6 Tips to Increase Your Facebook EdgeRank and Exposure | Social Media Examiner

EdgeRank Defined: Ever wonder why you can have 548 friends on Facebook, yet only 15-20 show up in your news feed? It’s not that those other friends have stopped using Facebook; chances are they’re still there. It’s just that they aren’t showing up in your news feed.

IntoNow — Connect with your friends around the shows you love

Connect with your friends around the TV shows you love – now there’s an app that recognizes which TV show you are watching, checks you in and lets you post it on Facebook or Twitter.  Now you can see even more useless information about your friends.  I guess it could be embarrassing if they are watching porn or cartoons and forgot to turn off the app.  Or a kid could be soooo busted if they are supposed to be doing their homework and their parents see a Facebook or Twitter post that they’re actually watching MTV’s Skins.  LOL

IntoNow makes engaging with your friends around your favorite television shows easy and fun. Just tap the green button when you’re watching, and IntoNow will identify the show, right down to the episode. Once identified it’s easy to share with your friends on Twitter or Facebook.

Facebook Launches Its Groupon Killer

Facebook is launching its group buying service “Deals” today.

Here’s what’s special about Facebook Deals:

  • While you’ll be able to receive offers by email, they will mostly show up in your Facebook news feed. Most group buying services rely on email first to send deals, but Facebook won’t.
  • You’ll be buying the deals with Facebook Credits. This is pretty huge, as it’s the first time Facebook’s payments system will be used to buy physical goods and services and not just virtual goods. A lot of people are wondering if/when Facebook will go directly after PayPal and offer an online payments service; if it’s planning that, this is a good first step toward doing that.
  • Facebook is partnering with other services like OpenTable. It will also rely on its own sales force to sell deals but it also partners with other companies that also have relationships with merchants, which is smart.
