to easily parse and...

Iterating Buzz

Iterating Buzz

Last week I gave Google a small pass for launching Buzz with serious privacy problems and a too-hard-to-find “off” button, saying that at least they were iterating quickly and openly, correcting their mistakes. Today I’m happy to see they continued to do so this weekend, even after I wondered if I spoke too soon. Significant changes to how Buzz works will be rolling out which address most of the problems it has. Would you see this kind of quick and apologetic about-face...
