It's the battle of the social media titans. LOL, JK. Facebook unveiled some rather interesting stuff today if you like searching among your friends for plumbers or Grateful Dead fans (you probably know who, right?) and making calls to your Facebook friends. And on the other hand, former player MySpace is letting itself be used by Justin Timberlake to launch his new album. Heck, they're probably paying him. What a gig. So what else happened that wasn't about social media? Let's have a peek.
In case you haven't heard, MySpace is back and they've got Justin Timberlake! No, don't check the calendar, it's not the first of April and this is no joke. The "new" MySpace is here, but it remains to be seen what that will mean for users.
Everybody knows that Facebook is where it’s at these days when it comes to social networking, but you might not know it by looking at the explosive data growth of Google+, which a new report claims has grown faster than Twitter, MySpace and yes, Facebook did in their salad days.
Taptivate’s Friends app for iPhone and iPod touch is like that social butterfly everyone liked back in school. It attempts to be all things to all social network users, and succeeds admirably, allowing you to access Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and MySpace in one slick iOS-powered package.
