How Twitter Verifying the Accounts

“One of the many fascinating things about this diagram is that it shows which accounts tend to follow those outside their category,” Twitter’s blog post reads. “For example, the reason that blue and purple almost seem to merge into one another is that journalists tend to follow politicians, and vice versa. The same is true of TV and music, down in the bottom right, with musicians and TV stars following each other often.”

Yahoo started to boost on their second quarter

marissa-mayer-headshot

Leading tech blog Mashable says that yahoo reached the margin on in their second quarter. No one thought  thought Marissa Mayer can do this change, recently yahoo starts to take over the most of the top running companies like thumblr. Yahoo reported earnings of $0.35 share on revenue of $1.07 billion after ad commissions, a revenue decline of 7% over last year. Analysts were expecting earnings of $0.30 a share on revenue of $1.08 billion. As expected, Yahoo reported a 11% decline in display advertising revenue compared to the same period last year. Yahoo sold about the same number of ads, but its price per ad fell 12%. Total display revenue amounted to $423 million. Search revenue increased 5% to $418 million. Paid clicks were up 21%, but its price-per-click declined 8%.

Now Yahoo starts to do better now so up coming day we can see some good competition (Yahoo vs Google) in the tech market. In particular, Mayer highlighted the fact that Yahoo now has 340 million active mobile users and has grown its mobile team by a factor of six in the past 12 months, going from “dozens” to “hundreds,” thanks in part to Yahoo’s acquisition of 16 companies.

Now Google, Facebook Going to some more hard to move the game fwd.  For now Yahoo doing better but Google running first in the race, we want to wait and see for some time yahoo can do better than Google or fb going to take over these to companies.

One important change you should know about is that Latitude and check-ins are no longer part of the new Google Maps app, and will be retired from older versions on August 9. We understand some of you still want to see your friends and family on a map, which is why we’ve added location sharing and check-ins to Google+ for Android (coming soon to iOS). More details about Latitude and check-in changes can be found in our help center.

The offline maps feature for Android is also no longer available. Instead we’ve created a new way for you to access maps offline by simply entering “OK Maps” into the search box when viewing the area you want for later. Finally, My Maps functionality is not supported in this release but will return to future versions of the app. People who want to create powerful custom maps can still do so with Maps Engine Lite on desktop.

*The new Google Maps for mobile is compatible with Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean Android devices and iOS 6+ when available. Please note some of the features mentioned in this post aren’t available in all countries.
