Losing interest in social media: there is no there there

George Siemens

Google+ was a bit of a breaking point for me. After recreating my online social network ( largely based on blogs from early 2000) in Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, and Quora, G+ was a chore.

Reddit and community journalism

David Weinberger
