Notification Overload and User Control
"Web browser users do more than browse and search. They employ detailed, sophisticated, and mentally engrossing workflows to complete tasks online. While engaged in these concentrated activities, we learned that users’ attention is sometimes disrupted by “unimportant” or unwanted interruptions from smartphone and OS-based notifications. Based on our research in Germany, we learned what “important” notifications mean for some users and offer suggestions on how applications and services can provide users more control over notifications."

The history of social networking
"Long before it became the commercialized mass information and entertainment juggernaut it is today, long before it was accessible to the general public, and certainly many years before Al Gore claimed he “took the initiative in creating” it, the Internet – and its predecessors – were a focal point for social interactivity.

Sweep the Sleaze
"Promising to make you look wired and magically promote your content in social networks, the Like, Retweet, and +1 buttons occupy a good spot on pretty much every page of the World Wide Web. Because of this, almost every major site and brand is providing free advertising for Twitter and Facebook. But do these buttons work?"

Must-Have Social Meta Tags for Twitter, Google+, Facebook and More
By including social metadata in all new pieces of content that we publish, we can optimize how that content appears on social networks. Thumbnails, author names, proper descriptions, and other rich information directly correlate with clicks and shares.

Responsible Social Share Links
"Social share scripts are convenient and easy to copy & paste but rely on JavaScript and add additional overhead to your site, which means more HTTP requests and slower load times. Instead, use share links that don’t require you to load scripts for each social site."

A time for sharing (government content on Facebook and Twitter)

Frictionless and frictionfull sharing and where the meaning lies.
"Frictionlessly shared things feel devoid of meaning to me. They were shared automagically without human intervention and, as such, all they have is an algorithmic relationship with that person." - Makes me wonder about the worth of +1 and Like buttons, where's the curation?

Designing for Social Interaction
Social networks tend to map our existing relationships, and not create new ones. They also do a bad job of helping us manage those relationships by lumping everyone into a big bucket of "friends". Also of note: "for 90% of Facebook users, 20% of their friends account for 70% of all interactions.".
