2 New Twitter Services: WeFollow & Tweet Top

wefollow

Within the last 2 days I heard about 2 new services that is very useful so I thought I would share.

The first one is We Follow (wefollow.com) and it’s been called the new Twitter yellow pages.

The service is a tag based service and shows the top twitter user on each tag/category based on their followers number, so it’s a directory made by the people for the people.

We Follow was created by non other than Digg founder and power tweeter @kevinrose.

I (@GuruOfSales) made 2nd position under #sales and the 51st position under #blogger, not bad for the “Guru” of “sales” 🙂

 

You can add yourself to be in the directory by tweeting the following:

The second service I heard about it this morning when I got a @reply from @ShaneGibson ( something about the Canadian water makes Canadians really smart!) That he made second after me under the category “sales” in all of Twitter. Woot! to us 🙂

TweetTop.com was created by @jordanwillms as the alltop.com of Twitter. I’ve personally found and followed at least 20 new interesting people through TweetTop today.

Cool Twitter Backgrounds By Twitterimage.com

twitterimage

I think that this is the first time I’m blogging on a Sunday in quite a long time, but I had this post drafted a while back and I did promise a friend to post it as soon as I have my Twitter background up and running so everyone can see it.

My Friend is Hugh Briss, and one of his companies is www.TwitterImage.com (Hugh also offer other cool designing services like the new service for YouTube backgrounds, blog skins and even logos).

I have first came to know Hugh through following some of my all time power twitter users, I noticed they had some brand new Twitter backgrounds, they all had one thing in common: A tiny logo somewhere on the design that says: Made By “TwitterImage.com”

So I headed over to TwitterImage.com and found out all of Hugh’s examples and clients, I think I browsed his samples for over an hour that day, they are very impressive.

Hugh had a very smart business approach, he offered a free background design for any power twitter user (back then the cap was 3000 followers) in exchange of adding a small note that it was made by TwitterImage.

A very clever marketing strategy, that made me apply for one, and I knew it would be a while to get it done since I applied right before Christmas time, and I was right. It took Hugh and his team about a month, and I am assuming it was because of the huge respond he probably got from his smart marketing strategy.

You can still get a free premium design if you have over 5000 users (That’s the cap at the time I’m writing this) or you can buy the same design for just $100 directly from his site.

To see examples, just go to TwitterImage.com or you can see the one he did for me here: Twitter.com/GuruOfSales

Facebook’s CEO On Oprah!

By now, most of you know that I am a huge fan and mostly active (If not addicted!) on 2 major sites: Facebook & Twitter.

Lately, Twitter has gained some huge exposure on some big TV shows world wide, for example: The Daily Show, The Ellen Degeneres Show and tons of shows on YouTube.

Well, until I can get Ellen to follow me @GuruOfSales and listen to my ideas, I’ll just have to write about Oprah.

If you can recall, I wrote about Oprah using Skype, which was a very smart move by her show.

Today, on her show, she is interviewing non other than Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook.

But before Mark, Oprah Skyped Jimmy Fallon, and one of the questions that she asked him is: Who would you like to Skype after Robert De Niro and he answered: The queen of England! (Pretty Cool).

Now, back to Mark. The video introduction was great, and Mark was wearing a tie (For the first time ever I think!).

The interview basically explained the one true point in today’s web, sharing is everything, what made facebook what it is now, was the people, not Mark! However, Mark made the tool, made it easy to share idea’s, videos, photos, laughs or anything, a complete control over your facebook. Even president Obama, he used that power to gain massive votes hands down.

The good thing about this interview is that Oprah connects to millions that is not on facebook, whether because they are afraid or didn’t know how! So the message is clear, join, connect and share.

In today’s Online live, being transparent and sharing it is very important, remember you are not a machine, you’re human, just like me, we all do the same thing, so don’t be afraid, just get on and join. Don’t forget to friend me 🙂

Then Oprah introduced her show’s facebook page, which I think that’s every show, celiberty or company is finally catching up and joining the mass (Also on Twitter now!).

I’ve Just added (Became a fan) of the Oprah fan page and even wrote on the wall!

They even got Jimmy Fallon back through Skype and talked to him about his show’s facebook page.

And that is all, The interview with the youngest billionair was over.

Then there was a YouTube video interview.

The 3 most powerfull sites now (In my opinion) are: Faceboo, Twitter and YouTube. And today’s Oprah show was pretty much a promotion stunt as they used (& still) do for new movies and books!

I have to state the following about my opinion on MySpace:

If you have noticed, I have never done any articles about MySpace, that’s no accident! I have been in love with the Facebook system, clean and simple without all the filling and trash that is MySpace. Don’t get mad at me, but this is just like Microsoft’s IE Vs. FireFox, once you have used FireFox, you’ll never go back! And it’s been proven, do a quick comparison on compete.com or alexa.com between both and you will see how Facebook dominated MySpace. Not bad for my predictions!

At Wahol.com, we had over 14 hours on how to use Facebook for business or personal (And I did point out that your personal profile should not be for business, instead, create a facebook page or group for your business, it’s better this way!). Signup today to get more info.
