Facebook’s Privacy Basics shows users how to be in charge

We've all been there (well, at least those who have Facebook accounts). You complain about how Facebook's privacy settings are sorely lacking and how it's so hard to post such and such with everybody seeing it and how (insert other complaints here), etc etc, only for someone to point out to you that actually, you can control who sees your posts and all you have to do is (insert steps here), etc etc. It's just that a lot of people are too lazy to read the how to's or there's just so much fine print to go through.

Have Messengers’ 500M users forgiven Facebook yet?

As Facebook announced that their "independent" Messenger app has already reached half a billion users, chances are some of those are still angry that they were "forced" to migrate to a separate app to keep using the service.

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.

Facebook app testing opening links in built-in browser

Most people who are on Facebook have a love-hate relationship with the hugely popular social network, particularly when it comes to rolling out new features. What the social media giant does is test out new features on a random subset of users before slowly rolling it out to the public. So if you’re one of the “lucky” ones to run into this new functionality on the Android app, you’ll notice that opening links within now leads you to a built-in web browser rather than your smartphone’s default browser.
