Ever wanted to check if your favorite username was available on over 80 different social services all at once? Well, now you can with Namechk. I was actually surprised by the results. I thought I pretty much had my brand on lock. I’ll need to sign up on a few services with the correct name to avoid confusion in the future and to keep from being impersonated.
New Yahoo Image Search
Yahoo recently upgraded their imagemeeting24 search and according to RWW, it’s now better than Google’s. The new interface makes it much easier to find what you’re looking for by providing more recommendations than Google. They also make it easy to scan through multiple images.
Meeting24.tv is probably the absolute simplest way to have a meeting online. Many other online meeting services are a little involved, so Meeting24 has cut out all the extras. The only person who even needs to register is the meeting organizer. You share a URL that allows others to enter the meeting room. It’s almost like Tinychat, but with video. [via TechCrunch]
Nomee is a new application that attempts to help you organize and keep up with your social media junk. Rather than following different services, it focuses on keeping track of individuals. You create “Nomee cards” and share these with individuals or groups. They appear to work just like Personas in Chi.mp, providing a flexible way to manage who sees what. Nomee is an Adobe AIR application. [via RWW]
Having trouble making a decision? Flickr’s co-founder Caterina Fake’s new startup Hunch may be able to help you make up your mind. It asks a series of questions about the situation and uses your answers to figure out what you should do. You can also attach links and discuss the decisions you’re given, so this makes Hunch a pretty social web app as well as a useful site for reviews and insights on just about anything. Hunch is currently in private beta. [via Mashable]Category: Trends, web 2.0 | Tags: meeting24.tv, namechk, Yahoo
