Analysts sour on Facebook after Zynga's downbeat  outlook   

Facebook typically keeps 30% of the revenue from those payments and passes the  remaining 70% on to the app developer. But that partnership has a flip side: Bad news  for Zynga also means bad news for Facebook. A few weeks ahead of its official earnings  report ‐‐ which is rarely a sign of anything good. For certain games, delays in launching  new titles and a huge write‐down on its purchase of game maker OMGPOP. So when  Zynga pulls in less than expected, that loss is passed on to Facebook. The social network  is scheduled to report its third‐quarter earnings October 23. Preliminary earnings  announcement. Payments revenue for 2013 to $582 million, down 28% from his  previous estimate. Payment system for purchases within apps and games. So when  Zynga unveiled its bad news, analysts were quick to extend the gloomy outlook to  Facebook.     Dhrumil Patel

How much do Google, Facebook profit from your data?    

  I chose this article for the reason that it interested me.  I found the topic to be intriguing  and I also found the material within to hold information that is imperative to 21st century  success.  The key to that success, advertising, that’s how Google and Facebook make their  profit.  The profiting from data mentioned in this article is just that, advertising.  The websites,  Google and Facebook, send information about you to advertising companies and use that to  better advertise to you online and to create products based upon your wants and needs.      The article states that Google made $14.70 on each 1000 searches.  Google gets  searched over a billion times a day, meaning that in one day it makes $14700000, that’s nearly  fifteen million dollars per day.  Extrapolate that to a year and Google’s yearly profit margins  exceed $5365500000, five point three billion dollars, that is just ad revenue and doesn’t touch  on Google’s other ventures.    The article mentions that even a minimal user of Facebook can be tracked across the  entirety of the internet by it.  It goes on to say that the spying efforts of each are in an attempt  to gain money and gives hints on how to prevent this nefarious process of tracking.  The article  recommends that users delete various unused apps as to prevent them from gaining  information from monitoring, it recommends tightening security settings as well.  Whatever is  done about the security needs that you as an individual possess, it is not entirely necessary to  place a clamp on your social networks in order to prevent this, it is merely an aside.                                   


Presidential election tests Facebook friendships       I chose this article because of the potentially erroneous nature of it.  The article talks  about how people who socialize using the popular social network, Facebook, have been  stressed by the upcoming election and their individual decisions about the election.  "This is a  pretty mercurial campaign on both sides. People on both sides tend to get heated pretty fast,"  said Stevens, 37, of Ruidoso, New Mexico. As a result, he said, "there are way too many people  on Twitter who are a little scary."  Is an implication that the race is particularly heated this year  and thus people are more likely to react in a way unbecoming of themselves.    The relatively tense behavior generated through this campaign can be attributed to  many destroyed friendships, at least according to this article.  I do believe that this is true and a  quite destructive but fun to watch force that is acting within many communities and groups  throughout the US and other countries regardless of their valid input in this presidential race.  I  believe this article to be hilarious in nature and quite disturbing at the same time due to the  nature of its content and how it paces itself, the article is well written and I enjoyed it.                                                     


Softbank could play Sprint's savior   Sprint has struggled to keep up with stronger competitors Verizon and AT&T ever since its disastrous 2005 merger with Nextel. Forced to go it alone, the company has been working on a major upgrade intended to modernize its network.Shares rose last week on a Bloomberg report that said the company was considering making a counter-offer to MetroPCS. Softbank was the first Japanese wireless company to carry the Apple iPhone. s flair and assertiveness could give Sprint a needed jolt. The company lost its brief marketing edge - billing itself as the only nationwide network with unlimited data -- when T-Mobile recently reverted to its unlimited data plans as well. s management has been criticized for lacking the chutzpah to do something bolder. Regulators would likely cheer the deal, which would ensure that four strong, nationwide wireless competitors remain in the U. S. markets scuttled $36 billion buyout offer for T-Mobile last year, regulators said they opposed the deal because it would bring the number of national wireless choices down from four to three. s young hotshots in business?
