"Go Butler": So will das deutsche Start-up in den USA überleben - SPIEGEL ONLINE
"Ich habe keine Ahnung, wie die je profitabel werden wollen" [...] Andere Concierge-Services haben sich vom Gute-Fee-Modell bereits verabschiedet: Der amerikanische Konkurrent Magic verlangt seit Kurzem die happige Gebühr von 100 Dollar für jede Stunde, die seine "Magicians" an der Wunscherfüllung arbeiten. [ 61 Minutes] Heute verdient das Unternehmen 70 bis 80 Prozent seines Umsatzes mit Firmenkunden. Eine Beratungsfirma etwa lässt "Sixtyone Minutes" ihre gehetzten Consultants von lästigem Alltagskram entlasten.

Staff Exodus, Pressure From Microsoft, Apple Hit Google Now | Re/code
According to multiple sources, their initial vision of Now — as a mobile assistant tailored to particular users — works best living on the mobile operating system, not within search. Also, Google is a political place and search is Congress. Big, necessary, stodgy. [...] “‘Look, I’ve got a lot on my plate. Chrome and Android are my top priorities. Google Now is not on that. I can’t fight that battle for you.’” [...] Apple, for its part, looks prepared to launch a competitor to Now on Tap. With its proactive assistant and spotlight search, the Apple entry could elbow Google out. // // Amazon released a (SW/HW)PA for the living room, Apple got Siri & just recently launched its own integrated search engine called "Spotlight" & Google released Google Now (voice activated search in response to Siri) and at last Google I/O, Now on Tap [ Now on Tap will solve app developers’ nagging issue with discovery. ] And FB just came out w an assistant product for Messenger. // &! bit.ly/1JYeNCT

800-Pound Publishing Gorilla Facebook Barges Back Into Blogging With “Notes” | TechCrunch
Facebook’s advantage is its distribution. The same weapon it’s used to barge into web publishing with Instant Articles and video hosting with its auto-play clips could help it invade blogging. It’s similar to how LinkedIn used its natural traffic to launch a professional-minded publishing network. People will write where they get an audience. If that’s Facebook, they’ll publish there. And while Twitter doesn’t discriminate, showing every post to everyone, Facebook’s filtered feed shows you what it thinks you’ll actually consume [and what's in their best own interest, keeping you on FB, favouring native content of link-out content]. [ step by step, FB is productizing - offering more to advertisers how to reach their user base, leverage its huge user base, Big Data, users data, the ceiling for FB earnings is far off! and thus its market cap (valuation). could nearly double again from its 250bn. it doubled in 5 years from IPO slump. ] // &! wrd.cm/1Pw2v5w

Facebook Brings Auto-Play Video Ads To Apps In Its Mobile Ad Network | TechCrunch
[ it doesn't disrupt (well, less) the experience, flow, ... like a washing powder ad on TV during GoT episode, after somebodies head was cut off ] Facebook’s making a killing with its native, in-feed, auto-play video ads, and now it’s going to let other developers earn money off them too. Today Facebook announced that it’s opening up its own best-performing ad units to publishers that show Facebook’s Audience Network ads to monetize their apps. Facebook says Audience Network publishers using its native ad units get 7X better performance than on their traditional banner ads.

Don’t shoot the messenger: Facebook asks game developers to trust its Messenger platform | PandoDaily
Messenger also has something else going for it: It’s not Facebook, not exactly anyway. Most people are familiar with the dangers of relying on Facebook for any meaningful revenues. The company is capricious, its algorithms even more so, and a rags-to-riches tale can be reversed with just a couple of keystrokes. It’s hard to imagine Messenger operating the same way. The platform is built on people directly communicating with each other instead of sharing things to the abyss and hoping that Facebook’s algorithms deliver them to the right person. Which means it’s also perfect for helping games spread via word-of-mouth. If Messenger is built right into the game — or better yet, the game only exists in Messenger — it will be easy for interested players to share it with their friends.

Facebook Development Through The Years | TechCrunch
While it was fun to invite hundreds of your ‘friends’ to play on your farm or help with your mafia, it always felt that the very nature of many of those gaming experiences was simply to push as much content out onto friends Newsfeeds, as opposed to creating a deeper online connection with your friends. Through those experiences, it’s clear with the Messenger Platform rollout that the mission is different; have developers build great products and experiences that are more directly oriented to their friends. The very nature of the documentation for Messenger suggests building experiences that are focused, explicit and structurally sound, something that wasn’t quite there in 2007.

Looking for “the next Facebook”? It’s actually one of Zuckerberg’s own properties: Messenger | PandoDaily
Skype gets eaten by Networks greater than it ever could be, as feature for said Network(apps). Skype is also more than 10 years old. It's hard to disrupt yourself at that size, lots missed the mobile, underestimated the seismic shift of discretionary time spend on now on smart phone vs laptop/pc. Smartphone is less friction. Having an existing network of certain relations is less friction (Google Hangouts vs Citrix Go to Meeting (creating an account is friction, should partner up with Linkedin stupid)). Starting out as Desktop app and doing it really well there, and then just copying it to the smart phone? The smart phone is not a mini-pc/laptop! It's a much closer tight and emotional relationship (studies have showed).

Facebook News Feed Reprioritizes Your Real Friends Above Pages | TechCrunch
combat falling usage & engagement!? VS bit.ly/1by0vvx pay-to-play // FB turned from keeping up with the lifes of their friends (young demographic), into clickbait distraction & time wasting machine. Other platforms emerged 2 hang digitally with ur friends that are way more simplified (tuned down 2 1 usage; Appification) with much less bells & whistles & complexity/depth & distraction vs hooked). Thus the defensive acquisition of WhatsApp, Instagram & fork-out of Messenger. They saw Snapchat as a vector of attack bc of the appeal of ephemeral in todays 'always on record' products. Where VR is bet that is maybe even 10 years out 2 come finally 2 full fruition; mass market adoption (like the phone). Crossing the chasm. // Not even 10 years old & other people attack FBs weaknesses &are winning. But what FB got going for it, another 10 years is, the usr base as advertising victims (targeting&re-targeting) enabled by masscollection via Facebook-button. &log-in used in Apps.

Facebook Finds Strength As A Family, Not An App | TechCrunch
The subtext of Zuck’s “family” quote is that one app can’t do everything. On mobile, people want lean, purpose-driven experiences. Cramming everything into a one-size-fits-all can make it slow and bloated. But when you’re talking about trying to connect every human on earth, a singularly focused app alone can’t possibly meet the diverse needs of a diverse population. Zuckerberg explained “We’re building this family so we can offer unique, world-class experiences for every way that people want to share.” --- // add as user behaviour slash trait "convenience." // ie Instagram releasing separate app for photo collages. // Facebook Messenger as Platform - have ppl not learned to build their business on other ppls lawn? Ok for established businesses and own domain and standalone product and to be on Messenger only to reduce friction, ... still double edged sword.

Instagram Hits 300 Million Users, Now Larger Than Twitter | Re/code
It also means that Instagram now claims more monthly active users than Twitter (284 million) and likely LinkedIn, which has 331 million user accounts, but doesn’t specify how many are active. (Instagram’s 300 million figure represents the number of users logging in each month.) Instagram also says those users are posting 70 million photos a day. Facebook has always had a large audience — it currently boasts 1.35 billion users — but now the company has three other standalone services with at least 300 million users: Instagram, WhatsApp (600 million) and Facebook Messenger (500 million). &! http://techcrunch.com/2014/12/10/not-a-fad/ "With growth steady, Instagram is now looking to strengthen its authenticity. Soon it plans to launch verified badges for celebrities, brands, and athletes so people don’t accidentally follow parody, tribute, or look-alike accounts."
