Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great week. So what’s up with this “Social Cold War” happening between some major social networks? Most notable this week goes to Facebook vs Twitter, which as you probably know, have been exchanging “favors” lately (see also Instagram standoff). Twitter, which announced its recent acquisition of Vine, has reportedly been slapped by Facebook recently. According to Mashable, a request to search for Facebook friends on Vine now yields a pop-up message indicating that the app is not authorized to make the Facebook request. What do you guys think about all this. Will this be good for the users? Social sharing between networks is starting to close more and more. After all, and at the end of the day, it’s just business..

Speaking of Vine. Twitter officially announced 2 days ago the following:

Today, we’re introducing Vine: a mobile service that lets you capture and share short looping videos. Like Tweets, the brevity of videos on Vine (6 seconds or less) inspires creativity. Now that you can easily capture motion and sound, we look forward to seeing what you create.

6 Seconds? Wow, that definitely requires a lot of creativity. Anyway, here’s an example of a “micro-video” that shows you #howto make a steak tartare in just 6 seconds (posted by Twitter’s CEO). OK, I’m not going to try this. Not a steak tartare fan :)

Finally, here’s an interesting video from Rand that discusses what makes content unique in the eyes of the crawlers, and the bane of duplicate content.

As usual, in no particular order:

Inbound Marketing/SEO

Content Marketing/Small Business Bites

More Cool Stuff and Other Roundups

That’s it! Enjoy, have a great weekend!

Hello DiTesco,
Hope you are in great health. I am new to your blog and I found that it is very cool looking. I like specially these types of themes. I read your post and it is good explained and really enjoy your video “what makes content unique in the eyes of the crawlers”
Thanks for sharing :)

I heard about the 6 second Twitter video thing. I can’t imagine making a very useful video that is only 6 seconds long. Possibly something funny though, but that is still tough to do in that short amount of time.

Hi Ray. I agree. 6 seconds is not long enough time, but then again, 140 characters on Twitter was also the same when it started. Like you, I’m curious as to what people can do with that little time :)
