Google, Social Networking Sites (Facebook, Myspace, etc), and Your Information

With Google’s recent announcement that they’ll now be adding real time information to web searches via Twitter, MySpace, Facebook, and other social networking sites, I figured I would put together a post on the subject of online privacy.

I’m sure many of you have seen the latest wave of tweets, emails, and Facebook updates similar to the below excerpt:

As of today, Facebook will automatically index all your info on Google, which allows everyone to view it. To change this option, go to Settings –> Privacy Settings –> Search –> then UN-CLICK the box that says ‘Allow indexing’. Copy and paste onto your status for all your friends to see ASAP.

Now I’d like to dismiss this rumor as being entirely false, but the privacy of your Facebook (and your Twitter, Myspace, etc all) information is entirely up to you and your settings.

Read on to learn more about how to control your privacy, and how Google, Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, and the others are using your information.

Designers and Developers, Are You Throwing Away Good Money?

Just read a great article over on Css Tricks about “The Heating Company Analogy” for Designers and Developers, and wanted to follow up with my own post on the topic.

The basic idea behind the article is just like the heating/oil company tries to anticipate your needs and charge you a steady rate throughout the year, we need to anticipate our clients needs and give them a similar option.  Whether you’re offering graphic design, web design, development, or any other of a myriad of services, you should be able to use a subscription-based offering for additional work with your clients.
