Facebook launches real-time comments

Facebook is riding the 'real-time' train hard these days. Following yesterday's release of real-time Insights for page owners, it appears Facebook has now rolled out live commenting. 'Live', as in comments now update in real-time, without the need to refresh the page. Discovered by mistake by developer Jesse Stay, it seems like this only happens on your Feed or Profile pages. Many people have...

TweetDeck v0.36 released, now with real-time Twitter streaming

TweetDeck's User Streams Preview introduced real-time Twitter streams to anyone who was willing to beta test, and now TweetDeck v0.36 is bringing it to the masses. This release merges the User Streams Preview with the "original" branch of the app, giving all users the option to view their friends' tweets in real time. Real-time is on by default, so make sure to turn it off in preferences if...

Keyboard shortcuts make Google Instant even faster

Like it or loathe it, Google Instant is here to stay. Big G reckons that it saves you 2-5 seconds per search, but now Google's pushing ahead with pure keyboard navigation. Of course, you've always been able to select from the suggested search terms using the arrow keys, but now the arrow up and down buttons can be used to skip through the actual search results. Hitting Enter on the desired result...

Google Instant launches, searching now 'faster than the speed of type'

That's Google's pun in the title, but by Zeus's greased lightningbolt! I wish I'd thought of it first. Google's big announcement is the launch of Google Instant. I think most of us had hoped Instant would be but a part of today's goodies, but alas! You can try it out by simply heading to www.google.com -- and if it hasn't been activated for you yet, check out our previous post on the topic. ...

An early sneak-peek at Google's real-time search results

Later today there's a big Google event, where we think some big changes to their primary search product will be announced. One of those changes might be the new 'instant search' -- and if you can't wait for the official launch, you can try it out by simply visiting a special URL: http://www.google.com/webhp?sclient=psy We covered Google's testing of this new feature just two weeks ago, so I'd...

Twitter Tuesday - Twitter is now in real-time, and it's breathtaking

Twitter's real-time streaming API is the biggest deal in Twitterland this week, as it enables Twitter apps to show you every tweet as it happens. Only a couple of apps have access so far -- including Tweetdeck and Echofon -- and the demos we're seeing are startling. You knew there were a lot of tweets flying around out there, but it's a totally different and overwhelming thing to see them like...

It's not just Bing - Google makes Twitter search deal, too

When Microsoft partnered with Twitter to allow its Bing search engine to index tweets in real time, it looked like they had finally gotten the jump on Google at something. Just hours later, Google VP Marissa Mayer announced that the big G had made a Twitter deal, too. Although Bing's Twitter product is out today, Google's won't be too far behind. It looks like Google intends to use tweets to...

Bing makes search deals with Facebook and Twitter

With so much hype about real-time as the future of search, it makes sense that the major players in search would make moves to partner up with real-time networks like Facebook and Twitter. What's surprising is that the first big move is coming from Microsoft Bing, and not from Google. At today's Web 2.0 summit, Bing announced deals with Twitter and Facebook, which will allow Bing to start...

Is "Real-Time" taking the place of "Web 2.0" on the hypechart?

Is just me, or is "real-time" the replacement term for "Web 2.0": you know, hideously over-used, over-hyped and prime for a square on the Internet Bullsh*t Bingo card? I mean, word has it that every man, dog and Venture Capitalist is on the real-time train now that mere mortals like parents are embracing Twitter. Continuing the real-time push is Pubsubhubbub - the real-time blog notification...

Real-time collaboration is simple with Team Apart

Sometimes, the best people for a job can't all assemble in the same physical location. That's not a problem when everyone's working independently, but even the best remote coworkers sometimes need to have a meeting. Team Apart makes that possible, with really simple real-time collaboration features including audio/video chat and whiteboarding. It's easy to invite people to your Team Apart...

CrowdEye: the real-time search space is getting crowded

It looks like real-time search - mainly built around Twitter - is the hot new bandwagon to jump on. Twitscoop, Scoopler, Twingly, Searchmerge, Collecta ... we've written about all of these this year, and the grab for real-time search traffic hasn't stopped yet. CrowdEye is the latest entry to catch our attention in this already-crowded field. CrowdEye is limited compared to some of the...

Collecta is another take on real-time search

The real-time search arena, fueled by the popularity of Twitter, continues to heat up. Collecta is the latest and most visually appealing stab at getting real-time search right. It draws on images, articles, blog comments and microblogs for data, and refreshes automatically. The layout is a cool three-column affair, with filters on the right, live results in the middle, and a preview of your...

Realtime event tracking with Almost.at

As people discover that social sites can be pretty decent news sources, especially when it comes to event coverage, I think we'll start seeing a lot more projects like Almost.at. Almost.at uses text, photos, videos and links from sites including Twitter and Flickr to show as-it-happens coverage of everything from concerts to conferences to breaking news stories. Right now, for example, a Phish...

SearchMerge: search Google and social sites simultaneously

With all the hype around Twitter as the future of search, it makes sense that someone would put together a search engine that combines Google results with results from social sites around the web. Enter SearchMerge. It's basically just a text entry field and a selection of sites to search, including Twitter, Friendfeed and YouTube, but it has the potential to be very useful. Or, it would, if...

Scoopler: real-time search results and more

As developers look at the success of Twitter and the possibilities of real-time, search results that come straight from social networks, we're going to start seeing a lot more search engines like Scoopler. Scoopler delivers search trends in the left column, scrolling search results from Twitter, Delicious, Flickr and Digg in the center, and video, links and images on the right. Scoopler's not...
