New Apps Help Preserve Visual Memories

Digital imaging solutions company Ecce Terram, with headquarters in Atlanta, GA and Oldenburg, Germany, will introduce a new Facebook app named “Save Your Memories” at this month’s industry show 6Sight in New York City.

This step, and the introduction of a similar feature for the line of native mobile apps created by Ecce Terram for smartphones and tablet computers, is aimed at further simplifying and adding convenience to the way consumers save and share their photos.

At a glance, “Save Your Memories” automatically presents users with print order options for images newly uploaded to their Facebook albums or added to their mobile device camera rolls. The user is prompted to select which recently updated images should be ordered for print, using quick-select menu options which are based on the most commonly chosen selections.

“Save Your Memories” enables consumers to realize one of their main goals when using their mobile device or Facebook to store and share photos, according to Ecce Terram: to secure and preserve precious visual memories outside the digital sphere. After uploading new photos, Ecce Terram’s new “Save Your Memories” app offers convenient print order options right on the opening screen, for “All Images”, “Since Your Last Order”, “Last 30 Days”, or “Albums”.

“It’s all about peace of mind,” said Frank Simon, President, CEO and founder of Ecce Terram, and the company’s founder. “In today’s mobile world, the majority of consumers trust smartphones and Facebook with their digital photo collection. But phones break, or get lost or stolen.”

“What’s more, many people feel uncomfortable with putting all their digital photos in one social networking “basket”, Mr. Simon said. Ecce Terram’s new “Save Your Memories” app, he pointed out, answers the common need to securely preserve selected visual memories offline.

Ecce Terram, which started in Germany and is the creator of the “Photo2Lab Software Suite”, today is considered a pioneer of the digital imaging industry. “Five years ago, successful photo services providers were ready to take processing orders online when consumers sat down at a desktop computer,” said Mr. Simon.

“Today, you have to be ready to take an order the second after they take a snapshot with their iPhone or iPad, or when they update their photo timeline on Facebook.”

The “Save Your Memories” concept, Ecce Terram points out, is positioned to complement the company’s successful “Share your Photo Story” approach. A white-labeled “Share Your Photo Story” Facebook app, as well as social media and co-editing options featured in Ecce Terram’s Desktop Client and Online Client software, already enable consumers to jointly create and order photo products, for example by converting Facebook albums directly into presentable photo books.

Combined, the “Save Your Memories” and the “Share Your Photo Story” concepts answer photo services consumer needs and demands in a market that has rapidly shifted to mobile and social networking platforms. The added convenience of white-labeled solutions offered by Ecce Terram, the company believes, will help large photo services providers secure and retain market share and brand loyalty, and build and expand new channels.

Facebook Could Soon Have a ‘Dislike’ Button

Following recent speculation in the online industry, QueryClick comment on the news that Facebook have made a few changes to their Open Graph that could let users have the much wanted, ‘Dislike Button’.

At the recent F8 conference in September, a lot of publicity surrounded the announcements of some of Facebook’s biggest changes to date, such as Facebook’s new Timeline feature. However, this was not the only change to that users could experience, as developments have led to as a change in the Open Graph has opened up a whole lot of opportunities for users to express their opinions one their friends’ posts, say QueryClick.

Christopher Liversidge, QueryClick‘s Managing Director comments: “For a very long time, Facebook users have been able to ‘like’ their Facebook friends’ posts – this means that they could show their appreciation for something that a friend had posted on Facebook by hitting a ‘like’ button. But for as long as the like button has existed, users have been asking for a ‘dislike’ button, where they can show their disapproval or simply their negative feelings towards something they’ve posted. These recent changes to Facebook’s Open Graph have actually made it more possible for users to do this, thanks to Facebook’s new ‘Gestures’ feature, which follows their popular ‘verb any noun’ feature.

The ‘verb any noun’ feature gives users the chance to create their own actions, such as saying that they have ‘watched’ a particular movie, ‘listened’ to a song or alum or even ‘read’ a specific article online. While this may seem very different from ‘like’ and even ‘dislike’, this where ‘Gestures’ comes in because it gives the developers the power to create their own actions, such as ‘challenge’ and ‘cheer’, which means that a ‘dislike’ button may not seem that far away after all, say QueryClick.

Chris continues: “The ‘Gestures’ feature could really transform Facebook for users and developers, as it could open up so many possibilities for communicating with loved ones on the site. It would seem pretty logical that if developers can create buttons for specific actions, that a ‘dislike’ button could be within reach. While Facebook have yet to confirm that the ‘dislike’ button is to be added to the site, the ‘Gestures’ feature could lead to a new and different way of sharing information online, which is just fantastic.”

Facebook’s Smart Lists to Improve User Experience

Facebook have decided auto-generate relevant content for users, which could help improve the overall user experience, say QueryClick.

Earlier this month, Facebook announced that it was going to improve its lists feature by introducing so-called ‘smart lists’, a new feature which auto-generates lists of updates and contents for users. The update which is already in operation was designed to group together associated pieces of information such as status updates, photographs and links into the correct list, or category, and could help make finding specific information much easier on the site, say QueryClick.

Christopher Liversidge, QueryClick’s Managing Director comments: “The new ‘Smart list’ feature was designed with user comfort in mind because it helps Facebook users in creating special categories or lists on their news feed, based on their information. For example, if a user has put down what school or University they attended, and some of their Facebook friends who went to the same school or University do too, then a Smart List for that very establishment will be created. So , if a user says that they went to Oxford University, and then their friends Bill and Ben also confirm that they studied there, then a smart list called ‘Oxford University’ will be created, with the original user, Bill and Ben all on it.”

All in all, there will be four categories that make up the auto-generated smart lists, namely: Work, School, Family and City, which means that users will be able to streamline their news feed and be able to concentrate on the people and the subjects that mean the most to them on any given day. So if a user wants to try to find an old school friend, all they have to do is go their school’s smart list and scroll through what’s there, which will save time and effort, according to QueryClick.

Chris continues: “The addition of these smart lists will really make it so much easier to find relevant information in Facebook, as everything associated with a certain place, such as a school or a place of work have been handily put together, which means that users will find what they’re searching for quite quickly, when compared to searching for it manually through the site. Users can also choose to add their Facebook friends as either a close friend or an acquaintance to filter content further, and Facebook can even suggest users to add to lists, which not only makes using the site much easier than before, but also a lot more fun.”

Facebook Founder Calls For Lifting Of Age Restrictions, A Smart Move Says SEO Company Queryclick.com

Following news that Mark Zuckerberg thinks children 13 years and younger should be allowed access to social networks, SEO experts Queryclick.com suggest he’s taking a logical stance.

Star of the social networking field Facebook has been at the centre of controversy recently, thanks to the suggestion from the CEO that age restrictions should be removed.

Founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, has said he believes children ages 13 and younger should be allowed to access the social networking site for the benefit of their education.

Speaking during the New Schools Venture Fund’s Summit in California, Zuckerberg said he expected education to become more social in the future, in the same way already seen in health, retail and finance sectors.

At the summit, which explored innovation in education, the Facebook founder explained he was passionate about education reform. Zuckerberg was relaxed as he spoke about the subject with interviewer, and venture capitalist, John Doerr.

He claimed that letting younger children interact with social sites could prove beneficial for them in the long term. SEO experts Queryclick.com said the young star of the social scene has a valid point, although he may find it difficult to win over his dissenters. “Social media has really exploded in the last few years, making it obvious to any doubters that the medium is here to stay,” said a spokesperson.

“Many young children are already very savvy when it comes to social networking, but many retain massive security concerns, which were born in an earlier era of the internet.”

As it currently stands, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) mandates that websites that collect information about users (like Facebook does) aren’t allowed to sign on anyone under the age of 13.

Bing’s Move Towards Social Networking Integration Is A Smart Move, Says Seo Company Queryclick.com

Microsoft’s Bing has been trying to chip away at Google’s prime position in a number of ways, and now the search engine has revealed a new social integration strategy sure to get industry experts talking.

As an increasing number of web users turn to social networks for information and breaking news, search engines are being forced to reassess their traditional methods of ranking. This means that search engine results are changing, and the introduction of ties with Twitter and Facebook indicates Bing is embracing the new order.

The search engine will now offer real-time Twitter updates in Bing News, as well as in other SERPS, as a way to offer searchers up-to-date and breaking news in their search results. This way, the search engine hopes it will allow users to keep on top of trending topics without bypassing the search engine altogether.

This is the kind of move search engines need to be making if they want to engage with a new audience, claims SEO company Queryclick.com. A spokesperson said: “Integration like this is the best way search engines have of safeguarding their position as the top place for searchers.

“As social media channels become stronger, search engines face the danger of losing younger generations. By offering users the chance to make their searches a little more social, Bing could help tempt them to stay on one, centralised engine, rather than choosing to search within their favourite social networks.”

Additionally, Bing has announced a new partnership with Facebook, which will see Bing’s entertainment results instantly shared to Facebook users, if they are signed in to both. This feature will utilise Bing’s liked Results functionality and will allow users to share news of their favourite films, artists, musicians and TV shows to all of their Facebook friends.

The Bing and Facebook integration will also offer an overview tab that will allow Facebook users to update their statuses directly from the Bing entertainment results.

By keeping users in the search results, Bing could create an advantage for itself, said search engine optimisation experts explained. “If Bing can persuade its searchers to update their Facebook pages without having to leave the SERPs, it will have achieved something of a coup.

Risks Of Using Social Networking In Business

Social Networking sites such as Facebook, Myspace and Youtube have gained popularity among the younger population. Sites such as LinkedIn, Plaxo and Xing have followed quickly in their footsteps to provide the business friendly social network opportunities.

More recently, companies large and small are exploring ways to use social network site to support and improve sales (Youtube), to find new employees and business partners (LinkedIn) or to monitor their performance and respond to critics (Yelp and increasingly Facebook and Twitter).

However, for information security experts commissum.com, businesses looking to embrace these social media channels and tools in their business need to understand and calculate the benefits and risks before engaging them.

To consider the risks of using social media for your business consider the following:

Be careful using social media for employment vetting purposes for the same reasons that employers should not ask about religion, preferences, age, race etc.

Once a business takes the step of using social media, they are opening up a channel that in most cases you have very limited control of; in fact almost handing over control to the public. How would the business deal with both fair and unfair criticisms and opinions expressed on social media websites and how could its reputation be affected?

Would your employees know what business information can be disclosed on social media websites and could the business therefore be at risk of involuntary information leakage?

Could information on the size, structure of the business and operational details such as IT infrastructure details be used for initial data gathering activities for targeted attacks?

Could the business IT infrastructure be vulnerable to malicious software downloaded from social network sites?

And lastly consider whether the business should monitor the activities of its employees to ensure that security is maintained and resources are not being wasted by social networking activities.

“The risks of using social media encompass all aspects of the business; legal, employment, technical, operational and reputation”, according to a commissum spokesperson.

Bing’s Integration of Facebook ‘Likes’ Is The Next Phase In Social Search, Claims SEO Experts QueryClick

True to form, the world of social media shows little sign of slowing down in terms of infiltrating every aspect of our lives; search engines being no exception.

While Google laid bare plans to include relevant content from social media sources such as YouTube, Flickr and Twitter, Microsoft’s own search engine – Bing – has been preparing its move into the realm of social search with a much touted tie with Facebook.

Now Facebook “liked results” will become integrated with everyday Bing searches which Bing’s development team described as “part of a longer journey” into an improved cohesion between search and the social sphere.

Commenting on Bing’s inclusion of Facebook ‘liked results’, a spokesperson for Edinburgh-based SEO experts QueryClick said:

“QueryClick are not surprised to see Bing announce a tie with Facebook in a bid to keep shoulder to shoulder with Google following the launch of the latter’s real time, social media search results some 18 months ago.

“The ability to ‘like’ search results and see those that your friends have ‘liked’ is another step closer to a much more personalised search experience that pulls in the activities and opinions of an individual’s social circle.

“It’s also highly likely that personalised search will lead to a much greater emphasis on personalised advertising which has already been seen on Facebook.”

The introduction of the ‘Bing Bar’ – a simple tool bar function – will also serve to blur the line between search engine and social media platform even further.

Google’s Decision To Include Social Media Updates In SERPs Is The Latest Move Towards A Greater Emphasis On The Social Sphere, Says Search Engine Optimisation Experts QueryClick

In true Google style, barely a month goes by without the search giant making a tweak here or a change there to its algorithm.

While some changes are kept under lock and key to prevent spammers and unethical SEO practices degrading the quality of search results, other tweaks are allowed to create something of a stir.

Google’s most recent announcement regarding its inclusion of social media results in SERPs was one such change that – quite appropriately – caused sites like Twitter to get all in a flutter.

Working by aggregating content from social networking sites such as YouTube, Twitter and MySpace, the move is yet another step towards a bold blend of search and social; all under one roof.

Commenting on Google’s decision to make its search results richer in social media-related content, a spokesperson for SEO experts QueryClick said:

“QueryClick’s SEO predictions for 2011 contained a big focus on the move to mobile search as well as a greater emphasis on social media so it’s not surprising that Google have taken the step to introduce more social media-specific content in their SERPs.

“In terms of the benefits of this change for search engine optimisation, there’s now improved opportunities for sites which are under performing or in highly competitive verticals, jumping onto the first page – albeit temporarily – if their social media output relates to search terms.”

SEO Experts QueryClick Welcome The Rise In Professional Usage of Social Media

The consistent growth of social media interaction throughout society has been a central topic of technological discourse over the past few years. The more recent uptake of the platform as a base from which to broaden business, as well as social connectivity, has become the latest development in the evolution of the social media phenomenon.

A study published by Trendstream on Tuesday demonstrates the progressive adoption of social media by businesses as a key tool in their inventory, equipping them more effectively and further enabling them to better communicate their message. The research, as part of the wider Global Web Index project, purports to illustrate the evolutionary shift in social networking over the past 18 months.

It is now believed that approximately 60% of Fortune 500 companies have created a Twitter account; almost double of the figure for the previous year. At the consumer end, research by ExactTarget stated that 40% of a survey had expressed their approval of a company or brand via Facebook in order to receive promotions and discounts.

A QueryClick.com spokesperson commented on the positive findings of the report:

“From the research carried out it is clear that the growing trend for B2C interaction via sites such as Facebook and Twitter has been bolstered at both ends by the behavioural modifications which have taken place.”

According to the findings of Trendstream, the advertising and marketing industry are leading the way in their involvement in real-time social media activity. Behind them – and by some distance – comes IT, retail, healthcare and the financial services, all of whom have embraced the business potential offered by social media activity.

Whilst the participation of the study respondents in real-time social networking and microblogging increased by some 20% over the time-scale, contribution and engagement with blogging and other static online dialogues decreased significantly. Blog writing has fallen by 4%, while forum contribution has undergone an 11% decrease.

The move away from the creation platforms (blogs and forums) to real-time networks mirrors the move into the world of immediate updates and constant communication by professional individuals and firms. One insightful statistic provided by the Trendstream report sheds further light on the connection between these factors: that the increase in links to company news stories was bettered only by the rise in the upload and browsing of personal photos.

Bing Making Friends With Facebook Is A Wise Choice For Microsoft’s Search Engine Claims Edinburgh SEO Company Queryclick.com

Microsoft’s bid at the search engine market has been slowly chipping away at Google’s stupendous lead, but Bing still has a long way to go before it could have any dreams of clinching the top spot.

However, a massive upgrade to the decision engine could see Bing with a new selection of offerings that will draw young, savvy searchers its way. One of the biggest changes are the way the engine will return some searches with less of a traditional results page and more an interactive app that allows searchers to quickly modify the results. The other is the inclusion of a social search feature.

By teaming up with Facebook, Bing will look through recommendations made by your friends in the aim of returning more relevant and personalised results to your searches.

A spokesperson for SEO company Queryclick.com said this was a good choice for the company, and one that could pay off for it in the future. “When you look back at the way the social market has grown in the last few years, it’s clear to see that more and more people are turning to the internet as a way to interact with friends as well as a way to find information.

“By combining search results with a social aspect, Bing could prove attractive to web users who spend the majority of their time on Facebook – and there are plenty of those out there.”

The new feature is the result of a deal between the decision engine and the leading social networking site. Providing users have recently logged into their Facebook account, Bing will automatically recognise their account and search through all of the content associated friends have chosen to click a ‘Like’ button for.

The brand power of Facebook could be a huge asset to the decision engine and the partnership could also see Bing able to offer something new to the search market. While Google has also attempted to tap into the social networking market, its success has been nowhere near that of Facebook, and by partnering with the biggest social networking site of the time Bing may have the power to shake the foundations of Google’s prime position.

Yahoo Says It’s Focused on The Future, SEO Company Queryclick.com Says It Should Keep Searching

With the search sphere becoming ever more social, Yahoo’s CEO Carol Bartz promises the struggling company still has its eye on the future – despite falling profits and rumoured downsizing. SEO experts Queryclick.com claim Yahoo is wise to keep an eye on the future, but shouldn’t ignore search.

Last week, the CEO denied rumours that the company – whose stocks were lower at the close of business last Tuesday than they were at the beginning of the year – is considering merging with AOL. Instead she claimed that Yahoo is focused on the future, and that many of the issues the company faces are image based, and only a problem for technological and financial centres.

She said the average user, outside of Silicon Valley and New York, knew what the company stood for, and that part of her role was to educate people that the company is not a Google, it is a Yahoo.

A spokesperson for SEO company Queryclick.com commended Bartz for her stance, and suggested this was the right way for her to approach the criticism. They said: “Yahoo has been in what looks like a difficult position for a long time, but much of this is related to how well the company performs in comparison to Google.

“If you take the Mountain View giant out of the equation, you see a company that still has a lot of things going for it; brand loyalty, a search partnership with Bing and a lot of valuable user data.”

It could be these three areas that will see the company drag up its market value and re-establish its place among the big boys of the online world.

In the wake of the news that Facebook will launch its own alternative to email, Bartz also hit out at those questioning Yahoo’s ability to stay relevant in the face of the continuing online revolution. Speaking at the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco, Bartz claimed that rather than simply follow in Facebook’s targeted-ad-footsteps – as while Yahoo has a lot of user data, it is not aggregated in the same way – Yahoo would be concentrating on making sure publishers were able to offer users the right kind of content.

Facebook Mobile Developments Benefit Both Business and Consumer According to SEO Experts QueryClick.com

Facebook Yesterday launched a series of developments to its mobile operations in a bid to capitalise on the growth in mobile internet access. The increased market presence of internet via mobile is especially important for the expansion of Facebook in the developing world, where the nouvelle connected are typically leapfrogging desktop access and moving straight into the world wide mobile web.

The primary improvement has been made in relation to the recent development of Facebook Places, a tool which allows Facebook members to share their whereabouts with other Facebook Friends. The revelation of Facebook Deals has heralded a new era in the interaction of mobile users with participating retail or hospitality venues.

Speaking on the increased proliferation and significance of mobile internet access, SEO company QueryClick.com said:

“While desktop search has actually fallen approximately 15% YOY, mobile search traffic has risen some 247% over the course of the past 12 months. In this respect, businesses cannot afford to ignore mobile web access, especially ‘mobile’ mobile web access, in which users on the move are now able to locate the best deals near their ever-changing locations.”

By ‘checking-in’ to one of many stores, restaurants, and other businesses, users are rewarded with relevant vouchers, discounts, and deals based on their location. The vouchers received by users are then presented to the nearby venue in return for a discounted service or product. For consumers this strategy obviously offers a valuable reward for their online participation, whilst businesses are able to promote their services on a new level, as well as keeping track of their success throughout this marketing scheme.

SEO Experts QueryClick.com are well aware of the benefits of data tracking for the development of any business, and praised the capacity of the Deals tool to track their claim rates, and thus determine the relative success of their ‘Deal’.

Facebook ‘Questions’ Adds New Dimension To Search, Claims UK SEO Experts Queryclick

Shortly after hitting the 500 million user mark last week, Facebook announced a new change of direction which will see the social media giant make its first move into the search market.

The new feature – called Questions – will see users able to ask for answers, opinions and advice from a community of fellow users.

Despite similar facilities being available via Twitter, Ask.com and Yahoo Answers, UK SEO experts QueryClick believe Questions still adds a new dimension to search as a company spokesperson explains:

“Facebook hasn’t broken new ground by providing a service where users can ask a community of people for answers. What it has done, however, is created an environment where those asking questions have access to 500 million potential answers.

“The enduring popularity of Facebook will undoubtedly see a large number of people take part in Questions which will deplete the amount of traffic and number of page views currently racked up by similar sites such as Yahoo Answers.”

Coinciding with the relaunch of Ask.com, Facebook Questions marks a noticeable turning point in the history of search with increasing emphasis on answers from humans rather than computers.

Although Facebook Questions has not be highlighted as a threat to current industry leader and pioneer, Google, SEO web design experts QueryClick still believe that internet users should expect a shift in the way we approach online search:

“When the internet first began growing in popularity about 15 years ago, people were happy to scour the web looking for answers to their questions and quickly began favouring search engines over people when it came to solving queries quickly.

Facebook Changes Praised By SEO Experts Queryclick.com Following The Installation Of A ‘Panic Button’ as Recommended by CEOP

Following months of negotiations between Facebook and the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP), the social media site has agreed to the provision of a panic button to all users, specifically targeting those aged between 13 – 18.

Facebook have made a raft of sweeping changes recently, from the closing of its online gift shop, to the most recent addition of the CEOP backed child safety application. The social networking site had previously been resistant to the panic button feature, insisting that it already had sufficient reporting systems in place.

CEOP has recommended the inclusion of additional measures such as the panic button since November 2009. The feature, which has also received the backing of 44 police chiefs across Britain, is an opt-in service which will be promoted most heavily amongst the 13-18 age group.

Due to the optional nature of the service, a campaign is to be launched by Facebook and CEOP in a bid to raise awareness of the application, as well as the significance of online safety. This campaign involves the display of an automated message on the homepage of users within the most vulnerable age group.

This will be reinforced by a CEOP-Facebook information page which hopes to further educate youngsters of the dangers associated with social networking. By appealing to teenagers through the coverage of topics of interest such as music, celebrities and exams, the page hopes to reach as large an audience as possible.

SEO experts QueryClick.com have welcomed this approach, with the belief that the offerings of popular content will draw in the targeted traffic. One QueryClick spokesperson explained that:

“By appealing to younger Facebook members through their potential areas of interest, and by specifically targeting the 13-18 age group via automated messages, this campaign will contribute greatly towards the improved online safety of Facebook, as well as the level of confidence in parents with regards to their children’s online activity.”

Facebook have cited the reason for the closure as a result of the need to focus their attention on developing the more popular features of their site including, the news feed, photos, the ‘like’ button, and Facebook advertising. In particular, it is the advertising aspect which PPC experts QueryClick.com believe will go from strength to strength in the coming months.

Government Looks to Facebook Users for Ideas on Spending Cuts

With 23 million members in the UK alone, the social media site could provide Ministers with a wide ranging source of suggestions from the public with regards to the proposed spending cuts. The growing presence of the political world on social networking is a logical step forward according to SEO experts QueryClick.com.

The ‘Spending Challenge’ profile set up by the government has already received some 50,000 responses to their invitation for spending cut ideas. On the page, users are able to discuss spending priorities, offer their views and vote on their favourite suggestions.

It is proposed that the most worthy solutions will be further analysed by Treasury officials, in addition to the Chancellor George Osborne set to meet some of the contributors to the page to discuss their opinions.

This move signifies a turnaround in the view held of social networking sites by Prime Minister David Cameron. Prior to his election into Downing Street, the PM was deemed to be dismissive of this form of communication. Now however, the government is to make Facebook its primary means of public communication on issues of the economy.

Earlier this week, Prime Minister Cameron spoke with Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg to discuss a possible partnership with the site. On a recent visit to London, Zuckerberg was impressed by the level of public oriented online sites created in Britain after attending the London Facebook developer event. One particular project which appealed to Mr Zuckerberg, and one which he discussed with the PM, was the ‘Together We Can’ initiative. It offers communities in the UK a chance to influence the development of their local area.

The idea of integrating politics into the world of social networking, and subsequently creating a series of dialogues between ministers and voters, is a logical and inevitable step forward according to SEO consultants QueryClick.com. The increasing usage of social media, and Facebook in particular, cannot afford to be ignored by governments seeking to better understand and converse with a greater majority of the population.

Social media experts QueryClick.com believe that this process will vastly increase traffic levels on Facebook, and will even tempt first time users to the site. With such an influx of users, the SEO benefits will be strongly felt in terms of the traffic increase, frequently updated information, and the huge potential for information sharing across sites.

Yahoo/Facebook Deal Brings a Level of Consistency to Social Networking According to SEO Specialists QueryClick.com

In an age when many users are active on a multitude of social networking sites, it makes sense that steps have been taken to link Yahoo and Facebook together in a bid to create a more efficient and cohesive web of networks. SEO experts QueryClick.com see this as a clever move by both sides, and is aware of the potential benefits of such a deal.

Yahoo/Facebook Deal Brings a Level of Consistency to Social Networking According to SEO Specialists QueryClick.com

Yahoo and Facebook have recently announced a site tie-up, reasserting further their relationship in the process.

The dealings between the two began last year with Yahoo’s integration of Facebook’s Connect, a service which allows one to log-in to other services using one’s Facebook ID, as well as allowing users to view what their friends have been reading, watching, and enjoying on the social networking site, and to subsequently receive recommendations from such friends.

Speaking of Yahoo’s integration of Facebook’s Connect, Vice President of Yahoo Jim Stoneham explained that:

“You will be able to see your friends’ activities on Yahoo! and share Yahoo! content…directly on your Facebook stream.”

With the extension of the partnership, users with a presence on Yahoo and Facebook have the ability to update both sites simultaneously as the information on one site is automatically transferred to the other.

QueryClick.com believes that such cohesion and consistency enhances the social networking experience, creating comprehensively accurate profiles for users.
