The LinkedIn Eye Test: Is LinkedIn Becoming Like Facebook?

Comments

LinkedIn Eye Test

This is just a random thought, but has your LinkedIn stream started to look increasingly like Facebook? It seems that as the social network becomes more mainstream, more people are posting pictures, personal status updates and sometimes straight up spam. Take for example the above Eye Test that has been circulating LinkedIn. It has about 1,200 Likes and 15,000 comments. Do people actually think this has some meaning with regards to your career? As though seeing the word “TEAM” means you’re good at working in teams or something. It will be interesting to see if LinkedIn starts to crack down on this stuff or it’s just inevitable when a social network gets to a certain size. God help us if Quiz apps and Celeb Trivia ever comes to LinkedIn.

BlackBerry 10 Missing Facebook Integration in Games Due to Webview Issue

Comments

If you’re developing a game for BlackBerry 10, you may be interested to know that, as far as our research can tell, there is no way to integrate native facebook APIs into your games on BlackBerry 10. The problem stems from the fact that integrating facebook natively, that is to use the official APIs from facebook, requires that you have a Webview that will let you pass an authentication token between the game and facebook. This feature doesn’t currently exist on BlackBerry 10, meaning any developer that relies heavily on facebook for friend invites is not supported. Inviting friends via facebook, for some games, is a crucial marketing tool that RIM should really be addressing ahead of launch.
