    Fast Facebook Brings Slimmed Down ExperienceWhat do many users often request from the Facebook mobile app development team? A faster, less bloated experience for starters. And a way to theme it would be nice as well. Whether it is small bug fixes or big feature omissions, there are a lot of users who are frustrated and dissatisfied with the official Facebook application. Now, those users have a second option.

    XDA Forum Member taomorpheus has created a Facebook application dubbed Fast Facebook, which looks to fill in the gaps where the old Facebook left off. It promises a much faster and smoother Facebook experience, without sacrificing any of the features. It even includes a few features that the standard Facebook application lacks.

    Fast Facebook can be themed. Unlike other themed versions of the Facebook application, there are theme packs for Fast Facebook that allow users to change the look themselves and upload their own backgrounds from their photo gallery. Think desktop wallpaper, but for Facebook. The application also features pretty much everything you’d need in a Facebook app, including the chat function, usual notifications, posting on walls, and so on. The application’s big claims to fame, however, is how it is designed to be streamlined and run more quickly and is based on Android 4.0 design language. It is a beta, though, so expect there to be a few bugs when roving around. taomorpheus is working hard to iron them out but a beta is a beta.

    More information, screen shots, download links, change logs, and feature lists are available in the google play. Go get your Facebook on in a different way.

    The Top 10 Facts About Successful Networking

    Networking doesn’t have to be as hard as we think it might be. These highly practical ideas will help you be a better networker than ever, whether you are promoting your business, looking for a job, or simply seeking information on any topic at all.

    1. Networking is not just about getting a job, or selling a product or service.

    Its main purpose is to give or get useful information. As such, it is one of the best research tools we have available to us.

    2. It doesn’t have to be slimy.

    We’ve all been bombarded by high-pressure salespeople trying to sell us things we don’t want or need. Even if we do want or need some of those things, we refuse to buy because of the offensive sales tactics. In today’s successful networking model, we look for ways to help other people, and we don’t ignore people who may not be in our target market.

    3. Networking gets harder when we feel more desperate.

    Others can sense when your sole purpose is to make a sale or find a job. If you change your objective to taking a single step closer to your goal, the stakes won’t seem as high and you will feel more relaxed, less desperate.

    4. Never put anyone you are networking with on the spot – take the pressure off everyone.

    The easiest way to do this is to ask general questions rather than direct questions. Ask about “business owners like you,” “companies like yours,” “in your industry,” instead of seeking information specific to them.

    5. Replace, “Do you know anyone who…?” with, “Whom do you know that…?”

    When you ask a question that has a yes or no answer, it’s easier for your audience to say no and then stop thinking, and yet we all have a desire to help people. Asking, “Whom do you know at XYZ Company who could answer my questions about ___________?” will encourage problem solving rather than an easy “No,” even if you don’t use the word “whom!”

    6. Networking is happening all the time, even when you don’t think it is.

    We’ve all heard that you never have a second chance to make a first impression. This is not to say we shouldn’t be ourselves, but to remind us that everything a person sees in us speaks as loudly as our words. The second part of this is that everyone you know could be in a position to help you reach your goals, even if you don’t know how they can.

    7. Your results will improve if you decide in advance exactly what you want to gain from an event.

    Find who will be there. Do you want to meet three new people? Learn more about volunteer opportunities in an organization or region? Find a better mechanic? Look for volunteers for an organization near and dear to you? All are possible if you keep in mind why you’re there. With that said, be sure to remain open to the unexpected and give yourself permission to take another path when it presents itself!

    8. Networking works best when we build relationships.

    It shouldn’t be used just to look for sales opportunities or try to promote ourselves. If we are so focused on “the next sale” (putting dinner on the table), we come across as tense, and may fail to build relationships for the long term. We may even overlook a person whose own network could generate huge benefits to us over time.

    9. What you get back doesn’t necessarily come back from the same people you’ve helped in the past.

    Those you help will spend time saying good things about you. As word gets around, other people will seek you out. As your good reputation grows, other people will help you, and you will reach your goals, helped sometimes only indirectly by those you’ve helped in the past. Even though this is very true these days, some of your contacts may still expect something in return for their help. Be sure you know this before you disappear into the sunset!

    10. Quality is so much better than quantity!

    Meeting 2-3 people at an event and learning more about their needs and challenges is far more valuable than collecting (or giving away) 20 business cards. Understanding a person and his or her business will give you good insight as to what you can do for them when an opportunity arises – be it information, a link to another person, or an offer of working for them as an employee.

    Browse Facebook at Work Without Getting Compromised. 

    Web site HardlyWork.in lets you check your Facebook Newsfeed at work without the worry of prying eyes with a clever interface that poses as an Excel spreadsheet.

    Now you can get away with cruising around Facebook at work, even when your boss is peering over your shoulder. Well, as long as the boss doesn’t look too closely.

    Even the laziest slacker can look busy in a jiffy with this interactive adaptation of many of Facebook’s functions. Simply go to HardlyWork.in, click “Gimme Dem Spreadsheets,” enter your Facebook credentials, and there’s your Facebook newsfeed, all done up to look exactly like an Excel spreadsheet.

    It’s not just a static graphic, either — HardlyWork.in lets you search for Facebook friends by entering names into the formula bar, load more items, check your newsfeed, wall, or tag photos, hover to see who liked a post, and there’s even a boss switch (the spacebar) that immediately changes everything into a vast sea of spreadsheet numbers all nestled within their legitimate-looking cells.

    Just go to the site and give it access to your Facebook account, it populates a pedestrian-looking spreadsheet with your Facebook newsfeed. No eye-catching logos, sound effects, or chat windows will mar your appearance of diligent productivity. You will be able to browse your photo albums, so be careful as pictures can be eye-catching to that work busybody that always seems to be walking by your cubicle.

    You can hover your mouse over comments and Likes, which give you more information and thumbnail previews when you do. You can even activate a “Bosskey” (the space bar) that acts as an emergency kill switch and will kick you immediately into a more real-looking spreadsheet should you need to look like you’re doing legitimate work in a hurry.

    These sort of tools are always a little silly—for example, the HardlyWork.in window uses a Windows XP style, so hopefully that’s what you’re using at work. Unproductive work maybe more sinister than goofing off, maybe its not all that bad.

    “Avoid False Warnings on Facebook” 

    ATTENTION !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!do not join the group that runs currently on facebook with the title `becoming a father or mother was the greatest gift of my life` This isa group created by pedophiles whose aim is to access yourphotos!!!!!!!!!!!! Please rotate this post to all Your Friends on Facebook.
    ATTENTION!!! Fox 5 news reported: DO NOT join the group currently on facebook with the title `Becoming a father or mother was the greatest gift of mylife`. This is a group created by pedophiles whose aim is to access your photos. Please copy

    This long running hoax has been circulating in one form or another since the very beginning of 2010, and is one of the first hoaxes that used the controversial bait of using Facebook paedophiles to entice Facebook users into propagating it throughout the social networking site.

    Of course, the message is completely bogus, and there is absolutely no evidence or reason to support the unfounded assertion that groups with the name described in the messages above is run (or has anything to do with) by paedophiles. The message is flawed in several ways, such as if it was indeed run by paedophiles then it would be removed by Facebook and joining a group doesn’t make it easier for the admins of that group to access a Facebook users photos. Additionally how would somebody know the group was run by paedophiles and if they did why would they not report it to the authorities and get the group shut down? The later evolution of the hoax that purported that Fox News has reported on this is also completely untrue.

    Also worth noting is that there was not even a group with that name at the time the rumour first began to circulate, yet many groups with similar or identical names were created after the rumour became prolific. Also many counter groups were created warning of the rumour, but since the rumour is a complete hoax, the counter groups were essentially rime wasting exercises in themselves.

    I also searched Fox News Live and they reported no such thing. The rumour is not based on any truth and should not be circulated.

    Different Facebook rumours circulate throughout the site everyday, fooling millions of online users. If you want to learn more about these rumours and how to spot them, you can read our full article on Facebook rumours byclicking here.
