A. Well…not for YOU, but possibly for AIDS victims in Africa and India. Yes, I will explain…
Raise your hand if you’d rather tweet than talk to someone on the phone, getting your ear hot and possibly getting a cramp from holding your cell phone in place with your shoulder. Yeah, me too.

For those who know Hootsuite you already know that they have made all their iphone apps free this month. You probably ALSO have heard rumors that there is an iPad app, although it’s not available for download just yet. So I’m guessing that’s coming in the next few weeks. For those of you who don’t know about Hootsuite, let me take this opportunity to fill you in a bit.

The debate is on and many businesses are finding it necessary to formulate policies to monitor and control the rampant use of social media websites during the work day.
Part of the issue is whether or not employees are using social media sites to enhance the company or are they on these sites wasting time and costing the company money in lost production.

Today the WebP image format was introduced by Google which will provide smaller image files for file sharing.
This new image format, WebP will be able to produce image files 39% smaller than other formats currently online. This frees up a huge load off of everyday server use since about 65% of content requested online are images.
This should make loading pages while web browsing a snap, even if you are on using your mobile device to surf the web.

This week, they launched a new new feature called People Recommendations that can be found in Bing Social (as you might suspect this is the section where Bing focuses on social media results).

TechCrunch broke the news last night of another Google purchase of a little company called Slide. Slide just so happens to be a manufacturer of social apps for sites like Facebook, Bebo, Friendster, MySpace and even Orkut, based in San Francisco. With Slide providing popular social applications like Rock Riot and Super Poke, to name a few, it is easy to see why Google would see them as such an asset.
