O Google já tem substituto: Blekko.

Os media sociais e a curadoria ao serviço da pesquisa (e vice-versa).

Resultados de pesquisas adaptados ao tamanho do monitor que estamos a usar e organizados por categorias de diferentes cores.

Muitos anos e muitos milhões de dólares depois, o Blekko está pronto para ser o motor de busca de referência.

Experimentem! Vale a pena!

Alejandro Tortolini's curator insight, June 3, 2013 5:11 PM

Blekko agrupa visualmente las búsquedas de contenido.

Therese Torris's curator insight, June 4, 2013 5:46 AM

Don't know how powerful it is as a search engine but Blekko certainly has a very attractive visual display and offers much needed options to filter search by topic or category (used to be called "parametric search"). Curious to see how it catches on but will definitely give it a try myself.

Twitter's identity crisis
CNN
But over the past five years, Twitter has failed to fully conceive what it wants its core experience -- the broadcasting of short messages from a user to his or her followers -- to be used for.
Andy Bull's insight:

Crisis? What identity crisis? Can't see the problem here - Twitter is a breaking news service. Every journalist realised that when they first stumbled across it. That's why it's successful. Monetising this clear function is another matter.

As TV Falls Apart, Tumblr And Twitter Aim To Pick Up The Pieces | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it
For years, it’s been said that Internet use would cut into the time U.S. consumers spend watching television. Today, those premonitions are beginning to reach the tipping point. TV ratings have dropped by 50 percent over the last decade.
Andy Bull's insight:

TV RIP?

This from the post: "Television – the concept, if not the medium and business model – will probably never go away entirely. But like books, or movies, or music, or games or any other entertainment medium, it’s going to change, and that’s happening right now.

 

"It may not be as important going forward."
