With the expansion of social networks, people are physically socialising less than ever. Even though this sounds weird, it’s a well known paradox. With the introduction of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, WhatsApp and other social networks, people don’t feel the need to catch up in person as they did in the days before the expansion of internet/smart phones.
Facebook
Chris Hughes, one of Facebook’s co-founders, has called for the social network to be broken up by regulators, arguing that Mark Zuckerberg’s “unchecked power” has created a monopoly and given him “unilateral control over speech”.
FB Messaging Platforms
At it's ongoing F8 annual developer conference, while the keynote opened with CEO Mark Zuckerberg stressing on a privacy-focused platform, there were a lot of new developments shared as far as all of Facebook’s products are concerned.Starting with Messenger, Facebook shared plans about integrating the chat app with Instagram and WhatsApp.
Earlier, Apple revoked Facebook's iOS enterprise developer certificate for violating its Terms of Service, and Apple is now giving the same treatment to Google. Apple has shut down Google's internal iOS apps for doing the exact same thing Facebook was doing—distributing enterprise apps outside of the company.
A new report highlights another shady Facebook policy that was paying people to install an app called the Facebook Research VPN. Facebook allegedly paid users to install the VPN, which allowed the company to collect all the user's phone and web activity at all times.
FB Messaging Platforms
Facebook currently owns and operates three messaging platforms that all run independently of each other - Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram. All three platforms feature their own respective messaging component; Instagram users, for instance, can't use the app to contact users on WhatsApp.
Twitter
Last month, Twitter announced the ability to switch between seeing top Tweets first or seeing the latest Tweets first. That said, the feature was initially rolled out to iOS first, promising Android users will get their turn soon.  The company has now turned on the feature for Android users.
Huawei
It happens time and time again, a smartphone maker tweets from a competitors device.  Occasionally it can be embarrassing, and a lot of the time a whole lot of fuss is made out of nothing.  However, Huawei's post to its official Twitter account on New Years Eve definitely came under the embarrassing category.
