1. Twitter Confirms Facebook Integration of Usernames, Hashtags, Photos

    Twitter has quietly tweaked the way usernames, hashtags, photos and more are cross-posted to Facebook.

    “The updated Twitter for Facebook integration now includes additional rich media experiences related to the first photo, URL, @mention or #hashtag in the cross-posted tweet,” Twitter spokesman Robert Weeks told Mashable on Thursday night. “This update is available for everyone.”

    Twitter‘s Help Center also notes the changes, which Weeks says rolled out at the end of May: “We have fixed many issues with the Twitter for Facebook integration, including the ability to post to Facebook Pages, and added some new features!”

    Users who don’t see the integration working can disconnect their Twitter and Facebook accounts in their Twitter profile settings and then reconnect their accounts in their Twitter profile settings.

  2. Why Facebook’s Tanking Today…

    The stock is falling! The stock is falling! If you stopped following the Facebook IPOcalypse on Friday, it might be time to pull up another chair.

    Facebook was never worth $104 billion. And the IPO was never about a stock price shooting into the stratosphere. There’s a reason nearly every significant early investor—including Mark Zuckerberg—sold of tens of millions of shares in the lead-up to Friday’s debut. It was easily the best price they were going to get for the foreseeable future. Meanwhile, Facebook has an extra $16 billion in the bank. Win-win, assuming you were already a billionaire.

  4. In Pinterest We Trust (From AdWeek)

    vivalamedia:


    From AdWeek… Pinterest may be a social media newcomer, but, apparently, it’s already beating Twitter and Facebook when it comes to trust among women in the U.S.

    According to BlogHer’s annual study on women and social media, when asked whether they trusted different social media sources, 81 percent of women representing the general U.S. population said they trusted blogs and Pinterest, while 67 percent said they trusted Facebook and 73 percent said they trusted Twitter. (The questions were asked of those who indicated that they used each of the social media services.)

    The study also found that when asked if they’d ever made a purchase based on a recommendation from one of the various sources, 61 percent said they’d acted on a blog recommendation and 47 percent said they’d acted on one from Pinterest. Just 33 percent said the same about Facebook and 31 percent said that about Twitter.
