Snipper (free) isn't simply yet another web-based video sharing service. Rather, it's phone to phone. You use Snipper to shoot videos with your iPhone (limited to 60 seconds or less), and Snipper pushes those videos to the phones of other Snipper users that are subscribed to your channel/s. From your phone to theirs — no need for a link to a website and then streaming of the video off that site. The film is downloaded, in the background, to their devices so that once they receive notification the film is already on their device.
Facebook Places on the iPad
I'm in the middle of writing a couple of books about social media, and I'm up on Facebook almost all the time. It's an incredibly feature-rich environment—so much so, that it's almost impossible to describe it all in a book, let alone a 700 word article. In this edition of Social Media Report, I'm going to focus on one specific feature of Facebook—Places. If you want a thorough understanding of Places, take a look at Facebook's description (facebook.com/places) or check out my new book (see my author's bio).
