No More Phone and Address Sharing for Facebook Apps for Now

Facebook recently made a decision that bashed by critics due to the possible risk on users' privacy and security. Facebook allowed application developers, particularly the app itself, to get access to users phone numbers and addresses when users grant permission to the application.

Many Facebook users often grant all the permissions the app asks, as they are usually not aware of possible risks or simply because that’s the only way they can use the app – Grant Permission!

Imagine you can’t play everybody’s favorite Farmville because it’s asking for your contact info and your hesitant to give your details. Yeah for sure will end up granting Farmville the permission it requires. But do you know how will Zynga use your phone and address details? How risky!

This certainly a big threat on users privacy. So Facebook was forced to halt this feature for now due to numerous protests with their decision.

Scheduled Pagerank Toolbar Update | Google 2011 Update of Pagerank

Many webmasters were expecting to have their websites pagerank updated when the year 2011 entered but no green bar movement happened in the Google toolbar. So, many assumed it will be up in the coming days, yet up to this point no pagerank update from Google has been confirmed.

Based on the dates confirmed that there is an update in the pagerank reveal a pattern of 3-month interval for next pagerank update i.e January, April, July and October. The last confirmed pagerank update though happened way back in April 2010. So no page rank update happened during July and October of same year.

Why not? Will Google deprecate the concept of pagerank that’s why it did not post updates during the months it supposed to be updated? You will notice from Google blog posts, also you can hear from Matt Cutts, head of Google Spam Division, that pagerank is just one of the 200 plus factors that determine the position of the page in the Search Engine Result Page (SERP). Adding that webmasters should not…

Some Reasons Why Choose Samsung Galaxy Tab Over the iPad

The battle between ipad and Samsung galaxy for best tablet PC has been a long debate now. Many deem that the Samsung Galaxy Tab is the perfect ipad alternative. Here are the major reasons why get a Samsung Galaxy instead of ipad.

• Functionalities
The lack of camera of ipad is one of its major drawbacks. Imagine how useless it is as a mobile device because of its lack of camera. You can’t make videoconference or just even take some photos while you are on the go. There are rumors though that apple will be installing a camera on their next version of ipad. Apple probably realized their lapse on not fitting a camera on their flagship tablet PC. Other ipad alternatives in the market come with cameras making ipad an inferior pc tablet.

Another advantage of the Samsung Galaxy Tab is its versatility of turning into a mobile phone. It can be converted easily into a mobile phone, capable of SMS and voice calls, just by putting SIM Card. Meanwhile, the ipad also has a sim card slot, but only f…
