How to Restore Instagram to Your Twitter Stream

If you want to take advantage of Instagram’s beautiful new tilt-shift features, but can’t get away from your Twitter stream, install this free Chrome extension, Instatwit, on your browser to enjoy the best of both worlds. Sorry Firefox and IE, this is only available for Chrome users.

Users on mobile could still experience the in-Twitter Instagram experience with apps like Tweetbot. Another workaround is by using this IFTTT recipe that bypasses Instagram’s turning off of Twitter cards.

Facebook Rolls Out Redesigned Events; Users Can Choose Calendar Or List Format (AllFacebook)
Facebook’s overhaul of its events feature took a big step forward Wednesday, enabling users to view their events in either a calendar or list format, with the changes originating from one of the social network’s hackathon events. Wednesday’s introduction of the calendar and list formats followed Facebook’s moves in June to allow users to export events to users’ calendars and introduction of a revamped gear menu, as well as a test by the social network, also in June, of notifications alerting event organizers when their invites were declined. VentureBeat The new and improved Facebook Events with calendar and list view comes with a few niceties. Facebook members can respond to invites and leave birthday messages without leaving the Events page. Posts, photos, and videos are a part of the experience as well. Mashable Calendar view is gradually rolling out to all Facebook users. You can check it out by going to your Events page on Facebook and then clicking the “Calendar” tab on the top left side of the screen.

New Facebook Tool Helps Organ Donors ‘Share Life’ (ABC News/Good Morning America) In an exclusive interview with ABC News, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced today the addition of a new tool on Facebook that will allow users to share their organ donor status with their friends. Users can add that they are organ donors to their Facebook timeline, and share their story about when, where or why they decided to become donors. ABC News Conversations over the dinner table with his med-student girlfriend helped Zuckerberg formulate this big idea. And it was his friendship with Apple founder Steve Jobs, whose life was extended by years following a liver transplant, in part, that spurred the 27-year-old Facebook founder and CEO to help put that idea into practice.
