More Social Media Stuff

While I’m at it, here’s a page with social media “infographics.”

My favorite is the Life Cycle of a Blog Post (obviously) and the Online Communities map.

Twitter and Tumblr Web Apps

Have you ever wanted to see every tweet tweeted on Twitter in real time tweeted about Waiting for the Sun sunglasses?  Sign me up.  Maybe you’re more into something like Mashable, new music, hammocks, or whatever the hell floats your boat.

Twittefall will find it for you. It’s like a Golden Retriever for the Twittersphere. Just type in whatever keyword you want to see and Twitterfall finds posts that include that keyword and displays them on the page, one at a time, and queues the bunch until they have all streamed through.  Incoming tweets are queued as well.

You can sign in and get information on your Twitter account, add a geolocation, exclude certai keywords, search for lists or keywords, and you can even direct message, reply to, retweet, and all that jazz to each post/user.

All in all, it’s one cool page.

There’s also a cool Twitter Graph stats website that graphs out your Tweeting habits and patterns if you’re a visual representation geek.

For Tumblr, there’s a Tumblarity site that lists your posts, age, post history, popularity on Tumblr and stuff like that.

Again, cool stuff.  Enjoy

Web, Twitter Trend Maps

This internet “trends” map is laid  out like a subway system, with different websites representing stops along the lines that an internet user might take.  Basically a really cool visual representation of the internet.

Web Trends

Here’s another interesting map that shows popular tweets geographically.

London is tweeting about Grease.

Some guy in East Lansing is “doing lines and wishing Melly was here.”

Atlanta is tweeting about Ihop.  Fuck that noise, get on that Ohop level.

What are people near you saying?

State of the Blogsphere, 2009. Suck on this, Scott Lustig.

Apparently, 77% of internet users read blogs in 2009.  Not bad.

From 2002 to 2009, there were 133,000,000 blogs (created?).

Also, more than half are married, and more than half are parents?  Didn’t know that one.

Shoutout to Georgia Katapodis on this one

With the social media buzz on overdrive, next time you want to deliver a dynamic pick up line, skip the old, overdone “did it hurt?  When you fell from heaven?”  and go straight to this fancy little maneuverer.  It’s guaranteed to work 100% of the time, 60 % of the time:

“Why don’t you come over to myspace later and I can twitter your yahoo until you google all over my Facebook?”
