Meaningful stuff always remains such - a classic.

you may give longaccess.com a try for such usage

Great read, I've put some similar thoughts of mine here - http://gtziralis.com/from-doer-to-leader/

Question is, how many out of them actually use it.

-----


RTFA: "Google’s Larry Page has announced that Google+ now has 90 million users globally, doubling the number from three months ago. Page also said that G+ has a 60% ‘daily engagement’ rate. This came as a part of Google’s Q4 and fiscal year 2011 financial reports."

60% daily engagement rate including Google personalized search? ;)

-----


I think this is a completely legitimate question.

The fact that they're starting to throw up weasel words tells me that the "60% daily engagement rate" figure might not be exactly what you think it means. I'd be much more interested if they'd tell us exactly how many people log in and at least view their timeline every day. I'm not interested in how many people hit personalized search every time they do a search because they happen to be logged in.

-----


Exactly. Without a definition of "daily activity" it's a meaningless stat.

-----


No, Twitter has over time replaced Google Reader for me. I don't know how to feel about it.

-----


disagree - awareness may have different metrics but definitely is valuable

-----


fixed that, thnx

To me, it's just being so much tired when I go to sleep that I simply cannot afford insomnia and I instantly sleep :-)

-----


Lucky! This is the worst kind of insomnia for me: so tired but can't sleep. Perhaps this is why the cold-shower trick has worked so well for me: huge negative first derivative of awakeness.

-----


Agree. But aren't trending topics updated automatically? Is there reviewing taking place, for adult content etc?

-----


I'm sure they are. what I meant was that '#flotilla' may not be trending as hard as one would normally expect because the majority of twitter's english-speaking users are asleep or just starting work around now. 6-8 hours from now, when most of the US is awake, I imagine it will be far ahead of all other stories.
