50,000 Websites Integrate New Plugins from Facebook

Facebook, being one of the top social networking Website’s, has once again shown its popularity in the world of social networking. It is one of the most popular website among the people across the globe regardless of their age. Facebook has released new Plugins, which has been installed by more than 50,000 websites as a core component of the Facebook’s new Open Graph initiative.

Last week, during the F8 conference in San Francisco, Facebook launched the Open Graph API and these new Plugins. The API along with the complex protocol create and allow a more personalized web browsing experience for the user throughout  Facebook. These plugins allow the user to become interactive with a number of websites and can do various activities like logging in. Though the concept behind these plugins was not welcomed by everyone as the topic is really debatable, however the results of these plugins are not astonishing. Among the various issues raised regarding these plugins, none have stopped or slowed the growth rate of the popular social networking website.

The website figures that have integrated the social plugins from Facebook clearly show the popularity of Facebook. Last week Facebook launched these plugins with just 75 partners but in a week’s time the figure has been transformed to more than 50,000 websites.

With more than 425 million users across the globe and almost 300 websites adding these plugins per hour, Facebook has clearly shown its intention to become the central point or hub of the web.

YouTube to ban Hitler’s “Downfall” Spoofs

You must have had a good laugh by watching the various, Hitler spoofs from the movie Valkyrie. Millions of users have logged on to various Hitler spoofs from famous scene of the “Downfall” in the movie, in which Hitler gives a angry speech to his generals, as he is losing the war. Though Hitler speaks in German, the subtitles are replaced by complete different topics, often vivifying hate messages and mocking various brands.

Well, now these spoofs have actually hurt consumer’s sentiments of various brands like Xbox, Apple and Adobe. Due to these boiling issues that are being viewed throughout Youtube, Constantin films, which is the original owner of the “Downfall” scene has filed for a copyright.

According to a spokesperson from Open video Alliance that had informed Constatin films about the copyright infringement “There are hundreds of Hitler Downfall videos, and it is unclear what will become of them. The burden of filing a counter notice or a claim of fair use to restore the video falls on individual users, so it will be difficult to reverse this action notice or a claim of fair use to restore the video falls on individual users, so it will be difficult to reverse this action.”

It has not been confirmed by YouTube if it will go ahead with a complete ban on the spoofs.  However as a copyright issue has been filed it’s only a matter of time to see if YouTube would consider any agreement with Constantin films.
