Nokia Teaser



Nokia USA has posted a series of teaser images on Facebook with June 18, 2012 on them, which naturally caused quite a stir. Initially, it was thought that Nokia's news will be somewhat related to Microsoft's announcement, which is bound to take place on the same date. A careful examination of the photos however points at an announcement of Nokia 808 Pureview availability in the United States.

Facebook App

After the major update for their iOS App, Facebook updated all its iOS Apps on the iTunes Store including (Facebook Camera, Messenger, Page Manager).




The Update brings more stable versions of the App with faster browsing & sharing just like the New Facebook App that focus on the performance. Unlike Facebook for android which is "SUCKS!" compared to the iOS App according to the android users reviews on Google Play store. Why facebook take care of iOS users over android users ?


Facebook Android

These posters you see above is from Facebook's Menlo Park campus as Facebook is telling its employees to switch to Android and leave their iPhones (which the company have given them). The reason behind this was they knew that the Android version of their app sucks and that they wanted their employees to teest their app and report back on what's wrong with it.


Facebook Android poster

Facebook employees get to try the latest and greatest versions of the apps before everyone else. Their version also has a feature called "Rage Shake", where the user just shakes their phone when they come across an issue and it gets reported automatically.

However, with most of the employees at Facebook using iPhones, they weren't getting enough data on the Android app to know what's wrong with it, so this initiative for asking the employees to switch is a step to correct that problem.

Facebook Opera


After acquire Instagram for a $1 billion dollars, Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO, is expected to acquire Opera Software too, according to recent reports.

The reason Facebook might be interested in acquiring Opera is the increased mobile traffic to the social network, which the company is unable to fully take advantage of. Buying Opera might be a huge step in solving this problem, according to analysts, and if Zuckerbeg wants to make this happen, he might have to fork out north of a billion dollars.



Because of various rumors on the matter, Google and other competition have also claimed interest in the Oslo-based company. This led to a 26 percent jump in Opera's shares today, making the company worth a bit over $1 billion. The norwegian bank DNB has valuated Opera at $1.35 billion.

Facebook is building something secretly from its employees and only the high-level management is familiar with the project. The secret project is about software development for mobile or May be a Whole Mobile OS that Also may be depended on a Web OS or like it as Facebook platform is a Web hPHP Based.The secret project is most probably a new mobile OS based completely on Facebook.

So if facebook is going to make a Mobile OS it needs a Mobile phone to do this. Of course Facebook will make a deal with a Big Mobile phones Manufacture to Make the Hardware of the phone and it might be Cheap so that it will target a Huge range of users. This phone should integrate all Facebook stuff the same way Google does with its accounts. May be even better. All this info is Not Confirmed yet but Facebook Fans and Farmville Fans will be Pleases.


Microsoft has just announced about the long-waited Update for the Windows phone 7.5 Facebook App, Windows phone users was waiting for this App update for long time to get the use of the facebook app on their windows phone handsets, and it was worth the wait!


Facebook Updated its WP7 App to v2.3 to fit the New Mango features with better News feed, Improved performance and speed to get your FB data, New Panorama mood, New Profile Views matches the Facebook timeline features.

You probably Updated your Facebook App today on your Android Smartphone, Wondering What's New with the Update ? (If you didn't Update yet head to Google play app on your smartphone). The New Update to Facebook brings the front-facing Camera support to be able to take self-photos using it, as it wasn't supported to switch to it before using the FB camera App.

The New Update will bring Facebook App to Version 1.9.7 with New Messaging features and Huge security enhancements to be safe while browsing facebook App on any public Network.

Facebook for Android 1.9.7 Full Change-log:

• A front-facing camera makes it easier to take photos
• New messaging features let you switch between conversations, include friends of friends, share bigger photos, and see who's available
• Various bug fixes
• Made a security improvement
• Faster app login and navigation


Facebook for Android shows the timeline for personal profiles since the launch of facebook timeline last year, but for the pages the timeline view wasn't fully supported as it didn't show any of page's covers photo.


Finally, The latest Update brings the full timeline view for pages showing the pinned posts, cover photo and Info of every page just like the desktop version. The photo above shows Our Facebook Page in Facebook for Android.



The iOS version of Facebook was recently rewritten, which drastically improved its reliability and performance. However, the Android version of the app is a pain for all android users, the performance and lag of the App makes the mobile website faster than the App itself.



While users are still waiting for this long-anticipated update, The Facebook Android App got a smaller update bringing it to version 1.9.11. This "maintenance" update should improve the speed when tagging photos and organizing albums. In addition, it seems that some users who have been using "certain languages" were at times unable to upload photos using the app but this bug is now fixed.



Waiting for the Facebook 2.0 App, Hopefully by the end of the year.



At Facebook core is the social graph, people and the connections they have to everything they care about. Historically, Facebook has managed this graph and has expanded it over time as it launch new products (photos, places, etc.). Now Facebook Intoduce the Facebook Developers Open Graph BETA docs and tools for developers to test along with a prelease of the facebook new timeline.



The Open Graph allows apps to model user activities based on actions and objects. A running app may define the ability to "run" (action) a "route" (object). A reading app may define the ability to "read" (action) a "book" (object). A recipe app may define the ability to "cook" (action) to a "recipe" (object). Actions are verbs that users perform in your app. Objects define nouns that the actions apply to. Facebook Already got some default examples that available for developers to test it and see how it works.





After a user adds your app to their Timeline, app specific actions are shared on Facebook via the Open Graph. As your app becomes an important part of how users express themselves, these actions are more prominently displayed throughout the Facebook Timeline, News Feed, and Ticker. This enables your app to become a key part of the user and their friend experience on Facebook.

Facebook New Campus

Today, Facebook's CEO, Mark Zuckerberg was in a meeting with Frank Gehry an Architecture Engineer to design a New Facebook Campus, The New Campus will need to fir for over than 3,400 New Facebook Employee. Here is what Mark said about it on his personal facebook profile :

"I'm excited to work with Frank Gehry to design our new campus. The idea is to make the perfect engineering space: one giant room that fits thousands of people, all close enough to collaborate together. It will be the largest open floor plan in the world, but it will also have plenty of private, quiet spaces as well. The roof of the building will be a park that blends into the community with a long walking trail, a field and lots of places to sit. From the outside it will appear as if you're looking at a hill in nature."

Facebook HQ

The New Facebook HQ is still in the designing phase but its said that it will be the World's largest open floor plan, It will take 2-3 years to finish building this giant Campus, Mark also said on a comment why they choose that Frank Gehry is the One to make this project Real:

"To clarify one thing: we expect working with Frank Gehry will actually save us money. Many development projects like this waste 30% or more of the materials due to poor planning, but Gehry uses a software-based design process to plan more precisely and efficiently. His buildings have a reputation for coming in on time and on budget. So we expect this building to be incredible and not particularly expensive."




Facebook filled for IPO yesterday. We are not going to bore you with the technical information about it, as those are mostly of interest to banks and their corporate clients at this point, but the documents submitted mention a few quite interesting facts about the social network.

Obviously, the network still has not reached saturation point as its user base keeps growing. By the end of last year Facebook had 845 million users, who formed 100 billion friendships, uploaded 250 million photos per day and generated 2.7 billion daily likes.

Facebook Servers Caching Photos

I think many people understand today that the photos they put on Facebook and other social networking sites can be used against them by employers when searching for a new job. I am sure a lot of people posting pictures to Facebook have thought better of it after a few hours, days, or weeks and then went back and deleted the photo. The catch is that the photo may be deleted from your profile and as it turns out, often the photos are still the Facebook servers and accessible.


According to ArsTechnica, three years after photos were deleted from some Facebook accounts the photos are still accessible via direct links it has access to. All a person needs to be an access the photos you deleted in most cases is the direct link to the photo, and you can still see it. ArsTechnica reports that it started following this back in 2009 and that some of the links to deleted photos they found still accessible back in 2009 are still accessible today despite being deleted from the user account.

FB Mobile App

Now that Facebook has filed for an IPO, we knew it might lead to some changes for the world largest social network. Well, a new report from the Financial Times reports that we could start to see some advertising on its mobile products in the coming weeks.

FB Tablet App

The report suggests that advertising on mobile Facebook will be different than on the web, as it will primarily concentrate on promotional "featured stories" within your news feed. These should be clearly identified but you just know that people are going to freak out whenever Facebook does anything. While I don't like more ads in my life, I understand why this has to happen.

Facebook listed mobile as one of its biggest risks because it currently does not generate any significant revenue from its apps or mobile web products, VentureBeat points out. This has all been by design, as Facebook was looking for scale on the mobile side before generating money. It has done quite well on that front, as it currently has more than 425 million mobile users.

The Father

This Man is not Crazy, He is just Pissed OFF!

If you are a teenager, you better be careful what you post on Facebook. Especially, If you have a father who works in IT. But there is that one quirk about teenagers no matter what common sense says, they think they know better. That is, until they are taught a lesson they can never forget. Apparently this dad thought a bullet might teach that lesson. Better yet, nine bullets. He shot his daughter's computer after finding a disparaging message on her Facebook wall.

Laptop being shoot

And he documented it all on video so he could post it on YouTube for all to see. And so far it has received nearly 2.9 million views. In the video, the angry dad reveals he saw a hidden wall post on her daughter Facebook account while he was upgrading her computer.

Facebook is rolling out a new system to verify user accounts that will allow some users to use nicknames. Since Facebook at its core is looking for your personal information, it has always wanted you to use your real name unless you are a big star such as Lady Gaga. Facebook is positioning this account verification as a way to ensure that people do not subscribe to an imposter who might be trying to impersonate someone on Facebook.

Facebook WARNING!

By verifying an account, the users will get more prominent placement in the Facebook "People to Subscribe to" suggestions. Techcrunch reports that starting today people with many subscribers will start being notified of the option to verify their account by uploading their government supplied ID. The person real name, if they go by a pseudonym, will still be listed on the about page. Apparently, each verified account will be processed manualy.

Amid all the IPO hysteria that has recently surrounded Facebook, the social network also made news by announcing it plans to introduce mobile advertising for users who connect to the site through a smartphone app. In just its first year, where the ads will only be active in six countries, that initiative could bring in more than a billion more dollars to the soon-to-be public company bottom line.

Specifically, moblie research group MobileSquared predicts that within the first 12 months after Facebook mobile ads go live, there will be a $1.2 billion revenue stream that did not exist before. That may sound impressive, but when you factor in the number of users who are active in the mobile Facebook world, that is only around $6.50 per user per year.

Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg has let slip that his company plans to buy popular photo-sharing app Instagram. Facebook will pick up the social app, which got its own long-awaited Android version, for a cool $1 billion in cash and shares. Zuck confirmed the news on his personal blog, adding that the deal will not affect Instagram integration with competing social networks:

"We think the fact that Instagram is connected to other services beyond Facebook is an important part of the experience. We plan on keeping features like the ability to post to other social networks, the ability to not share your Instagrams on Facebook if you want, and the ability to have followers and follow people separately from your friends on Facebook."

Facebook to Acquire Instagram

MENLO PARK, CALIF.-April 9, 2012-Facebook announced today that it has reached an agreement to acquire Instagram, a fun, popular photo-sharing app for mobile devices.

The total consideration for San Francisco-based Instagram is approximately $1 billion in a combination of cash and shares of Facebook. The transaction, which is subject to customary closing conditions, is expected to close later this quarter.

Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Facebook, posted about the transaction on his Timeline:

I'm excited to share the news that we've agreed to acquire Instagram and that their talented team will be joining Facebook.

For years, we've focused on building the best experience for sharing photos with your friends and family. Now, we'll be able to work even more closely with the Instagram team to also offer the best experiences for sharing beautiful mobile photos with people based on your interests.

We believe these are different experiences that complement each other. But in order to do this well, we need to be mindful about keeping and building on Instagram's strengths and features rather than just trying to integrate everything into Facebook.

That's why we're committed to building and growing Instagram independently. Millions of people around the world love the Instagram app and the brand associated with it, and our goal is to help spread this app and brand to even more people.

We think the fact that Instagram is connected to other services beyond Facebook is an important part of the experience. We plan on keeping features like the ability to post to other social networks, the ability to not share your Instagrams on Facebook if you want, and the ability to have followers and follow people separately from your friends on Facebook.

These and many other features are important parts of the Instagram experience and we understand that. We will try to learn from Instagram's experience to build similar features into our other products. At the same time, we will try to help Instagram continue to grow by using Facebook's strong engineering team and infrastructure.

This is an important milestone for Facebook because it's the first time we've ever acquired a product and company with so many users. We don't plan on doing many more of these, if any at all. But providing the best photo sharing experience is one reason why so many people love Facebook and we knew it would be worth bringing these two companies together.

We're looking forward to working with the Instagram team and to all of the great new experiences we're going to be able to build together.

Instagram (a facebook Company) has grown tremendously after it arrived on Android, and now the photo manipulation and sharing service can brag about having 80 million active users who have shared around 4 billion photographs.

With Android devices covering virtually all price tiers in a huge number of countries, Instagram has also grown along to be a truly global brand. If you still haven't tried it out, Instagram is a neat little program that gives you a set of filters to make your photos look more vintage and cooler.




Recently, Facebook announced it's acquiring the app and as soon as the deal closes we expect the service to get tighter Facebook integration, and - who knows if those rumors about a Facebook phone turn out to be true, maybe an even wider following along.

You may recall that Facebook purchased Instagram App for $1 Billion. However, Facebook did promise to keep Instagram as a separate entity and not fold it into Facebook proper, but that doesn't mean that there won't be some data sharing as time goes on. And, that time is coming pretty soon as Instagram has shown off its new privacy policy with does include sharing data with Facebook.

The change in the Instagram privacy policy comes after Facebook had made similar changes to allow for data-sharing between itself and Instagram. With the changes to Instagram's policy, Instagram will be able to "share user content and your information," including cookies, location data, device identifiers, and other information with Facebook-owned companies.


However, Instagram says on its Offiical blog that "nothing has changed about your photos' ownership or who can see them," which is great to hear given that Facebook's copyright claims on photos is overly broad.
