hot pot vs foursquare


Google releases its new location based product to compete popular place sharing service foursquare.com.  We can say google’s hotpot is a clone of foursquare.

Smartly, Hotpot pushes Places, getting business owners to claim their free listings to help Google build their efforts in the online Yellow Pages space, while using social networking to build reviews for their products.

You can add reviews on your smart phone by using Google Maps for Mobile, so they have the mobile thing included as well. And Hotpot also has its own Twitter account to friend people – it should not be long before there is a tie in for users to Tweet their reviews.

“More than 20 percent of Google searches now have a local intent, and it’s clear that finding information about what’s immediately around you is important…. With Google Hotpot, we’re excited to take local search to the next level by making it more personal with recommendations powered by you and your friends,” the Hotpot blog stated.

Advantages of hotpot Over foursquare

Other than the concept in hotpot we can login to the account easily by using same gmail account.

hotpot allows you to access in mobile apps via google maps on antroid .

Google Places – These are the 50 million places around the world for which we have rich details.

The places you like – When you rate places you like, we’ll tell you about other related places you’ll love. I love my favorite neighborhood restaurant in Noe Valley, Firefly, so when I rate it 5 stars, Hotpot will try to recommend other places for me in the city with simple, homey food such as Home restaurant.

The places your friends like – Share your ratings with your friends and see the places they’ve recommended. I’m planning a trip to Barcelona for the holidays and my friend Bernardo is a local. With Hotpot, I can see his recommendations when planning my trip on Google Maps, or when I’m in Spain using Google Maps or Places for Android.

Facebooks Revenue reaches $20 Billion

When we compare to google they generate $25 to $30 per year(more than $25 billion in revenue from about 1 billion users). Their main forms of revenue today are engagement ads and self-service ads.   Already 2 million sites included facebook connect.

A Web giant Yahoo now going to close their web properties Delicious, Yahoo Buzz and AltaVista.com

Tips for creating Cover Letter


First of all you need an effective cover letter then your resume can be impressive.  But if your cover letter isn’t impressive, it’s entirely possible that your resume will never get read. First impressions are lasting impressions. The cover letter you attach to your resume and send to an IT company or public sector firm must make the very best impression possible. If you do it right, your resume will be read and you might get an interview. If you do it wrong then your resume won’t be looked at all. That’s how important a cover letter is. Most people need 30 seconds to read cover letter, so it has to make your case clearly and effectively.

1. Emphasize the skills required. Your cover letter should make very clear that you have the skills and the experience for the position you are applying for. State this in the first paragraph.

2. Make no mistake about it The most important caveat in a cover letter? Absolutely no errors! Your cover letter must be perfection itself. A typo, a poor printing job, a misspelling – mistakes will make a poor impression because they imply that you don’t care. Never hand write a cover letter. Never!

3. Use a word processor. Prepare your cover letter on a computer using MicroSoft Word. Don’t have a computer? Borrow a friend’s or go to a business center and rent one for an hour or two!

4. Avoid fancy fonts. You are not creating a flyer or a poster. So use a business font such as Arial. No colors. Black on white reproduces easily. Use a plain white paper. No deckled finishes or colors either. Print your cover letter and resume on a laser printer. DeskJet printer ink smudges.

5. Keep it short. Your cover letter should be one page in length and perfectly centered. The cover letter and resume are never folded. They are placed in an envelope large enough to accommodate them unfolded.
