The CIA Gets Twitter | Forbes

The CIA Gets Twitter | Forbes | SocialMoMojo Web | Scoop.it
Not everyone was amused, though, but varying responses to the CIA's entrance on Twitter show who is best prepared to go mano-a-mano with the agency on social networks.
Jessica Kelly's insight:

Not a CIA fan, but you have to admit its first tweet is brilliant -- almost as much as Amnesty International's reply.

And can I secretly admit that I want the CIA Twitter job? ;)

Facebook’s Canvas Format Isn’t Just for Ads Anymore

Facebook’s Canvas Format Isn’t Just for Ads Anymore | SocialMoMojo Web | Scoop.it
Facebook users can expect to start seeing more of the company's Canvas format. For those of you who haven't been following all of Facebook's different ad..
Jessica Kelly's insight:
"Canvas is basically a mobile ad that opens into an interactive, full-screen page...Facebook says the format has been a success already, with users spending an average of 31 seconds in Canvas, adding up across everyone who’s interacted with the format to 100 years of time (which is kind of a depressing thought …)."

Why LinkedIn Will Make You Hate Microsoft Word

Why LinkedIn Will Make You Hate Microsoft Word | SocialMoMojo Web | Scoop.it
The two companies envision a world where someone’s always bothering you while you’re writing.
Jessica Kelly's insight:
NYT: "If Microsoft has its way, the vast membership of LinkedIn, the business networking site with more than 433 million members, will be instantly available to you while you use Microsoft products..." [So in essence,] "the two companies envision a world where someone’s always bothering you while you’re writing." 

Microsoft describes this possible experience as "delightful," but I'd have to agree w/NYT:

"'Delightful' is not the first adjective that comes to mind here, or even the 10th. If I’m working in Word, I can’t see why I’d welcome the intrusion of even a close friend, let alone a bot telling me about a stranger pulled from LinkedIn’s database."

Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest... Oh, My! | TechCrunch Social | SocialMoMojo Web | Scoop.it
TechCrunch is a leading technology media property, dedicated to obsessively profiling startups, reviewing new Internet products, and breaking tech news.
Jessica Kelly's insight:
I rarely if ever scoop (as in Scoop.it) an entire section of a website, nearly always selecting individual posts instead. So far this week, however, TechCrunch has gone above and beyond in terms of scooping (as in journalism lingo) and summarizing social news. Here's what's on the slate of important updates:

Twitter...
- Launches a standalone Dashboard for SMBs -- a barebones features that isn't as exciting as it could be
- Adds Stickers for photos -- *linked* stickers that work like hashtags

Facebook...
- Launches new Save and Share extensions for Chrome
- Promotes Messenger's Send or Request Money feature
- Brings Slideshow to iOS -- *ahead* of Apple's own Memories

Pinterest...
- Will enable product search via smartphone images
