10.5 billion minutes spent on Facebook daily, excluding mobile

That’s 19,96 years per day. Or 7291,66 days per day. A lot. The people at Facebook nailed it.

Facebook Is Using You

Facebook makes money by selling ad space to companies that want to reach us. Advertisers choose key words or details — like relationship status, location, activities, favorite books and employment — and then Facebook runs the ads for the targeted subset of its 845 million users.

The New York Times is doing the scary thing again. Wondering Why. One thing I know it has become public discourse now. That scares me.

Google Responds: No,That’s Not How Facebook Deal Went Down (Oh, And I Say: The Search Paradigm Is Broken)

“We want to set the record straight. In 2009, we were negotiating with Facebook over access to its data, as has beenreported.  To claim that the we couldn’t reach an agreement because Google wanted to make private data publicly available is simply untrue.”

Interesting times for social and search. Very much so.

And there is nothing wrong with that.

Everything is free and nobody is happy

Interesting read on the relation between media and Facebook. However:

(…) no media outlet is so important I am willing to install an app, grant them access to my information / opt into their TOS merely to view a web page. I read a diverse amount of publications and am unwilling to solve every single media outlet, blog, or site I read at the app level. That’s annoying and intrusive.

To paraphrase Louis CK: everything is free and nobody is happy.
