For social sharing, Apple turns to Twitter again

  1. I personally couldn’t care less about twitter integration. Most of those integration points make a lot more sense with Facebook or even Google+, but because Apple decided to take their ball and go home the users lose out. Wake me up when you have a real social network.

  2. Sounds like to me Apple are merely trying their best not to help Facebook and Google become anymore dominent than they already are.

    Facebook is already too powerful and Google with G+ and YouTube are likely to push the Android cause more and more in future.

    So they’ve opted for the safe bets, the path of least resistance to iOS superiority in future

  3. Nothing GOOGLE is going to be there for sharing, so forget YouTube. Apple doesn’t ALWAYS do things good for the user, otherwise you’d see Facebook and YouTube with it… They are a company; they are going to do what is good for them and the user at the same time.

  4. Dear
    Twitter, Facebook, Google, Etc, Etc,
    Can you treat the “Communities” that has given you value with respect by becoming transparent about what exactly it is you do with their content and activity to generate hunders of millions of dollars in revenue ?

    I have been involved in developing consumer tech for over 15 years and I know that it does not have to be this way.  

    We the “Community” that have allowed our value to be extracted by Twitter, Facebook and others so that they can generate billions deserve better than to be treated like products that are sold to the highest bidders. The Communities that add the value should be treated with respect.
    I have been attempting to develop technology with the idea that “Community” that creates and adds value should come “First”
     
    http://www.kleemi.com is my current attempt to brings this dream into reality. Kleemi is in an early beta but at this point still offers cutting edge search, a news reader, and a micro blog service. In the coming weeks we will make some major announcements about some of our new service that will turn the pyramid right side up.

  5. Twitter and Vimeo, the hipster networks! Tumblr’s next. 😉

    It’s weird since Apple’s fast becoming a very mainstream brand. Hoping they patch things up with Facebook and Google (for Youtube).

    Btw, share sheets remind me so much of Windows 8’s share charm.
