San Francisco start up Path has release their new eponymously named app, Path, hoping to solve our problem of simply having too many friends on Facebook. According to their own blog, they claim that, “Path is the personal network. The personal network doesn’t replace your existing social network—it augments them.” What this means is that it has no intention or capability to compete with Facebook or Twitter; it just wants to be useful to (mainly) those who use their Smartphone to update their social network page.
For a long times, one of the few complaints Facebook users had was the inability to apply different background layouts for Facebook. Unlike MySpace, which allows users to radically change the way their profile appears, it is often difficult to recognize it as a MySpace page. Facebook has long stuck with their traditional, if somewhat plain background layout. There is some evidence that Facebook may have begun to move towards a more customizable experience for their users.
Over the past several years, social media sites like FaceBook and MySpace have become an integral part of many consumers’ lives. Used for everything from keeping track of friends and family to marketing business efforts, it seems like everyone has a FaceBook profile. FaceBook, which has millions of users, may very well be the most popular social media site and many of its users often ask the following question: How can I see who looks at my FaceBook profile? They ask this question with good reason. Whether you are interested in who is looking for you or more interested in targeting the traffic that views your profile, there are a lot of reasons people would like to know just exactly who views their profile.
FaceBook is literally loaded with applications and games. From building a farm to city living, many of these games are ‘Sim’ like adventures, allowing you to control various aspects of your avatar and their environment. Some of these, like Farmville, have become so massively popular it seems that everyone is playing them. One of the most unique, and perhaps most fun, is the game ‘County Life.
For a long time, people dismissed the notion that Facebook could truly be profitable. For a long time, people doubted whether Facebook could be used for marketing and be successful at the same time. Initially the audience resisted marketing. Now Facebook marketing is here, and doesn't appear to be going away any time soon.
Just when I was thinking social media had reached its peak with a focus on location, Facebook decides they want their own version of Google Docs for Facebook.. While it is not fully functional yet, I think it’s a brilliant move that takes the site to the next level and further distinguishes from other social media sites!
To save time and supplement my online shopping addiction, I subscribe to Lucky Magazine, which targets working women in their 20’s and 30’s, advertising page after page of products. To be more exact, it is a special interest magazine that is all about shopping and style. It works like a monthly catalog that features purchase information on everything from the hottest peep-toe to pumps to the best new makeup products.
There has been a lot of buzz around the Apple Tablet for quite a few months now. For a while, there was such little information leaked that we started to think it was just a myth.

Here at Optimum7, we have been blessed by the Google gods and finally received our Google Wave invite. We are surmising we received it due to our reseller account with Google.
