If you’re mistrustful of the things coming across your web browser each day, you may be a cyber skeptic. A delve into cyber skepticism –the good, bad and ugly.

Social networking has done many things. It has opened up a more direct form of communication that lets us meet others who are large distances away. It has also provided a place for people to connect based on interests, passions or lifestyle. It has increased the amount of time we spend online and through mobile devices, we are now constantly connected. It has also created a bit of a gap when it comes to reality.

The fourth amendment of the U.S constitution protects citizens against unreasonable searches and seizure. The famous Roy Olmstead case of 1928 used this amendment in its defense when Olmstead was charged with a crime using evidence collected from phone tapping. Although the Supreme Court denied the defense, it gave way to a heated privacy debate that continues today.

The Facebook gaming platform is going through changes to compete with other platforms. Kabam, a major social gaming company, recently shared with VentureBeat that only 30% of its revenue is coming from Facebook. Similarly, many other leading Facebook game developers have migrated to other platforms, including iOS and Android, in the last six months or so. Some think Facebook is losing its grip while other think it’s just an evolution phase.

Facebook and other social networks are finding it hard to fight off increased mobile usage and some pundits are even suggesting that social networks are dying. Based on stats, however, social media platforms do not seem to be going anywhere. For instance, we have reports on the increase in the number of social media users and even tweets on Twitter; we also have reports that clearly indicate an ever-increasing population on Facebook. We know for sure that 15% of adults on the internet use Twitter, and the number is even higher for Facebook. So how could social networks possibly die?

Back in 2004 when Google went public, Microsoft felt the sting of a younger competitor. Now Google itself is feeling that sting, facing competition from Facebook. Among the social network’s efforts to lure users from Google, Facebook is now pushing it’s @facebook.com email platform (a major play against Gmail, if you ask me). I noticed today, a quietly rolled out Facebook feature which lets Facebook users forward their Facebook messages.

Weesh: App for Couples

Be it food, health, travel, or lifestyle; you will find a mobile app for just about anything. But what you won’t so easily find is an app for couples. We’ve written about Pair in the past, a one-to-one networking app for couples, but other than Pair, there aren’t many other app options that let couples remain in touch and document their special moments. What’s more, the couple apps out there don’t address one key relationship pain point: how to spend your quality time together. With this in mind, the development team at JustUs created Weesh, a mobile app for couples that lets the couple create a “Weesh” list for activities they’d like to experience with one another. Like Pair, the app lets couples share precious moments through their phones; however, the app is specifically geared toward planning dates together, including activity suggestions.
