Benefits of Yelp" The major benefit and main point of Yelp is the ease of communication most yelpers experience -- the site is like word-of-mouth for the digital world, and with Yelp communities popping up in most American cities and other places around the globe, it gets easier to find hot places to go to and see what other people think. But Yelp isn't just reviews: There are also events, event reminders and special offers from businesses and you can even make friends with other yelpers, just like Facebook or MySpace. This allows you to send messages to other users or even "follow" them, which allows you to see a specific reviewer's posts before any others when you're looking at a business.

Vergence Labs will ship its own potential competitor to Google Glass just in time for the holidays, at a price of $299. The Vergence "Social Electric Eyewear HD" will debut, however, as something a bit less than the augmented-reality eyeglasses that Google debuted last week. Google co-founder Sergey Brin was photographed wearing a prototype, although it's unclear how functional the glasses were. Vergence announced its plans on Kickstarter, where consumers can play venture capitalist and fund an idea to completion. On the site, Vergence said that the Eyewear HD will cost $299, and will be available on Dec. 21, 2012. Vergence Targets Google's Project Glass With Social Sunglasses

The Social TV Experience with #AKASocialTV « kcdamore It’s always fun when you can combine two topics you like and get class credit for it. In this case, it was for DR4WARD‘s class- we were given the opportunity to teach the class about a developing topic of social media. Our group of four picked a topic that came relatively easy to us – Social TV. It’s perhaps the most intuitive idea in all of social media – combining social networks with television.
This past Monday in my Newhouse Social Media course, my teammates and I presented on social TV. For the past few weeks we’ve been researching the topic, interviewing experts, and using some amazing tools to find out more about this new social media platform. My teammates and I communicated with each other, Dr. Ward, and our TA Lynessa in many ways. kristin kelly

The Pros and Cons of Geo-Location Apps for Your Business The concept of geo-location is nothing new. Apps like Foursquare, Facebook Places, and Gowalla have been around for a few years. These location-targeting apps work in two ways. First, they report a specific user’s location to other users, and second, they relate real-world locations (in this case your business) to their location. In case you’re wondering whether or not your small business should be included in the mix, you’ve come to the right place.
How cutting edge geolocation can change everything | Geek Gestalt AUSTIN, Texas--These days, smartphones seem like they're everywhere. And with their wide array of built-in sensors, those devices--iPhone, Androids, Windows Phones, and others--can provide us with more and more data about where we are and what's around us than ever before. And yet, the devices sometimes still seem like they're caught in a very 1.0 era--they can tell us where we are, but that information may not be useful in any way beyond helping us get to where we're going.

CupidRadar: using geolocation to meet singles In the early 1990s, Mehrdad Sarlak envisioned a dating service that matched likeminded singles based on their physical location. It was not until smartphones emerged with their geolocation capabilities that Sarlak's vision took shape. He founded CupidRadar.com as a way for singles to exchange messages with potential matches who are within their search parameters—both their physical location and their "search criteria." Sarlak opened up to me about how he thinks technology will shape the dating landscape, what type of "search criteria" is important to singles, and if he has ever used CupidRadar to meet women. Technology has allowed us to become connected in ways never thought imaginable, but many people argue that our reliance on technology as a communication median has made us less comfortable with face-to-face interactions.
The 2012 Where Conference on location and mobile technology is now over, but it made an impression on all who were involved. It was so interesting for me from a market researcher’s perspective to see not only what’s on the cutting edge in a very cool area of technology, but to see the passion with which those involved in the world of geolocation approach their craft. You can look forward to more of this type of interdisciplinary cross-pollination from Research Access because not only is it fun and interesting, but hopefully in some small way it provides ideas to help our industry evolve. Not sure about geolocation and market research? Let me throw out some ideas for how it can and/or could be used (please assume all of these are with the respondent’s consent). 10 Use Cases for Geolocation in Market Research
Geolocation on Your Mobile Network - 1 Translation
Location aware applications for mobile have become commonplace. Everything from Foursquare, to Google Latitude to Gowalla to Facebook places. All of these startups rely on one common factor – checkins. In almost all cases, users need to actually be willing to share a status update that shouts to the world exactly where they are, and what they are doing there. In the most part, the incentive for doing so has been driven by gamification on mobile- and the power of game mechanics has driven the majority of these business models.

Study: Geolocation apps draw users, despite privacy concerns IDG News Service - Nearly 60 percent of smartphone users employ apps that access their location data despite having concerns about risks to their privacy and even personal safety, according to a survey conducted by ISACA, a nonprofit group that focuses on risk and security management. Facebook making all the right noises on password privacy Respondents to the survey, which polled 1,000 smartphone owners by phone last month, indicated that their chief concerns were advertisers' access to their information and potential risks to their personal safety. Concerns about personal safety were piqued this week after sharp criticism of an app called Girls Around Me that became known as a "stalker" app.
