If we look back at history , we find that long before Facebook, MySpace and YouTube, there was ICQ . For anyone who doesn’t know, ICQ was created in 1996 and is now wholly owned by AOL. ICQ was THE pioneer of social media and real time updates. It introduced us to instant messaging and a revolutionary new way to communicate with people instantly in real time. ICQ could have been Facebook or Twitter a long time ago. It’s taken ICQ quite a long time to get back to its status as a social pioneer but now with it’s new client, ICQ is getting back to what it was about all the way from the beginning – a place to interact with your friends everywhere.
I had just turned sixteen when instant messaging client ICQ was first released in November 1996. I started using the program a couple of months later, and will never be able to erase that annoying ‘uh oh’ sound from my memory. Like many others, I moved on from ICQ to other, more feature-packed communication services at the dawn of the new millennium and never really looked back. After a decade of barely remembering it exists, I reinstalled the ICQ client on my computer this morning. The reason isn’t nostalgia: more than 13 years after its first release, and nearly 12 years after Aol bought the company behind ICQ (Mirabilis) for a whopping $407 million, there is an updated client available for download that finally brings the product into the era of the realtime web and social networking craze. The question is: is it too little, too late?
Brian Solis is a principal at new media agency FutureWorks . You can connect with him on Twitter or Facebook . An overnight success ten years in the making, social media is as transformative as it is evolutionary. At last, 2010 is expected to be the year that social media goes mainstream for business.
RSS technology makes it possible for anyone to keep up with fresh content without having to visit the site in question. Now the same holds for webpages without RSS thanks to a new Google Reader feature. Today Google has rolled out a subtle change to Google Reader that lets you create custom feeds to track pages that don't already have them. So you can subscribe to updates for any webpage simply by typing the URL into the "Add a subscription" text box.
RSS is dead ?
Editors Note: This is a guest post by Dave Winer , widely considered the father of RSS, a legend of the Internet technology industry and a pioneer of far too many areas to mention. We’re both delighted and privileged to have him contribute to the The Next Web. I was happy to read Richard MacManus’s article about stagnation in the RSS reader market. He said the market is in “disarray” but I believe that’s the wrong word. Disarray would imho be a good thing, because it would mean users have lots of choice, there would be competition, we’d be learning what works and what doesn’t.
Skimming many of the leading technology outlets, you would think RSS had given up its ghost, making way for new services, like Twitter . Just this week, ReadWriteWeb claimed the RSS reader market was in "disarray" and continued a "decline". This came after a summer in which TechCrunch IT's Steve Gillmor declared RSS dead and suggested that it "rest in peace" and others ditched RSS for microblogging lists.
Have trouble keeping up with the sites you visit? Read them in one place with Google Reader, where keeping up with your favorite websites is as easy as checking your email. Stay up to date Google Reader constantly checks your favorite news sites and blogs for new content.

In an Idea Lab post last fall , I collected a series of examples that primarily used the voice functionality of mobile phones; however, this new set of projects integrate voice and radio with data-based services like SMS and web.
Google's Growing Galaxy
It seems like everyone and their mother now has their own URL shortening service, or at least their own short domain. Short URLs have almost become a branding thing. But as the use of short links keeps going up, the market share among different URL shortening services is fragmenting. The biggest URL shortening service is still bit.ly, with more than 2 billion links a month, but it now only has a 56 percent market share of short links on Twitter, compared to nearly 80 percent last summer. The drop wasn’t noticed before because TweetMeme, which keeps statistics on short URL market share, pulled its stats page for a couple months as part of a site upgrade to make it more scalable. But now that stats page is back up, and it is tracking 3.1 million unique links per day compared to 2.5 million last November..
Just when you thought the web couldn’t possibly fit any more, a new URL shortener is on the loose, this time however, it actually makes some sense. Inside Facebook have spotted Facebook automatically shortening URLs down to FB.me for Facebook’s mobile interface. Unlike the hundreds of other URL shortening services out there, this one is should be welcomed. With over 350 million users and the obvious twitterification of the service, a URL shortener built into Facebook (potentially with analytics for businesses) is a useful new feature. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
We’re updating. Bear with us. This is uncanny, we just brought you news of Facebook’s new shortened URL services when Google announces their own , Goo.gl. The service is only available via Google Toolbar and FeedBurner, not as a stand alone service (yet). Google are hoping to sell the service by focusing on what Google has become renowned for; stablity, security and speed. Google will also check sites being linked to by its service to ensure you aren’t being directed to malicious sites too.
Just when you thought that the great shortener wars of 2009 had come to an uneasy calm, we may have just uncovered a new, yet unlaunched competitor that wants to upset everything. In Firefox, point your address bar to: http://to./ (UPDATE – works on the latest Chrome dev build). What you see is this: Darren Bounds , president of Cliqset , brought this to our attention. What this appears to be, is a use of the .to top level domain.
