This week in Social Media…

The Weekly World News is reporting that Facebook will end on July 15th, 2012. Really WWN? We know their stock is tanking ($27.72 per share) since going public on May 18th, but saying Facebook will end? Despite all the lawsuits, and people complaining, I’m sure the Social Media giant will continue to live (even though it’s recent outage on 5/31 slowed down 1000’s of users). http://weeklyworldnews.com/headlines/27321/facebook-will-end-on-july-15th/

Google will unveil it’s “Next Dimension” of maps. I’m thinking Google will add some new 3D features to it’s already impressive maps. Perhaps they are gearing up for Apple’s version of Maps, coming soon. Speaking of Google Maps, have you played with Google Wonders yet? http://www.google.com/culturalinstitute/worldwonders/

Speaking of the iPhone, Netflix rolled out an updated version of the app for iOS devices. Still no HD streaming, but Netflix did add multi language support, a new player UI and some general performance improvements. I haven’t played with it yet, but judging from the pictures, it’s a welcomed improvement.

Let’s end things with a Social Media quote. This week’s quote is from Laura Fitton, Founder, onefourty.com.
