Blogs and Social Networks Updates!

We wanted to list some of the coolest of updates on the best of Blogs and Social Networks and Internet related sites! Tonights show is going to go into detail on all the updates at our favorite Blogs and Social Networks sites and some other related networking sites :)

Listen into our Updates Show or follow some of the links below:

First is Google :) GMail to be precise! Find out what has been keeping the GMail team busy by following this link:

To access the "what's new" at GMail Labs click the "Labs Tab" in the GMail settings while logged into your GMail account :)

This little blurb is found at the top and I thought it important to print it here as well:

"Gmail Labs: Some crazy experimental stuff."
"Gmail Labs is a testing ground for experimental features that aren't quite ready for primetime. They may change,break or disappear at any time.
If (when) a Labs feature breaks, and you're having trouble loading your inbox, there's an escape hatch. Use" Just in case anyone needed it :)

Buttons to Enable or Disable are listed right next to the desired new features (last check there was 42 current lab choices at GMail Labs).

Stevie uncovered the newness at MySpace as she went digging for the cool new features there and we will go into that bag of goodies on the show :), a podcasting "shout out" style Blog Social Network, has some great 2009 updates! Utterli has group calling, video processing improvements, an Utterli Desktop Application for Amazon Web Services site. Check out more on the show or visit the Utterli Blog. is a brilliant one of a kind Health Social network that is in need of partners. As far as we see out there on the net, there isn't anything in the way of a competitive site, so investors check this one out :) has some awesome new updates like the collaborative annotations where you can invite friends to also add speech bubbles, notes, and spotlights to your videos :) Listen into the show for more or follow the link below to the YouTube Blog:

Link for information on watching YouTube videos with Windows Mobile and Nokia S60 phones. is still as cool as ever! The Interactive magazine - wiki - blog and article categorizer - super site! Named as one of the fastest growing sites by Nielsen, Zimbio is rocking the net :) Check out more updates on Zimbio at the company wiki:

The biggest updates are a pruning really of some awesome ideas that are taking up a bit more time and space and not as needed as all that at present. Great ideas need to shed to skin along the way sometimes and Zimbio has chosen well:
