Some recent news, reports, interesting articles about Social Media…
Let’s start with this fascinating report on how the Internet has grown since 2010.
Then, let’s move on to social networking sites news:
– Facebook has released new features: How to filter spam from your Facebook pages, really helpful tool to provide high quality content.
The rumors are apparently true — at an event which took place yesterday at Facebook HQ, Facebook revealed that it will, in fact, be launching a deals service for Facebook Places. Watch out, Foursquare.
Twitter: In a New York Times profile on Twitter co-founder Evan Williams, the company revealed stats: Twitter now has 175 million registered users, which is up from 145 million users in September. That means the startup added around 30 million users in just under two months. And Twitter has added 70 million users since April.
And then, let’s have a look at some countries news:
UK: the English Police train their new recruits in how to use Facebook and Twitter to gather information. Interesting modern policing to face apparently online crime growth.
UK (again…) : East London to become an officially sanctioned startup ‘hub’ for the UK. Seen on Techcrunch – London will be transformed into a “world-leading technology city to rival Silicon Valley” : Google will create an Innovation Hub in East London, a creative space for their researchers to come together with developers and academics. Facebook will create a permanent home in East London for their Developer Garage programme (currently the FDGL meets at TechHub, but interesting they are contemplating something ‘permanent’ whatever that means).
