In case you missed what happened over the past week, here’s our top five and don’t forget – if you see anything that really impresses you, why not let us know by emailing on Perhaps your suggestion will make the cut next week:

1. Superbowl is the most checked into venue on Foursquare with a record 200,000 check-ins.

2. Great infographic, right, showing a breakdown of Linkedin users

3. New ‘Life Caching’ trend catches on with this latest platform from MyHistro. Life caching is collecting, storing and displaying your whole life; think of it like Foursquare on steroids.

4. Storify takes citizen journalism to the next level, with social media updates creating online stories. Could this be a foretaste of how journalism is changing because of social media?

5. The demographic of Facebook and Twitter users compared.
