Sneak preview of next release of OrSiSohttp://orsiso.com


Just 2 weeks after OrSiSo’s launch they are now ready with their next release. OrSiSo have listened to their fans, beta users, & in paricular ReadWriteWeb’s mini review. The release is due to be available now.

To begin, for those keenly utlising twitter, OrSiSo have upgraded OrSiSo’s Twitter interface.

All the most asked for features have been added including; * · Search * · Multiple columns * o Direct Messages * o Replies * o Friends * o +search columns * · Filter by closeness * · Display twitpics directly in the UI * · Refresh on demand

Secondly, the social media tool application developer has made changes to the navigation with the aim to make it easier to move between the powerful features of OrSiSo. The company realizes there is still work to be done and over the coming releases they will focus on making all the functions more intuitive to navigate.

Finally, OrSiSo is working on a Social “Radar” view… that will give the user a totally new way of overlooking his/her social universe! More details on this will be released soon. OrSiSo is now on Twitter: http://twitter.com/orsiso

social networks new GOLD – market research

Now will people become more PRIVATE in facebook !!

Gay or straight, your Facebook is their fortune

FACEBOOK is planning to exploit the vast amount of personal information it holds on its 150 million members by creating one of the world’s largest market research databases.

In an attempt to finally cash in on the social networking site, once valued at $US15 billion ($23.6 billion), it will soon allow multinational companies to selectively target its members in order to research the appeal of new products. Companies will be able to pose questions to specially selected members based on such intimate details as whether they are single or married and even whether they are gay or straight.


The company, which has struggled to make money from advertising, has been demonstrating the benefits of its new instant polling tool to business leaders at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

Citizens of the (virtual) world – itsReal

Barrack Obama in his speech in Germany – Heralded – People of the World, we are all citizens of the world he said.

Connecting to people all over the world is becoming more real everyday and technologies that are spawning within and from virtual worlds make these connections tangible and REAL.

The hype that surrounded Second Life has diminished – hype can last for so long, however because of the hype entrepreneurs the life blood of business innovation, have seized the opportunities that Second Life offered and are now delivering platforms, applications and services that lead to global citizens working intimately together across distances that previously were unimaginable.

Fully animated avatars that have been perceived as impostors, pretenders of who they really are, are being replaced with Fully Animated Avatars of who you really are, if in business then who you are on LinkedIn, if more social, then who you are on Facebook. One such platform is Twinity

It is now time for Business, corporates companies all over the world to realize that Virtual World Technology is Real, Virtual Worlds coupled with Web 2.0 social applications and existing technologies are allowing for connectivity that could mean less travel, less cost, less time away from families, less harm to the environment, even less fatigue.

I recently was told of how IBM’s implementation of virtual worlds within IBM had achieved greater collaboration and I can only conclude that this has lead to alot less expenditure by IBM and decisions made faster, without the need to travel away from love ones.

Victor Keegan of The Guardian wrote an article titled We’ll all be citizens of the virtual world he concluded with….

Virtual worlds are only just beginning. During a period of financial collapse and worries about global warming, they could prove an ideal safe haven.

I suggest to you virtual wolds have begun – time is now for business to embrace and not wait.

You can be a real citizen in a Virtual World.

facebook my new business companion – itsReal

It has been almost a year since i wrote this entry, FaceBook Addiction is Growing vs Being a Business Drone in LinkedIn, and 12 months later I find that the then Addiction to facebook, has evolved instead into being, facebook my reliable business companion.

facebook managers to meld very human needs for being entertained while being social online whilst also helping members to be effective and professional to new friends & new clients around the world, LinkedIn remains the stiff business social network where u feel as though you must wear a tie every time you log in. Some of linkedIn’s ice is melting but i doubt that it will ever find the idealized green pastures that facebook offers.

facebook’s new look – which again users get to choose which version they want to work with, is comfortable to use and likable – only about 3 months ago i learnt where the biggest value for members lies – and that is in the newsfeeds from friends. It has now become a regular daily event seeing what my facebook circle and their friends are up to – strangely at the beginning of my facebook journey – i rec’d an email from a biz contact in Australia that warned me about the content i was adding as it was turning up on their news feeds and they actually called my excited postings – SPAM – i think they un-friended me.

Reality shows that the amount you put into facebook – whether social or business, results in what you get out of the experience – it is truly a delight to meet my friends in REAL social occasions and have them comment on what i still excitedly add to facebook every single day…. but Twinity is just around the corner (wink)

FAST Company outpaces its competitors and enters social media but what about twinity ? – itsReal

APLINK is a sometimes frequent reader of FAST Company Magazine, this has been a magazine I recognized long ago for its attention to fast moving startups along with Red Herring, these two magazines helped shape some of my thinking today…but do we need yet another network – with Fast Companies market standing would it have been better to go to bed with LinkedIN or the popular and fun Business Social Network FACEBOOK..
without sounding too optimistic – maybe their impact of this news could have been greater if they developed a community in a virtual world like twinity – now that’s a FAST idea from APLINK….
