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?

Why revise your website copy in New Year

The new year looks ideal time to start anything new especially renovations. You don't remember date for next renovation. Modifications are important in everything. Your website is not any different.

Cost of Smartphone Notifications

Data is cheap now, in fact raw cheap if I compare it from ten years down the line. For the price of a meal or less you get Internet data for almost full month. ISPs has there own ways of making holes in every pocket. No one is spared. Data has become basic need of the times and ISPs making good profits. But question is how much data? Are we not overusing it. Shall there become a time when data will be in danger of becoming extinct and we will need to make campaigns same ways as we do it today for air, water or electricity? Time will give the answer.

Stories are served day and night and we are using data mindlessly without thinking how much we are paying for it. Android Smartphones has added opium to data consumption and Push Notifications given that extra mileage. Many smartphone users subscribe to notifications unknowingly. Once smartphone is hand you get many things which you want or don’t want. There is an impression that I am paying for data only, that too very small sum, smartp…
