Facebook Stalking App

Using your phone to Facebook ‘friend’ a person you’ve just met is a frustrating experience –carefully spelling out names, looking through the photo list to find yourself, etc. Well, Facebook appeared to find a solution in the form a new app — Find Friends Nearby. An app that uses GPS to let you select from a list of nearby Facebook users. TechCrunch was tipped off this past weekend to the new app — initially known as “Friendshake”. The app had been quietly rolled out with no announcement. The app seemed like a useful tool for exchanging contact information with one or multiple people with minimal effort. So why did Facebook kill it only a few hours later?

Imagine a life without the Internet for 24 hours. Could this even happen? Yes and even if just for a single day, the prospect sounds terrifying. Imagine a day without email, Twitter, and Facebook. No Google to search for assignments or research, no You Tube to enjoy – in many ways, it seems synonymous with life halting for a day, doesn’t it?

On July 6-22, immerse yourself in NY_Hearts: LES, a virtual love story you can experience through an app.

Audio books are ‘in’ but imagine a whole new way of storytelling –with an app. An app through which you hear the real sounds and see the real sites of the narrative –as though you’re actually there!  That’s the idea behind the Moveable Feast app.  The app allows you to create and share “multimedia narratives.”  It can be a tour when you’re far off traveling, within which you can include images, videos, and text –all connected to GPS coordinates and a “virtual trail” that others will be able to follow using their iPhone or desktop.

Is social media as reliable as the mainstream media for news? It’s hard to say if news on social media can be trusted, but it is surely an effective complement to mainstream media.

It was a software consultant who first tweeted about the events leading up to Osama Bin Ladin’s capture and death. Sohaib Athar (@ReallyVirtual) tweeted that “extraordinary choppers” were in his area of Pakistan. He didn’t know at the time that it was a U.S. operation to capture Bin Ladin. Because of his tweets, several mainstream media outlets followed up on the story and found that Osama had been captured and was dead. Before long, the entire internet was abuzz with the Osama news gone viral.

Similarly, is the story of  Neda Soltan, an Iranian woman shot in broad daylight during one of the Iranian protests. A video of the travesty surfaced on the Internet, later spreading like wildfire via social media.
