Facebook Music Application - Youtube

Make your facebook profile to be fun and cool music application for facebook profile.

Facebook Music Profile
I’m sure you’ve been to YouTube to listen to your favorite music. What if you just don’t want to go to YouTube? What options do you have then?! If you haven’t used Muziic yet, it’s time you check it out. Muziic lets you share songs, albums, radio stations or playlists with your friends. Oh, and guess what? Muziic now has a Facebook application, as well! Other Facebook music applications pretty well suck. Muziic, however, does not! It’s unobtrusive, and does what it is you want it to do.

It’s so easy to use, and of course it’s legal! It only takes a moment to install the app. It’s a great way for you to find out what’s out there, or listen to your old standby favorites. Type in an artist name, and listen to the selections that come up. If you like them, add them to your playlist. Once you’ve created your playlist, you can share it with others on Facebook!

Another cool feature is being able to add a Muziic tab to your Facebook profile. This will show off your favorite songs, artists and radio stations. It will even show what songs you’ve listened to recently! Additionally, you can not only publish songs you love to your own wall… you can also put them on your friends’ walls! Want to send a song to someone? It’s simple. There are “Share” and “Publish” buttons sprinkled throughout the app, making it easy for you to always find them when you need them.

I really REALLY like and recommend this app. Yes, they are helping out our community a bit, but that has nothing to do with my opinion here, folks. Muziic just plain WORKS. Even better… it’s fun to use!

NBA Bans in Game Facebook

Facebook Games, game facebook and twitter games or twitter game.

The National Basketball Association is initiating new social media guidelines for its players, banning the use of websites like Twitter and Facebook during games.

League officials have sent a memo to all 30 teams announcing the guidelines for the proper use of social media sites by the players, coaches and front office workers.

"During games, the use of cell phones, PDAs, other electronic communication devices, and social media or networking sites [including Twitter, Facebook and other sites and services] by coaches, players and other team basketball operations personnel is prohibited," said a portion of the memo.

The memo states that the ban will be in place 45 minutes before the start of each game and last until the post-game media interviews are finished.

The announcement also stated teams "are free to adopt their own rules relating to the use of electronic communication devices and social media sites and services during practices, meetings and other team events."

NBA Commissioner David Stern is a wise man. That low-budget Bill Gates looking sonofabitch was smart to institute a ban prohibiting players from using Twitter 45 minutes before games until the press is allowed in the locker room after games. After a controversy last season where Charlie Villanueva tweeted during halftime of a game, Stern decided that enough was enough! He wasn’t about to let one of his players just talk shit freely like a @terrellowens or an @OGOchoCinco!

It’s a good rule, because it minimizes the chance of an athlete publishing something stupid for the entire world to see. I have all the respect in the world for pro athletes, but let’s face it: Sometimes, some of them say really dumb things.

Granted, lots of people say dumb things…It’s just that when athletes do it, it ends up on SportsCenter. Next, millions of people start to criticize them and it becomes this big stink of a situation. Why not give those guys time to cool off from the heat of competitive game situations before expressing themselves?

Can you imagine what Rasheed Wallace’s twitter account would look like if he were allowed to Tweet immediately after getting ejected from a game?

Mac Apps for Facebook

A lot is happening on Facebook. Not only are your friends telling the world what's going on in their lives, but the social network itself is changing. It's more open now than before, thanks to the Facebook Connect program, and there are several good products that let you see Facebook data in new ways. You don't have to use to use Facebook anymore. Here are some of the best desktop applications.

Dashboard Widget
Dashboard Widget gives you Facebook on your OS X Dashboard. It will display messages, pokes, friend requests, group invites, and other notifications. It updates whenever new notifications filter in.

Facebook iPhoto

Exporter for iPhoto couldn't be easier to use.

Facebook Exporter for iPhoto
If you want to upload photos into Facebook, and you don't want to waste your time firing up Safari, use the Facebook Exporter for iPhoto. It's the best photo-uploading service for Macs. It allows you to find photos in iPhoto, tag them with your friends' names, add captions, and upload them as an album to your profile. It's incredibly easy to use.

If you're an Address Book user, FacebookSync will automatically sync information from Facebook into your Apple Address Book. The service finds matches in your friends list and adds all their information, including name, address, phone number, and other data to your Address Book. It even adds their photos to the app.

A Facebook photo browser for your Mac, PhotoBook allows you to manage, share, and view your friends' Facebook photos without ever going to their profile pages. All the photos are available on a single page, and they can be viewed by tags or in a slideshow. Every photo or album can be downloaded into iPhoto.

Facebook Mobile - Facebook on the iPhone and Mobile Phones

Facebook can be browsed across many different types of mobile phones. The main link for mobile phone Facebook users is:
If you have an iPhone, Facebook has a special version of the site just for you: Facebook for iPhone
The image below demonstrates what surfing Facebook with an iPhone is like!

Note: this obvously isn't an exact replica of the iPhone surfing experience (the iPhone doesn't have a scroll bar, and the words appear slightly smaller on the screen, which is why title in the example above are somewhat squished). In general however, this is what it looks like... cool eh?

What's even cooler is that you can actually access the iPhone Facebook interface from a regular web browser. It's an odd way to surf Facebook, but the sideways-scrolling effects are definitely worth checking out at this size:
