Formspring Pushes SMS Feature

Formspring just released its SMS feature. Are you now ready to answer your first on-the-go question?

The popular social Q&A app, Formspring, releases its SMS feature, giving its users a quick and simple way to stay connected while on-the-go. Users can enable the SMS feature through their Formspring settings. When the new feature is turned on, users will receive SMS alerts to ask or respond to inquiries, or send out questions to their social networking account using a simple list of commands.

As the first step in entering the mobile battle ground, Formspring took the smartest way to begin with SMS. It has been suggested that a lot of Formspring users are in a younger demographic, and they may not be the rich and smartphone owner type of population. Formspring CEO, Ade Olonoh, stated that SMS is just the beginning. Does that mean that the company is getting ready to move into mobile sphere? What do you think?

The service is free of charge, and is currently available in the US only. But it should be changing in the coming days.

Facebook and Skype Partnerrship

Facebook and Skype is going hand in hand anytime soon. With this integration, we can't wait to try it.

Facebook and Skype are planning to connect their networks and accounts. ATD was able to provide a screenshot showing the new features in action. Once you open your Skype with Facebook you can send SMS, chat or call your Facebook friends directly from Skype. You can also log in to Skype with your Facebook credits.

The newest features will go live on Skype 5.0 when the new version goes out of beta in a couple of weeks.

It’s quite a logical step for both ends. Facebook’s chat is limited compared to what Google Talk does, with integration from Gmail, and offers voice and video chat capabilities. Making new ways to communicate with your Facebook contacts is one of Facebook’s main goals. Skype is extending a hand to Facebook with its 500+ million users.

If this will be happening anytime soon, I’m sure Skype and Facebook users will benefit much here. See the sneak peek after the skip.

The Fast Way to Follow Twitter Users, Without Being One

Written on August 11, 2010 by Rudfer Tyron

Hear this, non-tweeting people who consume chunks of other people's tweets! Twitter will whet your appetite with yet another brand-new feature called "Fast Follow".

“Fast Follow” allows non-Twitter users (should be US-based, as of now) to check out tweets via text messages. To use this feature, just text “follow [username]” to 40404–an assigned shortcode for Twitter. You will now receive the user’s microblogs in SMS.

This seems to be a parallel growth strategy–we are thinking now of the ad platforms that Twitter is also rolling out to its developers–that includes advertising. The social media company anticipates non-users to “Try it out the next time you see a Twitter @username at a restaurant or store, on a billboard or on TV, or if you hear one mentioned on the radio.”

This SMS-alert type Twitter feature looks simple, yet it helps inactive users to stay up-to-date with their favorite users’ tweets without actually logging into an account.
