Happy Queens Birthday all, hope everyone had a nice and enjoyable long weekend. So without further adue let’s get into this week’s wrap up. This week we saw Twitter making quite a buzz online especially with their revamped Twitter search which allows a user to not only search for tweets but those tweets are accompanied by images and also videos. Another buzz from Twitter is Twitter photo, which we saw little snippets from Twitter employees showing off the feature, this is not all positive especially to third party developers as this is seen by many as cutthroat towards those who have helped Twitter especially with photo sharing and one of them who is the recipient of this is Twitpic.
Google +1 [plus one] officially went live this week to the whole entire web. In the last few weeks we saw Google release the plus one button on it’s google searches but this time around they have released it to publishers so in essence it’s Google’s version of Facebook’s like. The take up by international online publication like your Techcrunch, The Huffington Post are huge at the moment, but this brings back memories of Google Buzz. Currently the feature only shares among your google contacts which are limiting, only time will tell if Twitter or other social networks contact will be implemented, if they want to seriously compete with Facebook “Like”.
