Good bye Fakebook

Fakebook

I logged out of Facebook, not just closed the tab, but logged out. If I need to check Facebook, I have to log back in instead of just opening the page. Facebook is a place where you meet fake friends and I’m tired of all the people who doesn’t care about me. I know, I’m a lonely person. Any idiot can have opinion on anything. I know, because I have. But on Facebook, even those idiots who are incapable of having a coherent thought can copy half-baked thoughts from someone else, a photoshopped picture would attract those mindless nitwits faster than honey attracts honeybees. I wouldn’t mind it so much, if they had the ability to listen to reason and correct themselves. Those handful of people who I consider friends don’t need Facebook to contact me and I don’t need facebook to remember their birthdays. I would probably log in …

DoFollow Enabled

Over the last week, this blog has gone through some subtle but drastic changes. The changes were done with a few things in mind that will improve your experience on my blog. Faster loading: One of the feature that was removed from the blog was drag-to-share from Meebo. Previously you could select a few text or click and hold an image to share a post on Twitter, Facebook, e-mail etc. But this was not a feature that would be used often. The Meebo bar at the bottom of the page was also scrapped. A site which loads faster is better than a feature that is seldom used. Previously the home page would take about 12-13 seconds to load. By removing certain features which were not used that often, I was able to bring down the load time to just above 7 minutes. My blog is now 40% faster.   Link Luv: …

Invites to Quora

I have invites for Quora, a social search site launched earlier this year by a bunch of ex-Facebookers (including former CTO Adam D’Angelo andCharlie Cheever (who previously led Facebook Platform and Facebook Connect)–and which was just funded at an $86M valuation. If you would like an invite to Quora, just ask for in the comment. Make sure you are putting your correct e-mail address in the e-mail field so that I know where to send the invite to. If you put your email address in the comments, you might get an invite from some generous fellow, but you might get a lot of spam from even more generous fellows. You will have to use either your Facebook or Twitter account to authenticate to Quora first time. To make my life easier, I have created the following form. This will ensure your email stays out of public eyes and I don’t have to copy …

Post-a-day – Day 2

So I decided that I will make the blog public again. So far very few people knew about it, and I never felt it necessary to invite people to the blog. However, yesterday, for no particular reason, I updated the site field on Facebook. And right now, I am updating the same on my Twitter Profile. I have absolutely no idea why I am doing this, since I was very satisfied with the way things have been going till now. Maybe it has something to do with the postaday2011 challenge. Anyhow, I spend the last 2 hours looking at other posts tagged with postaday2011 and I couldn’t find anything inspiring. Is postaday2011 too much that the quality of content will be very low? Maybe I should switch to postaweek2011. WordPress does provide some great “apps” (the word app has been voted as the word of the year by the American Dialect Society) …

Facebook is blocking me

It seems I am importing my blog too frequently. Obviously I would want to test the functionality of Facebook, and they should have built their software to check whether I am importing the same posts to test. I am not much impressed, but still the fact that I am able to import my blog makes me stick with it. I had one of the greatest time yesterday. I had gone to an eco-tourism spot with a few of my friends and had the best time in a long time. More on that in my next post, hopefully today evening.
