Hi All, presenting before you a new Blog The Wandering Thoughts. Hope you guys like it..!! Appreciate your feedback..!!



Do you believe in Mark Zuckerberg..??

Well, to be honest . i don't. though i have my friend circle on facebook only. i still dont believe Mark.. you must be wondering why i don't ..even though i am a addicted to facebook..!!

Have you noticed the recent changes in facebook.. are you aware of facebook email service...??
Well, its been more than a year facebook is providing the email service . mine is adlaks@facebook.com

Yours is {username/profileid}@facebook.com

SO now you got one more email id.. how to check those emails coming to your facebook accounts.
Click on messages on the left hand side of your homepage.. you'll be having the email sent to you by others.

WOW!! Facebook is giving us too many features and still i dont believe Mark Zuckerberg. There are many reasons actually.

Have you noticed that that Mark has imposed this service on you, whether you like it or not. Follow the below steps:

1. Go to your profile.
2. Check About Me Section.
3. Is your email showing something like this? 


Don't panic.. you can change it through your settings.

Seems like Mark wants to overtake the email hosting service also.

Now, second thing which you need to check is your friend list. Check and revert back.

You'll find plenty of names without any profile pic. These all are the deleted profiles.
The deleted profiles would be only those which have a name with them and no other information.
You don't believe me. Go click on any one of them and you'll be redirect back to your friend list.
So, if they were really deleted. how you can see them.. I have no answer.
Seems like the rumours of keeping the data of users with Mark is still there on the fb servers.

I am not against facebook. I just want to remind my friends to be cautious on social networks.


Happy and Safe Surfing..!!

P.S. : No offences for anyone..!

How to be Invisible in Facebook

By Nitin Adlakha On September 26, 2010 0 comments

Hi All, presenting before you a new Blog The Wandering Thoughts. Hope you guys like it..!! Appreciate your feedback..!!


Facebook is an integral part of our daily life. Sometimes we might get irritated through those people whom we dont like to talk and we either have to close our chat window or logout for sometimes.
Just like another messenger service provider Facebook do not provide the option to get invisible. But it has an another option through which we can select whom we want to see online.

Here are the simple steps:

1. Goto your Chat window.
2. Click on Friends list and you'll see an option saying create a new list.

3. Enter the name of your list and press Enter.
4. Your new list is ready now and you can add your friends name.
5. Now you can switch on/off your list as according to your wish and the other person will never come to know about your presence.
6. You can also edit your list whenever you wants to.
7. To edit your list goto the name of your list in your chat window and put your cursor on the list name, then you'll see an option to edit your list.



Feel free to ask more tricks on facebook....
will soon be back with some new stuff, till then
SAYONARA......!!!!

Hide Text in Notepad

Hi All, presenting before you a new Blog The Wandering Thoughts. Hope you guys like it..!! Appreciate your feedback..!!


Here's a trick to hide your text in the window's default text editor i.e. Notepad using Command Prompt :)
but this trick works only on NTFS File System.

Steps:
  1. Open Command Prompt. Start--> Run and type cmd.
  2. Now goto your desired  location where you want to have your file saved. Lets say Desktop then type cd desktop and enter.
  3. Now type in Command Prompt the following lines.notepad anyname.txt:hidden 


  4. Now type your data and save(Ctrl+S) the file.
  5. Browse to the file location and Open anyname.txt, you will not be able to see any data.
  6. To retrieve the hidden data open Command Prompt and type the same command notepad anyname.txt:hidden 
U people may have watched in some sci-fi movie where a person gets a message for tha accomplishment of his mission which destructs when he read it out.
Even you may have got desire to do the same.
So the wait is over...Come out from the fantasy world and enjoy your dream...


Yes You too can send a Self Destructing Message to someone. I found Destructing Message a web service which does exactly that. It allows you to send email anonymously to a email address you want.




You could choose the message to destruct within 15 seconds as a minimum to a 5 minutes maximum.

The email is sent to the addressee but message is not show but a link is given to the person. Once you visit the link you can view the message and a counter counts down the seconds when the message will self destruct.;)

Enjoy n Drop-in Your Comments....!!!!

Happy Surfing....!!!!
