Facebook Holds an Intimate Gala

Written on October 05, 2010 by B Waldorf

Comments Off

At first we thought it's a victory party for the movie, The Social Network, but it's not. It's an intimate event that Facebook didn't bother elaborating what is it for. No hints, no clues. So we just made few quite good guesses.

It has been ages after Facebook launched a big stepping stone in the name of Places. They recently revamped the gaming focus nearly two weeks ago plus high-res for photos. An invitation unexpectedly appeared on our screens and it’s from Facebook. The date and time said Wednesday at 10 AM. No hints on why they are making a gala but we can always guess.

Few guesses include:

  • Places: The missing key features and campaigns that are needed to further develop the program
  • Credits: What more can we do about this credentials? How about the call and SMS features, Mark Zuckerberg?
  • Ipad: No there is no official Facebook for iPad app. Its been six whole months since iPad landed on our doorsteps but the official Facebook app is still nowhere to be seen.
  • Facebook Bar: They had announced this, a Meebo Bar clone. But still missing in action.
  • Facebook Phone: Okay, they’ve denied the phone ever existed. But rumors are still high.

iPad owners are the new Juliet of Shakespeare's infamous novel as MySpace releases its Music Romeo. Now you can watch music videos you not just like but also "love." And what's best is that it does not only deliver roses on your doorstep, it also offers you the latest trend in music.

MySpace launched an iPad app that is strikingly similar to Pandora Radio named Music Romeo. It’s a free application that uses a very simple discovery mechanism to offer a huge catalog of music videos to the iPad. How does it works? First, choose your type of music then pick a mood. After that, just sit back and relax because MySpace will choose the music videos for you. Once a video is done, Romeo will choose the next one that you might enjoy. The app includes a built-in controls for pause, skip, share and “Love.”

The Love button bookmarks your favorite video, so that you can watch more music flicks in case you can’t view others that feel otherwise. Music Romeo delivers a beautiful and customizable music video station with its simple, elegant and more than enough vids that can occupy you for hours. Romeo is also a dynamic app that scans social networks and blogs for currently trending music on the web. As a result, it puts on your doorstep music that you like and what’s hot on the internet.

If you already have Music Romeo on your iPad, post your reactions in the comments.

Flipboard Renders The Social Magazine Experience

Written on July 29, 2010 by Rudfer Tyron

An app that tweaks your social media experience has finally arrived to the iPad. Let me introduce to you the all-new app, Flipboard...

Infusing the elements of a motley cluster of social media sites and the unique browsing experience offered by magazines, Flipboard arrives as an all-new application to the iPad and dubs itself as the “world’s first social magazine.”

With its launching four days ago came the change of landscape in social media streaming. Now live feeds from Facebook and Twitter are laid out to imitate magazine contents: posts turn into articles, and multimedia into front-and-center. News from your favorite sources also appear on the interface. This experience is as simple as flipping the pages of your favorite glossy print. Flipboard picks and presents the most relevant stories for you.

Flipboard had two big announcements during its launch. First, the new app had a Series A round with Ashton Kutcher, Facebook co-creator Dustin Moskovitz, Twitter founder Jack Dorse, Index Ventures, The Chernin Group and KPCB that helped them raise up to $10.5 million.

The next big news was that it has acquired Ellerdale, “a real-time web intelligence startup”. Flipboard can utilize its semantic analysts technology, which can sort the feeds in order to arrive at the most relevant items that will show up on your screen. Co-founder Arthur van Hoff was made its CTO.

Watching your feeds pass by on your screen is definitely a way to go for Flipboard users. This app can now be purchased at the iPad store.
