CRUSH: Luck for the Luckless

What's Your Reaction:

With St. Patrick's Day around the corner, we took some time to reveal who is going to need the luck of the Irish most. For those new to CRUSH, there is a new video every week, breaking down the social media news you need to know. Consider subscribing.

First, magazine giant Hachette Filipacchi Media has decided to launch their own internal company social network, hoping to increase communication between the cubicles of their very diverse employees. But what do their employees think? "The idiocy is mind-blowing". We have to agree...they, like the state of Michigan, could have used a little thing called Facebook.

Similarly in need of luck is Blippy, the new social networking site that lets you tell everyone what you are buying. That could be embarassing . . .

Breaking: MySpace is the keeper of the pulse of pop culture. FYI.

Want to know where your facebook friends are in real life? Lucky you! Facebook is going to release a location app next month.

Are your friends more 'fair and balanced' than Fox News? Do you trust them more than 'the most trusted name in news'? I know I do. People are increasingly getting their news from well, newsfeeds. CNN's president noted this trend calling Facebook (not Fox) its #1 competetor.

And a related story of people leaving Network TV in favor of social media involves Conan O'Brien, who was the CRUSH of the week, but you're going to have to watch the video to see why.
