Trading an eraser

Inspired by the red paper clip trading, we’ve decided to try the trading business as well. Starting with a simple red eraser, we’re now in the hunt for a trading to something new. So, if you’ve got something laying around that you’re not really using, but would like to trade for a lovely eraser, give me a call (if in Sweden, call 0707166279, if not, click here)

We’ve also created a Facebook group for this trading to be monitored. Check it out here!

Check – done that!

Russel Shaw of ZDnet calls for a Skype Me or similar VOIP app. Well, Skype actually did an app they call “Skype me” – but it’s only a presence notification. What we managed to whip together is an app that actually does what the author asks for (and it’s called Reb Me 😉 ).

Rebtel launches user development of our facebook application!

Yes! We’ve launched the application – we’ve gone all public, press releases are out, the heat is on and all that! It’s a buzz in the Rebtel office about Facebook, and you can see many screens lit up by the familiar blue and white interface.

So… what now? Well, we decided to let the users decide. After all –

a computer is a stupid machine with the ability to do incredibly smart things, while computer programmers are smart people with the ability to do incredibly stupid things…

 So, join the effort and join the Reb Me facebook group!

Conspiracy! Bush loves Usama

Many people and organizations have tried linking Usama and Bush together, looking back at the time when Bush was heading oil companies sponsored by the Usama family or when Bush senior helped the talibans to get the russians out of Afghanistan, and so on.

But it’s only until today that we’ve got proof of their friendship! Recent research indicates to close connections between them. A major investigation made by yours truely can now expose them as FRIENDS ON FACEBOOK!

Stay tuned as we continue our reseurch trying to find out if they are Top Friends!

Advertising stupidity

The relevance of online ads is something that has been discussed around the Facebook application forms in recent weeks. With the launch of Facebook flyers it’s now very easy to place “targeted” content towards certain campuses via FB – but is this actually making ads any more relevant?

I would say no – I think that the ads should be relevant to the viewer as well as the content (or profile page) they’re displayed next to. In any case – FB has a lot of data on me (as a viewer), on the profile/page I’m viewing as well as on my click habits – so USE this data!

But I guess this isn’t really unique – I get special offers for tampons every week even though I’m a single guy living by myself…

Some more opinions on this at GigaOM and from Robert Scoble. The original study of flyer click-through rate gave an abysmal 0,04%. All very good reads on this – so now the question is – how tobe visible on Facebook?
