Facebook App Now Has Stories and Camera Effects

After updating my Facebook application, i noticed a new feature as seen on Instagram and even on Messenger. Finally, Facebook has added Stories to its main application; after adding it to its Messenger app, Whatsapp and Instagram. Mark Zuckerberg tends to copy all SnapChat's features, and i don't think it's cool in any way.

You can now add Stories to Facebook mobile app that last for just 24hrs. Today the social network is announcing Facebook Stories. Yes, that's Snapchat Stories inside Facebook. They will be displayed like on Instagram, above your News Feed. And of course every photo and video you share in a Story disappears after 24 hours. By default content you put inside a Story only appears there. In order to make it show up on your Timeline or News Feed you'll need to post it there too. To add stuff to your Story, just tap on Your Story in the Stories bar.

On the left of that bar you'll see something called Direct. This lets you share individual photos and videos with specific friends only, and for a limited time. Sound familiar? Wait, there's more. The people you share such things with will be able to view them each once and replay or write a reply. The content is no longer visible once the conversation about it ends.

Additionally, camera effects are now a thing in Facebook too. Tapping the camera icon in the top left of the eponymous app for iOS or Android will give you a new in-app camera experience, very similar to the one that debuted in Facebook Messenger not long ago.

The camera is now packed with effects like masks, frames, and interactive filters (see the image above to get an idea about what to expect), all ready to be applied to your photos and videos. There are reactive effects which let you interact with dynamic objects in real time, and style effects that apply an artistic filter over your video in real time. Masks are available for many upcoming movies, thanks to the social network's brand partnerships.

How To Limit Facebook App Data Usage on Android and iOS Devices

Before now, we all know that Facebook mobile application is such a battery and data consumer. Though, Facebook has released its inbuilt Data saver feature which minimizes the amount of data used by the app. But that's not all; there are still settings you need to manually turn off. I will take you by hand as i show you what to do. Kindly follow me along.

How to Limit Facebook app Data Usage on Android

  1. You can adjust the app settings to save data:if you notice that your app is consuming too much data, the first thing you should consider is if you share a lot of pictures and videos with the app. Also, you might want to check if your app automatically plays videos. If it does, you need to turn it off. Tap on the menu button at the top right of the screen, then go to App Settings. There you will find options to Upload Photos in HD and Upload Videos in HD. Turn these off. Also, turn off Auto-play on the same page.
  2. Facebook for Android has a Data Saver mode which, as the name implies, saves data. It reduces image sizes and disables Auto-play for videos. You can access the Data Saver mode by tapping the menu button at the top right of the screen, then scrolling down to Data Saver. Turn this on, and it helps you limit Facebook app data usage. Note that this won’t really work unless you turn off Upload Photos/Videos in HD.
  3. Facebook recommends a third-party app to control your mobile data and protect your personal information. You can find the app by going to Settings, under Mobile Data. This redirects you to Google Play Store, where you install the app.
  4. Another option to consider is Facebook Lite. This is a slimmed-down version of the app. It is currently only available for Android, however.


How to Limit Facebook App Data Usage on iPhone

  1. You can limit Facebook app data usage through almost the same process as Android users. Just click on the menu button on the bottom right corner, go to Settings, then click on Account Settings. Then tap on Videos and Photos. Here, you can disable HD uploads for photos and videos, and turn off Auto-play.
  2. One more thing for iPhone users. Facebook for iOS devices automatically refreshes in the background. This consumes quite a lot of data, so you might want to disable it. Go to Settings, then click on General. Tap on Background App Refresh, then select Facebook to turn it off.
  3. The WiFi assist on the iPhone helps maintain a stable internet connection. When your WiFi network isn’t too good, WiFi assist connects with your mobile data plan and maintains the connection. This consumes data too. To turn it off, go to Settings, click on Mobile Data, then turn off WiFi assist. This would help limit Facebook app data usage and save you data.

Facebook Messenger Rolled Out Live Location Sharing Feature

I don't know if I'm the only one who noticed that Facebook loves copying features from its various competitors, only if Facebook finds that feature interesting enough. Anyway, Facebook set to roll out a new feature that will allow users of Messenger to share their Live location with their friends. This feature is powered by Google Map, and it's called Live Location Sharing.

This is similar to Whatsapp's Live location tracking. Facebook live location sharing lets you select the friend you choose to see your live location on a map hosted by Google for up to an hour. You can aswell share your live location with friends in a group or to just one single person, and can stop at any time. A small countdown clock will tell you how much longer you're sharing for.

Once you share your location, both you and the person or people you're sharing it with are able to see an estimate of how long it would take you to get to their location(s) by car.

If you want to share a static point on a map, and not your live location, you can still do that too - except, instead of choosing Share Live Location after you tap the location pin, just tap the red pin in the upper right hand corner. You're then able to search for a place, or drag and drop the pin on the map before you hit Send.

Moreover, the feature is currently rolling out globally to all Messenger users on both iOS and Android. You can equally be checking out your respective app stores for an update.

How To Factory Reset Your iPhone or iPad iOS Device

Factory resetting your device isn't a bad idea, as it will restore your device back to the state it was when you newly bought it. The downside of factory resetting is that, all your data, media files and saved information on the device will be permanently be deleted.

Why reset your iPhone or iPad?

There are various reasons why you will need to factory reset your iPhone or iPad. Reasons may be because you want to sell off the phone or because it has become slow in performance, and more other reasons like that.

Because a factory reset deletes all your files and information, it is recommended that you backup your iPhone or iPad data before wiping it. This article walks you through the whole process of backup and reset. The specific steps may differ a little bit from one version of iOS to another, so do not panic if one or two steps are missing on your device.

How to reset your iPhone or iPad

  1. Backup your device. Using its supplied cable, connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer. When it is recognised by iTunes, click on the left-hand pane to access the Summary screen. Click “Back Up Now” and follow through.
  2. Open your device’s Settings menu and follow this path: General -> Reset.
  3. Select Erase All Content and Settings. If you have a passcode on your device, you will be required to supply it at this point.
  4. Enter your Apple ID password.

After rebooting is complete, the phone will be in its factory state where you have to choose your language, set time and date and other on-screen instructions it may asked of you to set. After doing all that, you can now sell off the device without the fear of exposing your data and information to the new user, or you can aswell use the device in its clean new state.

Google Fixes Pixel Bluetooth Bug With Automatic Server-side Update

If you are a Google Pixel user, you would have noticed that the device's Bluetooth do turn off on its own after sometime, and when you do turn it on again, it will switch off again. Google has officially announced last month, February 2017, that they are also aware of the bug and had fixed it.

I'm happy to tell you Pixel user that Google has finally fixed the bug and that it will be rolled out to the device shortly. Google officially made it known to the public that it has finished putting the fix in place and that affected devices should be working properly now.

Moreover, there is no action required by the user, you don't need to perform a system update or anything. The bug has been fixed and installed automatically in all affected Pixel smartphones.

Google confirmed that it is a server-side update and it's likely that the fix was installed through Google Play Services update, which happens automatically in the background.

Any other Pixel devices affected by this should likely get fixed too. You can check again to confirm if the problem persists.

Real Truth About 08030004900 Number - Real or Fake?

There have been false rumor making wave in Nigeria about a strange number that is calling people and asking them to go jump inside Lagoon in Lagos as the easiest way to commit suicide. This has been trending on Social media platforms, most especially Whatsapp; including Facebook, Chatrooms, Twitter, Instagram, Telegram etc.

The said number is 08030004900. There have been stories that this same number was the number that called a Medical Doctor who was returning from church that made him jumped into the Lagoon from Third mainland bridge after he ordered his driver to pull over.


Below is the type of message that has been trending on Social media sites:
Gud evening ,i hope u guys ave heard dat d police saved anoda woman tryn to jump into d lagoon today..pls my sisters dis is d number calling dem..08030004900... i didnt really blive until a friend tld me d number called her nd started sayn sum enchantment and d nxt thing she heard waz tld to 08030004900 kill her self wit any possible means she has... d same number called her friends broda in skul nd if nt for her friend's broda roommate dat stop him.. he wud ave stabbed himself wit d knife in his hands.. so pls sisters lets pass dis information.. nd lets also b prayerful.. d was d same number dat called dat doctor dat jumped into d lagoon too... #TAKEHEED
Pls don't pick calls from d number
Two of my course mates were saved cos dey missed d call. pls spread the news


When i saw this, i laughed at how people can be easily misled. Someone woke up and started writing this nonsense and spreading on social media. Pls don't ever believe this fake story. It's not real at all.

Now here is my analysis of the said evil number:


  • The number 08030004900 is an MTN Nigeria telemarketing line used for promotions.
  • It's mtn short code. Instead of calling with 4900, they call with a longer normal looking number.
  • It is customized for marketing purposes only and as such cannot be called back.
  • MTN Nigeria uses the shortcode: 4900 for their callertunez promotion services. Full digits for 4900 is 0803 000 4900.
  • It's in no way related to the suicide at Lagos Lagoon.


Am not in any way promoting MTN's business number but I want to save the Nigerian populace from the panic and fear.

You Can Now Share Files and Documents Through Google Allo

Who still uses Google's smart messaging app Allo? There are still millions of people who still make use of Google Allo to chat with friends and colleagues; and i can tell you that Google hasn't forgotten about its chatting app and keeps releasing new updates once in a while.

According to rumors, Google set to add Stickers to Allo, but that isn't the main point here. The uplifting news now is that, Google has made it possible for users to Share files through Allo. Supported file formats are: .pdf, .doc, .apk, .zip, and .mp3. Isn't this a welcome development on Allo? Ofcourse it is. Though, Whatsapp already has this feature of Sharing files (PDF and TXT only) with contacts, but Facebook Messenger is yet to adopt this feature.

MUST READEasy Steps To Share and Send Files and Android Apk Apps On Whatsapp

I will quickly guide you on how you can send/share files and documents on Google Allo. It's very simple and needs no much explanation. Kindly follow me along.

HOW TO SHARE FILES AND DOCUMENTS ON GOOGLE ALLO

==> To share files on Allo, just use the new paper clip icon seen above, while you're in any Allo conversation.

==> Tapping that will take you to your device's file explorer, where you can select what you want to share. The odd thing is that you can't share Google Docs, Slides, and Sheets if you've saved them in their default format. So for now you need to either save those in Microsoft's formats, or just send people a link to the file on Google Drive.

And now let's dive into the sticker-adjacent news. Smart Smiley is rolling out in Brazilian Portuguese, so if you speak that language you will be able to take advantage of this feature that uses machine learning to help you find the right emoji faster.

Just tap the Smart Smiley icon on the compose bar and the app will instantly suggest relevant emojis and, yes, you guessed it, stickers. No new sticker packs this time around though.

Facebook Live Video Now Available on Desktop & Laptop Computers

After releasing Facebook Live Audio late 2016, Facebook also went ahead to introduce Facebook Live video that allows users to create a live stream right on their Android phone/Tablet. Before now, if you wanted to broadcast a live stream on Facebook using Live video, you can only do that on Facebook app for Android phone or a Tablet; and now, not anymore.

You can now create / broadcast a Live video on Facebook from your Desktop or Laptop computer. This announcement was officially made by Facebook few days ago. Facebook also added that such devices can offer a stable camera setup that can work wonders for certain content types - for example Q&As, vlogs, or tutorials.

HOW TO USE FACEBOOK LIVE VIDEO ON YOUR PC

This feature is already available for desktop/ laptop users. Both Android/Tablet and PC users are not left out. I will quickly guide you on how to create a live video on Facebook for PC.
