If you are sunscriber of Digital Insipration or Life Hacker, then you might have guessed already what I am serving today! But wait before you quit as there is really more to this Facebook Friends Collage trick.
Last month Amit found out "—" option by which you can create your facebook friends collage as shown above! The "—" options is also highlighted in screenshot on right side.
There are two things I have noticed about it…
Collage contained all friends! (it have beeen better if we can just create collage for selected friends!)
If you are on Facebook and Orkut at the same time, this one Facebook application is for you! It is developed by Jeetu Mirchandani (former IIT Bombay Student, working for Amazon, India) so that you can read scraps via Orkut!
Through this application you can view Orkut users profiles, photos, scrapbook, videos & fans with this! So this can be used as limited proxy in places where Orkut is banned but Facebook is not. This is the situation with most Asian countries including India where Facebook is yet to catch up with popularity of Orkut!
#Installation on Facebook
Login to your Facebook account.
Click here to go to application page. You will be greeted with a page like below. Click on Add Application Link.
It will ask for confirmation like other Facebook application. Also it will ask for inviting your friends which is optional and can be skipped!
Next Put your Orkut profile URL in field shown below…
Thats it. You will end up on a page which will look like your Orkut Profile page
This application does not require your Orkut login ID & password, but I personally feel it should take it to give more feature!
As of now claimed to be working feature – Writing Scrap is not working. Surprisingly big blogger like Amit Agrawal did not bother to test it before writing about it!
I feel the feature is implemented using fake Orkut account to send scraps on your behalf. As this applications user base grew this feature is now getting blocked by Orkut CATCHPA.
Anyway its nice start by Jeetu and another option for you to access Orkut! 🙂
Very soon your Facebook profile will be going to be in Google, Yahoo, MSN & other search results so that people searching for you will be able to reach you via facebook.
Does this mean threat to your privacy??? Not at all as you can control whether you have a public search listing, and where it appears, from your Search Privacy page. Also anyone who discovers your public search listing must register and log in to contact you via Facebook.
Here is preview of my facebook profiles public search listing…
Since your search privacy settings are set to “Everyone” (by default) you now have a public search listing. This means that friends who aren’t yet on Facebook will be able to search for you by your name from Facebook Welcome page. Public Search Listings may include your name, profile picture and few more things depending on your choice (see following screenshot).
These public search listings can be found by search engines like Google. If you do not want to show up in Google and other search engine results you can go to Search Privacy page and “uncheck” Allow my public search listing to be indexed by external search engines (ex. Google, Yahoo, MSN) option… (as shown in following screenshot)
If you are new on facebook and having problem with its security captcha i.e. image verification!
In simple words if you noticed words in the box as images while poking, messaging, or sending friend requests this is time to get rid off all this permanently as facebook now supports international phone numbers for verification.
Just follow the above link and all you will need to do is selecting your country from drop-down menu and typing your mobile number! Just note don’t add country code or any of the special character like ‘-‘ (hypen) to your number.
After this press confirm and you will be redirected to next page as well you will get a SMS on your mobile! In my case SMS took around 1 minute after clicking confirm so just wait for few minutes before pressing back button of your browser.
Once you get SMS put it on the screen waiting for you and you will be done!
Thats so simple!!! So don’t go away from facebook for its annoying image verification on each move! 😉
