The end of ThinkUp
Anil talks about the tightening APIs that are forcing ThinkUp to shut down. I've been a ThinkUp user since the days you installed it on your own server. ThinkUp tried to help you understand how you use services like Twitter and Facebook. Big thanks to Anil and Gina for helping us do that for so long.

(MeFi's own) hoder became a human time capsule spending six years in an Iranian prison for blogging.

Social media monetization pains. I figured the Instagram acquisition was about driving traffic and content to Facebook, not serving ads. Seems short-sighted.
