New MySpace comes at a time when social networks are becoming bloated

Have you checked out the all new MySpace? If you haven’t already then you really should take a look.

In June 2011, Specific Media Group and Justin Timberlake jointly purchased the company taking it over from News Corp.

Since the takeover the whole site and platform has been rebuilt and redesigned, and for music discovery and networking (in that sense) it is the best out there and blows Facebook out of the water.

What’s better is that the help and support platform is actively managed and you do get a response to any queries.

My recommendation – check this out!

We landed upon this recently whilst looking for a piece of software that would conveniently allow us to take a screenshot and upload it online and enable us to share that link with others – instantly.

Enter Tiny Grab, developed by Company52, which allows you to do all the above seamlessly and effortlessly. What’s even better is the fact it doesn’t cost a penny which is something we really appreciate.

Some of the features include the following:

  • Automatic Image Uploading
  • Quick Image Sharing
  • Custom Server Uploading

Tiny Grab can be downloaded for Mac from http://tinygrab.com/download.php and for iPhone from the App Store

What is Foursquare?

This is a question we get asked quite a bit, so I thought I’d put it together in a blog post so you can stop asking us – sound good?

So to get to the nitty gritty: What is Foursquare (#4sq)? Taken from the web site, which explains it in the best detail:

Foursquare is a free app that helps you and your friends make the most of where you are. When you’re out and about, use Foursquare to share and save the places you visit. And, when you’re looking for inspiration for what to do next, we’ll give you personalized recommendations and deals based on where you, your friends, and people with your tastes have been.

Whether you’re setting off on a trip around the world, coordinating a night out with friends, or trying to pick out the best dish at your local restaurant, Foursquare is the perfect companion.

The app is free and available for all popular mobile platforms as well as via a mobile site at http://foursquare.com/mobile.

I’m a big advocate of the app – it helps you discover new locations and lets you and your friends find different locations to hang out.

Depending on where you check in, offers may be available to you where you can get money off, or deals on products (food, drink etc). I can spend a lot of time discussing the business marketing aspect but I’ll be here all night, so shall keep that for another time – watch this space!

If you check in at a location often enough you become the ‘Mayor’ and again, depending on the venue, different offers may be available to you!

So, what are you waiting for, get started!
