Yes, we know it’s been a while since the last social media round-up but we’ve been busy living it up at CES! But hey, we’re back now and we’ve been trawling the web to find you cool sites from the world of social media. Enjoy.

Facebook, the club, is set to open next week in the Brazilian Amazon, yes that’s right! 30 year-old founder Humbert Camacho is launching a club that is set to have the same concept as the social networking site. Club goers will be able to share experiences, photos and socialise with others all in the midst of some of the region’s best DJs. Brings a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘jungle music’, doesn’t it?!
A few of us finally got out invites through for Pinterest this week and we’re absolutely loving it! Definitely a worthwhile tool for consumer brands too, especially those targeting women. Some interesting stats released this week revealed that 70% of Pinners are female, as well as a reported 3.3 million users logging more than 421 million page views so a huge audience to target.
