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.

    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.

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.  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 a

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.

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.
