One Big Social Network

The Internet is rather popular. Well duh…

What is interesting about the Internet being so popular is how people interact while on the Internet. There is this huge concept of social networks on the Internet. Facebook, Linkedin, Myspace …

Today I came across a tweet from Google introducing their new +1 button. It basically sounds a lot like the Facebook “Like” button. You click +1 on webpages and when your connected friends search for similar topics, they can see that you recommended a specific page.

It is interesting that social networking on the Internet is attempting to turn all of the Internet into one big social network. And I really like the way it is becoming more passive. Sure I like scrolling through my Facebook mini-feed and seeing pictures from friend’s vacations and status message updates, but a lot of the time I really don’t care to see every single webpage that someone feels the need to share.

If a friend of mine finds a website for all things bread machine related, it doesn’t do me much good when I’m not looking for a bread machine. But four months down the road when I’m looking to buy my wife a bread machine I would love to see that website that is most likely long forgotten. Instead of the Internet always telling me what pages it thinks I should go to, it should enhance my “surfing” experience.

People want the Internet to be a good resource for others. People like that social factor. Check out sites like Wikipedia, Trip Advisor, or even Bed Bath and Beyond. People enjoy keeping articles current or writing reviews for others to view.

Let’s just hope Google +1 button gets off the ground better than Google’s old promote button.

Thanks for posting pictures of the beautiful quilts, especially the closeups. I so envious that you were able to go to a quilt show. In Maryland, we got so much snow lately that it feels like we have been house bound forever. Things are starting to get back to normal and in some areas, I can see green life reaching for the sun. Keep up the great work on your podcasts, website and blogs!Michelle

I don’t think you’re alone. I’ve got 1 bi 1st cousin, another gay 2nd cousin and who knows who else is out there. I think people tend to conceal things more within a family than they would to the general public. Speaking for myself, I could care less about being rejected by a stranger, but by my uncle…OUCH! That would hurt.
