Video is nothing new on Facebook, but it could be a dedicated feature in the future. Facebook's testing a special feed to help users see only the videos posted from friends, viral videos or those from liked pages. It's like a personalized YouTube without leaving Facebook.
Some users are seeing a dedicated video tab in the normal Messenger shortcut. The tab isn't available in Android, but Facebook has stated the new suggested videos feature already on iOS should hit Android soon.
It's obvious Facebook is serious about videos and competing with YouTube. They've already rolled out features such as celebrity live streaming, 360 degree VR videos and more advanced creator tools. The new push for videos is just Facebook's way to make it your one stop destination while online. Of course, spending more time on the site equals more revenue from ads for them.

Facebook Like button is an important part of the social networking nowadays, the social giant is looking on making another rival button that has the exact opposite function of the like button which will be called "Dislike".
Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO, said that the feature will be coming soon during a town hall meeting on Tuesday at the company's California headquarters. However, he also said it wouldn't be a way for users to "downvote" posts and instead would let users express other emotions besides the inferred positivity of the Like button.
It's not easy to design a button like this, it is a tricky proposition and need to be carefully designed and implemented. In other hands, it will significantly increase the user's interactions with a post. Currently, if the user doesn't like a post he can ignore it by not clicking "LIKE", but after implementing this feature the same user can hit "dislike" for the same content, which means more users interactions even if it is negative.
"People have asked about the 'dislike' button for many years, and probably hundreds of people have asked about this, and today is a special day because today is the day that I actually get to say we are working on it, and are very close to shipping a test of it," - Zuckerberg said, according to a CNBC report.
The most popular social network website, Facebook, has changed its Logo... A minor change to the logo's font, However, you will still see the iconic "F" logo that one doesn't change but wherever else the full name is used, you will eventually see a new wordmark designed in collaboration by Facebook's in-house design team and Eric Olson of Process Type Foundry.
Facebook's New logo used a font which is more simple, here's what the facebook team said about this new logo:
When Facebook's logo was first created in 2005, the company was just getting started and we wanted the logo to feel grown up and to be taken seriously. Now that we are established, we set out to modernize the logo to make it feel more friendly and approachable. While we explored many directions, ultimately we decided that we only needed an update, and not a full redesign. We worked with Eric Olson - whose typeface Klavika was used in the original logo - and developed a custom typeface to reflect where we are now and where we are headed.

On Early December, The Pirate Bay was raided at the Nacka station, a nuclear-proof data center built into a mountain complex near Stockholm, which caused the website to go down.
Today (1st,Feb 2015) The Pirate Bay is BACK ONLINE and its main domain is now accessible via www.thepiratebay.se and the website has started serving torrents to the masses again, much to the delight of millions of users. The Pirate Bay's homepage currently features a Phoenix.
Currently, The Pirate Bay doesn't have any ads at the moment but the look and feel of the site is familiar, and the user accounts are working properly too. The "Contact Us," "RSS" and "Register" links are not operational yet and redirects to a 404 Error page.
Based on the recent torrents it appears that data loss is minimal. The latest upload was on December,9th last year, the same day TPB's servers were raided.
If you are a seasoned videographer or someone who regularly uploads gaming videos on YouTube, you'd have notice that the framerate was capped at 30fps, which meant regardless of the framerate of the original video file, once uploaded the video will only playback at 30fps max on YouTube.
That changes today. YouTube has finally introduced the option of displaying higher framerates up to 60fps, so whether it is a video shot in 48fps or a gameplay video at 60fps, they will playback in all their high framerate glory on YouTube.
The catch here for now is that the high framerate is only available at HD resolutions and not available on mobile devices.
