As expected, Facebook has announced it’s going to roll out a new messaging system; an email/SMS/chat/ hybrid. But the founder and CEO of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg says it’s not an email killer, but a “modern messaging system” that brings together text messaging, chat and Facebook messages and he doesn’t expect users to ditch their traditional email systems.
The new messaging system will include an “@facebook.com” email address. As it is based on instant messaging rather than the more “formal” email, then if you’re online and logged into Facebook, messages will immediately show up in chat, while if you’re mobile, messages will move to your phone.
The system will use friend lists to prioritise your messages. Another folder will house less personal messages such as newsletters or bills, while a third folder will essentially act as a junk mail folder. Users will be able to add people to Facebook messaging even if they aren’t signed up to the site, and demote Facebook friends to a lower ranked folder if they don’t really want to see their messages.
Users won’t necessarily need a Facebook email account to use the system. The new messaging system will roll out over the next few months, on an invite-only basis to start with.

Tired of seeing mind numbingly meaningless updates on Facebook and Twitter by people you barely know? Well, you could cut your friends list down by two thirds, or……. just join Path!
Path is a new ‘Personal Network’ which only allows you to add a maximum of 50 friends to your network. This means that you will only have your nearest and dearest seeing what you are up to. The number 50 was decided on because on Oxford Professor claims that 150 is the maximum number of social relationships a human can cope with.
What is Path? Well according to Mashable, “it is a suite of applications (starting today with the iPhone) focused on intimate photo sharing. All you do is share pictures and three pieces of information to give them context: people, places and things”.

I have been discussing recently that if there’s any company that can challenge Google’s supremacy over the web, it’s Facebook. Well, the critics of this opinion might get some answers now as Facebook is possibly looking to kill Gmail with its secret Project Titan. Rumours are rife that Facebook is going to not only revamp its messages feature, but will also launch a complete web based email client with a personal @facebook.com email address for its users.

The latest release from Apple is ‘Ping’: “a social network for music”.
Yes you’ll be glad to hear it’s not another iPhone 4 post. This time it’s someting that we can more or less all enjoy. It’s a bit like iTunes, but with the added juicy-ness of the celebrity twitter world. You will now be able to follow your favourite artists and see what music they’re listening to, whilst also keeping up to date with your friends. (more…)

While attending a music festival or a football match at Wembley, you must have noticed that it’s almost impossible to get a connection on a mobile network. This problem reveals the present hurdles in the modern communication as networks are not strong enough to cater to a crowd of nearly a hundred thousand. While companies are trying their utmost to resolve this issue with advanced hardware, the desire to find alternate solutions is getting stronger.
The problem of having a big crowd can turn out to be a blessing with the new system, which allows members of the public carrying wearable sensors to form the backbone of new mobile Internet networks, being developed by researchers at Queen’s University Belfast. (more…)

I always wondered why can’t we have P2P connection through Wi-Fi as I really wanted to connect my laptop with my phone or with my brother’s phone. Though Bluetooth has been around for years now, its range is limiting especially if you’re working in your garage and want to access something on your laptop from your phone. Finally, Wi-Fi Alliance listened to the demand of my heart and has introduced Wi-Fi Direct and have started certifying several new laptop components. As many of you might be wondering its possible uses, I believe the possibilities are endless. (more…)

When we saw Facebook giving an option to use your Skype account to search for your friends and Skype doing a similar thing, we were anticipating a deal between the two big companies (one the biggest social network and the other the biggest communication network with a combined user-base of a billion users). Well it’s finally here with the launch of Skype 5.0 desktop client that features integration with Facebook and video conference calling for up to 10 people for free (at least for now). (more…)

Opera might have lost some market share in the PC browser market but it is by far the most popular browser for Mobile Phones. The Opera Mini became an instant hit when Apple approved it for the iPhone. It has been available for Android too but I personally love Opera Mobile on my Nokia. Good news for the Android fans too as the Norwegian company is bringing its full-flavoured mobile browser, Opera Mobile, to Android some time very soon. (more…)
