Facebook wants to put their reaction emoji’s to work in live video to show you when the
best part of the video is happening. Facebook tells Josh Constine that it’s putting reactions
to work to power a visualized timeline of when a Live video receives the most engagement.
When you go to fast-forward through the recorded replay of a Live clip, you’ll see the graph
of reaction volume overlaid on the progress bar. Basically you’ll be able to see when
the video gets interesting and skip there. Boom Instant gratification! At the moment
its being tested with a limited amount of users. Comparably the company that tracks insights
into compensation and cultural data looks to add more transparency to its compensation
and culture platform as it adds a company review feature that allows users to sort data
by race and gender. While Comparably doesn’t have unlimited sorting capabilities, the race
and gender filters offer more than its competitor Glassdoor when asked about being a Glassdoor
competitor the CEO had this to say. “We have a lot of respect for Glassdoor and what they
do. And we believe that we have a take on compensation, culture and company data that
is very different from what they do. And a product experience that brings a new and fresh
take on how to bring more transparency to workplaces.” According to CNBC and confirmed by Techcrunch

  1. Unkept chewbacca hair man is the new host?..Damn…Managment at TechCrunch needs to authorize the clipper protocol.I won't elaborate too much due to my clearance level but it does include chewbacca man being subjected to a hot shave on his face and dome.He'll be bald and smooth afterwards.The days of his matted hair festering and evolving into hairy evilness will be over.

  2. Thanks to fucking God or someone at TechCunch that heard my bitching and replaced the host(s) with the best man for this job a.k.a Tito Hamze! Good job. No.1 fan ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ™

  3. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ญ OMG NOOO!!!!!!, I would prefer (anyone) else to give Tech Crunch News but him!. He wants to make everything stupidly "funny", I would even prefer a actual clown than him. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ literally crying about this. They choose the worst guy for this job, I wouldn't had said anything if this guy was not permanent.
    Used to love Tech Crunch ๐Ÿ˜ข

  4. Great new host. There are other, more straight-delivering tech news hosts out there, which is cool too. Refreshing to have an option that offers something a little different.

  5. Personally, I just don't like the goofiness at all, it's like an unnecessary layer. I don't mind if you make some jokes if you are not all goofy about it. I just like to see the TechCrunch report and that's all, in and out. that's the only big reason that I see TechCrunch. Just take it out the goofiness and I would love you forever Tito.
