Facebook to target advertisements based on user ID, email, mobile number

by: J. Angelo RacomaAugust 31, 2012
Facebook isn't exactly the most trusted company when it comes to user privacy. A new policy might be cause for concern for some users. Facebook is now allowing premium advertisers to target their campaigns based on mobile numbers, user IDs and email addresses.

Facebook Android app updated, but not good enough

by: J. Angelo RacomaAugust 23, 2012
Facebook has updated its Android app with event creation and support for photos and emoji in messages. But the incremental update is nothing compared to the latest iOS release, which brings in drastic improvements, leaving Android users short-changed. Sources say that even Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is disappointed with how the development of the Android app is going.

photup for Facebook: Quick and easy Facebook photo uploader

by: Dan EvansAugust 20, 2012

People who snap shots of all their important life events and manually upload their images to Facebook have a lot of time to spare. Some of them even take the time to tag each photo individually and add a caption to them. Unfortunately, not everyone has the same amount of free time. The fewer the steps it takes for me to upload to Facebook, the better. It seems that Chris Banes, developer of photup for Facebook, had the same idea in mind.

Say goodbye to wasting too much time uploading an image to Facebook. photup for Facebook allows you to easily snap a shot, enhance the photo, and upload it — all from one app. When you first launch the app, you’re instantly [...]

Current Caller ID app shows social profile, stats of caller, even before you answer

by: J. Angelo RacomaAugust 9, 2012

Mobile devices have made communication ubiquitous and persistent. With our mobile devices essentially tethered to our analog lives, we text, call, chat and email almost everywhere. Case in point: have you ever answered a call while in the shower? Perhaps if you’re anticipating an important call or message, you won’t find this so strange.

But it’s this very attitude that can sometimes cause trouble. What if you’re calling your boss at an inopportune moment? Or perhaps you’re sending a message to someone in a different time zone, and she can’t answer because it’s 3 AM. A simple Android app can help add some context to your [...]

Bloomberg: Facebook and HTC working together on a new smartphone, to debut in mid-2013

by: AdrianJuly 26, 2012

We’ve been hearing rumors about Facebook’s supposed grand mobile plans for quite some time, but until now, they had but a whiff of credibility. The last one in particular, coming from the New York Times, sounded extremely far-fetched, stating that Facebook was considering building a smartphone from scratch, both in terms of hardware and software.

A new report seems to set the record straight about Facebook’s bold, but sane plans of getting in the smartphone business. According to Bloomberg, Mark Zuckerberg’s company is currently working on a phone with deep integration of Facebook features, but they have sought help from their old partners at HTC.

FB and HTC [...]

Instagram updated for Google Nexus 7 use, Flickr support also added

by: Chris SmithJuly 16, 2012

The Nexus 7 tablet started shipping only last Friday – and it’s already selling out with certain third-party retailers – and we already have the first Android updated with support for the 7-inch device.

Unsurprisingly, it’s Instagram that was updated for the Nexus 7, a popular photo-sharing app that was recently launched on Google Play and that was recently purchased by Facebook for $1 billion. Although, truth be told, the Nexus 7 is not exactly a device to take pictures with, especially since it only comes with a front-facing camera for video chatting – and that’s a 1.2-megapixel camera, not necessarily recommended for Instagram [...]

Photo Saver: Backing up your phone photos en masse to Facebook

by: Ken EastJune 27, 2012

Facebook integration has become a must for almost everything connected to the web, intended to gain leverage from the millions of people viewing the site at every tick of the clock. Thousands of users post their latest status, videos, and most importantly, photos.

Ironically, Facebook itself or any of the Facebook applications found on the Google Play Store don’t support a feature to easily upload a lot of photos. This is precisely the niche that Photo Saver tries to serve, giving you a decent and simple photo upload and backup application on your Android device.

Photo Saver is a fresh Android app which allows you to easily upload and back up your photos [...]

Facebook Messenger app for Android gets new update

by: Mike AndriciJune 26, 2012

In the past, Facebook engineers have been often and heavily criticized over the quality of the social giant’s mobile apps. However, today I’m here to report that there might still be some hope left. The most recent update for the official Facebook Messenger app for Android brings a whole bunch of new features, as well as some improvements to the overall performance of the app.

First up, there are couple of new features designed to save you bits of precious time: in-app notifications now give you the ability to switch between conversations much more quickly than in the past, while the “swipe to delete” function allows you to delete individual messages from [...]

The Sunday Times: RIM considers selling handset division to Facebook or Amazon

by: AdrianJune 25, 2012

 

Once upon a time, there was a small Canadian-based telecommunication company that mesmerized the entire world, growing and innovating at an unprecedented pace. The Prince Charming-like RIM sold millions and millions of Blackberries each year, netting incomes that the competition couldn’t even dream of.

However, the fairytale ended as abruptly as it started for Research in Motion, a company that is now closer to bankruptcy than it is to world domination. The “Really Irrelevant Manufacturer”, as our friend Sam Cater called it in a very interesting opinion piece from back April, is now holding less than 15% of the worldwide smartphone market, being crushed [...]

New Facebook feature let’s you “Find Friends Nearby”

by: Ankit BanerjeeJune 25, 2012

Facebook and the advent of the smartphone have completely changed the way we communicate with friends.

Party invites, and in extreme cases, even regular hangouts with friends are organized through Facebook events. “Remembering” birthdays has never been easier thanks to Facebook’s reminders. We now know exactly what everyone is up to, whether they are close friends or that persistent relative who just wouldn’t get the hint when you ignored their “friend request” the first ten times. How many of us contact friends, even those living in the same city, using Whatsapp, Viber, Gtalk, etc.?

It looks like Facebook, which has been [...]
