Join Tecnogrupo, the New TB Discussion Group on Facebook

Many of you already knew the discussion group that our site had on Facebook. We launched it in December 2013 and in no time he hit more than 10 000 members! The crowd was always very participatory there and of course time or another had to deal with trolls, haters and all that riffraff that the technology we already are accustomed to do, right?

We do not have much patience with trolls here in TB. If you ‘re messing up the discussion with extremist arguments and disrespecting little friend, we boot out of the room, even. For the good of the community.

It was one of those who, a few months ago, our editor Paul Higa was nervousar and decided to change the status of the group to Secret. With this level of privacy, no one else can access the said, not with the url at hand. But he only found out then that with this number of members, it was not possible to reduce the level of privacy later.

In short, closed, okay sealed. A hug!

The logic of Facebook until it makes sense: if I go into a group that is secret, it’s because I do not want anyone knowing the things I read or post. So, how is my privacy if the moderator solve open the group after a while?

The bullshit is that in a secret group, only enter who are invited directly by an admin. And then our inbox was getting a little crowded with requests “hey, add me in the group of TB?”.

Anyway, to let the fairest thing we decided to do a migration. The former group stopped accepting new posts and will continue only there for those who want to see your history. The new group already is in the air and set to private – anyone can access and request participation, but only members can read and publish posts.

So bora migrate to Tecnogrupo?

 

Facebook Messenger Will Support Third-party Apps and Channels of Communication with Companies

Since Facebook started requiring a separate app to use your chat on mobile devices there is the suspicion that the company is reserving bigger plans for the service. The confirmation came today (25): the developer conference F8, the company revealed that the Messenger will turn a kind of platform.

 

What does that mean? Which companies can create small applications for use within the Facebook Messenger. It is a way to expand the amount of service resources.

These apps can be used to share videos, music and GIFs, for example. One of the applications already confirmed is the JibJab, which allows sending greeting cards. Another is Ditty, a funny app that reads messages in rhythm music.

The installation of the applications can be made from the button “more” (ellipsis icon) Facebook Messenger. If a user receives contents of an unknown application, there you will see a button that gives you the installation option.

Mark Zuckerberg and his crew hope the apps make the conversations more interesting Messenger and therefore “hold” more users there. But this is not the only novelty: Facebook also wants the service to be used more frequently in communication between businesses and consumers.

For this, the company announced on Business Messenger platform, created in partnership with Zendesk, a company specialized in online service. The idea is that of all sizes can create the Messenger channels to answer customer questions, provide technical support, send promotions or communicate consumer sending a product, for example.

Both new attention-grabbing, but also leave us with a flea in his ear, and the apps leave the heavier Messenger (than it is)? Will the talks are not too polluted? There is no risk of the Facebook “read” my chats with companies to display ads for products?

Be that as it may, the Messenger apps will be available for all users in the coming days. The Business on Messenger will take a little longer. Meanwhile, interested companies can register on this page to receive invitation to the tool.
