Profile Tag Review Empowers You To Approve And Reject Facebook Tags

No comments
A TV commercial caught my attention last night. It was about a kid who received a SMS message from a friend telling him that he was tagged on scandalous photos that were taken during a party where he got drunk. He immediately jump out of his bed to go to the nearest internet cafe to untag himself from the photos. Unfortunately for him, it was already too late in the evening which why the cafe is already closed. No one would like to be in this situation thats why Facebook constantly improving their privacy features. Just yesterday Facebook announces the release of Profile Tag Review which empowers users to approve or reject any photo or post they are tagged in before it's visible to anyone else on their profile.

I mentioned on my last blog post my frustrations toward the new messenger UI of Facebook. I suggested on that post that you should use a desktop messenger instead. But if you prefer on staying on your browser but would like to eliminate the chat bar and offline users then install Facebook Chat Bully extension for Firefox and Chrome. Once installed, you have to enable the extension's options by going to your browser's extension page. For Chrome, there are three options: hide offline users, hide idle users and hide user avatars.

Free Desktop Facebook Chat Messenger With fTalk

No comments
The new Facebook chat interface irritates me. I don't know what they are thinking to design the chat UI that way. The previous interface was OK and you can customize to see friends that are online. On the new UI, you can see everything even offline friends and to find friends that doesn't appear on the list, you'll have to type the name on the search box available. Fortunately, I don't have to bear with this changes made by Facebook because I can use a desktop chat client called fTalk. This application allows you to chat with your Facebook friends on a clean and minimalist interface. Once installed, launch fTalk and login with your Facebook account details. You will be redirected to the authorization page via your default browser.

Easily Create Project Timelines In PowerPoint 2007 And 2010 With Office Timeline

3 comments
MS PowerPoint is the most appropriate tool to use when presenting highlights and overview of an event or project. For example, in software development projects, my choice of tool to create a project schedule plan is MS Project but whenever I present it to top management of the company, I use PowerPoint. Usually I manually draw the timeline in PowerPoint using shapes and arrows. An easier and better way to do this is to download and install Office Timeline add-in. Once you installed the add-in, it will start a wizard which will guide you through the process of project timelines creation.
