Biggest news in social media today — Facebook + Friendfeed, and a little about Wowd)

If you haven’t heard/read (and you don’t follow my tweets — georgiawebgurl@twitter), Friendfeed has been bought by Facebook. Read about it here and here. On another note, I asked for an invite for Wowd. I am interested to see how this will differ from StumbleUpon. Both seem to be in the popularity contest site recommendation field, but Wowd seems to be actually building a search ...

Twitter, facebook, and real time info in the face of tragedy

I’m not going to spend alot of time talking about the Athens shooting tragedy (plenty elsewhere) but I do want to comment on one thing that I found interesting. Before most of the info hit the news, very accurate accounts were going up on twitter and facebook. Additionally, when the license plate number was released as part of the manhunt (personhunt?) effort, that info quickly ...

However, I am really interested in the use of social networking in political campaigns, ...

Elections, social networking & the technology revolution

This election saw both political parties building strong web presences and utilizing social networking sites (and some mobile, too!) Candidates and their supporters actively participating in facebook, twitter, myspace and other social networking sites: advertising, building networks, and well… campaigning! Although I’m not particularly fond of the term web2.0 (what happens when we get to web20.0?), there is no doubt that the information/technological revolution has ...

twitting a twebinar

So, I’m in the middle of a twebinar called Game Changing Moves: Who Really Owns Your Brand?Anyhow, so it’s a webinar with a twitter element thrown in and I am taking a break. The topic is interesting (branding in the web2.0+ world), but I think this might be more multitasking than my brain can handle. I’m having a hard time watching the video feed, listening ...
