Tonight I visited the Social Media Club at Incontro. A nice evening with lots of talk about social media and different ideas on how to use it in an even better way.

Two months ago I wrote about Google Places versus Facebook Places. Facebook Places has been gradually activated around the world and today the beast came to Sweden. So say goodbye to your dear Gowalla and Foursquare apps, because this will be one of the most used applications of 2011, whether you like it or not.
Google are certainly not resting on their laurels. A few days ago they announced a preview of Google Places API, about the same time that Facebook released write access to Facebook Places. I can smell a hairy fight coming up between the giants, but hopefully the winner will be the best one for users and developers.
Craig Ulliott is a web developer from Philadelphia. About a month ago, he developed an addon for the popular site Facebook. Facebook is the second most visited social networking website on the web with over 28 million members. However, Craig didn’t quite expect the success of his creation. Attracting over one million users in less than 30 days, it is now one of the most popular applications on Facebook.
If Ajax was the most overused and misunderstood web term of 2005, I would guess that Web 2.0 is the equivalent for 2006. I see it everywhere and I hear everyone talk about it, but most seems to miss the point anyway. There are Web 2.0 companies popping up everywhere and web sites are flooded with mirrored logos and other trendy graphics, without any real sense of coherence.
