How Facebook really worth?

With profit stands at nearly a billion dollars in 2011, where social networking is expected to turn in the next year and whether Zuckerberg will allow the issue?

Reviews and rumors in recent days that run on Facebook’s welfare concerns the first three quarters of 2011 which stands at more than 700 million dollars. This amount is expected to grow following the financial data of the last quarter of 2011.


How much you worth to Facebook?

If you ever wondered how much you worth to Facebook, there may be an answer to this question. Probably every user account on Facebook is equal to about one dollar of profit, after deducting the company’s expenses.

Facebook, the world’s largest social network, making giant strides not only become the first social network with a billion users, but also one of the most profitable.


Advertising is money

Advertising is money, and hand washes. Advertisers buy advertising rights within Facebook to get to them a billion users, that half of them join the social network every day. Facebook is no problem to allow the various advertisements, and does not bother her to take your picture and use it to advertise various brands. So it makes identification of the various users with advertisers’ brands through, and one part of the equation enters the other side, when the primary winner is the winner of the process, ie – Facebook.

Total control of Facebook in the ring virtual created, where people enjoy sharing with each other information, photos, status updates, locations, videos, games, and more, allows Facebook set the tone, and as we spend more time social networking, and performed more tasks, She likes us more. Therefore, Facebook is worth making an effort to make its social network where you will spend as much screen time your daily browsing.


Cash Cache

When armed with a growing cache of cash, Facebook is currently the situation, more than ever, which she could not afford to go shopping and buy competing companies, and companies that complement the services it has to offer. On the face, the purchase of start-ups with dedicated technologies have come up for consideration are important, by default, but, if she will wait a little and earn a larger sum, it can threaten even the companies entirely different magnitude.

Goldman Sachs clients must be happy leaking. If the information prove to be true, it might suggest that the company is in much better shape than it was at the beginning of 2011, and 2012 looks at this as a very positive year for Facebook, financially. In practice, whether the company will soon go IPO? Mark probably would wait with it some more.

Requested the information from Facebook, received 1200 PDF files

An interesting issue related to privacy with Facebook is now Europe. The world’s largest social network keeps your information, even after you delete it.

Commissioner of the EU’s privacy will be forced soon to check out Facebook’s conduct practices with your personal information. The information you share social network, whether you erase it or not, there is still Facebook’s archives, and does not need backup. Affair, began with requesting information under the European law of 24 year student, who wanted a copy of the information that up for him.

Legal arena

Legal arena, those of you who have read recently released the Facebook’s terms and conditions must be noted that the company divides its global operations into two parts: the United States and Ireland. All social network users in the United States who are communicating, contractual, with the American Facebook. Residents of the rest of the world interact with Facebook Ireland, there is Facebook’s European center and also in other European bodies.

One reason might be made up for open its main European branch specifically in Ireland, over tax breaks, is the existence of some EU institutions there, next to European centers of many international companies and others.

The information belongs to the social network

Up for information on each of its users. It starts with the information you enter to open your account continues to personal information, dates of birth and on to any piece of information network ever you raise. Some things are obvious, like photos and status updates. Facebook also stores the information on those things done ‘Lake’, those things officially shared with other people, and of course your interaction within the network, whether it directly with advertisers or other users.

In fact, several years ago revealed a problematic practice of Facebook employees, who used to get statistics of people they know, or a celebrity. Facebook has learned that even after following your browsing in Facebook, and some profile and who you went, what day and time it was, and how many times did you do that.

This information is only a tip of the iceberg in terms of information that Facebook collects about you. In fact, very possible that Facebook collects information about you even if you do not have Facebook yet. The information you need is to get your friends, acquaintances and relatives, who leaves, with or without realizing it, your personal information when they raise their information. How often did you discover that someone else put your picture on Facebook? Even if he did not tag you, it is still more common than you think.

Indirect information (EXIF, META)

Facebook also collects information indirectly, the common user of the social network did not aware that he provides her. For example, all pictures taken with digital camera, including that from your total and specific information, stored in the EXIF ​​tags. This information includes the name of the camera, when the video camera data, and will also include your coordinates if you have not canceled this possibility.

Incidentally, it may also state your attach your camera serial number when she shoots a picture. Thus, every image you upload to Facebook, you provide not only a picture of how you look, and how people close to you look, but you give her a lot more information. With a collection of points geotagged, for example, pinpointing network can be made relating to entertainment and living habits of the user, and find information related to lifestyle.


Advertisers compare information

All this information is a goldmine for Facebook. Why? Because it has a monopoly on advertising within Facebook. Is a control unit, because that created a private space run – her hand, and she determines to whom it allows to publish, and who does not. In addition, the company can offer advertisers additional service fee, which she will show advertisers just for people interested in the product or service.

For example, we know that products are often the man did not interest women, and vice versa. But, Facebook can offer advertisers far beyond identifying the sex of the user. She knows what his age, what his habits, since it connects to Facebook and have the buttons of Facebook, the collections of most information about the largest sites online today. She also knows where he works, and what are his interests. She knows that to compare them to those areas of his friends, and then offer him a product of his friends loved, or even just click the link to be interested and find out information.

This information is worth a lot of money to advertisers, because they can concentrate and display targeted advertisements to Facebook users, and – thereby significantly increasing the chances you click a link and maybe move on to purchase a product or service they are trying to advertise.


Europe sober up

Europe has recently awakened from a nightmare, when a law student from Vienna, decided he wanted to run right by Hdrktiva European, and require Facebook to send him all the information that has it. Hdrktiva European Continental allows every citizen to demand it from Facebook, to check the integrity of that information and whether it is true or accurate.

That student, Max flattening (Max Schrems) from Vienna, asked Facebook in a copy of all information to be up for it. After a while, he received a CD with a PDF file from 1200 that include all the information that up for him (see also the attached video).

One of the main problems arise from the Max, is that Facebook continued to keep her a copy of the information that is already deleted in the past. Strange thing, because apparently, after the user removes the information from the site, the only reason that Facebook should keep this information, if any, is to backup, or in accordance with national law. Since local law relevant here is the European Court, it is unclear what led to the Facebook to keep the personal information of Max, who had already been deleted, with her, and her use.

As happened in similar cases, here too hard to tell in advance which way it goes. Commissioner of the EU’s privacy may receive the request, and to investigate the issue with Facebook. Facebook may voluntarily consider changing the policy manual, or she’ll try to eliminate this issue under the surface.

Meanwhile, the world, specifically Europe, waiting to see how to develop the case, and how you choose to Facebook respond to revelations that she stores the information of users, it clearly states that the terms of use continues to be one of them or her own needs, and whether users have any way of getting her to delete their information from Facebook permanently.

Facebook becomes a virtual ID card

According to a new study, it appears that most internet users choose to subscribe to external sites with social networking. Is your information is exposed to everyone and did that affect you?

Quite a few sites we visit recently offering us make the application using an account in one social network to which we are already registered.

Despite the accessibility and conveniences it offers, how many users actually choose to connect your account Facebook their any other site on the web? And how does this affect your privacy?

Social recognition

Must have left you come across a site once you register the applicant to send you updates, to know the details or just so you can enter it – if so far chosen not to use the button connection through Facebook, you’re probably in the minority. According to a study conducted by the company Sociable Labs – About 56 percent of users are experiencing, please register through Facebook – confirms this. But what does that actually mean?

The fact that an extensive network users choose to allow third party access to their private information, says mainly that they are not afraid to privacy or information to their site can access. On the other hand, research also suggests that only 2.8 percent of users to fully complement the registration process through the social network.

Although the percentage of completion seem particularly low, Sociable Labs shows for comparison the percentage of click-through buttons on the Lake – 0.1 to 0.2 percent. The company goes on to explain that as long as the sites did not interfere with their design or build the entire user experience around the worker must register with a social network – the connection between the two can not hurt, but only help sites, as well as users by saving time and presenting a simple and easy .

Where it goes?

I think that the fact that the information of users can be also available to external sites stopped bothering them long ago. Now, the main consideration browsing new sites is convenience – whether they can enter with their existing accounts on social networks, or they must carry out all re-registration process? Although until now, especially online shopping sites users would keep as much privacy – for fear they will steal some details, now very few web surfers think about it, or at least that’s the picture that emerges.

While one can assume that the future of Registration can be enough for us to enter any other site on the Web – we think, what is the price we would have to pay in terms of privacy? Could it be that the future had to struggle much more precisely to open a false identity on the network, compared to the ease with which we can do it today?

Facebook helps users to contact

Facebook introduces a new feature that is in beta, allows users to communicate privately with with Pages. Is this the end of public complaints?

If you did you make contact with a brand page on Facebook, surely you understand the power of a complaint or Paragon advertising on public wall. But what happened if you wanted to call my husband in the privacy page to contact you? I think that Facebook is working on an answer just that question.

Privacy for users

Facebook has confirmed this week it was looking a new option will allow users to communicate privately with pages of social networking. Feature, apparently read Private Messages for Pages where users and owners of the pages to personal dialogue with each other information, so other users on the brand can not be witnessed.

Thus, a user who has encountered a problem or would like to clarify a certain matter with a top, would not have to write the appeal in public – sending a private message will not create “News” feed-General and would produce the effect that Facebook and of course my husband would want to produce pages. If users choose to praise a company through a detail – pages may lose the positive effect of involvement in the crowd and not be able to show their willingness to help the sight of all, as well as miss out on the advertising that appears feed user, who knows that he did Like brand specific or wrote him a certain.

Those pages will be able to choose whether they want to receive private messages or not. If you tolerate this – users can turn to them in private, even if they did not Like the page. It is important to note that the page owners can not initiate private conversations, unless users have commented or posted on their wall – or initiated the communication.

While it may seem that the world are afraid of losing the positive effect pages, it seems that in Israel the companies will be happy to open the option and use it as much as possible. Widely thought that some of the messages posted on their pages of service providers are actually negative and brand managers can now “force” users to share the story more privately and not with everyone.

Balance of Power

Last September, Facebook removed the option to update pages which my husband was able to send mass messages to all the people who made them Like. While that’s a good way for brand owners to talk with their clients, it seems that the users has never been an easy way to communicate privately with with the top – unless opened a special tab for so requesting them to send mail or request.

While the service is currently in its early beta stages and not yet known when released to the public, Facebook is indeed confirmed the news and tells you just check the new feature. It now seems that there is a positive step for users, but rather for that page – but had to wait and see how companies choose to implement it, if at all.
