Facebook Is Actively Looking Into Launching A PAID Version

Facebook Is Actively Looking Into Launching A PAID Version

What if I ask you all that; would you pay to have access to a Facebook version that will be free of commercials or ads? Yes, it sounds really weird but, it is true, as according to the latest reports, the social network giant Facebook actively looking into launching a paid version.

Facebook Is Actively Looking Into Launching A PAID Version

Would you pay to have access to a Facebook version that will be free of commercials or ads? Without bragging, the company has been studying whether a subscription model with this proposal can be successful among users or not.
It’s not that Facebook is considering becoming paid. Mark Zuckerberg himself explained that the advertising-based business model is what allows the social network to be used even by people who would not be able to pay. The paid version would only be an alternative for those who want to get rid of the ads.

The reason for this is that, while having more than 2 billion monthly active users, the social network giant Facebook knows that a significant number of people would leave the service because of advertising. There is no survey indicating which formats most annoy users, but one can imagine that the ads showing products seen recently in an online store are among them.

Sources close to the company told Bloomberg that several internal searches have already been done on a paid version, but all led to the conclusion that, in general, users would not be receptive to the idea because they understood that Facebook was being greedy for charging something which has always been free.

New studies are done because, in the social network giant Facebook’s perception, a behaviour is changing. Users are more concerned with issues such as privacy and data sharing. The Cambridge Analytica case certainly has a connection to this: distrust of the social network has increased considerably after the scandal.

Whether effectively or not, the social network giant Facebook has been taking steps to improve its image, such as combating fake news and prioritizing user content in the news feed. A paid version can join them, but chances are remote: for now, the subject is only being studied.

One thing you can be sure of: the social network giant Facebook will not make major changes to its advertising business model. The company made a profit of almost $5 billion in the first quarter of the year, with almost all of that amount based on ads.

What is the difference between a direct and an indirect address instruction ?

Direct addressing means the instruction refers directly to the address being accessed. That is, the instruction encoding itself contains the address of the location. Depending on the instruction set, it may also allow computing a small index relative to the address. When used that way, you can think of that as a direct-indexed mode. (Note: Some processors call ‘direct’ mode ‘absolute’, such as the 6502.)

Indirect addressing uses an address held in a register or other location to determine what memory location to read or write. The idea here is that the instruction itself isn’t directly telling you the address to access, but rather indirectly telling the CPU where to find that address. The processor may also allow you to add a small offset to the indirect address, giving an indirect-indexed addressing mode.

What Is Defensive Programming ?

Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed. – WikiPedia


Introduction Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed.
Advantages Defensive programming is an approach to improve software and source code, in terms of:
General qualityMaking the source code comprehensibleMaking the software behave in a predictable mannerDrawback Overly defensive programming, however, may safeguard against errors that will never be encountered, thus incurring run-time and maintenance costs. There is also the risk that the code traps or prevents too many exceptions, potentially resulting i…
