Facebook has launched a new dedicated page called “Memories” that will keep moments you shared with friends and family over the years at a single place.

It will include posts and photos, friends you have made and major life events over the years.

The new page is an expansion of existing Facebook features like “On This Day”.

“Every day more than 90 million people use ‘On This Day’ to reminisce about these moments they have shared on Facebook,” said Oren Hod, Product Manager at Facebook, in a blog post on Monday.

The new “Memories” page will have several sections.

The “Friends Made On This Day” section will include a list of friends you made on this date in the past, including special videos or collages that celebrate your friendversaries.

“Recaps of Memories” section will feature seasonal or monthly recaps of memories that have been bundled into a message or short video.

“Memories You May Have Missed” section will show you the posts that you might have missed from the past week.

“You can still access your memories through the ‘Memories’ bookmark either to the left of your News Feed on your computer or in the ‘more’ tab on the bottom right of your mobile app,” said Hod.

You can also access “Memories” through notifications and via messages in News Feed. (IANS)

Australia Proposes To Strengthen Regulations of Facebook, Google

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) on Monday proposed measures to counter the dominant market positions of Google and Facebook and strengthen monitoring on their access to information, advertising and consumers personal data.

The regulatory body, which recommended 11 preliminary measures in the report, was directed to conduct a public inquiry into the impact of digital search engines, social media platforms and other digital content in 2017 by then treasurer and current Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

“Acting as an intermediary between consumers and news outlets, platforms are inherently influential in shaping consumers’ choices of digital journalism,” said the report cited by Efe news.

This influential position and filtration of news items could place the consumer in a so-called filter bubble, increasing the risk of consumers being exposed to unreliable news, according to the report.

“The algorithms operated by each of Google and Facebook, as well as other policies, determine which content is surfaced and displayed to consumers in news feed and search results,” it said.

“The ACCC considers that the strong market position of digital platforms like Google and Facebook justifies a greater level of regulatory oversight,” Chair Rod Sims said.

The commission called for the creation of a regulatory authority with powers to monitor these digital platforms and recommended establishing an automatic mechanism to take down content that violates copyright.

The ACCC said consumers should be informed about the manner in which these platforms collect and use their data to create personalized advertising.

This would include a reform of privacy laws to require the user’s express consent to data collection and “enable consumers to require erasure of their personal information where they have withdrawn their consent”.

ACCC said that it found that “competition may have been distorted in multiple sectors where consumer data is used”.

In 2017, Google registered 90 per cent of search traffic originating from Australian desktops and 98 per cent from mobile phones. (IANS)
