Facebook Messenger now lets you add text,doodles to photos

As people continue to either be dependent or annoyed with Facebook Messenger and its separate app from the main Facebook app, the social media giant will of course continue to add features to it to attempt to recapture the hearts of the fed-up users. The latest update to the Messenger app, which has now reached 500 million downloads (forcibly for some), now allows you to have more fun with the photos that you share with your friends.

Facebook Messenger v9 has voice reply for Android Wear

There may only be two smartwatches in the market (will turn 3 once Motorola launches its Moto 360) running on Android Wear right now, but that hasn’t stopped several apps from adding features to support the platform.

The new version of Facebook Messenger, v9, now has the capability of replying to your messages by speaking into your smartwatch.

Okay, we made that last one up obviously, but the still famous social networking app has been notorious for constantly making big changes to both its desktop and mobile apps, and not always to the liking of its millions of users. The latest big one is that it is slowly “forcing” Android users to switch to the separate Messenger app as they will disable messaging in the main app soon.

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 earnings show messaging is the way to profit

With their earnings call today, Facebook announced the typical myriad of financial statistics. A giant increase in both revenue and profit carry the day, but additional news from their various entities more than suggest their direction. When it comes to Facebook and the user, the message is clear: messaging is their new direction.
