We have to look out for each other when people share sensitive information or photos. But that requires using these social tools against the grain of their design.
The people you're connected to on social media are the guardians of your information, and vice versa.

Hello how are you? ........ oh by the way, there’s a nice hotel located in one of the busiest business district in Kuta bali. Surrounded by shops, restaurants, cafes, gift stalls, it is very popular for tourists and business people alike, who want to be close to everything, literally!

Owner is very keen to sell quickly.

Restaurante Dona Tomas
5004 Telegraph Avenue, Oakland, CA 94609
For years, this has been the best fancy Mexican food in the Bay. (Also, my favorite restaurant.) It still is really, really good, but it's not quite as amazing as in years past. Now there's new competition up in Berkeley, too, the new Oaxacan joint, Comal.

Oh, and they make a mean drink.

I love this from +Becca Rosen . Crowdsourced photographs of the aurorae caused by the solar storm that hit earth this week.
Norway has been witness to a dazzling light show this week. Here, we get a chance to see it from afar.

+Sarah Rich and I voyaged to the west edge of Louisiana to profile Moonbot Studios, a wild and wildlly talented group of animators who are building the narrative iPad apps of the future. This is a serious #longread, weighing in at 5,000 words, but we promise it's worth it.

This is even better than name dropping the books you've read at parties. Simply open "War and Peace" at page 723, take a photo and post #throughglass  with the message 'such luscious prose.'

I like this here #newgoogleplus look. Not sure if it'll make a huge difference, but it's nice to have a better-looking product.

It's an improvement, but would a little font flexibility be so hard? My kingdom for a serif.

Woof. Came back here to upload a video of my niece and then share it with some people. So not intuitive. So hard to make basic stuff work they want you want it to.

The easiest way to upload and share pix and clips is to just let your Android phone do instant uploads. Then toggle and share to private circles of friends. Works for me but I'm living in Droidland.

I've been thinking a lot about magazine brands. Here, I lay out the data and I'm looking at and suggest the following definition for brands.

"Brands are probabilistic now. The primary power of a brand is to increase the probability that someone clicks on, upvotes, or links to a story associated with your brand."
A working hypothesis for what a brand is in today's media fractured and pulsating ecosystem

+Edward Cotton I couldn't disagree more, actually. When what you're counting is uniques, the Gawker model breaks down. You need big stories that drive out into the wider Internetsphere... Big stories require time and effort. And that's what The Atlantic has done well. We drive engagement with regular, fast posts and we drive reach with big stories.

That said, I'm all in support of other metrics. I think time on page makes a lot of sense, but its measurement is also very inaccurate. I think comments and other types of engagement on social media are good markers of quality. But the sad thing I've encountered is that uniques get you in the door. They are the condition for being able to sell the audience's quality and engagement.
