On Facebook Is Coming to Town: Ho-Ho...No!

Thanks for the comment Betsey. My intention in writing this was mostly to make more people aware that this has happened and could happen in the future. As to the "why" ... from FB's perspective the more datapoints they have on each of us the more targeted they can be with advertising and more accurate in their predictions of likely relevance of messages and other content they serve up to us.

On The Mystery Behind 15,000 New Pinterest Followers

Thanks for pointing this out. But this may be a bit of "cause and effect." As of the time I wrote the original post last week the search "interesting graphics" didn't have me in the top page of results. I have to beieve its sudden rise has to do with the blog post and the number of people goinf to the board as a result of the post. Thoughts?

On The Mystery Behind 15,000 New Pinterest Followers

Good idea - I did look through 50 or so and there is no pattern I can discern. Some are new and some have multiple boards and have been on Pinterest for a considerable time ...

On 11 Reasons I Won’t Follow You on Twitter

Absolutely. If I were to tweet nine or 10 times an hour every hour I wouldn't blame people for not following me, but I think as you'll see if you look back over any given day I do tweet a lot in short bursts - usually because I'm actually talking to peope. :-) Thanks for the comment.
