Did you know New report shows Facebook saw a drop of 30% in its downloads as compared to the prior year, due to privacy concerns and the increase in the growth of TikTok Facebook is one of the biggest social media platform in the world with more than 2.8 billion active users monthly, but Facebook is struggling so much after Apple has changed its privacy policies in the latest update of iOS 14.5 in which the advertisers have to take permission from the users to track their data. This is adversely affecting the business of Facebook as the company is trying very hard to convince its users to allow tracking. The report said a few days ago that only 15% of people across the world enabled the tracking option and only 6% in American opt-in tracking. However, this is not the only thing that is affecting the business of Facebook, AppFigures has recently shared data that shows Facebook has seen a drop of 30% in its downloads both on Google Play and App Store as compared to the prior year.

The fact that such minors are on social media and interacting with strangers brings a huge risk to the child’s safety.

Did you know Smartphone addiction is real and the ongoing pandemic has made us realize this. A ReviewsOrg survey carried out last year revealed that three out of four people found themselves addicted to their smartphones. While it was initially assumed that things would get more severe as the lockdown restrictions got tighter, a surprising development ended up making things more interesting. The 2021 survey by the same company claims that only 48% of the respondents consider that they are addicted to their mobile. However, the above-mentioned decline is understandable. For starters, US citizens have found themselves using mobile gadgets lesser while in cars since they are going from one place to another less frequently. Additionally, they no longer worry about leaving their mobile behind since they have stopped going out that often. But the above-mentioned findings do not deny that people are still addicted to their smartphones. In 2021, an average American checks their phone about 26

Did you know YouTube Survey Reveals What Is the Most Used Opening Line by Majority of the Creators On the Platform

Did you know YouTube Survey Reveals What Is the Most Used Opening Line by Majority of the Creators On the Platform All the YouTubers that create content on their YouTube channel have an opening line. A word or sentence which they use in the beginning of the video every single time in every single video. This actually makes sense because when a creator has established his own unique starting sentence or catch phrase it makes it easier for them to decide on how to start the video because once you begin talking in the video the rest automatically flows through. Secondly it also serves as a recognition of the channel and its owner and serves as a branding purpose for it as viewers get more accustomed to the common elements of each channel and once the channel gains popularity, it becomes a signature line of the creator and a catchphrase everybody recognizes . But do you know that all YouTubers, okay not all, but a majority of them begin their videos the same way. YouTube conducted a survey

Did you now Will Mobile Payments Become Popular in America?

Did you now Will Mobile Payments Become Popular in America? Not all that long ago, the concept of being able to make payments through some kind of a mobile service would have seemed rather ridiculous. However, nowadays two of the biggest economies in the world, namely China and India, have seen enormous success with contactless mobile payments, and the Netherlands has seen a successful implementation of this kind of payment service as well which has led to widespread change with regards to how people can end up buying and selling things in the first place. One country that had initially hesitated to adopt mobile payments was America which was quite surprising because of the fact that America is usually at the forefront of innovation yet at this current point in time China and India are far ahead of it in terms of mobile payments and the like.

Did you know According to the data of Flurry, only 15% of users from all over the world and 6% from the US enabled app tracking since its launch Apple Company launched the latest update of iOS 14.5 in which it made certain changes; however, the major change was that the users were given the authority to give permission to the advertisers to track their data for personalized ads. Apple was hugely criticized by many advertisers’ companies and especially Facebook that it is not supporting small businesses that mostly run-on personalized ads. Facebook had a major clash with Apple due to the privacy changes in the latest updates because most of the companies including Facebook knew that the users would never give them permission to track their data and ultimately, these companies will have fewer data to collect. Apple’s IDFA officially rolled out the latest update of iOS 14.5 in the last days of April 2021. Flurry has published the data which shows that the daily rates to enable the app tra
