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”

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 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...

The “Only If We’re Offline Friends” Rule

The “Only If We’re Offline Friends” Rule

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 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...

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 does...

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...

Closing the Feedback Loop

Closing the Feedback Loop

Matt Haughey says Google Buzz doesn’t offer an easy way for publishers to see what people are saying about their stuff. He’s right; as in Google Reader and Facebook, much of the liking and commenting and sharing that goes on in Buzz happens out of earshot of the creator. I think Buzz is a fine product–a pretty predictable FriendFeed clone, really–but it does suffer from this same broken loop problem that Google Reader creates. Also of interest to other publishers,...

Funneling Social Media Updates and Google Buzz

Funneling Social Media Updates and Google Buzz

My latest FastCompany.com video segment, shot several weeks ago, is about managing your social media updates, partly by funneling them all into one place (like your email inbox). Then Google Buzz launched. So, here’s my social media productivity two-punch: first the video, then a walk through Google Buzz’s more advanced features. Work Smart: Mastering Your Social Media Life is two minutes and nine seconds on how to keep up with social networking updates without spending...

Google Buzz: Gmail’s New Social Network Activity Aggregator

Google Buzz: Gmail’s New Social Network Activity Aggregator

Google announced the all-new Google Buzz today, a Gmail “inbox” of sorts that aggregates all your contacts’ social network activity across the web. Lifehacker’s got the full rundown. A few quickly-jotted first impressions of the service: This ain’t no Orkut. Buzz demonstrates that Google is VERY serious about social media, and just threw down the gauntlet in an attempt to take on Facebook and Twitter. However, they’re doing it by embracing existing...

How to Ditch GoDaddy (Redux)

How to Ditch GoDaddy (Redux)

Last year’s trashy GoDaddy SuperBowl commercials annoyed me enough to switch domain registrars; this year’s just confirmed I made the right decision. If you want out, here’s what I posted about it last year: Yes, I knew that popular, cheap domain registrar GoDaddy always used sex to sell their services, and yes, their bullying upsells always bugged me, but yesterday’s Super Bowl ad shot my “Stop doing business with GoDaddy” to-do to the top of my list....

“You’ve Got Waves”: How to Get Google Wave Notifications

“You’ve Got Waves”: How to Get Google Wave Notifications

Once you’re active in Google Wave, you want to know if something new is happening there–even if you don’t have Wave open in your web browser. Several Wave notifier applications and browser add-ons can do the work of checking your Wave inbox for you, and letting you know you’ve got new and changed waves. The following is an excerpt from the all-new Chapter 9 of The Complete Guide to Google Wave. Got feedback? Let me know in the comments and help write the first...

Flash’s Decline on Lifehacker, from 2006 to 2010

Flash’s Decline on Lifehacker, from 2006 to 2010

Just like it isn’t on the iPhone and iPod touch, Adobe’s Flash browser plug-in will not be on the iPad, and there are a whole lot of opinions about that decision. Predictably, Steve’s apostles are smug, Adobe’s pouting, and the rest of us will have to field questions from our relatives about why they keep seeing a blue lego piece. Flash usage has been declining over the years anyway, and a few web publishers have shared numbers to prove the point. 32% of visitors...

My Latest, Favorite Google Wave Tips and Updates

My Latest, Favorite Google Wave Tips and Updates

Been hard at work readying The Complete Guide to Google Wave for its PDF debut this month. The Wave team has been making it more difficult with (welcome) changes to the app on the final days of copyedit. I’ve been updating a book-specific Twitter stream, @gwaveguide, with Wave news and tips, but wanted to round up three of my favorite must-know items here. You already know that public waves are a great way to interact with people on Google Wave (especially if your friends and co-workers...

Voting for SXSW Interactive panel proposals closes end-of-day tomorrow, and your little green thumbs-up counts for 30% of a panel’s chance of actually happening. Here’s the panel I proposed, the one I’ll be on (if it’s voted through), and others I’ve voted for. My panel proposal: How’d They DO That?

iPhone 3GS? Not Enough to Justify the Cost (and AT&T Sucks)

iPhone 3GS? Not Enough to Justify the Cost (and AT&T Sucks)

Asked my Twitter peeps whether or not they were buying the just-released iPhone 3GS, and 175 replies later, the response is a pretty solid NO. Almost 80% of respondents are passing on the 3GS mainly because they don’t think the upgrade is worth the money, they’re not eligible for the upgrade pricing, they think AT&T blows, they’re waiting for next year’s model, or they’re simply happy with their current phone. The other 20% were thrilled about getting...
