Google to unveil social networking feature – latimes.com – Probably not news to many people, but clearly Google ramping up the expectations for their much-heralded new social network venture. No doubt some pressure to ensure they get this right, given the lack of buzzz with Buzz and the minor ripple that was Wave.
Seesmic Desktop 2 Brings More than 40 Social Networking Apps to One Window – I’ve recently installed the new version (have been using Seesmic 1 for some time) and can verify the credentials described here. It’s a great way of joining up conversations that are happening in an increasingly dissagreagrated social web environment. In fact, precisely the approach we are taking with the Knowledge Hub project – sometimes referred to as “Communities of Practice 2.0” (http://www.local.gov.uk/lgv2/core/page.do?pageId=174022). Seems like we’re all suffering from the same problems and coming to similar solutions.
