Facebook works on connections, and getting recommendations for businesses, like restaurants, seems like something the social network should have been doing for ages.
It looks like Snapchat’s refusal to Facebook’s $3 billion acquisition offer has not gone down well with the latter. After launching Instagram Stories, an exact copy of Snapchat Story, Facebook is now testing “Messenger Day” feature for its own Messenger app.
Facebook has been working on entering the enterprise market, as far as social is concerned, for quite some time, thanks to its in-beta “Facebook at Work” software.
If you’re a user of Facebook, there’s more than likely a high probability that you’ve come across the “Events” section, which tallies a variety of content, from concerts, to parties, to whatever else might be happening on a specific date.
Facebook today announced the launch of Marketplace, a convenient place where Facebook members can easily sell and buy items with people in their locality. Facebook says that more than 450 million people were visiting buy/sell groups on its site every month, and with this move, the company is making the process simpler for them.
Facebook has been ordered to stop collecting data from WhatsApp users in Germany. The city of Hamburg’s data protection commissioner said the social network must explicitly ask users for permission, which it has not been doing.
Facebook Messenger has made it possible for users to make calls over the Internet, to other Messenger users, for quite some time.
Facebook wants its users to use video, a lot, so it’s no surprise that it’s adding another feature into its Messenger platform to entice people to do just that.
More often than not, after scrolling through plenty of status updates with text, pictures, and memes, you’ve probably come across a post on Facebook that features video, too. Both from brands you follow and friends and family.
When you have a service like Facebook Messenger, tallying the number of users is pretty important, if for no other reason as a means of comparison to the plethora of other messaging apps out there in the wild.
