The combination will allow Time, which owns Sports Illustrated, Time Magazine and several other storied print publications, to combine its editorial offerings with a storehouse of user data. Many companies, Time’s CEO, Joe Ripp, told trade publication AdExchanger, have either editorial content or Facebook user data. “We can offer both, and stand apart from those that offer one or the other,” he said. MySpace, founded by a group of ambitious Friendster users in 2003, rose in prominence through the early aughts with such speed that it began to consider acquisitions – Facebook, for example, then a promising rival. The fallen tech star is now owned by Time Inc, which acquired the company almost by accident after buying ad tech firm Viant. MySpace thinks it has the upper hand in this competition thanks to its substantially larger music catalog.
Libra, Facebook’s project to launch a global cryptocurrency, may launch as soon a January but as a stablecoin and not as a basket of assets that it originally sought to create. According to a report in the FT, Libra may launch in early 2021 as a cryptocurrency pegged to the US dollar. The report indicated that the Libra Association, a group of firms backing the crypto, anticipates launching multiple stablecoins backed by fiat currency but starting with the US dollar. Facebook plans to launch a cryptocurrency called Libra next year as part of its wider efforts to expand beyond social networking and into e-commerce and global payments. There are many hurdles to jump before Facebook could reach this stage, but the company’s long-term vision for Libra could mirror bitcoin more closely than we realize. Mike Novogratz, CEO of Galaxy Digital, a crypto merchant bank, suggested that Libra may eventually abandon its peg, just like the US dollar ditched the gold standard in 1971.

He’s put in ad blockers for any and every republican ads on the PLATFORM so that he can have it be a liberal heaven if you will. I was very recently in an involuntary argument on argument. I stated my opinion of something and DOZENS of people VOLUNTARILY replied to it causing a commotion which branched into a massive argument. The Facebook fad is dwindling and people are starting to realize that it’s a false and shallow look into others lives, seeing a very narrow sliver of what others hope to be. The truth is that what is posted on there doesn’t reflect the true nature of the person. If people want to see a very skewd view of others then let them.

Under its new corporate parents, MySpace was forced to relocate from a trendy space in Santa Monica near the ocean to a quiet, leafy street in Beverly Hills, which instantly robbed the company of its start-up edge. In contrast, by maintaining its independence — and offering stock options — Facebook was able to hire the best engineers, critical to its continued growth and innovation. Facebook, many in Silicon Valley believe, hired superior engineers, and was built on a superior platform — making it impossible for MySpace to compete. Stories of sexual predatorsand overaggressive homepage ads took their toll, as privacy issues were not addressed. And it didn’t give users enough to do, whether through gaming or sharing posts.
It is getting out in the real world and meeting people. The more people rely on FB, the less likely they will be able to function in real life relationships. Also, it drives me CRAZY when I hear a company say “like me on Facebook.” I would rather not use that company at all. I just more people would get away from Facebook for a week.
