Facebook's Terms of Service (TOS) Claims they can Do Whatever They Want with Your Content Forever

Portals and KM

Have you seen the revised Facebook terms of service? I understand the logic of what Zuckerberg wrote but I still an not sure that they need to go as far as they did.

Why I, Too, Killed My LinkedIn Account


Back in the day, when I was just getting started with my early days around social computing evangelism, I must confess that I used to think that people who didn’t have a social profile in all of the major social networking tools out there just didn’t get it. I guess it was my inner self trying to rebel against that good old notion of people saying one thing and doing something completely different. I guess that’s what reaching a level of maturity is all about.

The Untold Costs of Social Networking


Little did we know that, fast forward to 2016, all of those networking activities would come with a really high price tag: your own data in unwanted hands. At least, to some of us. Goodness, what an utter piece of nonsense!, as in ‘what’s the purpose of that new social tool?’

When will Facebook learn?

Community Guy

Sarah Lacy posted on TechCrunch about the Facebook Terms of Service debacle. You know, the one where Facebook (again) made major changes (again) without properly considering their users (again) or vetting the changes in front of the user base (again). Kelly essentially said its the latter; I think it’s a mixture of both, although Facebook’s privacy sensitivities have clearly come a long way since the News Feed and Beacon debacle days.

Government vs Social Media and YouTube bullying video

Laurel Papworth- Social Network Strategy

Today the Australian Government stepped up it’s campaign to hide the extent the epidemic of bullying that is occurring in schools by banning the evidence. As social media sites continue to turn over the rock of social evils and shine a light on social ills that we assumed were “rare&# or “exaggerated&# the Government’s response is to blame the medium. The filming is only part of the story – what about the millions of viewers?

Cisco WebEx Connect Questions

Collaborative Thinking

The evolving puzzle pieces will lead to an maturing SaaS, PaaS (Platform as a Service), and Cloud play.

More acquisitions - perhaps one of the mashup, or PaaS, or feed syndication platform vendors or a mobile player. Will Cisco deploy any Dojo widgets on top of Adobe AIR? Maybe the hosted version of Jive Clearspace?
