Wall Street Journal reported earlier this week that Facebook trying to buy a company with $0 revenue would be a massive mistake for Facebook. The question is why would Google or Facebook shell out so much money for a service that doesn’t have any revenue, never mind profits?
Facebook’s biggest problems are decreasing interest among young users, massive transition to mobile slowing growth. Acquiring Snapchat, which is growing exponentially would only mean getting back the last bits and hitting new milestones in terms of mobile users.
Any which ways we see these Giants competing each other to bring the youth to use their services to increase revenue. In this rat race do you think investing dollars like those make sense?
So, the rumours proved correct, Facebook today officially announced Video for Instagram, now available on Android and iOS. Just like the rumours were going on and on about this week, Instagram has in fact received a new feature allowing users to share short video clips.
Facebook’s announcement of that they will be unveiling a “big idea” this Thursday has brought along a lot of speculation as to what big blue has planned for us, some have suggested that they will be unveiling a Google Reader replacement while today news has started spreading, supposedly from insiders, that the company is bringing video sharing to Instagram, making it more competitive with Twitter’s more popular Vine.
Facebook has been quite as of late, at least ever since the HTC First was discontinued due to lack of interest. Now Facebook is ready to show off their next “big idea” that a “small team” has been working on.
The ever so unique HTC First seems to be struggling to sell. Originally priced at $99 on a two year contract from AT&T, the device has had it’s price cut drastically after what appears to be awful sales.
Facebook Messenger for iOS has gotten a lot of attention after Facebook revealed VoIP calling on the platform and subsequently gave iOS users in the US, Canada as well as the UK a taste, well, now Android users too can get a taste of Facebook’s free calling.
The HTC First has barely been announced and it’s already making headlines again, it seems the supposed ‘Facebook phone’ is a midrange dream as it turns out the device is actually the harbinger of stock Android to those who love HTC, but hate Sense.
Yesterday’s launch of the HTC First, a so-called Facebook phone, had mixed reactions and to cater for everyone’s needs, it seems like HTC a variant of the device without all of the Facebook faff.
Facebook’s mystery event unveiled quite a bit. Facebook today introduced Facebook Home to the world, calling it ” a new way to turn your Android phone into a great, living, social phone.”
Facebook is set to announce its own adapted version of Android tomorrow with its UI update called Facebook Home, together with that a set of devices may launch including an offering from HTC called the HTC First.
