Facebook era to an END?

An online poll carried out by The Christian Post  aimed at measuring just how Google+ is faring against rival Facebook found that the majority of voters believe both companies will coexist.

The unofficial poll, in which almost 2,000 people participated, gave voters the following three options to choose from:

1. Google+ Will Dethrone Facebook
2. Google+ Will Lose to Facebook
3. Google+ Will Coexist with Facebook, Just Like Coke and Pepsi

The votes proved to be favorable for “Google+ dethroning Facebook,” with 36.5 percent of the votes (702 votes), over “Google+ losing to Facebook,” 16.6 percent of the votes (319 votes). But the majority, 46.9 percent of the votes (903 votes) believe that both companies will co-exist in rivalry the same way Coca-Cola and Pepsi have battled for dominion until the present.

No duplication of votes was allowed in a poll that blocked identical IP addresses from voting twice. And although the poll’s accuracy may certainly be questioned due to a limited number of votes casted and various other factors, the results of two additional polls conducted revealed consistent in favorable results for Google+.

The three polls consisted of almost 3,500 votes and are still open to any user who wants to weigh his/her opinion against the general online public.

Facebook to open Hyderabad Office soon

Facebook Hyderabad Office

 

Popular social networking site Facebook is opening its office in Hyderabad, where it plans to build a world-class team to support its growing number of users, advertisers and developers in India and around the world.

The decision to start an office in Hyderabad comes in the backdrop of the phenomenal increase in number of Indian users, which touched an 80-lakh figure. Hyderabad will be the fourth support centre for Facebook. Currently, its operations are supported out of Palo Alto in California and Dublin in Ireland. The third support centre would be set up in Austin, Texas.

Facebook will tap the talent of Hyderabad’s skilled workforce, recruiting a small initial team and is anticipating further growth as the office expands.

A full list of job descriptions for open positions has also been hosted on ‘www.facebook.com/careers’. The recruitment has already begun, a company statement said.

The Hyderabad office, like others, will house online advertising and developer support teams.

It is expected to provide round-the-clock multi-lingual support to its ever-growing user base.

Facebook’s take

Don Faul, Director of Global Online Operations for Facebook, said in Hyderabad: “People in India and around the world are using Facebook to do everything from voicing their opinions on national issues, to connecting with fellow cricket and hockey fans, to sharing photos with friends and family.

We expect our new office in Hyderabad to tap the region’s strong pool of talented people who understand operations and technology and help us more effectively serve the needs of our users, advertisers and developers around the world”.
