Twitter Business Model Found

Twitter Business Model Found

Jason Calacanis just put Twitter in business. How? He offered $250,000 to be one of 20 users in Twitter's "Suggested Follows" for two years.

You Probably Have About 150 Real Friends

That's according to anthropologist Robin Dunbar, who found that the average person has five "core" friends, 10 more in immediate circles, and two more acquaintance rings.

Charles Darwin Tagged You in a Note on Facebook

Charles Darwin Tagged You in a Note on Facebook

Last week, I enlisted Slate readers to help divine how Facebook's "25 Random Things About Me" trend got started. More than 3,000 of you responded, answering queries on when you first saw a "25 Things" note, when you were first tagged, and when (if ever) you wrote your own note. On one level, the survey was a failure: I had hoped to find the [...]

Australian court rules that Facebook “Wall” posts are “legal notice”

An Australian court has ruled that a posting on someone's Facebook page can serve as legal notice. I think that this is a bad idea -- I've got a lot of accounts hanging around on various social sites that I never check into (Facebook falls into this category). Lots of us do. Some of them don't even let you resign your account automatically, [...]
