Everyone’s spending increasingly more consumption time dicking around in apps and snacking on bite-sized social content instead of browsing websites and searching Google.
Publishers are relying more on social traffic not because Google’s squeezing them out, but because that’s where everyone went. The dominance of mobile usage, social networks, and YouTube, plus attention-competition from apps, are the real problems for web publishers and blog writers.
The social and app revolutions haven’t been purely additive — much of the time people spend on those now has come at the expense of search, RSS, and bookmarks.
You’ll get no arguments from me. I tend to skim the social medias more than Googling these days. All the peeps are there and I’m much more interested in what they’re doing and reading than rummaging around with what Google has to offer. A peep’s opinion that I trust has much more weight than a search algorithm.
I’m still a big proponent of RSS, I’m in my RSS reader at least twice a day. There’s a whole lot of bullshit on the web and I prefer sticking with the sites that make it easy for me to get and read their content. And I only subscribe to blogs and sites that I trust as well.
Wikipedia is another frequent stop. I’d rather start my research there with measure of quality than starting with a blank page of Google unless I’m looking for very specific technical items. Then I always seem to end up on Stack Overflow anyways.
Maybe that’s the whole thing. Maybe it all comes down to trust.

My whole life 2day is sort of about honoring the past without living n it, i accept myself 2day, 4 most part & aint living with my head n past or future pretty good bv when u & i’s relationship n the past popped n2 my present moment, thats how i deal with past now, not sweat & cipher & wring my hands, i did that 2 point of redundancy & with another person we both know, she say, ‘yeah, we’re fukn good & what u can do is NEVER BRING IT UP AGAIN!!!’ I say, ‘oh’ & so thats how its been. Alot of others actf like I was outta my mind-my fukn insanity was big joyride & if table turned i dont believe thats how i would have perceived it. Jimmy crops n2 my present every now & again cause he did me alot of good & i self-righteously shit on him when he was down.
there were many occasions when he needed a real friend & despite his skills & intuition & knowing i had turned n2 a self-righteous, moralizing reactive prick-he turned 2 me & got his fingers bit by the wounded animal he knew i was. I could be everything but a friend..Just learning bout it now really. I came 2 terms with Jim & I might bump n2 eachother again & if we dont well-it was just best 2 leave it alone… but KNOW i was wrong with him & about him & gave him some really scathing, seething sermons when that bout the last thing he needed. With some others i can say i was big fukhead but when chips were really down i came thru…not so with jimmy-when he really needed me…i failed him everytime :-( but @ l do know it & accept it & can move 4ward.

…An infamous 1998 study in The Lancet, which claimed that the rising incidence of autism was linked to vaccinations, was particularly influential with some of those parents—even though the data were found to be falsified and the author’s medical license was revoked…
…Asked about immunization on CNN last week, Senator Rand Paul, a potential Republican candidate for President—and a doctor—painted a pointlessly terrifying scenario: “I’ve heard of many tragic cases of walking, talking, normal children who wound up with profound mental disorders after vaccines.” No doubt, he has heard such stories, but the evidence does not support them…
I cherry picked what I thought most important.
