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?

10 rules of good parenting

The term parenting sends a shiver down the spine  especially if you live in a nuclear family and going to become a parent; father, mother or guardian. Parenting is not only about raising kids, feeding and sending to school. Indeed parenting is about overall development of a child. Personally I believe, if you do not have kids to raise then too being a grown up adult you are  parenting neighborhood kids in one way or the other.  Kids learn better from surroundings.  Your persona is a reflection of your parents and you are going to transfer that persona to your own kids and the kids near you.

Excellence vs Perfection

There is huge confusion between excellence and perfection. Both are rewarding but...
Perfection has limitations, you can not make anything perfect above 100 marks. This is where either you beat the competition or get beaten. Normally both happens. Excellence is about achieving 100%. You can achieve 100 marks in a given task at that point you may argue that here I achieved full percentage. But analogy says, you have achieved it about the task and not around the task. When you strive to achieve around the task there is no upper limit. For example an student may get 100 out of 100 marks in a given examination does that mean he / she 100 perfect in all those topics around what questions were asked or as that employ that there is no one out there in the world who knows better than the student who have faced an examination. This is why governments take Essay test before selecting you for a given post.
In companies awards are given to best employees do you know why? So other employees try b…

Do not believe on everything in press

Sorry press guys to disappoint you.
I was fooled by couple by magazines in year 1999 / 2000 that Bangalore has better job market.  Guided by TRP fools I explored jobs and found pathetic work conditions.  It was not IT hub then.
I was heavily disappointed with job market but Bangalore weather truly won my heart
Tonight I came across a bullshit article on a reputed website about weight gain and author of the article written it mindlessly,.  Completely Spun content and its one of the well known website.
Dear readers,  though Google is penalizing continuous bad websites but it's your responsibility to not believe on everything on Internet but chose wisely. 
Articles like health should not be followed blindly but expert advice must be taken. 
You cannot count on Internet for issues like health care and if you are relying on it must check for the creditibility.
