I recently spoke with a business group on the merits of Facebook and LinkedIn for business use.  Since our chat was all too brief, I wanted to place some resources on our website for attendees to refer to when they needed to know more. It occurred to me everyone may like to see such a list, so …

Is Facebook one-upping Google+ Circles?

Smart-Lists1

One of the things I’ve heard the Google+ fanbois go on about is how cool Circles are: you can actually group your friends and share content (or not) by those groups – why doesn’t Facebook do that?! The answer, of course, is that they do… and have since 2007. The problem with Facebook’s Friends Lists, …
