Flattr

Flattr is a really interesting micro payment system for monetising social media for content owners.  It could add up nicely.

Geo tagging boosted with twitter places

Our friends at twitter have integrated geo location that now allows users to drill down to find tweets from specific locations.  There is integration with gowalla and foursquare’s check in feature.  This is really quite a big event as it offers both great opportunities as well as threats for those who are underperforming.

Lets face it if I get a feed that the food and service is bad in the restaurant as I wait at the bar I’m going somewhere else.   Probably to the one down the street that is offering a tweeted discount.  Leisure and retail, look out.   It may take a while to take off but the data this may offer could be incredible.
