TechCrunch50′s Udorse Takes Facebook Photo Tagging to a Whole New Level

Udorse's earnings

Udorse's earnings

Well well well, we have reached the end of the Pop Idol of Silicon Valley, and despite all the innovation, one winner had to be selected, this year the prize went to RedBeacon. RedBeacon is a new platform that allows you to hire local service providers online without any phone calls. While it is kind of an interesting service, it didn’t get me excited about its offering and potential as Udorse did. RedBeacon does facilitate people’s search for service providers but doesn’t really bring anything new to the table – in my opinion at least -. On the other hand, Udorse manages to take photos tagging to a whole new level.

Facebook Photos Tagging:

One of the features that made Facebook photo sharing so popular is enabling you to tag your friends and give names to the people in your photos. Today, instead of calling your friend and ask him about the girl with him in the photo he posted to his Facebook account, you can simply figure out her name – and potentially other information if her profile is public – through the simple tag in the photo.

4 Ways of How Twitter Can Make Money… Which will it be?

The debate of how twitter will be able to make green to materialize its success has been a contentious question on the minds of many in social media. There has been a lot of talk about the different models that Twitter can take up, and Twitter has just taken the first step on adopting a model.

So, Why Is It Taking This Long?

With about 51.6 million visitors (as of July – comScore), Twitter is still not able to see the dollar sign in all those eyeballs. The problem has been that the nature of Twitter creates some obstacles that require quite the creative model to overcome. Twitter’s claim to fame has been its accessibility and simplicity, whether it’s in the millions of ways that you can access the service or the openness of its API, it has been loved for those qualities. Yet those same qualities are complicating the answer to our original question. The fact of the matter is that they don’t serve ads because they fear alienating their users, especially that Twitter has a lot of users who never access the website directly and only use it through other clients and services. But things are starting to shift and it seems that Biz Stone is shuffling its feet towards settling on a business model.

Does More Social Media = Shorter Product & Service Life Cycle?

Is the relationship between the life cycle of products and services inversely related to the use of social media? How does social media influence the perceptions and even usage of products and services, especially when it comes to the trendy, fashionable and high tech ones?

Semantic Web 3.0: The day you will have your own assistant, maybe?

The Internet, since its inception, facilitated sharing and accessing information but the information on the web was not interconnected. What the semantic web attempts to do is allow computers to socializes with each other and share and understand the information that interests them or their users and pull other relevant information from the web revolutionizing the way we view and process data.
