  • Patent number: 10891044
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described that include providing, on a touchscreen display of an electronic device, a stream of content items, at least some of which are associated with a corresponding display anchor. Inputs are detected at the touchscreen display and the inputs are associated with a scroll speed. The scroll speed may be based on a detected distance between the inputs on the touchscreen and an elapsed time between at least two of the inputs. In response to determining a lack of input for a predefined time period, a display anchor can be determined and selected. The display anchor may correspond to a content item to be used as a pause location for the stream. The scrolling of the stream of content items can be paused at the pause location to use the selected display anchor to display the content item in a top viewable portion of the display.

  • Patent number: 10469439
    Abstract: A social networking system enables users to interact through a content item in real time by presenting an interaction bar to a user viewing a content item page associated with the content item. The social networking system presents the content item pages for content items along with a content item header. The content item header remains at a fixed position on the display of a viewing user's client device at the top of the display. If the social networking system receives an interaction with a content item, the social networking system can identify users who are viewing the content item page associated with the content item and present an interaction bar that describes the interaction in the content item header. To determine whether to present an interaction bar to a viewing user, the social networking system can calculate an affinity score of a viewing user for the interaction.

  • Patent number: 10203858
    Abstract: A method of controlling display of information on a touch-sensitive display of a portable electronic device includes displaying selectable elements in an application screen. The first selectable element is located at a first location and, in response to receipt of an input, entering the display control mode of the portable electronic device. The method also includes, while in the display control mode and in response to receipt of a gesture on keys on a mechanical keyboard, moving, by an operating system on the portable electronic device, the application screen on the touch-sensitive display such that the first selectable element is moved to a second location. In response to detecting a touch at the second location while the first selectable element is displayed at the second location, utilizing, by the application, the touch to select the first selectable element. Returning the application to an original location on the touch-sensitive display when exiting the display control mode.

  • Patent number: 10198101
    Abstract: The manipulation system described herein provides a common platform and application-programming interface (API) for applications to communicate with various multi-touch hardware devices, and facilitates the interpretation of multi-touch input as one or more manipulations. Manipulations map more directly to user intentions than do individual touch inputs and add support for basic transformation of objects using multiple touch contacts. An application can use manipulations to support rotating, resizing, and translating multiple objects at the same time. The manipulation system outputs two-dimensional (2D) affine transforms that contain rotation, scale, and translation information. Thus, using the manipulation system the application author can focus more on building touch-capable applications and let the manipulation system handle the underlying transformations and communication with the multi-touch hardware.

  • Patent number: 10180980
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable media are disclosed for identifying duplicate events. In one implementation, a computer-implemented method is provided that includes receiving an event based on a user interaction with a client device, and determining content and a location for the event. The method further includes calculating a duplicate value for the event using the content and the location of the even, and determining a degree of similarity by comparing the duplicate value to a table of stored duplicate values. In addition, the method includes identifying the event as a duplicate of a stored event when the degree of similarity exceeds a predetermined threshold level of similarity, and indexing the event on the client device depending on the determination of whether or not the event is a duplicate of the stored event.
