Google Chat Integrates AIM

Over the next couple days, Google is going to get just a bit more powerful. The search engine giant will be integrating full AIM (AOL Instant Messenger) support in Google Chat. You will no longer have to sign in AIM or an AIM client (such as Trillian) to talk to the few buddies you have, who refuse to make the switch off AIM.

Users will be able to add their best friends straight from the AIM account or by adding their buddies through the Google Talk list. To add an AIM screenname to Google Talk, users will have to type the AIM screenname followed by “@aol.com.”

How To Use Social Media, Effectively

Jason Hiner from ZDNet wrote a compelling article on how we should use different social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. He argues that we should treat different social platforms much like we would treat our own kids. Rather than parenting each child in the exact same way, Hiner notes that it is often best to treat each kid a bit differently and adhere to their individual strengths and weaknesses. Same goes for Social, according to him. Social Media is powerful, it’s growing, it’s now. Rather than cross-posting in Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Foursquare, Hiner thinks it is best to post in such a way that is optimal for each social platform.
