Google+ Suggested Users list

Google+ Suggested Users list just in. Create your own list, get followers!

Google+, the Social Network by Google just introduced its Suggested Users list on Saturday. Yes its the same list which you would have seen on Twitter and Facebook. Apparently this list something more different and is based on a slightly new idea.

Google+ implements a Suggested Users list

Bradley Horowitz, one of the minds behind Google+, tweeted that the list based on the no. of Twitter followers you have. According to his tweet, if you have 100K or more followers on Twitter you might be the next face on Google+’s Suggested Users list. The list is not just an imitation of Twitter’s Who to Follow list, where the Popular get more popular and the decent ones get left behind. Although many people are regarding this list creates a racial discrimination between the whites and blacks. Zennie Abraham, a blogger for San Francisco Chronicle says that the list fosters racial sterotypes.

According to a quote on PCWorld, Zennie says

“The Google Suggested User List reads like the typical San Francisco Bay Area tech firm’s view of the World: most of the ‘interesting and famous people’ are white, and if they’re black, they’re male rappers or athletes. Hello, Snoop Dog, Chamillionaire, 50 Cent, Dwight Howard, and Floyd Mayweather!”

As indecent as this idea sounds. Bradley tells us, that was not the way the list was meant to be categorised. He says the list is built on the theory “Top content Tops the list” i.e. the person who shares genuine and informative content on his profile automatically gains a rank up on the list.

According to an excerpt on the Huffington,

In order to retain a position on the list, a user will need to continue creating compelling content. But we should probably allow for folks to take an occasional vacation without concern about their rank dropping, taking a small trip to a beach house from twiddy rentals, is not like it has to be out of the conuntry […] No one gets on the list “automatically.” But again, in the early days, we do want to make it easy for users to connect with people they might find compelling. If they prove not to be, justice will be served, and all will be right in the world.

If you already have a profile on Google+, creating your own list should be pretty easy. Get Started over here.

Find whom to add on Google+

How much fuzz this Google+ Suggested Users list will create in the Social Media market is unknown. I for one think that this list will be a big hit as it allows everyone to compete for a rank to top the list.

So what do you think about this list? Drop a comment and let us know! And if you own a face on this list please don’t forget to tell us.

2009 – A look at the Newsmakers

As 2009 is drawing to a close, its time to sit back & recollect all the events that occured in this year. There were highs as well as lows, we had some people reach the pinnacle of fame and we also others who brought us shame. The following is a list of people/ events that grabbed the headlines in 2009.

1) Barack Obama – America’s first African-American President:

From being an America’s first African-American president to winning the 2009 Nobel prize for peace, it was certainly a memorable year for Obama.

2) A R Rahman – Jai Ho! :

The Oscar was just another feather-in-the-cap for this musical genius. He made the world sit up and take notice of Indian cinema. Suddenly, “Jai Ho” became the anthem of the nation. And that’s not all! Later this year he was awarded an Honorary Fellowship of London’s Trinity College of Music, one of the most prestigious distinctions that any musician can ask for.

3) Manmohan Singh – Singh is King!

Opinion polls & exit polls had unanimously predicted a hung assembly. But Congress took the entire nation by surprise as it won the General Election 2009 by a convincing margin. And Manmohan Singh became the only PM after Jawarharlal Nehru to assume office for a second term.

4) The Satyam Fiasco – All but the truth!

In what can be termed as one of the worst corporate scandals in history, Chairman Ramalinga Raju confessed that the company’s accounts had been falsified. In a letter to the Stock exchnge, Raju admitted that he had overstated the company’s revenues & profits. After this revelation , Satyam’s shares plummeted to an all time low of 11.50 Rupees along with its reputation.

5) The Death of a rising star in Indian Politics

Y S Rajashekahar Reddy or YSR as he was popularly known, lead the Congress to a thumping victory in the AP assembly elections. He was touted as the next big thing in Indian politics but fate had it otherwise. On Sep 2, YSR’s helicopter lost contact with the air traffic controllers and he was found dead the following morning. His death came as a big shocker to the entire nation.

6) Twitter – Communication Redefined

The answer to one simple question in 140 characters introduced the concept of microblogging. So, we had Priyanka Chopra on one hand tweeting about her upcoming film and Shashi Tharoor on another taking a dig at Indian politics. This year truly belonged to Twitter!

7) Chandrayaan – A lunar leap for India

Amisdst reports of Chandrayaan’s failure, the discovery of presence of water came as a shot -in-the-arm for ISRO. India’s maiden moon mission was declared a huge success & was enough proof of ISRO’s capability & efficiency in space projects.

8 ) K R Chandrashekhar Rao – Battle for the states

Mr Rao strategy for gaining attention was simple. What began as a simple fast quickly gained fervour and soon it seemed like the TRS chief was at his death bed with doctors warning of dire consequences if he did not break his fast. Mr Rao’s fast-until-death literally shook the roots of the Indian government. And Chidambaram’s damage control of granting statehood to Telengana temporarily resolved the issue. But this led to a number of outfits demanding statehood for their territories.

9) Indian Cricket Team – At the pinnacle of glory

2009 was undoubtedly the best year for Indian Cricket. MS Dhoni took the Indian team to never – before heights. Having been ranked as the number 1 team in ODI, they further went on to create history as they also claimed the No 1 spot in Test Rankings. Our very own Sachin Tendulkar added yet another feather to his cap by scoring 30,000 in International cricket – the first by any player in the world.

10) The Silent Heroes

No one acknowledges them. No one appreciates them. Yet, they silently do their duty and protect millions of indians everyday. Im talking about the Indian police & military force. Its been a year after the 26/11 blasts. But we have gone through 2009 without a single terror incident. Thanks to them! They are the silent heroes of this year. Kudos to them!!
