Social job hunter app Silp, absorbs over 700,000 users in just 12 days

Finding a job has always been a problem in our economy, so Slip is trying to make it easier for all of us. With this in mind, online job hunting networks are always a good way to find a job, but what if you could find one via your friends contacts?  Well with Slip, you now can. The whole idea behind slip, is to use your Facebook’s friends work connections to land you a job. Not only will this help you find a job, it will also help employers find more detailed information about potential employees. So whether you join Slips 700,000 plus network of contacts, or stick to the old fashion route, make sure you look over your Facebook page, as you don’t want your future employer looking at what you did last night.

Court rules, that your allowed to share your friends Facebook page with the feds

 

Facebook Page

A gangster’s Facebook page in Bronx was accessed by the police, via one of his Facebook “Friends”. The defendants lawyers claimed that it violated his privacy, and was accessed with unrighteous means. Judge Pauley III ruled that it didn’t violate his privacy.  This changes future court cases, as from now on your allowed to help the feds take down one of your Facebook  “Friends”. Hopefully, though you won’t have any criminal friends to help prosecute.

App.net (the new Twitter) has reached its goal with Kickstarter, at half a million dollars

App.net Kickstarter fundraising

Is App.net overcoming twitter? Could this the part like what happened when Facebook overtook Myspace? In my opinion the answer is yes, as the internet has decided to cast its vote in favor by giving App.net 500 grand of fundraising. The differences between Twitter and App.net are very slim and huge at the same time. App.net has offered the internet a paid service which provides you the ability to tweet with up to 256  characters (Twitter is only 140). However, the real game changer is that App.net focuses on its users and not advertisers (you heard me right, no ads!). To me personally I think the added cost is going to hurt users more than having an open idea, but prove me wrong App.net, lets see what your made of.
