Google+, the social network that was first predicted to end Facebook’s reign, and then to die a nameless death, is still alive and kicking and has just rolled out its latest feature - Google+ Communities
. Google+ Communities are groups of interest that any Google+ user can create. Like all other social communities, it allows you to create public and private groups, or moderated public groups. You can add events, share images or videos, and post messages. As a member of a group, you can invite other friends from your circles. To join private communities, you either need to receive an invite, or you can send a request to join. Anyone can join a public community, but for moderated public communities, your request to join must first be approved. This new addition has its own search feature that allows you to discover communities of your interest, and a personal search feature that allows you to search within a community.
If you own or manage multiple (or even one) Facebook pages, then you should know that the mobile version and the official iOS app for the social network simply aren’t enough to get everything done on the go. You can view notifications related to your Facebook pages and post content, but the procedure is not streamlined at all. Apparently, Facebook agrees with this too, and that is why Facebook Pages Manager
has been released. The official Facebook app lets you manage all your Facebook pages in one place, from the convenience of your mobile device. Not only that, Facebook Pages Manager will show you the statistics for each page, and insights for individual posts on that page! So, if you own an iDevice and moderate a few Facebook pages, read on to know all about this super useful app.
Social networking has become a popular genre of apps in the iOS App Store, and gone are the days when the term was synonymous to Facebook. Today, there are many apps which are focused on connecting people in newer and more intuitive ways. Everyme
is a new iPhone app, which blurs the line between group sharing and social networking, as it combines both these aspects in perfect proportions. The whole concept of the app might sound a bit too much like Google+, but overall the app has the potential to prove itself as a refreshing addition to the app collection of your iDevice . Everyme lets its users create any number of Circles
(which are groups of contacts), and once you have done that, it is possible to share any sort of content with that group. Read on to know more.
iOS might be the most popular smartphone platform in the world, but with so many users having almost the same interface on their phones, things can get a little boring. People have long had issues with the stock Contacts app in the iPhone, especially the fact that you can’t delete items in bulk, and there is no option to create groups of contacts. Also, it would be nice to have a new environment in which to view the saved details of people you know. Tacts
is an app which brings all these features, and more, to your iPhone. It basically an alternative to the stock Phone app in iOS, and manages both contacts and dialer to make everything more convenient for users.
Do you use Windows Quick Launch bar to launch applications easily? It is a great feature that allows user to gain quick access to frequently used apps, but there is one big downside, it does not allow you to sort the shortcuts in groups. When you have lots of shortcuts, it gets quite cluttered and difficult to find an app.

The difference is that Free Launch Bar lets you arrange the shortcuts in groups and is fully customizable. It also supports Hotkeys and integrates itself into Windows Shell. Read More
