Facebook users watch 4 bil video streams/day, 4x # a year ago & matching YouTube http://fortune.com/2015/06/03/facebook-video-traffic/ Updating FB chapter for my book :)
Facebook's video traffic has reached 4 billion daily views, making the social network YouTube's first real rival in online video—and an even tougher contender in the battle for digital ad dollars.

Messaging social media experts (especially those w/Asia ties): Struggling to figure out why winner-take-all dominance for Facebok in nearly every market (save China, Russia/CIS, Iran), BUT NOT in mobile apps. From Meeker’s slide 6 of top 10 most used apps are messaging & all are centi-million user big - multiple winners (so far).  WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Line, Viber, KakaoTalk, WeChat. WhatsApp is big globally as SMS replacement, Messenger for FB users, & WeChat is big in China, but Line, Viber, and KakaoTalk seem to overlap in S.Korea, Japan, & other mkts.  I don’t use these latter apps. Any thoughts on why multiple apps survive? Does it segment on nation (language), use scenario, both?  Are there many users using multiple messaging apps? Why? Thanks for your insights! BTW if you haven't seen this years Mary Meeker slides - always a must-recommend for our students: http://www.kpcb.com/internet-trends

Fascinating look at fake follows, bogus likes, and digital influence inflation. Long read, but like a crime show http://www.newrepublic.com/article/121551/bot-bubble-click-farms-have-inflated-social-media-currency
Click farms are changing what it means to have social media influence.

BC alum @bmadigan11, Ops Head @tapingo(order ahead/delivery), shares the firm seeks an E. Coast Growth Manager http://bit.ly/1cAh9dG
There's something wrong with the way we buy things. Too often, doing something as routine as getting your morning cup of coffee involves standing in long lines, having to recite an order and spell your name, and waiting yet again. We're looking to change all that. Tapingo is a fast-growing startup that is looking to revolutionize the way we engage in commerce. We believe mobile technology can eliminate all the wasted time and stress so that yo...
