  • 16. “Mark (Zukerberg) has the most long-term perspective I’ve ever see. This guy is uber uber uber on the long-term view.”-David Kilpatrick, author of “The Facebook Effect: The Inside Story of the Company That is Connecting the World”
  • 17. Twitter
  • 18. “... We came across the word ‘twitter’ and it was just perfect. The definition was ‘a short burst of inconsequential information,’ and ‘chirps from birds.’ And that was exactly what the product was. The whole bird thing: bird chirps sound meaningless to us, but meaning is applied by other birds. The same is true of Twitter: a lot of messages can be seen as completely useless and meaning less, but it’s entirely dependent on the recipient.” - Jack Dorsey, Twitter co-founder in an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Feb. 2009
  • 19. New kids on the block? “Perhaps the most heartening observation from the Snapchat/Instagram phenomenon is that new social behaviors can and will happen. For a time the door may have seemed closed. Yet Flickr sprung out of nowhere in2002 when nobody else believed in consumer web. Ten years later, it might be deja vu all over again. - Posterous co-founder Garry Tan, on the social media use of the younger generation.

Some final thoughts• You are only still one person online.• True privacy cannot be achieved online• It’s OK to take a break.• It’s not about you.• Social media is, and will always be, a moving target.• Social media is open ended. Experiment until something sticks. If something doesn’t work, drop it. (Well, unless you have to do it for class. )
