Mashups: Game Changers

A “mashup” is the result of a web developer literally “mashing” two technologies together. We saw an example in Chapter 2 with TweetDeck, a single product that will let you view feeds from multiple sites at once. Facebook Connect allows you to access multiple websites (such as TeacherTube) or other products (like Skype) from your Facebook account. At the time of this writing, there is a rumor of a similar Twitter Connect service in the works.
Among the most promising of the social media mashups is Posterous (http://posterous.com), which allows you to post items like posts or videos simultaneously to Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube simply by sending an email.
