““When you leave the house, the three things you usually take with you are your keys, your wallet, and your phone,” says Nadav Aharony. One of those three things is a “sensing and processing machine,” he says. (Hint: not your keys.) The smartphone in your pocket knows where you are, who you’re with, how fast you’re moving, whether you’re standing up or sitting down.” Von Andrew Phelps > Weiter bei Nieman Journalism Lab

Link: “Is Google+ a Ghost Town, and Does It Matter?”

“Google+ is a lonely place. At least according to a new study that paints the social networking site as a virtual tumbleweed town. Using information culled from the public timelines of 40,000 randomly selected members, data analysis firm RJMetrics found that the Google+ population, which currently numbers 170 million, is largely disengaged, with user activity rapidly decaying—at least when it comes to public posts.” Von Caroline Winter > Weiter bei Bloomberg Businessweek

Wired: “Facebook Is Ready for Your New Closeup. Are You?”

“Earlier this year, Daniel Ek, the CEO of the music service Spotify, was in a car with Mark Zuckerberg. Ek was visiting the Facebook founder in California while the two companies were working together on what eventually would be part of the massive announcement made by Zuckerberg today at his company’s F8 developer’s conference. It’s an initiative that will unleash new waves of applications on Facebook that will greatly enhance the power of the service — already a major part of people’s lives — by adding a limitless stream of lifestyle data that people can use to share and, ultimately, define themselves with a profile built on a stunning amount of personal information.”
