apple says this for several quarters now? - Ludwig Ederle
Facebook App called "Paper" - Ian Waring
It would be interesting to see if Paper will ultimately be a cross-platform app or a "closed-garden." I think it would have a huge impact if people will be able to post on Twitter, for example. - Nir Ben Yona

I couldn't download it on iPad last night Kevin - Francine Hardaway
You can look at how LinkedIn has buried Pulse News within. Don't care for that Yahoo! approach. - Alex de Soto
I had it working on my old Nexus 7 tab - Ian Waring
I did too, but then I wiped it to give to my son - Kevin Marks
That's the lean startup methodology - Francine Hardaway
Facebook Must be the most expensive App Company in the world - Moe Glitz from iPhone
main thing is that the apps get those who'd leave to keep using their services from a different interface - Jerome Hughes
Poke, Home. Failures - Moe Glitz from iPhone
I don't use anything on FB but the newsfeed - Francine Hardaway

i'm always amazed at how much I love this conversation ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
their events don't pipe into calendar any more - Kevin Marks
Apps are like "appendages" to the OS? - Alex de Soto
and they'll migrate behaviors from the main app to other apps as they find them more useful for those behaviors - Jerome Hughes
I have one private Group on Facebook (Social Media Nonprofit Friends) I use for professional development, just-in-time answers. But that just happens to be a great community - we would be comfortable using any tool to communicate. The rest of FB is meh to me. - Laura Norvig
Two datapoints, Steve - Francine Hardaway
Look how differently each of us use FB - Francine Hardaway
Ben Evans and app paradigms: http://ben-evans.com/benedic... - Ian Waring
ask a fish about the ocean - Jerome Hughes
Steve, she uses Instagram...that's for sure. - Nir Ben Yona
bingo keith. kids know what apps they use. maybe she just doesn't resonate with the word app. - Laura Norvig
"How do you send messages to a friend...?" Not, what app...? - Tom Guarriello
Exactly - Francine Hardaway
Ben Evans: Google is the first to advance interaction models that are not remotely webby (such as Now) - Ian Waring

the back of the fork - Kevin Marks
A brand is a promise - Francine Hardaway
And how @Tina - J.C. Bouvier
Oh you Englismen... back of the fork - Tina Chase Gillmor
This generation's feast moves to the latest and greatest wherever it is... - J.C. Bouvier
That would fail like poke did - Francine Hardaway
And (pop) culture - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone
On the Paper app itself, how can they claim a 'distraction' free environment w/out ads? Are they charging the outlets like Atlantic & NatGeo for an extended schema of data from Paper users? - J.C. Bouvier
Totally - Francine Hardaway
But that isn't brand loyalty - Francine Hardaway
I use FB messenger more than I thought i ever would - Tina Chase Gillmor
Not sure that people will necessarily use these apps in 5/10 years (FB, Twitter, Instagram). - Nir Ben Yona
I use FB messenger a lot because I can reach people that way - Francine Hardaway

combination of utility and popularity makes an app go. - Laura Norvig
I use FB messenger cos twitter won't let me dm links any more - Kevin Marks
you a quality loyal Robert. If Uber's quality sinks, you will jump.... and fast - Tina Chase Gillmor
Facebook's mobile app wouldn't stop demanding that I install the damn messenger app...so I finally did...I think the multiple app strategy is their plan, but I don't think it can be a holistic solution for them... - J.C. Bouvier
I see no point why brands should disappear. The more disruption the more you need brands as a guideline to quality and pop culture, no? - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone
fb messenger on android is really handy - Kevin Marks
Ben Evans: This is the key reason why the new social messaging apps are so interesting - not because they have users and inventory now, but because they can be vectors for some of this sort of behaviour - a third acquisition, discovery and distribution channel besides Facebook and Google. - Ian Waring
Amazon is a good example: Different apps for different tasks but a universal Web presence for all. - Alex de Soto
Agree Kevin - Francine Hardaway
I love FB messenger. - Robert Scoble
But brand alone is nothing - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone
Uber is in legal trouble see my link above - Charles Carrico
FB has a terrible brand, but the nectwork effect keeps us on it - Francine Hardaway
+1 Keith This is how brands are built: association - Tom Guarriello
this is true. i dont like that either - Tina Chase Gillmor
They've all been spam - Francine Hardaway
Twitter DM would be cooler if it worked like Friendfeed - if you could message more than one person privately at once. - Laura Norvig
which FB messenger does enable - Kevin Marks
Francine: I don't know. I think Facebook's brand is on a major rebound. People are finally figuring out it's better than Twitter or Google+ in many ways. - Robert Scoble
Wow, Robert, I totally disagree. Facebook is getting quieter and quieter. They are making it really hard for Pages content to be seen in feeds. Teens are leaving. - Laura Norvig
Laura: not in my world. - Robert Scoble
Not among kids, Robert. And actually not even among "normal" people my age. People groan about FB, and use it reluctantly - Francine Hardaway
There's no joy in using FB - Francine Hardaway
i'm gonna hace to bring Steve's monitor up about 6 inches so he doesnt look down when he's talking to everyone - Tina Chase Gillmor
I don't think Facebook is struggling on mobile at all - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone

he's gonna blow! - Tina Chase Gillmor
Tina: You must find a thicker John Lennon book. - Alex de Soto
Funny how Joy comes and goes. Path seemed joyous at first. Lots of folks had joy with Tumblr. - Laura Norvig
I think Robert's right. FB is like McDonald's. Everybody hates it. - Tom Guarriello
Maybe they just love the Ritz, Robert - Francine Hardaway
no, that's because of YOUR brand, Robert! - Laura Norvig
He's blowing right now!!! - Tina Chase Gillmor
Facebook notifications are pretty good. - Alex de Soto
+1 TOm., It;s not dying, but it's not joyous either - Francine Hardaway
yawn - Ian Waring
FB is a utility now. - Francine Hardaway
GO ROBERT!! - J.C. Bouvier
FB isn't dying and isn't fun. QED - Francine Hardaway

I totally agree with robert - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone

Laura it has NOTHING to do with my brand. i talk with hundreds of normal people and watch their behaviors. - Robert Scoble
We chat on Facebook - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone
capture the people who are leaving because of inefficiencies in the thing they won't allow you to change - Jerome Hughes
Dale - 400m users. Mainly in Asia. WhatsApp has a similar number in Europe and US - Keith Teare
The people I just showed you online are NOT there because I am. - Robert Scoble
I'd agree with the McDonald's analogy. Popular but not cool. - Laura Norvig
WeChat is china first - Kevin Marks
I won't get it -iPhone only - Kevin Marks
no doubt that the most liukely place to find just about anyone is on the Facebook chat list - Dale Lature
they're trying to make sure the back end is for everybody, as everybody being available from the backend is their advantage - Jerome Hughes

Gillmor gang is on mine - Ian Waring
I'm big Feedly user - Tom Guarriello

For sure Paper will compete with FlipBoard...everyone is trying for better news...I wonder if Yahoo! built their news app in response to Paper or vice versa? - J.C. Bouvier
Feedly is great. - Alex de Soto
I only used flipboard on iPad - when my iPad was stolen, I'm finished with flip and use individual apps on iphone - Charles Carrico
Feedly is No.1 traffic source for many of the big websites. - Nir Ben Yona
Let's not go there ... - Laura Norvig
@Tom, have Feedly, but never seem to have time to open it on iOS or OS X... - J.C. Bouvier
But Flipboard is visual. - Alex de Soto
the visual aspect of Flipboard doesn't work on iPhone - screen is too small - Charles Carrico
RSS is Dead, Long Live RSS - for the consumer, it's about what flows in the pipes - Jerome Hughes
Medium will never get large - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Medium looks like a fad to me, but hey, I could be wrong - Tom Guarriello
I'd use Tumblr rather than Medium (too San Francisco-ish), - clive boulton
No mention of Super Bowl on the show - Moe Glitz from iPhone
I use Flipboard on Nexus 5 and iPhone and it works fine for me. Easy to flip those items up. Does give my thumb a workout though. And it actually works well on Windows 8 too. - Alex de Soto
I'm w/you @Moe, too long form...people see paragraphs and glaze over...'TIme to read' is helpful, if everyone reads at a Master's candidate level... - J.C. Bouvier

Tumblr with Disqus comments - clive boulton
Kevin: sorry for talking over you. - Robert Scoble
Tech-the new Beauty Pageant - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Don't mistake me, I really like Medium...however if the focus of the tool is the display of words in text at a length of more than a Facebook status update; that isn't where the traffic trends are pointing for mass consumption on a scale like Facebook... - J.C. Bouvier
Clive: Not gonna happen. David don't like it. - Nir Ben Yona
