A new feature from Google News allows readers to earn more than 500 different badges.

Google is now offering a huge array of over 500 different badges for people who constantly read their Google news. Each badge is designed for a particular topic. Plus, a star will also be added along the badge whenever you read a specific article. Stars have five different level: First timers will receive a bronze star, and as they continue to read more news, they will be granted a silver, gold, platinum and the coveted blue ultimate star.

As stated in the Google blog, you can keep these badges privately or you can share it with other Google News readers — allowing you to show off how stringer you are, while increasing your social interaction with people who also likes the same topic. Aside from that, the badges are interactive. Just by clicking the “add section” of the news, you will be likely to receive more article sources for the topic you’ve chosen. According to Beta-happy Google, this new feature is a “bronze release. …Once we see how badges are used and shared, we look forward to taking this feature to the next level,” they added.

Using this feature is quite easy. As explained in Google News Help, you just have to enable your website’s history so it would monitor all your desktop and mobile activities. The badges are indeed very useful, especially if you wanted to track down which types of topics you’d like to read. It will also help you in customizing your personal Google News site.

Friendster will Remove Personal Data by May 31

Written on April 27, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

From being a social network, Friendster will now overhaul its image to games and entertainment oriented hub.

As an original player in the social networking arena, Facebook will now change its image from “connecting smiles” to game and entertainment oriented mode. That said, all profile details that the site has been saving for almost a decade will be deleted on May 31, 2011. But Friendster will not totally remove your profile, they will just strip the rich information that seems to be more onerous to store compare to basic profile facts.

If you want to save your old profile details – as well as your comments, pictures, messages, blogs and groups – you can extract them using the Friendster Exporter. The Friendster Exporter will download your profile details as .zip, or you can send your photos to Flickr, Photobucket or Multiply.

“If you do not wish to keep all this history or information, then you do not need to do anything. Whether you use the Exporter or not, your Friendster account will not be deleted. Your list of friends will be preserved, along with your basic profile information. Your wallet and game details will also remain unchanged.”

Mark Zuckerberg Meets Eisenberg and Samberg: The “Zuckerbergs”

Written on January 31, 2011 by B Waldorf

The real Zuckerberg meets the two other "Bergs" at Saturday Night Live.

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg surprised everyone when he appeared on Saturday Night Live. He joked around with the actor who played him in the movie ‘The Social Network’, Jesse Eisenberg.

The audience of the program got a triple dose of Zuckerberg as Oscar nominee and guest host Eisenberg stepped into the spotlight to do the opening monologue. He was joined after a few minutes by another “Zukerberg-wannabe,” Andy Samberg. The biggest surprise was the appearance of the man himself, the real Mark Zuckerberg. It surprised Eisenberg so much he looked somewhat “nervous.” Eisenbrg redeemed himself when he asked Zuckerberg if he has seen the movie, the latter answered with, “it’s interesting.” T’was vague but not bad.

Zuckerberg showed up thrice in the show, one in a brief backstage stint with Executive Producer Lorne Michaels; second, the ‘awkward’ first time meet-up of the other two “Zuckerbergs;” and lastly, the obligatory SNL goodbye waltz wherein Mark and Jesse had a seemingly heartfelt hug to show that let bygones be bygones.

Don’t miss out the party, watch the embedded videos after the skip.
