Facebook Taking Over Email, Google Taking Over Online Shopping

Did you hear about a) Facebook's the new messaging tool? and b) Google's launch of their new online shopping website?

A) Mark Zuckerberg unveiled a new messaging program, which is a combination of IM, SMS and email. Users will have a mail address of and can send/receive all types of your messages in one location. They've called it a "convergent" modern messaging system.

How its different from traditional email:
  • Seamless messaging
  • Conversation history
  • Social inbox

B) Google launched an online shopping website,! Its a personalized shopping website with a huge emphasis on celebrity style and personal profiles.

You can shop by celebrity, designer, retailer, trend, style genre, featured, popular or recent. Once you've looked at the different boutiques you can choose to "love" or "hate" any selected fashion items. After you've loved or hated a few items, Google starts to create a personalized boutique for you based on your preferences! Gotta love technology. Great timing for the holidays! Either for creating a wish list or shopping for others :)
