New Twitter Design Change

I’ve been talking with some of my Twitter friends about the new design change and what they think about it.  You will always have the hard core people that don’t like change but for the most part, people that I know really seem to like it.

Most people like Facebook more than Twitter and that is pretty obvious by the amount of users that Facebook has.  I really like Twitter, not because I have made over 103,000 connections there but because it is a more casual experience.  If you are wondering why I call my Twitter followers “connections” it is because I don’t like calling people followers (I follow everyone back that follows me, i.e. “connections”).  Don’t get me wrong, there are people that are followers and people who are leaders.  I just don’t want to be the person that is the judge.  Each individual needs to make that determination for themselves.

Liking Twitter better than Facebook is not very popular with Internet Marketers because I have friends that make over six figures a month using Facebook marketing.  But I don’t care because I am not a Social Media Marketer, LOL!

I really like the new Twitter design change because it is now more like a social media site instead of just a tool that you use for mass texting.  They’ve just added a new look and they now allow you to see each full conversation via a new direct message (DM) window.  This really helps me because I used to track all of my DM’s and put them in a folder in case I needed to remember what someone said to me at a later time.  The new DM feature helps me out a lot and it is good thinking on Twitter’s part.  It really makes it feel like a more complete social media site.

What do you think about the new Twitter design change?  Leave me a comment and let me know.

The Death of Google Buzz?

That’s right, Google Buzz is dead or retiring as Google likes to call it.  This is something that I knew would happen when I wrote about it in a previous post.

Google says that in a few weeks you will no longer be able to create any new posts.  You will be able to access posts you’ve made in the past by either viewing it on your Google profile or by downloading using Google Takeout.

You see, even the biggest search engine in the world isn’t perfect when it comes to the brave new world of Social Media.  But I called it a little bit ago because Google hasn’t faired so well in the Social Media space.  Just look at what happened after they acquired MySpace, need I say more…

I guess we will have to see how well they do with the new Google Plus.  They know that Facebook continues to grow at an astounding rate, now over 800 million users at this point in time, and they have stated publicly that they are their biggest competition.

There was another post that I wrote where I talked about how Facebook wants to make it to where people kids that are growing up today won’t even know the difference between Facebook and the Internet.  That is probably why Google is trying so hard to create a Social Media rival because if that happens, they will lose their stranglehold on Internet search traffic.
