Audio clips

Social networking site Facebook has launched a new feature for its messenger app that automatically transcribes any file sent as a voice recording and lets the people send voice clips to each other. To send an audio clip, just tap the microphone icon, record the message and send. The tool listens to the full audio clip and posts a typed version below the audio for the other user.

FB@Work

Facebook at Work lets you create a work account that is separate from personal Facebook accounts. With a Facebook at Work account, a user can use Facebook tools to interact with co-workers. The things a user wants to share using their work account will only be visible to other people at the respected company profile only. Employers can create separate log-ins for employees to use with their Work accounts, or users can link these up with their other profiles to access everything in one place.

Warning!

The California-based Internet giant will also prevent potentially shocking or upsetting video clips from popping into News Feeds of members whose profiles say they are younger than 18 years old. Facebook began adding warnings and age filters in November after the introduction of a feature that caused videos in News Feeds to automatically start playing. Users must now click on the warning labels for those videos to start playing.

Reading

The Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced on his page recently that he has vowed to read a book every other week in 2015, with an emphasis on learning about different beliefs, cultures and technologies. Zuckerberg created a page called "A Year of Books" and urged his friends to join him in the project. As of late Sunday afternoon, it had more than 100,000 likes.

Photos

When a Facebook user posts an image using the iOS or Android app, it is automatically "enhanced" for clarity, lighting and shadow. What's more, the user won't have to decide between individual filters, like on Instagram. For those who don't like Facebook's edits, there's also an neat slider tool that users can play with to toggle photo lighting. Slide all the way to the right, and things get a lot brighter and more defined.

Thanks

Millions of people use Facebook every day to connect with the people and things that matter to them most. Say Thanks, is an experience that lets you create personalized video cards for your friends on Facebook. To create a Say Thanks video, visit Facebook.com/thanks. Once you choose a friend, Facebook will generate a preview of the video. You'll have the ability to select a different theme and edit photos and posts that represent your friendship.

Publish

In a bid to give more teeth to advertisers and those who want to promote posts on Facebook, the social networking site has launched new tools that allow a greater ability to target posts and promote content. The biggest tool for advertisers is interest targeting that will use Facebook`s data mine to create areas like locations, celebrities and sports teams to add to posts. The purpose of this tool is to encourage news publishers to post more timely stories. Smart publishing, the third tool which will initially be available only to a limited group, will track stories users are posting to Facebook, and then will then add them to the news feeds of people who like the company.

Friends

A user will be warned as many times he/she will try to add someone who doesn't hold any sort of aquaintance or friendship with other user on Facbook. A user should have atleast 1 mutual friend before he or she can be added as a friend. A confirmation warning will pop up, asking the user whether they know the person. If the person clicks on "Confirm" then a friend request will be sent. But if the person who receives a friend request declines then you might not be able to send a friend request for 11-14 days.

Rooms

Facebook has just recently launched Rooms, a new app that allows users to connect with other people all over the world anonymously. Those who participate in a Rooms discussion can join through private invitations by the discussion's creator or by taking a screenshot of a link to the discussion board. Rooms doesn't require anyone to use his real name, and users can have different usernames across different discussions.

Save it

Save is pretty simple. When someone in your feed posts a link you'd like to revisit later, just click the Save button in the bottom right of the post or the drop down arrow in the upper right of a post and then select Save. To view or share something you've saved, you can click "Saved" in the lefthand column. Things that you saved are organized by category, so you can access them by clicking one of those titles, or you can click "All" to see all the things you've saved. From there, you can tap Share to post it yourself.
