Ok we already thought that shopping online through Facebook was quite nice but this new service is really unbelievable.
Westfield London mall has created a tool that can identify clothes or products from online photos, cell phone photos and then tell you in which store you could buy the same product. It first recognise from who the clothe is from and then directs you to the nearest shop where you can purchase it.
If you love the dress that this girl is wearing in front of you just take a picture of her (discretely of course) and then use the mobile app to have the same results.
It’s really a great service but apparently we’re going to have to wait a bit longer, because it’s doesn’t seem to be available online for now.
You could watch the demo for now though!
Today is polling day, stay constantly updated until the results by following the election online.
We already mention the fact that this election is UK’s first ‘social media election’. But today some other features have been added. You can tell your friends you’ve voted by pushing the ‘ I voted’ button on Facebook. A counter is also there to track how many users have voted. The Guardian is using a Twitter mashup to plot votes on a map. People when they voted just have to tweet about it the #UKvote hashtag.
When the voting’s over, you’ll have to find out who won, right? Well you could go on ExitPol.ly to see what the crowdsourced results say or you can see a broader view of the BBC’s election coverage here.
You can also get the results with ‘The Election 2010’ iPhone app that will give you live election results as they come in through the night.
Tonight BBC will stream the expected live political leader’s debate on Facebook. It’s the first time for the broadcaster. CNN was first to partner with Facebook to provide live streaming of Barack Obama’s inauguration.
The debate will also be streamed live on it’s website.
The BBC’s political correspondents will also provide updates via Twitter during the debate, and users can give their reactions live.
The BBC will provide an embed code which will open up the debate for third-party sites to stream, as Sky did last week.
Don’t miss out!
