  1. Robert scoble is kind of a self-important douchebag. I had him on g+ for a while because he covered some topics that interest me… But then I realized he mainly just talks about subjects as a way to promote himself and obviously it works. This article is a perfect example of that.

  2. All of these social networks should take note that ANY service they offer integrated with the network should have an on button and an off button. Why is this so commonly overlooked?
