The Moments app uses geo-location and push notifications to passively reconnect old photos with locations, helping you and those you care about to relive favorite memories.

We don’t remember days, months, or years. We remember moments. And for when we don’t, there’s now an app for that. Instead of posting, sharing, or checking-in; what if you were reminded? Moments is an app that reminds you of the memories that are most important to you. With the Moments App, when you pass by places that you have been to, Moments sends you a push notification. You can then relive and share your special moment with the friends and family who were with you at the time.

Facebook and other social networks are finding it hard to fight off increased mobile usage and some pundits are even suggesting that social networks are dying. Based on stats, however, social media platforms do not seem to be going anywhere. For instance, we have reports on the increase in the number of social media users and even tweets on Twitter; we also have reports that clearly indicate an ever-increasing population on Facebook.

I noticed today, a quietly rolled out Facebook feature which lets Facebook users forward their Facebook messages. You can forward those messages to other Facebook users, but more importantly, you can forward them to any outside email address. And who is the return address? Your @facbook.com default email, of course.

Facebook Stalking App

Using your phone to Facebook ‘friend’ a person you’ve just met is a frustrating experience –carefully spelling out names, looking through the photo list to find yourself, etc. Well, Facebook appeared to find a solution in the form a new app — Find Friends Nearby. An app that uses GPS to let you select from a list of nearby Facebook users. TechCrunch was tipped off this past weekend to the new app — initially known as “Friendshake”. The app had been quietly rolled out with no announcement. The app seemed like a useful tool for exchanging contact information with one or multiple people with minimal effort. So why did Facebook kill it only a few hours later?

Censorship is alive… and it’s about to take over the Internet. There is a new bill floating around the House of Representatives called SOPA –Stop Online Piracy Act. In theory it sounds fair – it would give the music and movie industries (among others) the right to keep their copyrighted materials from being stolen and republished online illegally.

The “new” Facebook: lists, updated chat, timeline, privacy settings, unfriending info and Google+?

Everyone knows that the new Facebook took some tips from the guys at Google. And to be perfectly honest, although I’m not thrilled with what Google’s got going on right now in terms of social media it’s nice to see two rivals at work.
