Snapchat unpublishes its Facebook Page


Snapchat has unpublished its official Facebook Page. Snapchat declined to comment as to why the page is no longer available, but a person close to the company told VentureBeat that the main reason was simply due to the lack of use.

As Snapchat continues to grow and plow ahead, there is increasing scrutiny on competition from its larger social giant, Facebook, and the duo’s relationship. But this quiet move is unlikely to change anything between the two — the reality is Snapchat didn’t use its Facebook Page much.

Navigating to the facebook.com/snapchat URL will now give you a generic “Sorry, this content isn’t available right now” error message. Less than a week ago, the Page appeared to be alive and well:


Snapchat’s app page had over 6.5 million Likes before it was pulled. But it wasn’t very frequently used: Posts were being published many months apart.

The last public post Snapchat made on its Facebook Page was in August 2013 (though we were told that November 2013 is actually closer to the correct date for the last post). Either way, there has been no activity for well over two years.

In fact, our contact familiar with the matter actually said the team forgot Snapchat had a Facebook Page. In the last few days, someone at the company happened to stumble across it, noted that it was very out of date, and decided it wasn’t worth the hassle to keep it going.

For the record, Snapchat’s Twitter profile, which has 1.58 million followers, is still alive and well. The latest tweets went out just a few hours ago.

Microsoft’s Seeing AI app for the blind now reads handwriting

Artificial intelligence took center stage at Microsoft's AI Summit in San Francisco on Wednesday. Aside from announcing AI smarts for a range of software -- from Bing to Office 365 -- the tech titan is also ramping up its Seeing AI app for iOS, which uses computer vision to audibly help blind and visually impaired people to see the world around them. According to Microsoft, it's nabbed 100,000 downloads since its launch in the US earlier this year, which convinced the tech titan to bring it to 35 countries in total, including the EU.

It's also getting a bunch of new features. The app now boasts more currency recognition, adding British pounds, US dollars, Canadian dollars, and Euros to its tally. Going beyond the color in a scene, it can also spot the color of specific objects, like clothes. Plus, it's no longer restricted to just short printed text, with handwriting recognition now part of its skill set. You can also customize the voice that it uses to speak its observations out loud, and set how fast it talks.

Finally, a musical light detector alerts you to the light in an environment with an audible tone -- Microsoft claims the tool will save users from having to touch a hot bulb or LED battery to check if it's on. Despite the big update, there's still no word on an Android launch.
