What’s wrong with Twitter 2011?

  • Twitter is secretly fundraising for a huge valuation ...

    Why its founders quitting one after other ?

    The company that compited with Big coperate companies like Google and facebook is now suffering...
    The most recent departure was Biz Stone, a cofounder who announced his plans to leave in late June. He will join Twitter cofounder Evan Williams, who bailed out a few months ago for a company called Obvious, the company that spun off Twitter. The third cofounder, Jack Dorsey, works part time at Twitter while also serving as CEO of a startup called Square.
    Dorsey was Twitter’s first CEO. He was replaced by Williams when Dorsey became chairman. Williams was replaced as CEO by Dick Costolo, who was hired from Google. Dorsey came back when Costolo took over, but then Williams left, though he remains on the board of directors. Shockingly, after all this turnover, Twitter still can’t get any traction as a business. Revenues may reach $150 million this year and $250 million in 2012, according to eMarketer, which tracks online ad spending. But that’s puny compared with this year’s sales at Facebook ($4 billion), Groupon ($3 billion), and Zynga ($1.8 billion). Add to that the FTC’s reported look into allegations that Twitter has engaged in anticompetitive behavior with companies that develop applications and services that run on top of its network.
    Venture capitalists have pumped $360 million into Twitter, and recently the company was reported to be raising more money based on a stunning valuation of $7 billion, roughly double its valuation from only seven months ago. Should anyone be concerned that the cofounders can’t be bothered to stick around? A spokeswoman provides a canned statement claiming the three founders remain “deeply connected” to the company—Dorsey with his part-time role, Williams with a board seat, and Stone doing some fuzzy stuff about “social-good efforts.” The funny thing is that right now the market for tech IPOs is heating up so much that Twitter, despite its woes, could probably make a fortune by selling stock to the public. Twitter’s three cofounders may have the best-paying part-time jobs of all time.

    Goolge+ : Facebook killer

    Google's experiments with social media have largely landed with a particularly embarrassing thud--Buzz was a security nightmare, Wave was incomprehensible, and Orkut is only popular in Brazil, for some reason. But Google is nothing if not determined, and today announced its biggest social push ever: Google+. It is definitely similar to Facebook at first glance, but there's a fundamentally different idea underlying Google+ that separates it from the pack. Facebook was an outcropping of networks like MySpace and dating sites--centered around the profile page. Google+, though, is a sharing engine.
    More people visit Google's network of websites than Facebook each month, but Facebook is killing the search company in categories that advertisers care most about: Time spent and pages viewed. Users spent 62% more time on Facebook than on Google last month, and viewed more than twice the number of pages on Facebook as they did on Google, according to comScore.
    Google's (GOOG, Fortune 500) latest solution to this growing trend is Google+, a new social network that tries to out-Facebook Facebook. On Facebook, people are either "friends" or not. Google+ makes that distinction more fluid, letting users group their contacts into smaller categories, such as relatives, co-workers, or members of a yoga class. Information can be shared selectively with each group.
    "The subtlety and substance of real-world interactions are lost in the rigidness of our online tools," said Vic Gundotra, Google's senior vice president of social, in a blog post. "In this basic, human way, online sharing is awkward. Even broken. And we aim to fix it."
    Google+ features several components that attempt to mimic natural human interaction. For instance, to simulate sitting out on your front porch, one feature allows users to declare that they're "hanging out" and interested in video chatting if a select group of people are around. Another lets users chat with a particular set of people -- say, before they all meet at a concert.
    Google often denies that Facebook is the company's primary competitor, and Gundotra said Google+ was "not a reaction to Facebook." Yet sources with knowledge of the project say that Google+ was known internally as "Googbook." Google devoted 300 people to the team.
    Unlike Google's previous social attempts, such Orkut and Buzz -- which had big, bold launches and are largely considered failures -- Google is moving slowly and cautiously with Google+. It has only been launched for a small group of users, and others need to be invited to the service to use it.
    Google also doesn't consider Google+ to be a separate product, exactly. Rather, the company says it is an extension of things you can already do on Google. A toolbar will be available atop all Google sites, and users can download an Android or Chrome application to get notifications and share content.
    For instance, a user could be in Google Maps, and share directions with a group. Search results, documents, even advertisements could be shared using Google+.

    Google's social puzzle pieces

    At the same time, the company is also trying to be extra careful about ensuring users' privacy, which ultimately killed any chance Buzz had of succeeding. Buzz was built on top of Gmail, Google's e-mail client, and a confusing one-two punch in Buzz's default settings automatically followed Gmail users' most e-mailed contacts. Initially, those contacts were revealed publicly after a user "buzzed" about something.
    Google's first attempt at a social network, Orkut, has also been plagued by privacy concerns, especially when it was hit with a virus in 2010 that collected users' personal information.
    With Google+, content is only shared with a specific, intended audience -- it is not shared publicly like content is on Twitter. Continuing the theme of mimicking face-to-face conversations, Google executives compare Google+ interactions to lowering a person's voice to keep something between friends, telling a joke at a party or sharing an idea at a meeting. Each has a different expectation of privacy, which is understood in context by the people involved in the conversation.
    After Buzz and Orkut never took off in the way the company had hoped, former CEO Eric Schmidt announced that Google would no longer consider launching a full-on Facebook competitor. Instead, he said, Google would incorporate "social elements" in all of its products.
    Then-President Larry Page disagreed with Schmidt. After Page took over as CEO in April, the company began to focus more intently on doing battle with Facebook, including reportedly linking employees' bonuses to Google's success in social networking.
    At the All Things D conference last month, Schmidt said Google's social failings were his fault.
    "I clearly knew that I had to do something, and I failed to do it," he said. "A CEO should take responsibility. I screwed up."

    Amazon stop working with California-based Web affiliates

  • by

  • Inc. said Wednesday that it will stop working with online affiliates based in California since the state passed a new rule that forces online retailers to collect sales tax there.
    In an email Wednesday to California-based affiliates — individuals or companies who run websites that refer visitors to Amazon and then get a cut of any resulting sales — the Seattle-based company said it would cut ties with those who reside in the nation's most populous state if the law became effective. Gov. Jerry Brown signed the law Wednesday as part of a larger state budget package.
    The rule requires online retailers such as Amazon to collect sales taxes if they have in-state affiliates.
    In its email, Amazon called the bill "unconstitutional" and "counterproductive."
    Passage of the law, which is projected to net $200 million annually, adds California to a growing list of states that have enacted such legislation in hopes of bringing in more tax revenue.
    Billions of dollars are at stake as a growing number of states look for ways to generate more revenue without violating a 1992 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that prohibits a state from forcing businesses to collect sales taxes unless the business has a physical presence, such as a store, in that state. When consumers order from out-of-state retailers, they're supposed to pay the tax that is due, but they rarely do and it's difficult to enforce.
    States are trying to get around the Supreme Court restriction by passing laws that broaden the definition of a physical presence. Online retailers, meanwhile, are resisting being deputized as tax collectors.
    California will become the latest state in which Amazon has parted ways with members of its Amazon Associates Program. Already it has said goodbye to affiliates in states including Arkansas, Connecticut and Illinois due to the passage of similar online sales tax laws. Smaller competitor Inc. has shuttered its affiliate programs in several states due to the laws as well.
    California passed such a law in 2009, but then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed it.

    Pop Star Justin Timberlake is the part of group and buying MySpace

  • Justin Randall Timberlake is an American pop musician and actor. He has won six Grammy Awards as well as two Emmy Awards. He is part of a group that said Wednesday it will buy MySpace from News Corp., a bid to add some cool to a social network that has been losing it for some time.
    Timberlake will become a part owner and play "a major role in developing the creative direction and strategy for the company moving forward," according to Specific Media, the company that he will partner with.
    The deal is for $35 million, mostly in Specific Media stock, according to a person familiar with the matter. The deal values MySpace at a fraction of what News Corp. paid for the site six years ago and paves the way for the layoff of about half of the 500 workers, the person said. As part of the exchange, News Corp. will receive a private equity stake in Specific Media.
    With Timberlake's help, the buyers hope to revitalize MySpace and transform it into a destination for original shows, as well as bolster its already available video content and music.
    "There's a need for a place where fans can go to interact with their favorite entertainers, listen to music, watch videos, share and discover cool stuff and just connect. MySpace has the potential to be that place," Timberlake said in a statement.
    The sale is expected to close later Wednesday, a day before the end of News Corp.'s fiscal year. News Corp. will maintain less than a 5 percent stake in the site, said the person, who was not authorized to speak publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.
    News Corp. bought MySpace for $580 million in 2005, but users, advertisers and musicians who once relied on it for promotion fled the site for other hotter social networks like Facebook and Twitter. Less than half of MySpace's 74 million monthly visitors are now in the United States, where its visitor count dropped by half in May to 35 million, according to tracking firm comScore Inc.
    Specific Media confirmed the acquisition but not the terms of the deal Wednesday.
    "We look forward to partnering with someone as talented as Justin Timberlake, who will lead the business strategy with his creative ideas and vision for transforming MySpace," said Specific Media CEO Tim Vanderhook in a statement. "This is the next chapter of digital media, and we are excited to have a hand in writing the script."
    MySpace CEO Mike Jones, the last member of a three-member executive team appointed to fix the site in April 2009, said in a memo to staff Wednesday that he would help with the transition for two months before departing.
    MySpace launched in 2003, founded by entrepreneurs Chris DeWolfe and Tom Anderson, who is every MySpace user's first friend. It became a popular Internet destination and a key way for little-known musicians to market themselves and interact with their fans.
    But MySpace lost its footing over the years as the fun of customizing one's profile began to bore its users and heavy use of banner advertisements slowed the speed at which pages load. Meanwhile, Facebook, founded in 2004, limited what users and advertisers could do, but kept pages clean, and freshened them with its "news feed" of updates, a feature that MySpace later copied.
    People found Facebook easier to use and a great migration from MySpace to Facebook picked up several years ago. When Facebook began allowing apps, including music functions and addictive games like "FarmVille," MySpace was left in the dust. According to comScore, Facebook now has more than a billion users worldwide.
    "Apps were the breaking point and MySpace could never recover from that," said Charlene Li, a social media analyst and founder of Altimeter Group.
    Rohit Kulkarni, an 18-year-old member of the San Jose, Calif. pop punk band Four O'Clock Heroes, said his group once exclusively used MySpace to reach fans with their music, but they haven't checked the site in months. They opened their Facebook band page last year.
    "Most of our following was already on Facebook anyways," Kulkarni said. "Nowadays, people use Facebook over MySpace because it's integrated into almost everything, like all your mobile phones. I'm guessing that's why it became more popular."
    Even "FarmVille" game-maker Zynga has taken a role promoting music, as shown recently when Lady Gaga unveiled her new album there.
    Timberlake's involvement is a clear sign that MySpace will try to reconnect with its musical roots.
    Over the last 11 quarters, News Corp. had cumulatively lost about $1.4 billion on the business segment that houses MySpace. By getting rid of the site before the close of the fiscal year, News Corp. has rid itself of about $250 million in losses this year, estimated Barclays Capital analyst Anthony DiClemente.
    At $35 million, Specific Media gets an Internet property for a price that Li called "ridiculously low" and values each monthly U.S. visitor at about $1 each. Its new owners should be able to recoup their investment if the company gets each user to click on about 20 ads over their lifetime, she said.
    Specific Media, based in Irvine, Calif., brokers the sale of ads to websites and has dabbled in creating original programming and matching it with sponsors. The company was founded in 1999 by brothers Tim, Chris and Russell Vanderhook.
