Facebook introduces ‘Save on Facebook’ feature

We’ve all been there once before – maybe you’re killing time at a lounge before a meeting and took a quick glance at Facebook over your handheld device. Then you see an interesting link – a video, an article, a BuzzFeed list – but you really don’t have the time to explore it just now. What do you do? Either you let it go right now and hope you remember it later, or consign it to oblivion.

Content is king: social media apps update picture and video features

Social media is an ever-changing animal that brings about new trends, wants and needs everyday. Trends are not dictated by brands or social media entities, but by the users themselves. And while the adage that “content is king” still holds true for the most part, it is not content that can just be read: it lives, moves and breathes. In other words, pictures and videos are the content that rule the social media stratosphere as of this moment. The new updates on social media apps testify to this as well.

Facebook improved its Android app for emerging mobile markets

If you live in a country that has lightning-fast Internet connection, Facebook on mobile should have no major issues. But for those who are in developing mobile markets, like countries in Africa, then connection speed is a major deterrent towards experiencing the Facebook Android app in all its glory. This is something the Facebook developers themselves experienced in a recent trip to the region to further understand how they can bring faster connectivity to the “next five billion.”

Path comes up with new messaging app called Talk

The social networking platform Path has been relatively quiet this year, nary releasing a major update to change up its patented approach to “quick” social networking. That all changed today as the guys behind path unveiled what it has been working on during that span of “quiet time” – a standalone messaging app aptly (if not unimaginatively) called “Talk”.

Facebook Messenger now allows short videos, bigger likes

We really don’t know how far the ubiquitous Facebook is willing to carry its Messenger app, but for now the social networking platform is still churning out updates for its chat and messaging app. In this new update that appeared at the Google Play Store just today, it looks like Messenger app users will now be able to embed short videos into their chat threads, as well as get a “bigger” way to express your Facebook likes.

Facebook update: like posts offline,untag photos on app

You’re browsing through your Facebook on your phone and see a great picture or post by your friend about something important. You want/need to like it at that very moment. Too bad you’re offline. Or you had a wild party the previous night and when you wake up, you saw that your friends tagged embarrassing photos of you. Too bad you’re on mobile and you can’t untag to save your online reputation.
