Not only could we be being spied on, but you can also see who has recently viewed your Linkedin profile and new updates. The new feature shows you who has viewed what you have shared in the past two weeks, how it was received and who engaged with your share. Hopefully Facebook won’t introduce “who recently viewed your profile” as it might lead to red-faces and allegations we’re not as productive at work as we should be!
It seems like everyone on the web is jumping on the RSS reader bandwagon, and oddly enough there are rumours that Facebook are doing the same. The social media platform is developing a new app, innovatively named “Reader” to traffic popular news stories into one feed. How will Facebook know these popular stories? Because it is already tracking the stories you like.
Snapchat has taken over the way we IM and now children under the age of 13, who previously weren’t allowed to sign up, can now snap but have to keep their mouths shut. Yep, the little kiddies aren’t allowed to talk about their snaps or share, they can only edit. Seriously isn’t that what paint is for? Maybe this is a step towards Snapchat’s monetisation strategy as the company is already thinking of charging users to send longer snaps. Those cheeky chaps just want everyone to snap snap snap.
