Twitter’s Video Sharing App Vine Changes Content Rules

Social media giant Twitter has announced the banning of all sexually explicit content from being published on video sharing app Vine. These new rules banning explicit content have been brought immediately into effect. Users can now report such content from the Vine app.
 
Vine was launched on Twitter more than a year ago. The video-sharing app came under huge criticism as a pornographic clip made in into their “Editor’s Pick”. This clip was then removed and the management of Twitter sent out an apology for this error.
 
This incident also compelled Twitter to increase the minimum age of users of Vine from 12 to 17 in the AppStore of Apple. As of now, the Vine app in the AppStore comes with a disclaimer warning users of "frequent/intense sexual content or nudity".
 
 
Here is the full blog post from Vine notifying the new rules:
 
We introduced Vine to make it easier for people to find, watch, create and share videos right from their mobile phones. As we’ve watched the community and your creativity grow and evolve, we’ve found that there are a very small percentage of videos that are not a good fit for our community. So we’re making an update to our Rules and Terms of Service to prohibit explicit sexual content.
For more than 99 percent of our users, this doesn’t really change anything. For the rest: we don’t have a problem with explicit sexual content on the Internet –– we just prefer not to be the source of it.
If you’re curious to know what types of content are okay or not okay to post, you can take a look at this article in our Help Center.
If you see a video that violates our updated policy, you can report it by tapping the button with three dots below the post and selecting “Report this post”. As always, you can contact us with your thoughts and feedback on this or anything else about Vine.
 
All the users that were considered to have been using account to publish sexually explicit content were sent a notification of the new rules along with a directive to delete the content and abide by the new rules of Twitter and Vine.
 
 
 

After WhatsApp, Facebook Now Acquiring Drone Manufacturer

Social media giant Facebook is in the news again after their high profile acquisition of WhatsApp a few days back. The company is said to be in negotiations with a manufacturer of drones. Yes, drones! The company intends to boost Internet connections in remote locations in Africa by making use of drones.

Facebook is one of the players said to be backing internet.org project that intend to network to remote parts of the world that are offline. As of now, just 2.7 billion people are connected to the Internet. Other companies that are backing this project are Ericsson, MediaTek, Nokia, Opera, Qualcomm and Samsung.

Reports are now emerging that Facebook aims to acquire the manufacturer of solar powered drones that can stay in air for as long as 5 years at a go. This is a part of their plan to alter the drones to offer Internet access to users on the ground. Drones of Titan Aerospace can reach an altitude of 65,000 fee, which increases their likelihood of acting as satellites with lesser operating costs.

As per reports from TechCrunch, Facebook aims to provide Internet connectivity to places that don’t have a connection by building 11,000 of these drones. A project of this nature puts it in direct competition with Project Loon funded by Google. 30 balloons will be sent into the stratosphere to forge a network that will be programmed by using currents of winds at multiple altitudes to sustain a geostationary position in Project Loon.

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.
