Image
WhatsApp is all set to start serving advertisements in 2020, Facebook has reportedly revealed at the annual Facebook Marketing Summit in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
The ads will initially be featured within the WhatsApp Status feature - similar to how the ads are being served through Instagram Stories since January 2017.

WhatsApp was previously reported to bring ads to its Status feature this year.

The Android and iPhone versions of WhatsApp were also said to have the necessary implementation for hosting ads.

BeConnectAgency's Olivier Ponteville, who appears to have attended a session of the ongoing Facebook Marketing Summit in Rotterdam, revealed that the social networking giant had announced the arrival of WhatsApp ads.

An image apparently showing a presentation slide pertaining to the development highlights that the ads will look similar to native statuses on the instant messaging app.

Vice President Chris Daniels recently confirmed that WhatsApp is set to use the Status feature to se…

Applet

Image
An applet is a small application designed to run within another application.
The term "applet" is sometimes used to describe small programs included with a computer'soperating system, it usually refers to Java applets, or small applications written in the Java programming language.

Java applets cannot be run directly by the operating system. Instead, they must run within the Java Runtime Environment (JRE), or within another program that includes a Java plug-in.

If there is no JRE installed, Java applets will not run. Fortunately, Java is freely available for Windows, Mac, and Linux systems, which means you can easily download and install the appropriate JRE for your system.

Since Java applets run within the JRE and are not executed by the operating system, they are crossplatform, meaning a single applet can run on Windows, Mac, and Linux systems.

Applets can serve as basic desktop applications, they have limited access to system resources and therefore are not ideal for comp…

Algorithm

Image
An algorithm is a set of instructions designed to perform a specific task.
This can be a simple process, such as multiplying two numbers.

Search engines use proprietary algorithms to display the most relevant results from their search index for specific queries.

In computer programming, algorithms are often created as functions. These functions serve as small programs that can be referenced by a larger program.

For example, an image viewing application may include a library of functions that each use a custom algorithm to render different image file formats. An image editing program may contain algorithms designed to process image data.

In many cases, there are multiple ways to perform a specific operation within a software program. Therefore, programmers usually seek to create the most efficient algorithms possible.

By using highly-efficient algorithms, developers can ensure their programs run as fast as possible and use minimal system resources.

Of course, not all algorithms are created …
