Ted Livingston, the founder of instant messaging service Kik, is promoting an “anti-Facebook alliance” after declaring his annoyance over the company allegedly stealing his ideas. After Livingston announced his cryptocurrency “Kin,” Facebook also announced their own blockchain group, which Livingston took as an indication they were copying him again. “Anytime a big opportunity comes up, it will be copied by them,” declared Livingston. “Every time I’m like, ‘They won’t copy this,’ they do. Every time… They’ve been copying us for 10 years and the lesson we’ve learned is to set things up so when they do copy us, [the outcome] will be different.” Consequently, Wired reported that Livingston is now organizing an “anti-Facebook alliance” to take on the company, using the Kin cryptocurrency. “Each company that Facebook has copied has had to take on Facebook alone,” Livingston … [Read more...] about Masters of the Universe Backlash: Founder of Messaging Service Kik Creates ‘Anti-Facebook Alliance’
On a good day, Instagram is full of the sunniest of photos. On a bad day, it reeks of scandals. Today's one of those days, for Instagram is pressing against the creator of British anti-litter app Littergram to change its name on the ground of trademark infringement. Littergram promotes the cause of registering littering as an anti-social behavior (like drunk driving) by letting users snap photos of garbage and pollution, then report their location to their council.Founder Danny Lucas went on to register the brand in December 2015, but Instagram lawyers stepped in, saying that Insta appreciates the social objectives and respects Mr. Lucas's efforts, but the name needs to go away. They maintain that the brand's product "uses and relies on social media usage" in the same way as Instagram, and is therefore exploiting a similar-sounding and established trademark.Lucas uploaded a video containing a personal plea to Facebook founder and Instagram owner Mark Zuckerberg, in which he explained … [Read more...] about Anti-litter app Littergram does two things – social justice and infringing Instagram’s trademark

If you have a smartphone, there is a better than average chance you use Facebook. The company endures as the world’s most popular social network by a wide margin, and the majority of its users access Facebook using mobile.However, according to a report from the anti-virus software company, AVG, the Facebook app for Android placed a dubious first place on its ranking for overall performance impact.Perhaps not coincidentally, Instagram, wholly owned by Facebook, is also on AVG’s short list of apps that impacts overall performance of Android devices. Taken together as apps, Facebook and Instagram perform very well, but AVG measured that the cost of those apps is paid in reduced battery life, increased data use, and use larger amounts of device storage.Part of the reason for that is due to how long an app may have been installed on a device. The longer an app resides on a device, particularly social media applications, it may aggregate larger and larger blocks of data, then … [Read more...] about AVG: Facebook’s app for Android has the biggest impact on battery life, data usage, storage use
