When social media stopped being social


Mike Elgan is spot on here, but the same problem exists with Google, which has just killed off the desktop notifier to enforce lock in to Chrome and Google+. Twitter is slightly less evil at present but headed the same way.

I'm about ready to walk away from them all. But they still have value for me, in a range of different ways. Until I have viable alternatives to build on, I am locked in. But at least now I know I'm looking for a solution. One thing I know from previous network migrations - you can't simply port an existing network to a new location, you start again each time, not quite from scratch, but close enough.
