The app quietly became available back in January but only in select markets. It is less than 1MB in size for quick download and load but includes Facebook's core features like News Feed, status updates, photos, and notifications. Facebook Lite is…

This is probably one of the rumors that won't just die. Ever since the HTC ChaCha and Salsa, there has been a long line of speculations about when the next Facebook phone will be out - and little by little, the puzzle pieces are forming the big picture as inch closer to the official announcement. Facebook has already sent an invite for an event this April 4 (Pacific Time), with the words "Come see our new home on Android."  In our opinion, the announcement will most likely be a software rather than a handset - which is probably a launcher…

Lately, there have been speculations that because of the spat between Facebook and Zynga, the latter is secretly contemplating on leaving the leading social networking site and putting up its own social gaming site, Zynga Live! This came about when Facebook started to require all 3rd-party applications to use its own payment system (Facebook Credits is the native virtual currency). As such, all transactions that go thru their system, Facebook gets a 30% cut. That 30% is a huge cut. Zynga is said to be making about $300 million a year and only 1/3 of it is thru lead generation.…

Facebook today announced that it categorically disliked the willful buying of Facebook Likes and will start cracking down on FB Pages. Facebook has always been doing some automated means to reduce the number of fake accounts and made-for-sale FB Likes. What they're doing now is ramping up on their efforts. To be clear, we do not and have never permitted the purchase or sale of Facebook Likes as we only want people connecting to the Pages and brands with whom they have chosen to connect. Beyond the need to maintain authentic relationships on Facebook, these third-party vendors often attempt to…

Facebook releases Camera App for iOS

Relevance: 81%      Posted on: May 25, 2012

Facebook has just recently launched its own photo app for the iPhone; creatively called Facebook Camera, which lets you take a photo, apply effects and captions and share it on Facebook. The app is developed by Facebook's own team and not Instagram's because the acquisition hasn’t closed yet. One of the advantages of the Facebook Camera over Instagram is its ability to upload multiple photos. It also has 14 filters, the ability to tag friends, “Like” photos and send comments. Since the app is closely tied to Facebook, it offers a smoother interaction with the social media site. “The big…

While there's a lot of talk about the new web-darling Facebook and its apparent overtaking of MySpace as the largest social networking site in the world (over 200 million), there's this lingering question whether Facebook will be the next Friendster.

With over 200 million Facebook members, and being the most active and fastest growing social networking site, one would expect an avalanche of participation. Didn't turn out to be that way, Facebook's own statistics suggest that around…
