After Much Chaos, Google+ Seems To Have Settled

Google+ caught the eye of the world even when the project wasn’t complete. Even though the users were limited to around 750 million, people wanted it like crazy.

Is Google’s social networking service better than its competitors? Or Do people want a change from their old social networks? The answer lies in the latter one. With Google+, users are getting the change they want.

Twitter Reaches 200 Million Daily Tweets

Twitter has just announced that the platform gets 200 million tweets per day from all over the world. Just a year ago, the company was ‘only’ getting 65 million tweets per day. This January? The company received 2 million tweets per day.

All this is happening faster than you can say “growth” and leaves you wondering where the company will be at later down the road. What do you think Twitter will be at by New Years 2012? Kind of frightening when you think about it.

FTC Approves Seven-Year Storage Of Social Media Data

The Federal Trade Commission approved background check companies to screen job applicants based on their Internet photos and postings. This means that any of your online activity, whether through Twitter, Facebook, blogs, etc. is “free game” for background check companies and your future employer to check out.

Maybe you think that all it takes is a few deactivations, a click here, a click there, and you’re ready to apply for that new summer internship? Unfortunately for some, Social Intelligence Corporation (a background check company) can keep your postings for up to seven years.

Microsoft, Facebook & Co. Support AT&T Merge

According to tmonews, Microsoft joined with Facebook and six other tech companies in a filing to the FCC in support for the AT&T and T-Mobile merger. Of those who support the acquisition include Yahoo, Oracle, Research In Motion, and VC firms Kleiner Perkins, Caufield & Byers, and Sequoia Partners.

Their main reason for voting “yay” was that the acquisition would help AT&T expand their network to serve a larger portion of America. I believe that rather than having everyone’s best interest, these corporations are only looking out for themselves.

Facebook Rolls Out Facial Recognition, Worldwide

Facebook is proud to announce that the social media giant now has integrated facial recognition in its online platform. This new system allows content to be match with faces for an easier way to tag photos. Although tagging is still done by your friends, the new facial recognition software detects the face and pushes it like an advertisement on the right hand side of your friends’ screen.

This new system allows for quick and efficient tagging for those moments where you wish you could tag but don’t feel like being stranded down to the computer all day.

Not only does this allow you to ‘like’ your favorite content for others to see but this also helps websites with traffic, ad value, etc.

So how does it work exactly when a bunch of your friends +1 their favorite material? The next time you search for something on Google, it will incorporate your friends opinions and beliefs in your web searches.

Twitter Gears Up To Launch Photo Sharing Service

Twitter has some exciting news for users around the world! The social media giant is geared up to launch its own photo-sharing service, due next week. All I can say is, beware Twitpic and Yfrog! Twitter is currently set on revealing the upcoming photo-sharing service at the D9 conference in California. Twitter’s CEO, Dick Costolo will formally introduced the new image sharing service on Wednesday.

Although current third party image sharing sites make their money through the advertisements displayed, it is uncertain how the new Twitter’s business model will work. Some expect the new service to work similar to Twing.com.

Twitter Creates Optimized Web App

Twitter has just announced a new version of twitter.com for mobile devices, worldwide. Twitter calls it a web app although it is actually a website. The “web app” was created to provide a high quality Twitter experience on high-end touchscreen devices, whether or not the device came packed with a Twitter app.

The company stated that this web app was specifically designed for smartphones and tablets that have more advanced browsers. Twitter also mentions that there are significant improvements that take advantage of today’s high-end mobile browsers such as touch gestures and a large screen.

Twitter Eyes Tweetdeck For $50 Million

According to social media sources, Twitter is on the verge of buying TweetDeck for $50 million. Analysts are expecting a cash and stock deal to close within the next ten days and to be one of Twitters largest acquisitions to date. Twitter itself is just under five years old, so relatively speaking, this is a huge purchase for the company. This will be a great addition to the Twitter organization because the company will now be able to incorporate Tweetdeck’s slick interface and enhanced capabilities.
