Invite people to chat via SMS If you get a message while the app is running the in-app alert will sound a tone so you don’t miss it. When we first started using Google+ Hangouts for our show The Friday Hangout the interface was pretty glitchy. It crashed at the drop of a feather. Audio was problematic as was the picture quality and sometimes just plain odd things would happen. No more!

[SMS] Facebook Email? Um, not really
The new Facebook messaging will incorporate email, Facebook messages text (SMS) and other chat clients like Jabber all collected in an email address that will be yourusername@Facebook.com. If you’re a social media geek you already know about Facebook’s live session today to introduce their new messaging system. If you’d like to see the re-caps go here. There will be bugs.

JULY 8, 2010 | JANET FOUTS [SMS] Twitter to Offer Deals with Earlybird
With only two tweets on the site (one of them says “ Send “follow earlybird to 40404 to receive each deal via SMS. I’m a big fan of group coupon networks, deals and discounts offered through Twitter. In these times what’s not to love about buying a coupon for a dinner at 40 or 50% of it’s market value? It’s a win for the vendor too because they get new faces in the door and most times we spend more than the coupon. Sometimes I even forget I bought it and the money I spent stays in the pocket of the vendor. guess the investors are buying it too!
