Facebook is an online social networking service headquartered in Menlo Park, California. Its website was launched on February 4, 2004, by Mark Zuckerberg with his college roommates and fellow Harvard University students Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes. The founders had initially limited the website's membership to Harvard students, but later expanded it to colleges in the Boston area, the Ivy League, and Stanford University. It gradually added support for students at various other universities and later to high-school students. Facebook now allows anyone who claims to be at least 13 years old to become a registered user of the website. Its name comes from a colloquialism for the directory given to it by American universities students.After registering to use the site, users can create a user profile, add other users as "friends", exchange messages, post status updates and photos, share videos and receive notifications when others update their profiles. Additionally, users may join common-interest user groups, organized by workplace, school or college, or other characteristics, and categorize their friends into lists such as "People From Work" or "Close Friends". Facebook had over 1.3 billion active users as of June 2014. Due to the large volume of data collected about users, the service's privacy policies have faced scrutiny, among other criticisms. Facebook, Inc. held its initial public offering in February 2012 and began selling stock to the public three months later, reaching a peak market capitalization of $104 billion. Wikipedia.

In one embodiment, a computing device identifies a portion of a display object to pre-generate. The device may monitor a thread to identify the next upcoming window of idle time (i.e., the next opportunity when the thread will be idle for a minimum period of time). The device may add one or more selected pre-generation tasks to a message queue for execution by the thread during the window. The device may execute the one or more selected pre-generation tasks in the message queue by pre-generating at least one selected element of a display object with content for a portion of the content layout, and then return the display object.


Systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable media can acquire a video resource at a first level of a tiered architecture. A first video representation can be generated, based on the video resource, at a second level of the tiered architecture. The first video representation can be associated with a first publisher. It can be detected that at least a first post and a second post are utilizing the first video representation. The first post and the second post can be representable at a third level of the tiered architecture and can be initiated by the first publisher. Data analytics for the first video representation can be aggregated based on the first post and the second post.


Systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable media can determine that a first content item was provided for publication through the social networking system. At least some portions of the first content item that match content included in a second content item are determined, the second content item being accessible through the social networking system. A determination is made that the portions of the first content item include at least some copyrighted content from the second content item. At least one notification is provided to a publisher of the second content item, wherein the notification indicates a potential copyright violation by a publisher of the first content item, and wherein the notification identifies at least some portions of the first content item that match copyrighted content in the second content item.

Systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable media can determine at least one request to access a content item, wherein the content item was composed using a set of camera feeds that capture at least one scene from a set of different positions. A viewport interface can be provided on a display screen of the computing device through which playback of the content item is presented, the viewport interface being configured to allow a user operating the computing device to virtually navigate the at least one scene by changing i) a direction of the viewport interface relative to the scene or ii) a zoom level of the viewport interface. A navigation indicator can be provided in the viewport interface, the navigation indicator being configured to visually indicate any changes to a respective direction and zoom level of the viewport interface during playback of the content item.

Systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable media can determine that a publisher is providing a first live content stream for distribution through the social networking system, the first live content stream including copyrighted content. A determination is made that a broadcaster is providing a second live content stream for distribution through the social networking system. The first live content stream and the second live content stream are exposed to at least some users of the social networking system. While the first live content stream and the second live content stream are being distributed through the social networking system, a determination is made that at least some portions of the second live content stream match copyrighted content included in the first live content stream. At least one notification is provided to the broadcaster of the second live content stream, wherein the notification indicates a potential copyright violation by the broadcaster.
