For my Fun Friday Foto:
I thought it would be fun to snap this picture yesterday and share with you while I was in Mountain View, CA. This is Silicon Valley. This particular company has been in the news quite a bit because of their recent IPO. I access their network everyday, I don't really think about their office building.
I read this interesting comparison of three famous Silicon Valley companies, by Sharon Machlis. Of the sizzling three, Facebook, Linked In, Twitter – 2 of the companies located10 miles of each other (Mountain View and Palo Alto) and with Twitter in San Francisco. I agree with how Machlis summarizes each.
I admit, I am an early user with some success of all three networks, as each company started. Am I amazed all 3 are super star businesses now? How will they evolve? As these networks seem to be over crowded now, I tend to search for the next rising star.
Linked In is located only 2-3 miles away from the Google campus. Don't forget the growing Apple Computer, although much, much older in years, is nearby in Cupertino, 15 miles south.
As I mentioned many times, Silicon Valley is always changing, it might be as soon as overnight when you drive by and see a temporary cover over a company sign because of an acquisition.
This is Silicon Valley!

How do you use each of these social networking companies?
