Facebook Search trembles in the wings

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, practically announced that Facebook would have a search engine during the TechCrunch Disrupt conference in San Francisco. He also said that the last two years the company had wasted time building cross-platform mobile apps based on HTML5 rather than snappier, smoother native apps. He believes that more people will be using mobile than desktop applications, and is moving forward with that huge priority. They now have a native iPhone app that is based on code contributions to apps. He said he basically lives on his mobile phone himself.

Location no?

Monday, August 30th, 2010

Not everyone is embracing location based services, according to an article in Sunday’s New York Times.

Matt Galligan, CEO of SimpleGeo, a location technology company that sells technology to companies who build apps, said that sharing location becomes a simple cost-benefit analysis for most people. So for them there must be some kind of incentive to share specific information, like for shoppers receiving points or coupons.

Location services are catching on more quickly with young people, who have grown up posting personal information online, according to the article. “The magic age is people born after 1981,” said Mr. Altman of Loopt. “That’s the cut-off for us where we see a big change in privacy settings and user acceptance.”

According to Forrester Research, only 4 percent of Americans have tried location based services and 1 percent use them weekly. These statistics show that men comprise 80 percent of those users, with 70 percent between the ages of 19 and 35.
