Arianna Huffington has announced The HuffPost Streaming Network, a 24/7 live-streaming TV network to launch this summer and feature 12 hours of original programming, five days a week. The network will spotlight the biggest, hottest, most engaging stories HuffPost is covering at any given moment and use them for conversations, commentary, and comedy.
Skype for Windows version 5.8 is out, bringing several interesting features, including full HD video-calling, group screen sharing and Facebook integration. But you will need to have a HD webcam to enjoy the Full HD video calls. On the other hand, video calling for Facebook works even with users who don’t use Skype.
Country Manager for Google Kenya, Olga Arara-Kimani, was reportedly fired last week, following investigations over allegations of data scraping and misrepresentation of Kenyan start-up, Mocality. Now, she claims the decision to leave Google was hers alone.What I think? She was asked to resign or get fired. She chose to resign.
President Obama’s re-election campaign announced this week that it will begin using the mobile device credit card reader attachment Square to accept campaign donations. My take: Mobile payments is about to change political fundraising, but whether this tool can be used in African politics is yet to be seen.
Google’s social network, Plus has just over 75,000 users in Nigeria since its launch in June 2011, according to a recent report. But it seems that Google+ growth is very slow or stalled when compared to Facebook growth between June 2011 to December 2011. Facebook has added about 700,000 users, while Google+ only has an estimated 75,000 users in Nigeria since June 2011.
According to reports, Google has fired its Country Lead for Kenya, Olga Arara-Kimani, following investigations over allegations of data scraping and misrepresentation of Kenyan start-up, Mocality. Although, there’s no official Google statement yet, I think that an “appropriate action” from Google would mean firing those responsible or involved with the Mocality data scrap saga.
The National Sports Commission (NSC) reportedly spent N1.2 million in opening a Facebook account. Just so happens that opening a Faceboook account doesn’t cost a dime. My take: it is possible the Commission may have hired a consultant to create and manage the page for a fee or another smart way of embezzling funds.
