With 2015 on the horizon, the major social networks are already looking into new features that they will be able to provide to their users in the coming year.
Friend-to-friend payments are not the only feature that has been discussed for Facebook’s future. Another feature that could be on the horizon for 2015 might be the long-requested ‘Dislike’ button. Another hurdle for Snapchat occurred when the Sony Pictures hack organized by North Korea led to a variety of Snapchat company secrets being exposed.
Though some of Snapchat’s recent announcements and information reveals have been reactionary, Snapchat has found plenty of other ways to upgrade their service in the past few months. Facebook and Microsoft have had a long-standing relationship, which for quite some time has led to Facebook including Bing results in the Facebook search bar. One of the reasons that Facebook worked with Bing in the first place was because it has long considered Google to be a rival, especially with Google’s mostly unsuccessful plunge into social network territory with Google Plus. It seems that Facebook wants to refocus their search functions to work within Facebook, rather than extending to the rest of the web.
Last month, Twitter released an update to their search function that allowed users to search for any tweet that had ever been posted, from Twitter’s launch to tweets being posted right now.
There are plenty of applications for this new feature that could benefit Facebook and even build it up as a competitor to Yelp or Google. Part of the social networking world often involves seeing a lot of information that we have no interest in or that flat out offends us. Facebook launched a new tool last month in their News Feed Settings, which shows friends and Pages that take up the most space in a user’s News Feed.
While Facebook is giving users options to reduce annoying posts, Twitter is currently seeking to reduce harassment and other more specific troubles. Facebook says it has patched a security hole related to a little-known phone number search within Facebook.
Last Friday, independent security researcher Suriya Prakesh published a blog post in which he claimed that a€?98 percent of your phone numbers [on Facebook] are not safe.a€? In the post, Prakesh demonstrated that a brute-force attack could be used to lookup sequential phone numbers on Facebook and match them with their respective user names.
But first, a little background: It seems as though not many people realize this, but if you know someonea€™s phone number you can usually easily look them up on Facebook. Let me explain, because (surprise, surprise) Facebook doesna€™t make that distinction very clear. When you add a phone number or an email address to your Facebook profile, you can choose whether it shows up to everyone, friends only, just yourself, or to a custom list of people. By default, this setting is set to allow everyone and anyone to search for your email address or phone number on Facebook to find your Facebook profile.
So what Prakesh discovered was that Facebooka€™s phone number lookup, coupled with peoplea€™s ignorance of how Facebook privacy works (or rather, doesna€™t work), could be exploited using a few choice pieces of code. Anyway, Facebook said Wednesday that it fixed thisa€“Prakesha€™s post now notes that he can no longer look up 10,000 phone numbers at a time. Facebooka€™s phone number and email address lookup feature has long been the stalkera€™s secret. Prakesha€™s exploit used sequential phone numbersa€“he didna€™t know the phone numbers of the people he was trying to find, he was just harvesting numbers.
The easiest solution is to not add your phone number or email address to your Facebook account. This is pretty easya€“and a lot of people do it, thinking it will make their information completely private.
After you make your email address and phone number private, you have to also make them unsearchable. Go to How You Connect > Edit Settings > Who can look you up using the email address or phone number you provided?

More than a year after it promised the post-search ability, the social network will roll it out for English language users in the United States. More than a year after promising to give users the ability to search for posts, Facebook is finally coming through. The company today announced an update to Facebook Search that will make it possible to find that thread congratulating you on your new job, the hilarious comment you made about Walking Dead last month or the selfie you took with the bride at your best friend’s wedding last year.
It’s what Facebook said has been the number one feature request since it rolled out Facebook Graph Search in January 2013, which killed the previous post searching ability.
In September 2013, Facebook said users would be able to find public posts even from people they didn’t follow. Facebook hasn’t released a timeframe for the release of the search update on the Android app. As said, before the launch of Facebook Graph Search, Facebook did allow for post searching.
However, users who type in a just few words will be presented search suggestions, based on what Facebook believes they will be interested in. Instead, Facebook learned from the Facebook Graph Search beta that people wanted a simple interface and especially to have post searching ability returned. As for local search and recommendations, Stocky said Facebook is now more focused on making that information available through discovery. Some opinions expressed in this article may be those of a guest author and not necessarily Search Engine Land.

SMX Advanced, the only conference designed for experienced search marketers, returns to Seattle June 22-23. MarTech: The Marketing Tech Conference is for marketers responsible for selecting marketing technologies and developing marketing technologists. Facebook, he said, is committed to spending the company’s money and resources in a long-term effort to make searching within the platform a better experience for its users.
By getting it right, he said, Facebook will be able to give users information they can’t get from other search engines or social networks. In yesterday’s comments, Zuckerberg admitted search within Facebook is still a work in progress. But he said it’s getting better and that recent improvements in mobile search have caused the number to average daily searches to pass 1 billion again.

Just because you mark some of your Facebook data as private doesn't mean that you're hard to track down. So what you’re seeing in all these status updates are anonymous shoutouts with numbers (usually not any more inventive than 7, 21 and 69) replacing names. Invite your friends through a status update to send you their favorite number via a Facebook message if they want feedback on what you think about them. Post a status, starting with the given number, and tell the world how you feel about this person, how you met, or anything that comes to mind.

In an announcement today, Facebook says the expansion is underway now and will continue over the next few weeks. Facebook first launched Graph Search back in January to an extremely small number of beta users.
Graph Search still lacks a few important features, though: searching through posts and comments. During the expansion, Facebook will also show all users an alert in the upper right of the home page letting them know that Graph Search is rolling out more widely and reminding them to check their sharing settings.
Results in Graph Search are limited to content and activity that’s been shared with the person doing the searching. The move comes about seven months since Graph Search first launched, and there’s been some changes to it since that happened.
Over the past couple of months, various features for Facebook have been teased and announced. Facebook is working on some artificial intelligence research, with the hopes of warning users when they are about to upload an embarrassing picture. Facebook’s ‘Like’ button has been a symbol of the company for years now, and there have been requests for a ‘Dislike’ button for as long as the feature has been available. Advertisements are where much of Facebook’s revenue comes from, which is why they are always hoping to find innovative ways for their advertisements to work. Though this is the year that Snapchat was monetized for the first time, the ephemeral social media app ran into a variety of snags.
These leaked emails had a number of early reveals to the public about what Snapchat will be working on in the future. In November, Snapchat launched Snapcash, a feature that allows friends to send money to one another via debit card.
Similarly, searching in Bing would allow Facebook users to find results from their friends. What this means for the future of the partnership between Facebook and Bing is currently unclear, though it is likely that these changes have been made in relation to Facebook’s new search functions, which I talked about last week. However, the refining of their search functions appears to be used to compete with other search experiences.
Twitter’s search had worked similarly to this beforehand, though it didn’t quite extend all the way back to the beginning of Twitter.
Searching is customized for each user, so that users can search only through posts that have been shared with them, rather than all posts on Facebook. For instance, now any user can type in “happy hour” or “great burger” and find every time that one of their friends referenced this sort of thing.
This is the kind of thing that happens when we add acquaintances, co-workers, or other people you may have randomly met on social networks like Facebook and Twitter.
Through this setting, you can easily unfollow these people without having to delete them as friends and potentially run into the social awkwardness that can be associated with this. Twitter released new tools of their own yesterday that allow uses to report harassment, offensive, threatening, or suicidal tweets, so that the company is able to more quickly handle the situation. Specifically, the social network now limits the number of phone number lookups that any given IP address can perform on Facebook. Simply type the phone number into Facebooka€™s search bar and any profile associated with that phone number will pop upa€”even if that person has set their phone number to private. There are two different privacy settings associated with phone numbers (and email addresses) on Facebook: One relates to what shows up on your profile, and one relates to what others can use to look you up on Facebook. And since many people assume that setting their phone number or email address to private on their profile means that ita€™s private, most people never realize they need to change this setting as well.
Facebook did say that, at the time of Prakesha€™s experiment, it had a system in place for a€?preventing the malicious usage of [its] search functionality,a€? but it has since tweaked the system to be a little more sensitive. I admit to using it a time or two when Ia€™ve been curious, or when Ia€™ve wanted to find someone who has a particularly generic name. Facebook doesna€™t require a phone number (except for some features, such as two-factor authentication), but it does require an email address.
On your About page, go to Contact Info > Edit (youa€™ll have to re-enter your password), and then check out the column on the right-hand side. Our parent company, IDG, receives advertisement revenue for shopping activity generated by the links.
That promised update was never widely rolled out, but Facebook said it learned during testing that people were most interested in seeing posts from friends and pages they liked. English — and so people using Facebook in other languages never lost the ability to search for posts. The closer the connection, the higher a given piece of content will display in the results. But Stocky said that only included about two days of posts, and even then the results were inconsistent. Our local search writer Greg Sterling believes so and covers this in a companion story today, Facebook Search: Why Doesn’t The Company Get Local? He spent 24 years with the Los Angeles Times, serving as social media and reader engagement editor from 2010-2014. That number, which Zuckerberg touted first in 2012, had fallen, because on average users search less on mobile. There are a lot of questions that only Facebook can answer, that the other services aren’t going to be able to answer for you.
Software engineer Reza Moaiandin has learned that it's possible to scoop up the public details of legions of Facebook users simply by guessing phone numbers with a random number generator. Facebook tells The Guardian that it has "network monitoring tools" running to watch for suspicious data activity, and its developer kit rules limit just how (and how often) apps can scrape information.

Here is how it works: users can ask their friends what they think about them by supplying them with a number through a message. Back in October, some hacked screenshots were discovered, which revealed that Facebook was working on friend-to-friend payment features for Facebook Messenger. Using a specific branch of AI known as ‘deep learning,’ the idea is to keep users from potentially uploading content that could be embarrassing or otherwise problematic for them. In one instance, third-party apps allowed many photos taken with Snapchat to be saved and eventually exposed, in an event known as ‘The Snappening.’ However, Snapchat has proven this year that they are willing to change and alter their interface to provide a better experience for its users. One that stands out in particular would have to be the fact that Snapchat has met with Sony Music Entertainment in an attempt to bring a music service to the Snapchat platform, an interesting move that is definitely different from the norm for Snapchat.
They also opened up their Geofilters tool to the public a few weeks ago, which allows users to submit artwork that will appear as a geo-targeted filter in Snapchat photos.
However, it appears that Facebook has been making some changes regarding the way their search function works. A Microsoft spokesperson says that they continue to partner with Facebook in other areas apart from the search function. Not wanting to be left behind, Facebook has updated their own search function in response and finally is now allowing users to find older posts. Yet it’s become quite commonplace to add these people as ‘friends’ despite you not being friends with them outside of the virtual world. Other settings have also been included that make it easier to determine what it is that you want to see less of, so that your News Feed is more customized to show you the kinds of things you might actually be interested in. Considering how there have been many instances of people using Twitter for malicious or abusive purposes, it seems that Twitter is trying to find ways to cut down on this sort of behavior amongst its user base. Thankfully, if that person is your Facebook friend – you can easily view his or her phone number by logging into your Facebook account.
However, the other privacy setting, which relates to what people can use to look up your Facebook profile, is tucked away in Facebooka€™s privacy settings, under How You Connect. I suggest setting up a a€?social networking-onlya€? email address to use just for Facebook and junk mail. Next to each piece of contact info you have listed, click the little arrow and choose Only Me. You cana€™t choose Only Me for this settinga€“but you can prevent people who are not your explicit Facebook friends from looking you up using a phone number or an email address.
Because the buttons are attached programmatically, they should not be interpreted as editorial endorsements. You can only find posts from yourself, those you follow or which have been shared with you. English language setting, will start rolling out today on the desktop and the iOS mobile app and should reach all eligible users in the next couple weeks, Stocky said. Now, post search will go through all Facebook posts in the index, a set of more than 1 trillion posts that grows by billions every day. A graduate of UC Irvine and the University of Missouri journalism school, Beck started started his career at the Times as a sportswriter and copy editor. We’re really committed to investing in that and building out this unique service over the long term.
You see, the social network defaults to letting anyone search for you using your phone number, even if it's unlisted -- as there's no search limit, all it takes is a script to harvest the user IDs for thousands of people. The company could theoretically cut off access to an app if it grabs too many profiles too quickly.
The friend then gives the answer via a status update, and attaches the number to their answer for identification purposes.
After leaving traditional media in the mid-1990s, he began developing and marketing websites and continued to provide consulting services for more than 15 years. Users will be able to enter their debit card information to easily transfer money to friends.
Many people are familiar with ads that start up before a video is played, but Facebook wants to test out what happens when ads are played after the video has ended. In reaction to The Snappening, Snapchat added a function that allowed users to see if another app was saving pictures from Snapchat. With these recent developments, one can only expect that Snapchat will continue to expand in the future. It still is possible that Facebook and Bing will work concurrently in the future, but under what circumstances is currently unknown. The search function can also be used to find friends’ opinions regarding major news events by typing in keywords like “ebola” or “Ferguson.” With Facebook making everyone’s posts that much more public, your privacy settings may be more important than ever, so it may be worth taking a look at those again now that Facebook has rolled this feature out.
Contacts section of your Facebook profile show listing of Facebook friends along with their mobile phone numbers. I think at some point there’s going to be an inflection where it just starts to be useful for a lot of use cases. As you can imagine, there's a real worry that this will not only let black market dealers and hackers collect targets en masse, but help them get numbers to use for phone-oriented attacks and spying.
The concern is that Facebook isn't explicitly tackling this problem by instituting firm caps on data collection. His SEO and social media clients ranged from mom-and-pop small businesses to one of the Top 5 online retailers. This feature still has not been officially announced, but is likely among the features for Facebook that will be rolled out in the New Year.
It will truly be interesting to see how Facebook and the other social networks continue to evolve in the coming year. Luckily, Facebook and Twitter understand this and are adding features to help you see only what you want to see, regardless of who you might follow or be friends with. Only friends who have chosen setting to show phone number to other Facebook friends will have phone number listing along with their name.See Mobile Phone number of friends on Facebook1.
Even if it's not possible to circumvent the developer rules, nosy intruders might get lots of information before Facebook cuts them off.
