Thanks to the internet, everything's going on my permanent record. — Brent Logan (@blogan) October 10, 2018 Update. I added the following as a comment, but am pulling it up for those that might not see it otherwise: Want to freak yourself out? I'm gonna show just how much of your information the likes of… Continue reading Permanent Record
I’m feeling a little stupid right now. Maybe a little history is in order. We’ve known since 2014, back when Five Labs used our Facebook posts to analyze personality, that when we shared our data with an app on Facebook, the app’s publisher gets our friends’ data, too. It should have been obvious more than… Continue reading What did we learn new about Facebook?
I have no word for 2014, no big goals, no 365-day projects, not even a one-month theme. Still, this list of social media resolutions from the end of 2009 seems appropriate to review and renew.

Use whatever social media you want. Feel free to use it on company time. Just use common sense and remember that if you publicly identify yourself with the company’s brand then act in a manner consistent with that brand. It’s in all of our best interests to do so.
With a new year nearly here, it’s time to resolve to behave better on Twitter, Facebook, my blog, and whatever other social media gets invented this coming year. Ask, don’t tell. I’ll try to remember that I don’t know everything and act accordingly. I might even learn something. Leave more comments. Bloggers put a lot… Continue reading My Social Media New Year’s Resolutions
Facebook will soon have targeted ads in your news stream. Why do I make this baseless claim? Allow me to direct your attention: Facebook has proposed an updated Statement of Rights and Responsibilities that bans sponsored status updates. That indicates two things: Facebook is contemplating commercial messages in the news stream. Facebook doesn’t want the… Continue reading Facebook to Sell Targeted Ads in Your News Stream
