Facebook Inbox access for 1$

Facebook has come up with a new idea that anyone can send a message to Someone’s Inbox even if you are not connected with him i.e. even if he is not in your friends list.

A new revamp of Facebook Messages is pointing the way to let people buy access to your inbox on the social network.

In a “small experiment” starting today, Facebook said it’ll be evaluating the “usefulness of economic signals” to determine what messages, from those with whom they have no connection, might be relevant to a given user.

Blade server- The server Technology

Everyone of us know that when we want to search for any query we will type the same in the GOOGLE search engine and wait for the results….we get very frustrated even if the time taken to show us the result is more than 3-4 seconds….

But the server has to go through many number of algorithms to compute the result….it has to compute more than billions of calculations in a second, so the characteristics of the server effects our search result….

DELL has come up with a new server technology called BLADE SERVER….Let us know what this technology is about….

WHAT IS BLADE SERVER

A blade server is a stripped down server computer with a modular design optimized to minimize the use of physical space and energy. Whereas a standard rack-mount server can function with (at least) a power cord and network cable, blade servers have many components removed to save space, minimize power consumption and other considerations, while still having all the functional components to be considered a computer. A blade enclosure, which can hold multiple blade servers, provides services such as power, cooling, networking, various interconnects and management. Together, blades and the blade enclosure form the blade system. (Different blade providers have differing principles regarding what to include in the blade itself, and in the blade system altogether.)

As we have seen in the previous article about GOOGLE PLUS which includes group video chat….now facebook has also introduced video chat in it….but not allowed in groups….

Mark Zuckerberg dismissed obvious comparisons with the video service included in Google’s new social network.

Facebook has revamped its popular chat feature by adding free video calling that can be launched inside the social network’s website. What was most striking about the launch event, held in Palo Alto, was how much CEO Mark Zuckerberg tried to distance his company from those seeking to slow its momentum, Google in particular.

The video-calling service is provided in partnership with Skype, which recently agreed to be sold to Microsoft, a Facebook partner and investor. Skype already provides Internet phone and video services, but users need to install a sizable program, and can only make video calls to other Skype members. With the new service, Facebook members can click on a “call” button on a friend’s profile page or in a chat window and connect, after installing a small software plug-in. 

“It’s a total natural for them,” says Greg Sterling, founding principal of market research company Sterling Market Intelligence. “A lot of people will use it.”

At the same time, the launch, which included a new group text chat feature and an easy-to-access chat buddy list, appears to expose Facebook’s increasing trepidation about Google. Last week, the search giant introduced a preliminary version of its Google+ social network. The new service, yet to be rolled out widely, has garnered considerable positive reaction from early users, though it remains to be seen whether it will take off once it’s released more widely. “Now it really looks like Facebook is nervous about Google,” says Danny Sullivan, editor in chief of the website Search Engine Land.

Among Google+’s features, in particular, is a group video chat service called Hangouts. Facebook’s Skype service is strictly one-to-one calling, which Skype CEO Tony Bates implied make up the vast majority of video calls. But group video calls are also something Skype charges money for, and Zuckerberg brushed away questions on when group video chat might come to Facebook.

For his part, Zuckerberg portrayed the Skype video calling feature as a harbinger of a new era in social networking. The next five years, he contends, will go beyond the sheer numbers of people connecting on social networks. Indeed, he downplayed user counts, despite the fact that he said Facebook now has 750 million active users, the first time the company has officially announced a new active-user count since last year, when it said there were more than 500 million.

 

Zuckerberg also suggested that Facebook is years ahead of other companies looking to create social networks of various kinds. Asked what he thinks of Google+’s Circles features, which allows people to drop their various kinds of friends, colleagues, and acquaintances into specific buckets with which they can then share specific posts or other material, Zuckerberg declined to talk about Google. But in an implicit dismissal of Circles, he noted that Facebook’s research indicated that “people don’t want to take a lot of time to add people to groups.”

The day’s announcements, coupled with the thinly veiled references to Google, indicated to several observers at the event that Facebook views Google as a serious competitor. “The polarization between Google and Facebook continues to gain strength,” says Gartner’s Valdes.

Google has started a new project on social network site. It is going to arrive with latest real time environment. Real time sharing, rethought of the web are the main motto of the Google+ project.
The modern world; the humans main theme is to connect with everyone. We want to be with everyone on every day; cheering, chilling & commenting on the things .we want to be as if in one place.

You may be wondering by seeing the black strip on the Google site. Making you vision right on to it, when you are on to the main page. It is an indication of something new is to make a Google even big. The thing is that Google+. It has a wide features like circles, hangouts, sparks, instant uploads, huddles.

The circles are meant for, if are going to share the things on the network, you may not be intended to share with the all the contacts. You share different things with different people. So sharing the right stuff with the right people shouldn’t be a hassle. You may circle your friends to one circle, your relatives to another, you boss to other circle. Your sharing of things will be particular to only the people you are intended.

It’s through Circles that users select and organize contacts into groups for optimal sharing. I know, It may just ,not more group management. But the truth is that Google has made the process as pleasant as possible. You simply select people from a list of recommended contacts (populated from your Gmail and/or Google Contacts) and drag them into Circles you designate. The user interface for all of this is simple and intuitive — it’s so good, that you might even say it’s kind of fun. It beats the pants off of the method for creating a group within Face book.

Think of the hangouts that usually we do like a meeting in a pub, restaurant. We usually make signals when you enter the place. This is  pretty simple as that. The current messaging or chatting is done as if the friends are pinged who are in online. We are unable to know really they are not interested or not there currently.  By combining the casual meet up with live multi-person video, Hangouts lets you stop by when you’re free, and spend time with your Circles. Face-to-face-to-face.

+Mobile, the perfect sharing device of modern world. U can share what around u without any hustle. With every message u can add the place where you are right now(if you are interested).

With the instant uploads you can share the photos, videos from your mobile. This is pretty easier by using this instant uploads. With Instant Upload, your photos and videos upload themselves automatically, to a private album on Google+. Now the job of you is to select to whom it is to be shared. With your permission the photos and videos will upload to the cloud on the Google+, and let you to share the things to your other intended buddies.

Let the sparks know what you are into, it will sends the stuff that may like. When the time is to be killed properly, the sparks works better. You can watch, read and share the articles what you are into.
Sparks, the online sharing engine.  Sparks delivers a feed of highly contagious content from across the Internet. On any topic you want, in over 40 languages. Simply add your interests, and you’ll always have something to watch, read and share—with just the right circle of friends:

Huddle is the place where a group of people chat together. It is same as a group chat. Everyone gets the same page all at once.
In the busy world, our plans may change at any moment or a minute. a group messaging experience that lets everyone inside the circle know what’s going on, right this second.
