Facebook buys WhatsApp for $19B

Facebook buys WhatsApp for $19B

Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook just posted the following message:

'I’m excited to announce that we’ve agreed to acquire WhatsApp and that their entire team will be joining us at Facebook.

Our mission is to make the world more open and connected. We do this by building services that help people share any type of content with any group of people they want. WhatsApp will help us do this by continuing to develop a service that people around the world love to use every day.

WhatsApp is a simple, fast and reliable mobile messaging service that is used by over 450 million people on every major mobile platform. More than 1 million people sign up for WhatsApp every day and it is on its way to connecting one billion people. More and more people rely on WhatsApp to communicate with all of their contacts every day.

WhatsApp will continue to operate independently within Facebook. The product roadmap will remain unchanged and the team is going to stay in Mountain View. Over the next few years, we're going to work hard to help WhatsApp grow and connect the whole world. We also expect that WhatsApp will add to our efforts forInternet.org, our partnership to make basic internet services affordable for everyone. 

WhatsApp will complement our existing chat and messaging services to provide new tools for our community. Facebook Messenger is widely used for chatting with your Facebook friends, and WhatsApp for communicating with all of your contacts and small groups of people. Since WhatsApp and Messenger serve such different and important uses, we will continue investing in both and making them each great products for everyone.

WhatsApp had every option in the world, so I’m thrilled that they chose to work with us. I’m looking forward to what Facebook and WhatsApp can do together, and to developing great new mobile services that give people even more options for connecting.

I've also known Jan for a long time, and I know that we both share the vision of making the world more open and connected. I'm particularly happy that Jan has agreed to join the Facebook board and partner with me to shape Facebook's future as well as WhatsApp's.

Jan and the WhatsApp team have done some amazing work to connect almost half a billion people. I can’t wait for them to join Facebook and help us connect the rest of the world.'

LinkedIn Introduces The “How You’re Connected” Feature

LinkedIn has now added a new feature to the site called: “How You’re Connected”. The objective behind the introduction of this new feature (as the name suggests) is to aid the LinkedIn members in introducing each other. The company has rolled out this latest update to the English member of LinkedIn already. In due course of time, this feature will provide better insights to users.

Thanks to this new feature, users on visiting a LinkedIn profile will not only be able to see their network but will also see members from your network that have connections in the network of the profile you view. The company is hoping that users will benefit from this feature by making better connections on the professional front. 

Here is an example provided by LinkedIn:

So let’s say you’re an advertising professional looking for an introduction to the CMO of a company you’d love to do business with. You might find one mutual connection attended school with her before she kick started her career but another worked with her recently on a very high-profile campaign. Chances are, the connection that worked with her recently is more likely to have a stronger, more relevant connection and therefore be the best source for an introduction.

Of course, this feature might not work best at every instance but at least it will help users to understand networks and make connections in a more simple and streamlined manner. It also helps in erasing confusion when users are looking to make new connections. Overall, this is great new feature introduced by LinkedIn that will benefit users in long run.

New Tool That Detects Trends Even Before They Trend On Twitter

US based company Dataminr has launched a new tool for Twitter that predicts trends before they actually begin trending on Twitter. This new tool has been built for journalists that want to curate news as soon as possible ahead of competition. The aim of this tool is help journalists get hold of new stories before they are extensively reported. 

This toll has been built by Twitter in partnership with media giant CNN. The teams at CNN have been using this tool for almost half a year now and it has greatly helped them to source content for stories. 

This tool helps in predicting trends based on an algorithm that evaluates Twitter feeds based on clustered reports and geo-location. This tool also distinguishes news by means of the source that is whether the news has originated from a credible source or a citizen journalist. 

 

This tool is of great help to journalists to get to a new during its early stage of development rather than before it blows up and is reported by everybody.  As soon as the tool spots a trend, it alerts the reporters and editors. It also gathers information like videos and pictures about a potential event. 

As per CNN, this Dataminr For News has been of immense help to gather news and spot trends over the last six months. It has greatly helped the editors to direct their reporters to follow up the best stories and gather information before everyone else.

LinkedIn Files Lawsuit Against Unidentified Hackers

After being subject to an attack from hackers, in which they created several fake accounts to “scrape” data of profile. As per the documents in the public domain, this attack was a result of several bots (automated) via computers that were leased from Amazon.

The legal counsel of LinkedIn have stated it cost the company $5,000 in the process of tackling the hackers.  The lawsuit was filed at the Northern District of California court.

LinkedIn’s statement to the court has stated the following:

"Since May 2013, unknown persons and/or entities employing various automated software programs (often referred to as "bots") have registered thousands of fake LinkedIn member accounts and have extracted and copied data from many member profile pages. This practice, known as data 'scraping,' is explicitly barred by LinkedIn's User Agreement, which prohibits access to LinkedIn through scraping, spidering, crawling or other technology or software used to access data without the express written consent of LinkedIn or its Members."

LinkedIn’s spokesperson Richard George said:

“We’re a members-first organization and we feel we have a responsibility to protect the control that our members have over the information they put on LinkedIn.”

There is no evidence that can specifically identify the hackers but the company claims the attack was carried out via Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud. The motive of the hackers is not understood as yet but LinkedIn claims that damage that has caused the company is not reparable.

Is It Finally Time For Twitter To Deal With Abusive Trolls?

It is a well-known fact that Twitter has given birth to “keyboard warriors” off late. These are users that abuse celebrities or other Twitter users. Sometimes this borders on criminality, as the abuse can be racial in nature. In other cases people have been found threatening other users with death and violence. Twitter and social media is a place where opinion makers are now using to tap into an audience. Trolls are using it to launch attacks on people with different opinions to theirs. 

Hence the question keeps arising whether Twitter should devise a policy where abuses, racist comments and death threats should be a strict non-negotiable when it comes to their policy. It is no longer social networking when a nameless and faceless stranger for making a comment or opinion contrary to theirs abuses you on a public platform.

The latest high-profile case of abuse and racism on Twitter emerged on January 21 when a user began racial abusing ex-footballer Stan Collymore. This then snowballed into a huge controversy when CNN’s chat show host, Piers Morgan leapt to the defense of Collymore. Piers Morgan was abused by the same user and was sent a death threat via a tweet.

Piers Morgan then went after the user whose name was  @philliplad by asking his 3.9 million users if they knew him or had any information about him. Morgan apparently got some information about the user. He then tweeted to Facebook co-founder Jack Dorsey about the same incident. 

 

Piers Morgan then went on to report the offender/s to the Metropolitan Police of the UK, as he was a UK twitter user. The offender however continued to taunt Morgan despite knowing well what he said was a criminal offense. 

The entire saga was played out on Twitter. It happened as stated below:

 

Timeline

Jan 21

@PhilippLad @piersmorgan @StanCollymore He's a cotton field n****r, you're a fat c***. both deserve a horrible and painful death

@piersmorgan Jan 21

Who is @PhilippLad ? Let's see how big, tough and racist he's feeling by the time I've finished with him.

Piers Morgan ‏@piersmorgan Jan 21

The law is crystal clear...racially abusing someone & making death threats are both crimes in the UK. As @PhilippLad will soon discover.

Hi @Twitter - this person > @PhilippLad  is making death threats & racially abusing people on his timeline. I suggest you do something.

Hi @metpoliceuk - this person > @PhilippLad is making death threats & racially abusing people on his timeline. I suggest you do something.

Piers Morgan ‏@piersmorgan Jan 21

Anyone who knows @PhilippLad please contact me. I'm going to wipe the ugly, vile smirk off his racist little face.

Piers Morgan ‏@piersmorgan Jan 21

Hi @TwitterUK - this person > @PhilippLad  is making death threats & racially abusing people on his timeline. I suggest you do something.

Piers Morgan ‏@piersmorgan Jan 21

Hi @jack - this person > @PhilippLad is making death threats & racially abusing people on his timeline. Over to you.

@PhilippLad he'll get me suspended, but he's not going to 'catch me' lmao

@PhilippLad You promised to catch me @piersmorgan, How stupid of you lmao

@WMPolice We can confirm @StaffsPolice are investigating alleged abusive tweets to @StanCollymore.

CONFIRMED: Police investigating vile racist death threats to @StanCollymore

Piers Morgan ‏@piersmorgan Jan 21

I'll now leave @StaffsPolice to do their job. Racist taunts & death threats both criminal offenses. The culprits will be dealt with.

 

Twitter then suspended the accounts of the offenders and the Straffordshire Police is now investigating the case of racism and abuse. Hence this raises the broader question of whether there must be some sort of verification or filter for Twitter users. The current system is giving rise to a lot of negativity and lowering down the public discourse to a whole new low.

Facebook May Be Doomed By 2017

Facebook May Be Doomed By 2017 

Latest report emerging out have suggested that social media giant Facebook may lose up to 80% of its users in the year 2017. This surely is bad news for the company especially after the emergence of new sites like Snapchat. 

Scholars at Princeton University carried out this latest research that projected the 80% decline in the Facebook user base. The research has made use of the Google Trends, which indicate the most searched topics and have concluded a steep decline in the interest shown by users. 

 

"Facebook has already reached the peak of its popularity and has entered a decline phase. The future suggests that Facebook will undergo a rapid decline in the coming years, losing 80 percent of its peak user base between 2015 and 2017. Eventually, users begin to leave and recovery spreads infectiously as users begin to lose interest in the social network "

 

As of today, Facebook is valued at $139 billion and is accessed by more than a billion users across the globe. The search trends from the research as shown a nice analogy with what happened in the case of MySpace. It peaked in 2008 before it crashed eventually. Even Facebook now has peaked in December 2012 and is expected to decline by 2017.

As per the research report, most people that create accounts on social media sites lose interest after a few years. This report has placed together trends shown by other prominent sites that peaked and crashed eventually. 

Professor Daniel Miller from University College of London has predicted that Facebook’s eventual replacement will come in the form of Twitter and Snapchat.
