Google,Facebook and Twitter are taking an important step towards integrating their social media platforms in their core businesses, and that’s a huge deal.
But the move is also being accompanied by a lot of uncertainty.
We spoke to Facebook’s Chief Marketing Officer, Brad Smith, who has a lot to answer for.
The social network has made a lot more noise in recent weeks than I would have liked, but it’s not necessarily the right move.
We’re not ready to talk about a timeline or a timeline of when we’re going to do that yet.
But we’re moving in that direction.
There’s lots of data and metrics on Facebook.
It’s just a matter of getting the right people in the right places and doing the right things.
I’m sure they’ve all heard of “dismantling the wall.”
But this is more than that.
It is an existential threat.
There is an idea that social media is just another way of sending information.
That’s not what it’s about.
I think it’s the wrong message.
I know that people love their news, and they love their entertainment.
But they also love their relationships.
They love their community, and so they’re willing to share with each other.
It takes more than the sharing of information.
It also takes a deep understanding of people.
And we’re not even there yet.
There are a lot who will say that there is a big gap between Facebook and Google.
That Facebook is doing too much.
They’re too aggressive in what they’re doing.
But I would argue that there are some big differences between the two platforms that we haven’t even talked about.
There are some key differences that we’ve been missing.
So what are those key differences?
Well, for one, we’re all about building the right kinds of experiences for people who want to be part of the conversation.
We know how important it is to engage with other people.
We all want to talk to people, so we’re really excited about what we’re seeing with the tools that Facebook is creating and how much they’re embracing social.
We’ve had a lot in the past week of excitement around the fact that there’s a new type of product coming out of the social network, and I’m sure we’re hearing lots of other conversations around that.
And I think the next step will be that we’ll see all these different products.
There will be new ways for people to engage, and new ways to get to know each other and to get things done.
And then we’ll be able to bring all of that together.
But there’s another big difference that we really need to talk a lot about.
We have a lot going on at the same time.
We are working to build the platform that makes all of our users, all of the things that we value, all the things we care about, accessible.
So that means the next generation of social media will not be Facebook-based.
We’re going back to our core.
We’ve made this transition in our business to allow more people to share, more people have access to information, and we are creating a new model for people that are using these tools.
We really do want people to have access and be part to the conversation and to the process, but we’re also trying to make sure that we’re providing those services and our content and our communities with the best possible tools to do it.
And it’s a big deal to me that we have such a great and important part of our business.
And this is an opportunity for us to be more visible and to really do that.
We’ll have more to say on this at the company’s quarterly investor call on May 19, and at a future date we’ll also have more on the company-wide change that’s happening.
