Facebook is rolling out an update to its Messenger application for iOS to protect users from a vulnerability in the operating system that allowed scammers to force users’ iPhones to automatically place expensive calls.
Slingshot, the photo- and video-sharing application released by Facebook last month, is one of the components of the social media campaign backing the digital video-on-demand re-release of feature film Affluenza by FilmBuff, a company that buys and distributes independent narrative films and documentaries.
It seems like Facebook’s privacy settings change almost on a weekly basis. A new iOS application from Germany, Kleek, hopes to make browsing and posting to Facebook from mobile phones a simpler experience. Kleek allows users to essentially create their own algorithms, filtering a news feed to see the friends and pages they want to see and giving users control over who sees what they post.
