Facebook Video Calling

“Facebook’s new Video Calling service is powered by Skype; perhaps because of that, it’s simple and straightforward to use. You’ll first need to download a plug-in by going to www.facebook.com/videocalling, clicking on the Get Started button, then on the Setup button. At that point, you’ll download and install a Java plug-in.”

Google+ Hangout

“When more than two people participate in a Hangout, the large image shows whoever is talking — Hangout chooses which person will be center stage depending on audio feedback. If several people talk at the same time, the video goes back and forth from one to another.”

Facebook allows you to maximize your profile picture to a size of 180×540 (width x height in pixels)

When deciding how to make your new profile picture you can keep your logo up top and include pictures of your business, of your services, and most importantly a phone number / call to action…  the most popular one right now is

“Hello, inevitability. Deals for Facebook launches today in Atlanta, Austin, Dallas, San Diego, and San Francisco, offering users the opportunity to cash in on city-specific discounts through prepaid vouchers. The Deals tab has been active in those cities since last month, but the actual discounts start rolling in today.

Somewhere out in Chicago, Groupon is kicking itself for not pulling off its IPO sooner.”

Here the author mentions Reachlocal:

“Intriguingly, Facebook isn’t diving into this high-margin niche alone. Instead of setting up specialized sales forces in its launch cities, the site has simply teamed up with OpenTable (Nasdaq: OPEN  ) ,ReachLocal (Nasdaq: RLOC  ) , and other existing, city-specific discount providers.”
