Facebook is going to let publishers start charging readers to view stories.

I consider this to be “BAD NEWS” for those of us that are struggling to make a living in this ever increasing world of stupidity. This new service will affect every user of the Facebook platform.

“The social network has started briefing publishers on the forthcoming subscription service and hopes to start testing it by October, according to a person familiar with the matter. – Facebook is currently telling publishers they’ll be able to show at least 10 free articles per month before the paywall kicks in.”

Source link is at the end of this article, for more about this breaking news.

I’ll be the first to admit, I’m not always the sharper tool in the shed -but- if I’m understanding this correctly, if you want to go to a link of a media outlet (TV media, on-line Newspaper) you will have to pay a fee. This is bad news.

Or if I’m understanding this as – since I have two website’s (www.thinkr8.comwww.amerispheresoftware.wordpress.com) and two Fb page’s linking to those websites, and you the reader here in Fb see my post from any one of my Fb page’s and want to link to the website article, you’ll have to pay a fee to me. And if that’s the case, then “Great” I would start to make on-line money. Cause as it stands now, you don’t (yes, some have, thank you) support my on-line endeavor’s. Having said that, if the latter is correct then I’m all for the up and coming new subscription service.

Another funny thing I noticed about this news – I googled it, and there were no links to any tech sites, (Tech Crunch, PCWorld, C|Net, Computerworld, etc.) only local tv station across the states. Weird, very weird.

Facebook releases 360-degree vid of Grand Central

Facebook is showing us the future.

The social media giant just released a stunning 360-degree video of Manhattan’s Grand Central Terminal. The three-minute clip allows viewers to mouse around to look in all directions inside the 42nd Street train stop.

It’s the first 360 video that Facebook has produced and filmed using the new Surround 360 camera. You can tilt your phone to experience different moments happening around you in the terminal. Turn up the sound to know where to look. It’s a preview of what a full-length virtual reality movie will feel like. Instead of watching the action, you’ll be right in the middle of it.
