As Get Satisfaction’s co-founder Lane Becker told us yesterday, however, this expense could easily be worth it for these companies, as users on Facebook tend to be very active on these fan pages and really want to interact with these companies and brands on the social networking service.As Lane also noted, conversations that happen around a brand in Facebook tend to be trapped in this silo. Thanks to the synchronization between the two platforms, however, brands can now take this content and make it useful outside of Facebook as well. Another problem for brands that Get Satisfaction is trying to solve here is the simple fact that conversations on Facebook only have a very short lifespan. Get Satsifaction now allows companies to capture these conversations.Overall, this looks like a very smart way for brands to interact with their customers on Facebook and to streamline their social media customer service efforts. frederic lardinois Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Get Satisfaction, the popular online customer service company, just announced that it is bringing its service to Facebook fan pages.

Google self-driving project set to graduate from X Labs

first_imgDavid Curry IT Trends of the Future That Are Worth Paying A… 5 Ways IoT can Help to Reduce Automatic Vehicle… Google’s self-driving project may graduate from X Labs, the company’s moonshot incubator, in a few months, according to project leader and ex-Hyundai CEO John Krafcik.Speaking at the Nikkei Innovation Forum in Palo Alto two months ago, Krafcik said that the project will become its own division inside Alphabet, Google’s holding company, and would greatly expand its staff and physical size.See Also: What’s happening with Google’s self-driving car project?The self-driving project has already started hiring its own executives, according to ReCode, including chief legal officer Kevin Vosen. The team is on the hunt for a “head of real estate”, who would be responsible for finding the right testing grounds for autonomous vehicles.Google has made do with state or city partnerships to test self-driving cars, but as the self-driving project gets bigger it may start to look for more private land to test the autonomous cars in a variety of tricky situations.As self-driving starts to enter onto the public roads, Google, Apple, and other operators need private land to test uncommon situations, to ensure their system is capable of avoiding accidents. The American Center for Mobility, backed by the state of Michigan, recently purchased 311 acres of land, which will become a faux town for self-driving projects.Google car project too quiet?Google has been under a lot of pressure to make its self-driving project more prominent, as competitors like Tesla and Uber roll out self-driving features to the public. The company has still not revealed its plan for commercializing the project.Waze, the traffic and navigation app that Google bought in 2013, recently launched a ride-sharing program for users. Some have speculated that this may be Google route into the self-driving market, swapping ride-sharing for autonomous ride-hailing in the near future.If that is how Google plans to enter the market, it will still require someone to build the hardware for the self-driving system and customers to move from Uber, Lyft, and Didi. That puts the division-to-be behind Tesla and Uber, who have at least one of the requirements.
