  1. fra tre anni Facebook potrebbe non esistere più o quasi. Uno studio della Princeton University prevede infatti che il club digitale dell’amicizia scompaia dal web entro il 2017: nei prossimi tre anni, afferma la ricerca, potrebbe perdere l’80 per cento o più dei suoi seguaci, come riporta oggi il Guardian di Londra.

    Naturalmente è soltanto un’ipotesi scientifica, basata sulla curva di crescita e decrescita di epidemie come la peste bubbonica. Ma proprio in modo simile a un’epidemia si è diffuso il social network, moltiplicandosi a velocità prodigiosa, da poche migliaia di studenti di Harvard a un milione di utenti a centinaia di milioni e ormai a un sesto dell’umanità. E altri social network, come MySpace e Bebo, sono nati, cresciuti e precipitati nel nulla molto rapidamente:

  3. Apple should buy Twitter, and they should do it now.

    I would posit that the cause Apple’s lackluster web skills stems from their inability to recruit or keep talented web engineers. Historically, if you’re into databases, servers, or web application frameworks, then Apple was probably pretty low on the list of places you aspired to work at. Apple has always positioned itself as a consumer products company, and even killed off its server hardware over the years. Mac OS X Server remains, but who knows for how long.

    Where Apple falls short, Twitter flies. Not only does Twitter use some of the most advanced web technology, they invented it. They own scale. They know how to send hundreds of thousands of tweets a minute. Further, Twitter is social network with values that (used to) reflect Apple: focus and simplicity.

    Apple should buy Twitter not for its social network, but for its talent and technology. That talent and technology could undoubtably help bring Apple and iCloud into the 21st century. The social network is basically an added bonus.

  4. A study released this week revealed that 47% of Facebook users have swear words on their pages. A survey last week, meanwhile, showed that undergraduate men who talk about alcohol on Facebook tend to have more friends.

  6. online presence search” will become as common as a drug test

    A recent study by OfficeTeam shows that more than one-third of companies feel that resumes will be replaced by profiles on social networks. My prediction is that in the next ten years, resumes will be less common, and your online presence will become what your resume is today, at all types and sizes of companies.

    More and more people are using social networks to send and receive messages. About 90% of U.S. Internet users visit a social networking site each month, reports Comscore. Usage of Web-based email has fallen 8%, with the biggest decline among 12 to 17 year-olds, with an almost 60% drop.

    Applying to job postings, in newspapers and online, won’t get you anywhere and is becoming completely ineffective.

  7. China’s Social Media Market: Nearly a Billion Users — Mostly on Mobile

    China Has Many 100 million+ User Social Networks For Many Purposes, Unlike Western-based social media

    Facebook and Twitter Will Never Dominate in China (Even If They Were Allowed There)

    Mark Zuckerberg’s pre-IPO visits to China fueled rumors that his social network, now blocked by the government there, will finally be allowed into the country. But as I’ve written before, barring some dramatic change, Facebook will never, ever be a dominant force in China, even were it allowed into the country with the state’s full endorsement (highly unlikely in itself).

    Facebook’s primary revenue model, advertising, is strictly regulated there, as is its second revenue stream, gaming. In fact, every core feature of Facebook would require several government licenses, each of which would likely take months to procure. It’s also possible that their activity in China would be frowned upon by their Western audience and regulators. (Most of these problems, as you might have guess, also apply to Twitter, making its successful entry into China equally unlikely.)

    So without Facebook and Twitter, does that mean China’s social media users are unreachable by Western social networks?

    Not exactly:
