Facebook? I Don’t Care! – via @NoupeMag / noupe.com

The Maple Kind is a website with a distinct claim that reads “Where infographics meet comics and bullshit!” What urges its creators is to make you chuckle. This sure does sound much simpler than it is, but it definitely implies, how the following infoographic shall be read. Therein, the Maple Kind argues, why we need a new button on Facebook (a few more than one more, in fact). This new button shall be named ” I Don’t Care” and is bound to be the most widely used expression on Facebook, once it has been instated. Though the infographic in fact made me chuckle, The Maple Kind does not follow a far-fetched approach. Take a look at your own use of Facebook. What would you use more often? Like or I Don’t Care? I know what I would do, but I don’t see Facebook as anything of value for modern society anyway…

Amazon & Kiva Systems

Date of acquisition: 19-Mar-2012

Cost: $775 million (USD)Amazon Pac-Man Acquires Kiva Ghost

Amazon: The world’s largest online retailer started as a web based book store, but soon ballooned out into music, retail goods, apparel and a wealth of other products. It was founded in Seattle, Washington in 1994 and now delivers around the world.

Kiva Systems: A warehouse robotics company, Kiva Systems produces robots that take the legwork out of managing stock.

These orange androids self-navigate warehouses using sensors, providing instant access to goods.

Why the merger will work: Amazon are hoping to improve their margins by reducing spending on warehouse processing. Having an automated warehouse system will hopefully make the business more efficient. And those orange robots are pretty nifty. Apart from a Terminator-esque Rise of the Machines, what could go wrong?

Google+ vs. Facebook – Infographic | Written by Jeff Bullas

I am starting to wonder if Google+ is a waste of time as a marketing platform for bloggers and brands.

Google+ vs Facebook Infographic

Google+ launched with a bang last year and has now reached over 170 million registered users and 100 million active users.

The demographic is mainly male at 67%, the average age is 28 years old with a technical bent.

I do like the Google+ interface and I am sure it had a significant impact on maintaining competitive  pressure on Facebook to keep its user interface fresh with its new “Timeline” design rollout and evolution.

But there is a problem.

Google+’s engagement levels are so low that actually rank behind MySpace and almost any other significant social network you want to mention.

Google+ Engagement is Poor

Research from RJ Metrics shows that that despite the large user base they are hardly spending any time on the site whether vthat is publishing, reading or engaging.

Here are some of the findings:

  •  The average post has less than one +1, less than one reply, and less than one re-share.
  • 30% of users who make a public post never make a second one.
  • After making five public posts, there is a 15% chance that a user will not post publicly again.
  • Among users who make publicly-viewable posts, there is an average of 12 days between each post

Other research reveals that Google+ users spend on average only 3 minutes per month versus Facebook at over 400 minutes.
