Social Media…”App”-cept the changes

In the world of social media, new application, plug-ins and widgets are created daily.   To be up-to-date with the updated technology, diligence is required.

I started a course in Social Media this past October.  In these past 2 months, I have witnessed first-hand updates and upgrades on and for several different sites.  Among these include Facebook, Twitter, and HootSuite.  In addition, there are so many different applications and plug-ins that have been created for the Web 2.o, with new ones arriving on the scene daily.  In fact,  I just read the following article:

I must admit that 3 out of the 5 were new to me, one of them being Digg Digg (no, not Digg the crowd-sourced news site…Digg Digg, a WordPress plug-in that enables you to post articles on various social media networks.)

Digg…Digg Digg…I will bet that there will be a Digg Digg Digg very soon.

I also have been looking for the latest and greatest Twitter applications…and perused through many well-written and interesting articles about the many different ones including this one at Flickr (  Here you graphically see a top 10 Twitter app list.

Top 10 Twitter Applications

These are the top 10 out of a gazillion, I am convinced.

The moral of the story: don’t ever feel comfortable with what you know now…it will change within 2 months!
