Forbes: “Facebook’s Makeover Is A Little Bit Scary”

“At last year’s F8, Facebook announced the “like” button. One year later the ‘like’ button looks like the work of cave men. Starting today, Zuckerberg announced that you won’t be able to just ‘like’ a song, artist, movie, news story, exercise or recipe. You’ll listen to a song, buy concert tickets, watch a movie, read a news article, run in Golden Gate Park and cook a recipe. Your entire life– and all your social interactions– will now be broadcast on Facebook. In Facebook vernacular: ‘Your apps. Now with friends.’” Von Nicole Perlroth, Forbes > Weiter bei Forbes

“Google’s quest to organize the world’s information will no longer include one of society’s most important and sensitive sources of data: our health records.

“Last year, when we looked at the top real-time Web products of 2009, we predicted that in 2010 the real-time Web was “likely to become a standard expectation on sites all around the world”. Indeed, as we look back on the last year we find that many of the big innovations in terms of the real-time Web come in the form of implementations by companies like Google and Facebook. At the same time, there are still smaller players in the realm that have changed how (and how fast) we expect information on the Web to move and people interact.” Weiterlesen bei ReadWriteWeb

Link: “Blackberry Empathy Concept”

“For their sponsored project held by RIM Blackberry at the Art Center College of Design, designers Kiki and Daniel had to incorporate an interface that integrates human emotions with the concept of social networking. The result of this exercise was the Empathy concept. The phone is used in conjunction with a biometrics ring that is worn by the user to collect “emotional data”. Spec-wise it features a transparent OLED screen that becomes transparent when not in use and opaque during interaction. The front is all touch surface, while on the back there is a physical keyboard.” Weiterlesen bei Yanko Design. Weitere Informationen: The Dotted Line (‘Your Blackberry can do what?”)

Link: “Defacebook”

“In August, I sat down with the founders of the new social-networking system Diaspora. Earlier that day, they’d given me a peek at the prototype for the service, which looked familiar: It had “status statements” and comments and photos, displayed on a clean, neutral interface. But as the name suggests, their project was intended less as an imitation of Facebook than as an escape route from it — a path to freedom for those who had come to fear the dark side of the social network.” Weiterlesen bei New York Magazine
