Click to enlarge Facebook intern Paul Butler visualized the map of the world using data the social networking site is rife wife: human connections . Butler plotted points of connection between people from different cities to arrive at the stunning image you see above (click to enlarge). The entire outline of the globe, including borders between countries, are defined not by geographies but human relationships. He writes: “What really struck me, though, was knowing that the lines didn’t represent coasts or rivers or political borders, but real human relationships.
Facebook accidentally went live with a handful of prototype features earlier today, including a site-wide yet short-lived overhaul of Pages . 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.
Facebook has just acquired group messaging service Beluga , we’ve learned. 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.
L’une des nouveauté de 2010 sur Facebook fut l’apparition des crédits : une monnaie virtuelle qui permet d’acheter des objets virtuels dans plus de 150 jeux sur Facebook, les plus connus Farmville, Cytiville ou Pet Society. 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.
For the past few days, a mystery has been unfolding in Silicon Valley. Somebody, it seems, hired Burson-Marsteller, a top public-relations firm, to pitch anti-Google stories to newspapers, urging them to investigate claims that Google was invading people’s privacy. Burson even offered to help an influential blogger write a Google-bashing op-ed, which it promised it could place in outlets like The Washington Post, Politico, and The Huffington Post. The plot backfired when the blogger turned down Burson’s offer and posted the emails that Burson had sent him.
Brands and businesses are looking for ways to leverage Facebook's recently unveiled Questions tool in ways that differ from what they're already doing on Q&A sites such as Quora , Yahoo Answers and LocalMind. The feature, which Facebook rolled out to all users March 24, functions as a recommendation engine. 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 . "Facebook Questions offers the perfect opportunity for brands to tap into exactly that." NOTE: Page owners can access Questions by logging into their page and then heading to the Questions page to enable the feature.
