“That’s not a social network, that’s a social layer.”

Google+A post at The Next Web:  For the last time, let’s all say it together: “Google+ is NOT a Social Network”. Yes, an awful lot of snarkiness in recent months, on Facebook, Twitter, blog posts, even Pinterest fer chrissakes, about how Google is supposedly failing with their social network.  Except it’s not a social network. And they’re probably not failing at all.

Expect to see more ‘lean forward’ work being done on tablets

StorifyStorify has gathered momentum as a great way to put together topical articles in aggregate from social media. And now the service takes another leap forward by bringing out an iPad app.  The mobility of the tablet, along with the fact tablets are heavily used at conferences and meetings, lends well to the type of content you might push into Storify.

Unfortunately, the walled-garden of Facebook prevents that medium from being fully explored via Storify.  Twitter, on the other hand, is a fantastic vehicle for Storify, and I’m convinced that those who underestimate Twitter might gain a better understanding if they see more well-crafted Storify embeds.
