I agree
 
Why Google+ needs advertising.

My friend +Seth Fiegerman at Mashable wrote a good history of Google+. He calls Google+ a failure, but defines "failure" as the inability to "unseat" Facebook. And that's fair. (Every social company has failed to "unseat" them. Facebook's "monopoly on everybody" makes them unseatable.) 

Personally and selfishly, I don't care of Google+ crushes Facebook. I care that it exists, but to crush Facebook means that Google+ would have to become the mainstream brand, like McDonald's. Personally, I like quality. So I don't eat at McDonald's or spend more time than I have to at Facebook.com. 

Seth concludes that Google has given up on making Google+ a Facebook killer and has settled for Google+ to be a "Pinterest look-alike." I see what he's getting at. Pinterest and Google+ are clearly the prettiest, most appealingly designed social networks.

But that perspective fails to understand the HUGE difference between Pinterest, which is mostly about shopping aspirations, and Google+, which is mostly about substantive conversations about everything. 

In other words, Pinterest and Google+ are the same because they're beautiful. But Pinterest and Google+ are also opposites because one is frivolous and the other is often deeply substantive.

Seth does not join the "Google+ is dead" fantasy, but instead predicts that Google will phase it out in a few years. 

Trouble is, there is actually no way to predict that. If Google+ is thriving and serving multiple purposes for Google (as it is now), then they won't phase it out. 

The test isn't whether Google is a runaway success story like YouTube or Search. Google has more than 100 products that contribute significantly to Google as a company without being competition-crushing services like YouTube and Search.

Personally, I think Google+ has the ability to grow and grow. Twitter is committing suicide right now by chasing Facebook. Their Facebook envy will cause them to kill what's good about Twitter in a program to remake the service to copy Facebook. When that process is complete, they'll be a second-rate Facebook, but also become a second-rate Twitter. (The full column on this idea is coming Monday.) 

Pinterest may do OK going forward. They've got a nice niche (women).

Most of the remaining social networks will fumble along as eyeballs gravitate to messaging apps and video sites like YouTube. 

Meanwhile, the Internet desperately needs a great site where smart people can have meaningful, troll-free conversations about their passions and interests. Google+ fills a sweet niche for smart people. Quality is far, FAR more valuable than quantity when it comes to users. 

(And Google needs a great site where they can announce and promote things, interact with fans, provide glue to their wearable products and all the rest.)

But Google+ also needs advertising. For Google+ to take its place as a significant contributor to Google as a business, it needs to pull its own weight. 

In fact, Google+ could be an amazing advertising vehicle for the same reason that airports are so coveted among advertisers. It's an educated subset of people who are generally hard to reach through advertising. 

Google+ also could be a valuable proving ground for contextual advertising, including mobile contextual advertising. 

This is an unpopular idea. People want something for nothing, which is what we all get right now on Google+. (If you're unfamiliar with my opinion on advertising, which is that it's the morally superior form of online monetization, please read this: http://goo.gl/yJ4H0F ).

Anyway, give Seth's article a read and comment there if you like: http://goo.gl/5lvJRM 

And let's get some advertising up in here, Google!

Here's a great cause to support. The donations are picking up steam, and the goal is simply $10,000 to free the works of Oscar Brown, Jr. Please donate and please share to all your friends and network. Thank you.

This is from one of my very best friends, Africa Brown​. Her father is the legendary, Oscar Brown, Jr. During his life and career, he contributed so much to the world, and helped shape so many kids into amazingly talented artists, and opened the hearts and minds of so many people, and now his legacy is not being shared with the world. Please help her and her family finally end this nine year struggle.

Are Vinyl Subscription Clubs the Future of Analog Listening? http://blbrd.cm/Kk1LY3
Nick Alt anticipated the recent resurgence of vinyl pretty early on. For years, the Los Angeles-based musician and producer (he counts St. Paul Peterson of Prince's bands the Family and the Time as an acquaintance and did production for Pomplamoose's Nataly Dawn) has been buying two copies of every vinyl record. "I always buy one for me, and one for whatever this is going to be," says the founder of VNYL, a recently Kickstarter-funded rent-a-reco...

I think I will try it.
 
lemon & Coconut Oil Moisturizer

#anti - #aging   #oilmoisturizer   #beauty   #skincare  
Coconut Oil and Lemon two of my favourite things after Chocolate ofcourse . Coconut Oil has so many benefits that it makes me  sad that all those years of my life why did i not know of coconut oils existence Sigh. But knowing the multiple benefits of it now i use it in literally everything for instance as an eye make up remover, in making my home-made chocolate, for baking and today i will show you how i make my own mositurizer with coconut oil.

Lemons as  you know are  full of Vitamin C and my favourite part of it is how it helps in neutralizing the body’s pH balance.

So starting off i poured in 4 tbsp of coconut oil in a medium size bowl. Depending on the temperature where you live if its hot and the oil is in a liquid state put it in the freezer until it solidifies then take it out. The moisturizer will be made when the coconut oil is in its solid state.

After that squeeze in the lemons i added in juice of 2 lemons.

pro 1

At this point you guys can add anything you want like in the past i have added vitamin E oil, lavender oil, vanilla extract etc. You can add any essence but  i wanted to make a lemon version today so that’s what i went with.

Moving on to the part where the magic happens.

pro 2

With an electric hand mixer just whisk away the coconut oil and it will turn into a creamy, fluffy texture literally within minutes. When it becomes light and airy that’s when your moisturiser is all done.

This is the quickest way to make an all natural home-made moisturiser . Better then the store bought ones which are  loaded with unknown chemicals and preservatives.

So there you go how simple was that. Also  I had a lemon shaped container lying around i know i know the irony , so i added the mixture into the container. It can be stored in the fridge if the climate is hot or if where you live is a bit cooler it will be perfectly fine outside. It will stay good for several months as coconut oil has anti bacterial qualities and with the added lemon juice i wouldn’t be worried of it getting bad for several months
