Facebook gives up on automatically posting everything you do online

Good. Hopefully I also stop getting those game updates…

Wow…Facebook is trying to compete with the Snapchat crowd…again. I wonder how this one will fare.

Matt Haughey, Why I Love Twitter and Barely Tolerate Facebook

Business Insider

Google+ looks awesome! I like Facebook but I can REALLY see me using this: Circles seems like the next evolution of Facebook Groups and Twitter lists, Huddle is group messaging tied into a social network (unlike current group messaging apps), Sparks is a content discovery and sharing feature, Hangout is the group video chat which NO ONE is doing, and Instant Upload is instant photo cloud storage. It has all the ingredients to make it successful…except no one is using it yet.

True. It just came out and is closed beta. But the real test is going to come when it’s open for the public to use. The question is: will people come from Facebook to use this?
