Almost two whole years after Facebook’s Graph Search launched on desktop the company announced it is finally bringing the feature to mobile devices.

Bing Makes Local Search More Intuitive With Google-Like Quick Answers by @mattsouthern

The local search features we’ve grown accustomed to using on Google are now making their way over to Bing, the company revealed in an announcement today. Now when you search for a local business on Bing, all the pertinent information such as phone number, address, store hours, and directions will be accessible at the top of the search results page. If you know the address you want to get to but just need directions, you can skip a step by typing in “Directions to…” and then the address. Similarly you can get estimated travel time to your location by typing […]

Facebook Makes It Easier To Clean Up Your News Feed

Facebook wants to make it easy for you to eliminate the junk in your Facebook news feed. On Friday, the social network announced deeper controls that help you remove posts and photos, and unfollow friends, groups or pages you like.

Now when you hide a story from your feed by clicking the top right drop-down menu, Facebook will give you the option to see less from the person or page, as well as the option to unfollow them entirely, so nothing they share will appear in the news feed.

In the news feed settings launched Friday, people or brands that appear most frequently in the news feed will show up at the top of the screen with an “unfollow” button next to them, and people you no longer follow will appear below, with the option to re-follow if you want them back in your feed.

Facebook has attempted to clean up the news feed with its own algorithms, putting greater emphasis on actual news stories and punishing the meme-sharing by making it appear lower in the news feed. But as more posts from friends and businesses appear on the Facebook, people may become inundated with garbage and clutter they don’t necessarily need to see.

With just a few taps, you can let Facebook know certain people or posts are unwelcome in your news feed—and if something’s no longer worth your time, you can push it out to make room for more of the endless stream of posts and photos all fighting for a place in the most important part of Facebook. 

The news feed settings are available today across desktop and mobile, and new options to hide or unfollow posts are rolling out in the coming weeks.

Bitcoin Mobile App Makes Cryptocurrency Convenient

Digital payments company Circle has just released a Bitcoin mobile app for iOS and Android.

Starting Monday, the app can be used to make payments, send or receive money, and convert money between Bitcoin and USD. The app is only available in the United States right now, but as CEO Jeremy Allaire indicates in the announcement, a global release will follow.

“We’re particularly excited about our Android release… because Android is becoming an important platform for finance on a worldwide basis,” he wrote. “Low-cost Android phones are coming to markets like India, Indonesia, and Africa, where the vast majority of users don’t have bank accounts, and where digital currency services could become a critical new utility.”

The cryptocurrency Bitcoin has been both lauded and panned for its pseudonymity, which keeps it from being a realistic currency alternative for those who are not tech savvy. Existing Bitcoin wallets sacrifice convenience for security, and if passwords are lost or forgotten, they can never be recovered. Not ideal for your life’s savings.

Circle’s native app may help to remedy some of these more high-tech edges of Bitcoin. For instance, the app uses multi-factor authentication and app-specific pin codes for easy access. Also, its iOS app will enable the use of password-retainer program 1Password, so people won’t need to remember a password.

You can try out the app for yourself on the Circle site.

Reddit Makes Crowdfunding Official With Redditmade

So far, Reddit’s business model has been to provide the tools while users do the rest. This pattern continues with Redditmade, the company’s first foray into crowdfunding.

“Redditmade gives you the flexibility to create almost anything you want, easily raise money, and support causes you care about,” wrote Kaela Worthen Gardner, marketing manager at Reddit, in the Redditmade official introductory post. “It’s also a great way for others to find awesome new products they’ll love and support other redditors while knowing their information and money will always be secure.”

Redditors already donate enormously to charity and buy and sell merchandise through community-driven efforts on subreddits—the sub-communities of the site. The difference with Redditmade is that users can protect their privacy in ways that third-party crowdfunding and charity sites don’t always permit.

“We will never show your personal information to anyone. We take doxxing seriously! If you create a campaign, you will be asked to connect your Reddit account with your Redditmade account and your username is what will be displayed,” Gardner wrote. “When you purchase a product, no one will ever see your personal information aside from payment/shipping providers in order to actually get you your product.”

Currently active campaigns on Redditmade consist mainly of T-shirts with inside jokes that pertain to different subreddits. So far, the one closest to reaching its goal, the Reddit Secret Santa Sticker Pack, is at 5%. It’s a charity project that will donate the entirety of its earnings to the winning Reddit charity, and since Redditmade has it listed as a “Featured Campaign,” you can tell it’s legit.

Reddit raised $50 million at a $500 million valuation last month and Redditmade comes as an effort to expand Reddit’s oeuvre as it expands its value and influence. Even with five billion monthly page views, the “front page of the Internet” still isn’t profitable. This could help.
