Facebook’s mobile messaging service, WhatsApp has touched 1 billion in its user statistics.
Of all the cool new terms that joined the English lexicon in the aftermath of the social media revolution, nothing is so underrated, and yet so well known as Facebook’s News Feed. Although it instigated a bit of controversy and opposition when it was first introduced, today it has become an almost Google-like presence in our daily lives.
Facebook is coming out with something new. Right on the heels of bringing forth a great change to its “Like” button, Facebook is back in the news with another introduction: the Live feature. With this new feature comes the ability to live stream a video across Facebook which can be seen by all your friends.
Of all the things that Facebook’s billion+ users have been requesting, arguing, clamouring and signing petitions for, nothing is more prevalent and has gained more support than their cries to include a “Dislike’ button. And to a point, it’s with good reason. If, for example, a friend was to post something tragic on their wall, “liking” it doesn’t really seem like an appropriate response.
Last year, Facebook’s live streaming was allowed only for popular faces but this has drastically changed now. Anyone with an iPhone can broadcast live videos through Facebook’s new live streaming feature.
Though this feature is implemented for US iPhone users currently, Facebook live streaming is expected to reach the rest of the world within a short while.

Today hashtags are used almost everywhere! To those who need a clearer idea of what hashtags are and how they work; Hashtags are words or phrases with the hash symbol (#) in front of them. E.g.: #ThrowbackThursday. The hash symbol creates a link and clicking on that Hashtag will bring up other posts with that tag.
