"Let's say," Zuckerberg told developers at Facebook's f8 conference Tuesday, "That your friend is testifying before Congress." Now, he said, you'll be able to bring your friends together, "laugh together, cry together," Zuckerberg said to laughs, adding that some of his friends "actually did this." Zuckerberg testified before Congress last month for about 10 hours over two days.
He was grilled about how Facebook protects users' data and other issues. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says the company is working on a feature that allows users to clear their browsing history from the site and prevent it from keeping tabs on link clicks going forward.
The need for additional equipment is one of the reasons virtual reality, or VR, has had limited appeal so far. The feature will be opt-in, meaning you have to choose to use it.
Zuckerberg is counting on the Oculus Go to widen the audience for VR, as Facebook tries to deploy the technology to reshape the way people interact and experience life, much as its social network already has done. Zuckerberg also stressed that the feature was built with privacy and security in mind from the start.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg poked a little fun at himself talking about a new feature called Watch Party, which lets Facebook users view videos together with their friends.And it’s a big step from curated and controlled video snippets to the freeform risk and rush of live video.Regardless, Badoo is diving in — so full marks for taking the plunge.Clearly Badoo will be hoping to achieve a much better ratio of quality conversation to animated phalli.) But even beyond the risk of moving dick pics, video chatting with strangers can just be straight up awkward for people to jump into — perhaps especially in a dating context, where singles are trying to make a good impression and won’t want to risk coming across badly if it means they lose out on a potential date.Sending an opening text to a dating match from a cold start can be tricky enough, without ramping up the pressure to impress by making ‘breaking the ice’ into a video call.
