Google sends to the company website from a search on Facebook and to fewer people. It has to do with "Search Plus Your World" changes? Probably not. Personally, I take it positively, Pages (Pages) from Facebook were still unnecessarily high ranking in the search. A TIMELINE no longer forms a valuable source of information.”

On Friday 1st June, Facebook faced with problems of access to international media and the information considered one of the most important messages. Perhaps, it has added to Anonymous. But, as it is for Anonymous, they reject any involvement. See Anonymous blamed for Facebook outage, group denies Involvement.

Facebook Launched App Center Marketplace with Applications

Abhijit roy in Social mediaUnsuccessful attempt to compete AppStore and Google android market is failing to play a major shortcoming. Facebook does not own mobile platform. App Center is only a useful tool for standard applications. But much will depend on how the market will maintain and update Facebook.

 Bad language claims that every company will have its own AppStore, a marketplace with applications. And sometimes it is even happening quite a lot of indications. Facebook launched App Center - www.facebook.com/AppCenter  in an effort to better visibility of mobile applications (especially games) and a classic application (again, mostly games, but occasionally you will find among them some useful things for Timeline or connect with the world outside of Facebook).

Facebook App Center can be a very important part of the puzzle hypothetical Facebook Phone - there is no trade in your own applications that can not circumvent. Unfortunately, to make something work, Facebook would actually have to have real mobile platform. In the current form of the App Center can find applications provided both free and paid - while paying option is new, so far not been possible to deliver applications on Facebook in this way.
Facebook Appcenter Mobile Application
For users of mobile phones the App Center is rather complicated, no direct installation is possible here. Everything is done via the "Send to Mobile" - the user receives a link that leads to the web rather absurdly- and if lucky, after opening the page in mobile browser to another application by reference to Apple's AppStore and Google Play from Google. The real form but click on "Send to Mobile" and become anything - you know that in classical Facebook mobile application can be found (in warnings) for further instructions. The App Center so you can browse the catalog of mobile applications (such as Instagram), but that's it. Unfortunately, the Facebook application does not know whether the version you currently have for your phone. You may find that your phone is simply not available.
Instagram in Facebook Appcenter, Abhijit Roy in Instagram
Since the announcement in the form " Application Spotify is now ready to use on your mobile device. Start using it to get an application, unfortunately, very long and breakneck way. The browser opens, there Spotify.com the page, there are only a reference to the application to Google Play. And because we are in CR and in this particular case you finish the " No results found ". 

Web applications in the App Center can be found easily and can also use them without a problem - here it is no novelty for the classical applications that run on Facebook have long and App Center can offer here in the form of useful things to list the most common views, recommendations or overview of applications, which currently growing interest.
Currently in the App Center can be found approximately 600 applications (in the AppStore and Google Play hundreds of thousands of applications you can find). and not at all clear how Facebook actually ensure that the App Center was not seen - because traditionally not much - the rest of the Facebook account of the very existence of the App Center does. And Apps and Games, where users have seen and discovered applications, still looks the same. No change, even so small that there was information about the presence of the App Center.
App Center should of course be available in the mobile phone, but you may need to wait for an application update, version for Android, even after application of fresh App Center does not offer yet. And hopefully the phone after finding the wanted applications do not find themselves again on the same Web page as you use the "Send to mobile" from the web version.

What do you think Facebook App Center?
It's a good catalog and web applications for users of Facebook can be helpful. Especially the fact that they can more easily find the applications and see what other people use. For mobile applications App Center is unusable and clearly shows that Facebook is on the cell phones simply one of the other applications and can not offer anything that could be well used and made sense. Which is logical, Facebook is here trying to duplicate the App Store and Google Play and information about applications and games, it lacks too much information.
Pinterest in Facebook AppcenterSo far we know nothing even about the specific conditions for developers, it is unknown as many will use their Facebook Censors traditional approaches. How, for example, will show promise in the form of " You'll only see high quality apps in the App Center, based on user ratings and engagement "? So that in the App Center will see only high-quality applications and that it will be based on user markings and user involvement.

And when can we expect the first cases of abuse more App Center, the discovery of security vulnerabilities, releases information about users of applications. It just seems that what you all for now "new" Facebook passed by. We do not know when the App Center will be available in other countries, has traditionally been run as "U.S. only".

Whether it is for the time being however, the Facebook application catalog severely lacks for a long time. And all previous attempts have not led to anything applicable. And if one day a real Facebook will have Facebook Phone, it's time to start working on your own "AppStore".
