Facebook has deleted over 1.5 billion fake accounts just this year

In the period between April and September of this year, Facebook has terminated some 1.5 billion fake accounts from its network and deleted 2.1 billion pieces of spam.
Facebook shared the staggering number in its Community Standards Report. The report breaks down how Facebook has dealt with issues like adult nudity, hate speech, terrorist propaganda, violent and graphic content and fake accounts.

According to Facebook many fake accounts are the direct result of cyber attacks.
The social network has gotten much better at recognizing and preventing violating content even before people on the network have seen and reported it. According to Facebook's report some 95.9% of the violating content was dealt with before it was reported.
Facebook is under constant scrutiny concerning the so called fake news propaganda. It also came under fire for a recent security breach, which affected 50 million accounts.
Turn any photo into a WhatsApp sticker with this free Android app

Turn any photo into a WhatsApp sticker with this free Android app


WhatsApp finally introduced stickers on its platform only last month, and offered a bunch of sticker packs that were previously available on Facebook Messenger. But if you’re on Android, you can easily create your own stickers right on your phone.

That’s thanks to Sticker Studio, a free app built by Sven van der Zee, a former TNW Index development intern. You can snap photos or import images into it, and simply draw an outline around the portion you want to turn into a sticker.

There are a couple of odd restrictions to deal with, though: you’ll need to create at least three stickers before you can export a pack of them into WhatsApp. You’re limited to 10 sticker packs with a maximum of 30 stickers per pack.

Still, it’s plenty fun for folks who have colorful people in their lives. I’m in a bunch of group chats, and I found the app useful for clipping a meme-worthy picture of myself gritting my teeth in terror as I went down a steep slide in a salt mine (I’m not great with heights).

That’s about all you can do right now; Sticker Studio could use a bit more polish, and currently doesn’t allow you to resize images or add effects – but those features are in the works. And hey, it’s a lot easier than clipping images on your desktop and building an app just to share stickers.

Give it a go by grabbing the free app from Google Play.

Facebook Launches New, Simplified Version of Messenger to Make Chatting Much Easier

Facebook Launches New, Simplified Version of Messenger to Make Chatting Much Easier

The social media giant, Facebook has announced Messenger 4 globally to all compatible devices, Facebook announced in a press statement. The new Messenger app promises a more simplified experience focusing on the most important features that consumers often use.

Messenger 4, as Facebook is calling it, will refocus on conversations. To make it easier to find the features you care about, the new Messenger will have three tabs instead of nine. Your conversations — both one-to-one and groups — are front and center in the Chats tab. For hundreds of millions of people every day who share pictures and videos, Messenger 4 will have visual communication features like Camera at the top so you can easily capture and share your selfies.

Once you tap into Messenger 4’s People tab, you can find friends, catch up on people’s Stories, and see everyone who is active right now. Then you have the Discover tab, where you can connect with businesses to get the latest deals, play Instant Games, book your next vacation, follow the news and more.

Conversations with people can be express using custom nicknames, emojis and chat colors. With color gradient, multiple colors can be used for chat bubbles, and the colors will change as you scroll up and down a conversation.

According to Facebook, the new Messenger app will roll out to customers "over the coming weeks" so not everyone will have access to the refreshed design right away.

In the near feature, Facebook also plans to roll out a Dark Mode, a re-skinned interface that cuts down on the glare from your phone. 
Google Assistant gets a new look on mobile, adds touch to the reply cards

Google Assistant gets a new look on mobile, adds touch to the reply cards

Google Assistant is getting a new interface on Android devices that will make it easier to get things done and cut the number of steps as well. Google has announced that it will add touch-interactive elements to replies within Google Assistant for better and quicker interactions with your phone.

New Overview look
For example, when you ask Google Assistant to dim your lights, it will now show you the relevant slider and will let you adjust the dimmer right from the Google Assistant screen. Ask it to show you photos of something, and you'll get more than just a link with previews - the new update would let you scroll through a gallery of Photos rather than direct you to an image search result.
    

Google's new updates includes:

  • Bigger visuals that are easier to glance at
  • New controls and sliders to manage your smart home devices. Use dials to adjust lights, or sliders to adjust volume of your home speaker.
  • Interactive messaging interface so you can touch to edit a voice-dictated message you're composing with Assistant
  • On Android, open Google Assistant and swipe up to see your Overview feed
  • Developers now have tools to use the device's touch screen within Assistant. Starbucks has thumbnails of its menu, Food Network has larger images in recipes, and FitStar shows workouts with GIFs.



It's nice to be able to talk to Google Assistant to get things done or looked up by voice. But there's always a time when touch is just quicker than talking and waiting for a reply. The blog post doesn't specifically say whether the update is rolling out or not, but we can assume it's now rolling out on iOS and Android over the coming days.
We don't see the update on our end just yet. Do you see a new Google Assistant look on your phone? Let us know what device and country you are commenting from.
The Windows10 October 2018 Update is Now Available

The Windows10 October 2018 Update is Now Available

Microsoft has announced that the Windows 10 October 2018 update is now available. The company made the announcement yesterday 2nd of October, at a small press event in New York, though it’s obviously no surprise that Microsoft decided to roll out the October update in the month that gave it its name.

The new update is the sixth major update to come to the OS, following the November Update, Anniversary Update, Creators Update, Fall Creators Update, and the April 2018 Update.

The latest version of Microsoft’s global operating system comes with loads of new features, including your phone app, a new snipping experience, a dark theme for File Explorer, a cloud-powered clipboard, and new web sign-in and fast sign-in.

The most interesting of these is probably the new “Your Phone” app, which allows you to text from your PC using an Android phone that also runs Microsoft’s mobile companion app. In later iterations, that app will also sync notifications to your desktop, but for now, that’s not an option. There also are tools for continuing your workflow as you switch from your phone to PC (or vice versa). These features work for iOS users, too.
As far as syncing between devices goes, it’s worth noting that the update also will allow you to share your clipboard between PCs.

Since everybody likes a dark mode these days, the Windows 10 File Explorer now also includes a dark theme. There’s also a revamped search experience, as well as a new screenshot tool.

While the release includes plenty of other tweaks, both in terms of functionality and design, the most anticipated feature, Sets, didn’t make it into this release. Sets are probably the biggest change to the overall Windows user experience since the release of Windows 10, so maybe it’s no surprise that Microsoft is trying to perfect this. And perfection takes a while.

The Windows 10 October 2018 Update will be rolling out through Windows Update next Tuesday. Until then it’s available through direct download. You might be lucky and be offered the update if you manually trigger Windows Update this week.
