Facebook introduced mobile app "Messenger" on August to send and receive messages on our phones. Prominent features of Messenger:

Reach friends right on their phones
Now you can send messages directly to your friends on their mobile phones, so you stay in touch no matter where you go. Message friends or anyone in your mobile contacts.

Get and send messages fast
With the new standalone Messenger app, now messaging with friends is faster than ever. Messages are delivered instantly, and they're always just a click away.

Make plans with groups on the go
Group conversations make it easy to message everyone at once and see where your friends are. Don't want to share your location? Turn it off with one click.

Update on Messenger:

It has been updated with:

  • Option to see who's online and on mobile, know when the other person is typing and easier to contact people you message most.
  • Now available for BlackBerry, iPhone and Android with support for 22 new Android languages, and 12 new iPhone languages.

Google is shutting down services

Google has recently announced that it'll shut down some of it's services. This is a step towards concentrating more on Google+

The services that Google is going to shut down include:

  • In a few weeks, Google Buzz and the Buzz API will be shut down, and focus instead on Google+. While people obviously won't be able to create new posts after that, they will be able to view their existing content on their Google Profile, and download it using Google Takeout.
  • Jaiku – for sending updates to friends – will be shut down on January 15, 2012. An option to enable users to export their data from Jaiku might be available.
  • With their new focus on Google+, they will remove iGoogle's social features on January 15, 2012. iGoogle itself, and non-social iGoogle applications, will stay as they are.

LinkedIn – New Company Updates

LinkedIn announced new company status updates, that will now let members receive further insights — breaking news about the company, employee moves, relevant job opportunities or the latest on their products and services including multimedia content — directly from the companies they follow.

Company Follow was launched earlier for professionals to follow companies on LinkedIn. The new "company status updates" option has made it easier for companies to communicate with their audience or people who follow them on LinkedIn — whether it’s employees, customers or prospects.

For professionals

There was already an option to follow a company. So now if you follow companies you’ll start seeing status updates shared by the company in your homepage news feed. This will not only keep you informed of insightful content from companies you follow, but will also let you comment, like or share it.

For companies

There are millions of companies with company pages on LinkedIn. They now have the ability to customize and share more valuable insights with their followers.

With this new release, companies will have the flexibility to share the latest on the company directly to all of their followers on their company page’s “Overview” tab.

Status updates can be up to 500 characters long and can support URLs with multimedia as well. Given that any LinkedIn member can comment, like or share it, this is a great way to build engagement with customers, potential employees and prospects alike.
To learn more on how to turn this feature on for your company go here.
