Monday morning we checked our calendars and were shocked to realize that it is already OCTOBER! Fall is here and the days keep flying by. Talk about milestones flying by, Facebook is now at over One Billion active users. What an accomplishment. One of the best aggregators in the market turned five years old this week. Friendfeed (which was purchased by Facebook three years ago) still remains the old reliable in that space. The MLB Playoffs start today (Friday) and check out how popular song discovery app Shazam is adding to it’s offerings. For our viral video this week, check out these wedding clips for a great laugh (ouch Grandma!). For all of our dog lovers, some bonus clips are right here. Also, look at this detailed infographic that schools you on how to get more engagement with your Facebook page. And finally, in celebration of World Teachers Day, Youtube has now exceed 1,000 Education channels. Much more than music videos and movie trailers, eh?
