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Snapchat has unpublished its official Facebook Page.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 In the last few days, someone at the company happened to stumble across it, noted that it was very out of date, and decided it wasn’t worth the hassle to keep it going.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.

Autonomous delivery drone network set to take flight in Switzerland

Matternet has long used Switzerland as a testing ground for its delivery drone technology, and now it's ramping things up a notch. The company has revealed plans to launch the first permanent autonomous drone delivery network in Switzerland, where its flying robot couriers will shuttle blood and pathology samples between hospital facilities. The trick is the Matternet Station you see above: when a drone lands, the Station locks it into place and swaps out both the battery and the cargo (loaded into boxes by humans, who scan QR codes for access). Stations even have their own mechanisms to manage drone traffic if the skies are busy.

And the automation isn't just for the sake of cleverness -- it might be crucial to saving lives. Company chief Andreas Raptopoulos expects the drone network to transfer medical supplies within 30 minutes, and the reliability of a largely automated system means that hospitals don't have to worry about unpredictable delivery times (particularly on the ground).

Don't expect drones to blanket the skies. Matternet explains that there will only be one or two drones per network, and expansions to Germany and the UK will only happen once it's comfortable with Switzerland. The company got permission to fly over densely populated urban areas in March, if you want a sense of the time scales involved. Still, this is an honest-to-goodness example of a practical drone delivery network, and one performing crucial tasks at that -- this isn't just a nice-to-have luxury. If this network succeeds, it might persuade other countries to at least consider allowing drone networks..
