Social networks are great for connecting us to many other people at once. They're also bad for precisely the same reason. How many friends or followers really need to know that I am really excited to be cooking on a gas stove for the first time?* 80% won't care, 10% will comment on how electric stoves are safer, a couple will point out how induction stoves are much better at everything, and then I'm just known as that guy who started that pointless argument about stoves online.

Klout has undergone some changes since the social impact tracker was acquired by Lithium Technologies a few months ago. The new mobile app is less about tracking your Klout number to carefully gauge your self-importance. It's basically another way to share content. The difference – this stuff is totally 100% guaranteed to resonate with your unique audience, or your money back.**

Listening to the radio has been a social experience since families first gathered around them in their living rooms, and now TuneIn Radio is ready to fully embrace this aspect. The Android app has received an update that injects a fresh dose of social features. Some of these build upon the way the software previously functioned, while other aspects are entirely new.

In an announcement on its official blog today, Twitter said that "photos just got more social." What has actually happened is that social just got more photos. In an update to both iOS and Android mobile apps, Twitter will allow users to tag each other in photos, with the ability to upload four photos at once starting on iOS and coming to Android and the web "soon."

Users will be able to tag up to ten other people in their photos, while maintaining all 140 characters for brief, micro-blogged commentary.

Making Android-powered cameras isn't something new for Polaroid, but that doesn't mean it's the first company to come to mind when thinking of capturing digital photos (and for good reason). On the other hand, the company's old instant printing cameras call upon an altogether different set of memories. So now the company is shaking things up by re-introducing the premise it's known for. Not only can the Socialmatic instantly share pictures to social networks like any other Android-toting camera out there, it can instantly print them out to a 2"x3" sheet of paper.

Last Updated: December 26th, 2013

It's one thing to release an app for Android, but if a developer doesn't keep it up with the times, its usefulness is limited. So Diigo has now updated its Android app to version 2.0, bringing in a desperately needed makeover. The social bookmarking app can now handle notes, pictures, messages, and bookmarks in an interface that won't make anyone whose two-year contract hasn't expired cringe.
