 what kind of facebook user are you
add facebook and twitter login to your app with firebase and fabric

User authentication can be a powerful addition to your Android app. Once you can identify the individual people who are using your app, you can customize your app’s content, potentially delivering an experience that feels as though it was designed with a specific user in mind.But authentication isn’t just a way of delivering a more compelling, highly-personalized user experience. Depending on the kind of app you’re creating, the ability to identify your users may be required for your app to function at all – good luck developing a chat, email or social media app if you have absolutely no way of telling who anyone is!Traditionally, authentication has required the user to complete a registration form, usually creating a username and password in the process. However, with the rise of social n

70% of social network users in india are facebook users

Facebook is riding the wave of success in the APAC region. The company which just recently announced hitting the 2bn user mark, now appears to be reaching its largest share of users in India at 32.6%.According to the latest eMarketer social network user forecast, 183 million people in the country are going to use Facebook regularly during 2017. That equates to around 70% of social media users and 42.6% of Internet users.The research company also predicts user growth to continue to grow at least 20% this year. By 2021, 70% of social media users in India will access Facebook at least once a month.According to Monica Peart, Senior forecasting director at eMarketer:“Mobile devices continue to fall in price, making them increasingly accessible to the average Indian consumer.

facebook says its data can't be used for 'surveillance'

(AP Photo/Matt Rourke, File)Facebook is prohibiting developers from using the massive amount of data it collects on users for surveillance. This includes using such data to monitor activists and protesters.
The company said Monday that it is making an existing policy "explicit." Facebook says it has already taken action against developers who created or marketed tools meant to be used for surveillance. It says it wants to "be sure everyone understands the underlying policy and

european regulators push facebook to tighten user privacy rules

As the New York Times reports, however, those regulators are sort of toothless in the face of Facebook's money-printing revenue machine. The French Commission Nationale de l'Informatique et des Libertés (CNIL) imposed a mere 150,000-euro fine (about $164,000), while the Dutch haven't set a financial penalty at all, although the Times notes Facebook could still reach a settlement with them. Either way, neither agency has actually ordered Facebook to make any changes to how they handle user data.For its part, Facebook claims it is up to code with Europe's strict data protection rules and that it has recently simplified its privacy settings. On the other hand, it's not the first time Facebook's "share everything" approach rankled authorities in Europe and led to a real change for users. A "ta

facebook breaks its own record, changes incoming

This week the folks at Facebook have broken their own record for largest number of active users in a month. Per the CEO and founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg, the big blue social network now has 2-billion people in it. “We’re making progress connecting the world,” said Zuckerberg, “and now let’s bring the world closer together. It’s an honor to be on this journey with you.” To celebrate this milestone, the company is initiating some changes to Facebook.Starting today, Facebook will react when users tap the “Love” reaction button on a Friend’s Post. It’ll also react when a user wishes someone happy birthday, or when they create a new group. Facebook’s reaction to these actions will be a lovely “Thank You” message in the social network’s news feed.This may end up being the next big step in

presstv-eu fines facebook over misleading info

The European Union’s competition regulator has imposed a massive fine of 110 million euros ($122 million) on social media network Facebook over misleading information on the purchase of messaging service WhatsApp and the ensuing merger process. The European Commission said Thursday that Facebook misled the monitoring body in 2014 by pretending that it had not been able to "establish reliable automated matching" between user accounts of Facebook and WhatsApp after it bought the popular online messenger.The commission said the information was incorrect as WhatsApp in 2014 offered updates, which showed that linking user phone numbers with Facebook user IDs was possible.“However, in August 2016, WhatsApp announced updates to its terms of service and privacy policy, including the possibility of

facebook has 2 billion monthly users

Facebook was creeping up on 2 billion in March, when the social network revealed it had 1.94 billion monthly active users, up 300 million from the previous year.The site is celebrating its growth with a personalized video for every user -- it'll show up over the next few days in your News Feed or at facebook.com/goodaddsup. That link will also host stories of people contributing to their communities. Plus, whenever you leave love for someone on Facebook over the coming days, you'll see a message of thanks from the site itself.

facebook isn’t responsible for your privacy, judge rules

Facebook users can’t expect the social network to protect their privacy when they’re browsing online, a US judge has ruled, throwing out a lawsuit against the social networking behemoth. The case had seen Facebook accused of violating both US federal and Californian laws around privacy and wiretapping, in its use of tracking cookies. However the judge, in a decision made on Friday last week, disagreed. The lawsuit had been filed in a San Jose, CA court, with the plaintiffs arguing with Facebook’s use of cookies when users were logged out of the social site itself. Those tracking cookies could be used to connect individuals and their browsing history to their profiles on Facebook when the sites they visited had a “Like” button, it was pointed out. However, the judge in the case wasn’t convi

facebook fined €110 million for misleading eu over whatsapp takeover

The case, which was opened in December 2016, focused on Facebook's admission that it would be unable to reliably automate the sharing of data between a user's Facebook and WhatsApp accounts. However, in August 2016 -- nearly two years after the companies had merged -- Facebook announced an update to its terms of service, noting that it could link WhatsApp users' phone numbers to their Facebook profile. The Commission filed a Statement of Objections three months later.According to today's statement, Facebook was judged to have lied on two occasions. The first was when it submitted documentation immediately after it asked the Commission (and competing companies) to investigate the deal. The second came in its response to Statement of Objections filed in December."Today's decision sends a cle

facebook seeks to foster community with more group admin tools

Beyond that, Facebook is changing its mission statement. The social network believes it actually has responsibility now, especially given its close to 2 billion user base. "Our mission: Bring the world closer together," a slide behind Zuckerberg read. There were plenty of other platitudes, but we'll spare you. Oh, and Facebook's next big mission is getting half of its users into communities, and will be implementing more AI and other initiatives to make that happen. So, get ready for more News Feed spam.

facebook is fighting the us on user data requests

Some of the Trump inauguration arrests were denounced by press freedom organizations because they involved journalists. "These felony charges are bizarre and essentially unheard of when it comes to journalists here in America who were just doing their job," Pen America's Susan Nossel told the New York Timesin January. Facebook lost an initial challenge to the gag order, but took the case to the DC Court of Appeals. A decision is still pending, but the court did rule that Facebook and the government could post an unsealed notice to any groups with an interest in the matter. Public briefs were then filed by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), rival tech companies and consumer advocacy groups in support of Facebook. While not revealing specific details of the case, the briefs, and Face

facebook's messenger app adds live location-sharing

Facebook added a feature to its Messenger app on Monday to allow users to share their locations continuously for up to an hour, ramping up competition with tools offered by Apple and Alphabet's Google Maps.The company has found that one of the most used phrases on Messenger as people talk to friends and family is "How far away are you?" or some variation, Stan Chudnovsky, head of product for Messenger, said in an interview.
Sharing location information on Facebook Messenger is optional, but it can also be live. "It happens to be what people are saying, what they're interested in the most," he said.Sharing location information is optional, but it can also be live, so that once a user shares the information with a friend, the friend can watch the user's movement for up to 60 minutes.Messen

facebook albums will store any kind of status update

In addition to being able to compile and categorize pretty much every kind of status update, you can now choose a "featured" album to display on your profile. If you have friends who go on crazy adventures, you can follow theirs to get notified about their latest escapades. But if you went with them on those adventures, you can all collaborate on a single album now that Facebook has made the process easier -- all you have to do is toggle the option on when you create a new one.With these changes, you can tell a fuller and more compelling story with each and every folder in your collection. The social network is clearly aiming to turn creating and maintaining albums a more interactive and personal experience, probably as a way to compete with its youth-focused rivals like Snapchat.

the facebook story feature looks like what snapchat should have been

The social media network plans to introduce new ways for the Facebook community to create custom frames and effects. The goal, Facebook says, is for the camera “to be a home to hundreds of dynamic and fun effects that give you new ways to connect with friends, family, and your community.”I never got into the Snapchat craze, but then again, I’m not the target audience for that sort of app. Millennials seem to love it, though, based on the number of younger folks I see posting their stories in Messenger. Maybe Facebook is stealing some of this idea from Snapchat and others, but that almost seems to be the de facto norm these days. Facebook has the user base for this to be an even greater success than Snapchat. I might even play around with it some when it rolls onto my device.Curious what th

In a recent post, Mark Zuckerberg said his company will hire 3,000 content moderators this year to, "help us get better at removing things we don't allow on Facebook like hate speech and child exploitation."

facebook-whatsapp issue sent to constitutional bench

When Facebook acquired WhatsApp, it was said that social media giant Facebook would be using data from the hugely popular WhatsApp to personalize content on its platform.While this was apparently a business decision, several privacy issues come into play. The issue was of users who had signed up with WhatsApp with its own user contract and then had to content with its merger with Facebook, where the wording of the contract may be different.This appeal, before the Supreme Court bench of Chief Justice JS Khehar and Justice DY Chandrachud had come up from a judgment of the Delhi High Court, where WhatsApp was permitted to share data after September 25, 2016, pursuant to user agreement.On April 5, the issue was whether this case merited hearing from a constitutional bench of seven judges.
