Facebook needs to emulate a lot of twitter and really soon. Keep looking here. Remember fb needs to turn into profit in some time. Facebook Needs Its Own Version of the Twitter Retweet http://bit.ly/2lPdC1via @tweetmeme
Twitter is one of the most viral platforms on the social web. One link can be spread to millions of people in a matter of minutes. Perhaps the primary reason for this is the Twitter retweet (or “RT”), which provides Twitter users..
Despite the personable Facebook’s massive lead, the world of its ‘followers’ looked on as Facebook launched status updates in the style of twitter a few months back, time now is they are planning to roll the same back, but then that could be just a rumor
Check out foller.me here. It is doing pretty well since it was featured on twitterone last week http://tr.im/puCv and let me know how that usability would come from facebook pages ( apart from targeted marketing) http://tr.im/puFx
Point one(1/800): Facebook is working out trying to make its linkers a success with the one and only ‘Retweet’ Personally, I would use the same without the ‘RT’ as long as I could credit the dude whose effort brought me the idea/url to be RT’d
Facebook vs Twitter series 3/800: And then the integrators come in, mashing everyone from everywhere, ALL MLB teams batting at the same time
Flock 2.5 social web browser adds more Facebook and Twitter features
by Brad Linder May 19th 2009
Flock is a web browser that’s based on Mozilla. But what really makes it stand out is the integration with social networking services including Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Flickr, and YouTube. Flock 2.5 is out today, and it adds enhanced features for Twitter and Facebook, including:
• Read Twitter replies (err… @mentions) in the Flock sidebar
• Save Twitter searches
• Take actions like replying or clicking on Twitter links from the sidebar
• Use Facebook chat from any web page
• Drag and drop web content into the Facebook chat box to share it
There’s also a new feature called FlockCast so that when you post a tweet, set your MySpace status, write a blog post, or upload pictures to Flickr, you can click a button to automatically post those actions to Facebook as well.

Thus, we now have tumblr, post(erous), flock and the shorteners supporting twitter and facebook seemingly
We are probably leaving behind the reddits and the stumbleupons! you digg?
Maybe, we are going to make all of them redundant and just use facebook. How? I don’t see that happening in the long distant future either.
Anyway, it is time for the net users to enjoy sharing and transacting business on the new age platforms and the rest of us, avoiding office for these silly geezers…(i know, plain slander!)
BTW, this time I am neither in Chicago or in LA, enjoying back home!
