Here is a selection of posts and tools I’ve liked in October.
On Social Media tools:
- on Twitter: read TWEET IDEAS: 13 Things to Do on Twitter Besides Tweet and liked FileSharing and the Twitter Buziness Card exchange service. To be fair, I’m curious to check on the Twitter Spymaster game… but very reluctant to use my Twitter to do it 😉
- On Google Wave:
- I liked the “What’s all the fuzz about Google Wave?” video – two reasons, 1st the design and drawing technique used -nice work similar to the Google Story video – and 2nd for its content,
- I read the Oreilly intro to Google Wave and wondered about usability. Curious to try it. My invite is still… on the road :(.
- on Facebook: French blog ConseilsenMarketing (Marketing Advice) published a huge post “A professional use of Facebook” [FR] – listing 15 use for FB in business, +30 FB applications and also safety advices and an analyze of the good and the bad about FB .
- on blogging: I liked Beth’s post “7 Tips for Measuring the Success of your Blog” – not just listing tools, explaining.
- I was surprised to read that French magazine Liberation started a social network mixing SMS & Twitter, [FR] – I’m very curious and looking forward for a way to try it.
- I enjoyed this post by Altitude Branding: Social Media Time Management: 9 Guiding Principles | Brand Elevation Through Social Media and Social Business | Altitude Branding,
On Product Management:
- I liked the How to section of the Brainmates web site.
- Enjoyed finding an Alltop section dedicated to Product Management – I’m not yet done going through it.
On other subjets:
- Read “Gartner’s 2009 top 10 strategic technologies” – a year after it’s publication. The Iphone apps effect is missing IMO.
- Learned about “5 major limitations to the use of social networks inside French corporations” with Ceciiil’s great post [FR]
- And liked Fred Cavazza’s post questioning about our future: “Will conversations replace messages?” [FR]
Tools I’ve tried:
- Remember the Milk with it’s Gmail integration – nice TODO list 😉
- HootSuite a web based Twitter client offering multiple account, custom search and Tweet later option. In addition to TweetDeck and useful when you are on the go without your computer.
- and stopped using:
- TweetAdder – tool to automatize followup, send nice message, schedule tweets and much more. Limited to one Tweeter account in demo, no way to have several messages in different languages and… too much automatizing kill the connection.
