A survey that went out Tuesday morning by the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) had a lot of people talking about what the findings meant. The ACSI survey is nothing new, however this is the first year they included some of the social networking sites. And the results conclude that, drum roll please: Facebook sucks. But what does it all mean, Basil? (Austin Powers voice) I'm not convinced it means anything. Facebook is about to hang the sign of over 500 million served, remember? Let's put it in the context of the Internet Social Media sites that were surveyed this... Read More >

The price of being too popular--there's absolutely no way to please everybody, and you'll have to compromise your values somewhere along the line if you ever want to cash in on all that popularity. I'm not talking about a celebrity, but I might as well be. Facebook is the superstar of trendy corporate wonders.

The Days of Anti-Facebook Arrive with Diaspora

Facebook Banned

The widespread backlash against Facebook has had another effect--coding. Four geeks at NYU decided that Facebook's divergence from privacy should be countered with a social network that doesn't require constant sharing of data in such a public manner. The enthusiasm with which Facebook has taken to opening user content with sneaky default settings has left a bad taste in many users' mouths, including these four students that have set out to create a more private network. Called Diaspora, the anti-Facebook social network will be a way to communicate with friends, without having to compromise your privacy to a large corporation,... Read More >

For Facebook's brand, that awe and allure of exploration is something it's banking on. Going further than any socially-oriented platform has gone, the new Open Graph will integrate third party data into Facebook further than ever, while the Social Plugins... Read More >

Who said that you cannot be a gamer and a social media addict at the same time? If you didn't know it by now, (and few do), Xbox LIVE, the online gaming and entertainment service for Xbox 360, is more than a closed online forum for Xbox 360 addicts. A gold (paid) membership to this online service adds Netflix streaming, photo sharing and Facebook, Twitter, Last.fm and Zune connect for all adult members.

Social media has been in need of an overhaul for some time now, but we never really considered what that meant. Until now. With AOL considering the sale of its once-treasured Bebo network and Digg having a CEO shake-up with big changes on the way, this year is bringing another round of major shifts in the way social networks are marketed and monetized. AOL, which acquired Bebo about two years ago for a hefty $850 million, may be having second thoughts. Having since split from Time Warner and undergone a re-branding phase, AOL is still in the process of figuring... Read More >

What is language when it comes to branding? Sometimes it can be everything. Other times, it can be confusing. In the case of Facebook and all the brands that market through its social network, language can be all of the above. Facebook has announced plans to change the language of "Become a Fan" to "Like" as it appears on brands' public profile pages, hoping to encourage more interaction between individual users and those brands. What Facebook is after, according to their spokesperson, is a more consistent interaction between users and public profile pages. As PCWorld points out, the difference between... Read More >

Facebook is in the news again today having apparently surpassing Google's main search page in traffic, at least for a minute or two. However interesting the news might be however, a lot depends on how we measure traffic, as well as what happens when people arrive at our destinations. Facebook, now in deep to investors to the tune of $716 million, has since its inception 6 years ago still not brought in significant revenue, if any at all. Facebook, regardless of its viability, is one of the most interesting startup companies ever launched. The core value of the platform being... Read More >
