“OK time for trending question of the day: What is bulaga and why should one eat it?” Twitter user jerseysam asked earlier this afternoon when Eat Bulaga entered the list of Twitter’s trending topics.
With new social networking sites that followed Twitter, Plurk, and Jaiku, a social networker like me couldn’t help but wish that I could update all my services at the same time. Hellotxt.com and Ping.fm made it possible.
But what if I want to use my cellphone — particularly the text messaging service, since connecting to GPRS or 3G remains costly? Today, I learned that it is also possible with the help of Ping.fm and Yahoo! Messenger for SMS.
Yahoo! oneConnect promises to make it easy to stay connected as it allows users to integrate all their contacts and send text and YM messages. The mobile application may also be used to post status and view friends’ updates on Twitter, Facebook, and other social networks.
