This Is How Facebook And Google Controls You

October 12, 2011 2 comments

Google and facebook  are the two legends of the internet that no one will ever challenge to.. clearly now some people can’t even live without these websites. and everyone know that these website do bring some value into your lives.. but what u don’t realize is  how these websites control your life.. its not just about googe and facebook.. many  other major websites like yahoo,msn, twitter,bing  are doing the same thing.

 

few of years ago these websites were controlled by human editors who managed them according to our needs.. but now it has been taken over by algorithms which only shows us only what we want.. which they decide according to our likes  interests.. and because of this we miss out many things we needs to know.. just imagine when you type a name of a country into google to find about a breaking news and first link you come up with is about justin biber. that has happen to me many times.  and i agree that sometimes its good that these websites gives us many interesting things according to our interests.. but sometimes we miss out many important things we need to know just because of that.

In the following video it has been clearly explained by Eli Pariser  (the former Executive Director of MoveOn.org) honestly even I didn’t realise about  this truth  until i watch this video. so i decided to share it here so many people can know about it.

This video clip has been adapted from the conference held in long beach california, february 2011

Facebook Is Not As Secured As You Think.

October 8, 2011 2 comments

Do you use facebook  regularly..?

Do you share Your Photo’s, Videos and Your Recent Activities On Facebook..?

If  so, then this  Article is For You…

According to a new study at Carnegie Mellon University’s Robotics Institute in Pittsburgh showed that it’s possible to find your social security number using only a face recognition software. they have found that just by taking a picture of a person  and comparing it with facebook, it is possible to find lots of personal information about that person. so this means that your identity is not so secured as you thought it might be. also you could be at  risk of fraud, invasions of privacy or worse.

facebook is the most famous social networking site in the world. more than 800 million people uses it everyday. and we never hesitate to share our personal photos, videos or we even share everything we do in real life with our facebook friends. but do you ever stop to wonder what happens  if some fake person in your friends list uses your name, phone number, email for any frauds. it is possible and very easy than you think it might be..  so it time for you to think twice before sharing your personal things with the whole world.

remember facebook is only a web based social networking site dedicated to find friends from all over the world and stay connected with them.. that does not mean that you have to share your whole life with them. so i suggest you to make some restrictions to your facebook account and change your privacy settings immediately and also dont forget to share your posts about your private life only with your trustful and closest friends. with the new updated  facebook friends list it will be easy for you. so start using them for your own good. and be more cautious  when you tag in your friends in your photos. because you will never know a fake person who pretends to be your friend.

how technology affects our lives

October 4, 2011 1 comment

Dont be a slave to the technology..

Technology is one of the things in the world that is developing very fast.. day by day its only getting better and smaller. we hear about various news regarding to latest gadgets and equipments everyday. for an example the computer we have today is much faster than the computers we had 10 years ago. so one thing is for sure that the technology is keep getting better.

scientist and inventors are doing whatever they can to make human lives easier by creating these amazing equipment to help people to ease up their everyday work. but while making our everyday work easier we are exposed to many other side effects that can change our lives. obesity is one of the worst things that technology brings to the world. in example today we are  even too lazy to go the library and read a book. instead we use internet to find ebook’s. i agree it is much more easier and faster.. but we never realize that it takes away all the fun it could bring back to us. like walking down to the library, browsing through books, and reading many other books, meeting new people and most importantly  the exercise it brings to your health.

one of the other bad things is how technology effects on people’s social life. after the introduction of the facebook website. people has got addicted to it. and now some people can’t even live one day without logging into facebook. and i do accept that facebook is a good way to learn about other cultures and meet new people across the globe. but people these days are using this opportunity in wrong ways . according to a certain research  facebook  has caused for a big boost of the divorce rates in America. and facebook is also a place that brings freedom to the  sex addicted people. facebook is now a free place that they use for their cruel uses. as a result lots of underage children’s has been fallen victim to those kind of people because of the internet.

when it comes to technology we can use it for lots of good uses. but people need to realize to use the technology only for good things. and parents needs to know that they need to be more careful when they leave their children alone with the computer or a mobile phone. you can never be too careful..

Facebook At War Against Google+

September 24, 2011 Leave a comment


facebook seems to be battling hard to keep their throne as the worlds no1 social network while the new born Google+ opens to public users..

few days ago mark zuckerberg the CEO of facebook social network made  another huge changes to their facebook interface without even considering about the complains of most of  the users made about their previous changes . most of the facebook users are not very happy with all these new changes. some users are already leaving the site and searching for alternative’s.

its clear that with the release of  google+ , facebook wanted to make some changes to keep their users stick to their site.. but seems like facebook has failed their attempt. and now most of the users are switching to the newly born google+ website.  All the people are attracted to it because of the user friendly simple interface.

facebook has been adapting most of the google+ features while it was in the development. IE – video chat feature,  new friends listing, privacy changes to user post’s, subscription feature  are  some of those features . so now facebook has most of the feature’s of  google+. but the only difference is things are so much simple and user friendly in google+ while facebook is filled with so much features. most users are starting to compare facebook to myspace. and without any doubt they will be making some more changes to facebook very soon.  sooner or later  facebook will become the other myspace, if they don’t act on this situation and reverse these changes to make facebook more user friendly.

 

 facebook has been competing very hard to make a challenge to their new rival Google+ clearly they must have been taking precautions because the rival Company Google is already a Legend on the Internet.  but In conclusion our best guess would be that facebook will be losing lots of their users in the future just because of their recent feature updates.
