[b]ADS ADS everywhere, don’t know what to see[/b]
At the point when Facebook propelled product catalogue promotions, advertisers could push specific products to the user dependent on what they had recently visited on the site. This has quickly turned out to be a standout amongst the best converting campaign on Facebook.
Facebook is on the path of becoming the new YouTube!
It was believed that Facebook prioritizes users experience before everything else; however, these settings seem to be changing now. Everyone needs money or ways to increase their wealth. One of the most valued companies in the world is not far behind. The most recent refresh with the tech goliath permits recordings on Facebook to play with programmed sound as a matter of course, which could be advantageous for promoters, therefore help Facebook increment their wealth. While real brands are keen on more choices to fuse sound into video promotions, the move is an intriguing decision for Facebook, as it can likewise be viewed as a massive advance in reverse in UX. Auto-play sound-on recordings are every now and again close to the highest point of advertisement organizes most disdained by clients. Snap Inc, who has recently ventured into Wall Street is also trying to incorporate ads into “Stories.” At times on your Facebook timeline, you can see your educational video or a cooking lesson of making the best pie in the world being interrupted by a long video of the latest “Facial Cleaner” or another product you seriously do not care about or care too much to have it in your arms in the next 24 seconds and later go on scrolling through Facebook looking at cute baby pictures or looking at Who married Whom? We are certain; if this helps Facebook or Snapchat (not owned by our little Zuck!) make a little money, it will be followed on Instagram and other Social Media Platforms. So, go ahead click on those ads and help these corporates make more money. Will the novelty wear off soon or is it here to stay? Only time will tell! Till then click on those ads and increase those zeros on balance sheets.
Facebook is taking a shot at a parallel way to deal with Google with regards to giving advertisers the likelihood to pick what sort of content is allowed to display in their promotions. This could be deciphered as a brand “wellbeing instrument.” For example, advertisers could choose not to indicate advertisements with political content or some other content they don’t accept would fit with a particular brand. In this day and age, brand mindfulness is critical to a lucrative business, and the exertion of Facebook to give more control to promoters is a positive development. The ads that we see on Facebook is not a coincidence. Indeed, in some way or the other, this social media giant knows exactly our interest or what we searched. It’s evident that advertisers are getting what they want, and this is what’s helping Facebook to generate top bucks. Even the bygone era of YouTube was known for showing Ads between videos, and users were afraid to watch those ads. Now, the same policy can be seen on Facebook. No matter if you are watching something fruitful or funny, you’ll be interrupted, and it’s not your fault, but it’s us who made Facebook a matter of hype and now money


  Snapchat is what the future holds!

Blessing in disguise” – A billion dollar company.
Snapchat has for some time been the sort of organization that is anything but difficult to underestimate. Its users have generally been teenagers, and children are flighty. Without a doubt, at this moment 187 million individuals utilize the application consistently, as indicated by Snap, yet regardless of whether they adore it presently, it’s anything but awkward to accept their consideration is short lived. Facebook often try to imitate Snapchat’s model, be it filters, stories, and whatnot. A popular mobile App that allows users to send pictures/videos without consuming any memory. As the media is self-destructed after its being viewed by the receiver.

Is Snapchat the future?
History:
A mobile App created by Evan Spiegel, Bobby Murphy, and Reggie Brown when they were students at Stanford University. The main motive behind this application was to share/send explicit content that will last for a few seconds. Sexting would be precise.
After a lot of amendments, its initial release was September 11, 2011.
On November 14, 2013, Facebook offered $3 billion to acquire Snapchat. But Spiegel knew its worth and declined the cash offer.
Likewise, On November 15, 2013, Google then offered $4 billion but unfortunately, Google failed to entice Evan Spiegel, or maybe he was skeptical.
[b]Current Scenario:[/b]
Snap produced $404.5 million in income in 2016, generally from promoting. Snap would like to profit by floods in mobile promotions, as organizations look to showcase themselves through customers’ phones rather than the TV and print. To catch a high volume of versatile publicists, Snapchat would like to draw in clients through an assortment of new changes. The organization is trying to assist its associations with media brands, for example, Buzzfeed and Cosmopolitan to guarantee that clients consider Snapchat to be a place to send amusing selfies to companions as well as find out about the news and read charming “bullet point article” style articles. Besides, Snapchat is entering the domain of unique video content by arranging systems like NBC, ESPN, and Turner to create content for its blossoming “Shows” stage. The organization is additionally wanting to enter the universe of augmented reality.
According to different networks, Snapchat is the 3rd most popular App with a 32.9% penetration on the demographic mobile phones. With more than 150 Million daily active users. The company predicts that they will have another 13.6 percent increase by 2017.

Snapchat millennial user stats
Currently, the company is making top bucks from the advertisement – geofilters, sponsored stories, etc., which is a boon for users, advertisers, and Snapchat.
Future Prediction:
Few studies suggest that, after a decade platform like Snapchat, WhatsApp will be more successful in the future. As their reach and connectivity are much faster and better than other social platforms like Facebook, Twitter, etc.
Though, it’s still debatable.

Studies
[Image: maxresdefault.jpg?resize=768%2C432&ssl=1]
In this era of technology advancement, companies are investing millions of dollars in Video Games to offer reel reality. Likewise, these games can be so addictive that one could play it every day without changing their interest. Generally, it’s often said that children who learn to play chess at a tender age carry the sign of high intellect. However, playing video games does not show adverse effects. Instead, it offers some of the best cognitive benefits such as vocabulary enhancement, improves coordination, multitasking, and quick decision-making skills. In fact, in one investigation, players who were inundated in fast-paced recreations were 25 percent speedier in responding to inquiries regarding a picture they had recently observed contrasted with non-players, and according to 2015 research conducted in The Journal of Neuroscience at the University of California. Irvine selected 69 members and requested some of the members to play Super Mario 3D World and Angry Birds for two weeks, while the remaining members were supposed to do nothing..
 Results & Other effects?
The general population who played Mario wound up improving the situation on follow-up memory assignments, while the others demonstrated no change pre-and post-gaming.
Not merely this, playing video games acts as a pain reliever and helps to reduce anxiety or chronic illness. Even the virtual reality games offer significant help in memory building and make children even smarter.

A 2014 report distributed in Molecular Psychiatry by specialists from the Max Planck Institute in Germany, found that playing Super Mario 64 caused an expansion in the extent of mind districts. Particularly the bits of the mind in charge of spatial introduction, the memory arrangement, vital arranging, and exceptional engine aptitudes. It has additionally been watched that brutality showed on TV, for example, in real life motion pictures or news has more odds of prompting viciousness in kids that the rough diversions, i.e., violent games. Notwithstanding, take note of that when a kid plays an intense game he is probably going to encounter some physiological impacts. These impacts incorporate an expansion of both heart rate and cerebrum movement.


Taking everything into account, it is safe to state that vicious diversions scarcely prompt brutal conduct in youngsters. In any case, they are not painful to the youngsters due to their addictive nature, which can stop a kid’s development.

These days toddlers are getting familiar with video games and technology to improve their memory and concentration power, even science has proven in some way that playing video games do help in enhancing brain cells. That’s why the smart class concept is under the spotlight and students are taught with the digital means instead of medieval approach. It also justifies the fact that a student finds it more comfortable to interact with 3-D visibility objects than the pictures in the books. So, it’s safe to say that games are not only addictive but imperative too, as they improve our planning and management skills as player figures out how to oversee assets that are restricted, and choose the best utilization of assets, an indistinguishable path from. This ability is sharpened in strategy games, for example, SimCity, Age of Empires, and Railroad Tycoon.
Violence in Video games?

However, one cannot disavow the fact that, to some extent, video games are a reason behind the violence. Even a study was finished by the Ohio State University as of late to check whether playing violent computer games makes you more aggressive and thus fiercer. The repercussions were drastic; as it also states that playing video games such as Call of Duty 4, Condemned 2, The club, etc. are the reason behind one’s aggression. Somewhere in the midst of entertainment, youngsters are adopting the ways to attack or to confront anger. Since the state of mind gets aggressive after playing games, which involves shooting or killing someone. It is also said that kids play games because it works as a stress buster, but it also generates a sense of defending us while hurting the person behind your anger. Amid the most recent year and according to a CNN report, there had been one school
Lastly, after seeing so many scenarios of school shootings, one cannot deny the fact that video games are leading the young minds towards aggressive behavior. Whereas, from an academic point of view, these games act as a learning platform. Games such as GTA, Mortal Kombat are training youngsters with a negative approach. Since it’s quite imperative to know; how a mind is perceiving such graphics, which has an adverse effect on one’s mind.

Posted by: Keranov - 03-31-2019, 06:59 PM - Forum: Gaming Discussion - No Replies

If you could choose basically any world from any video game you want - which video game's world will you choose? Are there any particular reasons for your choice or is it just at random?

It seems like a strange choice but I can say The Walking Dead. You can have a very interesting life there but most of the time full with sadness. Anyway, the game is just an amazing one.


  Longest without video games?
Posted by: Keranov - 03-31-2019, 06:36 PM - Forum: Gaming Discussion - No Replies

What do you think is the longest time period you can go without playing a single video game? Would you spend more time to catch on after the no games challenge end?

I think that the longest I can do without gaming is 2 weeks, maybe a month at most. Playing video games is very relaxing for me, at least most of the time. And it's a thing which I love to do in my free time.


  Headphones or earphones?
Posted by: Keranov - 03-31-2019, 06:27 PM - Forum: Gaming Discussion - No Replies

Do you prefer to use earphones over headphones to play video games? If so, what are the reasons for that? Have you always been using earphones for gaming?

Perosnally, I can't stand earphones at first. They always get out and I find them very uncomfortable. Also, the quality ones are much more expensive compared to headphones.


  SSD only for games?
Posted by: Keranov - 03-31-2019, 06:25 PM - Forum: Gaming Discussion - No Replies

Do you have a lot of SSD (Solid State Drive) space to install your video games on and cut the loading times? If so, how much space you have dedicated for games?

I don't have an SSD installed in my PC. It's not an expensive one so I didn't find the need to get an SSD. But If I was to get one I would definitely get a 512GB version for video games.


  Favourite device to play on?
Posted by: Keranov - 03-31-2019, 06:21 PM - Forum: Gaming Discussion - No Replies

Every gamer has different preferences on what device to play games - PS, Xbox, PC, Mobile, etc. Do you play on multiple devices or you just stick to a single one? If so, what is it?

I only have my PC for gaming and it's my favourite platform to play. I also play some mobile games on my phone from time to time when I'm not at home. Not into the console world.
