It’s an important day here at Code School. If you’ve been following along with the Google I/O conference in San Francisco, you may have heard we’re teaming up with Google and its Women Techmakers Program to support women and minorities in tech.
We’re thrilled to announce an effort to support a community of creative, inspiring and hard-working people who make a difference to millions of kids everyday—teachers! We’ve teamed up with some brilliant elementary school teachers to launch Teachers on Pinterest, a hub where you’ll find…
Back to Facebook comments, first change you’ll notice is that the empty comment box with your own avatar has been moved from the bottom of the comment section to the top, trying to incite you to join the conversation without scrolling to the end of the comments. The default view is a collapsed comment view with main comments and the number of replies for each.
On to right top you also see a link giving you a choice to see “Recent activities” or “Top comments”, the Facebook way to gauge automatically relevance of posted content. Be aware that you might not see the last posted comments but those that have a higher relevance, judged by Facebook’s robots. If you are late to a conversation, this certainly might help you to get through the comment threads faster. If you are an active participant on a Post’s comment section, it might get confusing, as you need to make sure you read the “recent activities” stream instead of the top comments. It remains to be seen if the relevance algorithm is actually helpful or just another way to confuse users by making something more complex as it might need to be.
It’s remains to be seen if there are any changes made to the insights for Facebook pages regarding measuring engagement levels and posting stats. How do you feel about Facebook threaded comments?

“Content creators should take note – but certainly not forget about organic search all together. ‘Image optimization,’ if there is such a phrase, may be an additional form of SEO, but definitely not a replacement for keyword building as Google organic traffic still sends almost half of the traffic to the websites in our data set,” explained Shareaholic. “Pinterest also beat out StumbleUpon, which has long been a significant source for content discovery and driver of traffic. But if image surfing is the preferred form of content discovery, it may be something content creators want to think about.”—Relevanza: Pinterest referrals continue to eclipse other platforms (via eatdrinkmedia)
Okay, so you have a collection of photos, various kinds of photos published on your website.
Preferably, you have a page of your site devoted to a single photo. Or, at least, you have one major photo per page.
With the arrival and fantastic growth of social platforms like Pinterest(especially),Instagram and, even, GooglePlus, photos have become a very valuable currency on the social spaces. The tension between words and pictures as always been great, regardless of medium, but in the social media, photos become not only intriguing and pleasing for the eyes but they can also be the pathway back to your website.
Over last few days, Google has invited early Google Profile users to claim a vanity URL, and left those not invited wondering how this all might work.
We have received questions from “Do you know the link where one can claim a vanity URL?”; to, “can we call someone?”. This evening, I received my notification to claim my Google+ URL: "www.google.com/+BirgitPauli-Haack".
