Facebook has created an entire fuss with the announced changes. Timeline Profile, music sharing, focusing on the visual and other new features were analyzed in the international press. However, we still do not see big differences.
The first question that comes in mind in the next second is “why we still do not have the new version of Facebook?” The answer would be the greater number of Facebook users and the time necessary to update the new features for each one. At first, the changes are tested internally by Facebook employees.
Once officially launched, changes take place according to geographical areas, after a certain algorithm. Thus, users in the U.S. will be the first to see changes, but even there will be a phased update. In addition you may need to close and open the browser to activate the new version, or to login again. Fresh announced Timeline will not be available to many users until later this year only. So, judging by geographical theory, you will have to wait.
The Facebook strategy directly influences the IT company now led by CEO Tim Cook. So far, Apple has dominated applications through the App Store platform, where users could download free or with a payment, various programs designed to facilitate online communication.
And about a year ago, co-founder of Facebook claimed that iPad is not a portable device and is not “worthy” of a dedicated application, Mark Zuckerberg seems to have second thoughts. The company has just launched such a program that will work on iPad tablet.
According to officials Facebook declarations, of the approximately 350 million people who access social networking site, monthly, via mobile device sites, half access the network through web browsers and embedded applications use only a quarter in the gadget’s operating system, and iOS from Apple or Google Android operating.
Facebook launched a new application for iPad, free, available in App Store, highly anticipated by the fans of social networking site, writes the Financial Times. The program allows tablet users to socialize with millions of other members of the network in a much simpler manner and more efficient one. If about a year ago the co-founder of Facebook claimed that iPad is not a portable device and is not “worthy” of a dedicated application, Mark Zuckerberg seems to have now second thoughts. The company has just launched such a program that will work on an iPad tablet.
The new application functional on the iPad is more “fun and attractive” to use the social network. It is available for free in App Store. When users want to access other applications built on Facebook platform, for example games, they will be directed back into the App Store. In terms of paid applications, Apple will charge a fee of 30%.
Recently it was discovered that through the Facebook Like button the social network users can switch between them not only opinions, impressions, etc., but also a more special type of malware – and that is a worm, which once installed on the accounts of Facebook, “spread” further through links posted on the Wall.
It seems that those who have created this worm have profited from existing vulnerabilities in Java script Like button and used this to force thousands of users to post the link wall-virus personal sites, thus virus is to “reach” all friends of those infected, ready to be harvested and planted on.
