Thanks Luna Metrics for creating the best Social Media Cheat Sheet, EVER!!
Over a week ago, Google announced that they’ll be killing off its Reader application. Sad to see it go but in the past 6 months, I hadn’t been using it all that much.
Now, Google is launching a new mobile app called Google Keep to help ‘keep’ track of all your notes, ideas, and to-do lists. You can upload photos, or record an audio memo, etc. I hope this can sync with my Google calendar. It must, right? Because, our to-do lists needs a DEADLINE. Well, I wouldn’t know because the Keep app is available on Android. I have an iPhone. So, I await for Google to share its Google-licious love across all Operating Systems.
Here’s a video to check out:
Fascinating, how President Obama utilized his twitter account to tweet the key quotes. You can imagine that these tweets got retweeted and favorated. Here’s the states as of 10:42amPST on January 21st, 2013.

Maybe Justin Timeberlake’s six year music hiatus should have waited an extra day before officially launching the new MySpace. Today, the world of social networking sites were excited to launch the latest…
1) Facebook has announced a new feature called “Graph Search.” For many years, there has been a ‘strong’ rumor that Facebook would be entering the world of search to compete with giants like Google and Microsoft’s Bing. The new design is pretty impressive. Let’s say you are in a new city and looking for a restaurant suggestion. You can type in ‘restaurant’ into the graph search and the results that come up reflects the interests of what your friends have posted about the restaurants in the area you are located. The data ranges from likes collected on a certain restaurant’s Business Facebook page, pictures uploaded and geo-located, as well as the number of restaurant ‘check-ins’. Soon, they will integrate data from Instagram profiles, Foursquare, Rdo, etc. Which would provide a more accurate search result. I believe that Facebook’s “Graph Search” is a game-changer for search and finding recommendations on pretty much anything – restaurants, travels, hotel, etc.
Here’s a hands-on look at the new feature done by The Verge:
2) MySpace has officially launched its new re-design. Justin Timberlake is an investor of the new MySpace, hence the promotion of his new single. For those of you who have never heard of MySpace, it’s a social networking service that focuses on music and discovering new recommendations via one’s friends list. Between 2005 and 2008, the site was overwhelmingly popular. By late 2008, MySpace began to lose its cool, as Facebook started to dominate the social network arena.
The new MySpace continues to focus on music – but has a sleeker, cleaner and sexier look than the old version. Have you signed up for an account?
