Check out what happened in the social space this week:
UPGRADE: Facebook adds content from Flickr, Instagram, Pinterest, & Tumblr
Facebook began testing with Android beta testers this week an upgraded version of Facebook’s Home Android launcher that integrates content from Flickr, Instagram, Pinterest, & Tumblr. The goal is to attract more Home users by including the content they care about most, which may be driving them to abandon Facebook Home for other platforms.
Android users: Does this excite you? Have you tried it? Let me know!
INTEGRATION: Klout + Bing
Klout has rolled out an integration with Bing, not only incorporating Bing results into Klout score calculations, but also evolving to include Snapshots, an opt in feature that allows “anyone who signs up to verify and manage how they appear in Bing search results, based on their public social network profiles.” It will be interesting to see who rushes to verify themselves and scrutinize how they come up on Bing.
DEAL: Twitter + Comcast
Twitter has announced #SeeIt, a new feature that allows Comcast customers to essentially change the channel directly by letting Comcast subscribers tune into a TV show via a tweet. This partnership is a major step in connecting Twitter (and how people use Twitter) to TV programming and viewing activity. This “instant online remote control” could have powerful implications for the future around how people talk about, and actually engage with, TV content.
