Publishers better for social commerce than Facebook | New Media Age - http://www.nma.co.uk/lovett-...
The Telegraph Fashion’s latest approach – marrying content, commerce and social interaction – looks potentially like a more successful combination. TMG will lead with expert comment and editorial, then solicit user recommendation, bringing visitors into an authoritative conversation and disseminating across social networks. The publisher will build on its existing I Spied proposition – the ‘best’ fashion and beauty picked by its editorial experts – extending recommendation on the site to include ways of getting visitors to participate in the selection of products. - Jordan

Google+ could make Twitter the next Myspace | VentureBeat - http://venturebeat.com/2011...
So, how can Google go after the 21 million people who are actively publishing on Twitter, and, more importantly, the few thousands that own the majority of Twitter followers? These types of posters are generally publishers, and Google’s core competence is serving publishers. Publishers pay a lot of attention to Google, from search engine optimization to increase the ranking on Google searches, search engine marketing keyword ads to drive traffic, and on-site advertising solutions ranging from AdSense to DoubleClick. - Jordan

Did Google just sneak a foursquare competitor under our noses? - http://aboutfoursquare.com/did-goo...
Google snuck in a pretty savvy checkin service. If Google+ takes off, it could be a worthy competitor to foursquare and (especially) Facebook Places. Google Check-ins, as they appear to be calling it, shows up front and center in the mobile app. It’s actually featured more prominently than the “share” button that sits next to it. Clicking the “check in” button takes you to a list (from Google Places, of course) and a single click checks you in. Like the rest of Google+. the addition of circles offers a much more nuanced approach to privacy than services like foursquare or Facebook are able to offer. With foursquare you can choose only two levels of privacy: entirely private or shared with your entire circle of friends. Facebook lets you set a global privacy level for all your Places checkins, but there’s no choice for individual checkins. - Jordan

DIGIDAY:DAILY - Tumblr is Blowing Up - So When Will It's Business? - http://www.digidaydaily.com/stories...
The four-year-old company, which has amassed $30 million in funding, is undoubtedly growing at an exponential rate; Quantcast puts its unique monthly audience at over 27 million. Still most popular among the technorati and teen crowds, the platform boasts of over 21 million blogs that have yielded over 7 billion posts to date and over 8 million page views a month. Brands and publishers seem to feel free to let loose on Tumblr in ways they wouldn’t on Twitter and Facebook, possibly due to the site’s younger, artistically-driven audience.  MTV’s four-week-old Tumblr on Wednesday (June 29) carried the headline “Fuck Yeah” followed by a photo of multiple cats, as well as a photoshopped imaged dubbed the Hip Hop Food Pyramid. “We wanted to speak really authentically on Tumblr,” said Tom Fishman, MTV’s senior manager of social media. In fact, MTV met directly with Tumblr’s top executives before launching its presence to discuss tricks of the trade. - Jordan

The One Google Plus Feature Facebook Should Fear - http://www.allfacebook.com/the-one...
However, when I loaded up Google Finance as I do every morning, I suddenly realized that I was asking the wrong question. The reality is that users won’t have the option of not using Google Plus. Google already has more users than Facebook, over one billion. They aren’t going to suddenly leave Facebook in droves, they’re just going to spend more time on all the sites in Google’s network. That big notifications box in the top right of all Google sites is the reason why. - Jordan

Ryan Giggs super-injunction leaks drive over-50s to Twitter - Telegraph - http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technol...
As a result of the Ryan Giggs super-injunction row, Twitter enjoyed its highest-ever UK audience last month, with 6.1 million British people visiting the site, up 34 per cent on April’s figures, says Nielsen-UKOM, a UK online measurement company. During May 2011, 26.8 million Britons visited Facebook, which is the highest ever audience figure the social network has attracted in the UK, propelling it for the first time above MSN, Microsoft’s news and email hub, making it the second most popular site in the country behind Google. - Jordan

One Facebook fan = 20 web visits | Econsultancy - http://econsultancy.com/uk...
According to Robin Goad from Hitwise, each retailer on Facebook can expect to receive an average of 62,000 visits per month from Facebook, even if they have no fans.  To arrive at this figure of 20 visits, Hitwise took the top 100 retailers ranked in the Shopping and Classifieds category and benchmarked visits to their websites against the number of fans on their Facebook pages. The data for 12 weeks ending 18 June 2011 shows that fashion brands seem to be making the most of Facebook, with a much higher proportion of searches after a visit to the social network: - Jordan

Is Facebook peaking in the US? | FT Tech Hub | FTtechhub - Industry analysis – FT.com - http://blogs.ft.com/fttechh...
But in the US there was a drop for the first time in a year, from 155.2m to 149.4m during the month of May. Canada also lost 1.52m users, while the UK, Norway and Russia lost “more than 100,000”. That was all offset by big gains in Brazil, India, Mexico and Indonesia, Inside Facebook says, but “overall growth has been lower than normal for the second month straight, which is unusual”. - Jordan

Facebook loses members in major markets | News | New Media Age - http://www.nma.co.uk/news...
“By the time Facebook reaches around 50% of the total population in any country (depending on internet access rates in that country), growth generally slows to a halt.” Despite losing traffic in developed markets, the social network grew audiences by 11.8m overall and is nearing 700m in total. Facebook was growing by over 20m members a month until April but has since seen slower growth, even in its developing markets. Facebook’s most recent official member total is 500m, although analytics companies have estimated this to be over 600m globally. - Jordan

Why Groupon is Worth $25 Billion Dollars - steve's blog - http://stevecheney.posterous.com/why-gro...
The real innovation Groupon brought to the table wasn't in advertising deals per se, it was their ability to profit off of closing the attribution loop in online-to-offline commerce.  Google never had success (monetarily) with online to offline search, because you can’t go to a search box and carry that discovery process to your offline environment. Yes, you can absolutely use a search query to find a place to go, but when you get there no one knows that you found it on Google. The same can be said for services like Yelp. Yelp might drive people to restaurants, but it doesn’t benefit Yelp if merchants don’t attribute the new customer to Yelp. And how would they know? It’s not like you walk in the door and tell the restaurant owner you just located them on your iPhone via Yelp’s app. Foursquare hasn’t solved this either, despite having 250K merchants signed up and literally inventing the act of announcing your presence to the world. Only Groupon has closed this attribution loop. - Jordan

Prediction: Facebook Will Surpass Google In Advertising Revenues - http://techcrunch.com/2011...
eMarketer estimated Facebook’s ad revenues at almost $2 Billion in 2010 and over $4 Billion in 2011. The fundamental reason why I believe Facebook’s revenues will surpass Google is the untapped power of social advertising. The concept that your friend “likes” and endorses the content behind a particular ad unit changes the game. To take things further, as “like” buttons become ubiquitous across the web, user profiles are growing with data on what they do, buy, and endorse. - Jordan

Foursquare and Facebook Places ‘don’t appeal to teenagers’ - Telegraph - http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technol...
Sixty-seven per cent of the 1,000 11 to 18 year olds polled by Dubit, who had heard of these location services, did not understand them or feel that they are safe to use. Related Articles * Facebook Places 'will take a while to catch on' in the UK 17 Sep 2010 Facebook Places emerged as the more popular service in the study, with 30 per cent of teens using it, while only five per cent use its rival Foursquare. Only one per cent of those polled had heard of smaller services such as Gowalla. Forty-five per cent of teens are avoiding location services as they consider them unsafe. Other reasons given included 28 per cent believing their phones could not run the software and 16 per cent saying they do not use them as their friends are not using them either. - Jordan

REPORT: Facebook Posts Are Best On Thursday - http://www.allfacebook.com/report-...
Two weeks of testing means Buddy Media only charted engagement over two Thursdays — is this truly a long enough period to establish a trend? Past reports have shown Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and even the weekend as the best days of the week to post. However, days with the highest engagement vary by industry. For example, the media industry’s highest fan engagement day is Saturday, followed closely by Sunday, with a huge dip in engagement on Mondays. In the business and finance industry, Wednesday receives the highest engagement, with a gradual downswing Friday-Sunday. - Jordan
