I’ve completely moved to social media

07 Jun

The world is moving on and I’ve decided to completely move my writing activities to social media.

Most of my recent posts can be found on Medium.

You might also want to follow me on Twitter, Facebook or Google+.

I’m mostly keeping this blog to not break links elsewhere (think “archives”) and for the about page.

From the Svbtle homepage:

“SVBTLE is a new kind of magazine. We’re a network of great people mixed with a platform that takes the best things from publishing and combines them with the best parts of the web. We want to make it easier for people to share and discover new ideas.”

Find my SVBTLE contributions at ralfrottmann.net and feel free to subscribe to the feed.

I’m excited to become a part of this diverse, inspiring, motivating, thought-provoking, educating and eye-opening community. I will keep my personal blog for deep tech talk and use SVBTLE mostly for all other posts.


Reworking social features… done!

So much is going on in the Social Media & Networks world that it’s sometimes hard to keep up.

I’ve taken today’s bank holiday here in Germany to rework all the social features available on 24100.NET and its German sister site. I’ve completely removed TweetMeme integration, as stats indicated not so many readers are using it anyway. Also, you can no longer amplify posts straight from the title.

Instead, I’ve added Google’s +1 button (2) which just launched a day ago. In addition, you now have the option to follow me on Twitter with just one click (1). The TweetMeme button has been replaced with the official Tweet Web Intend (3) straight from Twitter Inc.

Finally, as I currently consider Empire Avenue the best tool to measure social media reach, I dedicated a pretty prominent part of 24100.NET to showing my ticker symbol (4).

I’m keeping Facebook comment integration alongside the native comments. While many have criticized Facebook comments as just another attempt of the company to take over the Web, I actually find it pretty useful as it takes the discussion to where many of my readers expand their social activities.

Last but not least I’ve fixed a long standing Open Graph related bug, that prevented 24100.NET posts from showing up nicely on Facebook.

I hope you like the more cleaned up social features. If you haven’t done so, go ahead follow me, Tweet this post and +1 it on Google!

The digital age raises numerous questions as towards the credibility of news, images, audio and video footage.

I believe, I’ve found the universal answer. Turn up your speakers, switch to fullscreen and watch carefully:


A brief update

ralf-rottmann-rounded-borderMy loyal readers have noticed that my updates here at 24100.net slowed down a bit over the last couple of months. My last post is well over a month old. Here’s why:

1. Twitter kills the blogger star

There’s no doubt that we are headed to the real-time web. More capable  mobile devices, a general trend towards mobility and the rise of social networks are rapidly adding new ways to communicate and stay connected to our lives. As in my professional life I’m dealing with communication technologies since more than a decade, it’s quite natural for me to try out all the latest and greatest. Read more →
