Facebook dropping email service

Facebook dropping email service

Tweet When was the last time you checked your Facebook email? Never? I don’t even think I could find mine if I had to.

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)

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 […]

Neither do I. website designed Yes, you can now have hashtags on Facebook, but does it really matter? A new report from Edgerankchecker.com says that it doesn’t.

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 […]

Facebook increases lobbying budget…hooray?

Tweet As we see more online legislation being presented to Congress such as CISPA, PIPA and PIPA, internet giants are going to want more of a say on these matters. And how do you influence policy? With money of course! And Facebook now clearly wants to be heard in Washington, D.C., as they have increased their lobbying budget some 75% over the fourth quarter of 2012.
