Echo, best known for its online commenting tools, recently launched an ambitious service called StreamServer to aid brands in creating their own "white label" social media sites. Media brands like ESPN and Newsweek want to capitalize on the investment in their content. The problem is that the attention of consumers and lucrative revenue streams are focused on on social sites like Twitter and Facebook. Echo StreamServer API aims to tip the balance in favor of brands by offering the tools to forge scalable near real-time social sites of their own.
Favstar, a service that helps users "find great tweets and interesting people to follow", has announced that it will be shutting down next month because of changes Twitter is making to its APIs. Favstar's creator, Tim Haines, was left with no choice but to shut his service down due to API changes.
