Apple blesses Twitter as the social network of Mountain Lion, shuns Facebook -

The apple of Apple’s eye, Twitter, will soon be the default social graph and social network for all iOS and Mac devices, as Facebook once again gets the shaft.

Apple has integrated Twitter into OS X Mountain Lion, the next-generation operating system for Macs announced Thursday and slated for summer release.

I’m newly addicted to Pinterest! I love it in my personal life, but I’m thinking it could also be very valuable for helping my nonprofit tell its story. Here’s a page with marketing ideas for Pinterest.

Twitter, Democracy, and Internet Freedom

Twitter has taken fire in recent days from activists and bloggers who fear that the company’s new censorship policies will muffle online freedom. The company has introduced technology allowing them to censore tweets on a country by country basis.

News reports recall the ways in which protestors have had made use of Twitter to oppose dictatorships, and dissidents express concern that their ability to communicate will be harmed.

The more immediate issue, however, may lie elsewhere. Twitter’s new policies demonstrate vividly the complicated relationship between Internet freedom and democratic government.

Facebook, Twitter, MySpace create social search tool

Following complaints that Google’s new social search tool gives skewed results instead of the most relevant ones, a group of social networks have banded together to offer an alternative.

Engineers at Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace created a proof of concept that lets people use Google to get search results from those sites as well as LinkedIn, Flickr, Quora, Tumblr, Foursquare, Crunchbase, FriendFeed, Stack Overflow, Github, and Google+. The results show the highest social media results for a given search and not just the Google+ results that Google’s new Search Plus Your World does.

http://news.cnet.com/8301-1023_3-57364111-93/facebook-twitter-myspace-create-social-search-tool/

Dubbed “don’t be evil” in reference to Google’s much-maligned motto, the tool is a browser bookmarklet, or small piece of code, that runs in Chrome, FireFox, or Safari, but not Internet Explorer. When you do a search, the software automatically checks Google for the social profiles associated with a search query typed into the search engine and replaces the Google+ profiles that Google now features with the ones ranked highest in its own search results.

A battle is brewing.

Twitter helped shape riot before YouTube showed the world

Social media has shaped and fuelled the course of events for the Stanley Cup riot and Occupy Vancouver. The real story behind the Stanley Cup riot is not the violent destruction and looting of property, but the use of social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Tumblr and so forth, to observe, document, and react to vandalism and theft.

http://www.vancourier.com/technology/Twitter+helped+shape+riot+before+YouTube+showed+world/5869677/story.html

Some form of hooliganism was to an extent expected, but the surprise was how citizens used social media to hunt down offenders and organize clean up crews. Social media clearly facilitated the start of the Occupy Wall Street movement and in turn, Occupy Vancouver, but more important is how it is being used for social change as a real-time medium to observe, document, organize and negotiate.

    Indeed the potential of social media to serve as a vehicle for positive change is immense. We have to harness it properly. More awareness on its potential is a first step.

Freedom: who could object? Yet this word is now used to justify a thousand forms of exploitation. Throughout the rightwing press and blogosphere, among thinktanks and governments, the word excuses every assault on the lives of the poor, every form of inequality and intrusion to which the 1% subject us. How did libertarianism, once a noble impulse, become synonymous with injustice?

In the name of freedom – freedom from regulation – the banks were permitted to wreck the economy. In the name of freedom, taxes for the super-rich are cut. In the name of freedom, companies lobby to drop the minimum wage and raise working hours. In the same cause, US insurers lobby Congress to thwart effective public healthcare; the government rips up our planning laws; big business trashes the biosphere. This is the freedom of the powerful to exploit the weak, the rich to exploit the poor.”

    Thanks for sharing this… A very astutely argued essay, which leads to a poignant conclusion…

    “Modern libertarianism is the disguise adopted by those who wish to exploit without restraint. It pretends that only the state intrudes on our liberties. It ignores the role of banks, corporations and the rich in making us less free. It denies the need for the state to curb them in order to protect the freedoms of weaker people…”

    The author, George Monbiot, whom I had never heard of before, is one of today's finest activist philosophers. I'll be reading more of his work!

An Activist Stands Her Ground in Bahrain:

During a protest in Bahrain on Saturday, an American journalist named Matthew Cassel reported on Twitter that he had just witnessed something remarkable: a lone female protester who refused to move as police officers in riot gear charged past her, firing tear gas shells just a few feet from her head.

The woman standing her ground in front of a line of police vehicles was uploaded to Twitter, readers of Mr. Cassel’s feed identified her as Zainab Alkhawaja, an activist whose own Angry Arabiya Twitter feed is devoted to documenting the protest movement in Bahrain.

Here’s an interview with Ms. Zainab Alkhawaja:
