Google Has Given Birth to Its Own Parent Company, Alphabet  

Google has gotten so big that it's formed a company to become its own new parent.
Google CEO +Larry Page  said Monday that he and co-founder Sergey Brin have created Alphabet, which will effectively become a holding company consisting of smaller companies including Google.

Is this a form of Google's Knowledge Graph showing snippet Data for a Brand?      

I noticed on next to the +Moz url on the right is the name Moz and when click on it, a pop description appears. It seems to be giving a Wikipedia type description of the website. Is this feature part of the knowledge Graph?   Have you seen this +Eric Enge  or +Bill Slawski

Snapchat Lost a Ton of Money Last Year

Snapchat Lost a Ton of Money Last Year

In 2013, teenage attention-pit Snapchat turned down a $3 billion buyout offer from Facebook, which is only not an insane and arrogant decision if you’re going to reap so much profit that you’re eventually worth more than that. Internal financial documents obtained by Gawker show Snapchat was very far from profitable last year.

It's not unheard of to lose this type of money as you spin up a large platform business. But I'm just not sure Snapchat is well suited as a branding or ad platform, which casts a different light on these numbers.

When I was looking for a new shared office space for my co-founded startup Vab Media Web Design and SEO Marketing Firm, I evaluated several options, including a so called *free* space from a well-known business tech incubator. I chose Cowork|rs's because of their helpful community and how the management runs it. It is one of the single best decisions I’ve made for my career and my company's revenue. We have grown by 200 percent over the last year. .

Went here last night for drinks, met the former NBA basketball player Larry Johnson, who he is a curator, The drinks were moderately priced, considered how high-end the new rooftop lounge is, St Cloud. The view of the Ball Drop at One Times Square is pretty impressive.

I love this WeWork location, This was the first one that I got a chance to visit, and I fell in love. Andrew Young one of Wework's evangelists, brought me here with his Startup NYC event, which I was so grateful for. I loved meeting many of Wework's creative members. If I was to describe the Charging Bull atmosphere I would say, "perfect size, great people, fast internet, good micro brews and coffee, nice networking events, and the perfect mix of networking and focus time for you to get the job done.

I love this place. The happy hour menu is quite affordable. The duck appetizer is delightful. I took two different dates here. I highly recommend it.

Went here for a date last night, I must say this is a very swanky wall street type of a place. I loved the old school decor. The velvet red couches were nice. The drinks and food were on the pricey NYC side. If you are there with good company then it makes it all worth it.

This is the WeWork headquarters, which has an amazing layout and design. I love the giant Gong in the main hangout room when you first enter the community space. The food and unlimited coffee are so nice. This place has a very hip and funky design. The best part about it is the energy that you feel from all the startups and companies that work here. I highly recommend this place if you want an affordable, collaborative work environment.
