Is is possible that the relationship between Bing and Twitter could give Google some serious competition? Or is it simply a situation of companies merging to increase their reach and by extension their revenues in this ever competitive emerging media era?

Facebook at it again!
Is it me? Or is Facebook the king of social media and all the trimmings that come with it?
Some days, especially in the recent past, I feel as if I’m suffering from emerging media fatigue! There is so much information out there, and usually, just as I think I’m getting used to or finally understanding something, something new pops up.
It’s so hard to keep up with the ever evolving aspect of new media. Not sure that there are many like me who share my experience of feeling as if I’m always playing catch up.
And still there are those who excel at keeping abreast of this wonderful new technological era in which we now find ourselves. One such entity that like cream, always seems to rise to the top, is Facebook. Whether it’s good or bad, it’s hard to ignore the amount of Facebook that’s almost out there daily about Facebook. There is no denying that Facebook’s marketing machinery knows how to keep Facebook top-of-mind. And this time it’s no different. Facebook has developed an app for Windows 8/8.1.
So now I’m left to ponder. Is the phrase ‘give the people what they want’ the premise under which Facebook is operating? Or is Facebook continually producing additives making us believe we can’t do without them. Whichever you believe, there’s no denying that Facebook has positioned itself as a leader in emerging media, that millions of people do not want to live without.
