Facebook unveils new messaging service, says email is ‘too formal’

Posted in Facebook by Conner Flynn on November 15th, 2010

Facebook has just announced an updated messaging service that promises to take social networking activity to a new level. You get to decide on how you want to ‘converse’, through SMS, chat, email or Messages. They will receive your message in a real-time conversation, with no need to worry about which recipient prefers chatting over email etc.

Users will also be able to own an @facebook.com email address. There will not be a subject line though and you can’t mass forward mails among others, keeping things limited to just conversation. Messages and email addresses will be launched over the next few months.

Update: Facebook denies creating a Facebook Phone

Posted in Facebook by Conner Flynn on September 19th, 2010

If you had your hopes up for a new Facebook phone, well, you can forget it. Facebook spokesperson Jaime Schopflin has come out and denied that the social networking giant is creating a “Facebook phone.” It just isn’t happening.

Is Facebook building a phone?

Posted in Facebook by Conner Flynn on September 19th, 2010

According to TechCrunch’s sources, Facebook is creating its very own cellphone. Apparently, they’re building the OS and have tasked a hardware manufacturer to build everything else around it. When Google’s Nexus One was announced back in January, Facebook supposedly began planning this mystery phone.

They wanted something that would integrate Facebook contacts more deeply than anything Android or any other platforms had done before. Two Facebook employees, Joe Hewitt and Matthew Papakipos are leading the team involving the OS, using their previous experience as Firefox browser creator and Chrome OS builder to launch a Facebook worthy phone.

Groom updates Facebook Relationship status at the altar

Posted in Facebook by Conner Flynn on December 2nd, 2009

Human beings have never been so connected with one another and obsessed with info. Then again, maybe we are all just stupid monkeys tweeting our every move, trying desperately to leave our mark on this world before the Grim Reaper comes tweeting @you.. I iz in yer reality takin ur soul.

Whatever the case, this couple is really into the facebook that all the kids are using. It was a normal wedding ceremony until the groom pulled out his phone and changed his relationship status on Facebook to ‘married’ right there at the altar. The bride followed suit, and the crowd gets a good laugh. Then the preacher says “If it’s official on Facebook, it’s official in my book,” he says.

Facebook gets more Twittery with Lite and tags

Posted in Facebook by Darrin Olson on September 11th, 2009

Facebook Lite launched along with status taggingWe all know Facebook is continuously evolving, and just recently the social networking behemoth made some announcements that will likely make its popularity even larger, partly by making things smaller. On Thursday Facebook launched Facebook Lite, which is basically a scaled down version of the current Facebook site. Existing users can log onto Facebook Lite and it even uses the same cookies to recognize you if you are already logged in. All you friends are there and you can post messages, but it’s just got a little fewer “pieces of flare” about it.

The idea for Facebook Lite is to make a slimmer version of Facebook, not too unlike Twitter, that more people could use in places that have limited access to bandwidth, so the pages are not so “heavy” to load. So far the site is ironically only available in the U.S. and India, but I suppose they have to test it out somewhere. Chances are it will be rolling into some more obscure areas of the world soon.

Facebook’s deal with two devils

Posted in Facebook,Google,Microsoft,News by Chetz on October 24th, 2007

Microsoft and Google both working on deals with FacebookSuppose you own a company that both Microsoft and Google want to own a part of. Who do you choose to do a deal with? Do you base your decision on which company you think will be the stronger in the future or just on who’s offering the most cash? This is the present dilemma that Facebook owner Mark Zuckerberg is facing right now. Both Google and Microsoft are neck-and-neck with striking a deal that would see either one of the two online titans getting a 5-to-10 percent ownership with Facebook. The deal is expected to close sometime today or tomorrow.

The potential deal is likely to be huge for whomever gets it. Both Microsoft and Google are set up to capitalize on serving advertising to Facebook’s 34 million members. No one from either of the three companies is offering to comment about the deal but if the “The New York Times” is reporting that it exists, take it to the bank.
