Via.me the Social Publishing application available on iPhone now launched on Android

By | September 9th, 2012|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

Via.Me, the First App to Offer Photo, Video, Audio Filtering and Sharing to Multiple Social Networks, Is Now Available on Android Via.me is a social media publishing platform created by RadiumOne Labs that has been available on iTunes for Apple iPhone users for over 5 months which has proved very popular by its 1 millions users. And now on September the 4th RadiumOne introduced Via.me for Android on Google play. Even though I'd heard about Via.me I'd not actually downloaded it yet as I already use the very popular instagram and tumblr, and thought Via.me was just a copy of instagram - I had seen someone call the app instagram on steroids and heard people say not another Social Network.  Via.me themselves say that you can use it create your own story board, by creating a personal story or the story of your brand - so there I thought similar to Pinterest.  However after hearing that the application was now launched on Android, I realised it was getting very popular and I thought it was time to try it out.  And I'm so glad I [...]

New Friends Reunited = Pinterest meets Flickr in an an antique shop.

By | March 27th, 2012|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , , |

Friends reunited was launched in the year 2000 in the UK and was soon to be the UK's largest social network.  It allowed you to reunite with old school friends / work friends and later,  even people that lived in your childhood road. You could contact people via email on the site - but it tried to not allow you to give your msn or your email address to contact directly - there were ways around this but not everyone understood what michelle at msn dot com meant back in those days. Suddenly some add updates were made, there were meewee characters which you could use as our avatar, trying to make it more fun? AND the not so fun things, they had started to charge for emails and then for membership.  This is why users left, not the competition Facebook or Bebo - we had already decided to jump ship before we realised that Facebook and Bebo were going to be next. So now we've heard that Friends-reunited has been reunited and relaunched as a memorabilia site. When I logged on I was surprised to [...]

Pinterest is for women? You could try Gentlemint!

A month ago now, I wrote about Pinterest asking if you have you signed up for Pinterest yet? -  it seems to me that now the world and his wife has signed up!  People love it! Today, the Mail Online, suggested that Pinterest which is one of the fastest growing sites with 12 Million unique visitors (just in the US) could have over 97% female users.  Which I don't believe, I'd say out of my 300 followers many more than half are male. In fact when I open up my first page of followers you can see here yourself that they are almost ALL men. Pinterest is for girls?  As I looked through the rest of my followers this was pretty much the case all the way through. I know I do have many male followers probably due to the nature of my interests but this must show that the 97% figure is wrong. Besides which, you will only see the pictures of those that you are following unless you go into explore and then you can search for things like DIY or [...]
