Today at the Strata Summit on Big Data, Google's Bradley Horowitz noted an intriguing statistic about Google Plus usage: users of Google Plus are two to three times as likely to post content to private circles than they are to post it publicly.
his has been a busy week for the social networks. Google+ opened to the public on Tuesday, as well as announced a boatload of new features for the web and mobile, while Facebook, right now as we type this article, is in the process of revealing Facebook Timeline, and additions to their Open Graph.

For those who focus on the debate between Facebook, Google Plus and Twitter are missing the true story. Today at Facebook’s f8 developer conference we were reminded about what the story really is…you and me. No, it’s not about features, capabilities, or the number of users. We were reminded about the power of something much more important, our experiences, relationships, the content we create and share and how each paint a picture of who we are as individuals.
Today Facebook introduced features for its users and developers alike that position Facebook not as a social network, but instead as a platform for storytelling and meaningful engagement.
Timeline is a new kind of profile, one that lets people tell their story in a visually-rich and artistic fashion. In addition to aesthetics, Timeline is essentially a social home page for all that moves you, from media to experiences to people. The biggest difference you’ll notice is presentation. Starting with the substantial image that you choose to depict your persona, the new format essentially turns your profile into a Flipboard-esque (magazine) pictorial rich with updates, content, and connections…all designed to tell your story, your way. Don’t be confused by the name however, Timeline is much more than that, it’s essentially a storyboard for your digital and real life as told by what you share and what others share with you....
I sat back in awe watching Zuckerberg at F8 today. Facebook has done it again -- they are always reinventing themselves, always pushing toward the future. They're so good at incorporating other ideas at the right time (http://on.mash.to/rkpYna) and leaving out ideas, when the're too early.
Facebook has just used their keynote at f8 to unveil a major new feature: Timeline. It's your Profile re-imagined in a more visual way. "It's the heart of your Facebook experience, completely re-thought from the ground up," CEO Mark Zuckerberg noted.
Woke up to a scary and confusing new Facebook? Us too! We'll have more to say about it shortly, but in the meantime, here's a nice little shorthand chart to guide you through Facebook's latest facelift.
