Written on October 22, 2010 by B Waldorf

Comments Off

The situation's like this: you have been dumped and left alone. So how do you start to move on? Yes, you can begin with deleting the photos which captured your happy times together. Great news is Facebook has the same idea as well.

When you break-up with your beau, you tend to delete all the connections that will remind you of him or her. Bitter as it may seem, but this is the first step in moving on. Good thing Facebook lends a hand. If you check out your Facebook profile, it no longer shows photos of your ex. Ex-Boyfriends and girlfriends are not permitted in the “Photo Memories” box.

The Photo Memories box appears on the right hand corner of your rofile. This corner is where Facebook suggests friends and “Like” pages that you might be interested to add. The long-forgotten photos shows up, but these friends were chosen by Facebook’s algorithm for those whom you still want to have connection with. If you analyze this more, these memories create were gathered based on the writings on your wall or the messages you typed months ago.

Facebook Holds an Intimate Gala

Written on October 05, 2010 by B Waldorf

Comments Off

At first we thought it's a victory party for the movie, The Social Network, but it's not. It's an intimate event that Facebook didn't bother elaborating what is it for. No hints, no clues. So we just made few quite good guesses.

It has been ages after Facebook launched a big stepping stone in the name of Places. They recently revamped the gaming focus nearly two weeks ago plus high-res for photos. An invitation unexpectedly appeared on our screens and it’s from Facebook. The date and time said Wednesday at 10 AM. No hints on why they are making a gala but we can always guess.

Few guesses include:

  • Places: The missing key features and campaigns that are needed to further develop the program
  • Credits: What more can we do about this credentials? How about the call and SMS features, Mark Zuckerberg?
  • Ipad: No there is no official Facebook for iPad app. Its been six whole months since iPad landed on our doorsteps but the official Facebook app is still nowhere to be seen.
  • Facebook Bar: They had announced this, a Meebo Bar clone. But still missing in action.
  • Facebook Phone: Okay, they’ve denied the phone ever existed. But rumors are still high.

Facebook Places- Threat to Privacy?

Written on August 26, 2010 by B Waldorf

Comments Off

Many have commented about privacy issue on Facebook before but when you use Facebook, do you really care about your privacy?

The launch of Facebook Places caused many critics to raise an eyebrow. The idea was to alert friends of users where they are in real time. These will also post information on the location itself.

The critics saw the flaw of the settings. First and foremost you can tag your friends even if they don’t happen to be there. The News Feed will take note of the activities in the said place. To critics, this is over sharing and we should specify the privacy setting of our accounts.

This wasn’t the first time Facebook received a criticism on privacy. In fact Facebook’s problems were stretch back to its founding when Harvard sophomore Mark Zuckerberg hacked the school’s network to get pictures of the students. It masked the platform of this invention.

But who cares about privacy when you use Facebook?

Block Anyone on Facebook EXCEPT Mark Zuckerberg

Written on August 23, 2010 by B Waldorf

1 person

Block whoever you want to block except the CEO.

He is the CEO and we cannot block him. You can block anyone on Facebook, but not Mark Zuckerberg because he owns the company. We tried to block the big guy and to our surprise we can’t. A window prompt always pops out saying :

“General Block failed error: Block failed.”

We are amazed and quite impressed. We personally like Zuckerberg’s brilliant ideas and all. Especially the 2005 business card that says “I’m CEO…Bitch.” We find it funny and we forgive the engineers of Facebook for the confidential user data leisure time.

But we do hope that Zuckerberg will develop more mature apps and more mature features. Because as we see it Facebook grows its quantity but the quality for adults is still slow. The social network site  should be at least growing up too, right?

One page, thousand photos: the new feature of Facebook photo albums.

Thank you Facebook! Well it seems that Facebook values its 5 Million Users because they are making the social networking better.

Facebook photo albums are now offering us bigger photos and a single page full of the album’s content. A way much easier than the previous browsing.

Before, photo albums wore organized pages with 20 photos each page. Even though it is more organized, clicking next is annoying and tiresome. The different photo sizes made the albums little bit messy. But now, we’re loving every bit of it.
