Twitter Redevelops The Web Page For iPad

Looks like to many social networking websites, iPad is a thing they sure have to adapt to. With a brand name like Apple, it’s no wonder they get all the street cred.

Although there had been applications for using both Twitter and Facebook on the iPad, neither of these social networking behemoths were satisfied with their performance. Therefore, Facebook started Project Spartan, an effort to develop a separate HTML5 based Facebook page for the iPad.

Facebook Buys iPad Book Publisher

Looks like the social networking giant Facebook is now making a leap in to e-book industry. Push Pop Press is a renowned iPad e-book publisher known for re-mastering and publishing content such as Al Gore’s “Our Choice”.

The publisher had been working on some other titles for touch devices lately. According to latest reports Facebook has procured Push Pop Press. We can’t tell what exactly Facebook is going to do with the acquisition but one thing is clear that Facebook is definitely not going to publish e-books.

Yet Another Privacy Concern With Facebook: Video Glitch

Privacy is one thing upon which social networking sites’ users never compromise. But sometimes, due to some fault, their privacy is breached leading to defamation of the company.

Facebook recently got hit by such a glitch which allowed anyone in one’s friend list to view all of his/her videos including even those videos that were blocked by the user. Videos are usually more sensitive compared to pictures. So you would expect that Facebook’s privacy features would work properly to save the user trouble regarding the content in a video.

Share Your Facebook Deals With Friends – Coming Soon

It also shows deals and promotions on the left side of the home page with the feeds. According to Facebook, it will let people buy deals on Facebook and share them with their friends.

NEW Facebook Comments – No More Privacy Online

Facebook launched a new public commenting platform Tuesday evening but has not been too public about the changes. It has not release any information or explained how it works, like it has done in the past with some of the other enhancements (check-ins for example). The one exception — Dan Rose, Facebook’s VP of Partnerships and Platform Marketing, spoke briefly about it at the Webtrends Engage conference in San Francisco.

These changes allows Facebook to become a prominent market leader not just on their site but on the sites of all others, by changing the way people communicate and connect. The new platform exposes the real identities to the comments people leave on sites. For some this is a great thing, for others who prefer anonymity not so much. For obvious reasons the quality of comments could improve but as more and more people become concern with privacy — exposing comments and real identities to the Interwebs could lead to less commenting or perhaps an increase in fake profiles (specifically created for external communication) on the social network or both.

Lots of questions and little answers, perhaps this is the main reason why they have not said much.
