Searching for certain people, places, or things produces a box of facts alongside the regular results. The Knowledge Graph is already starting to appear in a few other Google products, and could be used to add intelligence to all of the company’s software.” Von Tom Simonite > Weiter bei Technology Review

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.”

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
