New Facebook Features Exposed in Accidental Update

Roughly 45 minutes after the mistaken update, Facebook disabled the site, reverted back to its previous state and then tweeted apologetically about the downtime. But that brief span of time was enough for Facebook members and Page admins to get a sneak peek at new features in the works. Facebook admitted to pushing features before their time. "Also, some internal prototypes were exposed to people and resulted in us disabling the site briefly. It's now back to normal," read a tweet from Facebook.

So what were those prototypes exactly? What follows is a deeper look at what some Facebook users saw today. Update: We've added two new prototypes to this post based on your comments: A lightbox UI for Photos and a comment box that no longer includes the "Comment" button.

Facebook has just acquired group messaging service Beluga, we’ve learned.

Facebook Acquires Group Messaging Service Beluga In A Talent AND Technology Deal

Here’s what we know: Facebook has acquired both the product and the team, and the plan is apparently to keep the service open for now. With past acquisitions, Facebook has only acquired companies for their talent. But this time it’s apparently a bit different, as they’re interested in both the talent and the technology behind Beluga. It was barely two months ago that we first wrote about Beluga — when I called it my “group messaging white whale“. Since then I’ve been a non-stop user of the service and figured it would be one of the stand-out stars at SXSW this year. But that doesn’t change the fact that the technology behind the product did seem to be rock solid — so this was a good, fast move by Facebook.

And they had to be fast. Yes, Facebook also just acquired more Google talent. Les Crédits Facebook : avenir du e-commerce ?

Les Crédits Facebook : avenir du e-commerce ?

Début 2011, Facebook annnonce qu’à partir de juillet, les développeurs seront obligés de proposer les Facebook Credits comme moyen de paiement avec 30% de commissions sur les transactions. Mais si on n’est pas un éditeur, comment peut-on utiliser cette nouvelle monnaie… Augmenter ses fans ? Cette nouveauté fut dans un premier temps testée dans certains jeux signés Zynga avec des accords avec Facebook pour booster les joueurs en ligne. Et la communauté des joueurs en ligne ne cesse d’augmenter avec Zinga qui compte aujourd’hui plus de 230 millions de joueurs actifs mensuellement.

Facebook Busted in Clumsy Smear Attempt on Google. Transcendence, starring Johnny Depp, is the latest in a series of Hollywood films with what you might call a transhumanist flair.

Other recent movies exploring the symbiosis of man and machine and our relationship with technology include the Robocop remake and Her. What we are seeing is the mainstream finally flirting with some of the headiest ideas in the history of the world, reflecting our need to grapple with the implications of a world sustained by increasingly powerful technologies, and a redefinition of what it means to be human. I suppose the main argument goes like this: We are no longer subject to Darwinian natural selection. Exponentially powerful technologies are transforming our sphere of possibilities. What it means to be human is up for grabs. Consider the words of X Prize founder Peter Diamandis who reminds us in his TED talk that more change has occurred in the last 100 years than in the last billion.

But this is nothing new. Why Facebook's New Questions Tool Is Good for Brands & Businesses.

It also presents a major opportunity for businesses to conduct market research and crowdsource in a far more elegant way than was previously possible, according to Ben Grossman, communication strategist for marketing agency Oxford Communications. "We know from Nielsen that recommendations from friends and family and the opinions of online strangers are the top two most trusted forms of advertising," Grossman told Mashable.
