Two weeks after Foursquare announced that they are rebranding from the ground up, they have finally unveiled version 8.0, and simply checking-in is definitely a thing of the past as far as the new app is concerned. The new Foursquare is all about giving users personalised and localized recommendations, based on what kind of things you like, where you’ve been in the past and what you should be checking out in your hood.
Google might soon be fiddling with its photo gallery, but this time in ways that go beyond just a corner to stow and share pictures on Google+. According to insider sources, the search giant is planning to yank its Photos service out of Google+ and offer it as a separate and independent service for hosting and sharing everything from cats to selfies.
If you've already had too much of the selfie generation, wait until Automattic gets its experimental social network out of the lab. The company, more popular for creations such as the WordPress blogging platform and the Gravatar avatar service, has very silently launched a new social network called Seflies that is focused on one thing and one thing alone: sharing selfies.
Foursquare started out as one of the earliest location-sharing apps, where you can let others know where you’ve been and keep track of where your friends are. But over the past few months, they’re trying to evolve into more than just that, and they have just announced their upcoming rebranding, including a new logo and a much more personalised service where you can discover new places to visit, wherever you are.
Messaging app LINE has now also joined the ephemeral message bandwagon as it released the “hidden chat” function in its latest update. The feature now lets users send and receive messages that will be displayed in a hidden chat, for a set limited amount of time only and once the messages have been viewed, it will be deleted not just from the app but as well as from the LINE server.
Imagine you’re meeting with some of your friends but all of you are not familiar with the place you’re going to.

What if you have just one app where you can do both and you keep your privacy as well? Jink is the newest location sharing app for Android that can let other people know where you are exactly but at the same time maintain your privacy.
It seems that Adobe hasn't totally forgotten about Android yet. It has just released a new app called Revel that gives users a semi-private place to share their photos with family and friends without having to worry about unwanted eyes taking a peek as well.
