Finally, a straight forward presentation on Facebook’s mind blowing and wicked Open Graph (announced at its “f8″ developers’ conference). This one is readable and understandable by non-geek standards and we owe it to Quentin Mahe from Saint@RKCR/Y&R.
It’s about connecting the whole web together… socializing it all through Facebook – of course. In a word: making Facebook the first ever web glue !

Search industry jargon might seem scary to you but guess what, I’m aiming to make it as accessible as possible to the general public.
See how you read the article I just wrote for Search Engine Watch: Macroglossa’s Visual Search Engine Fails To Meet Basic Expectations (Search Marketing)
I’ll be doing more and more of these so if you want to start understanding what it’s all about and get the latest news, watch this space !

Take a picture of your “Me-Time” and enter the competition to win a luxury weekend break for two, says Bingo Reviewer, the UK online bingo review site that I told you about last week.
Yes, THAT site which just turned totally utterly über social when it launched its redesigned look… Those guys are striking hard and fast. And you’re not dreaming.
The competition is open to all UK residents over the age of 18; prizes include a weekend break for two at the City Inn Hotel location of the winner’s choice in Britain, and an iPod nano. Just snap your “Me-Time” and you’re on !
A fabulous idea, especially since, much to my amazement, I was told that about 99.9% of Bingo players are women. Richard Sharp, the site owner surely knows how to treat the ladies (but hey, you could be a man too and benefit just the same!). “We… know that nearly all [our visitors] are hard working women and mums who love to play bingo and socialise online as a great way to unwind of an evening. Quite simply, our site is all about that rare ‘me-time’. We wanted to celebrate the re-launch and reward our visitors, by offering them a way to interact and share what is ‘me-time’ for them,” Sharp said.
For more details or to enter the competition, visit Competitions on Bingo Reviewer, and submit your ’me-time’ photo. Alternatively, check out also Bingo Review on Facebook and Twitter to get your updates.
Closing date for entries is midnight on 31st May, 2010.
Good luck !
PS: at HushPlush Bubbles, we surely like me-time AND plush places, aye aye !
