Great Fortune Article on Social Media cliché, possible implications. Mark Zuckerberg is in the hot seat. Can or will FaceWaster help change the universe for the better and be this huge advertising marketing generator to create or shape this socially awkward universe? I think Facebook may have killed human interaction all together. Meaning communicating with one another in real life? Do you all remember real life human interaction? Kids growing today do not know how to interface with one another. Perhaps, Tom Anderson my idol at Myspace. is responsible. Is social media making people healthier? Humans need to learn how to smile and say “Hi” when they walk out in the earth.

Nextdoor is proud to partner with NATW to sponsor National Night Out, and we’ve created tools to help you plan and promote your neighborhood’s NNO event to build a safer and stronger community.
National Night Out – taking place around the country on August 7* – is a great opportunity to meet your neighbors and get them involved in your Nextdoor website. The more you get together and connect with your neighbors, the safer your community will be year-round.

Upstart wants to offer students the chance to start their own companies.
FORTUNE -- In his 8 years at Google, where he was president of the company’s enterprise business, Dave Girouard hired new college grads in droves. While the Google gigs might have made their classmates envious, it turns out that many of them would have forged different, more independent paths, had they been given the chance.

By insisting that its users declare that they "like" pages they want to follow, Facebook actually creates all kinds of potential headaches.
FORTUNE -- On Facebook I have "liked" both the conservative American Legislative Exchange Council and that group's arch-enemy, the liberal Center for Media and Democracy. Those two organizations loathe each other. I don't particularly like either of them, but I do follow news surrounding ALEC, and the only option Facebook offers for following ALEC's page, and the page of one of its chief critics, is the "like." You can truly hate something, but if you want to follow it on Facebook, you have to declare that you like it.
