Is Facebook Doing a 2GO? One-in-four Users have Deleted the app

It's no more new that Facebook is no longer appealing to the younger generation. Also, few week ago, they lost one million active users - the highest in the company’s history. Now, In a recently concluded survey of 4,594 people, it was seen that 26% of these people deleted the app from their phones. So more people keep deleting the Facebook app from their phones.

Is Facebook Doing a 2GO? One-in-four Users have Deleted the app

In addition, the stats also disclosed that 9% of those people downloaded all the information Facebook took from them, 54% have adjusted the privacy settings on their app, and the percentage of those who have taken a break from the app is 42%.

Younger ones are more likely to delete the app from their phones than older ones. 44% of people aged 18 – 29 actually deleted the app. The privacy adjustment was also made by more of the young ones, while both adults and young ones took almost the same amount of break from the app with 47% and 40% respectively.

The result of the survey might be biased and greatly affected by the Cambridge Analytical Scandal. Reports say that almost 87 Million Facebook subscribers had their information used without consent by researcher Aleksandr Kogan who sold the information to Cambridge Analytica for use by the Trump campaign.

On Facebook right now there appears to be the same number of Republicans and Democrats with both parties having the same number of people who delete the app or take a vacation off it for a while.

Leaked Image of a Nokia Smartphone With 5 Rear Cameras

Early this year, there were reports of Nokia making a phone with 5 cameras, and it looks to be something that might actually happen as a well-known leakster called Slashleaks has shared a live image of a Nokia-branded device with multiple cameras.

Leaked Image of a Nokia Smartphone With 5 Rear Cameras

The image that was posted online shows the back of the phone with a total of six holes, where five of these holes are the camera lenses while the last on is for the LED flash.

A closer look at the picture above will also show the word ZEISS printed between the first and second holes, the Nokia Logo at the middle and Android One at the rear bottom. For your information, ZEISS is a German company that produces optical technologies which includes camera lenses.

Just few days ago, there were reports that Samsung was working on a device with 5 rear cameras which is expected later this year. We do not know how this phone with 5 cameras will work, but it's certain that HMD Global will try its best to give customers an amazing experience.

The Honor 8X has Better Cameras than the Honor 8X Max?

Honor is unarguably flourishing as a sub-brand to Huawei. Recently, the China-based company has been on its toes with efforts to provide the populace of China and surrounding countries with budget friendly gaming smartphones, including a new flasghip device and the Honor 8X and 8X Max which are expected to be released later this week.

The Honor 8X has Better Cameras than the Honor 8X Max?

With the Honor 7X, we saw a great device which is undeniably the best ultra-affordable unlocked device available. This makes us wonder in amazement at what the 8X and 8X Max are bringing to the table. We have some of the specifications of these devices thanks to the obligatory certification visit to the TENAA agency.

In terms of display the Honor 8X will likely be 6.5-inch tall, while the 8X Max will large sport a 7.12 inches display, including a notch and wide aspect ratio. The 8X weighs 175 grams and has a battery capacity of 3,650 mAh, whereas the more-premium 8X Max is 210 grams heavy and runs on a bigger battery juice of 4,900 mAh.

The Honor 8X is, however, looking like it's going to have a better camera than the 8X Max. According to TENAA listing, the 8X features a dual 20 + 2 MP back facing camera and a single 16MP front camera.

In terms of performance, both models are expected to have 4 and 6GB RAM configurations, with 64 and 128GB internal storage space also on deck, while (EMUI-skinned) Android 8.1 Oreo will unsurprisingly run the software show. Meanwhile, the processor that would be used is still in the dark, but the chipset listed with a CPU clocked at 2.2 GHz which could really only be Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 or Huawei’s own Kirin 710.

Keep your fingers crossed as we bring you more information and updates on this upcoming smartphones.

See What Will Happen to Bloggers and Social Media Users With 5000 Followers

It seems that one needs to fly overseas to have peace of mind when using social media. Internet monitoring in Africa has gained momentum again as Egypt too has joined the list of countries that regulate social media use of its citizens.

Bloggers and Social Media Users With 5000 Followers are now Being Monitored

Before now, the Ugandan government mandated a tax of 200 shillings daily to use social networks, while Zambia recently imposed a $0.03 daily tariff charged on internet calls in the country. Now, the Egyptian president has passed a billed where it is allowed to monitor social media users as part of the internet tightening controls.

This action by the president would give the Supreme Council for Media Regulation the power to supervise people who have more than 5000 followers on social media or personal blog. They would also have the power to suspend or block accounts that post fake news that incite violence, hate and violation of the law.

In opposition to this, right groups have branded this law as an attempt by the government to limiting freedom of expression online. However, over 500 websites have already been blocked even before the new law took effect.

Now, Egyptians with 5k or more followers on Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook and other social networks are being strictly monitored. How long do you think it would take before this social Media Regulation reaches our beloved Nigeria and the rest of Africa?

Insane! Samsung is Prepping a Smartphone With 4 Back Cameras

Samsung has been tipped to be working on a photo monster of a device with four main cameras. This was made known by renowned leakster, Ice Universe, and it has got a lot of people thinking and longing for this to come to reality.

Insane! Samsung is Prepping a Smartphone With 4 Primary Cameras

In a tweet that contained only the words “Samsung. Camera Camera Camera Camera”, @iceuniverse stirred a lot of speculation go up into the air. At first, people thought it would be a regular device with four cameras which in itself is not new as we already have devices with 2 back and 2 front cameras each. In fact, LG is even prepping a device which will sport 5 cameras in total.

However, this rumored upcoming Samsung phone is very well different from other 4-cameras smartphones, and it might even be the first of it kind. In an interaction with other Twitter users, it was revealed that the four cameras would all be located at the back of the device. The source also revealed that this device is to be expected later this year.

Given that the Note 9 has been released already and this yet-to-be-announced handset doesn't fit the F line-up (which is for flip phones), Samsung will likely introduce a whole new series for it.

In this post, I'll be showing you how to request for verification on Instagram and get the blue tick next to your username.

  • Open the Instagram app and navigate to Settings;
  • Step 2: Scroll down and tap Request Verification;
