About.me as a Business Card – emarketingvids.com

I was on emarketingvids.com today for Apps n Tools Thursday talking about business cards. I still believe the old fashioned card is still important in your everyday meetings. However, if you need to meet with someone virtually, you can use another type of business card. It’s called About.me and you can use it as an online business card.

Facebook in Power (dot com) Struggle 0

Facebook in Power (dot com) Struggle

Power dot com, an agregator for social networking sites, has sued Facebook over issues of access. The suit, however, is framed in terms of “Who owns users’ data?” The Reuters story (full story here) is short of details of what exactly Power dot com wants to do with the data, but I’m guessing it’s an issue of access. I went to the Power dot com site; it asked me to log into Twitter, LinkedIn, orkut, MySpace, or hi5 with my site password (not a separate Power dot com password). It also offered me the chance to create an account at Twitter, orkut, or hi5 through the Power dot com portal (that function did not display in Opera and did display in Firefox, leading me to conclude that their pop-up script is non-standards-compliant). Facebook was absent from the list.
