In Facebook - Not Friends or Blocked? Not a big deal!

You have been having some creepy guys out there stalking at you. So you blocked them from your Facebook friends list; you get relaxed then. But by passing days you may find out that they are still watching you. Here's how people actually stalk on facebook.

Handling blocks(or not friends): Just search the name of the person you want to view and click on it. You will be taken to his profile and see his status updates, photos and other stuffs. BUT, If he has perked with the security settings and stoped unknown peoples from viewing his post then you won't be able to see his status updates. 

Handling blocks(blocked from post): A friend has blocked you from their posts? No worries, you can still find out what they've been up to. Type their name in the search bar and click on See more Results for X. Check out the list of events and wall posts and photo comments under Posts by Friends. If you want more, go for View All Posts by Friends.

Photos: To view a photo album put up by somebody who is not on your friend list, find a friend of theirs who allows public viewing of their wall. Now, amongst all their news feeds, you'll see: X commented on Y's photo. Click on the photo, and just keep clicking next. *Wink Wink* you just saw their entire album without actually being friends.

The Last Resort: Make a new facebook account and fake him/her as friend, send friend request and wait till he accepts. Rest you know.

YourVersion - Discovering your Interests
A collator of personalized web content. YourVersion is supposedly "the best\t way to discover new and relevant content tailored to your interests". Searching everything from videos to blogs, Tweets to websites, and products to news, YourVersion can be your daily source of customized content. Called a "Real-time Discovery Engine" bye the company. YourVersion gives you real-time results/updates not based on your specific interests. It is also significantly different from an RSS reader because it does not rely on your subscriptions to display content, but instead, compiles content real-time based on your interests.

YourVersion has a simple and uncluttered interface. Simply feed in your "interests" when signing up (you can add/delete new interests at any time). and find your real-time listings of the latest relevant content that is filtered by one or all interests. Have a slow Internet connection? Then click on "Condensed View" for an even simpler text-based listing interface.

You can bookmark interesting content on the site itself, and return to it simply and easily, whenever you want. You can also allow the site to auto-organise pages by interest. Sharing is especially easy on YourVersion, allowing for facebook, Twitter, and email-based sharing options, right on the listing page itself. You can also give a thumb rating to each article/piece of content.

Other interesting application of YourVersion are the iPhone app and mobile site, as well as the easy-to use firefox toolbar. For sign-up you can also do it with your Twitter accout.

The site was launched in September 2009 and has won numerous awards at prestigious events.

Monday, May 17, 2010 - Distribute your blog to twitter, facebook and more.
Whenever I post anything to my blog I always link it to my facebook and twitter account. It is little slow to log in to the accounts and publish it. So recently I have tried this application called It is a free application that lets you publish your posts to your facebook, twitter and other accounts. I will let you know more after this.
Post Update: When I posted this post and checked on my twitter page there was no tweet about the post available on my blog. So I logged on to my account then checked my twitter page; it showed my post then. At last  works. Must had been an error or my misjudgement for it not showing my post at first. Anyway I will be using it for quite a while now.
Post Update:Now anyway works fine. Whenever I post new posts then it delivers it automatically which is what it is supposed to do. The previously informed problem would never have existed as might have taken some time to post on twitter and facebook.

Online life together with Threadsy

Following the trend right now in my blog here is what you need for your many social connections to get in one place. Gone are the days when you could make do with a single email account for all your social connections. But now with the likes of facebook and twitter you may well be close to abandoning your email altogether. Threadsy is a new web service which attempts to salvage this mess by bringing in a social context and relevance to your email inbox.

Threadsy allows you to pull in emails from multiple accounts into one inbox, where you can manage all your messages. Unlike the traditional way of forwarding all mails to one account, or using Gmail's external email checking features, Threadsy gives you more control over each inbox separately as well. Adding an email address is simple as entering email address and password. If you use either Gmail, Yahoo!, Windows Live, AOL, or Mobile Me, you are done. YOu can also add custom IMAP account if you use other services.

While email is central feature of this application, the main premise is to add social connectivity. It lets you connect with Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Threadsy divides your communications into two columns -"inbound" and "unbound" panels. The "inbound" column shows all the messages that are addressed to you. The "unbound" column lists all social updates from your connected sites.

Threadsy makes good use of your social data, adding profile images to your email conversations to make the experience richer. As you view an email message from a friend, Threadsy displays all their social data aggregated from multiple sources.

The best thing is that it is browser based. No need to download.

TweetDeck - The ultimate Twitter and Facebook Application
Guys I just love it! I really do. I even left Digsby(but still use for msn and yahoo) for it. The first wow factor is it's the interface. Its looks so beautiful and well managed. Making groups for seperate stuffs on facebook looks great and is easy to see whats happening.

It is a free application that lets you connect with your Twitter, Facebook, MySpace and LinkedIn Accounts. It is supported by Adobe Air(no wonder how the interface looks) so you will need to install Adobe Air first to your computer which is not a problem because it is automatically downloaded when installing the app.

You can update your status, comment on others, like other comments, upload picture, share links and do almost anything you do on your regular browser based facebook. Try it, you will love it.
Download it from

Digsby - Everything you need on one place
AIM, MSN, Yahoo, ICQ, Google Talk, Jabber, and Facebook all in one place thats Digsby. Before using it i had been using the same old yahoo messenger and windows messenger to chat with my buddies. The separate applications not just take up more space and slow your computer but also slows your working speed. Now having all of them is really a relief. So here's what it does. Straight from its website.
Instant Messaging
  • One combined buddy list for all your AIM, MSN, Yahoo, ICQ, Google Talk, Jabber, and Facebook Chat Accounts.
  • Manage multiple conversations with tabbed conversation windows. You can drag tabs out into their own windows for important conversations.
  • Rename contacts with an alias so you don't have to remember buddy names like 'giantsfan123'.
  • If one of your friends has more than one IM account you can combine them into a single merged contact to eliminate duplicate buddies.
  • Send your friends SMS messages right from the IM window.
  • The InfoBox lets you check everyone's status message and profile just by moving your mouse down the list.
  • Changing your status has never been easier. just one click right on the buddy list!
  • Multitask while you chat. Minimize the IM window and you see popups of new IM's. Best of all, you can reply right from the popup and get back to what you were doing.
  • Log conversation history and find the information you need our search-enabled log viewer.
  • And so much more.
  • Manage your Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo Mail, AOL/AIM Mail, IMAP, and POP accounts right from digsby.
  • Get popup notifications when new email arrives. Clicking a popup takes you right to the message with auto-login into webmail accounts.
  • The email InfoBox gives you a snapshot of your unread messages with just one click
  • Perform actions such as "Mark as Read" or "Report Spam" right from the email InfoBox.
  • Send emails to your friends right from the IM window. The email is sent directly from any account digsby is tracking for you.
Social Networking
  • Stay up to date with everything happening on your Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and LinkedIn accounts.
  • Receive alerts of events such as new friend requests, messages, group invites, etc.
  • The social network InfoBox gives you a real time NewsFeed of what your friends are up to. Everything from new photos, to status updates, to upcoming birthdays is just a click away.
  • Set your Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn status right from Digsby.
  • Customize digsby with application skins to give it a personal look and feel.
  • Change the way your conversations look with themes – everything from simple AIM-style windows to 3D conversation bubbles.
  • Complete control over the layout of buddies on the buddy list. Change everything from buddy icon size to whether or not to show a snippet of their away message.
  • Sort your buddy list how ever you want! You can organize buddies manually, by status, by service, by name or by log size to place those you communicate with most at the top. You can even choose a secondary sorting method.
  • Customizable notification system lets you choose what events you want to be alerted about and how.
  • Digsby offers complete synchronization between computers and installations. Everything from the skin you chose to your pre-defined status messages follows you from place to place.
  • You can place a widget on your blog, website, or social network profile so you can chat with visitors right from digsby.
  • Manage multiple simultaneous file transfers from one simple transfer manager.
