  • Don’t Let Social Media Comments Ruin Discussions On Your Blog
  • Social Networks Leaking Users Data To Tracking Sites
    Many popular social networking sites typically make personal
    information available to companies that track users’ browsing habits
    and allow them to link anonymous browsing habits to specific people,
    according to a new study by the Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI).
  • 10 Sobering Twitter Statistics
    Twitter-bird I don’t have to tell you that everyone is talking Twitter.
    If you haven’t heard about it from your friends, co-workers, or
    favorite social media “guru,” then you’ve certainly heard about it via
    CNN, Oprah, The Today Show, USA Today, and countless other media
    outlets that are constantly talking about it lately. There are a lot of
    great things things about it. I’ve met some wonderful people and value
    it for online reputation monitoring and live search purposes, but there
    are downfalls that many overlook. Allow me to be the “fun sponge” and
    share 10 sobering Twitter statistics found after scouring nearly a
    dozen comScore, eMarketer, Nielsen, HubSpot, Pear Analytics, and Alexa
    reports :
  • Is social media worth your marketing dollars?
    As social media has reached mainstream consciousness this year,
    businesses have been inundated with the message that they must
    immediately get on board or risk doom and calamity. The hyperbole (and
    the frenzied buzz it creates) is confusing and many businesses could
    use a practical guide on how to evaluate social media and how to engage
    – if it’s appropriate.
  • Cisco Readying Collaboration Software Platform
    Cisco Systems is developing a collaboration software platform that will
    allow enterprises to combine social networking, presence, content and
    transactional applications in a single interface.

  • Best Customers: Those Who Steal Their Content
    Historically, an easy way to stoke the ire of a major media executive
    was to start talking about the surge in peer-to-peer file distribution.

    Now, we do lots of research at Frank N. Magid Associates to take the
    pulse of various media channels for customers, and recently a P2P
    company, Vuze, hired us to find out how its users’ media habits compare
    with those of the average internet user. When we did, we found that
    those media execs may not have cause for all the quaking. (While we
    conducted the study on behalf of a client, I assure you we used the
    same sound, time-tested methods we use for any of our in-house,
    proprietary research.)

  • Gartner Identifies the Top 10 Strategic Technologies for 2009
    Gartner
    defines a strategic technology as one with the potential for
    significant impact on the enterprise in the next three years. Factors
    that denote significant impact include a high potential for disruption
    to IT or the business, the need for a major dollar investment, or the
    risk of being late to adopt.

    These technologies impact the organization’s long-term plans,
    programs and initiatives. They may be strategic because they have
    matured to broad market use or because they enable strategic advantage
    from early adoption.

  • How SPEAR Identifies Domain Experts within Delicious
  • Dolores Labs Blog » The Programming Language with the Happiest Users
    Which
    languages make programmers the happiest? It’s clear that some languages
    are more popular than others, and many of us debate long and hard over
    the relative merits of Python vs Ruby, C vs Java or Lisp vs everything
    else. But what’s the general consensus?
  • How companies are benefiting from Web 2.0: McKinsey Global Survey Results
  • Douglas Adams on the internet in 2009
    Twitter has become a polarising service. I’m one of the millions of
    people who find value in Twitter, mostly because I’ve built a network
    of new media and digital journalism professionals, many of whom I am
    lucky enough to call friends. As I’ve said before, my network is my
    filter, and my Twitter network provides me with an incredibly valuable
    filtered feed of content that I have to know as a social media
    journalist. It’s better than any single site. I generate an RSS feed
    just of the links that friends post in Twitter to keep on top it.
