Facebook Snapchat-like Feature Soon to Win Users Hearts

I am not familiar with this app called Snapchat but after I checked it out, I see the reason why Facebook is setting gears in motion to create the same for their users.

What is Snapchat?

Snapchat is a photo-messaging service that allows users to send photos that is set to self-destruct after a specific period, say 1-2 minutes.

You might ask, what is the point of taking a picture and sending it to someone only to destroy it right after?

Apparently, these photos are not taken from a reunion, a church service or anything that includes a common courtesy for decency.

In fact, the practice of using Snapchat is often referred to as “Sexting,” as users commonly use the service to exchange nude photos of each other. If you were bold enough for a fleeting moment and shared a photo of yourself unclothed, would you like Snapchat to archive it for future use? No way!

Facebook and Photos

With the way photos are overflowing on our Facebook archive, it is plain to see where Facebook is heading with this plan of a photo-messaging self-destructing service. Not that Facebook is going into the sexy and shady side of the business (if you know what I mean) but my guess is that Facebook is trying to steal Snapchat users and make them prefer the social network to it.

Think of it, if Snapchat users know about Facebook rolling out the same feature and with their friends all on the site, they will no doubt jump ship in a matter of seconds, leaving Snapchat bereft of users.

The day that this photo-messaging service rolls out will be the doomsday for Snapchat. It seems like Facebook is extending its arms trying to usurp every working and successful app service it can get its hands on.

Will you use this feature once it is available on Facebook? Or do you find this Snapchat-like photo-messaging service disturbing?

Pope's First Tweet Bombarded With Questions

"Dear friends, I am pleased to get in touch with you through Twitter. Thank you for your generous response. I bless all of you from my heart.” - Pope Benedict XVI on Twitter

Wednesday, 12-12-12, is a memorable day not because it is composed of a series of 12’s that our generation may not encounter again but because the day marked the first tweet of Pope Benedict XVI.

Twitter indeed is a powerful medium if Hollywood celebrities, the U.S President and now the Pope are using it to communicate and reach out to their fans, voters and people respectively.

But as things go and human nature dictates, people are so full of questions that are bursting to be asked.

Now that the right person is on the line, people couldn’t be helped and so the series of inquisition started being thrown at the Pope’s Twitter handle @Pontifex using the hashtag #AskPontifex.

 Will you tweet to the Pope as well? Follow Pope Benedict XVI on Twitter @Pontifex.

Facebook Improves Privacy Setting – Allows Users to Take Down Photos

Before I was like dissing about how Instagram has turned wayward against Twitter by pulling out from the Twitter cards integration. Now since I exhausted that social media news that was not really a big deal at all.

The flavor of the day is Facebook and their plans for new privacy setting tweaks that they will be rolling out one of these days. 

Apparently, the new tweaks allow Facebook users to take down embarrassing photos owned by friends on the site. How does that work? No, it’s not simply untagging yourself. That does not work because even when you untag yourself your photos will still be appearing on your friends’ timeline. So it’s still there in all it’s shameful glory.

Facebook now has presented the ultimate solution that is better than untagging – a form letter to ask Facebook users to take down photos.

That’s it???

What happens when the owner of the photos don’t want to take it down? What can Facebook do then?
Hmm not really sure about that. I bet this scenario has not come up to any discussion. Well, you can always block the person, but what purpose will it serve? Your face is still on his or her photo gallery.

The real great thing about this privacy update is its accessibility. Now users have privacy shortcuts on every page of their Facebook, so we all can edit our privacy settings quite easily.

This is pretty much big news to noobs who do not know where is where on Facebook. What do you think?
