Facebook making more money from ads and mobile! »

Are you asking yourself why your facebook page reach have plummeted? are you wondering why your shares and status updates are rarely seen by your friends?

Here’s the answer, your social media is becoming a paid social media, these days when you share something with your facebook friends the site will offer you to pay in order to reach them all, if you don’t, you’ll probably only reach 10-20%.
Pages are worse, pages reach less than 5% eventhough many expect the number to be around 1%, as for the pages labeled by facebook as community pages they reach less than 0.5%!

And all this have been happening in the last year, and as a result the people and companies are finding themselves with no other option but to put in facebook a bigger part of their advertising budget.

Facebook yesterday posted second-quarter sales that surged 61 percent to $2.91 billion, exceeding analysts’ average estimate of $2.81 billion.

Mobile consisted of 62 percent of ad sales, up from 59 from last quater. Net income more than doubled to $791 million, with profit excluding some items at 42 cents a share, above the projection of 32 cents.

Uber to get into Facebook mobile Messenger App »

Zuckerberg has held preliminary talks with Uber CEO Travis Kalanick about potentially integrating Uber private driver service into the Facebook Messenger app, according to re-code sources.

This is just a preliminary discussion, nothing is decided yet, but it seams that facebook founder wants it’s standalone messaging App to be more than the useless redundant messaging app it is at the moment! The sight is set towards competitors WeChat and Line in Asia, that were successful in transforming their apps in eCommerce platforms.

Jibo - a robotic assistant or a SCAM via good CGI effects video?

It may seam difficult to believe but, the real thing might be actually close to what is shown in video, the founder is a MIT Professor and researcher in Robotics, so the product might actually be able to do what the makers claim! Eventhough, there’s some logical points in this crowd fund campaign:
1- Asking amount is too low to develop a prototype, let alone to start selling!
2- The video looks too good to be true! More of a pixar Wall-E animation than an actual product.
3- Movement wise, the movements are too slick to be real, there’s no feeling of the mechanic movement usually associated with robotic projects!

Jibo’s makers claim it’s the ‘World’s first family robot’. The device sits on a table or bench, and uses two high resolution cameras, 360 degree microphones, and an HD touchscreen to recognise faces, take photos, tell stories, deliver hands free messages, and more.

Jibo has just passed US$1,000,000 eventhough they have only requested a $100,000 funding. They won’t ship the first units until December 2015,and have a planned public release in 2016.
