Gideon Rosenblatt: Excerpt from a few highlights below:
Writers and information curators strongly influence readers
**and that led to people using social networks to connect information networks - We became "information networkers"
Here are some highlights that caught my attention:
**The web is an information network connected by web links
**A community is a social network connected by relationships
**Google+ used our web links to make it easier to use our information networks
**Google+ made it easier for us to use social networks to find people we never would have known though interest graphs
**Our social networks subtly changed - they were no longer just connections with friends - they now included other people with interesting information to share
**Writers and information curators strongly influence readers
**and that led to people using social networks to connectinformation networks - We became "information networkers"
**To fulfill its mission, Google needed a social network to help organize informtion networks - Google+ was born
**Google+ isn't competing with Facebook to build the world's best "social graph" - It's using the social graph to build the world's best interest graph
**The "Influence Graph" Map the flow of content through our social connections and you find the interest graph
