Heard of Tell-a-Friend from SocialTwist?

I am posting this using a new service called Tell-a-Friend from SocialTwist. This service lets me announce about a site or a blog to my friends using Email, IM, Blogs and Social Networks. It can be used to spread the word about search engines results or interesting product offers, blog posts, etc.

This is so different from other such services because:

  • Users can reach out to friends across social networks
  • Simpler and faster means to spread the word
  • Default context-rich message which can be personalized
  • Wide range of buttons and widget themes
  • No sign up, risk-free option
  • No need to copy-paste widget for every change of widget configuration
  • Incisive analytics to measure spread

You can add it to your site or blog for free at:

Yahoo OpenSocial Alliance?

New alliance is hot in the OpenSocial world. Google, Friendster, hi5, imeem, Linkedin, Dekoh, Myspace, Ning, Oracle, Orkut, Plaxo, SalessForce, Six Apart, Xing and many others on a GoogleOpen Social board. Yahoo is considering Google’s OpenSocial alliance, which would be the big throttle that will bring a tool and service which work across many web platforms. Everyone is there in the OpenSocial team, except Facebook, whose founder have some issues regarding secretive and cryptic.

Mildly positive comment on these rumors by Yahoo’s “yahoo has a rich history of supporting open standards, as they believe industry collaboration is beneficial to the developer community and the web as a whole, while they are evaluating OpenSocial as an emerging standard, they do not comment on speculation or rumors

Facebok will make there own life difficult by acting against the wishes of others, it will take them so far, at the end they will probably have to announce there support here.
