A fellow affiliate marketer and blogger with the name Andrew Wee from WhoIsAndrewWee.com was writing an interesting post while I was heading to Affiliate Summit East in Miami two weeks ago.

The major business networking sites LinkedIn and Xing are quick in providing one feature after another to out-do each other in the struggle for increasing their member bases and market share.

Robert Scoble broke the news on Sunday night first as far as I can tell. The address book, calendar and task management and synchronization platform Plaxo opened their new version 3.0 beta to the public. As a user and fan of Plaxo, did I go and tested it out right away of course. I had […]
My last one, two, three posts that involved Xing.com did always contain a comparison to LinkedIn. This time is it no different, although there nothing directly to compare.

In the YouChoose section of their website, videos from Presidential hopefuls like Barack Obama and Mitt Romney will be displayed and YouTube users […]
The CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother has scored big wins on MySpace and YouTube by weaving storylines from the show online. Their first success is with a MySpace “fan” page for Robin Sparkles, a fake 1980’s Canadian pop star, which is the embarrassing secret alter-ego for one of the main characters.
An article in the eMarketer newsletter today predicts that the “four big portals” (Google, Yahoo!, AOL, MSN) are grabbing an increasing share of online ad spending: Add to that a fifth contestant, MySpace, which is rapidly moving from “social networking” site to a portal play. The mainstreaming of MySpace is all-but-complete complete with the launch […]
