WhatsApp’s newest feature: read notification


WhatsApp is already starting to enact features similar to Facebook.

Now, the messaging app acquired by Facebook has checkmarks to show that a message has been read. It also shows when a message has been delivered.
WhatsApp wrote about this in the Q&A section:

In a group chat, the second check marks will appear when all participants in the group have received your message. The two blue check marks will appear when all participants in the group have read your message.
If you only see a single check mark next to your message, there is likely nothing wrong with WhatsApp or your phone. There may be several reasons why your message has been sent, but not delivered to your chat partner:
Their phone might be off.
They could be sleeping, especially if they live in a different time zone.
They might be experiencing network connection issues.
They might have seen the notification on their screen, but did not launch the app (especially common if the recipient uses an iPhone).
They might have blocked you. For more information read this article.

Rita Ora Blames ‘Hacker’ After Twitter Fan Promo Backfires!!!

On Halloween, pop singer Rita Ora made a special promise to her Twitter fans: “Dropping my new song Monday if this gets 100,000 retweets,” she wrote.

Sounds good, right? Ora has almost four million followers, so the promo was basically a lock. Or so she must have thought: when the message picked up less than 2,000 retweets, it was clear that she was going to finish a long way short of her lofty target.

So she deleted the tweet.

however the consequences of the failed prom and her attempting to remove the evidence caused quit alot of backlash in the Facebook community both fans and others which caused a hell of a lot of shame to be shoot at her.

so what did Rita Ora do to get her self out of this hole:,apologize,make the actual freaking song,kill herself from the shame.

No she blamed hackers. -__-
