CLO Magazine

However, skeptics around the world question the potential of Google+ with the failure of Google Wave and competition from Facebook.

From Snapchat’s debut in 2011 to Twitter’s ugly war with Meerkat and its later acquisition of the streaming service, Periscope , Facebook is now tentatively entering the live streaming market.

Activity Streams

Jay Cross

An activity stream is a mash-up of an individual’s or organization’s feeds. As people use various different web sites to blog, update their status, post their location, or photos, sites and tools have emerged to aggregate these various actions into a continuous eclectic stream of activities.
