Fri 5 for 10/15/10

by Ron on October 15, 2010

Another week passed by and Facebook and Google manage to dominate the social media news. First we had Facebook announce its relationship with Bing and its integration in Skype. These are hard relationships to ignore, but Google, not to be outdone here made two big announcements of its own: First all it gave Marissa Mayer was promoted and put in charge of location and local services, this is the same area covered by the Facebook-Bing deal.

Secondly Google announced monster third quarter earnings, and CEO Eric Schmidt made it clear that Google was going to be getting much more social too.

Let’s not forget that Microsoft also launched Windows Phone 7 this week too.

Without further adieu, this week’s Friday 5:
