- Is G+ Putting Facebook On The Defensive? | TechCrunch – If it’s not obvious yet, Google+ is going to be able to “undercut” Facebook when it comes to game developers and platform transactions. Instead of taking a 30% cut of all Farmville seeds (or whatever people are buying), Google will be able to take a smaller percentage for themselves. They may even take nothing. And when it comes to “monetization” on the G+ “website,” Google’s trump card against Facebook is that we may never even see an ad on G+. Google has plenty to gain without ever showing an ad and, put simply, Google doesn’t need the money. Facebook’s got to know this, and it’s got to have them just a little bit concerned.

Community management is the art and science of engaging these communities, and the best way to see what’s working and what isn’t is to engage, moderate, and analyze all interactions. There are some brands that get it. And there are some brands that don’t.

- Facebook’s Mysterious Hire: The Guy Who Designed Much of the iPhone – Facebook announced today that it has acquired a startup called Push Pop Press and most of the media coverage of the news has focused on Push Pop’s dazzling eBook technology for clients including Al Gore. There’s been some mention that one of Push Pop’s co-founders, Mike Matas, was a former Apple designer.
There’s a whole lot more to the story than that, though. Matas wasn’t just one of many Apple designers; he designed many of the key interfaces you probably interact with every day if you own an iPhone, an iPad or a Mac. Now he’s at Facebook. It’s a big deal.
