Deals giant Groupon has acquired Mertado, a social shopping company that helps customers discover new products.

This is the first of two articles about how to engage and optimise the Long Tail of your affiliate programme.

So how does this apply to affiliate marketing?
Today MTV, in partnership with Get Schooled and the College Board, launched "My College Dollars," a new Facebook app that matches US students with financial aid opportunities. Once you sign up, you are targeted with scholarships based on information collected by Facebook such as your age, gender and state.
For the next 6 weeks, students can also take part in the "My College Dollars Sweepstakes." If they connect to the app and save a scholarship deadline to their calendar, or, as it usually is with socially driven contests, share the app with a friend, they can enter to win. Prizes include tickets to the "2012 MTV Music Awards" or gift cards to cover school supplies. They suggest books and fees, though knowing college students, some of it will go on beer.
So why is this app so important?
Music is arguably one of the most popular things in the world (who doesn't listen to music), but it isn't exactly easy being a musician. That's particularly true for indie artists who don't have huge audiences and major record label backing.
The pains of the music industry, coupled with its overall sexiness as a business, have made the music space one of the most popular for startups.

TV monitoring service SnapStream has made its software available to Mac users, potentially opening up a huge new marketplace among media agencies.
Its new web-based video player and Mac client allows users to search, record and clip recorded TV shows.
There is no doubt that 2011 has been a record-breaking year for social video.
It was the year Volkswagen’s ‘The Force’ ad stormed the SuperBowl to become the most shared ad of all time in just six days, jumping from 100,000 to 1m views in just a few hours.
It was the year that Charlie Sheen, thanks to some hilarious interviews, gained 1m followers in 25 hours and 17 minutes on Twitter, earning himself a Guinness World Record for the fastest person to a million followers.
It was also the year that saw online beat TV to the number one ad spend spot for the first time.
With social video being included as an ad format in its own right, ad spend continued to follow the 100% growth year on year trend that started in 2008.
So what does 2012 hold for online video?
