- Teens More “Normal” Than You Think Regarding Media Usage | Nielsen Wire
It’s 2009: Do you know where your kids are?
They might be on the Internet, or gaming or texting… but they could
also be be watching live TV, listening to the radio or reading a
newspaper. At the annual What Teens Want conference in New York, The
Nielsen Company presented How Teens Use Media, which argues once you
look past the hype – American teens are not as alien in their media
usage as you might expect. Sure, it might sound hip and trendy to
suggest they’re too busy texting, Twittering or LOL-ing to be engaged
with traditional media, but ultimately, the research proves otherwise.

- The Future of Search: Social Relevancy Rank
What we are about to get is a Social Relevancy Rank. Whenever you
search streams of activity, the results will be ordered not
chronologically but by how relevant each is to you based on your social
graph. That is, people who matter more to you will bubble up. How does
this work? Well, there will be a formula, just as there is a formula
for Page Rank.
