How Facebook’s New Sound Notifications Could Boost Engagement

first_imgHear that? No? Well, that’s because Facebook is testing a new audio notification system to select members, and if you’re not one of the first batch of guinea pigs, all is still quiet on your profile. But if this feature catches on, you and the rest of Facebook’s billion networkers might soon hear a ping every time someone sends you a message, posts to your wall or tags you in a photo. And despite last week’s largely negative coverage about the new service by over-engaged journalists, Facebook insiders and some user interface and user experience (UI/UX) designers are calling it a boon for engagement.Lend Me An EarFacebook has used sound notifications for its chat tool since 2008, and its mobile messenger app also has sound. Both alert you to new messages.“There is user demand for sounds,” explained Brittany Darwell, the lead writer at Inside Facebook. “It makes sense to allow a sound option for other desktop notifications, too.” Darwell cites the recent Facebook sound bug in Apple iOS iPhones as an example of demand for improved audio on the site. She says people want the option to be informed aurally.“Some users want sound and are even upset when they don’t hear them,” Darwell said.  Sound Good?The new alert is an electronic bee-deep, like the one employed by Skype. Don’t worry, the Facebook tone can be turned off. It’s not known if the sound that Facebook has been testing ultimately will be used, much less if the feature itself will ever be rolled out to the public. “This is just a test with a small percentage of users,” said Meredith Chin, Facebook’s manager of corporate communications. “We’ll see how it goes before rolling it out.”More certain is the power of the sound. While some heavily connected Facebook users surely will be turned off by it, mid-level and casual users could become more engaged by this Pavlovian call to action. “It draws people back,” says Asher Hunt, head of mobile design at LivePerson Mobile. “The sound is a trigger point. People are addicted to these.” Hunt thinks the alert will keep Facebook members connected and strengthen their overall experience. He compares the alert to people walking through the cacophony of a casino:  “All it takes is hearing that sound once, and you’re back on the site.”  Testing 1, 2, 1, 2Here’s the alert in action: Related Posts adam popescu Tags:#Facebook#notification#social media#sound Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Photo courtesy of Shutterstock.

President’s Rule in Maharashtra will be an insult to people’s mandate, says Sanjay Raut

first_img“Despite being the single largest party (BJP), if you don’t form the government and instead rule the State under the guise of President’s Rule, it is wrong, unconstitutional and an insult to Maharashtra,” said senior Shiv Sena leader and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Raut while speaking to the media on Friday.Mr Raut has kept up the offensive against Sena ally BJP over the sharing of the Chief Minister post in the State. In another press conference on Friday morning, the day the Maharashtra Assembly is dissolved, he once again said the Shiv Sena was firm on its demand of equal sharing of the post.When asked about Hindutva leader Sambhaji Bhide or senior BJP leader Nitin Gadkari intervening in the deadlock, Mr Raut said, “There is no need for intervention. They should bring a written proposal for equal sharing of CM post. If Gadkariji has such a proposal, I will convey it to Uddhavji.”Speaking about the Congress moving its MLAs to Jaipur, Mr Raut said, “If there are concerns of horse-trading, it is a challenge to Maharashtra and to the PM’s dream of clean and transparent governance.”Mr Raut had tweeted a couplet by former BJP PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee. Elaborating on it, he said, “We will not leave the battleground, we are fighters. This is our Maharashtra. Why is there fear (of horse-trading)? No matter what pattern you use here, it won’t work, we are together.”When asked why the Sena was not reaching out to the BJP, he said, “Why should we? Even Amit Shah knows what was agreed upon.”He said Sena leaders will meet the Governor again as he was now guardian of the State but it was the single largest party that needed to stake claim to government formation first.“There is a conspiracy to form an interim government and rule under the guise of President’s rule. That will be an insult to the mandate given by people,” said Mr Raut.Meanwhile, the Shiv Sena legislators who were lodged in Hotel Rangsharda in Mumbai on Thursday, spent the night there and continued to stay put. Currently, there are two luxury buses stationed outside the hotel, leading to speculation of Shiv Sena moving its MLAs elsewhere later in the day. Around noon, party chief Uddhav Thackeray took a meeting of all district and taluka leaders of Shiv Sena to provide relief to flood affected farmers. Following the meeting, there is speculation of Mr Thackeray coming to meet the MLAs at the hotel.last_img read more

Jim Harbaugh Asked A Recruit To Play For Michigan The Same Way The Recruit Asked His Date To Prom

first_imgJim Harbaugh with a weird sign.New Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh is getting rather creative in his attempts to land four-star defensive tackle recruit Boss Tagaloa. Harbaugh, who really seems to be embracing social media the past few months, found a photo of Tagaloa asking his date to prom. Harbaugh then copied the format to ask Tagaloa to play for Michigan. You can’t make this stuff up.Prom with this butt head @_BT75— Sof (@sofmorales13) March 11, 2015I usually don’t tweet things like this, so forgive me but this is just really too funny not to! haha #ImDone— Boss Tagaloa (@_BT75) March 14, 2015We have no idea if this is going to work, but it’s clear that he’s got Tagaloa’s attention. Sometimes bizarre tactics like this can be the difference.last_img read more
