Introducing "Groups for Schools" on Facebook.

In very near future, all U.S. colleges and then other colleges around the world will be able to create groups on Facebook for their classes, clubs and more. These groups can be used for posting lecture notes, schedules, assignments or anything related to school. Anyone can upload and download files within that group. You can also create events and send messages to other students and teachers.

Here are some facts about “file sharing” in groups:

  • Facebook will not allow copyrighted files, which means you can’t share music files with your classmates (just kidding :D). 
  • The maximum size of a file you can upload is 25 MB.
  • Again, “.exe” files are not allowed to upload to keep it safe and secure.

How to Join?

Only students and faculty can join their school’s group with their “.edu” email addresses. You can join multiple schools, but Facebook will verify that you have an active email address for each school.
Once groups are available at your school, you should see a message on the left side of your home page and then follow the instruction or you can go to groups for schools page to search for your college or university.

World’s First Virtual Store Opens in Korea

Life is getting easier for us because of the amazing ideas and technology. World’s first virtual supermarket has been opened by a major South Korean retailer in Korea. We have seen the online markets, but this is an actual place for shopping where customers buy virtual items by scanning barcodes on their smartphones.

Customers can see all the items on the shelves like they see in a grocery store, and if they want to purchase them, the only thing they need to do is download an app on their smartphone and scan the barcodes and then, all the items will be placed in their online shopping cart. The items will be delivered to them once they have paid. They can get the delivery at any address (home or work) at any time.

All customers must have the Homeplus app in order to purchase the items. The app does everything for you. For example, if you have purchased an item in the past and you want to order it again, you can simply order it via it’s barcode from the app without visiting the store again. You can also replace the items using this amazing app.
