Blogs and Social Networks Google Services

goog

With Google Labs holding all Google’s Test Programs, I believe that Google is totally focused on perfecting what they have already, rather than spending the bulk of their time getting further into innovation. I see that adding to and enhancing what they do, instead of beginning a separate new project has propelled Google to the top 🙂

This is a very wise standpoint in life for individuals even, to focus on your calling and to be what you are good at. Not staying at the surface with the knowledge of many things, but to hone your talents in one arena and be King of that. Much like Google has become King of the Internet Search Engines.

Google seems called to to do this, they are great at it, very passionate, and they focused on the search, aspects of the search, and what other ideas that work hand in hand, together to enhance the search engine process. Google has many services, all connected to help create and add to their massive search capabilities. Ideas that work alongside the search engine foundation.

While Google Lively was an incredible project, this site was a bit separated and removed from the rest of the mass of services as it did not enhance or flavor the prime focus of the search engine. It was more of a stand alone “new deal”.

Let’s get a visual with this and say I have an intense set of Lego blocks and then I get this equally great set of KNex blocks (while each set is brilliant by itself, working together is a bit difficult, not impossible, but difficult). Having two Lego block sets or two KNex blocks sets will create many clever things, but all working together, built from the same core material, and acting to enhance the whole. Google is staying with the one type of block and focusing it’s energies to relate to (first and foremost) the search engine. To feed the master program with even more relevant terms, perfecting and enhancing it’s service to the Internet.

Google has specific search engines like a blog search, book search, news search, and patent search to assist in the faster location of individuals needs by sifting into categories to weed through the unnecessary items even before the search begins.

Google Groups area allows a space for users to create a site for like minded individuals or to join in discussions with groups already formed. There is literally a group formed on almost every topic imaginable, over a million separate groups for you to meet other group members.

Google Video and YouTube are Google’s video search and hold areas for users to upload, view, and share video entertainment of all types. Again, the specific search engine strictly for video is available through the main site.

Google has even created an area where all users can invent their own search engine! Design which sites are to be searched through your own search engine. This is most handy for organizations, groups, and especially for learning facilities or parents who would like the students to be able to use a proper search engine, but wish to regulate which sites or search terms are able to be located.

There is a Calendar, photos with Picasa, Google Docs for documents and presentations, Google Reader for your blogs and social networks and other sites for bookmarking, and iGoogle to keep your information all together on one site. To access the entire listing of all the services is quite easy, along the top right hand side of the Google site there is a listing of Web, Images, Maps, etc. The last link is “more” with a dropdown menu and another list ending with “even more”. Click on that to visit the entire list of services page. This huge hub page of holds the active services and the testing ideas as well under “Labs”.

Visiting the Google Labs section is quite interesting and a whole lot of fun. This allows it’s visitors to “play” with it’s newest designs before they are released as a set in stone service.

Some of the recent graduates of the Labs are very handy. Suggest is the newest search feature where Google gives suggestions while you type in a search term or keyword in the form of a dropdown as you type into the search bar. This addition gives you a shortcut to longer search terms and also may expand on your original ideas to take you where you need to be faster.

Google Transit is another recent graduate of the Labs to allow users to become much more acquainted with the public transportation in their cities and areas. Many people would like to use the public systems in the towns and have no idea where to begin. Transit is your answer.

GOOG411 is Google’s over the phone search for local businesses. Yet another free service to search for businesses in your area, but this time through the phone lines.

Chrome has been release from the Labs earlier than expected and is Google’s Browser extraordinaire. A free browser for Windows Vista/XP SP2. Chrome is a browser that combines a very simple design paired with Google technology to make the web safer, faster, and easier with an all in one box system. The instructional videos here on the Chrome page will get you ready in no time and gain you a thorough understanding of the newest service, the Chrome web browser.

From the Blogger updates of import and export abilities along with the future posting and newest additions of Reactions and other Google gadgets, to the management of your health files all in one place with Google Health, I would be surprised if you were searching for holding, filing, searching, or collection answers, that one of Google’s Services would not complete the puzzle for you.

Podcasting What R U Waiting For?

Podcasting is too cool 4 school actually and if you are missing the boat, well you better swim 4 it 🙂

To view a very informative post on Podcasting with Blog Talk Radio and ITunes visit www.BlogsandSocialNetworks.net

But for more on podcasting … here we goooo…

Let’s cover video podcasting in this post and first start out with how cool Windows Movie Maker is, that it is already on your computer probably if you have a Windows based system and it is quite complimentary (meaning free, of course, but also it compliments podcasting in that its creations can then become video or audio podcasts, neato).

I have a step by step video at YouTube.com/user/wavecritter on How To Windows Movie Maker if you care to view that one, or there are many more out there to get you informed on how to get going creating your own videos to turn into a podcast at YouTube just by uploading it onto your channel. YouTube calls your personal storage area/profile a channel because it is your area to let your friends and viewers watch your videos 🙂

Back to the easy, cheesy, lemon squeezy Windows Movie Maker, get into it, what R U waiting for? You too can capture your imagination for the World to see and enjoy 🙂 Play around and no worries.

Visit YouTube.com/blog for all of the YouTube updates and then YouTube.com/testtube for some total coolies with YouTube! You can also reach these sites by visiting your YouTube channel and clicking on community above on the tabs, awesome.

Onto one of the coolest free download audio tools out there Audacity.

A bit technical it seems at first, but never fear and no worries here, not near the learning curve of some other podcasting tools like Camtasia and others. I actually am making a How to Video on this Audacity as well that will soon be on YouTube 🙂

Friend Connect By Google

Reading the excitement out on the Internet about Connectability and Portable Data is all the buzz surrounding Google, Facebook, MySpace, Blogs and Social networks, Internet Marketers and more. Inviting friends and influencing people are all the current rage on social network sites, connecting all of this together is a huge job that Google is tackling with Friend Connect.

“Google Friend Connect integrates with contact lists for social networks like Facebook, orkut and Google Talk. This means users who join your site are instantly connected with friends who are already members, and can invite friends from other networks to visit. They can opt in to broadcasting their activities to friends in their social networks. A post to your message board, for example, can instantly be visible to people in multiple social networks, along with links leading to your site. These instant networks, combined with the wealth of OpenSocial gadgets, can form potent new online communities, very quickly and very easily.”

After reading the article and getting excited for Google yet again, I really started thinking about this concept. I think the benefit will be to the websites who use this application for certain, but (isn’t there always a but? 🙂 It will, in essence, be like a HUGE Twitter badge or widget on a website. Blogs and Social Networks are connecting in many ways today.

If you have multiple email accounts for instance, and merge them all together to be then forwarded to say Outlook Express. Well, then say you are an Internet Marketer who has several email accounts, and you decided to merge ALL That together! Hmmmm…

Now, what if you have 5 or 10 active social networks? That start to acquire a great deal of time from you. You have already mentally placed a priority system on the sites you like best so you visit them more often and consequently spend more time there. What if you merged all of the messages, chats, and content?

Hmmm…

It will be nice to jump from one to the other, have a “Hub” so to speak, but will it or would it be overwhelming for some? Or will it make life on the Internet much more simple having a one stop for your social information? I, personally, am eager to find out.

BLOGS AND SOCIAL NETWORKS – A REVIEW PART 3

Blogs and Social Networks in general are expanding and growing daily, scratch that, hourly. The amount of people reaching out for world wide friendship is amazing and exciting.

The first stop in our journey today will be to the video mogul of YouTube. Like the glamor and sparkle of the Las Vegas strip with the culture and information of the Museums, Hoover Dam, and The Grand Canyon, comedy like Ray Romano and Kevin James, shows and magic like Chris Angel and The Blue Man Group, YouTube has it all. Sign up, upload a video you created or just view the hundreds of thousands of videos already here. Join a group or enter a video contest, just broadcast yourself.

How about we visit the tops on the fun, chatty charts by taking a trip to the Twin Cities, MN, Greatest Shopping Mall Of America! IMVU!

IMVU is an outstanding, fun, digital, graphic image maker, and player site. You create a little “you” image, and dress up, buy items and clothes and hair styles and much more, take photos of the virtual “you” , go on a Ferris Wheel, in a cafe, disco, wherever the little “you” wants to play, get photographed, purchase items with credits, chat, engage, and virtually have the time of your Internet life! Missgreenbacks, Lucky, IMVUInc, and Charm are there to get you rolling and help your navigation! The Greatest Shopping Mall Of The Internet World awaits at IMVU.

Let’s Move along now, down the cobblestone streets of Amsterdam and join in on the group activities and artistic Rembrandt talents of the members of WetPaint Wiki. Get a community gathering started and become a sightseeing tour down the Amsterdam canal. Design graphics and flourishes that match your Wiki design with Paint Splatters. Wikis are websites that everyone can build together. It’s easy. Come to community fun and information spot, build a page, add a widget, leave your mark on the adventure of the Wiki!

Questing ever further into blogs and social networks we arrive, (and some say “finally”) at the Blogs and Social Networks dream adventure. The Tibet, if you will, of the day. Friendster is the highest peak to reach and the most tranquil, easy-going of the industry. The Friendster crew is always helpful and pleasant. Add Apps, Get Connected, Explore, and Search through the mountainous region that is Friendster. With a separate, but unified blogging city, Friendster creates a collective environment of exploration, fun, and friends.

Throughout the journey, the road less traveled or the highway to the blogging world, we notice the actual “road” is My BlogLog. An outstanding intersection of continuing highways and byways of interconnectedness. This is My BlogLog. It actually weaves together the blogs and social networks of today, melding them into the off ramps of tomorrow.

Getting and staying connecting in the blogs and social networks world on the Internet is an experience of a lifetime. Our pasts did not even include this awesome situational entertainment and friendship.
