What Facebook is missing?

I am not a Facebook(er); being computer geek, blogger and academic writer i hardly got time to spend to much time on Facebook, and when I look back to My Facebook, it means either I am bored or i am searching some jokes to laugh and relax.
Other times i come to Facebook is when i found something interesting, i do like the same on FB as follow up. There are many who update there blogs and websites regularly, my Favorite on FB is Leo, he is an authority in computers and programming and sometimes i get very good post from Leo. So my FB profile is alive mainly because of Leo, hope Mark Zuckerberg will read this post he will buy a Latte to Leo :D

As my FB like are growing, certainly in four fields, academics, programming, blogging, and tech tips, another is news. At this point I strongly wish FB should have added another custom UI along side like button, so i may have liked it below a certain category. This may have made reading easy. Also there needed customized wall post interface so post of similar category should display under one hood. For now all posts from your likes appear in just one single page on your wall and this makes reading difficult.

As i always browse news from our Fire Fox or Chrome, so off course when i log in to FB most of the time it does not make much sense to see the same news post again. However, it comes handy, the day when i check FB first. If there was a facility to like news feed under a given category, i would not require giving attention to already read news pieces. But it is that way so it is that way. However, personally i feel, if facebook will add a customization to like under which category, certainly it improve user experience.

Another small issue i came across is facebook search; as soon when i put Indian in FB search box, it suggested Indian ***********, some mature content; however, i was intended to search Indian Statistical Institute, New Delhi. I am not a kid, i don't know if someone below 18/13 get same suggestions of FB search box, but whether one is teen or above teen, such suggestions distract one from actual task. In this area i feel facebook needs improvements.

Personally, i have nothing against facebook or any mature page, book or anything, the way i use facebook and the experience i get sharing here through this post for my readers. I feel FB need some re innovations, seriously in terms of programming and designing. What you feel?

Learn to read

Do not read to learn. Kids go school for reading and comeback exhausted. In many higher education institutions Ph.D candidates read and compile thesis based on how much they have learnt based from reading over say 3 or 5 years or may be more sometime with grant or without grant. Often I have seen one trend the people who impress you own many books, think any name that come to your mind and check what the person read. You will find a coal business person may have books on literature. A mathematics professor may have books of archeology. Talk to them. Often you will find the person attached with a certain profession can only speak or debate around that area only. Or discuss something random and you will be taken that certain area of work or passion. Consider sports. Cricket.

No matter how many money making classes yo

Why documentation is important for bloggers

More often I received requests to improve website SEO or build a new website or improve an existing one. One common problem with lot of those website owners and bloggers is they do not have any documents about their expectations. They say do it best, do it as you like, I mean business. Or maximum they present some similar site. Imagine a legal professional showing you a similar site and its about a hotel or resort. That is not the story of most novice only. Even people in IoT business since over a decade and software professionals act numb. This simply put off me. Whenever you start a blog or website, ask yourself Why I am creating this website? Who are my prospects? What I expect from this website? How this website well fulfill my expectation? How I want this site to look like? How I will promote this website? How often I will need upgrade? How much budget and time I can allocate for this? Write down answers to above questions and any additional one that you have? To help you design p
