Facebook's Latest Feature Will Display Strangers' Posts
Facebook is now rolling out a new feature called the "Latest Conversations" in its search results that will show the most recent public posts about timely topics which a lot of users across its network are discussing. The new feature gives you a broad view of current events trending outside your social circle. Facebook users now can get global access to public views, responses, and sentiments without bias.
Facebook's 'Latest Conversations' Feature
The "Latest Conversations" unit is different from the previously available feature. Before, performing a keyword-based search on Facebook would get a display of mixed information. Users would be able to see news articles, public posts, photos, videos, pages, groups and apps associated with the search term. This counter gives Facebook users an idea of which topic is trending on the Facebook at the moment. For global news, there are millions of people talking about a certain event which is similar to Twitter that provides a live update.
The Facebook feature will be systematically rolled out over the next few months. It has been made live in the mobile app for certain territories and will move a shift to the desktop version at the end of this year. On the other hand, users might end up seeing posts written in some other languages. however, it still gives you a clear idea of what people across the globe are thinking about that specific topic. The translate button feature to your native language is not present at the moment.
Another drawback of this feature is that it doesn't get automatically updated when you get to the bottom of the feed, users will have to go back to the "Latest Conversation" tab, and choose again on the "See All" to see new posts. A Facebook spokesperson said in a statement "We're rolling out a new section in search results that will show the most recent public posts about timely topics that a lot of people are discussing on Facebook."

A simple, Yet Versatile, New Design for Chaotic Oscillating Circuitry Inspired by Prime Numbers
Researchers at Tokyo Institute of Technology have found a simple, yet highly versatile, way to generate "chaotic signals" with various features. The technique consists of interconnecting three "ring oscillators," effectively making them compete against each other while controlling their respective strengths and their linkages. The resulting device is rather small and efficient, thus suitable for emerging applications such as realizing wireless networks of sensors.
