RebelMouse launched in June 2012 much to journalists’ delight. Entrepreneurs, social media buffs, news stations (see King5Seattle), and tech sites, all embraced this darling new social media aggregator. You can easily scroll curated information from Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Instagram, Tumblr, etc. that displays “In One Place.”
Many RebelMouse users simply reorganize their own stories, videos and photos to create their own Social Front Page Newsfeed.
RebelMouse sports an image-rich layout that depicts your social media shared interests with Pinterest-style. Check out my Sherrie Rose Rebel Mouse page.
RebelMouse is created by former Huffington Post CTO Paul Berry and he wants RebelMouse to be the front page to your online life while displaying your tweets, posts and stories. You can create and curate hundreds of sites. Here’s Paul Berry’s description of RebelMouse

Facebook Messenger Takes Over Your Desktop

Here’s the added blog feed to Sherrie Rose’s LinkedIn profile:
What’s interesting is how social media really gets relevant in real-time because just prior to reading the Google+ post by Bruce I had pinned an image to Pinterest.
The image came from Ragan (same producer of the 12 LinkedIn secrets to supercharge your social networking from PR Daily article) that got on the radar because of a Facebook “conversation” by Mari Smith in a closed group about webinars just prior to reading the Google Plus post by Bruce Bates. See two Pinterest images below and click the image to take you to Pinterest to repin, like, or comment:
Some webinars are free and the free webinars often include a offer at the end to purchase something. There are fee webinars, like the ones at Ragan, that are more corporate oriented. You purchase a whole course, including video, on Pinterest for less that the 75 minute webinar. You just need to know where to look for Pinterest – Click here if interested
