Facebook phasing out the Share button

Posted in Facebook by Conner Flynn on February 28th, 2011

Facebook has announced that they will be slowly phasing out the Share button. If you want to share articles in the future, you would have to Like it instead. Right now, when you Like something, it only shows up as a single line on your news feed, while if you Shared something, you’d get the full story, with the headline attached, a thumbnail and a link to the original post.

So the Like button will act like the Share button instead. It’s good for those who make the content as they will get more links, but there will be a lot more content on your page. We aren’t sure what they are thinking with this tweak, but I guess we will see it in action soon.

BlackBerry overtakes iOS in US web share

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on December 1st, 2010

The BlackBerry had a victory today after StatCounter showed the platform overtaking the iPhone in web use in the US. They’ve been steadily narrowing the gap over the past year, and now RIM just slightly overtook Apple in traffic, accounting for 34.3 percent of American traffic while iOS slipped to 33 percent. Despite signs of growth before, Android as a web platform has leveled off at just 23.8 percent.

Worldwide figures also show RIM climbing, at 19.25 percent, but it still trailed iOS’ 21.9 percent and was well behind Symbian’s 31.9 percent. If these trends continue, Android and BlackBerry devices could get twice the web share of iOS sometime next year.

Android share jumps to 25.5 percent

According to Gartner’s third quarter smartphone data, Android has a 25.5% slice of worldwide smartphone sales, helping it achieve the second place as an operating system, right behind Symbian. Apple’s iOS dropped a bit compared to last year, with 16.6% this time.

Symbian is still at the top spot this year at 36.6%, but their position is being threatened. Global mobile phone sales totaled 417 million units in the third quarter of 2010, a 35 percent increase from the third quarter of 2009.
