JD’s Super Social Media Weekly Roundup for Monday, September 5Tue, Sep 6, 2011
I was out sick last Monday, so this week is twice the fun.
What Tools Were Super This Past Week?
- RoboHash — creates unique images of robots/aliens/monsters/whatever from your text. (example of “jdhancock”)
- Tweet Grader — provides stats about your use of Twitter, including how long you’ve been tweeting. (example)
- Memolane — is a timeline of your online life. (example)
- Nike+ — is Nike’s online service for runners, providing maps, stats, and social networking.
What Else Was Super?
- Buffer announced it would be adding support for Facebook.
- Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman of Google, said Google+ was an identity service and those who don’t want to reveal their real name should not use it.
- Twitter rolled out user galleries, which shows images you’ve tweeted.
- Facebook shut down Facebook Places.
- I passed 7,000 tweets. Is this an achievement, or do I just share too much?
- PeerIndex said I talk about marketing a lot. Do I?
- My restaurant received its first positive review on Yelp, which is remarkable since I don’t have a restaurant.
- Facebook blocked me and several friends from posting this YouTube video because it was “abusive.” What do you think?
