This Is How Facebook And Google Controls You

October 12, 2011 2 comments

Google and facebook  are the two legends of the internet that no one will ever challenge to.. clearly now some people can’t even live without these websites. and everyone know that these website do bring some value into your lives.. but what u don’t realize is  how these websites control your life.. its not just about googe and facebook.. many  other major websites like yahoo,msn, twitter,bing  are doing the same thing.

 

few of years ago these websites were controlled by human editors who managed them according to our needs.. but now it has been taken over by algorithms which only shows us only what we want.. which they decide according to our likes  interests.. and because of this we miss out many things we needs to know.. just imagine when you type a name of a country into google to find about a breaking news and first link you come up with is about justin biber. that has happen to me many times.  and i agree that sometimes its good that these websites gives us many interesting things according to our interests.. but sometimes we miss out many important things we need to know just because of that.

In the following video it has been clearly explained by Eli Pariser  (the former Executive Director of MoveOn.org) honestly even I didn’t realise about  this truth  until i watch this video. so i decided to share it here so many people can know about it.

This video clip has been adapted from the conference held in long beach california, february 2011

Facebook At War Against Google+

September 24, 2011 Leave a comment


facebook seems to be battling hard to keep their throne as the worlds no1 social network while the new born Google+ opens to public users..

few days ago mark zuckerberg the CEO of facebook social network made  another huge changes to their facebook interface without even considering about the complains of most of  the users made about their previous changes . most of the facebook users are not very happy with all these new changes. some users are already leaving the site and searching for alternative’s.

its clear that with the release of  google+ , facebook wanted to make some changes to keep their users stick to their site.. but seems like facebook has failed their attempt. and now most of the users are switching to the newly born google+ website.  All the people are attracted to it because of the user friendly simple interface.

facebook has been adapting most of the google+ features while it was in the development. IE – video chat feature,  new friends listing, privacy changes to user post’s, subscription feature  are  some of those features . so now facebook has most of the feature’s of  google+. but the only difference is things are so much simple and user friendly in google+ while facebook is filled with so much features. most users are starting to compare facebook to myspace. and without any doubt they will be making some more changes to facebook very soon.  sooner or later  facebook will become the other myspace, if they don’t act on this situation and reverse these changes to make facebook more user friendly.

 

 facebook has been competing very hard to make a challenge to their new rival Google+ clearly they must have been taking precautions because the rival Company Google is already a Legend on the Internet.  but In conclusion our best guess would be that facebook will be losing lots of their users in the future just because of their recent feature updates.
