Facebook – The #1 Social Media Service on a Worldwide Scale

Facebook started as an online directory of Harvard College students in 2004. As popularity grew, the site expanded to other colleges and Ivy League schools across the US. On September 26, 2006, Facebook allowed anyone to join the social media network. The only requirements were to have a valid email address and be at least 13 years old. Some countries, however, do not allow access to the service. Since the access was open to everyone, Facebook has grown to have 1.86 billion active users each month. It is due to this that Facebook has grown to be the third most popular website in the world, behind YouTube and Google Search. Facebook allows users to post status messages, images, video and links to friends and groups. Each piece of content you publish can be shared with one or more people. You can control who sees your updates The News Feed feature is the main staple of Facebook. This allows you to view content highlights from friends, groups and pages you follow. Algorithms determine what content shows in the feed, much to the frustration of users. Facebook later provided options to allow you to fine tune your personalized feed, by notifying what you want to see more or less of. Another popular element to Facebook is the Like button. It was extended to include several other expressive notions to content. Such options besides Like includes, but is not limited to, Love, Sad, Wow, and Haha (funny). While rumors spread often, Facebook is a free to use service. The rumors were exacerbated further when chain letter posts were shared by thousands of users. The company provides advertising services to businesses to monetize the free service. Effective targeting methods to Facebook users that are interested in the content is one such method. Other services include sending gifts, buying virtual currency for games, or the marketplace.

Free photo sharing app, Instagram, allows users to take and share photos and videos. Photos and videos saved to your profile can be shared for everyone to see, or privately with whom you choose. Instagram presents photos in a polaroid-like square shape. Once you snap your photo, you can then apply filters to stylize your photo further. You can choose from a range of filters or have no filter applied. Instagram adds new filters with some of the regular updates. Instagram users often tag their photos with 'hashtags' - a way to categorize photos. With 600+ million active users, hashtags allows easier access to your public content. Tapping on any hashtag takes you to the most recent and trending photos and videos for that category. A more recent introduction to Instagram is videos. Videos were limited to 15 seconds, but future updates increased this to 60 seconds. Multi-video posts allows up to 10 minutes of consecutive video to be shared. To compete with Snapchat, Instagram introduced Instagram Stories in August 2016. Instagram Stories allows you to share photos and videos in a stream. This media then disappears after 24 hours and are no longer accessible once expired. This is a lot like Snapchat's core functionality. Instagram was acquired by Facebook in April 2012 at a US$1 billion valuation. Since then, Instagram has continued to grow in popularity around the world as one of the must have apps. It often ranks within the top 10 rankings within the app stores around the world.

Chicken Scream
Action

Nothing can be more adorable than those cute little chickens but who would have thought that they can be part of one epic adventure! Chicken Scream is the newest mobile game craze today! It may not offer a hardcore gameplay or those visually striking details but this game is extremely unique and fascinating. The main objective for Chicken Scream is to help the chicken reach the other side by helping it jump from one platform to another or avoid all the deadly obstacles along the way. The tricky part however is the fact that the game has no virtual control pads and the only way to manipulate its movements is by screaming on your phone’s microphone. It’s crazy and it’s fun! This is how you can perfectly describe this funny little game. The mechanics are very simple and easily manageable and everyone can play! Chicken Scream is playable in two different modes; The Adventure and the Classic Campaign. The Adventure Mode is divided in four different mini games and each of them is played in an entirely different manner. The first game is the main campaign in which you guide the chicken over a series of obstacles and move the character by screaming or talking over the microphone. Talking or singing in neutral tone allows the chicken to walk while screaming allows it to jump over platforms or obstacles. The second mini game is entirely different, it requires player to help the chicken cross the other platform by transporting them through a special mechanism. The third mini game requires you to help the chicken evade all the incoming arrows while the last game is more like a crossover between a rhythm game and a memory game. The Classic Campaign on the other hand is an endless running side scrolling adventure where your goal is to get the highest score as possible by reaching the farthest distance. You are also encouraged to collect coins along the way and unlock new Chicken Skins from the shop!

TBH is the newest social networking app that offers an anonymous way for friends to interact. The name of the app comes from the famous social media trend “To be honest” where users provide feedbacks or comments about another user. This trendy way of letting a person know what other people think of him has been embraced by many adolescents across the globe and is one of the continuing social media crazes of the internet today. What this fresh app brings is a new flavor to this trend. By focusing on anonymity and ensuring a positive language in the questions made by the users, the TBH app hopes to provide positivity, promote social awareness, and build a community without undermining privacy and security of the users. The app works by allowing you to create and answer funny questions about your friends. Every time a friend picks your name, you get to earn gems which you can use to unlock and answer more questions. Using the app is simple. First, you need to grant it access to your contact list and location and pick the name of your college or high school. Then, TBH provides you recommendations for people to add coming from your contact list and the school you attended. Once you have added friends, you get to play a 10-question game which lets you pick one of the four friends listed as an answer to whimsical questions like who would you want to be stranded on an island, who would become the next president, and many other funny and quirky prompts. As a TBH user, you can also submit question ideas along with an emoji of your choice through the app. The TBH team screens submitted questions and once a question is approved, the user earns trophies for the submission. While the app is in its second month as of October 2017, it is now one of the top downloaded apps on iTunes with over 5 million users. This brought Facebook to purchase TBH from Midnights Lab LLC. The app is currently available only for iOS so you need an Apple device to use it.
