Beware of the Facebook Account Hackers

I was checking my facebook profile last week when this message saying hackers finding new ways of hacking the accounts of the users caught my attention. So I checked my settings, reset them, changed the user id and password as per the specifications. I still wanted to find out more. So i just googled the words, facebook hacking on Google and was shocked to find out many links that provided ways to successfully hack peoples facebook accounts, boasting of a guaranteed access to other persons account.
Facebook Hacker

 Even to think that there are people who are very interested in viewing the details of the other person gives me a sickening feeling. And these people are most of the times on the friend’s list or acquaintance list of that person’s facebook account. This shows the level of intolerance growing among us. Even greater is the surprise to know that the hackers have so much free time to kill. The value of privacy, dignity and relationships is on a decline. Nevertheless, those of us whose accounts have not been hacked yet, have to continue protecting them, guarding them from the robbers, the hackers.

A few simple steps like,

Never click on the link which asks you to enter your user id and password to log in and claim the gift.

Never enter your log in id and password to the link which says your email account or your facebook account has been compromised. This link will prompt you to enter the user id and password. You can directly go to the sign in page of your email account or facebook account and try entering the user id and password there. If there is a problem with your account you will get information to the sign in page itself.

Hiding your email id and date of birth details from the profile page saves the account from being hacked most of the time. Mail id and date of birth are the 2 most essential pieces of information hackers need.

Following the safe route of a password with more than 8 characters, and with a combination of numbers and alphabets, capital and small and use of special characters like $,&,\,/ is always helpful.
For example, Vidya can be typed as, \/1DYa _ 0/\/\ (VIDYA_ OM) which cannot be hacked by the tools used by the hackers.

Choosing the secure browsing mode while using facebook limits the other external apps from harming your profile.

Facebook also offers its users the option of entering a security code every time a user tries to log in from an unknown device. The security code is privy to the user and hence helps keep the hackers at bay.

Always uncheck the option which says ‘keep me logged in’. This makes sure you have to enter your user id and password every time you want to log in.

It is always advisable to log out after accessing facebook every time.

Upgrading the browser to the latest version is a sure shot way to keep away from the phishing sites as the browser will always warn while navigating to an unknown or suspected phishing site.

So let us outsmart the hackers!!

Facebook can Become an Unbreakable Prison

Facebook – Why do I hate it?
10th anniversary of Facebook was recently celebrated on 04 February 2014. And the meter of Facebook’s achievements did not stop. For example, Facebook has a strong presence of over 1.23 billion active users as of January 2014. Facebook has an approximate market capitalization of over $134 billion. Facebook CEO also appeared on the list of biggest charity donors. Yet we find many of the facebook veterans or members who have used facebook for the last decade or so are getting wary of the site. The list of people who hate facebook is increasing. Surprising? Not really. We all know that. For example, from

‘Did you see the wedding photos of XYZ on facebook?’
‘Did you see her baby’s photo on facebook?’
‘Did u see their honeymoon photos on facebook?’ to
‘Did you see the rain photos on facebook?’
Did you see the morning sun’s photos on facebook?’
‘Did you see the photos of the sumptuous lunch on facebook?’
‘Did you see the photos of the twinkling stars and reminiscent moon on facebook?

Well the answer is no, I have not seen any of these photos on facebook because i thought it would be sensible enough to actually witness the beauty of the events by being present at the venue physically,  rather than being glued to facebook all day long experiencing the virtual world,  and being amused over the pictures. Why did I choose to do so? Of course there are many things happening simultaneously in the surrounding. Like the morning rays of the sun also bring the soft tunes of the birds chirping away happily.  The early morning weather freshens the soul. Not just the bride and the groom but the entire display of colours at a wedding appeals to me much more than the picture perfect photos of bride and groom on facebook. I can get wet in the rain outside, listen to the thunder, and see the lightening. I sharpen my god gifted senses when I actually experience rain rather than watching the pictures on facebook. Most importantly I receive, experience all this information first hand, unadulterated unlike on facebook.
Hate Facebook

I can choose to see what I want, listen to what I like, smell what appeals to me and taste the actual sumptuous lunch by physically being present in the rain, at the wedding, at the lunch and so on. I get the freedom when I step outside the virtual world into the reality.  The privacy settings have to be changed over and over again. Over usage of facebook decreases the productivity of the employees. Overcrowding has given a hard time to cops for events organized on facebook. Hacking is a problem which facebook is still struggling with. Profiles of children under the age of 18 go unchecked. Facebook addiction has invited a variety of psychological disorders especially among the teens. These are a few of the many problems that are increasing at an alarming rate.  

 Using facebook as a pass time once in a while is ok but when facebook becomes a way of life for some, it is sure to bring along with it a plethora of unending, ever increasing, physical, psychological problems.

Facebook can become an unbreakable prison.  The lesser we use it the better.

Don't forget to share  this with facebook addicted friends.

Features of


   Just like other mail services, Outlook .com uses Ajax programming and supports various browsers. It also allows keyboard controls that can help users navigate around the mailbox without the inconvenience of using a mouse. For  more techsavvy users, query syntaxes help retrieve search indexes, apply message filters, organize mails by folder and sender and prompt of e-mail addresses while typing.  Now users can export contacts to CSV files, rich text formatting, make rich text signatures, scan for spam and viruses and use the mailbox in different languages.
Privacy and Security wanted to challenge privacy settings and hence doesn’t scan users’ attachments and use them for advertisement purposes, unlike gmail. E-mails are safe and personal conversations are ad-free. This is a great relief to those who get annoyed by gmail’s constant ads with information taken from user e-mails. DMARC specifications are used to provide better security and transmissions happen using the Extended Validation Certificate. Now, Microsoft has added a two step validation to make it more secure.

App Integration now integrates the mailbox with Office Web Apps to allow viewing and editing important applications such as Microsoft Word, Powerpoint and Excel. This feature can be applied to documents that are attached in the E-mail messages. SkyDrive can be used to save these documents and they can be directly sent to senders. SkyDrive lets users to save documents upto 25 GB at 50 MB each. These documents can be shared between other users. This feature is similar to that of Google Docs.

Sweep and Filters offers a ‘virtual broom’ that allows users to delete or move large number of conversations into any folder based on the sender’s information. Once the sweep occurs, users can save the settings so that each time the particular sender’s e-mail goes directly to a particular folder. Custom sweep rules can be set up using not only sender’s or recipient’s information, also subject and attachments in the mail. also features a one-click filter, which allows users to filter all e-mails based on various rules, whether they are unread, from People Service list, from mailing lists or Windows Live groups. Categories will be formed for quick views so users can access these groups of filtered mail easily.

Categories and Quick Views

   Users can set up different labels to create categories and using quick view, access them easily. Multiple categories can be selected for each piece of e-mail and new ones can be created now and then, when the user wishes so.

Instant Messaging and Skype Integration

    Users can send IMs to other contacts and also make Skype calls. The Skype calls can be made within using the Skype desktop client. 

Windows Live Hotmail


   Think of E-mail and Gmail comes to your mind? Well, it had not been this way always. Ask your father or uncles and they would still be using Hotmail. Teenagers of the late 90’s would know this pioneer in E-mail services too. It is back now, with a new avatar and chic looks. One of the world’s first webmail services, Hotmail was founded in 1996 by Sabeer Bhatia and Jack Smith in Mountain View, California. In 1997, Microsoft acquired Hotmail for about $400 million and launched MSN Hotmail, which was later renamed as Windows Live Hotmail. The last version of this Webmail was released in 2011 and awaits future updates. Windows Live Hotmail is being used by about 360 million users and comes in 36 different languages. Recently Hotmail was replaced with the page, and as the name says, the site resembles Microsoft Outlook. also features Metro Design Language, unlimited storage, Ajax, Calendar, SkyDrive, People and Skype.

The Security Hitch

   In the year 1999, Hotmail faced severe security problems, with hackers revealing that anybody can log into a hotmail account with the password ‘eh’. This incident was widespread and made hotmail very infamous. In 2011, another security hitch was discovered. Around this time, hotmail became very unpopular. Thousands of hackers got access to numerous accounts and millions of accounts were hacked. Competition to Hotmail did not appear till 2004, when Google announced Gmail. Gmail featured greater storage, speed and better interface. Hence the mail service with advanced features really pushed Hotmail to improve their interface and usability better.

The New Avatar

    When Hotmail was re-launched as Windows Live Hotmail, it was released as a beta version to some testers. The new interface was made from scratch and was a vast improvement from Hotmail by being faster, simpler and safer. Slowly updates were released to the users on better features such as more storage space, better interface and better experience. Signing in and access speeds were increased and user feedback was used to make it better.

Further, more themes and Instant Messaging made this web-mail service more sought after. Users could exchange IMs with their contacts on Windows Live Messenger. A new roll-out called “re-invented Hotmail” had Instant Actions, scheduled sweep and other categories.


    Last year, made its first public appearance. Windows Live Hotmail users were able to upgrade to/downgrade from it. Since February, Hotmail users were forced to move to but still have the option of taking up either or retain their addresses. As of May this year, 400 million users actively use Aren’t you one of them? Sign up today and feel the difference! 

Running a Successful Facebook Page - 5 Ways to get likes

1. Choose the Theme and the Name

   First step is deciding what your Facebook fan page would be about and naming it right. If you run a site or a blog, you should be naming your page the same, so it would make your business popular. This name will help your customers find you while they search or even accidentally come across. There is a 25 character limitation on the fan page name, but short names are better remembered, so good!

2. Great URL and Greater Description

   You’d want to consider giving your page a fancy URL. This will look good while helping customers remember who you are. Description is the ‘About’ column on the page that will talk about your site, your business and provide a link to view it as well.

3. Search Engine Optimization

   Facebook pages are indexed by google and other search engines. So, filling up the description of your page with keywords will help increase your page rank. This kind of page optimization will help build up your page popularity which in turn will help your business as well.

4. Design your Page Well

   Not only the best content, but also a good page design wins you some points. Make your facebook page look attractive by incorporating a great design. Only an attractive page will bring in readers and fans. Remember that we’re all attracted by first impressions, so upload a superb cover picture that will make people go to your page on seeing it. If you do not have a great photo, you can make a good logo for your business. Either that, or you can hire a photographer or designer to do the above for you. While you have a good cover picture, do not ignore your profile photo. This deliberately comes up every time you post something, so it extremely important as well.

5. Page Promotion

   Now that your page is ready with great design and valuable content, you are now ready to put in online and promote it. For newbies, the best way to make a page popular is to request your friends to like it. You can send like requests to your friends, family and acquaintances who have an interest in your brand. Your present customers will provide your some likes when invited. Add a facebook Like button on your site that will help existing customers to like the page. Ensure you have regular activity that keeps your fans’ newsfeed updated. This will keep you popular. Add at least 2-3 new posts every day. Make sure you do not spam other’s walls, this may make them un ‘like’ your page!

Apple Imports NOT Banned In the US

   That’s a relief to all the Apple fans out there that the trade body’s decision to ban Apple products was vetoed by the government. This ban could have meant that some Apple products like the iPhones and iPads would not have been allowed to get imported to the US and sold here. The reason for the ban was that, the standards set by the Standards Developing Organizations (SDO) have incorporated some technical advances that are subject to the commission’s determination. This statement means that the patent owners could pose potential harms to offer licenses. Even the European Union has similar policies that could ban product import and sales in that continent.

    Samsung, the rival of Apple, is not too happy with this decision. It is because, Samsung has been negotiated to take up a license but Apple remains without one. This veto, that comes as a surprise after almost 25 years,  doesn’t stop the legal battle between the two electronics giants.  The veto was necessary as there are many companies that are supporters of Apple, like the AT&T. Even if the ban were to be implemented, Apple would somehow handle the situation and make way out of it, some researchers said. However, an Apple spokeswoman said that, “Samsung was wrong to abuse the patent system in this way”.

   The Apple products that were banned were the iPhone 4 and some variations of the iPad 2, as they violated some patent held by Samsung. The iPhone 4 is the older model of the Apple phone that is being sold even today. This legal battle between Apple and Samsung has been going on ever since Apple sued Samsung that some features of the Android phone copy that of the iPhone’s. Last year, Samsung was asked to pay Apple one billion dollars for the patent infringement, but the amount was later reduced to 450 million. This trial is not settled, as is awaiting a rematch in the court.

   It would have been impossible for the government to ban the single most taxpayer in the country. Yes, Apple pays huge taxes in the US. But Samsung is the largest seller of smartphones here. It outsells Apple by almost double the amount. However, the profit made by the latter is still huge. Why- Apple phones are more expensive and reliable. Like they say,  ‘once an Apple customer, always an Apple customer’. 

The Who, What and Where of Facebook - Security Tips

    Great news is that, you can now completely control the 3 W’s of facebook privacy. The Who, What and the Where. Who can access What in your profile and from Where. On your homepage, you can view the sidebar called Privacy Settings and Tools, that will show you a list of Who can see What on your profile. There’s a tab called ‘Who can see my stuff’ where you can manage the viewers of your future posts. This can be used when you’re posting any status by choosing the audience selector. But, when you change it in the settings menu, it remains as default for any post of yours unless it’s changed by you.
Facebook Security
    Review all posts you’re tagged in: This tab means that you can use the Activity Log to see every update of yours before it goes to your Facebook profile. You could be tagged in a new photo, what you listen to on Spotify and any status you’re tagged in will seek your permission before updating  these details on your profile. This log is important, as you can also choose who can see your updates and whether you want any particular update to appear on your timeline or not.

    Limit the audience for past posts: If your privacy settings were set such that all your previous posts were viewable by “Friends of friends” and now you change your settings, you can apply the current settings to all your old posts as well. This will increase the privacy settings of not only your present activity, but of your old activities as well, which is a good thing, in case you want to change your privacy settings. This way you know for sure that none of your old posts are set to “Public”.
    From where can People look you up: You have the option to set who can look you up, using either your e-mail or your name. If you can set that everyone can look you up using your name, then anybody who knows your name can search and find you on facebook. If you set the email option, anybody who has access to your email id can look up and find you. This is a safe option as most of your friends/colleagues only would have your email id.
    Linking your profile to Search engines: In case you don’t want your profile to show up in search engines, you can turn this feature off. If somebody searches your name in Google,  they will not find your facebook profile.
    All these settings in facebook privacy are easy to understand, but need to paid attention to, in order to tweak them as you want to.

The iPad Mini-2 Releasing Later this Year

    It was heard earlier today that Apple has ordered panels for its iPad from its screen supplier, LG. The main reasons for these are the impending release of the iPad – 5 and the iPad mini 2, the former followed quickly by the latter. The iPad mini 2 uses the retina panel technology. Almost two and half to three million sets of the tablet are going to be released this year end, probably be delayed by a few months and get a 2014 launch, but again, it’s a rumor. LG, the maker of the retina display panels is making new progress, promising spectacular display of the Apple baby.

    October, which was initially marked for the release of the tablet, may not be when the action really happens. The launch of the iPad 5 in September could likely delay the mini’s release. However, LG’s report denied these rumors. Last week it was said that the delay could be caused by the indecision of Apple whether to implement the retina displays in the mini or not; but now we know for sure that these are definitely coming. Yet another news that reached the ears of many a gadget freak is that, the shortage of these retina panels could be what’s causing the delay. One particular report addressing this concern stated that, two versions of the iPad mini could be released, the earlier one without the retina display, and the later one, with the same.

    From all these, one can conclude that a retina display device is definitely coming, but it could be early 2014, practically. This tablet would appear thinner, feel lighter and sport an almost bezel-free design. Other upsides of this gadget are a better processor and the obvious display. The iPad 5, however will sport the latest OGS (One Glass Solution) touch panel made by the Taiwanese company TPK. It would be tough competition and a cause of joy for all the Apple fans out there to see which tab is going to be the best this year(or next!)

Apple Geared up for fall release for Ipad 5

    This fall, the world would be witnessing the release of the Apple Ipad 5, which promises to be better than the best! Apple has allegedly placed order for a large amount of touch panels for this device, the next in line to join the family of quality tablets and we at fbsavvy expect the release date to be during Oct-Nov this year. Come holiday season, check out on our first-hand review on this amazing device! Apple fans this year have one more thing to celebrate! The tablet is incorporating the new OGS(One Glass Solution) touch panel, made by a Taiwan company, popular in the market for their capacitive touch sensors and monitors. A little birdie on the market told us that they would receive many more orders for the Ipad-5 display pieces within the next two months!
    This unique, first of its time touch panel uses a single piece of glass that does both the jobs of being a cover lens as well as a sensor substitute. Incorporating the glass as a sensor will not only reduce the cost of the device, it also makes it lighter and slimmer. These panels are relatively cheaper than the G/G-type panels that were used by the previous iPad versions. The OGS is being dubbed as a “thin film touch screen technology” that is going to make the tab lighter by at least 20% compared to the iPad-2.
    We can expect the iPad-2 to be slimmer with a lesser margin area, so the screen size would be optimum. The OGS promises the same. Further, we hear that the tablet’s resolution would be a whopping 2048X1535 pixels, which if true, would make it the most spectacular display ever. Its backlight would feature one instead of the earlier two light tubes. The end of the third quarter of 2013 would be a profitable one for both Apple and TPK, the Taiwanese OGS touch screen manufacturing company.
    This company is expected to manufacture the touch screen of the iPad mini as well, which was rumored to be releasing later this year. However, fans of the Ipad Mini should wait a little more for its successor, the I-pad Mini 2, as its launch is delayed because of its big sister, the I-pad5.
