We are having quite a conversation over on Google+ about something Facebook does a lot better: keeping the conversation on track. Thanks to the Facebook teams for working to reduce noise and increase signals here. I know I've given you heck for when you blocked me, but I am really seeing a huge increase in quality here lately and that's due to your noise controls. Thanks Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg and Elliot Schrage and your teams!
This is one of the places where we need dramatically more innovation. It's why I like Flipboard so much. It is trying to remove noise and increase signal. Hey, Flipboard's CEO: Mike McCue, I won't be shocked if someone bought Flipboard for multiple billions of dollars. In fact I'm shocked there hasn't been a bidding war yet between Amazon, Apple, Google, Facebook, and Microsoft for your company. Noise controls are going to be a major differentiator and already are for Facebook (and they get better and better every week, both because I'm putting more effort into Facebook, but also because the algorithms themselves get better as those hackers over in San Mateo check in new code).
Anyway, bring on more noise controls!
