An integral part of marketing, advertisements are public notices designed to inform and motivate. Their objective is to change the thinking pattern (or buying behavior) of the recipient, so that he or she is persuaded to take the action desired by the advertiser. Ads should be relevant, well-made, useful and helping to find out new products and services and introduce a new experience. But ads are not working always in this way.

Facebook has designed and developed a 3D-360 video capture system. Some important points as below:
- It has capacity to capture high resolution video
- The system also known as Facebook surround 360
- It is also well known for production-ready 3D-360, foe hardware and software video capturing
- It will be available on GitHub this summer.
- The design for camera hardware and software code will be available on Git repository for developers, which will help to promote the product
Aquila is first solar - powered unmanned aircraft, design and developed by facebook. The idea was come in the mind due to internet.org commitment. Intenet.org has promised to provide cost-effective internet to all community worldwide. Currently around 1.6 billion people don't have internet access which is 60% of the global population. As of now, remote areas are connected through the existing technologies like optical fibre, microwave links. Facebook has developed the Lab to build new technologies (aircraft, satellite and wireless communication system) to solve the connectivity problem. Now internet is affordable to hundreds of million people where it is harder to reach people.
Facebook has joined with TIP (Telecom Infra Project) to solve the coverage issue and achieve future connectivity requirement. TIP is focussing on vendor-specific component of network infrastructure. TIP member is working hard to create a new space on the earth. They wanted to deploy the new topology across the globe. They are contributing specs in terms of hardware and software. TIP is also working on 5G enabled networks worldwide by using new topology to solve the specific connectivity challenges.
Recently Facebook has designed and tested wireless access platform. Access platform is open source platform having aim to provide cost-effective, improved connectivity features in the remote area across the globe. An open source wireless access platform will support wide range of communication option from 2G to LTE (High Speed Wireless communication media for mobile). Facebook has planned to work with Telecom Infra Project (TIP) member.
