  • The How Many Active Users on Social Networks Infographic

    Earlier this week, I questioned whether social media could replace my need to blog. In my article, I mentioned that Google+ and LinkedIn as social network platforms are able to provide near blog-like functions. Since that article posted, I've already heard comments from my Facebook and Twitter friends that no one uses Google+. I respectfully disagree with my friends. While people like to call Google+ a ghost town the numbers would indicate otherwise.

    Worldwide, Google+ has the third most active social media users with Facebook in first followed by YouTube. Surprising to Twitter fans (I'm one of them), Twitter has only half the active users (271 Million) as Google+ (540 Million). Where did I get these numbers? Over the past couple years I've googled them, but recently I came across Mike Allton's article, Social Media Active Users by Network, via The Social Media Hat.

  • How YouTube and the Social Web Saved Winter

    My back hurts. As with the rest of the United States, my neck of the woods has received more snow and cold weather than one could possibly want for the winter season. Due to the constant snowfall, I have spent a number of my days clearing my driveway from snow with the help of my 15 year old snow blower. Several days ago, the snow blower's auger died on me leaving me with a useless rusting piece of machinery. Auger Belts 1. Remove the plastic belt cover on the front of the engine by removing…

  • How free is free?

    It looks as if Laura Scott, pingVision, had some free time on her hands. There are reasons free servcies on the Internet are free. Laura wants you to start asking yourself, "why?". Is the future really free? It seems we've entered an age where there's a land-grab happening for personal data and attention time. Look at all the web start-ups backed by venture capital. They aren't investing out of philanthropy. There's value there. YouTube is "free" but Google paid over a billion dollars for it.…

  • Ruby on Rails on YouTube

    If you like the Mac/Windows commercials we have seen over the past year then you are going to like the Hi, I'm Ruby on Rails videos making their way on YouTube.  The parodies are great for late night video watching and lets hope the PHP and Java folks have a sense of humor. Check out Rails Envy for the complete details on the video.

  • The Drupal Boys - A Drupal Song video

    The Drupal Boys - A Drupal Song video

    Dries Buytaert had mentioned that when the Drupal developers came together at the Open Source CMS Summit he hoped they could make a video using Jeff Robbin's catchy Drupal Song.  I'm not sure the status of that video by the developers, but as a fan of Drupal I decided to beat them to the punch.

    My son and I have become addicted to The Drupal Song.  In fact, when the song is playing in my house we quickly become The Drupal Boys.

  • So Is It a Smart Move or Silly Money 2.0?

    So was Google's buy of YouTube smart or silly? Just as the BusinessWeek article discusses in their own article, the answer to that question is anybody's guess. I think if Google bought YouTube only for its young fickle audience and the level of synergy currently present at the was a silly move. However, Google may have also bought YouTube before anybody else could which is likely a very smart move.

    If Google fails to see YouTube turn a profit they're out only out 1.5 billion dollars. However, how much loss would Google see in the long run if YouTube had been bought by one of Google's competitor and the competitor succeeded in capturing the online video market? Evidently Google felt the risk was too high if YouTube worked for somebody else but Google.
