Update 2: Facebook announced today that the changes are rolling out. With the new design, you can view stories by News feed (what Facebook deems the most interesting stories in your feed) or Live feed (everything in real-time).
Why they did it:
Facebook's Raylene Yung explains: "While seeing real-time activities is extremely valuable, we also want to be sure you don't miss other interesting content. After hearing feedback from many of you and exploring some new designs, we decided with today's changes to move what you used to see in Highlights from the right-hand side to the News Feed view in the main column so you can more easily engage with both views."
This year after Ebay sold 65% of Skype for $1.9 billion and regardless they seem to be unstoppable. But is this a short rise that will deaply stagger down. Personally I think that with over half a million users itâ€™s very difficult to go backwards. I mean that is roughly 8.3% of the worlds population of 6 billion people.
Together with the legal battle Ebay are facing and the fight for Skype , Ebay are doing all they can to keep the user base up so that they will have some chance at winning their case. But what I find most interesting about all this is that they are being sued for the GI software source code which Skype is running off and that they have not paid for the license and have modified the code. It sounds like a real rat race to me.
It always seems big companies are being sued when they are on the rise or when they are doing extremly well. This means that they have more money to be sued with. They obviously were patient enough to wait up until now. What are your predictions?
