Facebook may still be facing flak over the whole Cambridge Analytica thing, but it is business as usual for one of its brands, Messenger, which now supports sharing of 360 degree photos and videos, as well as HD video (720p quality, to be exact). But the social media giant has noted that before they can be shared, those 360 degree images and HD content have to be shot outside the Messenger mobile app.
The biggest social media platform in the face of the planet has decided to rewrite parts of its Terms of Service as well as its Data Use Policy. Basically what Facebook is doing this time around is allow for more clarification with regards to how it collects and uses people’s data. Facebook users are given a whole week in order to provide their feedback regarding the rewritten sections.
Just this week, Facebook has officially announced that it is looking to roll out Facebook Lite in additional countries, even in major mobile markets that include the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, France, and Germany, as reported by Reuters.
The world’s most widely used social media platform has decided to integrate video chats into its Messenger Lite. Indeed, it makes sense for Facebook to to continue expanding the capabilities of Messenger Lite, and a video chat functionality should be a welcome and useful addition to this service.
When Facebook first started deploying its Messenger Lite late last year, the social media giant had intended to roll it out to developing nations, especially those with below average Internet speeds. But after about a year since it debuted the mobile app in over a hundred countries, the company is now looking to launch the Android version of Messenger Lite to the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Ireland.
More than a dozen years after making its debut, and just half a decade since reaching a billion users every month, the biggest social media platform in the planet has now hit a couple of billion active users on a monthly basis. To celebrate this impressive milestone, Facebook is offering a personalized “Good Adds Up” video that its users can create and even share to other users as well.
The chat messaging platform of the world’s biggest social media network is truly on a roll. Facebook has recently revealed that its Messenger mobile app now regularly attracts 1.2 billion active users on a monthly basis. Some may remember that back in July of last year, the app had breached the 1 billionth monthly active user mark.
According to the most popular social media platform around the world, one out of five videos shared on its network are now Live videos. And as pointed out by Fidji Simo, the head of video at Facebook, the Live broadcasting watch time on a daily basis has increased four fold in the past twelve months.
The world’s biggest social media platform is launching Stories on its main app, which means that Facebook users across the globe can now share stories with their Facebook contacts and also be able to check what their friends are doing in the past 24 hours. As can be seen on the top section of the app, rounded profile pictures will be displayed, representing stories by the user’s friends. Tapping on a profile pic will have the effect of opening a friend’s story, complete with images, videos, illustrations, and even camera effects.
