Wi-Five is a daily collection of five notable, eye-catching social media, pop culture and/or tech-related stories from around the Web.
- In an effort to reclaim users' right to control their own personal data, a new app called Citizenme helps you collect and analyze your social media data and provide a way to sell it to advertisers of your own choosing, rather than, say, Facebook's. What a novel idea.
- Speaking of social media marketing, here's an interesting piece on how Instagram users are getting their photos in front of brands, and even getting paid for it.
- It seems as Twitter usage becomes more prevalent, each new sporting event has a chance to lay claim to "most tweeted-about sports game ever." And just like that, yesterday's Brazil vs. Germany match has inherited the title.
- Remember that "right to be forgotten" law we told you about a few months ago? That's the European law that requires search links like Google to give web users the ability to erase links to web pages they feel invade their privacy. In response, Google provided a digital request form. Now, it looks like Microsoft's Bing is taking the same approach, and is said to roll out a request form next week.
- Stop the presses. A collection of Seinfeld-inspired emoji could be available on your iPhone very soon. A free iOS app called, appropriately enough, Seinfeld Emoji, has been submitted to Apple's app store and is awaiting approval as we speak. Newman!
