These days, it seems that we spend more time uploading and sharing photos to multiple websites than actually interacting with the people we're sharing with. That is, unless you get on board with an online service called Pixelpipe, which enables you to share content with multiple services.
There's no denying that Twitter's one of the easiest platforms for sharing your thoughts. As such, there are a flurry of featured-packed apps for both Mac and iOS that let you use Twitter to post your blurbs, share your photos, and let everyone know where you're hanging out. Here are five of our favorite Twitter clients.
There are social networks for everyone and everything. Whether you want to exploit colleagues for connections, take faux-retro pictures on your iPhone, or brag about how far you ran, there’s a network for that. In fact, social networks are so prevalent that the term has almost come to mean nothing at all. We decided it was time to take a look at some of the biggest contenders and see where they soar and where they sink.
Everyone rejoice! After months and months -- even years -- of waiting, Facebook is finally available for the iPad. While the app developers at Facebook could have easily just ported the iPhone app over to the iPad, they have done no such thing. Facebook for iPad provides users of the popular social networking site with a significant user interface update to the iPhone version. Here's a look at some of the most salient updates, from multi-tasking and multiple users to new and improved image galleries.
Now that the doors have swung wide open for any and all to join Google+, the company is stepping up their mobile app features to make it easier for members to connect with each other.

Not crazy about the changes made to Facebook this week? As it turns out, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. Mark Zuckerberg took the stage at the company’s F8 event on Thursday to unveil the company’s new direction, which includes a new way to display your life and plenty of music and video content yet to come.
Ding-dong, Deals –– Facebook’s Groupon competitor for finding nearby bargains -- is dead after just four months. (Don’t feel bad if you missed out…it was available in only five cities.) Deals is a rare misstep from a company that seems to get bad press only for occasional privacy-related dustups. Despite them, Facebook has done pretty well since launching in 2004. Here are five of the top ideas that have earned the House of Zuckerberg over 750 million users and one of the top spots in tech.
Remember when the internet didn't require you to press a button to tell it that you "liked" something? Back before the function became ubiquitous on social networking sites across the web, users would simply link back to a page or tell their friends about it. But not anymore. Now you've got to "like" something, or "share" it to one of your many other social networking sites for your friends to garner any interest. Well, Google's trying hard to jump on that same bandwagon with its release of the Google +1 button extension for Chrome.
Facebook is a lot of different things to more than 750 million people, but being a movie rental platform is not usually the first thing you hear about. But as more people embrace mobile devices and move streaming, the demand for "on-demand" is only going to heat up. And Facebook is not planning to sit on the sidelines.
