You may have noticed in your daily browsing that some Twitter pages have been looking different lately. And, if you’re in the know about social media, then you’re probably aware that the new layout is part of a massive Twitter revamp that’s currently being rolled out. Michelle Obama’s Twitter account (@FLOTUS) has made the change, opting for the new, content-driven layout, while all new Twitter accounts are starting off with the modernized blueprint. And in the coming weeks, the new design will be made available to all users, with a changeover possibly being made mandatory in the next few months.   What’s driving this change? And what effect will it have on usership? NapkinBetaBeyond takes a look at the reasons behind the revamp and how it stacks up to Facebook. Read More

Since it was first introduced in 2007, Google Street View has given users unprecedented visual access to corners of the world that many of us will never actually set foot in. We can virtually tour the picturesque shores of Cape Cod, pass by the imposing façade of Westminster Abbey, and swing by Wat Arun Temple in Bangkok. But Street View doesn’t just give us a look at tourist hotspots around the globe.
