Some great news on the social media front. 

I have said it a lot: We are entering an era of context rather than simple search. With the implementation of the Knowledge Graph into Search, Google is continuing to reward quality over quantity. 

Apparently, StumbleUpon is also making a comeback (see the results of the first study). 

What is your favorite piece of news this week?
