Twitpic to lose users because of the use of photos on Twitter.

The founder of Twitpic photo service, used by Twitter users, Noah Everett launched a social network called Heello , very similar to microblogging. The reason for the creation of the site would have been a “change” due to the release of photos of the Twitter service, a competitor to Twitpic.

The Heello is very similar to Twitter, including microblogging format, with users posting short texts of up to 140 characters. However, instead of tweeting, you “ping” (ping, in English) are retweet the “echo” (echo, in English) and instead “follow” a person in Heello, the user “listens “(listen in English) your friends.

The creator of the social network still has Twitpic integration with Twitter and Facebook, allowing Heello and publish posts to make them appear automatically in the other two services. Everett told VentureBeat that the site will support videos Heello, transfers of places (check-ins, Foursquare and in service), SMS messaging, mobile applications and channels to act as the “lists” of Twitter.

Everett has not announced what will be the business model that Heello to compete with Twitter, will have to overcome the 200 million social network users.

A day after arriving to occupy the first rank of the company’s most valuable market in the world, Apple has reached another milestone on Wednesday (10). At the close of trading on the NASDAQ stock exchange in New York, the sum of the shares – an index known as market capitalization – has surpassed that of Exxon Mobil. For the first time in its 35 year history, so Apple is listed as the leader in closing the list of giants in market value.

The brand, however, came at a bad day for Apple stock. In preliminary closing of the day, Apple shares indicated down 2.7% in the value of the company at the opening. The manufacturer of mobile devices had a total market capitalization of $ 339.4 billion. Exxon Mobil, the former leader, fell even more: 4.42% to a total of U.S. $ 332.4 billion.

The leadership came due to the crisis in the U.S. market, established after the country struggled to get rid of a threat of default and have the note of its debt downgraded by rating agency Standard and Poor’s . As a result, Exxon shares were down more sharply than those of Apple.

There are just 15 months Apple has taken the lead among technology companies, surpassing Microsoft . At the time, the market assessed the company Steve Jobs at U.S. $ 222 billion. Before that, when Steve Jobs returned to run the company in 1996, Apple was given as a company about to disappear.

The recent success of Apple is tied to the performance of the company in mobile industry. The iPad, launched in early 2010, has recreated the tablet market, which had appeared ten years before, but without reaching significance. Among smartphones, the iPhone faces competition from devices with Android, Google, but remains as the best selling model.

The hacker group Anonymous, responsible for a series of attacks on websites of governments, companies and credit card network games online PlayStation Network (PSN), Sony announced it will hold a mass attack against Facebook in November 5. The goal of the criminals is to overthrow the site, which has more than 700 million registered users.

The attack was confirmed through Twitter and a video posted on YouTube. In it, the recording says that social networking has helped governments, “selling information to users and ensuring access to clandestine security firms to spy on people all over the world.”

The 5th of November was chosen to be related to the comic book “V for Vendetta,” whose main character, Guy Fawkes is remembered by members of Anonymous in the use of the mask feature presented in the series.

They even say in the statement that “everything you do on Facebook is the social network, regardless of privacy settings,” and that “it is impossible to delete the account because the data are stored on Facebook.” “Facebook knows more about you than your family,” says the message.

The group also warns that the day of the attack “will go down in history.”

Even Twitter, Anonymous posted a message saying that he was organizing what it calls “Operation Facebook” (# opfacebook), but not all members agreed or participated in the preparation of the attack.

There are suspicions that the attacks are to try to strengthen the social network Anon +, created by the gruop. The community site for Google + service was banned by Google, which would have angered members of Anonymous.

Facebook would not comment on the threats so far.
