Summize Listens to Conversations and Sentiment on Twitter

Just a bit ago, I wrote a post covering my favorite tools for monitoring conversations on Twitter. I’d like to add one more to the bunch. Recently launched Summize is similar to TweetScan, but also unique in its capabilities and in turn, changes how we may view Twitter search. At the very minimum, it’s a basic search tool that operates similar to how you would naturally search in Yahoo or Google. Both tools bring Twitter alive and expose the layers…

Social Media Releases In Action

I recently ran “The Definitive Guide to Social Media Releases,” which has received some great feedback. Thank you everyone! Even though it’s a blog post, it doesn’t mean that its shelf life is merely limited to the brief period of time in between new posts. I’d like it to live on and evolve over time as we learn more about SMRs. And, you’re a big part of that evolution. I was planning on letting that post sit up there for…

The Definitive Guide to Social Media Releases

The Social Media Release is back in the spotlight once again and its sparking conversations, inspiring experiments, and raising confusion along the way. This time, intent and distribution take center stage. Good friends Todd Defren and Christopher Lynn took the time to research how wire services are positioning their products for Social Media. Todd posted the results here. Great work guys! Basically, when you call your local representative, you’re presented with the following capabilities. Now, whether these stats are accurate,…

Yahoo’s New Social Network Mashes Facebook with Myspace

I received an invitation from Lee Oden to jump into Yahoo’s new Mash social network and while I reserve a more in depth post for later, I definitely wanted to take a moment to share some initial reactions and assessments. First, Y! Mash is cute. Yes, cute. It’s more related to Myspace than Facebook, so it’s definitely not the leading contender to channel a river of relevance or act as the premier online hub for your personal brand – at…

This Thursday, WebGuild’s Annual Conference – Web 2.0, The New Web

I’m going through my calendar of upcoming events, and it looks like I’ll have time to make it to the WebGuild 2006 Annual Conference: Web 2.0 – The New Web. Since I am not invited to O’Reily’s Web 2.0 conference (like the rest of us), I’ve decided to attend the WebGuild event, especially since much of the content and speaker line-up is similar – not to mention the vast contrast in price, $239 compared to roughly $3,200. This event is…

del.icio.us Birthday Bash!

Written by Alison McNeill Photo Credit: Scott Beale / Laughing Squid . Last night I attended the del.icio.us birthday bash at the monstrous Yahoo headquarters, and yes, it was quite delicious! This was very different from previous events I have gone to in that it was bigger, more relaxed and there was tons of delicious food! Sorry, I’ll try to use a different adjective for the rest of the article. Joshua Schachter, Photo Credit: Jeremiah Owyang My colleague and I,…

More Web 2.0 Exit Strategy Badges

Marco Rosella recently ran a post on Web 2.0 exit strategy badges and prepping for the upcoming Web 2.0 Conference in San Francisco. I also covered it and offered a few more suggestions. Well, the creativity never stops I guess, so I’m publishing a few more ideas to complement Marco’s initial line-up of exit badges. I still say that we should get some of these made and pass them around at all of the events. In fact, let’s get these…

Trexy Blazes the Search Trail

I missed Trexy at the recent SES show in San Jose. Co-founder Megan Hamilton was persistent, yet extremely polite, so I promised I’d follow through on a post. Trexy was started by brother and sister team , Nigel and Megan Hamilton. They grew up in Australia and are now living in London. They have been on a mission for the last four years to create the best search engine possible. With only sweat capital to spend, they rolled up their…
