When you fire up a Facebook page, you have at least 5 ad blocks. I mean, this could go up to 9 ad blocks + sponsored stories and and …
But we all know it; we are starting to develop an Ad-blindness across the interwebs.
But guess what, apparently Facebook isn’t profitable enough via ads. Or so investors think.
Now if you want to send a message to someone you aren’t friends with, you either pay $1.00+, or your message gets filtered (sent to the Other Inbox no ones knows about). I was shocked. Especially that friending people now is more strict than ever.
Andy will take a position within the GoogleX project (read below).
The big question is,

Since its launch a few weeks ago, LiberTweet (the only app that integrates seamlessly with the Twitter web and Android clients to make longer tweets – and also, my new born baby) had gone through some major changes.
But the biggest update by far, is this one : now even if your followers don’t have the Android app/Chrome extension installed, they can still see your long tweets inside their twitter clients (Web, Android, iOS, Tweetdeck …) ! See the images below :
I was in Tunisia to give two workshops (UX design and Mobile HTML5) for the TNWebDays - live coding sessions, use cases and whatnot.
Basically, my laptop (Macbook Pro) was crucial for this mission.
But, like any machine that has got some self esteem, it crashed as I was about to wrap up the presentations. That crash is vastly known in the Apple community as “White screen of death“. And quickly recoverable by resetting the PRAM by pressing Command+Option+P+R. Continue reading “Do machines understand Humans ?!” »
