    Favoring Google Plus over Facebook

    While Twitter remain my social network of choice, I've struggled over the years with Facebook. For me personally, there is something about Facebook that has rubbed me the wrong way. Facebook's user interface has always felt "cluttered" to me and the addition of "social advertisement" this past year hasn't helped win me over either. More importantly, the seemingly never ending changes to both Facebook's privacy policy and privacy tools has left me very uncomfortable. These days, I'm only on Facebook because my closest friends are on Facebook. In short, with Facebook I feel like I'm a hostage as it may be the only way I keep close ties with friends unwilling to try Twitter or Google+.

    Perhaps I was always vulnerable to drinking the Google Kool-Aid. Not only disillusioned with the current state of social media, but also ashamed that I didn't see the value of social media from the start. Not only does Google offer an alternative to Facebook but it also offers you an opportunity to be an "early adopter". For many the question remains, is it worth leaving or diluting your current investment in Facebook as you increasingly invest more time and content into Google+? For me, the answer was obvious as I see Google+ as a game changer for social media and quite frankly CMS Report has historically done a lousy job supporting its Facebook page. Google+ offers the opportunity to do social media well from the start and to avoid yet another missed opportunity.

  • Search for Georgia: how an open source CMS is helping press freedom

    Search for Georgia: how an open source CMS is helping press freedom

    The country of Georgia has not traditionally been an easy place to make news. Yet, despite being ranked only 105th of 179 countries in the latest World Press Freedom Index (compiled by Reporters Without Borders), a interesting group of media organizations are helping to build an open source CMS that they hope could change the dominance of traditional, government-approved media and shift power to more agile, innovative news start-ups.

    The Content Strategies Summit Coming to Miami in March

    One of the first conferences CMS Report will be sponsoring this year is the Content Strategies Summit being held in Miami Beach, March 20 - 22, 2013.
