Using the Zemanta Chrome Extension

Testing to write with zemanta chrome extension in gmail. I wonder if that could be useful when blogging or not?
It could be useful because I blog a lot by mail.

I used Zemanta quite much before when I was using Firefox.

I stopped using it when I switched to Chrome.

Zemanta is a pretty cool extension that recommends stuff while typing.

Zemanta helped me add links & pictures to this email. It can do it for you too.

Google Is Working On Letting Users Link Their Gmail And Google Apps Accounts

Google Is Working On Letting Users Link Their Gmail And Google Apps Accounts

Many people (including myself) have come to the conclusion that Gmail, with its threaded messages, spam filtering, and vast storage space, is one of the web’s best webmail providers. In fact, we like it so much that we use it for both our personal accounts and work accounts using Google Apps. But that also poses a problem: many of us wind up having to maintain two separate Google accounts, which means we have to swap logins whenever our Gmail, Reader, or other data is stored under the other account. Fortunately, there may be an end in sight for this juggling act.

HootSuite New Features

Check in, Rock out with Foursquare and MySpace on HootSuite

Just in time for SXSW, social butterflies can share favorite hot-spots with friends on Foursquare, plus bands and filmmakers can quickly connect with fans on MySpace - all from HootSuite's Social Media Dashboard.



Don't know about Foursquare? This web juggernaut combines way-finding, social marketing and gaming in an addictive mobile app which encourages everyday socialites to "check in" at cafes, pubs, and conferences. They can alert friends, share tips, and even become "mayor" of a location. Note: CEO Ryan loves it.



Of course, you know MySpace. The venerable web giant is the place where creative types hang out and share their work and is the first stop for discovering emerging and established bands and filmmakers. With HootSuite, artists can easily outreach to fans about shows, releases and screenings. P.S. Let's be MySpace friends.

HootSuite @SXSW

Are you headed to Austin for the massive interactive media, film, and music conference? Track us down to get your hands on some collectible cultural swag. We're also hosting Hoot-ups, giving demos and exploring the streets with the Owl in tow. Find us via the #hootsxsw hashtag plus this handy SXSW Twitter list.

You don't have to be on the ground in Texas to enjoy the fun - just add Foursquare and MySpace to your HootSuite social networks and learn locals-only tips and/or find where your favorite band is playing next - right from your beloved dashboard.

That ain't all - Marketing and stats enthusiasts take note that the custom URL parameters tool was enhanced in this release along with a batch of bug fixes and performance enhancements. Learn more about this release on the HootSuite blog.

5 ways to use Twitter in high gear

Most of the advice you’ll read is from people who have been invested in social media for sometime. Often times for years. Social media is an investment. It takes months to develop relationships on social networking services. It’s a process. Each social media service has its own culture and it takes time to unlock the human code or for each service. How people interact on a particular service is differs from site to site. However, some things are the same. It’s all digital communication. Here’s some how to get established with a new account on Twitter — but many of these same concepts apply to other social media services.
