Facebook Messenger is getting Dark Mode

It took them a while, but they have finally done it. Facebook has announced that part of its grand Messenger redesign project, which it dubs Messenger 4, will include adding an optional Dark Mode to the communicator. Hooray for not being blinded by the white background anymore! Sadly, FB decided not to share any other details on the mode, saying that they will, quote, ”be back with more soon”.One of the other changes in Messenger 4 will be putting some of its tabs into a single ”Discover” tab so that we can continue to ignore them. Goody. ...

Oh man. Facebook has been hacked again. That is so interesting

Do you think that you spend too much time on Facebook? Well now you can see exacly how much time that is. Time on Facebook is a new tool available in FB’s and Instagram’s settings (where it is called Time on Instagram, I assume). It will show us how much time have we spent on Zuckerberg’s life-consuming website during the past week. The catch is that it only shows time spent on the specific device you are using – you will have to check it specifically on your PC, smartphone etc.What do you think? Are you curious? Or would you rather not look some facts in the face? ...

Facebook and Instagram plan on banning all of their 13-years old or below users

Technically speaking, only people over the age of thirteen can create FB or Instagram profiles, but the thing is that nobody is really verifying their age – until now. Both services will now block profiles suspected of being owned by people younger than 13. In case of moderators being wrong, access to the profile will be returned upon showing the administration a proper identity card.We do not know how exacly will the verification process look like.

Vice-President of Facebook, Allen Lo has stated in an interview that the reason FB wants to patent its ...
