By Melony Roy
Gangham Style sets new record
Nearly two years after its release “Gangnam Style” continues to be hugely popular.
The summer hit by Korean pop star Psy has broken the two-billion-views mark on YouTube making it the most popular video ever uploaded to the site.
Twitter switches font
Twitter has changed its primary web font from Helvetica Neue to Gotham Narrow SSm.
The font change appears on the Twitter.com site, user profiles and sidebars, and on tweets and individual tweet pages.
There was no formal announcement on its blog, but Twitter did share news of the change from the @Support account.
Gotham has been used in President Barack Obama’s campaign and in the new logo for One World Trade Center.
Myspace wants you back
Remember Myspace? The social network that started it all wants you back.
The company is emailing users old photos of themselves in hopes of getting them to return to Myspace.
According to Mashable, the emails include one or two old photos and a line that reads, “The good, the rad and the what were you thinking…” along with a link that takes users to their profile.
