Facebook may soon let users block comments containing chosen words and phrases from their timelines

Wednesday, November 28th, 2018

Online harassment has been an issue for about as long as online communication has existed. Facebook is known for taking measures to combat abuse and bullying on its platform, and it seems the social network is working on another feature to that end. You may soon be able to block comments containing specified words, phrases, or emoji from appearing on your timeline.

According to a screen grab shared by Jane Wong on Twitter, the in-development feature would let you choose words, strings of words, and even emoji that you don't want to appear in comments on your timeline.

Let’s talk about comments on Android Police

Monday, October 29th, 2018

Android Police has a fantastic community. The comments on our articles and YouTube videos are almost always filled with great discussions, and the live back-and-forth with viewers on our weekly Twitch shows is enjoyable. The amount of interaction we get on most of our posts is unparalleled for a site of our size, and we are very grateful for that. That being said, we want to address some negative things we've observed as that community has grown, and explain what we are going to do about them.

YouTube starts to implement user tagging, finally fixes replies with autofilled names

Sunday, August 26th, 2018

Commenting on YouTube is an exercise in frustration, and not just because of the way most people behave – that's a much longer conversation for another day. An assortment of bugs and unfinished features have been around for years and it feels like improving the comment section has been one of YouTube's lowest priorities. One of those persistent problems has been the auto-filling of usernames when you begin a reply, but now it looks like there's finally a fix in the works.

[The Android Police Files #16] Please stop following me i do not do anything wrong to your devices or stalk and harrass unsuspecting people

Monday, April 16th, 2018

Seven months have passed since we published the last installment of the AP Files. In that time, the Android world has seen some pretty interesting additions. Way too many flagships, including the latest from ASUS, Huawei, LG, and OnePlus, are being leaked/revealed with notches (thanks, Apple). Android P made its debut in developer preview form, and it looks like Google may be adding gesture navigation as well.

YouTube’s ‘miniplayer-bar’ test lets you keep watching your video as you read comments

Friday, March 23rd, 2018

We only just wrote about YouTube's new picture-in-picture test on the web, but it's common knowledge by now that Google loves running limited tests. The world's largest video sharing site is now testing a feature it calls 'miniplayer-bar' in its code, and it's something that really should have been implemented a long time ago.

You know how Facebook videos follow you to the side of your feed when you begin to keep scrolling down your news feed?

Google+ posts on desktop get more conversational with new UI tweak

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

G+ may be going through some stuff right now, but that isn't stopping Google making little changes here and there to improve the experience for anyone still using it. The Android app is updated fairly frequently, and now the desktop site is getting some attention, too. I'm not sure how many people this tweak will make a difference for, but I'm sure someone, somewhere will be pleased about it.

The change in question relates to the comments underneath posts in any Google+ feed.

[Dear God no] Facebook is testing comments with colored backgrounds

Thursday, September 7th, 2017

Facebook has made a lot of choices that people don't like, such as separating Messenger from the main Facebook app, making the Facebook app slow and huge, adding a ton of bloat to Messenger, etc. I could go on and on. But this latest potential addition could be the worst yet, at least to our eyes.

The feature looks to be in testing currently (and we hope it stays there forever).

[The Android Police Files #15] AVAST INSTALLATION ERROR , AVAST TECHNICAL HELP , AVAST SUPPORT PHONE NUMBER

Wednesday, September 6th, 2017

Welcome back to the Android Police Files, your #1 source for the brilliant stuff that the AP staff receives in our mailboxes. Since we last convened, a lot has happened. The latest version of Android shares a name with a branded product for the first time since 4.4 KitKat. The Galaxy Note8 was released, and it doesn't catch fire. And most recently, a Canadian 17-year old and his "youth leadership coach" tried to pass a Chinese ODM's phone off as their own and crowdsource it on Indiegogo.

Instagram is rolling out threaded comments

Tuesday, August 15th, 2017

Many years ago, someone on the internet invented comment threads to make conversations easier to follow. Now Instagram, one of the largest social platforms in the world, has finally discovered that comment threads are a good idea. It's adding comment threads to the service, but you probably don't have them yet.

Instagram says that comment threads will allow you to see replies to a comment grouped under that comment. That's a vastly easier way to keep track of who's responding to who.

YouTube is rebuilding the Creator Studio and introducing a new way to browse comments

Sunday, June 25th, 2017

In a blog post yesterday, YouTube made a few announcements to cap off 2017's VidCon US. In the post, they discussed their plans to remake the YouTube Creator Studio — their current channel management system — and simplify the name down to just "YouTube Studio." They also revealed a new system for comments that allows viewers to sort them by selected topics, making it easier to find what you want, and ignore what you don't. 

Over the last week, YouTube has been very busy.
