Dear readers, hoping your good health, I am sharing my latest information that youtube has launched Uptime, an app that lets you watch videos together with your friends. The app is initially available only for iOS devices, and it feels very different from the standard YouTube experience.The app was initially spotted by The Verge, which notes that it works best for vertical videos.You can search and share video clips from YouTube to the app to Uptime, making it discoverable by others. A checkbox lets you also notify your friends on the service when you post. Right now, you may not have too many friends using the app, and there isn’t an address book sync feature or ability to import from other social networks — you can only send invites to friends.While watching a video, your profile icon floats across the screen, and you can comment on the video or post emoji like the smiley face, surprised face, heart eyes, angry face, etc. These reactions will be displayed to anyone who watches the video, even if they’re watching at a later time. However, you also can tap on the screen to leave “sparkles” on the video itself, and these are only shown to those you’re watching with in real time.
It also doesn’t support live streaming, but this and other features could be added if its creators continue its development and experiment with different types of content.
Uptime is currently in invite-only mode, but the invite code “pizza” gets you in.
Hope it will be of some use.
Hello dear readers, hoping good for your health,
Last month a 6000 pages manifesto was introduced by MarK Zukerberg (Facebook CEO) facebook manifesto 6000 pages he had for the social network in the days ahead — including one where its users became more “civically-engaged” and voted more often. Now it seems Facebook has taken its first steps toward making that possible, through a new feature it’s calling “Town Hall.” Five main questions are being putup which are as under
- How do we help people build supportive communities that strengthen traditional institutions in a world where membership in these institutions is declining?
- How do we help people build a safe community that prevents harm, helps during crises and rebuilds afterwards in a world where anyone across the world can affect us?
- How do we help people build an informed community that exposes us to new ideas and builds common understanding in a world where every person has a voice?
- How do we help people build a civically-engaged community in a world where participation in voting sometimes includes less than half our population?
- How do we help people build an inclusive community that reflects our collective values and common humanity from local to global levels, spanning cultures, nations and regions in a world with few examples of global communities?
these questions have been elaborately discussed in the manifesto. This latest addition has just popped up on the “More” menu in Facebook’s mobile app, and offers a simple way for users to find and connect with their government representatives on a local, state and federal level.To use Town Hall, you only have to enter your address — which Facebook says is not displayed or shared (though it doesn’t say it’s not “saved,” so be advised). On Representative’s Page, you may be able to dig around to find a phone number or mailing address, if it happens to be published.
“Town Hall is part of our ongoing work to support civic engagement on Election Day and every day. It is a dedicated space for people who want to learn about and participate in the political process.”
The feature’s arrival follows several other recent additions to Facebook’s sidebar in recent months, including its new City Guides, Wi-Fi Finder, Discover People section and Weather guide.
Hello my reader folks, hope your health wellness,
Security is the major concern of all the folks using laptops and desktops whatever version is used by them. In this writing I am sharing my knowledge about some of the firewalls which are available free on the internet.The web may be free, but we all know that to safely bank online, buy music, software, or books, or even simply surf the web, there is a price to pay. To combat online threats, firewall, anti-virus and anti-spyware software have become essential investments for any home or business computer. These programs monitor and control system access and scan and remove your system of malicious or spying software. Some of them which I found useful are here as under:-
- Zone Alarm (zonealarm) – A freeware which is Antivirus along with the firewall and is useful in stopping attacks from outside and leakage from inside.It is helpful in anti phishing. It works compatibly with windows defender but other antivirus and anti-malwares do not fits good with this zone alarm software.
- COMODO (comodo) It is an antivirus which is for sure not available free, but firewall of comodo is freebie and can be used for better personal computers safety.it blocks attacks from outside, and it has a malware detector that’s better than some antivirus systems
- Private Firewall (Privacyware) It provides tabs of info you go through to specify programs getting permission to talk to the outside, with plenty of explanation for end users about what’s happening.a proactive, multi-layered defense solution for Windows desktops and servers.
- Tinywall (Tinywall) it’ll block almost all communication until you whitelist the programs you need.Designed as an enhancement, not a replacement, for your existing Windows built-in firewall, the small TinyWall does everything it needs to harden your PC against attacks.
Hope this may prove useful
