Instagram is definitely here to stay. Coming from a rough journey which begins with a brief spell with the IPhone platform, setting a global admiration for the Apple manufactured product before migrating to Android for series of innovative records to date. 

Instagram, the visual messaging app was launched years back in 2010 on the Android platform. However, the year 2012 witnessed Mark Zuckerberg’s company – Facebook acquiring Instagram for a whopping $1 Billion. Well, that value has confidently nurtured up to a worthy investment considering the milestone Instagram currently standing on with a 1 Billion downloads in the play Store. Instagram is more like Facebook’s baby of the house of the house as it equals the 1 Billion download feat achieved by Facebook, WhatsApp, and Facebook Messenger. 

With this development, it simply positions Instagram as the 19th app in Google’s Play Store to hit 1 Billion downloads, finally settles in the class of other Facebook apps and Google’s apps. Meanwhile, Gmail was the first to hit the 1 Billion mark, next was Google Maps, and followed by YouTube and Facebook respectively. More so, these two giants US-tech (Google and Facebook) are the only two developers or publishers currently to record apps with the 1 Billion download mark. But considering their heavy customer, and fan base – it shouldn’t be that surprising. Continue Reading...

Social media largely easily attracts diverse forms of humanity onto its platform for different motives or purpose regardless of your tribe, root, backgrounds et al. However, this also implies negative minded people such as terrorists equally see social media as a means of promoting radical thoughts, evil intention or recruitment purposes.

This frequent  development has prompted Twitter to actively delete such accounts in cases of such. A look at Twitter’s history record shows about 125,000 terrorism-related accounts have been suspended alone so far this year. According to Reuters, Twitter has embarked on a continuous process to completely take down on such devilish accounts, with an addition of 235,000 accounts suspended. 

This simply implies a total of 360,000 terrorism-related accounts have been suspended till date by Twitter. Continue Reading...

You can never rule out the game of Soccer in the heart of humanity. It is a big deal for huge numbers of fans around the world especially in Nigeria with strong followership for the Premiere League matches. Although, some fans of Premiere League soccer matches inside the US and some other countries hardly have access to these games. The exciting news is that Facebook is getting into the live streaming realm for Premiere League matches.

Firstly, if you don't follow soccer or have no idea what a testimonial match is, it's basically a practice game; where a club has a match to honour a player for service to the club. However, this is the first time that Facebook has ever streamed a Premiere League Match and the game will be between Manchester United and Everton. The game is also Wayne Rooney's testimonial match. The England and Manchester United team captain shared his excitement on his Instagram page @waynerooney. Continue Reading...

How To Tell If Someone Has Blocked You On Snapchat

If you are a regular Snapchat user, you probably pride yourself on how original and witty your posts can be. The app helps keep this pride intact with all the positive feedback it gives users. But what it doesn't make clear is when others have seen quite enough of your Snapchats and decided to block or delete you.

Fortunately, if you just have to know, there’s a way to check that and it’s not difficult. 

According to TechInsider if you want to make sure someone’s still following you all you have to do is search for their name in your friends list and tap and hold their name to bring up their Snapcode (the yellow ghost icon). 

Here’s the moment of truth – if you mutually follow each other you should be able to see your friend’s Snapscore underneath their Snapcode. Their Snapscore is the total sum of every photo and video they’ve sent or received in the app.

There are now half a billion active users on the photo-sharing app Instagram, the company has said.

More than 300 million people use it at least once a day, it added.

The service was bought by Facebook in 2012 for about $1bn (£677m), and has grown rapidly ever since.

According to the company, an average of 95 million photos and videos are posted each day. Co-founder Kevin Systrom told the BBC its success was the result of "a lot of hard work".

In its five and a half years, Instagram has rocketed past Twitter, thanks in part to its adoption by high-profile celebrities and sports stars.

Instagram's biggest competitor for youthful eyeballs, Snapchat, is understood to have surpassed 100 million users.

Instagram was launched in 2010, with 25,000 people downloading the app on its first day.
In growing to the 500 million milestone, the app has suffered its fair share of controversy.

In 2012, changes to its terms of service had users worried it was looking to sell their pictures to advertisers. The changes were rolled back - the service insisted the furore was due to a failure of communication, rather than a nefarious monetisation plan. Still, users were unnerved.

Unease about how a Facebook-owned company would seek to bring in profits has followed ever since. Continue Reading...

Messaging giant WhatsApp has now fully implemented strong end-to-end encryption on its platform and across all mobile platforms for which it offers apps (Read here).

This means users of the latest versions of the messaging app will have their comms and media end-to-end encrypted by default.

End-to-end encryption means the content of communications are not stored in plaintext on WhatsApp’s servers. Nor is the company able to decrypt users’ messages to access them since it does not hold the encryption keys. So WhatsApp will be unable to be compelled to hand over messaging data — even if served with a warrant by authorities demanding access.

Snapchat Inc., operator of a popular social-messaging app, released an update that steps up competition with Facebook Inc., owner of rival mobile communication services; Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp.

I want to believe you’re a WhatsApp user and the chances are high since more than one billion people open the app each month. It might interest you to know that the chat app just added some creamy new formatting options. Now you can use bolditalics and strikethrough in your messages with friends and family 

These tricks, a rare update that might actually (slightly) change how people use WhatsApp, are pretty easy to master:
  • For bold: add an asterisk (*) before and after the specifics words : e.g. *hello*
  • For italics: add an underscore (_) before and after the specifics words: e.g. _hello_
  • For strikethrough: add a tilde (~) before and after the specifics words: e.g. ~hello~

Today begins a new feat by Twitter as it creates a unique way of interacting with images by adding description to images in Tweets. 

The announcement was made this morning in it's official blog. People using iOS and Android apps can add descriptions; also known as "alternative text" (alt text) to images while Tweeting. 

This new feature will assist visually impaired people the chance to hear what an image is about even when they can’t make out the details or see it.

"With this update, we're empowering everyone to ensure content shared on Twitter is accessible to the widest possible audience." - Twitter

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Instagram wants to help you choose what pictures you see and when (Like it's parent company Facebook) by using algorithms to determine important pictures.

When you log into your account on the web, the features or experience you encountered is quite different compared to the mobile platform. Although, your account is quite visible, still you're able to browse through your photos and that's like how much you can do. Everything else was absent.

However, Instagram recently changed it's features on web with the introduction of the notifications tab, a little heart-in-a-circle icon in the upper right corner which shows you a feed of activities related to your account. The activities or functions include: Continue Reading....

Arguably, Facebook is the most popular mobile app in the world. With 1.44 billion mobile monthly active users as of Dec. 2015.

Unfortunately for BlackBerry users, the creamy romance between these two will come to an end. They won't be a part of this statistic come year-end, as Facebook will stop supporting the BlackBerry and BBOS (BlackBerry Operating System) platforms at the end of 2016. 

According to reports, Facebook-owned messaging app WhatsApp announced it will stop supporting BlackBerry devices by the end of the year.

A judge in Sao Paulo has ordered WhatsApp to shut down for 48 hours, starting at 9pm Eastern tonight. 

WhatsApp is the single most used app in Brazil, with about 93 million users, or 93% of the country’s internet population. 

It’s a particularly useful service for Brazil’s youth and poor, many who cannot afford to pay the most expensive plans on the planet. Brazilian telco’s have been lobbying for months to convince the government that WhatsApp’s voice service is unregulated and illegal (not entirely unlike the taxi industry’s posture on Uber), and have publicly blamed the “WhatsApp effect” for driving millions of Brazilians to abandon their cell phone lines. Continue Reading...

Twitter is changing one of its most iconic features. For me, it's a huge step in the right direction.

Favorites, which have typically been represented by stars, are now becoming "likes" and gets replaced in the form of hearts, the company announced today on its blog post. The hearts will also appear on Vine's apps and website.

Likes will work similar way as favorites; hearts will appear where the stars once did underneath tweets. The "favorites" section in your user profile, which shows tweets that you have favorited, will also be renamed "Likes." 
The change is meant to "make Twitter easier and more rewarding to use," according to product manager Akarshan Kumar, who says the star can be be confusing for new users.

Facebook launches Signal, a way for journalists to gather news without Twitter


Earlier today, Facebook announced Signal, a free discovery and curation platform that journalists can use to see what’s trending on both Facebook and Instagram. It’s main purpose is to make the news-gathering process easier. Signal is available on desktop only for now.

This comes one week after it made its Mentions app available to journalists with verified profiles, Facebook is simply enticing up its efforts to win over journalists, who tend to rely on Twitter as a news source more so than Facebook. Signal makes it easier to find content, so presumably this means more of it will be showing up in articles and on blogs. Continue Reading...

Sharing video via Twitter just got a lot better, as the social platform now allows users to shoot and share landscape videos.

To use the new landscape mode in the Twitter app, simply select to add a photo to your post. Select the camera icon, and click the red video button. Turn your phone sideways, and start shooting!
