Out now - Social Media Podcast No.34 - Google's Android and Apple's iOS get the boxing gloves on...

In Social Media Podcast Gordon White and Kyle Murdoch from fatBuzz are joined by Iain Murray or Europa Services and Tim Barlow and Joel Lumsden of Attacat for a lively discussion about the latest news from the world of social media.

During our chat we examine the new Motorola Xoom and inevitably compare it to the new iPad 2 and during that discussion we talk about the absence of other players in the market, particularly Microsoft.

Following this we look at a whole host of subjects with the usual light hearted banter; subjects include the popularity of Twitter, Paper.li and an interesting introduction to Storify. Microsoft also come under fire for their attempt at Quick Response codes with Microsoft Tag and we ask if Google +1 is just the latest attempt by Google to get into Social Media.

The Social Media Podcast would be incomplete without the latest chat about Facebook so, we touch on their continued dominance, the new Facebook Questions and, controlling the News Feed. During this chat we also look at other social media sites like Wayne's World and ask if any of these can really make any dent in the popularity of Facebook.

On the App front, we look at BA's (British Airways) new App for Executive Club members and Tripit.

As usual, the podcast is rounded off with an update about the New Media Breakfast when we bring you details of the next three breakfasts in Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Finally, if you would like top be on a podcast either in person or, via Skype, please contact me at gordon@fatbuzz.com and we will try to get it organised.
