Apps Using FB Newsfeed as Promo Space
You know what I’ve found annoying with all these apps on facebook now?
An app tells you when people did something, but not when they’re recommending it.
I just watched a video on SocialCam, that I wouldn’t recommend to anyone, only to realize that my friends on Facebook didn’t actually want to share it. They just watched it. Well that’s no endorsement these days. I’m ticked I can’t get my five minutes back.
That said, sneaky, Facebook and SocialCam, very sneaky. You got me this time.
"Other people watched this, but didn’t feel it was good enough to be recommended, but you still might want to watch it".

Incredbile opinion piece. Can’t believe the GT got this to run past the censors.
Thomas A. Edison was interviewed by a newspaper after 800 unsuccessful tries to make a working light bulb. “How does it feel to have failed 800 times?” the reporter asked. And Edison’s answer? “I haven’t failed 800 times. I haven’t failed once. What I have done, is I have succeeded in proving that those 800 ways won’t work. Once I eliminate all the ways that won’t work, I will find the one way that will.” Several years later, after thousands more “successful proofs” he managed to find a way that works, and thus illuminated the world.
Great article from the Atlantic about a participant in the competition the Turing Test, which tests computers’ abilities to resemble humans in a chat box.
