This is an old video… but, it is still funny and still relevant so I am sharing it with you guys.
This is a funny but real wedding representing the new social networking generation. The groom by the name "Locuester" in YouTube changes his relationship status in his Facebook account and wrote in his Twitter status before even kissing his bride. Although he didn’t tell his bride about his plan, he had her phone ready, to be handed over at that time to do the same.
Happy fifth birthday Twitter!
Five years ago, today was the day the first tweet was sent. when @jack, @ev, @Biz and a small team started it they didn’t know it will get this big and grow to a team of more than 400 full time workers.
but how will it survive?
@Biz wrote in the official Twitter blog:
Twitter users now send more than 140 million Tweets a day which adds up to a billion Tweets every 8 days—by comparison, it took 3 years, 2 months, and 1 day to reach the first billion Tweets. While it took about 18 months to sign up the first 500,000 accounts, we now see close to 500,000 accounts created every day.
Twitter and Facebook are considered to be the vehicle of current day social networking. Although some, after watching is birthday video, suspect Twitter might be off-track when communication between general public. The video focuses on portraying Twitter as a platform of following celebrities rather than being a social network. Watch the video and decide if it is more about who you follow than what you share!
In an attempt to retain it’s work force and lure more talents, Google Inc has announced 10% raise to its 23,000 employees. Google has faced increasing number of it’s talents leaving for better paid jobs in startup companies. Reversing the trend of being considered Silicon Valley’s hottest job destination, Google has seen Facebook and other Internet firms poaching its staff.
Start-ups companies and private companies like Facebook can recruit much easily as they are yet go public. They can also lure workers with pre-IPO stock. It is found that such companies offer an average annual salaries of $120,000 for engineers.
Previously it was Google in the poaching end – grabbing workers from Yahoo and Microsoft. Now, with its pace of growth slowing, growing firms are snatching the Google workforce. It is not that Google has stopped hiring. Google added some 3,600 people last year alone. Google’s latest pay raise indicates that the management believes in retaining employees than hiring new employees.
