FORTUNE -- It may be coincidence that the decline of newspapers has corresponded with the rise of social media. Or maybe not.
The two industries are very different, of course: One focuses its lens on the public events that change our world; the other is concerned largely with the personal stuff that happens behind MOREAug 8, 2013 10:45 AM ET

Well, temporarily anyway. The goal? To see what I've gained (and lost) in the last decade.
FORTUNE -- I'm signing off Facebook for the month of August. And Twitter. And Instagram. And LinkedIn, Pinterest, & MessageMe. If you'd like to reach me before September, please send an email to my @fortune address or better yet, call me. I suspect I'll have a bit more time than usual to call you back.

By Heather Muse, editor
FORTUNE -- In some ways, it seems like the death of Google Reader unleashed a hydra -- destroy one RSS reader, and several pop up in its place: namely Feedly, AOL Reader and Digg Reader, among others.
As my colleague Ryan Bradley points out, the MOREJul 1, 2013 11:25 AM ET
One year later, it looks that way.
FORTUNE -- It's been one year since Microsoft announced it was acquiring Yammer, a social networking tool for companies, for a whopping $1.2 billion. The plan? Use Yammer's software as a social layer across Microsoft's products and keep the smaller, San Francisco-based company as independent as possible.

FORTUNE -- Imagine an Olympic sport without any universal quantitative metrics. Thousands of hyper-competitive athletes competing furiously with each other, but only able to keep score by chatter at cocktail parties and compliments from their colleagues.
