istella | Italian search engine

istella | Italian search engine | Social Web Innovation | Scoop.it

istella is a different search-engine that speaks italian language and culture, recognizes and describes the various aspects of Italian identity.


While the current search-engines explore only the web, istella can take advantage of the immense heritage of historical archives and books, encyclopedias, historical maps, national magazines and the content published by users, non-indexed so far.

Massimiliano Cammuso's insight:


The search engine is becoming increasingly sophisticated, semantic search, graph search by Facebook and the surprise that Google will pull out in a short time. In Italy after the case Volunia, there is a new search engine, a new star: istella


I was immediately fascinated when I saw as the page background a photo of Naples.


Who knows if the new search engine will be able to understand from the beginning, from the first access aspects familiar to us, or if Tiscali has created beautiful background of beautiful Italian cities?


Although it is easier to think of the second case for several reasons (Italian search engine, culture, beauty ...) I must say that I could easily believe also to the first case.

In any case I will try it soon


Which photography has appeared to you?

Facebook buys Gowalla

Facebook buys Gowalla | Social Web Innovation | Scoop.it

Facebook has acquired location sharing service Gowalla for an undisclosed sum, according to a source close to Gowalla.

Launched in 2009, Austin-based Gowalla went head-to-head with direct rival Foursquare, but lost. Badly trailing Foursquare in user adoption, Gowalla recently shifted directions, recasting itself as a travel guide.

Facebook gift card

Facebook gift card | Social Web Innovation | Scoop.it
Massimiliano Cammuso's insight:

It's called "Facebook Card" and is a normal prepaid branded credit card, through which users can make purchases, for now, in some stores (Jamba Juice, Olive Garden, Sephora and Target).


It can be reloaded with money that you can spend even in other stores other than the one initially chosen.


The card can contain different balances for different stores at the same time. The gift card will be able to contain, for example, 100 dollars to spend from Sephora, 50 from Target and 80 from Olive Garden.


For now the service is active only in USA.

Facebook will kill “Questions” product

Facebook will kill “Questions” product | Social Web Innovation | Scoop.it

Techcrunch reports that Facebook is going to shut down "Questions"

Launched in July 2010 "Questions" appeared the murderess of Quora, but soon people realized the opportunity to have an audience of high quality, searchable questions on search engines and that all the issues have been well organized by topic so Quora has grown to become the platform for Q&A.


Are you sorry for the news? have you ever used "Questions"? and Quora?

A cosa assisteremo nel 2012?

A cosa assisteremo nel 2012? | Social Web Innovation | Scoop.it

Il 2011 ci ha lasciato con un anno intensissimo di avvenimenti legati al mondo internet. E' stato veramente l'anno del boom dei social network. Facebook, Twitter, Google l'hanno fatta da padrone per il social networking, poi altre a seguire come Linkedin, Groupon, Zynga ecc. Per la Social Web Innovation e per business aggregato, aggiungo marchi come Apple, Samsung. Colossi dell'economia globale!

Per il 2012 Key4biz dice "...che al centro dell’attenzione ci saranno sicuramente l’HTML5, il nuovo set di standard che contribuirà a rendere i siti web più veloci ed eleganti, e il cloud computing.
Nel 2012, inoltre, il dibattito si concentrerà probabilmente anche sui potenziali effetti catastrofici di una cyber guerra: un attacco, o una serie di attacchi, volti a colpire il web e tutte le informazioni – commerciali, governative, private – veicolate online. "

La vera sfida Globale per questo 2012 secondo me sarà tra i due maxi player Apple e Google
