In the beginning, there were five: (1995-2003)

Alta Vista: 1995

Inktomi: 1995

Google: 1998

All the web: 1999

Teoma: 2000

  • Search Engines: 1995-2003

  • Based on keyword search

  • Google’s algorithmic Search (based on page rank) dominates the industry

To summarize: the big 4 search engines today:

GOOGLE (#1 by a mile)

Yahoo (Which bought Inktomi, Altavista, alltheweb, and Overture in 2003)

MSN Live Search

Teoma (

Keyword search = killer application for Online advertising


(banner ads…vs….keysearch)

Facebook and Twitter

Brave New World of Digital Intimacy by Clive Thompson




Do you need to stay on Facebook just to monitor what’s being said about you?

Is participation on FB optional or not? If you don’t dive in, will people define you? Do you feel you HAVE to be on FB?

Can you imagine a Facebook for children in kindergarten, and they never lose touch with those kids for the rest of their lives? What’s that going to do to them?

With more self-disclosure via facebook, have you become more reflective?

If you grew up in a small town (in Iowa?), are there some similarities between that and Facebook?

  • Some facts about facebook

  • Mark Zuckerberg, now 24, founded Facebook 2 years agoin his dorm room at Harvard

  • site quickly amassed nine million users.

  • Early version: took a long time to search friends’ sites, used to be more private

  • enter newsfeed: not so public--YIKES!--people hated it

    • ZUCHERBERG Adapted FB to choose HOW public you want your information

    • People loved it

  • “The bits of trivia that News Feed delivered gave them more things to talk about — Why do you hate Kiefer Sutherland? — when they met friends face to face in class or at a party.”

  • Some facts about facebook

  • People felt more connected to friends

  • FB now has 100 million users

  • People are drawn to incessant online contact: social scientists call it “ambient awareness.”

  • Microblogging: posting tiny updates of what you’re doing.

  • Who cares about what you’re doing?

    • Lots of people.

    • Feel more connected….sense the rhythm of friends lives so much better

    • On their own, updates are insignificant, but over time….

  • Similar pattern evident w/ mobile phones

questions about facebook

What sort of relationships are FB friends?

What does it mean to have hundreds of “friends” on Facebook?

What kind of friends are they, anyway?

thinking about facebook

“Dunbar number”: human groupings naturally tail off at around 150 people

“sociality haS truly exploded in people’s “weak ties” — loose acquaintances, people they knew less well. It might be someone they met at a conference, or someone from high school who recently “friended” them on Facebook, or somebody from last year’s holiday party.”

“weak ties” greatly expand your ability to solve problems.”

thinking about facebook

Problems with such a huge expansion of weak ties?

“Psychologists and sociologists spent years wondering how humanity would adjust to the anonymity of life in the city, the wrenching upheavals of mobile immigrant labor — a world of lonely people ripped from their social ties. We now have precisely the opposite problem.”

“On the internet: nobody knows if you’re a dog no longer applies….”If anything, it’s identity-constraining now…You can’t play with your identity if your audience is always checking up on you.”
