Facebook Ending on March 15th!!

Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook recently announced that Facebook is going to end in March 2011. He states that managing this social networking portal has become too stressful for him. He further added that it has simply gotten out of control now and the stress of managing it has simply ruined his life; therefore, he is putting an end to this mess. This was said outside his Palo Alto office in a press conference.

From March 15th 2011, Users will not be able to access their accounts as the entire web portal will be shutting down, the Vice President of Technical Affairs, Avrat Humarthi at Facebook stated. He further stated that users should also be taking off their pictures off from the Internet as you will not be able to get them back as soon as Facebook is out of business.

Zuckerberg said that he does not think that it is a great deal and being honest, shutting down Facebook is for the better as without it, people will be going out and making real friends and that is always something good. People will not be upset about it; though, it was a hard decision to shut down Facebook.

As soon as users got to know that Facebook is shutting down, it was pretty shocking for them. They got extremely upset and such kind of reasons showed up; ‘What am I going to do without Facebook?’ ‘My life revolves around Facebook and I’m on it for more than 12 hours every day, what am I going to do in my free time now?

We all have accounts on Facebook; thus, it is advised that all of you should be removing your personal information from the social networking portal before March 15th. This is because after this date, all the videos, links, notes, and photos will be permanently erased.

Watch Out!!! Everyone is addicted to Cell Phones!!

Social networking mediums are extremely powerful tools and are a tremendously strong addiction. In reality, it has now become too obligatory that every fifth user is grabbed by its charm even while they are on the roads. This research has been recently conducted by the RAC.

The study conducted reveals that around 21 percent of motorists are adamant to check their social media accounts while they are driving and the mostly browsed ones are Twitter, Facebook, Google Maps, music, photos, and email. 11percent prefer checking their emails however, 9 percent make use of the Google Map application to find out the routes whereas Facebook attracts 7percent.

There are 31 percent people text while they are driving and this figure has increased almost three times more than the last year figures. 28 percent people talk on phone and last year the figure was just 8 percent. 53 percent just cannot wait to check their cell phones to see who is calling them and only 45 percent subjects are not bothered about checking their phones while they are on the journey.

Nevertheless, taking a call while you are driving in considered un-influential by 46 percent of the drivers whereas the same is declared for texting by 47percent. 26 percent people prefer to check their cell phones while they have stopped at a red light whereas 9percent allow themselves with the emancipation of checking their phones when they are stuck in a traffic jam.

The most worrying part is that people make use of all the social media applications and phones while they are driving. If you take you eye off the road even for a second to read any alert or checking the name of the caller; the results can be extremely fatal.

Twitter – Web 2.0 News Agency

When Twitter was initially launched, I thought a number of times why Twitter is even gaining popularity and why bloggers and social networkers are going for twitter. Once I joined twitter, I got my answer. Twitter is not just a social networking website its even more than that. In a nutshell, twitter can be defined as  microblogging; a concept for which people still needs awareness. Compared to facebook, twitter’s traffic is very low but the good thing about twitter is that most of the traffic that is coming on the website are their loyal users. They say this microblogging or the terminology “TWEETING” is just addiction.

The users of Twitter have taken it to a further level. Why would I log on to different websites to search for different types of information? I have a much better solution to it. I can simply log on to Twitter.com, follow the people who post different types of news, and read their tweets. Isn’t it great that the information and news that you are getting through twitter is filtered and you get only those news which you really want.

Lets suppose you are following User A who post technology news, User B who post interesting graphical images and User C who has a habit of posting stock prices. There is another User D who daily post politics and social news in which you aren’t that interested, so you are gonna follow User A, B and C and not User D. So, the amount and type of information you are exposed to is pretty much relevant and the way you want.

Also, if you want to share the same news with your friends who are supposedly your FOLLOWERS, you can do it by RE-TWEETING it. So news and media agencies! Twitter is becoming your direct competitor
