Facebook's New Tool - Customize your News Feed

Facebook’s New Tool – Control & Customize Your News Feed

Facebook has introduced new tools in the News Feed Preferences that allows you to drive hands-on with your selected preferences. This new application has been rolled out on iOS initially and seems to provide for Android and desktop in future. The new tools present on your Time line preferences let you do following things:

  • You can Select Specific friends and pages so that your News Feed displays only the posts that you have selected.
  • You can set your preferences in such a way that, you’ll never miss any news that you wish to see.
  • New Application allows you see your favorites always at the top of your News Feed whenever a new update is shared on the Time line.

Facebook Revamps News Feed Tools

  • Just by tapping on a particular person with News Feed preferences, you can view the posts they’vw posted.
  • The new update allows you to hide posts from people whom you treat as non-sense on Facebook.
  • You will be able to prioritize people and pages that you wish to see first on your News Feed.

Facebook Tweaks News Feed Preferences

  • The name of preferred person will be appeared in your News Feed so that you can easily recognise the post has been shared by one of your favorites.
  • Facebook’s new tools have been tweaked so that it provides an option to link up with friends and pages that you’ve “Unfriend” or “Liked” in the past.

Greg Marra, the Product Manager at Facebook said that, “We rank [items in] your News Feed with the goal that whether you have five seconds or five minutes, you’re seeing the best of what’s in your feed.” She also added, “We know we don’t always get that perfect right now.”

Earlier, Facebook rolled with a news that it is testing “See First” that allows you to view selected posts on the top of the News Feed. Now, it has officially announced that users can have control in order to customize their News Feed.

Here  is the video of simple interface with new customizable options that are available on iOS:

Facebook is endeavouring to add new features so as to help people discover new brand pages and let them experience with simple interface with more customizable options. However, this new tweak seems interesting for us as well as the company that has totally relied on its own algorithm to direct the flow of your News Feed.

Everything That’s New In The Android ‘M’ Developer Preview 2 [Gallery]

On May 28th at the annual Google I/O developer event Google revealed the next version of Android, dubbed Android M for now. It’s filled with tons of new features, security enhancements, tweaks to the look and feel of Android 5.1 Lollipop, a new “Doze” battery saving feature, USB Type-C support, dark theme for settings, automatic app backups, and even multi-window mode.

The Android L developer preview remained largely static in the time between its launch and Lollipop’s official release. That isn’t the case with Android M, which Google says will receive monthly Over-The-Air (OTA) updates. Last week Android M Developer Preview 2 arrived on scene.

If you’re like me and absolutely want and need the latest updates, you might have already flashed Android M Developer Preview 2 onto your Nexus when it arrived last week. The first of them is now available for the Nexus 5 and 6.

Diving into Android M: What’s New With Developer Preview 2?

The Android M Developer Preview 2 is less about showing off new changes and more about (near) finalizing the many new APIs coming with Android M so developers can test them out prior to the final release. After all, this is a developer preview. Ars Technica tested Android M Preview 2 on the Nexus 5 and 6 and shared a few of its observations:

Rotating Home Screen:

Preview 2 of the next Android now supports auto rotate that also allows landscape orientation for devices, which normally is optimized for large screen devices or specifically tablet computers.

System UI tuner:

The other big additions are the new System UI Tuner options. The UI tuner was introduced in the first version of Android M and only let you rearrange the power control pulldown, but now it has been expanded with status bar options.

Android-M-developer-preview-2-enable-systemui-tuner

There’s an option to show a percentage readout in the battery status bar icon, which has been a favorite feature of modders. This has been built into AOSP forever but turning it on before required a rooted phone—now it’s very easy.

Redesigned App Drawer:

The most prominent change is the fixed app drawer, which looks much better than the Preview 1 version. The original implementation removed an entire column of icons to make room for huge index letters. It looked ugly and was a waste of space, so we’re glad to see them gone. There’s still the nice-to-have search bar at the top of the screen, and it actually looks like a search bar now.

The top row of apps in the app drawer, which isn’t alphabetical and changes all the time, is apparently the “predictive apps” bar. We’ll have to see how well it actually predicts what we want to use.

No more Dark Theme:

The one feature that seems removed (or at least hidden) is the “Theme” options that were in the developer settings. They’re just gone now. The removal of the feature just goes to show you that test builds don’t always give an accurate picture of what to expect from final software.

No more Dark Theme in Android M Developer Preview 2

Is the dark theme gone forever? Hard to say. It’s possible that they were merely testing it and decided it wasn’t worth keeping. Or dark theme might not be fully ready for prime time and was removed in preview 2 to further fix it up for a final release. Only time will tell for sure.

Storage gets a makeover:

Internal storage is always a hassle for smartphone users. Even with microSD expansion and USB On The Go (OTG) you always seem to need to keep an eye on available storage space. The new version of Android M introduces a simple line bar that shows how much space you have on your device with a breakdown of what is using up your internal storage.

RAM Manager:

One of the changes found in the original M Preview was an improved memory manager that added several new features including a way to better see how much RAM each of your apps was using.

RAM Manager in Android M Developer Preview 2

Finding the setting in M originally required you to take several steps, but in Preview 2 it is more prominently found in its own “Memory” tab right in the Settings screen.

Delete Screenshots:

Each time you take a screenshot in Android (4.0 and higher), you’ll get a notification in your tray letting you know it has been saved. The second version of the Android m developer preview has added a new delete option to the screenshot preview in the notifications shade. Now you can delete it as well.

This is still just a developer preview, so it’s still missing all of the consumer facing Google apps that will debut with the OS. There’s more Android M versions to come. The next one is scheduled for “late July.”

Facebook tests New Snapchat-like Photo Uploader

Features of Facebook’s New Photo Uploader

Facebook has begun testing a new photo uploader feature for iOS that provides users to upload a photo by adding filters, overlaid text so as to edit your photo with a most adorable look. Here are some of the features of the new photo uploader app for iOS.

  • New Photo Uploader lets you to type text over the image that you wish to upload on Facebook.
  • Added text can be re-sized by pinching over it and also place the text in the right position just by dragging the text wherever you wish to display it over the photo.
  • You can also add desired color to the text with the help of a ‘Slider’.

  • Auto color correction can be applied just by swiping over the photo.
  • Add stickers to your photos that you want to upload on Facebook.
  • Some of the additional functionalities of the new photo uploader include cropping photos, tagging friends to the uploaded photo and photo enhancements.

According to a Report form TechCrunch, “Since Facebook’s failed acquisition bid, it’s watched Snapchat grow and grow. Its attempts to clone Snapchat as a whole, Poke and Slingshot, have failed. Meanwhile, Japanese messaging app Line has gotten big on the back of stickers. So Facebook’s simply trying to bake the best of everything else into its own.”

Facebook is trying to follow Snapchat that has initially popularised this feature of adding texts to the photos. Earlier, Facebook has failed to acquire Snapchat in a bid and has observed that Snapchat become very popular because of its appealing features. Facebook tried to bid Snapchat before two years i.e., by the end of 2013 for $3 billion, but Snapchat declined the offer. Snapchat is now valued 5 times more than the bid value of Facebook i.e., $15 billion.

For this reason, Facebook is testing a new photo uploader for iOS that has similar features of Snapchat. The latest rollout of Facebook is still under experimental stage, but not yet revealed officially. It is anticipated to be unveiled by the end of the year for all its users. Facebook is planning to integrate this new photo uploader feature as an app on its social network but not as a separate app. These days, Facebook is vigorously working on many apps and planning to implement New Algorithm in order to improve its News Feed.

Facebook has not yet confirmed its integration on its social network app. Let us wait for this new feature to be rolled out as a beneficial app for all the users of popular Social media.

Moto X (Gen 3) Specifications:

The new Moto X seems to be called the Moto X Sport, which suggests it might be a ruggedised version of the current 2nd Gen Moto X. It shares the same 5.2 inch screen after all, but will increase the rear camera to 16-megapixels from its current size of 13-megapixels. The front camera will have a 5-megapixel sensor.

According to the images, the Moto X Sport will have a quad-core 1.5GHz processor, but this seems unlikely if Motorola want to keep it as its leading flagship handset.
