Social Videoconferencing via Facebook: Airtime Is Here

Robin Good: Airtime is a new social videoconferencing app that allows you to have one-to-one video conversations with people you have probably never met before, but who share your same location and interests.


From TheNextWeb review: "Essentially, it’s like Chat Roulette, but not nearly as creepy, and with little to zero nudity.

From "Airtime is the combination of two existing technologies; web-based videoconferencing and interest-based user pairing."


"Airtime is tied to your Facebook account (Parker is the former President of Facebook, which should help to ensure successful integration).


The Facebook connection serves a few purposes. It allows Airtime users to easily initiate video chat with their Facebook friends, and it also allows Airtime to peek into your publicly listed "interests" (likes, subscriptions, etc.) and use that information to connect you with other, random, Airtime users."

Facebook Introduces Pinterest-Style, Curated "Collections"

Facebook Introduces Pinterest-Style, Curated "Collections" | Career-Life Development |

Robin Good: Facebook has introduced a new curation feature designed to allow its users to collect and organize their favorite "products" into so-called "Collections".


According to Hubspot "the new feature called 'Collections,' allows marketers to add “Want” or “Collect” buttons to news feed posts about products."




The new FB "Collections" is publicly available to everyone, and it is being tested "with 7 retail partners -- Pottery Barn, Wayfair, Victoria’s Secret, Michael Kors, Neiman Marcus, Smith Optics, and"

(you need to go to those FB brad pages to test it).


It also seems that the feature can be activated in at least three different ways by one of these three upcoming action buttons:


a) "Want": adds the product to a Timeline section of a user's profile called “Wishlist”


b) "Collect": adds the item to a Collection called “Products”


c) "Like": a special version of the standard "Like" button that also adds the item to “Products”


N.B.: While Collections are free for business pages to use, they're only visible to the page's fans. You have to "Like" the page in order to see these types of posts.
