This Week’s Link Roundup #20

Every week millions of interesting links pop up around the Web. Some detail updates and advances in technology, some provide great insight to marketing strategies and tactics, some broaden our knowledge of the world around us, and others are just plain out-there. Since most of the staff at Aristotle share these links with each other, we thought we’d share them with you too. Enjoy.

SOCIAL

  • Facebook introduces “Graph Search.”
    We wrote a post on what exactly is Graph Search, and few Aristotle staff (including yours truly) have had a chance to play around with it. Click the link above to sign up for the beta.
  • The New MySpace opens to the public.
    Yes, it’s back! If you’re willing to give your relationship with MySpace another try or want to start a new own, you can sign up now.
  • Instagram’s doing just fine.
    After the ToS frenzy Instagram went through back in December, a lot of people thought this would drive people away and cripple Instagram’s userbase. Not so, my friends. Instagram actually reported record-breaking numbers.
  • Twitter updates embedded tweets.
    If you’ve never used an embedded tweet, now’s your chance. It’s simpler, faster and contains more features. See my example below.


MOBILE

  • Google updates Handwrite tool.
    I’m leading this link as an update, but you may not even know it existed in the first place (disclosure: I did not). If you visit Google.com on your smartphone, you can turn on a function in the settings called “Handwrite,” which allows you to write your search with your finger. Sometimes typing on a smartphone is tough, says Google, so they’ve made it easier.

TECHNOLOGY

  • Google is trying to fix passwords.
    Passwords are difficult to remember. Or at least, we have so many passwords that remembering them all is difficult. Google intends to fix this problem, and their proposed solution may be the key. (That pun is going to make a lot of since once you read the article, I promise.)
