Social Graph Studios' Social Application, Status Shuffle, Accessed Half a Billion Times to Set Users' Facebook Status

In Celebration of Achieving this Milestone, Toronto-Based Application Developer Upgrades Its Best-Selling iPhone App

TORONTO, Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- People used Social Graph Studios' social application, Status Shuffle, a half a billion times to set their Facebook status over the last five years. Two other notable milestones have been recently met: Status Shuffle has received 3 million Facebook Likes and users have shuffled through statuses 50 billion times.

"Hitting these milestones is proof that people love using Status Shuffle to help find the perfect status," said Oz Solomon, Social Graph Studios' founder and CEO. "People use Status Shuffle because it's fun to browse through our database of community-moderated statuses. Status Shuffle has millions of funny, poignant and relevant statuses for people to choose from."

In celebration, Social Graph Studios updated Status Shuffle iPhone to version 2.0. The new version of Status Shuffle iPhone has a refined new style, allows users to swipe or tap to get the next status, streamlined navigation and support for iPhone 5 and retina displays.

Status Shuffle helps users find a status message to post on their Facebook Timeline. The application selects from 3.2 million crowd-sourced statuses using a proprietary shuffling algorithm that recommends statuses that users are more likely to care about.

Status Shuffle users automatically moderate the content simply by using Status Shuffle. People have set their status, voted on statuses, shared statuses or saved a status as a favorite more than 1.6 billion times using Status Shuffle. The Status Shuffle engine uses these signals and user demographic information to determine which statuses are strong and more relevant.

Status Shuffle on Facebook has over 2.7 million unique monthly active users while Status Shuffle iPhone has been installed by more than 1 million unique people.

"The social and mobile experiences are converging. We are proud to be at the front of this disruptive change. Status Shuffle has been around for 5 years because it's so easy and fun to use. We understand how to make great apps," said Solomon.

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures.

It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...

Much of IT terminology is often misused and misapplied. Modernization and transformation are two such terms. They are often used interchangeably even though they mean different things and have very different connotations. Indeed, it is somewhat safe to assume that in IT any transformative effort is likely to also have a modernizing effect, and thus, we can see these as levels of improvement efforts. However, many businesses are being led to believe if they don’t transform now they risk becoming ...
