I know you were all hoping for a Video but my cold has forced me to stay away from the camera. But I did wear my new, awesome shirt (below) so you do have some form of media today! Thanks Gini Dietrich for the link to the shirt.
My #1 highlight from this week isn’t exactly new news but since I did a blog post on Monday about this and they are not as well known as Pinterest I feel that it deserves another call out. Please meet SocialFlow, the first application I have ever known to take a scientific/mathematical approach to Social Media. But Jenny you can’t do that. Exactly. The crazy part, it works! Check them out at socialflow.com or the Video Blog I did with them:
#2 is “Google to launch third-party commenting platform to rival Facebook: via @TNW” Um….no, Google why don’t you stop trying to re-invent the wheel and come up with your own ideas. What was it you invented a couple years ago that made Gmail a social network? Yeah I don’t even remember the name, let’s move on. Oh wait Google Buzz, that’s right.
This obviously won’t hurt Facebook, and I doubt it will hurt WordPress either since you can build a whole website around WordPress but it could pose a threat for Disqus, since Google is tied into every aspect of our digital lives.
#3 is YOU! I want to dedicate my Follow Friday to all of you watching. Thank you for tweeting me at @engage121, commenting on the Engage121 Facebook “timeline” and for your overall support! I really appreciate you taking the time to let me get to know each of you. I’m looking forward to interacting with all of you more in the future.
Have a great weekend, see you next Friday!
