Ello Is No Facebook Killer

I’m afraid to say how I feel about Ello.

I’ve been in this position before. A new social media platform arrives, everyone proclaims it the next big thing and better than all that’s come before or currently exists. I look at it and feel a profound sense of meh

It’s not really Ello’s fault. The social network that seems to encourage big images, short thoughts and unthreaded conversation launched over the summer. I don’t recall hearing about it. In fact, Ello was flying way under the radar until September

A couple of weeks ago, Facebook made headlines when it began strict enforcement of a real-names policy. Turns out there are many people for whom a taken name is more than just a nom de plume, but an identity. The LGBT community, in particular, took exception to the new rule as it forced some drag queens and even transgenders to use gender names out of alignment with their own sexual identities.

There’s a popular method of content creation, centred around making grandiose statements.

Facebook Tweaks News Feed to Surface Fresher Content

Fb

Feed-twFeed-fb

A new tweak to Facebook’s News Feed aims to address the common problem of seeing days-old posts on the platform.

In a blog post published Thursday, company software engineers Erich Owens and David Vickrey acknowledged that the News Feed often isn’t as fresh as it could be:

Our goal with News Feed is to show everyone the right content at the right time so they don’t miss the stories that are important to them. We’ve heard feedback that there are some instances where a post from a friend or a Page you are connected to is only interesting at a specific moment, for example when you are both watching the same sports game, or talking about the season premiere of a popular TV show. There are also times when a post that is a day or two old may not be relevant to you anymore. Our latest update to News Feed ranking looks at two new factors to determine if a story is more important in the moment than other types of updates. Read more…

Pretty much not a day would go by without my mother receiving some troublesome news about me. I guess, looking back, I simply had an […]The Beautiful Freedom of Not Giving a Crap originally appeared on Danny Brown – the human side of media and the social side of marketing – all rights reserved.        Related StoriesThe Future of Content Part 3: with Richard BeckerWhy We Shouldn’t Confuse Real Time Marketing with…
