A complaint has been registered in an Uttar Pradesh court against Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and three others for using national symbols and letter heads of President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi on its site without due permission.
Chief Judicial Magistrate Anand Prakash Singh on Wednesday set November 12 as the next date of hearing when the petitioner lawyer Omkar’s statement would be recorded.
Others named in the complaint are Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Product Officer Chris Cox, Facebook India Head Ajit Mohan.
The petitioner has further alleged that the social media giant runs an application which allows certain national symbols to be used without permission.
Facebook’s video calling device Portal will now work with just a WhatsApp account, allowing users to make video calls to friends and family and access features like “Story Time” even if they don’t have a Facebook account.
“Story Time” lets you bring children’s stories to life with Augmented Reality (AR) effects that change your appearance to match the characters.
“We’re adding new renditions of classic stories, ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ and ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’, plus new tales from Llama Llama, Pete the Cat and Otto,” Facebook said in a statement late Tuesday.
With Workplace on Portal, you can collaborate more effectively, building strong relationships with your co-workers, regardless of distance.
Portal TV brings the Portal experience to the biggest screen in people’s homes.
“Today’s update includes a number of new features for Portal TV. First up is Mic Drop, which lets you sing along with popular song clips and perform them on an AR stage during a call,” said Facebook.
Photo Booth is coming to Portal TV, so you can snap selfies and take videos, add effects and then share with people on Messenger from your TV.
“You can also send a video message if someone misses your call so you can share what’s on your mind in the moment, even when close friends and family aren’t available.
“You can even share photos from your Superframe feed through Messenger, so friends can see what you see and join the fun,” said Facebook.
Facebook said it is also adding access to thousands of shows and movies through new streaming partners on Portal TV, including Amazon Prime Video in the US, UK, Canada and France along with FandangoNOW and Sling TV, which were recently added in the US.
People can also livestream from Portal directly to their Facebook profile via Facebook Live. (IANS)
