Were you getting notifications about your Facebook Fan Page?


Were you getting notified when someone commented on your fan page(s)?

No? Me neither. Till about an hour ago.

Facebook now seems to be showing notifications related to fan pages that you manage.

If this feature is here to stay, it's certainly welcome. Otherwise, it was a pain to check if someone commented on a post you put up a month ago - on your fan page.

What do you think?

50 Power Twitter tips - Prezi style

Chris Brogan had recently written a post on 50 power twitter tips. True enough, each tip was a tweet by itself. However, assimilating 50 tweets in a 'one below the other' format can be rather difficult - so we thought we'd inject some 'Prezi'ntation magic into it. Take a look and let us know what you think. Feel free to share on your blog or anywhere else. You can get the embed code and/or see a full screen version by clicking on the More button below.


By the way, a lot of content in EyesAndFeet.com will be in a similar format.

Why is everyone fishing in Groupon's pond?


First it was the attack of the clones - in the US, China, India & everywhere else - not surprising considering that $467 can get you a Groupon clone.

Then, Twitter announced @earlybird which, inspite of the shaky start, has Groupon in it's crosshairs

After that, it was Yelp's turn - apparently they're testing out some Groupon-like features in a pilot they're running in Sacramento. Of course, Yelp is also pretty busy with Google Places snapping on their heels.

Some crystal ball gazing...

a) Expect Facebook to launch a play in this area too. They're perfectly poised to launch a social shopping product - what better way to promote group buying than to get you to galvanize your extended Facebook network into buying with you?

b) Google places should be next. Once they're firmly on Yelp's turf, I'd expect them to launch a Google Deals sub-product within Google Places. It's fairly obvious that they're putting a lot of focus behind Google Places.

It's an interesting time to be in this 'space'.

And why. is everyone fishing in Groupon's pond? That's the easiest to answer - because they're making money. Tons of it!
