Google vs. Yahoo: Choose Your Side

Search engine giants have had quite a summer thus far. While Yahoo has been busy unveiling its mobile-specific web browser Yahoo Axis, and publicly announcing that it was moving back to its original roots in ad-based strategies, Google – it seems – has taken the approach of: ‘let’s buy everything we can and make it ours.’ Read more here: Google vs. Yahoo: Choose Your Side

Facebook announces “Interest Lists”

This entry was posted on by .

 

Looks like Facebook decided to borrow an idea from Twitter and Pinterest as it introduced its idea of “Interest Lists” today, that you create by incorporating posts from pages and public figures under a designated label. Once you’ve created your ‘Interest Lists’ you have the ability to allow other Facebooker’s to subscribe to them or keep them private.

Facebook Software Engineer Eric Faller said:

Essentially the interest lists can help you turn Facebook into your own personalized newspaper based on categories and topics that you list.

Will you Create or Subscribe to an Interest List?

Facebook will be rolling out with the Interest List in the coming week but if you want to start playing with this feature visit the Interest List link and create your own or subscribe to some great lists!

Curious who’s Unfriended you on Facebook? Sure you are!

This entry was posted on by .

Whether you admit it or not, once you’ve actually realized that your friend count number has dropped, you can’t help but wonder, who just left your friends list? Well, there is actually a way to figure that out now with just a few simple steps.

Depending on what browser you’re using will determine the plug-in/extension you will need to download- We will try to make this as simple as possible for you!

Chrome Users |
The Unfriend Finder can be found on Userscripts.org. If you’re using Chrome, it will install automatically.

Be sure to click the INSTALL button located in the top right corner

FireFox Users |
Firefox users will have to first install the Greasemonkey add-on.

Once you’ve downloaded the appropriate plug-in/extension you will now see two new features in Facebook. There will be an “Unfriends” tab on the top-right of your screen and an “Unfriends” option in your “Favorites” list. You will received a red number notification, like that of when you received friends requests but not notifying you of who’s unfriended you. It will also give you a bit more detail, to the date and time they actually unfriended you. A couple other sweet features they’ve added, in this area are those people who have deactivated and activated their accounts, and those friend requests that may be pending or ignored that you’ve sent.

Do you think Facebook should show this information? Or, would you rather not know?

Google Search Just kicked it up a notch with “Search Plus Your World”

This entry was posted on by .

Google search received one of its biggest updates in a decade yesterday. Essentially Google has made it pretty much mandatory for any and all individuals as well as companies to get a Google+ account to gain any search accreditation. Google+ will be a part of everything Google does on the web and mobile, and being that Google is the number one search engine; you’d be silly not to jump on this growing band wagon.

This Google+ infused approach assumes personal connections as well as relevance. Any links shared by your Google+ connections are given more accreditation and will show up in the first page of web search results with the individuals profile avatar on the left. You will also be able to see, based on keyword relevance, Google+ posts. To put in terms you can easily understand, Google indexes the Google+ posts just like every other page, but they will show up in your search if the individual/poster is connected to you via the Google+ network. Images posted to Google+ will also show up in web and image search results, again, only to searchers who are connected to the originating person who posted the photo being searched. Lastly, like Facebook, in the search bar you will be able to ‘Google’ specific people who have a Google+ network profiles and see content from people you are connected to.

Jack Menzel, Google’s web search product management director, mentioned in an interview with VentureBeat, “Everything we show you, we label that very clearly and explain why that’s showing up.”

The social search integrations, which Google is calling “search plus your world,” can be toggled on and off by using the “person” and “world” icons in the top right corner of search results, basically allowing you to view or hide your personal search results from the Google search.

Next you may notice the promoted Google+ accounts. On the right side of the results page, you will see featured profiles and pages, along with a link reading, “learn how you could appear here too.” Though these featured accounts are currently algorithmically determined, we can see these being direct competition with Facebook’s social ads, which is HUGE! Facebook has been banking some pretty amazing revenue from their geo-targeted ads based on social graph data. With Google+, Google is on its way to building a powerhouse of even more rich social graph data to pull even more direct and specific social ad marketing.

Menzel told VentureBeat, “The more information you have associated with your Google+ profile, the better it gets. For this launch, we’re just talking about web search and image search,” said Menzel, “but I wouldn’t rule out improvements to those other products.”

Google+ results are coming today to web search, and although the company can’t talk timelines for future rollouts, we fully expect to see Google+ results in Google News, Google Maps, Google Shopping and other search properties soon.

Google+ is not just a social network; it’s the wave of a personalized search. Good or bad? What do you think? Share your comments on Google+ and personalized search below…

Facebook Timeline coming Sept. 29th (or now)

This entry was posted on by .

I know there is bound to be an uproar about this whole ‘Facebook Timeline’ but quite frankly I love it… so many unique features and ‘featured’ areas to share with friends and family. And activity amongst your friends just got that much easier to filter out.

Facebook Timeline is what you’d call a recap of everything that has EVER happened in your Facebook lifespan. It’s pretty much your personal story book of your life that you’ve helped pretty much document online over the course of your relationship with Facebook.

Well if you’re antsy, there’s steps below on how to get the new Facebook Timeline profile, otherwise just wait it out, everyone will have it come September 29th.

You too can get the new profile before it’s official release … and it takes just about 5minutes

Facebook Changes News Feed and gives us a real-time ticker

This entry was posted on by .

You may have noticed some changes when you logged into Facebook this morning and a stream of angry status updates about the changes as well. Here’s a lil run down of the changes and how to understand what’s happening on Facebook today.

 


News Feed: See What Matters at the Top

One of the new changes is the news feed. “News Feed will act more like your own personal newspaper,” Facebook says in a blog post. Facebook has removed “Top Stories and Most Recent” links on the top of the News Feed and replaced it with a feed that adjusts content based on the last time you checked it. If you haven’t been on Facebook for a few days it will pull the top stories from your network. If you’re a more frequent visitor of Facebook, your News Feed will act on the most recent content in chronological order. Facebook has also given the ability to mark and unmark a “Top Story” in your news feed. Photos are also going to be a lot larger while you’re scrolling through as well.

 


Ticker: Join Friends in Real-Time
The second change to take affect is the real-time ticker on the right side of the page. Sometimes there’s a lag with the “News Feed” and depending on how many friends you have things can get missed or overlooked. “Ticker shows you the same stuff you were already seeing on Facebook, but it brings your conversations to life by displaying updates instantaneously. Now when a friend comments, asks a question or shares something like a check in, you’ll be able to join the conversation right away. Click on anything in ticker to see the full story and chime in – without losing your place”, says Facebook.

 


Birthday Wishes: All in one spot
Sending Birthday wishes just got a lil easier with less steps. Now when you see the individuals who are celebrating their birthday on the right side of your “News Feed” you will be able to now send them a wish without visiting their page. You can now send everyone a birthday wish by simply click on the birthdays icon and a pop up will reveal itself with an option to input a message right there for each individual. You can keep track of who you’ve already wished a happy birthday and whom is still needing some birthday love!

 

There are definitely a lot more changes to come and minor tweaks happening all the time on Facebook but hope this clears up a little about what’s happened with Facebook today!

Facebook Navigation Bar is now locked in place

This entry was posted on by .

Late last night, Facebook made a subtle change to the navigation bar at the top, it is now locked in place. What does this mean? You now have a view of notifications at all times. Sure you get the little pop up bubble on the bottom left hand corner but now you will see the friend requests, messages, and notifications at all times in the navigation bar.

Look familiar? You guessed it! Both Twitter and Google+ have implemented this subtle improvement to their sites as well over the course of the last month. For anyone who’s ever tried to catch up on News Feed updates and found themselves pages below the navigation bar when they received a notification, this is a welcome change. No more losing your place to find out you only got invited to an event you really don’t want to attend anyway.

Rent movies from Facebook, sure you can

This entry was posted on by .

Looks like things just got a little sweeter for Facebook. With all the changes this week who knew, this one was coming? Miramax is partnering with Facebook to launch an app to allow users to rent movies directly from Facebook.It’s still in the young beginning stages, so it’s limited to 20 titles for the U.S. but will open up more titles in time.
Access will include computer, t.v., smartphone and other platforms in which you’re able to access Facebook.

Rentals will cost about 30 Facebook credits, which in real money amounts to $3. Once you’ve rented the movie you will have 48 hours to finish the movie. Now keep in mind the app is still in beta but should be available immediately.

I personally think $3 is still a bit pricey per a rental, but Facebook is truly turning into your one stop shop. If they could iron out the prices to be a lil more competitively cheaper, why would you go anywhere else?
