Mark Zuckerberg no Longer Single !

Interesting right ? Mark Zuckerberg changed his status from being single to ‘in a relationship’.

Credit

As reported, Facebook’s CEO has been dating his girlfriend Priscilla Chan since college but it was only this week that he made it clear for the world that he is in a relationship. 🙂

What could be the reason of delaying this ? It is slight surprising when Facebook’s creator himself is not so active on Facebook. By now people are so much into Facebook. Every person instead of asking the phone number asks for the Facebook ID. Share your view with me.

This new app will be available for all Java powered mobile phones. You do not need a smart phone for such purpose.

Facebook Credits come to India

Facebook’s much-loved feature is the Facebook games. Farmville, Cityville, Cafeworld and many more. Most people log in to Facebook everyday to check their farms, city or restaurant and they need Facebook credits to get the good stuff in the game. 🙂 Now, Facebook credits come to India.

Who ever plays Facebook games must be knowing Facebook Credits. We have once written how to get those credits, for free. In games like sorority life I have tried many times to get credits and saw that these things are not for India. As reported by msn, Facebook credits are made available for Indians now.

Beam, a mobile-commerce company, has sought the Reserve Bank of India’s permission to make Facebook Credits available in India. Beam’s Chairman and Managing Director Anand Shrivastav said,

We have a young subscriber base (60 per cent of Beam’s users are below 25) and are, therefore, driven by what they want us to do.

Facebook gives points to subscribers based on usage and lets users buy virtual stuff on the site. It retains 30 per cent as fee. Facebook Credits reached a new level of popularity earlier this month when Warner Brothers decided to stream Batman: The Dark Knight on the site. We Indian’s missed the chance to watch it online because of the unavailability of Facebook credits here.

For 30 Facebook Credits (equivalent of $3), one could have watched the 2008 movie over 48 hours, with an unlimited amount pauses. So, is that a threat to other mobile service providers ? Will this service be available to only Beam users ? Share your likes and dislikes here about the news.

Share music on Facebook with Shazam

Do you have a smart phone ? Do you like using Shazam ? Well if answer to both of your questions is yes then you may find this interesting enough.

Now with the update available for Apple iOS today, users can tag music and immediately upload it on Facebook to share with their friends. These tagged and featured songs will be available for others also to see, if they too have the app activated and updated.

Alex Musil, Executive Vice President Product Marketing, at Shazam said,

Over three million songs are Shazamed each day, and thousands of these are shared individually by people on Facebook every day. Shazam Friends now makes it effortless for you to see, preview, add to your tag list, and buy a track that your friends have discovered or listened to using Shazam.

It’s always nice to listen to your friend’s choice. If I am given a choice to listen to some random song, I will definitely ask for my friend’s choice.

How to use Shazam ?

  • Download the app on your mobile phone or iPod touch.
  • Hold the device up to a song that’s playing on the radio, in a coffee shop, in a store etc.
  • Hold it still for about a minute and the app will tell you the name of the song and the artist.
  • You then have the option to buy the song, share it on Twitter, Facebook, or email.

In Nokia phones you get a 30 day trial version, you can choose to buy also. what do you think ? Did you try this out ? Share your view with me.

Ask a Question: Facebook Relaunches it’s Feature

Did you notice today, that you can ask a question to many people on Facebook. Facebook relaunched it’s much-loved feature, Facebook Questions.

According to this feature, you can ask a certain question to many Facebookers. 🙂 We had this feature earlier also but with a difference.

All questions are still public, and answers by all users to the same question are listed on the same page. The difference is that each user gets a personalized view of the responses, ranked by what their friends voted on. Think of each answer as an anonymous poll where your friends’ answers are emphasized.

The questions are in a personalized way. Earlier it was for market research. Users can either add their own response, or just check a box to agree with answers already given by others. Specific places or products can be quickly included by linking to the appropriate Facebook page.

What do you think ? Share your view with me here. Do you like the return of Facebook Questions ? 🙂

Facebook Joins about and Info Tab into one, on Facebook Page

Earlier Facebook had two tabs separately for info and about. Today Facebook reconciled these two into one.

What do you think ? Will this make Facebook pages clutter free ? I kind of like this. There wasn’t any use of keeping two tabs, one will be more than enough. Instead, ‘about’ comes on the left hand side of the Facebook page.

What was creating problem is that when we tried to edit one tab then both got updated. Info and About were creating a nuisance, no more! What do you think ? Observe these and let me know.
