According to a blog post recently published by ZeroFOX, it had found more than 500 fake accounts throughout various social media platforms (including popular ones like Facebook, Instagram, and even YouTube) that all offer iPhone X giveaway deals, but are actually scams. Most of these spam offers are designed for one thing -- to get consumers to supply their personal data.
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.
Sure, social media platforms have allowed us to connect better with each other. But they have also become unwitting breeding grounds of hate speech and trolls. Social media brands are now trying to make their platforms more hate-free, and Twitter is no exception to this. Just recently, the company has rolled out additional updates to its settings, specifically introducing more mute options.
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.
Twitter has recently revealed that it is joining forces with Live Nation in order to start exclusively live streaming video of concert events. The social media giant is reportedly already lining up a formidable lineup of recording artists, including Train, Portugal The Man, August Alsina, and Marian Hill. This coming May 13th, Zac Brown Band is said to be scheduled to air a live musical performance.
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.
The biggest social media platform around the world has decided to make its Safety Check even more useful by adding a Community Help feature to its crisis response tool. With this new addition, whenever Facebook users get marked as safe, they are then sent to a page that will help them get assistance or give a hand to those that need help in times of natural calamities and other emergencies. Users can also search posts according to location or category like food, water, shelter, transportation, infant supplies and equipment. Back in November of last year, Facebook had previewed the Community Help functionality.
