Facebook was briefly unavailable on Thursday morning in a number of countries in Europe and america, with the outage affecting desktop and mobile sites.

Soon after 9 a.m. London time, the website forwarded to one message telling users the unspecified problem will be fixed immediately. After thirty minutes, normal service have been resumed with the web site once more allowing users to sign in. Reports from news wires indicated that users from everywhere have been hit by the outage.

Facebook is continuing to grow into the largest social networking, with an increase of than 1.49 billion active users, according to its 2015 second-quarter earnings report. This number was a 13 percent increase from this past year, and a 3.47 percent increase from the prior quarter.

There is absolutely no denying Facebook really wants to grow, increase users and expand its content-delivery options. The business purchased WhatsApp and Instagram for an impressive $22 billion and $1 billion, respectively. They have huge plans because of its messaging app, which already accocunts for ten percent of global mobile voice over IP calls. Oh, and Facebook says its messaging app is 1 percent finished.

This change will probably cause visitors to spend less time on Facebook, but make enough time they do spend there ‘more valuable,’ according to CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

Facebook just announced a significant impending News Feed change, which is supposed to boost users’ mental health, but will probably cause Page admins to visit a drop in engagement.

In order to make the service better for people’s well-being, Facebook is changing up its News Feed ranking algorithm to start out showing users more posts from family, friends and groups they are part of, and less content from businesses, brands and media organizations. This change will probably cause visitors to spend less time on Facebook, but make enough time they do spend there "more valuable," CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote in a post.

Facebook already racks up some serious advertising dollars from massive corporate companies. Now the social giant has big eyes for big ad bucks from mom and pop shops, too. And it’s really ready to send them to "boot camp" over the summertime to find the money ball rolling.

Mark Zuckerberg’s 1.2 billion-member social networking announced today that it’ll host five "Facebook Fit" small company boot camp-style events from early June to early August together with fellow California tech heavies Intuit QuickBooks, LegalZoom and Square.

Facebook Inc. provided more evidence on Wednesday that it could turn eyeballs into profit as the maker of the world’s most popular app and social website trounced Wall Street’s estimates, sending its shares to an all-time high.

The leading social media company’s mobile app and push into video attracted new advertisers and encouraged existing ones to invest more. It now has a lot more than 1.7 billion monthly users, well before any rivals.

Its shares were up 5.4 percent in after-hours trading at $130.01, after hitting their highest because the company went public in 2012.

Sometimes, Facebook will leave up a rule-breaking post from an elected official because it has been declared ‘newsworthy and in the general public interest.’ Now the business will probably label such posts to create this distinction clear.

Next time President Trump posts something inflammatory on social media, Facebook may end up labeling it.

On Friday, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said the social networking begins labeling posts from politicians when this content breaks its rules. Normally, Facebook immediately takes down such content. However in some cases, Facebook will leave up a rule-breaking post because it’s been declared “newsworthy and in the general public interest.”

It’s becoming more and more difficult to maintain with all the social media changes. Now with the launch of Meerkat and Periscope and the recent Twitter/Google deal it appears loud and clear that social media is the better, and most innovative, spot to gain more exposure and more customers for your enterprise.

If you’ve experienced business for some time you’ve probably tested a number of social media sites. And perhaps you’re on every one of them because you are feeling like being everywhere can be an important part of your marketing? Nevertheless, you that it’s not. Actually, it’s not about being everywhere but everywhere that counts. Why? Because effective social media isn’t quantity, it’s quality, which applies to likes and followers, too.

Many people want to home based. Few understand how to make it work.

Working at home isn’t glorified playtime. It isn’t an opportunity to goof off. For the successful, it’s a chance to do everything you love and reap the advantages of coming to home.

Unfortunately, there are a great number of misconceptions going swimming social media and the net in general. Actually, when you visit a flashing banner advertisement with the phrase “home based,” your natural inclination is in order to avoid it just like the plague. I don’t blame you.

Indistractable author Nir Eyal on how best to operate against an onslaught of connectivity.

We reside in an environment of constant distraction nowadays. Or at least that’s just how it feels. An army of devices and digital media channels call out to us, demanding our attention, and sucking up our time. It’s getting harder and harder to spotlight things that actually matter. We’ve all been there. Whether it’s trying to focus on something at work limited to a never-ending blast of emails to keep us from reaching a flow state, or in a family group or social setting where everyone in the group has their head buried within their phone, these distractions are overtaking our lives.

Perhaps you’ve noticed the sensation before.

You’re on Facebook or Instagram, scrolling through your feed consuming post after post of “valuable” content and inspiring information.

You strat to get pumped up, don’t you? I understand I really do.

It feels great to check out other people doing effectively and want to yourself, “That may be me!”

It feels better still to learn a motivational quote that basically resonates with you and think, “This is the precise advice I needed!”
