I’ve let another week slip by without a Friday 5, but fear not I’m back again this week and ready to roll. I had a good excuse. I spent a week on the West coast visiting the ARMA 2010 conference–that’s records managers and governance folks– and Enterprise 2.0 Conference in Santa Clara. I was also hard at work on an up coming article for EContent Magazine on the connection between content and location.
While I was away, Facebook came up with a new messaging system. Doesn’t it seem like they have a new announcement every week? They are beginning to remind of me of Google in more ways than one. Speaking of Google, they quietly released a new service, much like Yelp, that lets you rate local businesses. I will try to post something on it next week. Then there a couple of upstarts: Path, the so-called personal social network and RockMelt, the new socially aware browser.
Anyway, here’s this week’s Friday 5:
- Facebook’s New Messaging System Explained [VIDEO] – Mashable.
- RockMelt promises Facebook-linked web browsing on Chromium – Electronista.
- Google Hotpot: Social Layers Or Reinforced Box? – Outspoken Media.
- How to Control Your Privacy With Foursquare and Other Geoloaction Services – Social Media Examiner.
- Path — Introducing The Personal Network – Path Blog.
