In the past few weeks, we’ve seen Facebook present staggeringly innovative ideas.

Facebook Lite.

Mostly centered around status updates.

Twitter at least keeps me updated with news/articles/blogs from climbing, mountaineering, art, travel, local & global publications; let's not forget updates from Elephant Journal 🙂
