Where Facebook events seem like an annoyance, Google delivers an enjoyable experience with ‘Party Mode’.
From the small, but noticeable design touches to the capability of everything being gathered like a real event Google releases how an event feature should quite possibly behave.
More to come on what Google is doing with Google+.
“Your turn Tumblr and Facebook” says Twitter with their new flying #Twitterbird.
Twitter has officially said this and never will. Facebook has matured with a 900 million user count so the word “facebook” or just letter “f” is a good enough symbol. Tumblr could come up with something but now that the infamous Twitter has forgone their “t” for branding they can ensure that will be their “t”.
Keep in mind though, despite Twitter being strict on what not to use anymore there will still be people out of the loop and two lowercase “t”s will be around.
Symbols without any typography are powerful, but that’s not to say you can make a specific letter or font spelling out your name with the specific colors be just as powerful. It’s a matter of choice. I like where Twitter is going.
