What a difference three months makes

In April, I sat down with Bob Barker and talked about the kind of social and online marketing platforms that I use. Over that time period to now some of it has changed:

  • The biggest change was the close-down of Fastladder by Japanese firm Livedoor which left me feeling bereft. I now use Newsblur – one thing I will say about this search is that there seems to be a demise in RSS readers beyond Google Reader which I do not think is particularly healthy or productive
  • Newsblur has its own iOS device client which is ok, this has replaced FavShare on my mobile devices
  • I moved to the Twitter client on my iPhone and the iPad away from m.twitter.com
  • Weixin now has the more western friendly name WeiChat on the Apple iOS app store
