Facebook Help Center | Facebook | technologies | Scoop.it
Facebook is a social utility that connects people with friends and others who work, study and live around them.

 

Facebook has announced a redesign for its Help Center.

 

The new Help Center is designed to “get users the information they need in just a few clicks”, and is even personalised according to things users may need help with.

 

Six new major topics are provided to help start browsing; these include...

- a “See what’s new on Facebook” category, where you can read about Facebook’s newest features.

 

Scroll further down, and users will find a list of “Top Questions”.

 

On the left of the webpage users will find the new simplified navigation interface, where they can start searching for any issues if the six major topics don't fit.

uWhisp is really new and some of the links on the main page are not up and running yet.


For practitioners that keep a Facebook page for their learners or a Twitter feed, uWhisp, a site currently in Beta, allows users to record audio that can then be played back within their web browser.


It currently requires practitioners to use Firefox, Safari, or  Google Chrome and to add the plug-in.


Note: The plug-in also places a button in the text boxes of the social networks that are used.


A potential look into the future of how text based Social Media is heading towards being vocally social.
