Facebook Messenger for iPhone is updated today with some new features and bunch of performance improvements. One of the new feature which personally I really liked is Stickers.
Facebook Stickers was first introduced in Android for Facebook Messenger. If you are already a Facebook app user and have used Stickers than no need of any tutorials on how to use it. User can even download the new Stickers if you are happy with the current one.
And Second update which I was waiting for was Swipe for Delete conversation. Most of the iOS app has this feature already available. but surprisingly it was still pending with Facebook but with this update Facebook has included this feature.
Other than this two main features there are some bug fixes and also performance enhancements. But with Chat heads released for main Facebook app I am still not cleared why don’t they integrate the two and make it one. Please let me know your view for the new feature.
Facebook is perhaps the most common social network around the globe in today’s era. People do not just use it but they are addicted to it. Facebook has surely given a new turn to our communications. Our communications and connections have taken a new perspective with the emergence and acceptance of Facebook.
Why Facebook is so Popular
This far-flung usage of this amazingly famous social network is probably the result of numerous facilities which it has been providing to its users over the years. You get to know a lot of new people of your type on this network and it is really easy to stay in contact with such people with similar interest. Staying in touch with variety of people gives you an exposure to a strange new world which is enriching in terms of experience and benefits. Facebook increases the probabilities of your social life; it gives you confidence to interact with different people and lessen your defenses if you keep in mind that you are using it for augmentation and not for replacing your real life connections.
Great way to Find New People
One main advantage which almost everyone acknowledges is you can not only meet new people here but you also get the opportunity to strengthen and renew your existing relationships for it has the ability to connect us with our far off family members. We get to see their picture, their views about multiple issues, their routine, their likes and dislikes and more. The firmness and strength of our relationships increases to a great extent this way.
A Great way to connect with old friends
The site provides you with the option of friend finding which helps you find your long-lost friends which you find nowhere to be seen. You can get in touch with them all over again by merely making a couple of clicks. There is yet another advantage of Facebook that you do not need to posses any special quality for making your own page here. You feel like making your personal page here and you make it. You can advertise without getting charged. You can publish your products here easily and you can create pages from where you find employees or employers conveniently.
Be as narcissistic you can be
Here is the advantage for which we use Facebook to a great deal. Here you can keep blowing your own trumpet and no own will get offended apparently. Your public can not run away (wow! but for God sake do not annoy sensible people by making posts as “g0ing t0 waShro0m” everyone goes and publishing it is not a good idea at all) so keep telling people about your achievements through posts, make them jealous of you, post absurd things which you lately did and of course, interesting things about yourself, too.
The potential benefits of such networking sites as Face book simply cannot be denied although people have a few insecurities which are negligible evidently which is the reason that the popularity of social networking channels as Facebook keeps increasing with time. And now the most eye-popping advantage which we take for granted, it is free.

A day after Facebook Home which was released to Play Store for HTC One and Samsung Galaxy devices, a well known hacker XDA created a version which runs on any Android devices.
Facebook Home is basically a replacement of your home screen, in short it’s a Android Launcher. It makes Social Connections and its content as a replacement of the launcher and personally I just love it. Facebook’s first version of Home was designed only for a few top-tier Android phones, specifically the HTC One, One X, One X+, Samsung Galaxy S3, S4 and Note 2.
Now the other Android users who are waiting for to install Facebook on there phone than below are the step by step instruction on how to install Facebook Home. Before going through the below steps please note that you need to uninstall all the Facebook related apps installed on your phone i.e. Facebook app or Facebook messenger app.
Download the Facebook Home APK for Android RAR package from XDA here.
Un-rar the package and install both the APK’s. Please be sure that side loading APK’s is enabled on your device. You can do that by browsing to Settings—>Security and checking the Unknown Sources box.
Restart the device (Not necessary for every device).
Connect your Facebook Account to the new modified Facebook app that you installed and enable Facebook home in the app settings
With the above steps you can install Facebook Home on your Device. I tried on my LG device and it runs awesome. Please let me know if anyone is facing the issue while installing.
Facebook’s big announcement today was the new Graph Search. It was really a critical announcement since after the stock was tumbling down analyst were really worried about the future of Facebook and its new development. Facebook’s graph search is not just a Social search but the whole new way of using Facebook.
According to Facebook, Graph Search is not the web search and its not meant to replace the Web Search. Its a way to search People, access information and whole things which are already available on Facebook. But along with this it will also return the web search when its unable to find it on Facebook and will return Bing web results. This will really help Bing to get the ground in Web Search market and so its a bad news for Google search.
Main things Facebook’s Graph Search is centered around is People, Photos, Places and Interest. Example of search is Search TV show watched by Doctor Or Apps used by friends of friend. In short you can search anything which are inter connected. With this things it really has a great potential to be very powerful search engine and now since it has a billion of users its very much likely that People will use Graph Search more than Web Search which may indirectly benefit Bing search too.
With this Future of Graph Search looks great and has potential to replace the normal search with this new Social search. Please share your views or comments regarding the same.
