Here’s what I see on my end if I click downvote, but since I don’t know anyone else with the feature I don’t know what it might look on their end. #FacebookDownvote
These Technologies are already available, but by the 2020’s they will become mainstream. The world is evolving so fast that it is not surprising to see a rapid advancement in Technology.
1- Self Driving Cars:
Yes, few car industries such as Nissan, Mercedez Benz have already announced the introduction of their Self Driving Cars in 2020 and they will be mainstream in select cities around the world. These cars will Navigate streets without the need for a driver and therefore safer travel and smarter traffic control
2 – Digital Assistants:
This is an already existing technology that will become more popular in the 2020’s. In involves making your smartphone smart enough such that, after giving it all your personal info, it should be able to tell you what you should be doing, and when you should be doing it.
3- Virtual Reality:
Virtual reality is an artificial environment that is created with software and presented to the user in such a way that the user suspends belief and accepts it as a real environment. On a computer, virtual reality is primarily experienced through two of the five senses: sight and sound. This technology is already available but will become even more popular from the 2020’s
4.Clothing could give people superhuman skills in the next 10 years.
The most obvious example of this is the exoskeleton suit, Pearson said. Hyundai recently created an exoskeleton suit that can make heavy lifting easier.
But Pearson said he can also envision other kinds of advanced clothing, like leggings that make it easier to walk and run. Or a Spiderman-like suit made with Polymer gels that can improve strength.
A drone will be able to deliver products in 2025. As you know drones are a very popular invention. Nowadays, the drone is used for video recording and we call it drone camera. So in the coming years, the drone will use for delivery products. It will deliver products automatically by setting GPS.
But I would like to tell you that it will not be used for delivering pizza, clothes etc. It will use for delivering packages in the hospital in an emergency situation or in a war for first aid etc.
But 2025 is too late for this technology, probably it will be started in the recent years by 2018, its worth mentioning that drone deliveries are already started in some parts of the world. DelivAir has already started this. Japan also has finalized proposal on drone deliveries. A project reported in February used disposable cardboard drones for medical supplies in San Fransisco.
Facebook is testing a new feature to let you quickly report abusive comments to the company.
On Thursday, a mysterious option called “downvote” began to appear over the platform. Only a select number of Facebook users have access to it, but the function is found on any comment made on public page posts.
Despite the name, the feature is nothing like Reddit’s own downvoting option, which can demote questionable content further down the comment section. Facebook’s own spin on the downvoting is more about flagging inappropriate or offensive content.
Currently, a user can report an abusive comment over the platform by clicking on the “…” next to it and selecting “Hide comment.” Facebook will then let you alert the company about the post, but the whole process isn’t exactly intuitive. (On the mobile app, you can do so by holding down on a comment, and then selecting report.)
In contrast, the company’s downvoting feature gives you a clearer avenue to complain about a comment. Once clicked, the option will automatically hide the comment from view and ask why you had a problem with it. Four answers are given including offensive, misleading, off-topic and other.
Still, Facebook created some confusion with the test feature by naming it “downvote.” This prompted speculation that the company was about to take a page from Reddit and implement actual comment downvoting.
Facebook stressed the function is nothing akin to a dislike button.
“We are not testing a dislike button,” the company said in an email. “We are exploring a feature for people to give us feedback about comments on public page posts.”
Christina Hudler, who lives in Jacksonville, N.C., was among the Facebook users who noticed the mysterious feature pop up on Thursday. She too thought the test feature was similar to Reddit’s downvoting function.
Nevertheless, Hudler said abusive comments can be problematic on Facebook. She herself is the owner of a social media marketing agency called Hudler Social.
“Right now when people see an irrelevant or nasty comment all they can do is angry react or leave a comment,” she told PCMag. “And those things actually push it up in the comments.”
Whether Facebook will make the downvoting feature official one day is unclear, but the company has vowed to make the platform better for society. It intends to do so by curbing abuse over the platform and making sure it can build online communities as opposed to wasting people’s time.
On 6 February 2018, it emerged that OLX, an African e-commerce platform, has shut down all its offices in Africa except the one in South Africa. The company, which is owned by Multinational media group and investor Naspers, has thus shut down operations in Nigeria, Ghana, and Kenya, according to a report by Nigerian Communications Week.
OLX is a global classifieds platform, which has a physical presence in nearly 40 countries.
According to a report by Innovation Village, the staff working within the offices were informed about the closure on 6 February 2018 and are expected to fully move out by the end of March 2018. OLX will reportedly still be present in these countries but will be run remotely, the Nigerian and Kenyan websites of OLX are still up and running.
Speaking to TechpointNG, Sjoerd Nikkelen, CEO of OLX in Asia, Middle East, and Africa confirmed that OLX has indeed shut down physical operations in Nigeria. He, however, made no mention of Kenya or Ghana.
“We made a difficult but important decision in Nigeria to consolidate our operations between some of our offices internationally. Our marketplace will continue to operate here — uninterrupted — as it has since 2010, and we remain committed to the many people here who use our platform to buy and sell every month. We continue to be focused on constantly innovating to make sure that OLX remains the top classifieds platform in the country. Of course, we are committed to helping our affected colleagues during this transition and have already offered them meaningful financial and other support. As we’ve expressed to them directly, we are extremely grateful for their many significant contributions to OLX’s success,” said Nikkelen.
Kenya has finalized payment for its 4G LTE license Kenya. The telecom operator paid $25 million license fee for the 4G LTE 800 MHz signal.
Airtel Kenya has not yet officially launched the high-speed network, but it has been testing the signal across the country since April 2017 with an aim to grow sites covered by the spectrum to 65 sites. In October 2017, the company applied to extend its 4G trial license.
Airtel is the second telco in Kenya to acquire a full 4G license after Safaricom which acquired 4G in January of 2017 after a two-year trial phase.
“We are in the process of rolling out 4G and we expect to officially launch soon. We are driving towards the fastest speeds at the most affordable rates in Kenyan market with Airtel 4G.
Customers with 4G-enabled phones together with 4G SIM cards are now able to experience our 4G network in various parts of Nairobi,” said Airtel Kenya.
Telkom Kenya and Jamii Telecom have also rolled out 4G for home broadband and mobile telecommunications respectively in a bid to increase their market share.
Data from CA shows that during the June-September period Airtel Networks Limited recorded a market share of 15.7 percent in mobile data subscriptions, second to Safaricom’s 76 percent market share.
The Authority has been keen to switch to the high-speed 4G network from 3G, saying it will enable the telcos to offer broadband-based TV broadcasts.
