Infographic: How Facebook Makes Money?

Written on July 25, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Comments Off

Check out OBizMedia's Infographic that shows how Facebook makes money.

Google+ is designed not only for the purpose of helping web users. In one way or another, it is also created to battle with the social site — Facebook.

The two giants may have common goals, but the way of how they earn money has a very huge difference.

Since the debut of Google, they aim for nothing than providing people with only the right and immediate answers for their queries. They became successful in this industry because they have been the platform for both individuals and businesses to attain certain goals. Through Google’s services, they let people reach opportunities, and allow opportunities to find people. With the right mixture of connections and discovery, the search engine giant may be able to make $25 billion per year through AdWords.

On the other hand, Facebook holds a simpler attitude with regards to this matter, as implied by OBizMedia’s infographics posted after the cut.

Written on July 20, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Comments Off

Google will now be using its search results pages to warn people about a recently identified form of malware.

Browsing through the web is said to be the easiest way to access instant information.

Recently, search engine giant – Google – found a piece of malware that’s generating unusual traffic to its servers. The company immediately responded to the attack by warning all of its users.

Written on May 04, 2011 by R. Depp

Comments Off

Looks like RIM is ditching Google for Microsoft’s Bing.

Microsoft CEO, Steve Ballmer, confirmed during the Research In Motion’s (RIM) Blackberry World conference in Florida that RIM has partnered with the computier giant. Since yesterday, Microsoft’s Bing will be the default search and map application for BlackBerry smartphones.

Bing’s search and mapping technology will include location-based services. Furthermore, the Bing-Blackberry partnership will also include voice search and Street View-esque maps, all to be integrated at an OS level.

According to Mashable, the continuing impact of a Microsoft/RIM deal for search might be minimal, but this partnership may also lead to more collaboration points between the two companies in the future.

A World Without Google

Written on April 10, 2011 by Chris Martin

Comments Off

Trees of green, red roses, too. We see them blue, and Google does too. So we think to ourselves, what would the world be like without the search giant turned Internet icon?

There’s no denying that Google is already attached to our online DNA. Whether we surf the web, check our e-mails, create documents, or stalk our friends, the company has grown far beyond from its humble beginnings as a search engine with only a search bar and a couple of buttons as an interface.

But have you ever imagined what would the world be like if Google never came to be? What company back in the late 90’s would have the courage to step out of the comfort zone of a convoluted, disorganized world wide web and turn it to what Google has done over the past few years? Quite a shoe to fill, huh?

Well people over at SingleGrain Internet Marketing Blog managed to fulfill the task for us, as they create an infographic on what the world would be like without Google. Check it out after the break.

Google Fires Employee for Accessing Private Data

Written on September 15, 2010 by B Waldorf

Comments Off

Google confirms that they fired another employee. This is the second time for such incident and we hope this would be the last.

Google repeats history. Just today, the search titan confirmed that they fired one of their engineers due to violation on internal security policies. Former employee David Barksdale used his clearance to access private data of multiple people including four minors. He was dismissed for the offense and Google said that it is “significantly increasing the amount of time we spend auditing our logs to ensure those controls are effective”.

Google confirmed that it is the second that such incident happened. The previous case, however didn’t include minors but the culprit was also dismissed. Google has been here for ten years, serving the globe and the world wide web. They employ more than 20,000 people as of the moment. It is still quite a dismay that things like this happen.

With all fairness to Google, they confirmed the rumors and released a statement. High hopes that this won’t happne again.

Written on August 16, 2010 by Japhet Writ

1 person

According to the Google AdWords Keyword Tool, the word "best" is included in 277 million searches every month. So a search engine that can tell you what's the best in almost everything and anything under the sun is helpful, right? Can FindTheBest.com really answer your biggest query?

The idea of a search engine that can tell users what is the best is enough for Kevin O’ Conner to get our of his retirement. The co-founder of Doubleclick started to build a search engine just like that — hence, the birth of FindTheBest.com. But how do you create an engine that can answer a number of “best” queries? The key is “comparison apps”. It’s a hand-built chart that compare two or more choices side by side. The comparison points are picked by humans and scours the internet for a reputable source. So more or less, FindTheBest.com is more of a decision engine than a search query site.

Google makes life easier with the drag-and-drop function on Gmail.

Google saves the day! Saving file attachments from your e-mail had been tiresome for lazy bones out there. But with Gmail? We’re happy as a bee because it’s hassle-free.

Google has added a new feature to Gmail that lets you drag-and-drop attachments to your desktop. If you click on the Download link for your attachment you’ll see the new text prompting the “drag the file to desktop” instead of downloading the attachment. Cool, isn’t?

We tried the new feature and yes it’s good. Its easy to use. The glitch is, it’s only available to Google Chrome.

Google started adding drag-and-drop last April. A month after, it can also be used on images as well. Thumbs up Google!
