Is Twitter Crossing the Line Between Useful and Creepy?

Is Twitter Crossing the Line Between Useful and Creepy? | e-commerce & social media | Scoop.it

The Nearby feature from Twitter uses proactive location to increase geographic relevancy. Is this positive or a negative? Jay Baer weighs in on The Baer FactsFacts.


In this edition of The Baer Facts, I talk with Kyle Lacy of ExactTarget about Twitter’s new Nearby feature that will give users the option of seeing tweets from other users in the vicinity.


Is This a Feature or a Freak-Out?

Note that users can opt-out of this feature (which is still in the testing phase), the same way that Twitter members can choose to not pass geographic data along with their tweets. But is Nearby a plus or a minus? I see two scenarios where Twitter Nearby could be useful....

Interesting challenge for marketers and individuals. Personally I prefer a global view of search results and social media. As long as I have a choice I'm OK

Between a quarter and a third of everything on the web is copied from somewhere else

Between a quarter and a third of everything on the web is copied from somewhere else | e-commerce & social media | Scoop.it

There’s a lot of junk on the web. There is also a lot of good stuff on the web. And then there is the stuff that’s been lifted from the good and dropped amid the dross—the aggregation, the block-quotes, the straight-off copy-paste jobs.


The extent of that duplication now has a number: according to Matt Cutts, a long time Google search engineer who developed Google’s family-friendly “SafeSearch” filter and who now leads Google’s web spam team, “something like 25% or 30% of the web’s content is duplicate content.”


That’s not necessarily a bad thing. Not all of the duplication is plagiarized or hastily created traffic-seeking junk. Examples of inoffensive duplication include quotes from blogs that link back to the original blog, or the thousands of pages of technical manuals scattered across the web that are updated with small changes but remain largely the same..

Fascinating research and interesting reading for all content producers.

Yes, we have become the copy-paste generation because of the Internet! This, in itself makes it necessary to avoid plagiarism! A number of Universities in the US have disqualified researches that have had plagiarism issues.

25%-30% sometimes seems low; but then again, I do hate to find some splogger with my stuff so my ire may seem to weight those numbers.
