Facebook has made its focus on producing stand-alone applications more than clear in recent weeks, but two of its pre-Facebook Creative Labs efforts, Poke and Camera, are now history, as the social network has removed them from the iTunes App Store.
Last November, Facebook revealed that more people share travel and vacations on the social network than anything else. Our money would have been on pictures of kids or food, and that’s pretty interesting in itself — it suggests that travel talk and pictures of famous landmarks don’t actually bother us that much. If they did, they’d be up there with baby photos and restaurant dinners and everything else we hate about our Facebook feed (like BitStrips and fake video links).
SocialSafe added Video on Instagram to the list of social media content that it allows users to back up, and backups of videos from the Facebook-owned photo-sharing network are saved along with comments, tags, and likes.
A hat tip to all of those who predicted that Facebook would introduce video sharing on Instagram at its press event at its headquarters in Menlo Park Thursday, as Co-Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Instagram Co-Founder and CEO Kevin Systrom took to the stage to debut Video on Instagram.
When Facebook released version 2.0 of its Pages Manager for iOS application earlier this month, it temporarily removed access to post insights such as clicks and people talking about this. Those features have been brought back in an update for the app released by the social network this week, sister blog Inside Facebook reported.
In January, Facebook prevented Twitter-owned video-sharing application Vine from accessing its find friends application-programming interface. Now, according to one report, the social network may be testing a video-sharing feature of its own.
