Disagree w/ @hugoamsellem. I share differently with different groups. My solution isn’t Path, rather FB groups medium.com/adventures-in-…
I read this article about replacing Facebook with Path, talking about how Facebook is for showing while Path is about sharing. I disagree, which I first expressed on Twitter (above).
The trend among my closest friends is different. I checked 10 of my closest friends’ timeline, and the last public post from any of us was the 27th of April (9 days ago). We neither show nor share on Facebook, and this unwillingness to share has steadily grown since the hype around Facebook calmed down (like 2009 in Norway). However, there is more activity than ever before on our private groups. I have separate private groups for college classmate, childhood friends, work (and e-mail).
When we’re away from the computer, we say and act differently in different arenas - depending on whether you’re talking with your boss, parents, girlfriend or an old acquaintance Facebook allows me to have all these different conversations at the same place, and at the same time have the possibility to stay updated on/keep in touch with (old) friends.
Therefore, you don’t see me switching to Path anytime soon….
Earlier I tweeted about how the ‘Snapchat social graph’ could be what Path really wants/needs. I see Path as a social network for techies, and I believe they (will) have the same growth issues as Foursquare. Still, I believe the demand for a new and more intimate/personal social graph (like the one Path is trying to build) is growing rapidly.
This got me thinking:
Snapchat, unlike Path, is being rapidly adopted by ‘normal people’. And users are not ‘importing Facebook friends’, they’re slowly building a new (more intimate) social graph. I know Snapchat has stated that they’re planning to monetize through ads, but couldn’t this also be a really really really good opportunity to expand/pivot into a (more intimate) social network?

What I believe is that all clear-minded people should remain two things throughout their lifetimes: curious and teachable. — http://www.buzzfeed.com/ryanhatesthis/13-things-roger-ebert-said-better-than-anybody-else
Management/Success/Leadership: Mostly Bullshit -
…success happens when you have a coincidence of talent, resources, and timing.
Great viewpoints about causality from mr Dilbert, Scott Adams
The fields of management/success/leadership are a lot like the finance industry in the sense that much of it is based on confusing correlation and chance with causation. We humans like to feel as if we understand and control our environments. We don’t like to think of ourselves as helpless leaves blowing in the wind of chance. So we clutch at any ridiculous explanation of how things work. — Scott Adams… taken from the always interesting Monday Note
