The Business of Facebook – Infographic | Affiliate Marketing Tips from Super Affiliate Zac Johnson | Internet Consumer behaviors | Scoop.it
When it comes to the users of Facebook, average users and internet marketers both see the social network in two completely different lights. The average user can’t wait to see the latest status updates and photos from their “friends”. While the internet marketer can’t wait to tap into the latest set of demographics and targets for new users and to create a new stream of ad campaigns to flow through the hundreds of millions of users currently on Facebook.
No matter if you are just an addicted user of Facebook, or currently mastering their Facebook Ads platform as a revenue source, you should find the following stats and information quite amazing.
With Facebook planning to launch their IPO stock later in the year, will the growth and success of Facebook keep jumping higher and higher. Does Facebook deserve a $50 BILLION evaluation? Only time will tell, but I’d like to think so… and these astounding numbers don’t lie.

Keen On… Yes, Google Is a Monopolist (And Why We Should Worry) [TCTV]

Keen On… Yes, Google Is a Monopolist (And Why We Should Worry) [TCTV] | Internet Consumer behaviors | Scoop.it
Once the darling of the left, Google is rapidly losing the affection of American progressives. Rather than a force for the good, Google’s enormous power and influence, particularly over search, is making more and more people nervous about its real intent. Most of all, it is Google’s lack of transparency – its self-evident secrecy rather than its openness - that is creeping many people (including myself) out.

Siva Vaidhyanathan is one of America’s most influential new media scholars and the author of Copyrights and Copywrongs and The Anarchist in the Library. In his important new book, The Googlization of Everything (And Why We Should Worry), Vaidhyanathan takes on the power of Google and reveals why we should be worried about the company’s monopolization of search and its imperial control of the web.

Social relationships get more important to Google search

Social relationships get more important to Google search | Internet Consumer behaviors | Scoop.it
Because relationships are relevant. Online social networks have changed our behavior over the past few years. We’ve gotten to used to searching, consuming and sharing information fed to us through social networks, like Facebook and Twitter and blogs. (ie: for those of us who actually use the Facebook platform for searching/ sharing/consuming info vs. stalking)…Google knows that; so they’ve integrated our opinions into your search to be more PERSONALLY relevant for you.
It’s pretty cool if you trust opinions and news shared by your friends. If you don’t, you might want to rethink who you interact with on a regular basis within your social networks so they wont show up in your Google search results!

The Pros And Cons Of Facebook Comments

The Pros And Cons Of Facebook Comments | Internet Consumer behaviors | Scoop.it


Today, Facebook rolled out a new commenting system for blogs and third-party sites. We've implemented it here on TechCrunch, and after a few hours of the system being live it is obvious that it has its share of pros and cons. Readers have certainly noticed, and there is already a ton debate about whether this is good or bad for the Internet.

It is certainly not perfect. Facebook comments don't support Twitter or Google logins. It doesn't yet allow sites to archive their comments to make backups (although an API for that is forthcoming I am told), and switching away from Facebook comments after a few months on the system looks like it will be a hassle (data portability anyone?). Some corporations block Facebook, which kills it as a commenting system for that subset of users. In one fell swoop it could hurt Disqus, which is a great startup that's been perfecting its commenting system for years. And there are lots of little bugs we've noticed that hopefully will be fixed soon (we were manually moderating every comment on TechCrunch until a few minutes ago, and you still can't see a comment count at the top of each post like you could before). On the other hand, it also has some real advantages. Primary among these is that it requires commenters to use their real identities.

Understanding Facebook's Master Plan - Part I | Internet Consumer behaviors | Scoop.it
It is becoming crystal clear to anyone who is watching that Facebook has a goal. It sounds more ominous than it really is as the intentions are really geared around profit and power, but Facebook’s goal is to rule the online (and parts of the offline) world.

Entering Entertainment 2.0 : Cassius - I Love U So (Official Video)

Hello World 2.0,
A decade ago, the music industry has severed a major slow down in CD purchases. Internet users being more and more savvy have learned how to acquire digital content without having to spend money. With their back on the wall, the music industry have had to find other ways to cope with the ravenous illegal downloading wave and reach consumers to sell their content.
Besides, while YouTube has and still represents a fantastic opportunity for consumers to "broadcast themselves", at the same time it used to represent a challenge for music labels in terms of rights infringements. But nowadays it seems the industry has found innovative ways to use YouTube at their advantage and reach a wider consumer base directly online. No need to wait for CD buyers to go to the closest retail music outlet to be able to get their money. Instead they use YouTube to promote their content Online and on mobile devices while making the music available for download on iTunes. Apple's music platform being THE major crossroads of music lovers, I believe leveraging Social Media such as YouTube, then Twitter and Facebook (or Scoop.iT) will be key in the coming years to promote entertainment content. This great video & song "I love you so" by Cassius from Ed Bangers Records is a great example that illustrates what my words may fail to underline. That being said, Enjoy the music and I'll meet you on the dance floors.
