    Add FaceBook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Other Social Profiles to iPhone Contacts



    Many of your contacts probably have social profiles they use on services like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Flickr, and these social profiles can be added to their existing contact card information easily in iOS. Here’s how:

    Open Contacts and tap a contact that you wish to edit

    Tap the “Edit” button in the upper right corner

    Scroll down and tap on “Add Field” and then select “Twitter” for Twitter, or “Profile” for Facebook

    Enter the contacts Twitter username in the field then hit “Return” to see “Facebook” appear as an additional entry point directly below, enter the Facebook username and hit return to see additional social profiles for other services including Flickr, Linkedin, and even Myspace

    Once the contacts social profiles have been added, you can then tap on them to perform various tasks. With Twitter profiles, you can then directly send a tweet to the user, or view that users tweets from the Twitter app. Tapping on the username of other social profiles will either open the respective app if it’s installed on the device, or launch Safari directly to their profile.

    If you discover a few cards of the same person you can merge duplicates easily, and don’t forget to back up the contacts list if you spend a lot of time customizing the entries.

    Apple Talking About Investing In Twitter [Report]

    These do look pretty cool together.



    Ping never had a chance, the way it was tied into Apple iTunes, but a recent report may show the way to Apple’s eventual success in the social media space. According to a report in the New York Times, “people briefed on the matter” say that Apple has been talking with the social media startup about making a strategic investment.
    The numbers bandied about include an Apple investment stake of hundreds of millions of dollars, which might then in turn increase Twitter’s already high valuation of around $8.4 billion to a nicer-looking $10 billion.

    While Apple and Twitter are not currently in negotiations, a stronger financial partnership would make a lot of sense, especially as Twitter continues to integrate more strongly with each iteration of Apple’s iOS mobile software, as well as a stronger integration on the Mac desktop with Mac OS X Mountain LIon. Facebook debuts as a more integrated service in upcoming iOS 6, but the relationship between the house of Zuck and the house of Jobs is tenuous at best, ever since the two companies were unable to make a deal to include Facebook features within Ping. Google, of course, is pushing it’s own social media presence, with Google Plus, and – oh yeah – also competes quite directly with Apple via the Android mobile operating system.

    Investing in social media superstar Twitter would be a different approach for the typically buy-em-and-subsume-em Apple, but it would definitely raise Apples social media street-cred. Twitter’s growth into the market has been unparalleled, gaining more than 140 million monthly active users (MAUs) in a very short time. Twitter would benefit from the above-mentioned boost in valuation, a first for the social media business, as Facebook’s weak debut on the financial market still casts a pall over the web company. Twitter doesn’t need the money, per se, with a reported $600 million in cash and $1 billion in financing it’s garnered from investors and advertising.

    It would be fantastic if these two companies connect, though, as Apple really doesn’t seem to “get” social media, and Twitter isn’t bound to compete with Apple in any obvious way. A partnership, even a limited one via an investment strategy, makes sense.
