Privacy - Zuckerberg no longer trackable on Google+

The Inquirer :: Mark Zuckerberg has lost his lofty position as the most popular Google+ user and appears to have dropped out of the rankings altogether. Zuckerberg was top of the Google+ ratings as late as Tuesday evening, and when we last looked had some 21,213 followers and 39 friends. Today he is nowhere to be seen and has been replaced by Robert Scoble, the man who confirmed to us all that this Zuckerberg was the real Zuckerberg.

Looks like Zuckerberg  has tightened up his privacy settings on his Google+ profile, making it harder for outsiders to track his action on the social network. 

More exciting for a follow up is, how Google+ will evolve in 2011. You remember?  - Nicholas Carlson, Business Insider, revealed Google's bonus plans for employees on Apr 7. He wrote that Larry Page "sent out a company-wide memo ..., alerting employees that 25% of their annual bonus will be tied to the success or failure of Google's social strategy in 2011." Let's see how Google+ will have performend end of the year.

Flickr, Google, a few social media seconds later - Osama bin Laden hunter ‘CIA John’ identified

Observer :: Anyone who’s ever logged in to a social network while in a jubilant, possibly intoxicated, frame of mind knows the dangers. Sometimes you share something you should maybe keep to yourself, or you forget to check your privacy settings, or you show off a little too much skin. That’s more or less what the U.S. government appears to have done in the heady moments after dumping whatever was left of Osama bin Laden into the churning waters of the North Arabian Sea.

[Aaron Gell, Observer:] Once the photo was out there, of course, it was only a matter of time. But how little time was surprising.

With the help of social media investigative journalism can be easy. Was it made easy?

What Does the LinkedIn IPO Signify?

Last week when business social networking site LinkedIn went public, the stock shot up from $45 per share to more than $90, and even today is trading at $96-plus per share. The company's valuation is more than $9 billion, even though the company had earnings of just $15.4 million last year. That kind of eye-popping debut on the public markets has business journalists wondering if a tech bubble is back. Sure, things are different now, and not every Tom, Dick and Pets.com is trying for an IPO as in the last bubble. But you can bet your bottom dollar that any company with a social media angle will be considering going public now. Already, social gaming company Zynga is considering filing to go public next month.

What do you think the LinkedIn IPO signifies in the long run? Is it a return to the dot-com craze, a social media bubble or something else? Vote in our poll or explain your position in detail in the comments.
