Meet UpSling, A Revolutionary Contact Manager App

Ever find it frustrating when you’re trying to get someone’s number in a rush but just don’t have time to grab all the details? Picture this, you’ve just met someone on the subway and you quickly try to exchange details just before they get off on the next stop.

Do you hate having to worry if you missed getting their full number? Did they forget to include an area code, or have a confusing e-mail address? With UpSling, from Deliri Inc, you no longer have to worry about getting the details.

Yahoo Mail Is Harvesting Your Emails

Yahoo e-mail users are outrageous about Yahoo’s new Terms and Conditions that now gives them the right to snoop in on people’s e-mails. What makes matters even worse is that this same rule applies to e-mails that are sent to Yahoo users.

Yahoo claims that the new changes are being implemented to better understand behavioral advertising and improve their search filters, but Yahoo users aren’t too pleased with the change in service.

Facebook Loses 7.5M Users In U.S. And Canada

For the first time in Facebook history, the social media giant is actually losing customers at high numbers. Facebook lost six million users in the United States last month, dropping from 155 million to 149 million. It also lost an additional 1.52 million users in Canada, an 8% decrease.

Fortunately, growth was still up about 2% from growth in Mexico and Brazil but the fact that the numbers are taking a dive for Americans and Canadians seem a bit strange. Do you think people finally realized the toll Facebook took on privacy? Were they tired of having their friends know every little profile change and update about them?

Facebook Rolls Out Facial Recognition, Worldwide

Facebook is proud to announce that the social media giant now has integrated facial recognition in its online platform. This new system allows content to be match with faces for an easier way to tag photos. Although tagging is still done by your friends, the new facial recognition software detects the face and pushes it like an advertisement on the right hand side of your friends’ screen.

This new system allows for quick and efficient tagging for those moments where you wish you could tag but don’t feel like being stranded down to the computer all day.

Facebook Has Been Punked!!

Two Europeans have developed a site using photos, locations and names from Facebook. Their project, Lovely-Faces.com, launched earlier this week with more than 250,000 photos and Facebook is not happy.


The project was based on the theory that social networking is naturally addictive and in our human DNA. Based on their analysis, it’s about exploring something that has never been done before: staying in touch with past and present friends in a single, potentially infinite, virtual space. It is also about connecting and sharing photos and details of your life with a universe filled with millions of people spread across the globe that seems like just a click away.
