Search Google Images, búsqueda a partir de dibujos

En realidad muy pocos de nosotros somos expertos dibujantes, por lo cual no pasaremos de realizar unos dibujos de niños, pero puede ser interesante si queremos buscar un logo que se adapte a lo que necesitamos, o queremos tener algunas ideas a partir de ciertos colores.

Además de dibujar en un lienzo blanco, también nos permite subir una imagen de nuestro ordenador o tomar una fotografía con la webcam y luego agregar algún detalle o dibujo.

Search Google Images  es una aplicación que pretende emular el buscador de imágenes de Google, pero con la variante de realizar búsquedas a partir de dibujos.
Para ello, tendremos que dibujar a mano alzada con las herramientas que provee la aplicación (ahí donde comenzamos a cuestionar la funcionalidad). Contaremos con una paleta de colores y la posibilidad de cambiar el tamaño del pincel. Leer más “Search Google Images, búsqueda a partir de dibujos”

ShareThis Starts Measuring Social Reach, Facebook And Twitter Account For Nearly Half

When it comes to measuring how content is shared across the Web, the approaches we use today are still pretty primitive. People count how many times a link is shared on Facebook or retweeted on Twitter, but nobody really knows what percentage of those links are clicked on to drive traffic back to the original sites. ShareThis, which offers an all-in-one share button across tens of thousands of sites, is trying to address this issue with new metrics across its network that measure not only how many times a link is shared, but also how many times people act on that and click back to the article or Webpage. It calls this new metric Social Reach.

The company shared some data with me about the biggest sharing services across its network, which reaches 400 million people a month. Facebook is No. 1, accounting for 45 percent of all shared content. Email is No. 2 with 34 percent, and Twitter is No. 3 with 12 percent. Combined, Twitter and Facebook now account for 57 percent of all shared links, which is up 6 percentage points since last February. Email, meanwhile, has dropped by 7 percentage points in the same time period. So a share shift in social sharing is definitely occurring.

Facebook And iTunes Integrate, Will Google Flinch?

By now, we all know that Google is the largest search and cloud computing in the world, where they hosts and develops a slew of Internet-based services and products such as Google Buzz. However, when you’re that colossal of a company to challenge, your competition will constantly try to find innovative ways be on par with you.

Let’s take Facebook and Apple for examples. If they want to challenge Google, it’s not possible for them to do it individually but what happens if they join forces? That’s exactly what’s happening according to the latest report that iTunes will be implementing Facebook Connect support in the near future.

Those two, in my opinion, are one of the biggest features for each company respectively. With the integration, users can now share their recent purchases with their friends on Facebook. If you noticed from iTunes fan page on Facebook, they now include featured items and polls where users can directly purchase from the page. In addition to that, the page is also being promoted within iTunes itself.

We need to take note too that Apple acquired Lala in December; that company has extensive working experience with Facebook Connect. A previous integration would be the ability through iPhoto where Apple users can immediately upload their photos on Facebook.

Now, watch out Google, they’re coming.

No matter your choice of profession, it’s definitely much easier to find a job today as compared to the days before Internet.

Then, phone calls, letters and word of mouth were essential to land you a job but now, everything’s a click away. Besides the above, at this point of time, most of us are connected through online job sites, forums and social networks such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
