The world of social networks gives us unlimited opportunities for communication, discovers more and more new ideas. As it turned out, this world is a great helper in business and in search of relevant and useful information.

A million links is shared on Facebook every 20 minutes, 4 out of 5 companies use social networks to find employees, one third of bloggers regularly publish their opinions about famous trademarks and brands. Less than during a year, Facebook has collected more than 200 million users, in spite of television, which needed much more time to bring together millions of people. If today Facebook announced the creation of a new country, it would be the second largest country in the world after China.
Today Facebook adds new ways to display photo albums, creates video editing tool to combine photos, develops a new app with face recognition and adds musical themes. Now you can also edit the image using various filters, add stickers. As stated by Mark Zuckerberg, in future Facebook will have a telepathy feature. Using special technology, we will transfer our thoughts to each other. Virtual reality, new communication technologies!
"Our lives improve as our communication tools get better in many ways. We can build richer relationships with the people we love and care about. We know about what's going on in the world and can make better decisions in our jobs and lives," he said. Read not only messages, but thoughts. We will have the power to share our full sensory and emotional experience with people whenever we would like.
There is also a fabulous Carousel feature for mobile devices. This format supports up to 5 images and links that are scrolled horizontally, and are available both for usual advertising and for advertising applications. Now Carousel-style video floating player on iOS is being tested.
Is there anything that Facebook did not come up with? Facebook has added Donate Now button, which allows all users to donate a certain amount of money to charity organizations. The technology will be used by companies that are not Facebook partners. By clicking on the Donate Now button, the user can select the desired amount, submit his payment information (of the e-payment system or credit card) and transfer funds. You can also quickly share this post with your friends on social networks. According to the developers' idea it will significantly increase the number of donations. Now the charity organizations, such as the ALS Association, can request a donation using the button http://www.alsa.org/fight-als/ice-bucket-challenge.html.
This prompted our team of developers to create the Donations plugin, which is scheduled for the end of October! We hope it will be useful for you! Read all the latest and interesting news on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and also on our website.
