What Tools Were Super This Past Week?

  • commonred — helps you to build professional relationships with people who have common interests. (example)
  • PressKing — offers organizations press release assistance, media monitoring, and domain tracking in tiered levels starting at “free.”
  • CSS3 Rainbow Dividers — allows bloggers to recreate obnoxious animated GIFs of the late 90’s using modern standards.
  • Booshaka — offers Facebook page managers a new application to create and manage a team of “superfans.”
  • Shuush — is a service that shrinks the font size of frequent tweeters and enlarges updates from infrequent tweeters.

What Else Was Super?

  • Buffer reached an amazing milestone: one million tweets queued.
  • Flickr launched their “geofences” feature, a new way to provide a level of privacy with geotagging.
  • Salesforce added realtime chat, screen sharing, and groups to Chatter, their existing social business feature.
  • comScore reported that Tumblr topped 13 million uniques in the United States in July.

What Super Stuff Happened To You?

  • I was invited to the wonderful “Positively Social” tribe on Triberr by chief Michael Q. Todd. The tribe members have been super nice and welcoming to me. Thank you, Michael and the rest of the tribe!
  • I discovered Nike+, a service for avid runners to record their runs, share maps, and challenge friends.

What Will Be Super Next Week?

  • The silly contest from About.me to put someone’s head on a Times Square billboard ends on September 20, but you can still vote for me every day until then! It’s all in good fun.
