  • Patent number: 10764809
    Abstract: Methods and systems are presented in this disclosure that enable mobile devices without access to an active network connection (e.g. cellular, satellite or Internet network) to communicate between each other by sending and receiving data packets (e.g. text, location, or image) through a mesh of connected devices. A packet for forwarding is included into a mesh forwarding list at a mobile device, wherein the mesh forwarding list includes packets for forwarding to one or more mobile devices. The mobile device checks, in each packet within the mesh forwarding list, a list with at least one identifier of at least one wireless device that has already received the packet. The mobile device forwards the mesh forwarding list to the one or more wireless devices via at least one connection, based on the checked one or more identifiers.

  • Publication number: 20200102506
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a process for the hydrodeoxygenation of vegetable oils or animal fats to produce green diesel, which comprises contacting the vegetable oil or animal fat with a Nickel-Molybdenum or Cobalt-Molybdenum catalyst supported on alumina-titania or titania, respectively; in a fixed bed reactor in the presence of hydrogen. The process involves hydrocracking, hydrogenation, decarboxylation, decarbonylation, carried out in a fixed bed reactor at temperature of about 270° C. to about 360° C., pressure of about 40 kgf/cm2 to about 60 kgf/cm2, liquid hourly space velocity (LHSV) between about 0.8 h?1 to about 3.0 h?1, and H2/oil ratio of about 2,700 ft3/bbl to about 7,000 ft3/bbl, that allows to obtain a conversion up to 99% and up to 92.7% yield on green diesel.

  • Patent number: 10607302
    Abstract: An entity having a brand page maintained by a social networking system defines a sequence of content items associated with a brand page is determined. Different content items in the sequence include different information that is dependent on interaction between a user and the sequence. For example, content items in the sequence provide increasingly more detailed or complex information when progressing from the first content item to the last content item in the sequence. When a viewing user of a social networking system interacts with the brand page, prior interactions with the sequence by the viewing user are used to classify the viewing user and to select a content item from the sequence that is communicated to the viewing user.

  • Patent number: 10559013
    Abstract: An online system facilitates auctions for advertising presentation opportunities by identifying users associated with the presentation opportunities. The online system stores mappings between user identifiers and a plurality of partner identifiers used by advertisers to identify browsers. Partner identifiers are received from an advertising exchange and used to identify a user identifier corresponding to the received partner identifier. Using the identified user identifier, the online system identifies an alternative partner identifier associated with the user identifier and sends the alternative user identifier to an advertiser for use in selecting and bidding on advertisements. The online system returns the advertisers' bids to the advertising exchange with the partner identifier received from the advertising exchange. Converting a partner identifier to another allows advertisers to target a particular user while the online system protects the user's identify.

  • Patent number: 10489825
    Abstract: A seed cluster comprising a group of users who share a particular attribute and/or affiliation is determined by a social networking system. For each user of the seed cluster, other users and/or entities connected to the user in the social networking system are retrieved. For each retrieved other user or entity, the social networking system may determine whether the other user or entity exhibits the attribute or affiliation based on a random walk algorithm. A resulting targeting cluster of users and/or entities may be used for targeting advertisements targeting to members. A social networking system may also infer an affiliation for a user based on the user's interaction with a page, application, or entity where other users who interacted with the same page, application, or entity have the same affiliation.

  • Publication number: 20190297556
    Abstract: Methods and systems are presented in this disclosure that enable mobile devices without access to an active network connection (e.g. cellular, satellite or Internet network) to communicate between each other by sending and receiving data packets (e.g. text, location, or image) through a mesh of connected devices. A mobile device receives a request to send a packet having an identifier of a recipient device. Based on the identifier, the mobile device determines whether the recipient device is in a list of mobile devices within a wireless range of the mobile device. Based on the determination, the mobile device includes the packet into an outgoing queue having packets for forwarding. The mobile device establishes one or more connections with one or more mobile devices in the list, and forwards one or more packets from the outgoing queue to the one or more mobile devices using the one or more connections.

  • Patent number: 10380606
    Abstract: Users of a social networking system perform actions on various objects maintained by the social networking system. Some of these actions may indicate that the user has a negative sentiment for an object. To make use of this negative sentiment when providing content to the user, when the social networking system determines a user performs an action on an object, the social networking system identifies topics associated with the object and associates the negative sentiment with one or more of the topics. This association between one or more topics and negative sentiment may be used to decrease the likelihood that the social networking system presents content associated with a topic that is associated with a negative sentiment of the user.

  • Patent number: 10325305
    Abstract: A social networking system user's interaction with a brand page may be tailored to match the user's interests. Content providers or page administrators of a brand page associate keywords with content posted to the brand page. A keyword may define a characteristic of a social networking system user to receive the content or may describe a characteristic of the content. The keywords are compared to a user profile of a user requesting the brand page and content posted to the brand page is selected for presentation to the user based on the user profile and the keywords. For example, content is presented to a user having a characteristic defined by criteria keyword. The selected content posted to the brand page is presented to the user requesting the brand page.

  • Patent number: 10248975
    Abstract: An advertisement (ad) proxy server acts as a proxy for serving content of third-party ads to users of an online system, reducing data leakage from users to advertisers. The ad proxy server acts as an intermediate storage and access point for content included in advertisement, such as images and videos. When an advertisement from an advertiser is selected for presentation by the online system, an ad tag identifying the location of the content for the selected ad is retrieved and used to retrieve a copy of the advertisement content. The ad proxy server stores the copy of the advertisement content and generates a modified ad tag identifying the ad proxy server. The modified ad tag is sent to a client device, which retrieves the copy of the advertisement content from the ad proxy server rather than directly from the advertiser.

  • Patent number: 9930078
    Abstract: Based on information used by the external system to identify a target user, the external system generates a target user hash identifier that is communicated to the social networking system along with a message. Using information from user profiles maintained by the social networking system, the social networking system generates hash identifiers for its users and compares the target user hash identifier to the generated hash identifiers hash identifiers for social networking system users are generated. The social networking system sends the message to a user associated with a hash identifier generated from user profile information that matches the target user hash identifier. Hence, an external application may communicate with social networking system users without accessing access information about the users maintained by the social networking system.
