Rumors of a search engine by the social network Mark Zuckerberg who runs ended: since the company announced Graph Search , a powerful system that lets you search inside Facebook.
use photos, interests and other things of your friends to get the results, thus differs from other search engines like Google give you links.
huge number of users who have Facebook-about a billion-will help the new search engine has a chance to have some great information to his credit. However, do not imagine a Google or Yahoo search but with the blue and white simbilito Facebook, is very different.
Graph Search uses data from users to get results. For example, if queries that people live in my city, the search locates which of your friends live in your area and gives you the answer. The same situation is repeated tastes, interests and so on.
Mark Zuckerberg said about the search: “This is not web search. Graph Search is designed to show the response and links to answers “and then noted that” Web Graph Search Seach and very different “and that” the results are ranked according to the closest people, the rest are mutual friends and other data found by the Facebook system. “
For now, the system is under test mode and a little will be enabling in different countries. Its insertion around the globe will be gradual and will require several weeks.
If you’re interested in seeing as Graph Search works can enter the following link to see a test search that offers Facebook for that slowly internalizing go on what and how the new search engine.
not settle for optimizing their own mobile apps and go to load more. Several reports claim that the social network created by Mark Zuckerberg launched a new customer to compete with Snapchat , the popular iOS and Android service that lets you send photos from mobile devices.
Details about the apparent platform are scarce, but would be in the testing phase. On the possible release date there is no confirmation, as mentioned the arrival of the product for “coming weeks”. For now we have to wait to see what happens.
Snapchat gained fame in recent months thanks to some specific functions. The highlight of the service is not sending images themselves, but the possibility of “self-destroy” after a certain period of time. Recipients can only see the pictures for 10 seconds , and which are then removed from the phone and platform.
competitor created by Facebook present similar options, although it is unknown how they would handle images . Recall that the social network has been accused of violating privacy by not properly remove user photos hosted on their servers.
For now the reporting is quite limited, so we’ll have to wait a few weeks to confirm or deny the release. When any news will keep you informed.

had to wait a few months but it’s finally here. Facebook launched its native app for Android , very similar to the one introduced long ago for iOS. The development team moved away completely from HTML5 and native code chose to benefit the user experience.
Droidfooding appears that both gave positive results. Some of the most important parts of the application were created from scratch to make it faster and smoother. A note on the Facebook Engineering blog delves into the technical details of the new client version. Then I leave a fragment translated:
rewrote several key functions of Facebook to Android native code, including the News Feed and Biography, to create a much faster experience when you open the app and to see photos and interact with friends. Now you can comment on or make “Like” on a story without losing time, and uploading photos is optimized to make it faster. We also created a new banner that is automatically updated and displayed when there are new stories, no matter where in the feed are.
Facebook engineers had to work hard to memory consumption of more efficient app , as in previous versions affected “smoothness” of the interface. The official client is still not perfect, but is much closer to what they want users Android smartphones or tablets.
According to the developers, the new version of the application is the foundation for a brighter future of the social network in the mobile arena. Installing or upgrading to the native app is directly from Google Play Store, so do not hesitate to try it.
How about the new Facebook for Android? We hope your opinion in the comments.
Facebook introduced its new native app for iOS, with drastic improvements over previously offered the client. Since then speculated launching an Android equivalent and the apparent order of Mark Zuckerberg for their employees to use smartphones with that OS.
During the weekend came from images that confirmed the rumors reported in recent months. Facebook offices in Menlo Park were hung with posters inviting workers to leave their iPhones and adopt Android as the primary operating system. The program was named “Droidfooding” .
social network intention is that all employees use Facebook for Android and help improve the quality of the app . This feature “Shake Rage”, a new tool for reporting bugs. According to TechCrunch the utility is activated by shaking the phone, recording the state of the application and sending it to the engineers responsible for failures end.
But whence comes this renewed appreciation of Facebook to Android? Just see the posters to understand. Considering IDC projections, by 2016 the distribution of smartphones with Google’s OS double the iPhone . The social network is not to stagnate with a mediocre app platform mobile software used in the world.
now the “Droidfooding” bet on the willingness of employees to switch to Android. Must see if in the months keeps this tone or becomes more rigorous.

When you spend hours on Facebook is logical subscribe to many pages. The problem is that these pages publications flood the homepage and mingle with friends updates. Luckily the social network Mark Zuckerberg is introducing a feed parallel dedicated to Pages .
This new feature is available in the menu on the left, in the Pages section. To access the most important innovations simply click on “News Pages”
. Should be clear that this option does not alter the operation of the home page, which remains at Pages publications alongside those of our friends. Feed The intent of this is to give more relevance dedicated generated content through the pages. The initiative also responds to complaints from several companies who criticized the lack of promotion your featured content
. While it is a good idea, has several points that can play against. On the one hand, access to the “News Pages” is almost buried in the left margin menu. This bothers the entrance section and does not capture the immediate attention of netizens. Moreover, publications in the new feed still not apparent pattern
and appear out of order. Worst of all is that it includes filtering parameters (dates, number of Likes, etc.). The idea of a dedicated feed to Pages is very good, but still consuming Polished

Instagram always highlighted by the focus on mobile platforms, but significantly amended its online version. The service submitted new web profiles to navigate through the pages by users from any browser. It is a radical change compared to the strategy followed by the company so far, although the emphasis remains on the iOS and Android applications.
Gradually Facebook is printing on Instagram style as photo service profiles in design clearly based social network Mark Zuckerberg
. On the page you can see a cover with images taken by users and a feed with all photos uploaded to the account. Move your mouse over the pictures shown interacting with each ( comments and amount of “likes”). To view them in larger size just have to click on them and wait for them to load into the traditional viewfinder. Web profiles also include a button to track the activity of each account and statistics as number of photos, followers, etc.. As Instagram keeps the focus on Android phones, the profiles are “isolated.” This means that to access them you need to know the user name of each account and enter it in the URL in the following format: Instagram.com / username
. A small search engine would be a useful tool in the web version, but for now there are no plans to add it. So far few users who could access the new web profiles, but from general access promised Instagram from next week.

If you get angry when Facebook changes its design, pay attention. The social network is working on a new look for profiles in Timeline (Biography). The main difference is that all wall postings (status updates, photos, videos, etc..) Are arranged in a single column , instead of the double panel we see today.
The activities listed in a column widened for easy navigation, while the right boxes remain friends, photos, locations, applications, etc. The design changes were confirmed by a spokesperson for the social network, who said that so far only a small percentage of users have access to them.
Another point to note is that it eliminates dividing line profile half
, although users can still navigate important events Biography from the upper right corner of the page. These modifications are simple but they make the profile easier and accessible. A lot of users were against adopting mandatory Timeline format. Much of netizens felt that the profile was unnecessarily overloaded. Hopefully, the changes have the potential Biography to return part of the simplicity that used to have social network. For now the new Timeline design is at an early stage of testing
and unknown details. Do you think the design change in the profile of Facebook is the right decision ? They can comment on reviews. Track | Mashable. Image | Inside Facebook.
