Facebook to reportedly add WhatsApp button in Android app soon

It's been a little over a year since Facebook bought messaging app WhatsApp into its stable of acquisitions, but we still haven't seen any sort of integration or even connection between the two.

Well, apparently, we're already seeing a small integration, at least for the Facebook Android app.

Facebook’s new app Riff lets you collaborate on videos with friends

First it was video sharing apps. Then it became ephemeral video sharing. Now, it looks like collaborative video creation and sharing will be the name of the social media video game.

Facebook now lets you make digital scrapbooks of your kid’s pictures

Parents, especially new ones, can always be found sharing photos of their child or children on social networks. Some even give monthly or weekly photo updates to show off how cute their progeny are, especially to relatives or loved ones that are far away and can only see the kids online.

This can be both good news and bad news, depending on what you were doing years ago.

The folks over at Facebook are not resting on their laurels despite being the largest social network in the market.

Changes in Facebook to affect FB tile in Flipboard

Facebook recently implemented massive (well, not really, but it's big) changes when it comes to what you can and can't see on your news feed and what you can or cannot post. While these new rules are mostly beneficial (you can't post or see anything with explicit sexual content, violence, self-harm, etc), some apps have apparently been affected for some reason. One of these is Flipboard, who has informed its users of what this means for your Facebook tile on the popular digital magazine app.
