Facebook Wants To Cut Clutter

The website that has now more than 1 billion users is, once again, revamping their design. The new design or “template” is designed to cut useless clutter from Facebook’s “News Feed” and in return keep users happy as Facebook receives most of their income from users clicking on advertisements.

Facebook announced the changes during a media event at its headquarters in Menlo Park, California. They also mentioned that the web version would start to roll out on Thursday, continuing over the next couple of weeks if not months. Facebook also announced that they are in the middle of updating their iOS and Android application and that we would begin to see the revamped versions in the coming weeks.

The news feed is sometimes the only page you will see when logging into Facebook and for that reason, we think, Zuckerberg wanted to revamp Facebook’s most-visited page as soon as possible.

“I think that there’s this important and social place in this world for this customized newspaper,” Zuckerberg said.

Angry Birds Halloween: No Free Update [Apps]

Angry Birds Halloween

All of you Angry Birds fans will most likely love the Halloween Angry Birds game that was recently released. The new Angry Birds Halloween game is not a free update for the original Angry Birds app, It’s actually a separate app costing $0.99. You might ask why they would bother to make it a separate app. Honestly, I have absolutely no clue. An interesting thing I noticed while looking at it on the App Store is that the Halloween app was published by Rovio Mobile Ltd. all though the original Angry Birds was published by Clickgamer.com.

The Angry Birds Halloween game consists of 45 Halloween levels, & includes Facebook & Twitter integration. It also contains online leader-boards for the comparison of scores. 🙂 The Halloween application is a bit short, but other than that it’s quite enjoyable to play. I would definitely not pay $0.99 for a one-time (Halloween) game. It’s only worth it, while it’s Halloween.

Pros:
  • Facebook & Twitter Integration
  • Online Leader-boards
  • “Spooky” Halloween based theme
Cons:
  • Only 45 Levels
  • Costs $0.99 (Isn’t a FREE Update to the original Angry Birds)
