> SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) — Facebook Inc.’s shares sank on its second day of trading on Monday, with the stock falling below its IPO price and weighing down the shares of others in the social-networking space.
By the closing bell, Facebook shares were off 11% to $34.03. The stock made its debut on Friday, closing with a gain of less than 1% following technical glitches and signs of weak demand that forced its underwriters to step in and support the shares. Read full story on Facebook’s IPO.
The lackluster debut and second-day slump cast a further pall over what was expected to be one of the hottest stock offerings in years. During the investor roadshow last week leading up to the deal’s pricing, Facebook raised both the price range and share count of the offering — indicating strong demand for the shares.
“We believe the underwriters overestimated demand,” wrote Michael Pachter of Wedbush Securities in a note to clients on Monday.
Over the weekend, officials for the Nasdaq acknowledged problems with the way the exchange handled the high-profile IPO last week. One problem reportedly related to how the exchange’s system processed order cancellations. Read WSJ reports on Nasdaq troubles with Facebook IPO.
Also on Monday, two analysts began formal coverage of the stock on Monday, with mixed reviews.
Richard Greenfield of BTIG Research set a neutral rating on the shares, saying he finds the company’s current valuation “unappealing” given signs of slowing revenue growth and challenges with its core advertising business.
“While the value/impact of advertising is always subjective, advertising on social media has been scrutinized to a greater degree as brands (and investors) wonder whether consumers are interested in brand messaging while they are engaging in social networking,” Greenfield wrote. “This goes one step further, when consumers are on mobile devices, such as a smartphone, where using Facebook is more like a utility (think e-mail or BBM), than a media platform to interact with brands.”
Herman Leung of Susquehanna set a positive, or buy, rating on the shares, with a $48 price target. He noted that the company captured only a tiny portion of global advertising spending in 2011 despite its massive platform, which he thinks will improve as an advertising engine.
Facebook glitch bad for Nasdaq
Facebook's IPO should have re-established Nasdaq as the go-to market for a new generation of technology companies. Instead, it revealed shortcomings for the exchange. Jacob Bunge has details on The News Hub.
“With its unique value proposition, we think Facebook is well positioned to benefit at the top of the marketing funnel, where the company is enabling branded advertisers to drive awareness, interest and consideration and longer term, as it moves further down the marketing funnel, where it can generate more results for direct marketing companies,” Leung wrote.
The selloff in Facebook appeared to weigh on other stocks in the social networking space. Zynga Inc. fell nearly 1% to by early afternoon, moderating from an earlier drop of more than 5%. The social-game maker derives the majority of its revenue from Facebook. Professional social network LinkedIn Corp. also fell nearly 1%.

Like Milo before it, Wishpond launched in late 2010 to build a local search engine that aggregates realtime inventory and product listings from brick and mortar retail stores — from big chains to mom and pop shops read here. The startup has since focused its efforts on developing social commerce solutions for retailers, launching tools like Social Store, which allows any business to quickly create and deploy a storefront for their businesses on Facebook.
While Wishpond, like so many others, is looking to capitalize on the growing interest in social commerce, its solutions have really been developed as means by which to expand on its core competency: Consumer-facing product aggregation and search for retailers. And today, Wishpond is leveraging its technology for the sake of a segment underserved by eCommerce solutions: Shopping malls, launching Mall360, a service that enables malls and shopping centers to offer their shoppers a browsable, searchable product discovery app that works across their Web, social, and mobile properties
As eCommerce solutions mature, more and more consumers are doing their shopping online, from start to finish. However, while 90 percent of shopping begins online today, the majority of people still prefer to buy products live, in local stores, rather than online. For the most part, shopping malls are still in a past decade when it comes to their approach to eCommerce, even though customers continue to visit their stores when they’re ready to buy.
Mall360 gives shopping malls a way to increase their visibility online in a way that lets them better understand and influence potential customers while they’re in the process of making their purchasing decisions, while they’re searching, talking about products with friends, and planning their next excursion to the mall.
For outlets that may house dozens of brick and mortar retail stores, Mall360 lets visitors search and browse through all the products found at the shopping center through visiting the mall’s Facebook page and clicking on a “Sho

Back in October, GroSocial raised $450K in seed funding from the Kickstart Seed Fund, Monarch Ventures, Rock & Hammer Ventures and a handful of angel investors. The seed funding acted as early validation and fuel for the Utah-based startup, which is on a mission to help SMBs — and organizations that lack the resources to train or hire dedicated social media teams — boost customer engagement and monetization via social media.
Today, the Utah-based social media marketing company has officially received further validation from investors, with the announcement that it has closed an additional $1 million in funding. Each of the investors that participated in the startup’s initial financing have re-upped, along with a handful of newcomers, including HubSpot Co-founder and CTO Dharmesh Shah and HubSpot CMO Mike Volpe.
Thus far, GroSocial has focused its efforts primarily on Facebook, but with the new capital, Co-founder and CEO Zach Mangum tells us that the startup will be expanding its scope to include integrations with other social networks in an effort to become the “Buddy Media for SMBs.”
Since October, GroSocial’s partner list has grown to include Yellow Pages, LegalZoom, SurveyMonkey, and HubSpot, among others, adding to the thousands of businesses (across some 20+ countries) already using its products. The startup is also in the process of working with a number of SMB aggregators to white label its platform and sell it as their own social media marketing product.
For some context, GroSocial has been primarily focused on its flagship “Customizer” platform, which allows brand managers to launch custom-designed promotional tabs on their Facebook partner networks. Partners can use those tabs to run contests, offer promotions, coupons, services, or to add videos. Managers can choose to add a “like gate,” meaning that customers must “like” the company’s brand page in order to access the promotions that live on the tabs, and have the ability to choose which parts of its tabs can be modified by partners and take advantage of engagement statistics.
And, thanks to integrations with services like SurveyMonkey, users can not only use the drag and drop application to design custom content for Facebook pages, but take advantage of social distribution of surveys, collecting feedback from Facebook fans as they visit your brand pages.
As for what’s next, according to David Cohen of AllFacebook, GroSocial will be looking to expand its offerings to small to mid-sized marketing agencies, enabling access to white-label services — something traditionally reserved for larger agencies with more sizable social marketing budgets. Agencies will be able to resell GroSocial services at a price point that begins at $200 per month, making it easy to turn a profit and recoup costs.
This new functionality will allow GroSocial to become both a content and training provider for the many small-to-midsize marketing agencies out there, allowing the startup to monetize as it scales, while reducing the headache agencies find when trying to juggle the implementation of their clients’ social media marketing initiatives while managing their accounts.
Though GroSocial has been targeting SMBs, using Facebook as the foundation for its apps, with its new funding in tow, the startup will be looking to expand to other social networks as well as court larger companies, building on the recent additions of eBay and SkullCandy to its client roster. Mangum said that he expects GroSocial to pass 50,000 paying customers by the end of the year, which, along with the funding, will enable the startup to double its headcount.

>Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) May 13, 2012 Vetted International, Ltd. (http://www.vetted-intl.com) continues its support of the Department of Defense by providing services to US contractors in the collection and storage of DNA. Generally, all contractor personnel who support U.S. Forces in contingency operations are required to collect and store DNA for the period for which an employee is deployed overseas in support of contingency operations according to the MOD 11 to the USCENTCOM Individual Protection and Individual-Unit Deployment Policy. Medical personnel, both employed and contracted by Vetted International, collect DNA specimen samples for use in identification of human remains if needed. “A bloodstain DNA card specimen has proven itself far superior to previous identification methods,” says Brenda Williams RN, MPH of Vetted Corporate Headquarters. “The process used by Vetted International is the preferred method of casualty identification by the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs.” Furthermore, having a DNA sample on file is a way for a company to be proactive and account for their personnel in case disaster strikes. It is also a way to assist the families of deployed personnel in healing and closure. DNA is stored as part of the medical record inside a secure vault protected by state of the art security systems, environmental controls, and strict access control policies. US citizen specimens are stored in the Vetted International DNA Bank or are transported directly to the Armed Forces Repository Specimen Sample for Identification of Remains (AFRSSIR). Contrary to the AFRSSIR, non-US citizen contractors can have their DNA stored in the Vetted International DNA Bank as well as US citizens. Vetted International is currently collecting DNA worldwide while storing and conducting analysis in the United States. “DNA is private and personal and Vetted International understands the complex legal and ethical guidelines associated with collecting and storing DNA. Protecting an individual’s health record, a person’s DNA sample and their privacy is of paramount importance,” added Ashley Nicholson, the Technical Services Case Manager at Vetted Corporate Headquarters. Vetted International’s staff is fully HIPAA compliant and only authorized individuals have access to the bank. The DNA will never be used for any other purpose than identification of remains and the sample can be destroyed after exiting the theater per the donor’s request. Vetted International’s DNA Bank is secure, private and reliable. About Vetted International:

Facebook has revealed that its HTML5 site has twice as many users as its iOS and Android apps combined. But that’s actually a problem, because Apple and Google’s mobile browsers don’t support photo uploads or high-performance animation for HTML5 — features that are crucial to getting Facebook mobile site users sharing more and convincing app developers to port to HTML5 where Facebook can tax payments http://melanyor.multiply.com/journal/item/13/Perfect_Colors_for_Wiggles_Party_Decorations.
To encourage mobile browser advancement, Facebook formed the W3C community group, but Apple and Google, the two partners it needs most, have refused to join. Since these oft-rivals to the social network own the dominant mobile browsers Safari and Chrome, Facebook’s efforts may have little impact, HTML5 apps and games will stay inferior, and both Facebook and the end user will miss out.
The audience for great HTML5 apps could be huge. When Facebook stopped reporting the user counts of its iOS and Android apps to AppData, Android had 95 million MAU, iPhone had 105 million MAU, and iPad had 20 million MAU. Given their trajectory they could now have well over 235 million combined monthly active users, and so could its HTML5 site. As of a few months ago, Facebook was driving 120 million visits a month to HTML5 apps. This all means Facebook has a big financial incentive to push the advancement of mobile browser standards.
Facebook doesn’t view its HTML5 app support as a traditional mobile app platform like iOS or Android. Rather it thinks of itself as a social layer that’s integrated into iOS, Android, and HTML5, but that happens to support payments for mobile web apps. The core of Facebook’s business is advertising, but it still makes healthy revenues from the 30% Credits tax on its web game canvas. As more and more gaming shifts to mobile, though, it would help if HTML5 was good enough to support advanced apps that Facebook could then offer viral distribution for and monetize in return.
To fill us in on how it’s trying to jumpstart mobile browser progress, Facebook recently brought several journalists to its headquarters to meet Jam

Over the previous 10 “Comcast Cares Days” Comcast volunteers have dedicated more than 2.1 million hours of service. The Company has also contributed more than $10.5 million in grants to organizations nationwide. Comcast Cares Day is one way that Comcast helps to power dreams and demonstrate a year-round commitment to making a difference in the communities it serves.
“Today, for the 11th time since 2001, we once again celebrate Comcast Cares Day. Since the program’s inception, more than 360,000 Comcast employees, their families and friends have contributed their time to their communities,” said Mary McLaughlin, Senior Vice President of Comcast’s Western New England Region, which includes Connecticut. “Today, we will surpass 2.5 million total hours of service. Comcast Cares Day is about coming together to have a positive impact on our communities, and I am truly proud to join my fellow employees as we continue in that mission.”
Comcast volunteers will spend the day doing community clean-up, landscaping, and painting, and will install two “Born Learning Trails” – one in Branford and one in Waterbury — in partnership with the United Way of Greater New Haven and the United Way of Greater Waterbury, respectively. A Born Learning Trail is a set of fun, physical learning activities that parents or caregivers can play with young children in an outdoor setting, arranged on a walking trail. Comcast volunteers installed New Haven’s first Born Learning Trail at the Conte West Hills School during the 2008 Comcast Cares Day, Hartford’s first trail at Burns Elementary School the following year and Middletown’s first trail at Snow Elementary School in 2010.
The Comcast Cares Day 2012 Connecticut community partners and projects include the following:
Foote Memorial Park in Branford–general park clean up and installation of a Born Learning Trail in partnership with the United Way of Greater New Haven Big Green Clean-Up Day in Hartford–community clean-up in Hartford’s north end; landscaping, mulching, tree planting, cleaning empty lots & refurbishing a community garden North End Action Team in Middletown–installing a community garden and neighborhood clean-up Immanuel Baptist Shelter & Columbus House in New Haven–painting, general clean up and landscaping Martin House, Inc. in Norwich–painting, landscaping, general clean-up & work on the “Martin Cafe” coffee bar Urban League of Southern CT in Stamford–painting, landscaping and general clean up Fulton Park in Waterbury-general park clean up and installation of a Born Learning Trail in partnership with the United Way of Greater Waterbury Recycling Event with NBC Connecticut in West Hartford-paper recycling drive
Charisse Lillie, Vice President of Community Investment for Comcast Corporation and President of the Comcast Foundation, who is also a graduate of Wesleyan University and Yale Law School, will join Comcast volunteers at the Middletown Comcast Cares Day project. While on site, Lillie will present the North End Action Team and the Macdonough School each with a $12,500 grant from the Comcast Foundation.
Some of Comcast’s community partners will also join the cause. For example, FIRST Connecticut, a non-profit organization that provides science and technology programs for young people, will be providing 130 volunteers from their FIRST Robotics teams at the Stamford, New Haven, West Hartford and Waterbury sites. “I am thrilled, but not surprised by the tremendous response from our teams,” said Sue Glasspiegel, Regional Director of FIRST Connecticut. “Community service is ingrained in the FIRST culture and we welcome the opportunity to participate in this great day of community outreach.”
The Comcast Foundation will also provide grants to local community partner organizations across the country on behalf of each employee and family member who volunteers on Comcast Cares Day. The grants will help Comcast’s community partners continue their mission of serving the community throughout the year.

>Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) April 18, 2012 Akademos, Inc., a leading provider of integrated online bookstores and marketplaces for educational institutions, announced today that it has launched the Akademos Textbook Adoption Tool, which is the most comprehensive online portal for faculty to choose textbooks based on quality and value. With the cost of textbooks skyrocketing and many students choosing to forgo their book purchases, the Akademos Textbook Adoption Tool aims to reduce textbook costs by allowing faculty to access and compare textbooks across 3,600 subjects and 2 million books. “For the first time, faculty have access to the most comprehensive library of course materials sourced from both traditional publishers and open source providers,” said Brian Jacobs, founder and president of Akademos. “Our aim is to provide the right platform for faculty to easily discover the best course materials for better learning outcomes.” “There is a clear need for innovative solutions that help bring down the costs of textbooks for college students,” said Dean Florez, former California State Senator and president and CEO of the Twenty Million Minds Foundation. “It is imperative that we eliminate the unnecessary hurdles to educational content affordability. The Akademos Textbook Adoption Tool is an example of a new platform that helps achieve this by allowing faculty to choose the right content based on cost and quality.” Following are some key features of the Akademos Textbook Adoption Tool:
Easy Discovery: With over 3,600 subjects and more than 2 million books, the Akademos Textbook Adoption Tool provides for easy discovery and comparison of course materials. The Akademos Comparison WheelSM allows faculty to find their courses, view relevant textbooks by school adoptions, and even “follow” textbooks for later adoption—providing the ability to better discover learning materials for future classes. More Affordable, Higher Quality Materials: Thanks to the Akademos AI, a proprietary affordability algorithm that rates more than 2 million textbooks, faculty can sort materials by affordability while they also evaluate textbook quality. Faculty can compare quality and costs together in a direct, side-by-side matrix. Comprehensive Library of New Learning Materials: For the first time, faculty can search for traditional textbooks from both large and small publishers, including digital and eBooks, as well as new Open Educational Resource (OER) textbooks and content. This unbiased resource allows educators to examine innovative new products in the context of conventional learning materials and consider how they meet their instructional needs. Faculty Peer Reviews: Unlike sites like Amazon.com or Barnes & Noble, the Akademos Textbook Adoption Tool offers peer reviews from faculty. This will provide a foundation for faculty and administrators to make the right decisions when it comes to choosing textbooks and other course materials. “Professors and instructors seek an unbiased way to assess textbook quality and fit, thus professor reviews of textbooks and ancillary materials they have used are key,” said John Squires, CEO of Akademos. “Faculty feedback also suggests that discovering more affordable textbooks is a challenge because non-commercial materials such as OER texts are difficult to find and compare. What we think professors really want to know is, ‘How do I find the highest quality textbook with the best affordability, which fits my coursework and my students’ needs?’” The Akademos Textbook Adoption Tool is launching on April 18, 2012 with a webinar featuring a number of speakers from the higher education sector, as well as a full demonstration of the new offering. You can register for the webinar here. In addition, the Akademos Textbook Adoption Tool is complimentary for faculty, and can be accessed here: http://www.adoption.akademos.com About Akademos
Akademos offers a turnkey virtual bookstore and marketplace. Its advanced technology, comprehensive supply-chain solution, and commitment to responsive personal service make it a leader in providing affordable course materials and digital learning tools for schools. Students can choose new, used, marketplace, rental, and eBooks while schools can reduce costs and enjoy greater operating efficiency.

Rockstar Games is known for not pulling any punches with its incredibly popular video games offered on consoles, desktops, and mobile gaming devices. Frequently controversial and in the headlines for all the wrong reasons, Rockstar’s games are violent and give players the freedom to do whatever they want — both good and bad blog.
This week, Rockstar added another of its classic games to the iTunes App Store with the same dark, compelling storylines and action-oriented gameplay that made the developer famous. So leave your morality at the door and make sure the kids are in bed, because when you’re dealing with the gangster underworld in this collection of games, you often have to make deadly decisions.
This week’s collection of iOS apps is not for kids, but there is an enormous amount of dark underworld content to explore. The first game started on mobile gaming devices and is a huge hit for its top-down open world and interesting use of the touch screen. The second lets you play in a similarly gritty world in full 3D with the game that made Rockstar the megapopular gaming company it is today. The third is the latest from the developer to reach iOS devices, and it offers the same dark storyline and gun-blasting action that made the original a hit.
Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars ($9.99) for iPhone or iPad) brings the popular handheld title to iOS devices and it does not suffer at all from being on a touch screen.
Drive to quest markers to complete missions, but don't startle the cops unless you want a chase.
Grand Theft Auto games tend to delve deep into the gangster lifestyle. As in all of the GTA games, you’ll be sent on missions to steal cars, take out rival gangsters, and carry out other nefarious activities. You view the action from a top-down (yet 3D) perspective and the control system involves an
