galaxy s9, uhsupp social network app to launch side by side

The Galaxy S9 hasn’t even debuted yet but it’s already being criticized for not having enough new features to be worth buyers’ cash. Actually, it might have but that’s not exactly a good thing. According to Korean media, the Galaxy S9 will be Samsung’s first phone to have its second (or third) social networking app installed. Trademarked as “Uhsupp”, this app will supposedly let Galaxy S9 owners share their location with friends, comment on that, and even send messages to one another. In other words, features that other social networking apps already offer.A few centuries from now, our descendants will probably roll their eyes at how we’ve degraded our ability to spell correctly, with words like Razr, Tindr, Whatsapp, and, now, Uhsupp. Either that or they themselves would have evolved to m

what to use for social vr now that altspace is gone

You left too soon, AltSpace.In the massive spectrum of apps you can experience in VR, social VR is often the most interesting. So many games played on consoles and phones are deeply social now, with multiplayer as the default and exciting ways to share games together in person, but doing all of that in VR is a little more complicated. Not every headset lets you get up and walk around, but every VR experience in a virtual room with someone else is a unique opportunity to explore a new world with new friends.The best social VR app by far was AltSpace, but now that it is shutting down there's a need to find some compelling alternatives. Here's what we'd recommend!vTimeOne of the biggest features to AltSpace was its ubiquity, and the only other social VR app that comes close is vTime. This app

why i'm actually excited about the social features coming to apple music in ios

Apple is making big changes to the social features for Apple Music in iOS 11 and it seems pretty sweet.Apple has tried and failed multiple times to generate a usable social feature for Apple Music. First, it started with iTunes Ping, which was supposed to be a way for us to tell each other about music we're listening to by "pinging" them with suggestions. Then, Apple launched Connect for Apple Music, which allows users to connect with artists they like and fans of the same music. It acts more like a feed for subscribers to follow and like. It's ... fine. I actually turned Apple Music Connect off a few weeks after it launched. It just didn't interest me.When iOS 11 launches, Apple will have an entirely new social feature that, I think, finally hits the mark on what so many of us love about

galaxy j7 max, j7 pro come with “social camera”, samsung pay

While most eagerly await the new, and sometimes crazy, features in Samsung’s flagship smartphones, users in India are treated to just as much innovation in the company’s mid-range J series. For instance, Samsung’s S Bike safety feature and its S Power Planning mode made their debut in last year’s Galaxy J3. This year, Samsung is taking a more social spin with the “Social Camera” feature with the Galaxy J7 Max and Galaxy J7 Pro. With these two new smartphones, Samsung is also bringing its Samsung Pay service to the mid-range.As you may have guessed, the Social Camera is all about sharing. In fact, it’s about instant sharing.

plex jumps into vr on google daydream headsets

The third pillar may be the most important for adoption, and that's social. Plex VR allows for up to four users at once, who can easily watch video streaming from a Plex Media Server while seeing each other's avatars, voice chatting or using the Daydream controller to toss things around and point out things on-screen.So far, many big media VR apps haven't included a social element, but for Plex owners who already have well-stocked media libraries, it could be an easy way to share viewing across any distance. The social setup includes a friends list with online statuses similar to PlayStation or Xbox Live, although of course, you can appear offline if you'd rather sit down for a solo session.Plex VR is available for free, although for now, it's only out on Daydream VR headsets.

polygram is a new social network powered by facial recognition

Along with face-controlled emojis -- which Polygram creates via a neural network that detects viewers' facial movements and then chooses the emoji that corresponds to their reaction -- the app offers analytics like where viewers are located geographically and breakdowns by demographic. And users can animate emojis that stay animated even when posted to other social media.Some other features of the app include filters that actually make you more attractive rather than just add things to your image or change your voice, which Polygram says were designed by plastic surgeons. Additionally, for images you want to keep private, the app provides a "wipe-to-reveal" function that requires viewers to wipe away a fog-like covering in order to see the image underneath. But that blurriness rapidly reap

keybase brings seamless encrypted chats to anyone on the web

First, up a new Chrome extension adds an encrypted message button to user profiles on any of the social networks Keybase supports. (Aside from Twitter, Facebook and Reddit, the service also works with Hacker News and GitHub accounts.) If the user you're trying to message isn't already signed up for Keybase, they'll be notified via the social network they're on that they have an encrypted message waiting for them. The extension works alongside the Keybase desktop app, so your messages are encrypted end-to-end and they will be stored and unreadable until the recipient unlocks it. If you don't use Chrome, you can also use the main app to search for social media profiles and send a message from there.Speaking of the the app, Keybase Chat has also quietly made its way to Linux and Windows 10 ma

samsung's galaxy s9 comes with ar, launched with more focus on social media

Samsung Electronics Co Ltd unveiled its flagship Galaxy S9 smartphone on Sunday with an emphasis on visual applications for social media, hoping to attract tech-savvy young consumers to whether a market slowdown. With the global smartphone market set to stay flat or even shrink after meagre growth of one percent last year, vendors are focusing on features designed to encourage consumers to ditch their old phones earlier than they would have previously. Samsung launched the S9 at the mobile gadget fair in Barcelona, attracting thousands of reporters to see how the world's biggest smartphone maker could innovate in a category in which the big players are technologically closer than ever.

clips is the apple-made video sharing app that’s not a social media network

Share this storyEnlargeAppleApple clearly knows how popular video sharing is over social media, so it created a new way for iOS users to make and share videos. Today, the company announced a new app called Clips, a video-creation app that borrows many features from social media outlets' video-sharing apps but doesn't actually have a social media network attached to it. It appears Apple's goal with Clips is to provide a way to easily make fun videos by stringing together clips, music, text, and more, and then sharing them over social media.Clips seems to be built for the generation that spends most of its time sharing video or photos over the Internet. It works similarly to Snapchat, Facebook, and Instagram video features in that you press the record button to start a snippet of video and r

facebook shutters its teen-focused social app lifestage

Along with a lack of popularity, Lifestage was also mired with security concerns. Though anyone older than 21 wasn't able to add themselves to a listed high school in the area or search for any individual accounts, simply entering a younger age during the app setup would get you access to those features. Not great for an app geared towards minors.A Facebook spokesperson confirmed to us that Lifestage will no longer be supported and told us that feedback from the app has influenced similar features across the Facebook app, "Teens continue to make up an important part of the global community on Facebook, and we've learned a lot from Lifestage. We will continue to incorporate these learnings into features in the main Facebook app."

facebook tackles the question of whether social media is bad for us

In general, the research seems to suggest that if you use social media like Facebook to connect with others, there can be benefits, but if you're using it more passively and mostly just reading content, there can be some negative effects. In one study, researchers showed that students who read Facebook for 10 minutes were in a worse mood by the end of the day than students who posted or talked to friends on Facebook. In another, people who sent or received more messages, comments and Timeline posts said they experienced improvements in social support and fewer feelings of depression and loneliness.Some of the negatives and positives that come out of engaging with social media seem to be linked to envy and self-affirmation. For example, one study showed that those who looked at their own pr

using adaptive social protection to cope with crisis and build resilience - worl

Crisis is becoming a new normal in the world today. Over the past 30 years, the world has lost more than 2.5 million people and almost $4 trillion to natural disasters. In 2017 alone, adverse natural events resulted in global losses of about $330 billion, making last year the costliest ever in terms of global weather-related disasters. Climate change, demographic shifts, and other global trends may also create fragility risks. Currently, conflicts drive 80 percent of all humanitarian needs and the share of the extreme poor living in conflict-affected situations is expected to rise to more than 60 percent by 2030.In a world increasingly filled with risk, social protection systems help individuals and families cope with civil war, natural disaster, displacement, and other shocks.
