These are my links for May 4th through May 14th:
- Facebook Finally Calls Meeting on Privacy Strategy « Black Web 2.0 – I guess when you have over 400 million users you can afford to be arrogant – as Facebook is clearly demonstrating. Yes, there has been a flurry of news about people closing their accounts, but this represents a fraction of a percent of the total user base. I think the whole privacy thing is lost on the majority of users, not helped by the unnecessarily complex settings on Facebook. However, continued bad press like this – warranted or not – is not doing the company any good. That other company that 'does no evil' must be loving every minute of this!
- Social Media Classroom – Welcome to the Social Media Classroom and Collaboratory. It’s all free, as in both “freedom of speech” and “almost totally free beer.” We invite you to build on what we’ve started to create more free value.
