What Tools Were Super This Past Week?

  • PROskore — is a reputation scoring service with a professional focus. (example)
  • Opinionaided — is an “ask your social graph” app for iPhone, Android, and the web with a more personal bent than Quora.
  • WitStream — features clever tweets from funny folks on Twitter.

What Else Was Super?

  • NASA reached 20,000 followers on Google+ faster than it did on Twitter and Facebook.
  • Brands continue buzzing about the recently-launched Google+ Pages. But will Google+ users pay any attention?
  • Over one million people have grown a moustache during the month of November to support Movember, raising awareness of men’s health and cancer.
  • Triberr users previously accustomed to the service’s wonderful auto-posting to Twitter are now having to get accustomed to logging into Triberr regularly and posting manually instead. Okay, that’s not so super, but it’s true.

What Super Stuff Happened To You?

  • I started a week-long series of toy photos centered around the classic superhero team the Metal Men.
  • After spending some time with the Twitter Activity and @username tabs, I’ve concluded the usefulness of the former is a bit dubious, but the latter is a great way to keep track of your mentions, retweets, etc.

What Will Be Super Next Week?

  • You tell me!
  • Don’t forget that you can follow these roundups each week via email if you like.
