Reading is anyday my favorite pastime, while not writing; I can be seen reading. A few days back I just thought about reading articles related to Facebook addiction. I was amazed to see the web world is full of articles related to the ever mounting Facebook craze. Articles that read “How to get rid of Facebook addiction”? “How to avoid getting distracted by Facebook”? caught my attention.
Deleting your wall, turning off the email notifications, getting time limiter plugin, deleting some friends from the friends list were the suggested tips to avoid yourself getting much distracted by Facebook.
One greatest innovation in the internet world is Facebook. Not only mature people, even kiddos have their account on one of the amazing communicating and social networking tool. The ever increasing number of people registering makes the team swell with pride and they feel motivated to come up with new features to make people feel good about having registered on Facebook. While school/college students use Facebook to communicate with their friends and keep themselves updated with what’s latest in the lives of their friends, there are many people who use it with some purpose in mind.
Yes, I’m talking about the business entrepreneurs who actually use such social networking sites like Facebook for connecting with more and more people all over and let them know about their existence in the web world.
March 2011 seems to be looking good in history of browsers. Three major players of best browsers came with their most awaited versions in their history. First of all, Microsoft launched totally revamped version of Internet Explorer called Internet Explorer 9 with some great features and functionality, then Google updated Google Chrome to Google Chrome 11 with speeds enhancements and revamped settings page. And last but not the least, Mozilla released its new Firefox 4 to the public few days back.

Facebook – one of the most popular social networking site in the world always come up with the new and exciting features to enhance the user experience. Facebook bought new features in recent times are Facebook Page redesign, Facebook profile redesign and Photo Viewer aka “Lightbox” “Theatre view”. Though, Facebook Page redesign and Profile redesign was mostly welcomed by the a large group of Facebook users and certainly used both of these features to its fullest. But, one feature that comes under a lot of fire is Facebook Photo Viewer that seems to not much appreciated by the Facebook users at all.
Basically, new Photo Viewer in Facebook allows you to browse the Facebook images in a lightbox effect. In simple words, when you click a photo in Facebook news feeds or in album, it pops up an “Theatre” viewer with making all Facebook page in black background.
Google – one of the most trusted company, giant search engine and also known for producing great products and services. One of them is Gmail, one of the best and most popular email service offered by Google. But, you know everything is not flawless even Gmail too and we have seen evidence of such a flaw last weekend. I know most of you were not aware of what happen because there are chances that your Gmail was working absolutely fine. But you know there were some unlucky Gmail users whose accounts were all erased without any reason.
There were about 0.02 percent of all Gmail users or roughly 40,000 of the 200 million accounts were affected due to the “unexpected bug” that makes all their Gmail data including mails, contacts, calendars, events erased.
Facebook Page Redesign – it’s already on the floor and I believe many of you started working on it. This time Facebook has done full redesign of the Facebook Pages. The new Facebook Page layout looks and operate more like individual user profiles. The latest changes in this update are page admins can now post and make comments on other Facebook Pages by opting “login as Page” feature. The top bar is also replaced by the relevant photos just like we already seen in user profiles layout.
The most noticeable difference that you look into new Facebook Page redesign is the new layout. The left-hand menu is now used for navigation menu and left-hand “Information” box is also gone. The right-hand menu has also been redesigned and introducing a new section that shows page admins and users that how many of their friends have also “liked” the same page.
