Just when people get used to Facebook’s latest round of changes and updates, there’s always another one around the corner. This time it’s the introduction of a new social media metric, tentatively titled “People Talking About.” As the name suggests, it keeps track of what Facebook users are talking about online. Through the Page Insights analytics tool, user “likes,” comments and posts will be measured to generate an analysis of user-initiated activity related to a particular page.

Mashable’s Todd Wasserman explains, “The idea is that users will understand a Page with a high People Talking About rating is one that has compelling content. Likewise, content creators will be motivated to make their Pages more comment-worthy….

“Other metrics, which are designed for administrators of brand and media Pages, include ‘Likes,’ ‘Friends of Fans’ and ‘Weekly Total Reach.’ While ‘Likes’ is self-explanatory, Friends of Fans is the actual number of friends your fans have, and weekly total reach is designed to be an accurate assessment of how many total people have posted something about your Page, how many news organizations (within Facebook) have referenced it and how much viral distribution elements of your Page has gotten.”

    I believe he will find the Amyr. They iklely know him. Much speculation is hovering around which people in the story are Amyr and/or Chandrian.I’ve always been suspicious of Master Lorren (Amyr?). He steers Kvothe clear of the Chandrian right away, plus he has that ultra calm steady way. Some think Elodin is Amyr but I am skeptical. Also, aren’t there two kinds of Amyr? The first ones and then the later zealots? Which ones will he find?There are lots of ideas about the Ctheah, like the man who stole the moon is trapped inside, etc.I’m not feeling that this is heading toward a happy ending based on his comments to Bast. I really think that the trilogy will be Kvothe telling the story of his life up until this point but another thing to think about is why is he doing it? Cause death is imminent? Why? I think Kvothe opens the doors/box and something gets out. He’s hiding out but why? We don’t know yet! He kills a king I think that may have something to do with Auri. If something bad happens to Auri, he will go after them in a rage. Some speculation is that Ambrose becomes king. I hope not!This post is a potpourri of various thoughts. Not particulary thorough.What names were you referring to when you mentioned etymology the ones the namers know? I’m unclear on this.
