For People who like Mail: Social Digest

Social Digest - A Digest Of Your Social Network

Many people are posting on Social Media, and there are many who don’t want to constantly follow everything live that is said by their friends. For them there is now . Social Digest makes it possible to get a full list of all the tweets send by your social group, whether it’s the public stream, DMs or lists – which I’m sure Scoble will like. It also lists the users who were active that day. It’s like having your Facebook wall in your mail, although Facebook support is in the pipeline.

There is also integration for people who want to follow what their friends are listening to on Last.FM. The other service they currently support is Hyves, but I doubt that they will limit their scope to only these services.

For the business users there are plans to make it possible to get digests over multiple Twitter accounts in one digest mail so business users can do the due diligence over their multiple accounts. And after showing them the wonderful features of DataSift they are looking into implementing a similar mark-up language to be able to extract data which can be flagged with in the Digest. And I see further potential for integration with DataSift.

I’m happy to say that as the twitter whale in the pre-alpha I helped them discover many faults with the algorithm and forced them to turn the Twitter API inside out to be able to do some of the requests.

They have plans for a 2011 launch.

Social Permissions for 2013

leave a comment »

Social Permissions fo 2013Last year I found myself overwhelmed by changes in the privacy settings in many of my most used Social Media applications. I decided then, what I’m going to tell you now: Just set everything to open, and don’t post stuff you don’t want on your??permanent??record online.If you are rather more lackadaisical to the issue of privacy you might want to try MyPermissions, which has an overview of all the settings.

Alternatively you could use PrivacyFix which can automate this for…

Crowdbooster Killing Freemium, Gives Free Alternatives
Crowdbooster??is killing there freemium model, according to Ricky Yean??this is because we started falling behind on our promise to give you the highest quality service and we hated it.??Naturally they don’t want to leave their free customers – who may be unlikely to ever pay – hanging. So they made a list of services where they can get their analytics fix without bogging down the system.https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AiA_xls996Kw…

Gather more foursquare Likes

leave a comment »

Gather more foursquare Likesfoursquare added a feature to allow people to like checkins without a 4sq account. Seeing the potential for abuse I tried to see whether I could like my own checkin, so I fired up a clean browser so I could try and like a checkin and I was unable to as it asked me to login.

Does it work for you?

Your best check-ins, now with more likes

Remember that time that barista made a foam art panda bear in your latte that looked exactly like a certain botched fresco and you took a picture with your check-in, and tweeted it, and blasted it out …
