09/13/2011, I came across this wall post in Facebook the other day from a high school student – “when we go to our rooms, we open up our textbook – we TEXT our friends, and FACEBOOK on our phones.” How apt for the modern generation, and if they’re going to spend so many hours a day on Facebook, why not make sure they reap maximum benefits not from inane postings, but […]

09/11/2011, Who would have thought that a social networking site might eventually grow to cross paths with a search engine, as what we see going on between Google and Facebook? Google has since released their own social network, and both Google and Facebook are working on offering music features to their respective services. Facebook Music is said to roll out scrobbling and track unification features. Whoa – back up a minute […]
09/09/2011, For those of you who enjoy the ease at which you can group all your friends on Google+ and wish that there was an easier way for you to group your Facebook friends, you’re in luck. Facebook has been reported to have started rolling out the Smart Lists feature which automatically suggests friends that should belong to the same group. At the moment it only has three groups – people […]
09/08/2011, The HTC ChaCha is an Android device that made its way onto AT&T’s network. Given how big social networking is at the moment, it was probably understandable for HTC to push out a Facebook specific device, and now it looks like Motorola has decided to enter the fray with their EX225 Facebook handset.
09/07/2011, Remember the story that we covered earlier this morning which saw Facebook for iPhone getting upgraded to version 3.5? Well, there was more than meets the eye with this update, where a bunch of new features that came alongside also saw the shedding of some code. In fact, all code related to the iPad version was removed in this new update, and to put it in layman’s parlance, you can […]
09/07/2011, If you’re a huge fan of Facebook, then chances are you would want to give your Facebook app a go at the latest version 3.5 update for the iPhone, where it will include new sharing options from the compose screen alongside privacy controls which will match whatever you have set on Facebook’s website prior. Apart from that, your eyes will also benefit from new designs for Profile and Group walls; […]
09/07/2011, The dream wedding is often something that most little girls have in their mind when growing up, as they wait for Prince Charming to drive up in a Lamborghini (sorry, no more of that shining armor crap in this day and age), ready to whisk her off to a destination holiday for their honeymooon after all the necessary is done. Social networking has also helped made weddings more accessible to […]
09/01/2011, Pretty much everybody is on Facebook right now and it looks like Hyundai is going to tap into the massive network with a new marketing tool, according to a report from CNET. According to its sources, Hyundai has plans to add four new car-buying tools to its Facebook fan page, that will let car buyers (or anybody who feels like it) crowdsource for the opinions of their friends when it […]
08/31/2011, According to reports online, it looks like Facebook has plans to launch its own music service next month. Apparently a CNBC technology correspondent, Jon Fortt, mentioned that his sources have informed him “that Facebook plans to launch its long rumored music service at the f8 conference on September 22nd. Now, it seems likely that Facebook won’t actually host the music, but will partner with others to do that.” Other than […]
08/31/2011, Facebook has decided that they will no longer support the daily ‘Deals’ service that has yet to see action outside of the US, and at least it is rather comforting to know that the closure of this service will not affect check-in Deals that enables Facebook users to obtain access to a bunch of discounts as well as offers in shops or restaurants that they happen to ‘check into’.
08/26/2011, Scammers aren’t very nice people, in case you didn’t already know. They’re constantly taking advantage of the uninformed, seizing every opportunity to con a poor soul into revealing their personal details. One of their most common tactics are to take advantage of major events that draw people to their computers, like in this case – Hurricane Irene that’s scheduled to strike tomorrow. Fortunately there’s a solution to the problem of […]
08/25/2011, After failing to acquire Instagram this summer, it looks like Facebook will be taking matters into its own hands by creating its own filters instead, according to a report from the NY Times blog.

08/25/2011, Facebook hits yet another milestone according to a report over at ReadWriteWeb, where it states that social networking giant Facebook has managed to achieve yet another Internet milestone – that is, being the first website in the world that actually pulled 1,000,000,000,000 page views – with a dozen zeroes behind the single figure, that translates to a trillion – multiply that by 14 times and you get the idea of […]
