Facebook adds ‘save’ feature

Tweet How many times have you been scrolling through your Facebook news feed when you see something really interesting? Okay, it doesn’t happen all that often as most people just litter your feed with “inspirational” memes and pictures of their dog licking their daughter’s face. Not exactly thought-provoking stuff. But, we all have friends that actually post some quality stuff and you don’t always have time to read/watch/listen to it at that very moment. Help is on the way! Facebook just rolled out its “Facebook Save” feature on Monday that allows you to set those important posts aside for later […]

Could you quit Facebook for 99 days?

Could you quit Facebook for 99 days?

Tweet By now, you’ve surely heard about the psychological experiments that Facebook was doing for “research” purposes and it’s certainly gotten them in hot water with a lot of folks. In response to this news, a Dutch creative agency known as Just, has launched a non-profit initiative called “99 Days of Freedom.” Participants are asked to stay off of Facebook for 99 days and see if their overall mood is better afterward. I’m not sure my job will let me try it, but I’m awfully curious. “As we discussed it internally, we noted an interesting tendency: To a person, everyone […]

Twitter walks away from SoundCloud deal

Tweet You may have heard that Twitter was looking into buying SoundCloud, the music and audio-sharing company that’s been called the YouTube of audio. Well, a source tells Re/code that the deal is dead.the deal is dead. Twitter apparently let a negotiating window expire and now the talks are off. The German-based SoundCloud back in October claimed to have a whopping 250 million users. And if Twitter were to buy it, it probably wouldn’t have come cheap. They valued the company not long ago at around $700 million. Oh well, the deal is off now so it doesn’t matter.

Twitter rolling out ‘mute’ feature

Twitter rolling out ‘mute’ feature

Tweet Usually, when someone is obnoxious on Twitter and just tweets and re-tweets way too much, we just unfollow them. It’s a quick and easy solution to reduce your irritation levels. But, now Twitter is introducing a new way for you to silence that annoying tweeter without unfollowing them. In the coming weeks, all Twitter users will be able to “mute” the folks they are tired of hearing from. “In the same way you can turn on device notifications so you never miss a tweet from your favorite users, you can now mute users you’d like to hear from less,” […]

How to Find Your First Tweet as Twitter Turns 8

Tweet Believe it or not, Twitter celebrates its 8th birthday today! While not everyone was convinced the 140-character social platform would succeed, today’s anniversary certainly proves them wrong. It has now become a place for users to share information, often in real-time, leading to a big change in how we discover breaking news. “Millions of prolific tweeters have made Twitter an exciting, fun and powerful place to connect with others,” says Gabriel Stricker, Twitter’s vice president of marketing and communications. “But each of you had to start somewhere.” Today, “tweet” and “hashtag” are part of our lexicon. Twitter has become […]

Twitter stock plummets

Twitter stock plummets

Tweet On Thursday, Twitter stock opened at $50 a share, which is down more than 23% of its lowest trading price in the last two months. Wall St. clearly isn’t feeling the tweet. The sudden drop followed Twitter’s fourth quarter earnings report, its first such report since becoming a public company. Shockingly, it had nothing to do with actual revenue, which actually surpassed Wall St. estimates. The drop was due to slow user growth and a decline in engagement. “Expectations were higher for Twitter,” says Arvind Bhatia, an analyst with Sterne Agee. “User growth and engagement are going to be […]

Don’t like your Facebook review video? You’ll be able to edit it soon

Tweet I’m sure you’re aware of the “Look Back” feature that Facebook rolled out to help celebrate the company’s 10th birthday. It’s kind of interesting if you haven’t seen it (I’m sure you have since everyone is posting their video to their news feed even though no one really cares about the Facebook history of someone they played high school basketball with years ago). While it’s a cool feature, many complained that they didn’t like their video. Well, a Facebook rep told TechCrunch that there are plans to add an edit tool – which was supposed to be included in […]

New Facebook Paper app (video)

New Facebook Paper app (video)

Tweet Facebook has just released its new Paper app today. Heard of it? It’s a new way of sharing stories and kind of sort of turning Facebook into a publisher of content. I’m still trying to wrap my head around it and even searched for it in the app store, but it didn’t come up. Apparently, you can search for topics like tech, sports, cooking, whatever, and you’ll get content hand selected from a team of editors. They’ll pull from legitimate publishers, lesser-known blogs and even user posts. Paper isn’t meant to replace the Facebook app on your iPhone, but […]

Facebook punishing pages for putting crap in my news feed

Facebook punishing pages for putting crap in my news feed

Tweet Usually when we get news from Facebook on changes to its news feed it’s something obnoxious. It tends to come across as changes just to make changes and I have to get comfortable using the new format, which can be very annoying. But, this time, it seems like Facebook is making changes I actually agree with. The first set of changes came earlier in the month regarding story bumping, which publishes posts you haven’t seen above ones that you have. Okay, sounds useful. Now, Facebook says that they will start punishing pages that post garbage, while rewarding pages that […]
