Google's Horowitz deconstructs Facebook

http://j.mp/VcUPr4  (Business Insider)

   "In addition to touting Google+'s user stats (400 million registered
    users, including 100 million who visit the mobile app or website at
    least once a month), Horowitz took some time to slam Facebook's
    strategy of shoving ads in your news feed.  He used the metaphor of a
    guy with a sandwich board running in between an intimate conversation
    between a man and his daughter, an obvious allusion to the ads and
    promoted brands you see in your Facebook news feed."

Amen.  Video interview of Bradley at the link is well worth viewing.
So many people I know who use Facebook say that they feel *obligated*
to use it because other people they know use it, even though they
don't *like* using it.  That leaves tremendous room for products that
people *do* like to use.
