About Google and me
We closed the old Google & Me since we could not use Adsense with this domain name. All the old content have move to our new Revenue Provider blog
The “old” emails might be taking over all social considerations soon. There is so much twitter, Facebook likes and other social media buzz that the real message is drowning. People can not absorb all the information that the internet is feeding us with. In the near future people will just shut off the social media and head back to networking face to face but the step before that is people go back to reading emails. But the problem you might face as a business is “where do I find these people” nobody use email anymore and the Facebook accounts just have LIKE ME. But you wrong, most people are still using email for business but the buzz in media is all about social media. However most business to business leads are still done old fashion style. So forget the Facebook for a while and go back and write some emails to companies and you see people are respond to emails.
One company that understood that Facebook is a face that will not reach serious business people is List Giant. They have sold target email lists to Fortune 500 companies among others. Successful companies and people still use email and they might use Facebook to push their company profile, but they still relay on emails. If you want a reach a special niche market this is the company for you.
With all due respect to Facebook’s target marketing ads when did you make a business deal on Facebook?
Based on unprecedented access he received to the highly secretive “Googleplex,” acclaimed New York Times columnist Randall Stross takes readers deep inside Google, the most important, most innovative, and most ambitious company of the Internet Age. His revelations demystify the strategy behind the company’s recent flurry of bold moves, all driven by the pursuit of a business plan unlike any other: to become the indispensable gatekeeper of all the world’s information, the one-stop destination for all our information needs. Will Google succeed? And what are the implications of a single company commanding so much information and knowing so much about us?
As ambitious as Google’s goal is, with 68 percent of all Web searches (and growing), profits that are the envy of the business world, and a surplus of talent, the company is, Stross shows, well along the way to fulfilling its ambition, becoming as dominant a force on the Web as Microsoft became on the PC. Google isn’t just a superior search service anymore. In recent years it has launched a dizzying array of new services and advanced into whole new businesses, from the introductions of its controversial Book Search and the irresistible Google Earth, to bidding for a slice of the wireless-phone spectrum and nonchalantly purchasing YouTube for $1.65 billion.
Google has also taken direct aim at Microsoft’s core business, offering free e-mail and software from word processing to spreadsheets and calendars, pushing a transformative — and highly disruptive — concept known as “cloud computing.” According to this plan, users will increasingly store all of their data on Google’s massive servers — a network of a million computers that amounts to the world’s largest supercomputer, with unlimited capacity to house all the information Google seeks.
The more offerings Google adds, and the more ubiquitous a presence it becomes, the more dependent its users become on its services and the more information they contribute to its uniquely comprehensive collection of data. Will Google stay true to its famous “Don’t Be Evil” mantra, using its power in its customers’ best interests?
Stross’s access to those who have spearheaded so many of Google’s new initiatives, his penetrating research into the company’s strategy, and his gift for lively storytelling produce an entertaining, deeply informed, and provocative examination of the company’s audacious vision for the future and the consequences not only for the business world, but for our culture at large.
