First major update for the standalone camera app
How is this app working for you?
Paul Higgins: Why isn’t Tumblr on there?
Facebook’s domination is crushing. Even when we add up the visitor numbers for all the other 25 sites, that amounts to less than a third of Facebook’s traffic.

Twitter has been integrated, now it looks like Facebook will finally be integrated into iOS. I wonder if FB will make their app better on iOS.
According to the Times, Facebook employees, engineers, and others familiar with the matter say that the company has added to the group working on the project, codenamed “Buffy,” and that it has hired “more than half a dozen former Apple software and hardware engineers who worked on the iPhone, and one who worked on the iPad.”
Not surprisingly, Facebook has come out with a new iPhone app that is similar to Instagram. The highlights of this app include the ability to upload up to 30 photos at once to your Facebook, view Facebook photos uploaded by your friends (newsfeed but for photos only), and you can ‘like’ and comment on photos. There are also filters and other editing options within the app but they’ve been reported to be less than stellar in comparison to Instagram.
This is a great app for people who really just take and upload photos to Facebook using their iPhone and are mostly focused on viewing photos (without the clutter of other newsfeed items).
Oh, and it’s a free download.
Without Facebook, there would be no news companies…
A lot of people don’t know that Facebook allows you to download an archive of all the information that is related to you. Recently they’ve made some more information available for you to download in the archived format.
Check it out and download the information if you’re interested.
Do you use Instagram? Are worried about Facebook’s acquisition of Instagram?
If you answered yes to both those questions, Instaport is a tool you’ll want to at least read about.
It’s possible that Facebook will add a “hate” button. Though I think it’s more likely they’ll add a “dislike” button similar to the one found on YouTube.
This is really a case of don’t ask, don’t tell. Employers shouldn’t ask and prospective and current employees shouldn’t tell. Our government is still wrapping their heads around social networking/media, but it looks as though our senate is pushing a bill that will help protect job applicants from even being asked to provide potential employers with passwords to their social networking accounts.
Facebook was founded on February 4, 2004.
NYT reports that FB will file for a $5 billion IPO tomorrow (Wednesday).
