The Samsung manufactured Google Nexus S has a number of
impressive features for social networking. These include Facebook and Twitter
integration with dedicated apps available for each one, as well as other social
media features such as YouTube and Picasa Integration.
Facebook is the most popular social networking site in the
world. With over 500 million members logging on to the site daily, it offers a
convenient means of staying connected to friends, family and colleagues all
over the world, free of charge. The Google Nexus S has a dedicated Facebook app
which allows users to carry out nearly all of the functions you would be able
to on a computer. By using the app
(which often has updates available via Android Market) you are able to update
your status as well as like and comment on your friends statuses, posts and
photos etc. When you take a photo or shoot some video footage using the phones
camera, you also have the option to directly upload it without even having to
login to your Facebook account, thanks to an option to do this directly.
Twitter integration is a big part of the social networking
scene. It is growing rapidly, and offers a great way for people to follow
individual and celebrities. The Google Nexus S has Twitter integrations, which
similarly to its Facebook app, allows users to carry out the majority of the
functions that they would be able to on a computer. You can post an update
(known as Tweeting) directly from the app, as well as follow new people and
keep tabs of your following list. The fact that the Google Nexus S has Twitter
integration makes it perfect for live updates on the go, as you can post a new
message in seconds no matter where you are.
YouTube and Picasa
The Google Nexus S comes with a 5 megapixel digital camera
built in. Once you have taken a snapshot or video clip which is worthy of
sharing with the online world, users have the ability to instantly post their
handiwork to the appropriate site. Once you have shot some video footage, you
have the option to instantly post it to your YouTube account, meaning that it
is only a matter of seconds between filming, and making it available to the
millions of YouTube viewers. The same goes for Picasa; except this site
concentrates on still images rather than video. All you need is a free account
with the site, and you can then upload your photos almost instantly.
Social networking is becoming increasingly popular, and
thanks to the level of integration with the appropriate sites the Google Nexus
S offers, it has never been easier to keep up to date on the go. Of course, the
Google Nexus S offers many more features, but in terms of social networking
integration it is the ideal phone for those who like to share their
experiences, videos and photos with their friends and family.
