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?

5 points to consider when starting Solopreneurship

A solopreneur is not an entrepreneur. Sorry being honest. A Solopreneur is entrepreneur in the making. So when starting a business SOLO you need to know many things. How many things and what exactly cannot be said in a page. Answers varies in accordance with circumstances. However, here are 5 things everyone should know when starting a business alone.

1. Market
Whatever you are supposed to do or sell, study its market size. Meet people, interact, know, since how long they are in this business. What they think, how will be market for the said business, product or service. If it will rise, go steady or fall.
2. Mentor
YOU WILL FAIL. Not only one, two or three times but many times. Do you know someone who will help you in downtime or when going for expansion. Ideally, mentors do not work for you, hiring a mentor is not cheap, also they are less available human commodity. Start searching right away till you find one.
3.Time
Doing business is 10 times more tiring than doing a…

Whether YouTube Messenger will stand test of the times

Instant messaging, free calling and video chats made the internet popular. People love to talk. Hotmail, Yahoo, AOL turned out internet media mougal. Whatsapp gone viral it generated sales for smartphone companies.
Google Chat and Hangout did not tasted success indeed it became just another product.
In the coming days more video content will be created, both private and public. Looks like Google now wants from people to spend much time on YouTube. And this is why they have added chat features. It's very basic for now. But personally I feel if more people will start using it, company will add more fun features so you don't need go outside YouTube.
However, technology is still an hindrance. For majority of smartphone users multitasking is not seemless due to slow internet speed and average phone memory and processor speed.
Cell phone prices are going down but purchasing of many people is not moving very fast.
In such a circumstances it's not pretty easy to say if YouTube mes…
