There’s a new Google social media toy with which we can all tinker.
Google has launched Google Spaces.  From all indication, it appears to be a combination of Google Plus, which basically has fallen on tough times lately, Google communities (part of Google+), Google Collections and Reddit.

 I wrote a post about it on my own brand-new Google Spaces site which details how I feel about it and what my concerns are, at this time. The post also provides useful information about spaces.
I am looking at this new tool from two perspectives—how will it help small businesses and does it have room in the political space.
I manage a Facebook Group called Louisiana Politics, which has a strong presence in that own particular Facebook space, so, how could it assist me with that group?  Are there any other features that show promise?


To answer how Spaces can be used in business and even politics, here is a video I have just created that showcases how Google Spaces works.  


Join my Google Spaces as I would love to get your feedback and input.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
