Media echoing and social networking device and method

A method and apparatus for echoing media via a mobile device are disclosed herein. According to an embodiment, the method can include displaying automatically to a user, on the mobile device, a list of one or more respective identifiers of one or more other users experiencing respective media within a selectable geographic area.

Travel recommendations on online social networks

In one embodiment, a social-networking system may receive, from a client system of a first user of the online social network, an indication that the first user is accessing a travel-recommendation interface, receive an indication of a first geographic location, and identify one or more second geographic locations within a threshold distance from the first geographic location, the one or more second geographic locations being determined based on a travel-recommendation model associated with the first user. The social-networking system may generate one or more travel recommendations comprising at least one of the identified one or more second geographic locations, and send, to the client system of the first user, instructions for presenting the travel-recommendation interface, wherein the travel-recommendation interface comprises a map labeling one or more of the second geographic locations representing the travel recommendations..

Identifying members that increase engagement

This disclosure relates to systems and methods for identifying members that increase engagement at an online social network. In one example, a method includes retrieving network connectivity and member interaction data for members of an online social networking service that includes a plurality of explicit social networks, building statistical correlations between properties of the respective explicit social networks and interactions between members of the respective explicit social networks, and ranking a set of potential new members for one of the explicit social networks according to the statistical correlations and a statistical likelihood that the new members will increase member interactions with the explicit social network..

Detecting and measuring microbursts in a networking device

Systems, methods, and computer-readable storage media for monitoring queue occupancy in a network buffer, detecting microbursts, and analyzing the same. An asic device can monitor a queue occupancy value of a network buffer, detect when the queue occupancy value exceeds a first predetermined threshold queue occupancy, create a record with a time that the queue occupancy value exceeds the first predetermined threshold queue occupancy, a queue occupancy value at the time that the queue occupancy value exceeds the first predetermined threshold queue occupancy, detect when the queue occupancy value falls below a second predetermined threshold queue occupancy, and determine a maximum queue occupancy value between the time that the queue occupancy value exceeded the first predetermined threshold queue occupancy and a time that the queue occupancy value falls below the second predetermined threshold queue occupancy, and add to the record the maximum queue occupancy value, a time of the maximum queue occupancy value, the time that the queue that the queue occupancy value falls below the second predetermined threshold queue occupancy and the queue occupancy value at the time that the queue occupancy value falls below the second predetermined threshold queue occupancy..

Applying user-specified permissions to distribution of content items to social networking system users

A social networking system user identifies one or more social networking system users authorized to present content items to the user via the social networking system (“authorized users”). When an additional user requests presentation of a content item to the user, the social networking system determines if the additional user is an authorized user.
