Much improved Google image search

July 29, 2010 Leave a comment

Google just improved their image search feature.

Wow! It is awesome. Try it – features include enlarging the images on mouseover (removing the old need for page reload) and infinite scrolling (similar to your Facebook Newsfeed) so you don’t need to page through and wait for the next page to load.

Time saving is massive – and you no longer need to click view full size image – it knows you want to do that so shows you automagically!

WIN for Google.

In the film by director Chris Faith, Nudge’s own Social Media Guy interviewed a hapless Read more…

Nudge Social Media have just finished attending an epic two day hackathon where all the most influential people from Facebook were in hosting the combined thought leadership from the Social Media industry. The event was part of a series of events organised by Facebook with the Facebook Developer Garage London.

Sunday 20th June 2010

The star of course walked in to the Dare offices in Soho yesterday (that’s right, on a Sunday) at about 18:50: Mr Mark Zuckerberg.

The British press can be very unfair; and as humans we have a tendency to submit to tall poppy syndrome. As a result you’d be forgiven for having read several articles on the web and been led into believing that Mark is “arrogant” or “dismissive”, “out of touch” or “out of his depth”. Let me say for the record Read more…

My alarm woke me at 5.15am to bring me to King’s Cross station in London in time to meet my friends on the committee on the concourse in time for the 7am train First Class to Darlington.

Live blogging from F8: Mark Zuckerberg’s keynote address.

Emotions: He’s nervous. He has an “epic win” laugh that worries me he’s thinking of world domination. Maniacal. His friends call him Zuck. [Update: Find out how impeccably Mark treated people at the FDGL Hackathon in real life.]

Key announcements:

Summary : Everything simpler and more social, more personalised.
