I've been following the news that some employees at Facebook suppressed conservative trending topics. This has gotten a lot of attention across all major media outlets. But what alarmed me, at least at first is when I learned that over 30% of folks depend on Facebook as the place they depend on to get daily news.
But then I realized that often, I use Twitter and it's trending topics list to see what is going on in the world on a daily basis. This got me curious so I decided to run a poll to see what my social media friends and followers use to get their daily news. The survey is mobile friendly.
How do you get your news
I was going to lunch and got to my truck to find another truck trying to snuggle. The Nissan was so close I couldn't climb in mine without denting/scratching the Nissan. Yes, I was angry! So I headed back to the office with a tag number. It was moved to the left about 4 feet when I was leaving this afternoon.
Twitter turned 10 years old today. I've been tweeting almost the whole time. (June of 06, is when I joined) I've seen so many user driven changes.The @reply, the #hashtag or RT hadn't even become the norm of the service. I enjoyed reading all the history posts from tech sites and the pondering of where the service is heading. It continues to outpace National News Organizations and it is very powerful for celebrities to communicate with fans. BUT it still hasn't figured out a sure fire way to be profitable. This is one service however, that really has grown because of the user base and not because the powers that be have built this great tool. I don't know where Twitter will be 10 years from now. But I'm betting that someone will figure out how to make something as simple as a 140 character text message profitable. Twitter has proven that such a service is a very powerful tool indeed.
Every weekday it's the same. My best friend climbs up on the couch as I get ready for work. She snores as I bounce from room to room to head out the door. Barely aware that I am leaving, she manages enough strength to raise her head enough to acknowledge that I have to go and she doesn't.
By day I try to keep a Chemical Company safe. But on my time, I seem to have an obsession with Technology. I've been following mobile advancements in Technology since the mid-90s. I've used Palm OS, Windows Mobile, iOS and Android devices. With this experience comes a lot of opinion. I offer those opinions here.
