In today's Consumer Minute, Justin Bieber is making a $1.1 million investment in a new social network.  It's called "shots of me." It focuses on teens and is set to launch this week.

Good news for "do it yourselfers."  Google is launching a new video service that gives you real help from real people in real time.  It's called "Google helpouts."  It will offer advice from a variety of fields.  Some "helpouts" will be free of charge; others will have a per-session fee.

If you like big burgers, check out what Burger King is offering up.  It's called the "Big King."  It was sold in limited markets back in 1997 and now the fast food chain is trying it again.  Some critics are saying it looks a lot like the McDonald's Big Mac.
