Last month, I told you about Major League Baseball’s MLB.tv promotion, where they offered free streaming Spring Training games on their Facebook page.
According to a memo the Associated Press reports on today, the US Department of Homeland Security is entertaining the idea using Facebook and Twitter as one of its means to issue terror alerts beginning soon.
It is unclear how exactly, they will issue these alerts, but one can imagine that they will be utilizing their current Facebook Page and the new National Terrorism Advisory System Twitter Feed.
It has never really been very (relatively) easy to ‘unfriend’ someone on Facebook. For some time, the only way to do this was to click on a link all the way down at the bottom of the left-hand column of their profile page.
With the launch of the new Facebook iPhone app update, unfriending someone is now just as easy as sending them a message.
AdWeek reported today that Major League Baseball will be offering their At Bat 11 mobile app to iPad/iPod/iPhone owners for free during the month of April.
At Bat 11, which offers live, streaming, out-of-market games on mobile devices is being offered courtesy of Volvo. Apparently, it the deal is not available for Android or Blackberry owners.
As part of their new social search effort, Google debuted +1 today.
+1 is, well, a like button. In fact, it appears to be exactly the same as a Facebook like button.
Here is how it appears to work. You search for something on Google. If you really like one of the websites in your results, you click on the +1 icon. Doing this ‘recommends’ the site to your Gmail contacts and also appears to tally the +1s for each site.
