Facebook's social search is coming

Facebook's social search is coming | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Takeaway:

This is an interesting article about why a Facebook search would be a significant threat to Google. I'm not expecting a major upheaval, but I do think this will force Google to adapt.  It should be interesting.  

Ken

 

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says the social network is already handling a billion search queries per day, and that it is interested in launching a social search engine powered by the activity of its users — something that could turn out to be Google’s worst nightmare.

 

 

“Search engines are really evolving towards giving you a set of answers… like, I have a specific question, answer this question for me. And when you think about it from that perspective, Facebook is pretty uniquely positioned to answer a lot of the questions that people have. That’s one obvious thing that would be interesting for us to do in the future.”

Google Ngram Viewer

Google Ngram Viewer | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Today I learned about Ngram Viewer by Google.  Google has been rapidly digitizing books.  They want to organize all of the worlds information.  By doing this, they are able to chart word usage through the history of the printed word.  Ngram allows you plot a graph with the history of words.   In this simple example, I chose the compare the  words curation (blue) vs curate (red)

 

After looking at the chart, you may be  trying to recall what happenened in the second century of the 1800s?  Here's some non-academic help: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090211144907AATu5Ux

Top Tech Trends & People of 2012 (Focus on New Media Communications)

Here is the textbook that I created/curated for teaching my New Media Technology class during the Spring semester of 2012 at Hannam University's Linton Global College. I took great effort to give credit where it is due. I aimed to show my students how they could access enough free info on the web that was of equal or greater value than the wonderful information found in expensive textbooks. Feel free to share and please support the true authors of this book in any way you can (money, likes, blog comments, links, etc.) I am simply the currator of this content.

If you would like a free tablet-friendly PDF file, just email me at kenmorrison30 @ yahoo.com (no spaces)

 

P.S. There are some typos and honest mistakes in this textbook, but I am comfortable sharing it as is. I am excited to redesign it for next semester.

I have been saying this for a while - Google is forgetting its core DNA and instead chasing competition. It isn't going to end well. Others such as influential publisher & technology observer Tim O'Reilly are starting to wave the red flag as well.

The Collage Tells The Story and The Curator Skillset That's Yet To Come

The Collage Tells The Story and The Curator Skillset That's Yet To Come | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Krishna Bharat, creator of Google News and now Principle Scientist at Google, spoke at the News World Summit in Bangalore, India.

 

His focus was on the future of news and on the impotance of curation as well as on what the news will look and "feel" like.

 

He rightly suggests to news teams to "provide guides to content", not just new content and to deliver information in ways that entice the reader in multiple ways, while providing lots of good and well referenced information. 

 

Excerpted from the original Poynter.org article: "As consumers have access to vast troves of news information from all over the world, Bharat urged news editorial teams to provide a guide to content, not just produce content.

 

“Creation and curation should be the fundamental activities for your editorial team,” he said.


Bharat said news in the future will become more of an app-like experience, as users adapt the experience to themselves, and as newsrooms provide a more multi-dimensional experience that includes more images and maps.

 

“The collage tells the story.

 

This will create a skill set that doesn’t exist yet.”

 

And also:

 

"The winning experience of the future is fast, tactile, original content, with access to many reputable sources in an appealing narrative form,” Bharat said.

 

“It is delivered in an appealing, narrative form, encompasses a broader definition of news, and involves audiences with a stake in the story or with expertise."

 

Must-read. 9/10

Thanks for curating this article. I'm also noticing the rise of data visualization as a skill for journalists (and others) - might add that creation, curation, AND visualization should be the fundamental activities .... and when I say visualization - not just pretty pictures, but insights. http://www.guardian.co.uk/news/datablog/2012/may/31/data-journalism-awards-winners
