Facebook celebrates one billion users in single day

Image result for facebookSAN FRANCISCO: Facebook boasted of a new benchmark on Thursday in its seemingly inexorable march to internet ubiquity: a billion people used the social network in a single day.

"We just passed an important milestone," chief executive and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg declared in a post on his Facebook page.

"On Monday, 1 in 7 people on Earth used Facebook to connect with their friends and family."

"When we talk about our financials, we use average numbers, but this is different," Zuckerberg added.

"This was the first time we reached this milestone, and it's just the beginning of connecting the whole world."

Zuckerberg also posted a video dedicated to the achievement.

In its earnings update last month, Facebook said monthly active users surged 13 percent from a year ago to 1.49 billion. The number of mobile active users rose to 1.31 billion.

Facebook on Thursday also said it is building new technology that video creators can use to guard against their works being copied at the social network without permission.

"This technology is tailored to our platform and will allow these creators to identify matches of their videos on Facebook across pages, profiles, groups, and geographies," a blog post said.

"Our matching tool will evaluate millions of video uploads quickly and accurately, and when matches are surfaced, publishers will be able to report them to us for removal."

Facebook planned to soon begin testing the new matching technology with a select group of partners, including media companies.

The California-based social network said that it has got word from some publishers that videos are sometimes uploaded to Facebook without permission in a practice referred to as "freebooting."

Facebook is already using an Audible Magic system that uses audio "fingerprinting" to identify and block copyrighted videos from making it onto the social network without proper authorization.

"We want creators to get credit for the videos that they own," Facebook said.

"To address this, we have been exploring ways to enhance our rights management tools to better empower creators to control how their videos are shared on Facebook."

How Facebook Decides What’s Trending

The Donald, seen here eating a pork chop on a stick at a campaign event, trends more than the average American.
The Donald, seen here eating a pork chop on a stick at a campaign event, trends more than the average American.
People get their news from Facebook — a lot of people, it turns out.
FB trendingWhat that news is, though, depends on whom you follow and what pages you like. It also depends on what the broader Facebook community chooses to talk about. A combination of these elements determines what you see on the right side of your News Feed every time you log in.

But how exactly does Facebook decide what to put in the Trending queue? And why is it that trends sometimes show up hours if not days after they may be trending somewhere else (cough Twitter cough)?
Facebook shows you things in your Trending line-up the same way it shows you things in your News Feed: Algorithms. It takes into account a few personal things, like where you live and what Pages you follow. But primarily it looks for two broader signals: Topics that are being mentioned a lot and topics that receive a dramatic spike in mentions.
You can’t have one without the other. For example, Kim Kardashian is mentioned often on Facebook, so the total volume of mentions is always high and isn’t a good indicator of whether or not she’s part of a trending topic. Instead, Facebook looks for a spike in mentions relative to the normal chatter around Kim (and probably other celebrities, too). Things that trend aren’t just the most highly mentioned people or topics. They have to be tied to some kind of relevant event.
This is probably a good time to mention that what is important on Facebook (e.g. Zac Efron and Jimmy Fallon smashing eggs onto their heads) may be slightly different from what’s important to the New York Times.
One key for those of you who use Twitter to get your news — and there are a lot of you, too — is that “trending” on Facebook is different from “breaking.” Twitter specializes in breaking news, an area where Facebook has struggled. Facebook launched its own Newswire service in early 2014 which now has just over 100,000 followers, a very small number compared to the site’s 1.5 billion users. It has, more recently, been working on a breaking news app that sounds like a more direct competitor to Twitter, according to Business Insider.
That trending/breaking difference is an important distinction, especially for advertisers running a campaign to coincide with a specific trend. Not all trending stories on Facebook are happening right now. It’s just that people are talking about them right now, and that’s why the Super Bowl may be trending for days after the game is already over. For marketers trying to “join the conversation” on Facebook, understanding why and when something is trending is important, and still somewhat of a black box.
Advertisers want to reach as many people as possible, but they also want efficiency, which means reaching those people in as short a window as possible. Depending on the ad campaign, a long tail of mentions isn’t necessarily as effective as a quick spike, which is why TV is still very attractive to advertisers: TV has the power to gather lots of people at the same time.
Once a topic is identified as trending, it’s approved by an actual human being, who also writes a short description for the story. These people don’t get to pick what Facebook adds to the trending section. That’s done automatically by the algorithm. They just get to pick the headline.
It’s an imperfect system, sure — you’re bound to see things you don’t care about, and things that seem downright silly. (One perk of the system is that you can hide trends you don’t like.) But the next time you see “Deez Nuts” in your Trending topics, at least you’ll know to blame everyone else on Facebook.

Google Chrome extension lets you to watch and track your Facebook friends

THE Marauder's Map looked like fun in Harry Potter – but in real-life its exceedingly creepy.
The Harry Potter inspired Chrome extension allows you to track the movements of Facebook contacts

Facebook users may not realise just how easy it is for people to track their exact location.
I can still track their locations extremely accurately from the messages they send to the group
Aran Khanna
The hugely successful social network records your whereabouts every time you send a message using the Facebook Messenger app.
A new Google Chrome browser extension trawls this data and lets you track your friend's movements.
The free browser plug-in uses GPS data to let you stalk your Facebook contacts – showing their precise movements on a map.
"Creepily track your friends from FB messages," the app listing promises in the Google Chrome WebStore.
The Marauders Map extension claims it was built as a demonstration – not as a tool for stalking

The extension is named after the magical document in the Harry Potter book series and film franchise which reveals the location of every person within the grounds of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
The developer behind the app claims the Marauder's Map extension can also track the movements of people you are not friends with – provided you have one Facebook Group in common.

"However, I can still track their locations extremely accurately from the messages they send to the group."
Whether people will install the extension to double-check on the whereabouts of their friends remains to be seen.
However, upon installation the app does warn: "this extension was developed as a demonstration not an actual tool to creep on your Facebook acquaintances".

What Google's Alphabet means for Android


In the wake of Google's announcement that it will restructure around a parent company called Alphabet, a lot of the focus has been on what Google doesn't have anymore. Self-driving cars, drones, fiber-optic Internet service — these projects are now essentially Google-free, the domain of the Alphabet conglomerate.
Google — the new, slimmed-down version — gets to keep search, ads, Android and other mature technologies and products, including YouTube. It still makes pretty much all of the money, but the brand will likely lose a little of the startup coolness it enjoyed by being associated with "moonshot" projects. (Not coincidentally, it'll also lose some of the pressure for those projects to perform financially.)
Still, this is certainly good news for Google's core businesses, especially Android, probably Google's most successful product outside of search (at least in terms of user base). For starters, severing the often-tenuous connections between Android and side projects like Fiber, Nest and Wing will better manage expectations internally and externally. As an example, when Google acquired Nest, there was a lot of speculation of perhaps one day seeing ads on thermostats or possibly a more subtle tie-in to Google's advertising and data-collection web. Nest CEO Tony Fadell was quick to publicly quash those notions, but the continued association with the Google brand, which hasn't always had the best track record on privacy, has been a psychological obstacle for many.
When it comes to Android, Alphabet spells out (see what I did there?) exactly where the ecosystem begins and ends. Technologies developed by other divisions of Alphabet — like Nest hardware, smart contact lenses, whatever Google Glass becomes, and life-sciences devices like health trackers — won't necessarily need to fit into the greater Android platform. That gives clarity to investors, observers, users and even the engineers designing these things.
There are thousands and thousands of distinct devices running Android, which is simultaneously the platform's greatest strength and greatest weakness.
Image: Mashable, Pete Pachal
But where the reorganization can help Android the most is in the advancement of Sundar Pichai to CEO of Google. Pichai's star has been on the rise for some time. He's keynoted the last two Google I/O developer conferences, and he's frequently the voice of the company at technology-focused events.
Pichai started his career at Google working on Chrome and inherited Android when former mobile head Andy Rubin moved on to work on robots for the company (and later just moved on). By all reports, he's a hard worker who has mentored a loyal team and has earned the respect of many in the company.
He's going to need that respect to turn Android into the engine that it was always intended to be. Google famously (perhaps infamously) doesn't make a penny from Android; it gives away the software in the hope that, by putting Google services front and center, the devices will serve as mobile delivery systems for millions of new customers.
Great on paper, not quite as awesome in practice. Putting aside the Android forks (like Amazon's Fire, Cyanogen and Oxygen), which explicitly purge Google services from the software and are gaining steam,
monetizing Android itself has been a tricky business for Google
monetizing Android itself has been a tricky business for Google. Manufacturers and wireless carriers looking to differentiate handsets from competitors has led to rampant fragmentation — only 18.1% of Android handsets run the latest major version, Lollipop. Compare that to 85% of iPhones running iOS 8. Take into account the hardware, which includes thousands of different handsets with who-knows-what chips powering them, and your user experience becomes and unpredictable mess. Sure, the market share looks good, but there's a reason developers still create apps for iOS first — users are far more inclined to download apps (and in turn spend money on them) when they're guaranteed a good experience. That's why iPhones account for the vast majority of profits (92%!) in the smartphone industry even though their market share is a fraction of Android's.

Google creates a new parent company called Alphabet

C is for "confusing."
Google announced late Monday that it is creating a new parent company called Alphabet, which will be run by its two founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin. Alphabet will replace Google Inc. as the business traded on the stock market; Google, the service, will be the largest single entity owned by that parent company.
As part of the move, Page, Google's founder and CEO, will take over as CEO of Alphabet (the company's URL will appropriately be ABC.xyz). Sundar Pichai, Page's top deputy at Google, will take over as CEO of Google. And no, this does not appear to be an April Fool's joke, though the company did hide at least one hilarious Easter egg in the announcement.
"Our company is operating well today, but we think we can make it cleaner and more accountable," Page wrote in an announcement on Monday titled "G is for Google."
"So we are creating a new company, called Alphabet. I am really excited to be running Alphabet as CEO with help from my capable partner, Sergey, as President."
In essence, this allows Google to build a more robust portfolio of businesses
In essence, this allows Google to build a more robust portfolio of businesses, each with its own dedicated CEO, under the Alphabet umbrella. Google's investments already extend well beyond search and smartphones to include the life extension project Calico, its moonshot division Google X and Nest, the home device manufacturer that it acquired for $3 billion last year. The operational change may help establish Google (or Alphabet) as an alternate version of Berkshire Hathaway, the portfolio of longterm businesses and investments run by famed investor Warren Buffett.
In an interview with The Financial Times last year, Page suggested that Buffett and his business are the closest models for what he wants to build in the future.
Beyond that, the change continues a long, gradual trajectory of freeing up Page from day-to-day management of Google, allowing the founder to think more broadly about the company's future. It also may just appeal to the vanity of top execs within the company: Suddenly there are a few more C-suite opportunities.
The move comes at a time when Wall Street is once again in love with Google, following a strong earnings report and the hiring of a well-regarded CFO. Investors appeared to cheer the introduction of Alphabet: Google stock jumped 5% in after hours trading following the announcement.

How To Rank In Google Without Links

How To Rank In Google Without Links [OSEO-03]
What I suggested is that you should replicate all links of your competitors and then go get even more.That video gathered quite a bit of comments on Facebook, where you guys where suggesting lots of other things that influence rankings, besides links.
So I decided to devote the next episode of the “Oversimplified SEO” to ranking without links!

How To Rank In Google Without Links

Here’s a quick recap of the idea behind the video:
If your Domain Rating is very strong, the pages of your website may rank high in Google even when having zero backlinks.
What is Domain Rating?
Domain Rating is the combined power of ALL backlinks that link to ALL pages of your website.
So to be honest, the headline of this video is a little bit misleading.
You can rank in Google without backlinks to this particular page. But this requires you to have TONS of links to other pages under that same domain.
Hope that doesn’t sound too confusing.
If you have any questions – just use the comments section below and I’ll make sure to address them!
