  • Red State, Blue State: The Social Network VP Debate Divide Shown In Map Form

    In addition to the spikes in search activity, Thursday’s U.S. Vice-Presidential Debate also heated up across popular social networks. You won’t be surprised to know that both Twitter and Facebook saw plenty of debate-related discussion, and I’ll share some of that in a moment. But I want to start with a fascinating map from a [...]

  • Making It Personal: Taking Action On Your Customers’ Digital Body Language

    You stagger into your favorite coffee shop on Monday morning at 7 a.m., yawning and desperate for a caffeine jumpstart, when Mandy the barista places your daily double cappuccino with extra foam in front of you before you even have the chance to croak out your order. She’s also thought to include a sample of [...]

  • Yahoo’s Newly Redesigned Home Page Drops Flickr & Purple Logo

    Business Insider has a screen capture of the reportedly soon to be released new Yahoo home page under Marissa Mayer’s new lead as CEO. Overall, I find the new look to be cleaner, tighter and a bit more organized. But one glaring omission is featuring Flickr on the options on the left. It was listed [...]

  • Marketing Biz: DISQUS Builds Tunnels, Verbs Become Uniform & Groupon Serves Up Breadcrumb

    It was a relatively quiet week in the world of marketing. Perhaps politics or the San Francisco Giants playoff run (#gogiants) is keeping people from churning out work.

  • Can Facebook Build A Better Search? Should It?

    The road to Facebook’s mid-term success is paved with search goodness, many believe. When the stock starts tanking, the top execs apparently believe a good thing to do at a shareholder’s meeting is make an opaque reference to building a better search engine. “Build a better search” is an anthem many of us in the [...]

  • Report: iPhone 5 Web Traffic Passes Samsung Galaxy S3 In Three Weeks

    Samsung has sold many millions of units of its flagship Galaxy S3 Android smartphone around the world — well over 20 million (perhaps over 30 million now). However, according to Chitika, in a little under three weeks since the iPhone 5 has been out the Apple device has passed it in terms mobile traffic share [...]

  • Findery Now A Public Beta: Anyone Can Add Notes Around The World

    Findery announced they are now open to the public, still as a beta, but open for anyone to sign up with and use. Findery originally launched as Pinwheel but had to change their name to Findery over a trademark infringement issue. Findery allows users to leave public or private geotagged notes that are associated with [...]

    As part of the Amsterdam Privacy Conference held earlier this week in The Netherlands, professors from the UC Berkeley School of Law presented research on US consumer attitudes toward online privacy and the concept of “do not track” (DNT) in particular. The three professors behind the research, Chris Jay Hoofnagle, Jennifer M. Urban and Su Li, have published several [...]
