Facebook hides 'likes' in Australia trial to ease anxiety
Facebook has begun hiding the number of "likes" for posts in Australia, it said Friday, a trial designed to ease social pressure that could be rolled out worldwide. Facebook's decision comes after it launched a trial in July to hide "likes" on the company's other major social media platform, Instagram. What began as a test on Instagram in Canada was expanded to Australia, Brazil and several other major markets.The Facebook trial was described as "a limited test in order for us to get some early learnings.
Swedish telecoms giant Ericsson predicted that superfast 5 G internet will cover up to 65% of the world 's population by the end of 2025 . In its report on Monday, Ericsson estimated that more than 13 million customers in China will have signed up to 5 G subscriptions by the end of 2019.
By the end of 2025 , we expect 5 G to have 2 . 6 billion subscriptions covering up to 65 percent of the world ’s population and generating 45 percent of the world ’s total mobile data traffic NB-IoT and Cat-M technologies are projected to account for more than 50 percent of cellular IoT connections in 2025 .
Up to 65% of the world's population and some 2.6 billion subscriptions will be covered by 5G by the end of 2025, according to the November 2019 edition of the Ericsson Mobility Report.
Also by the end of 2025, 5G is expected to handle 45% of mobile data traffic worldwide, forecasts Ericsson. Up until 2025, the most rapid uptake of 5G will be in North America,where it is predicted that the new technology will account for 74% of mobile subscriptions. Northeast Asia will be placed second with 56%, followed by Europe with 55%.

South Korea's largest car company said Tuesday that it plans to invest 41 trillion won ($35 billion) into "future mobility technology" by 2025. That massive pledge puts it on par with some of the industry's top players. Volkswagen is spending €30 billion ($34 billion) over the next five years to make an electric or hybrid version of every vehicle in its lineup.
Subscriptions to 5 G networks will reach 2 . 6 billion in 2025 , equivalent to more than one in every five mobile connections. Some of them will be relevant at different times of the technology’s development, but the never- ending need for speed and people’s apparently limitless demand for video consumption
After Mobile World Congress 18 last week, there's been a lot of talk about 5 G lately, but what is 5 G ? AT&T revealed in February that Atlanta, Dallas, and Waco, Texas will receive 5 G access by the end of the year. Intel asserts that " worldwide subscriptions could reach more than 2 . 6 billion by 2025 ."
Beyond the deployment of 5G, the report suggests that by the end of 2025, average monthly consumption of mobile data will have risen to 24 GB per user, as opposed to the current level of a little over 7 GB. The expected increase will be driven by the development of new services and the growth of HD video streaming.
With regard to the roll-out of 5G, 2019 will be remembered as a milestone for the deployment of the new technology with providers in Asia, North America, the Middle East and Europe turning on their first 5G networks. In South Korea alone, where 5G was launched in the spring of 2019, more than three million subscriptions have already been sold. The threshold of 10 million subscribers was exceeded in China. As for France, where frequencies are still being distributed, technology enthusiasts will have to wait until the second half of 2020 for the first consumer offers.
2020 will be a critical year not only for the emergence of 5G offers in a number of countries, but also for the launch of new 5G handsets, which are compatible with the new services.
