Facebook Advertising

Posted on the March 30th, 2009 under Internet by

Recently I came across this advert on the left, and it left be kind of shocked. How did they know i am 29? Is Facebook sharing my details with advertisers?

Knowing it could be too good to be true, I nonetheless clicked on the ad. Pity I’m not in Australia (the target audience), else I could have won the iPhone – yeah right!

Nonetheless, looking up on Facebook advertising, it does offer some really great targeting information. With people providing location, personal info, what they like (fans, etc.) it seems to be an advertiser’s paradise. All that needs to be done is really accurate profile of the target audience.

One just wonders where does the blur occur if it does at all?

Need a Twanslation?

Posted on the March 19th, 2009 under Twitter by

Sometimes I come across use of technology that really blasts me away. This is a really cool concept, instant translations via twitter, if only the service was up more often. Imagine if we hooked this into a text to speech synthesizer as well:

Twanslate, although it does sound like a Tweety bird styled mispronunciation, is, in reality, a Twitter mashup for on the fly translations. It works quite well for when you’re lost in a foreign land and have nothing but your mobile on hand. Simply send out a message (e.g. ‘d twanslate bg [for bulgarian] Where is the nearest toilet?’) to the @twanslate bot, and you’ll be able to get yourself out of sticky situations in a bucket load of languages. The bot remembers the last language code you used, so if you’re still keen on using it, you can skip the language code in your next message. If you need some extra pointers, send out the message ‘help’.
