What Facebook’s Messenger debacle says about the company… both the brilliant and the terrible | PandoDaily
But more to the point is what the whole thing says about Facebook. There are two important takeaways: One troubling and one impressive. One that speaks to the company’s greatest Achilles Heel as long as I’ve covered it, and one that speaks to its greatest strength. The first is just how much people distrust and are predisposed to dislike Facebook. [...] But the problem is Facebook is as synonymous with disrespecting your privacy today as Microsoft was for abusing it’s monopolist position in the post-Netscape days. [...] ADOPTION AND MOBILE HOMESCREEN // >> But right now, they are all on going parallel experiments that are ultimately competing to be the thing we open the most everyday when we are waiting in line, killing time, or want to shout out a video, photo or emoji to a pal.

Facebook Data Privacy Class Action Joined By 11,000 And Counting | TechCrunch
“We are only claiming a small amount, as our primary objective is to ensure correct data protection. However, if many thousands of people participate we would reach an amount that will have a serious impact on Facebook’,” said Schrems in a statement. +++ http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-28677667 +++ http://techcrunch.com/2014/08/14/safe-harbour-cdd-ftc-complaint/

How Facebook Sold You Krill Oil - NYTimes.com
Google - intent // Facebook - like ... a link ... following ... same as Twitter. "Thumpstopper" = 'Showstopper' // And Content (blog, press) - is the native ad and advertorial // "With its trove of knowledge about the likes, histories and social connections of its 1.3 billion users worldwide, Facebook executives argue, it can help advertisers reach exactly the right audience and measure the impact of their ads — while also, like TV, conveying a broad brand message. Facebook, which made $1.5 billion in profit on $7.9 billion in revenue last year, sees particular value in promoting its TV-like qualities, given that advertisers spend $200 billion a year on that medium." [...] “But Facebook offers the unique combination that you don’t really see in a lot of digital platforms of amazing scale as well as a very personal engagement opportunity.”

VC Stewart Alsop: How I pissed off Steve Jobs - YouTube
Steve Job's last big gig was designing and figuring out the Apple TV, where TV is an app and the Device, what is known as TV is a super-size iMac. A Personal Computer. Plus they probably will make the iPad and Apple TV / iTV connect to each other so you can use the iPas and iPhone as 2nd Screen and do social media and surfing and sharing while watching TV. // Google acquisition of Nest Lab is also talent acquisition - Tony Fadell - a former Apple Execs. But he is a Product Guy and those are valuable, and Apple competed with Google for Nest Labs and thus Tony Fadell. Larry Page needs Fadell to improve Google's product line and future products and teach other Googlers 'product development, management and how to think about it correctly.' >> Android, Nexus, Google Chrome, Google Glasses, Google Car, Google ChromeCast. The big things that bring in the money. // // bn dollar companies have an asshole at their helm, that one that steps on people to get his way, get things done, rolling.

Staatsanwaltschaft erließ Haftbefehl gegen Hoeneß - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Am Dienstagabend meldete sich am Rande seines Saarland-Besuchs auch Joachim Gauck zu den Vorwürfen gegen Hoeneß zu Wort: Gegenüber dem Saarländischen Rundfunk sagte der Bundespräsident, er werde "keine moralische Verurteilung vornehmen." Sein Interesse sei vielmehr, "dass wir aus solchen Fällen lernen und begreifen: Zu einer funktionierenden Demokratie gehört die Bereitschaft aller, etwas dazu beizutragen. Wir können nicht wählen, ob wir Steuern zahlen, jedenfalls nicht legal." Es gehöre "zur Verantwortung eines mündigen Bürgers, Pflichten zu akzeptieren", so Gauck weiter. "Es gehört zu einer gewachsenen Bürgerkultur, dass wir uns mitverantwortlich fühlen. Dieses Element der Mitverantwortung sollte jeder im Kopf haben, der manchmal über zu hohe Steuern stöhnt." Gauck äußerte sich auch zur Vorbildfunktion von Uli Hoeneß und sagte, Menschen seien nicht fehlerfrei, aber bei Personen, die im Fokus stünden, fielen "Fehler ganz besonders auf". Gauck fügte hinzu: "Wenn Vorbilder ihren Vorbi

Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook Home, Money, and the Future of Communication | Wired Magazine | Wired.com
Zuckerberg can expect to hear sirens today, as he announces Home, Facebook’s most dramatic response to the pivot from desktop and web to phones and tablets. New paradigms like mobile can be the ill winds that blow down card-houses of tech dominance, and to maintain its status as the alpha social network, Facebook must get this right. [...] “Apps aren’t the center of the world,” he says. “People are.” [...] Facebook now calls itself a “mobile first, mobile best” company. [...] “SOMETIMES WE ARE GOING TO DO STUFF THAT’S CONTROVERSIAL, AND WE’RE GOING TO MAKE MISTAKES. WE HAVE TO BE WILLING TO TAKE RISKS.”

The Importance of Benevolent Dictators
I believe that groups coming together to make tough decisions driven by consensus tend to make poor decisions. [...] It’s hard being a leader. By definition leaders make hard choices given incomplete information. And by tough decisions I mean it is clear that some people’s views will end up on one side of the fence and others will end up on the other side. But you need conviction. [...] Leaders need to be respected, not loved. [...] Decision makers. Visionaries. Leaders. Chart their own course against the constant chorus of second guessers. [...] Don’t get me wrong. I am not saying that you should make decisions without other people’s input. My motto is “always triangulate.” >> http://www.bothsidesofthetable.com/2013/03/10/consequences-and-the-decisions-we-make-or-dont/

Dear Mark Zuckerberg | Dalton Caldwell
I have come to the conclusion that I took this foolhardy risk because the Twitter “platform” was even more of a joke than the Facebook “platform”. As someone that wants to build quality social software, software that doesn’t force users to re-create their friends list, or not use oAuth, etc., I have to endure huge platform risk. Personally speaking, I am resolved to never write another line of code for rotten-to-the-core “platforms” like Facebook or Twitter. Lesson learned.

[...]

I believe that future social platforms will behave more like infrastructure, and less like media companies. I believe that a number of smaller, interoperable social platforms with a clear, sustainable business models will usurp you. These future companies will be valued at a small fraction of what Facebook and Twitter currently are. I think that is OK. Platforms are judged by the value generated by their ecosystem, not by the value the platforms directly capture.

Larry Summers Learned One Invaluable Lesson While Running Harvard Dealbreaker: Wall Street Insider Financial News, Headlines, Commentary and Analysis Hedge Funds, Private Equity, Banks
What did Larry Summers really think of the Winklevoss twins? “Rarely, have I encountered such swagger, and I tried to respond in kind,” the former president of Harvard said in an interview at Fortune’s Brainstorm Tech conference. Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss were at Harvard at the same time that Mark Zuckerberg launched Facebook, and they had come to Summers for help in their fight for a piece of the action. Summers dismissed them, a scene dramatized in the movie the “Social Network.” Summers didn’t try to dispel the portrayal. “One of the things you learn as a college president is that if an undergraduate is wearing a tie and jacket on Thursday afternoon at three o’clock, there are two possibilities. One is that they’re looking for a job and have an interview; the other is that they are an a**hole. This was the latter case.”

A Russian Star Rises in Silicon Valley - BusinessWeek
Since paying $200 million for 2% of Facebook last May, Milner has increased that stake to nearly 10%—worth perhaps $2 billion—by purchasing shares from early employees, according to two people familiar with the social network's ownership. On Apr. 19, DST took the majority of a $135 million financing round for Groupon, a Chicago-based site offering coupons for restaurants and museums. In December, DST was the biggest investor in a group that plowed $180 million into Zynga. Milner "is a trusted adviser," says Zynga CEO Mark Pincus, who says the Russian visits every month "to give input, but it's a soft touch."

Dont Be A Featured Loser: Facebook Helps Out The Unpopular
Hey, isnt it Marks credo to make Facebook reflect your relationships digital you have in the real world? So maybe it is a good thing. Or maybe not, because I dont see why I should write on their wall when they are not into Facebook.

There are kids out there who are not into Facebook (and dont post links and upload photos), they are just here to do me a favor, because I asked them to join Facebook so that my profile reflects my real world relationships.

There was a digital divide on a internet connection basis and there will be a digital dived on a application basis.

So stop giving Mark a hard time.
