There are still many in the search engine optimization industry that are fighting the concept that Google (and Bing) is taking social signals into account at a high level when determining search rankings. The reality is that, based upon extensive testing that we’ve been running (not to mention some of the things that Google has said over the last couple of years), social signals have a significant impact on the overall SEO of websites.

Unfortunately, most people will never take accountability for how their words have changed due to social media. A cloud hangs over Manhattan. forthcoming Columbia University and University of Pittsburgh study shows that surfing on Facebook with close friends lowers inhibitions towards self control. The study says that with an inflated positive self caused by ego-stroking on Facebook we feel more inclined to take license. So know we know the medium is toxic. Does that give us license to behave poorly? That’s true. What do I mean by that? License to Snark? Image by hyku.
