In a surprise change, Facebook will give up one major data source that the company uses to help advertisers target relevant users on the platform. The company just announced that it will end a feature called Partner Categories, launched back in 2013 out of a partnership between Facebook and major data brokers.
Third party data helps Facebook further atomize its user base into meaningful segments for advertisers. As TechCrunch explained when the data partnership first launched:
Google on Tuesday announced that it is adding captions to images shown in search results. With captions in Google Images, the search giant aims to provide “better visual discovery with more context” on the image results page. The image captions will start to roll out globally this week on the Google app (Android and iOS) as well as on mobile browsers. However, there is no information on whether the feature will roll out to desktop browsers in future.
YouTube will begin displaying text from Wikipediaarticles and other websites alongside some videos in a couple of weeks as the unit of Alphabet’s Googleattempts to combat hoaxes and conspiracy theories on the service, its chief executive said on Tuesday.
Susan Wojcicki, speaking on stage at the South by Southwest Conference in Austin, Texas, displayed a mock-up of the new feature, which are called information cues.

LinkedIn wasn’t built for low-skilled job seekers, so Facebook is barging in. Today Facebook is rolling out job posts to 40 more countries to make itself more meaningful to people’s lives while laying the foundation for a lucrative business.
Facebook has support for 3D-objects: the user can place interactive 3D models in the tape. The social network supports the glTF 2.0 file format, which is common in the 3D development environment. Thus, you can create an object using 3D modeling software or a 3D camera and place it directly in the feed.
