It’s back! Celebrity MySpace investor Justin Timberlake announced on Twitter, a new revamped MySpace site is coming soon. It’s currently in beta-testing stages, but it looks to be a mix of Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest with a focus on images and music.
Not to be outdone, LinkedIn has a new redesign and a new feature – Endorsements. You can now endorse a particular skill someone has with a click in the top profile section or in the new Skills and Expertise section at the bottom.
LinkedIn also added 150 super influencers, who fans can follow (think Twitter). The super influencers have been verified in an effort to avoid fake accounts.
Clicks don’t matter. That’s the message Facebook is trying to get-out. They are asking advertisers to look at the bigger picture, and that sales often come from people seeing an ad, but not necessarily clicking-on it. This data comes from a study done with new Facebook partner DataLogix. The DataLogix partnership has some users worried about privacy, since the firm uses email addresses to match-up consumers to loyalty programs. Facebook addressed the issue saying the information is secret and aggregated into groups.
In case you missed it, Twitter is becoming more visual. A new re-design announced a few weeks ago, includes more photos, including a Facebook-like header photo. With a new emphasis on mobile, there are new Twitter-designed iPad, iPhone and Android apps.
