There is an impersonations video going around that I think is pretty lame so I am posting a really great one instead. There's just no comparison.

Hoping your Friday is going well and that Friday in Norway gets better.

I used to be the official cartoonist of LiveJournal. I think Google+ needs an official comic. They should hire me to draw it. Then they’ll really be cool.

One Mystery Solved: How to get more information displayed on your G+ people card thing

Earlier today, I asked if anyone knew how to get more (or different) information on the little rectangular box that appears when you hover over a G+ users' avatar. As I don't always know who a person is, just having an employer name -- or nothing -- makes it difficult to know what topics (and thus, Circles) I may want to share and receive information with them. Thanks to +Simon Kemp , I now know how to hack more info onto the card. I found him with the help of +Bob Stepno , +Martha Carnahan and +Lynette Young

Still a mystery: Google's official name of those people card rectangular box things.

A good discussion about privacy and social networks.

Privacy Versus Innovation

What do Americans value more than apple pie and reality TV? You got it: privacy. However, as our country rapidly becomes a global community of social networks, streaming video and 010011s, the term “privacy” begins to take on a different meaning. With the burgeoning technology of our globalized society and the increasing pressure to connect in the digital world, the information shared in the virtual world is expanding to distinctly personal levels making many Americans feel that their privacy is threatened and has literally become byte sized. Facebook profiles declare favorite movies, current activities, and random quirks like profound love of penguins.

With the introduction of Google+’s social network we are given yet another tool to connect with the ever shrinking universe. But when creating your Google profile there’s one important detail you may not be aware of: there will be no private Google+ profiles.

If you choose to keep your profile private, Google will simply delete it after July 31, 2011. According to Google, Public Profiles are used to help people find and connect with you online, making them the driving force behind Google+. Private profiles do not allow for open sharing and connecting, which is not conducive to Google’s product mission. Ahh yes, the other things Americans value: Making money.

This private/public issue makes for a crucial difference between Google+ and Facebook; on Facebook, you can have a completely private profile, which won’t even come up in Google’s search results or even Facebook search results (for people who aren’t your friends). In contrast, to use Google+, you will be required to at least make your full name and gender public.

In a time where network sharing is becoming a key part of our social and business worlds, does making the move to mandatory public profiles seem like a business savvy move or a factor that will limit the number of users who desire to join Google+? Is it time to throw in the towel and let the world know we love penguins?

Thoughts?

Anyone want to start a raffle on how long Google+ will be in beta? Google is notorious for loooong betas. Gmail was in beta for FIVE years! I don't think Google+ will remain in beta for five years, but it wouldn't surprise me if it remained in beta for a year+

Just speculation, but Google+ will integrate Google Android Apps into their social network... If you check out the Chrome browser you can already install Apps onto Chrome. I predict that those Chrome Apps will become Google+ Apps!
