World's largest swing.

You loved playing on the swing as a child. You're all grown up now; time to find a bigger swing!

Props to +Jesse Stay

I just gave +Jason Calacanis some advice for how to clean up his Facebook feed

I know that many of you don't like Facebook, but I've spent quite a bit of time there lately "tuning" my feed and here's my tips for Jason (he wants to delete all his friends and start over in order to get a good feed). Those tips are at https://www.facebook.com/RobertScoble/posts/10150691983464655

I wish Google+ gave me the same options for "cleaning" my feed up. Hopefully soon!

CIRCLE MANAGEMENT
---------------------------------------
+Margie Hearron pointed out earlier today that +Sharon Vaknin, an editor at CNET.com with over 12,500 followers, is struggling to filter the noise from her stream. And I want to help! =D

I have very carefully built my circles around a system that I am now going to share with you. This is my secret weapon to circle organization.

I'm a very visual person, so I worked really hard to make this slideshow to (hopefully) explain the process as clearly as I can.

May it inspire you to grow your circles to include a lively network of active people!!!

Many great thanks to all the early adopters who provided tips when I first joined last July! I'm standing on the shoulders of giants!

Yes, Google+ is Google's answer to Facebook, but not in the directly competitive sense many journalists assume. Google+ is core to Google's mission "to organize the world's information", and that's a better frame for thinking about this service.

Here are 35 slides to help kickstart a different perspective on what Google+ really is - a "shared interest graph."

I tried to make this tour as easy as possible with some nice images along the way. Credits for all those nice images are on the last slide.
