Interesting - I found it surprising to see Twitter login usage so low! But commenters made some good points - would be nice to see this without bot activity and alter it to remove folks who never log out of Google...
 
Facebook continues to be the dominant platform for websites that offer social logins, but Google is gaining ground in the latest report from +Janrain. http://mklnd.com/XJNg1H

Exactly. Last I checked, using a public figure's image as an ad without consent of that individual violates a whole host of laws in the US. Not sure how this is going to fly for very long...
 
So Instagram is now going to use photos taken by its users in advertising, and they may or may not disclose to viewers when the advertising is happening.

I have no idea how this will work, and I'm once again glad that I don't use Instagram... but I know a lot of people who do, and many of those people are celebrities to some degree.

Here's what I'm wondering: if Kaley Cuoco uses Instagram to share a photo of her and Melissa Rauch doing something silly, does that mean that Instagram can take that photo and use it to advertise for something silly without compensating them for what becomes a use of their likeness for commercial purposes? I can see that being a pretty serious shitstorm if it happens.

This sort of dovetails with another concern I have about the automatic opt-in nature of much of our digital life: if I'm in someone's address book, and they use an app that grants the developer full, unfettered access to their address book, I've now had my information given without my consultation or consent to a developer, and I never even knew it was happening. 

Just as we have a "do not track" option for our webbrowsing habits, we're going to need to have something similar for other aspects of our increasingly-digital lives: from contact information to our location to moving and still images of ourselves. Because it's no long enough for me to be careful with my opt-ins and online sharing; now I have to ensure that every single person around me is careful, as well.

There's probably something in the terms of service that says they have a right to sell the pictures that go through the service. I don't use Instagram myself, though, so I wouldn't know.

Just a heads up for Instagram users. The Big Brother experience is beginning.
 
Beginning January 2013, your Instagram data will be Facebook's data, too.

My latest post on the +Pixel Point Press blog shows you how to target a segment of your LinkedIn company page followers when you post an update. Boost your lead gen efforts and address localization issues all in one fell swoop!

A little bit of what I've been doing lately. More at helppamfightcancer.org
A modest online community is garnering unprecedented support for Pamela Weisfeld, a young mother of two in Jerusalem who was recently diagnosed with four types of cancers.

Dare we ask?
 
Do I ask Google if there was an update yesterday?

Interesting - similar to Facebook, but this sounds more effective.
 
It appears that Google is testing out a new feature for Google+ users that will help keep them in touch with their most important friends. A new feature “Get Notifications” will help users “Never miss another post." http://mklnd.com/Xsdoyc

just saw it as well. of course my circles dont translate to 'those i'd want notifications from and those i wouldn't' so i'd have to make a new circle. but still. its a great idea.

Some great insight here by Rand.
 
Is "Optimization" What's Wrong with SEO?

The good news is that online activity influences consumer behavior for brick and mortar stores. The bad news is that email is still 3x as effective as social media. Actually, that's just a fact. The bad news is that many marketers are against using email campaigns to drive foot traffic and sales.
 
+Wanderful Media released findings from a shopping survey last week, and discovered that 91% of respondents “have gone into a store as a result of an online experience.” Email is the most common channel to have sent people into stores, followed by coupons. http://mklnd.com/XzDtWA

I know. Isn't it strange that we're more concerned with being passe than with being good at what we do?

Food for thought...
 
Really interesting tweet from +Alasdair Allan:

One interesting trend for @kickstarter is that "kickstart" is, just as "google" before it, is becoming a verb. "We can kickstart…" #MakeHIW

It occurs to me that Twitter spawned new verbs as well (though it's tweet, not twitter), but that Facebook has not. Is that meaningful? Time will tell.
