A survey conducted by Pew Research Centre on the perception & implication of tattoos in the workplace offers the following interesting statistics
Here’s an inane extraction // why should twitter make 140 characters the first face of a story and introduce a cover story follow up the tweet. Twitter’s philosophy of contenting updates via tweets is based on how shortly we can define experiences & occurrences. User’s at times feel the need for the extra characters and will also help preserve the context of the tweet messages by without forced errors from synced Facebook, Pinterest, Vine, Instagram messages.
By forced errors we are referring to the incomplete words that sometimes indexes via updates on twitter from other synced social networks. a vine video tweet may come up like
Here because the tweet originated from a pin board on Pinterest. Unlike Twitter, Pinterest gives much more space than the former so that the original context and meaning of the tweet including words don’t go missing to stop create four nought four pages.
Twitter ideologies are thereby also not hurt by the amendment of 140 characters. Make the new system more prone to intelligent detection of sentences that are formed before publishing the final 140 including the links, hashtags & images. Easier said than done of course!
Cover story follow up tweet of the intended first tweet will allow the indexing of the complete context of a social networking updates and also preserving an error free publish on behalf of the user.

Google is dogfooding (tech slang for working out the glitches) its next generation bookmarking extension Stars which has been doing the rounds on & off the Chrome App store with the latest leak reported in mid August 2014.
Google Stars works similar to Pinterest and looks like Google Drive as well as an able replacement for +1 button. Source
Once the Google Stars chrome extension gets installed, the welcome screen enlists the following benefits:
Beautiful Grid Interface
Drag and Drop UI
Auto Organization by Topic
The extension then automatically collates history of topics that you’re fascinated with or stuff that has been bookmarked by you according to a date based timeline. Users can organize the saved bookmarks or add stars into the folders for easier access and then further opt to share the folders. The extension typically replaces the “bookmark” icon in Chrome’s omnibox another term for the address bar ensuring that users do not generate duplicate bookmarks by instead directing & marking new bookmarks into Stars.
Google Stars extension dashboard allows users to search saved bookmarks, engage with bookmarks by editing & socially sharing it with friends & followers as they organize their bookmarks using a Google Drive like folder system.
How much of Google Stars will actually implicate SEO is hard to say for now but one thing that Stars promises is it can better quality signal to Google than a +1 vote. +1s are public by default and Stars are private by default. Who knows in the days to come, Google may decide to integrate Stars as one of their many ranking signals in the near future. Until then we wait till they officially launch the handy chrome extension.
Owing to the on & off screen appearances in the Chrome App store, the installation file once downloaded needs to be dragged inside browser extension page from Tools > Extension. Clicking on the downloaded file may not successfully trigger the complete installation for the Google Stars Chrome extension.
