Facebook has said that private posts on its platform from May 18th to May 22nd of last month may have been inadvertently shared to the public. According to the world’s biggest social media brand, the incident was caused by a bug in its system, which had affected about 14 million Facebook users.
The world’s foremost manufacturer of processors for mobile devices has recently revealed that it will be joining forces with the biggest social media platform in the planet, in order to help bring fast Wi-Fi connections to cities starting next year. Indeed, Qualcomm is set to integrate its QCA6438 and QCA6428 lineup of pre 802.11ay chip sets into Facebook’s Terragraph initiative.
The biggest social media platform in the world made the most of its F8 developer conference (held in the city of San Jose in California’s Silicon Valley) by introducing a fresh iteration of its AR Studio, which is basically a type of software that allows users to overlay digital graphics elements on top of essentially anything that is viewed through a smartphone’s camera.
Together with the unveiling of the new version of AR Studio, Facebook also revealed a collaboration with Sketchfab, a platform that produces ready to use 3D, augmented reality (AR), and virtual reality (VR) animation. The idea is that people can just browse through Sketchfab’s vast catalog of animations and choose the ones they want to use.
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.
