Facebook adds stickers to chat on desktop

Facebook adds stickers to chat on desktop

For quite sometime, Facebook has stickers on the Messenger app on iOS and Android. So while the mobile users spamming away stickers in their chats (like me, no less), the desktop users watched in envy as the stickers are posted up on their chats. Facebook just enabled the stickers functionality (for me and a few batches of users, at least) on the desktop version. If you have yet to see an update, force a refresh (F5 or Ctrl+R or Cmd+R) manually…

Of: PostPost.com

Of: PostPost.com

Those who are in my friend list on Facebook know that I am an avid sharer, sharing YouTube videos, interesting news, constant status updates, all just to distract them. Just kidding. Anyway, there is a new application in town! Not exactly an application, rather, a website: PostPost.com. This is the browser version of Flipboard. In their words: PostPost is a news aggregator for the social generation, and collates the articles, videos, and photos your friends have found interesting enough to…

Facebook mining

Facebook mining

Apparently, there are scammers/data miners who are exploiting features, or lack of it, on Facebook. For many years, as far back as when Facebook first started, countless of users have been asking or requesting for a similar feature to Friendster’s “Who viewed my profile”. Steadfastly, Facebook held their ground and refuse to allow such a feature to be implemented. Malicious programmers are now increasingly exploiting this stance to mine user data (so I have assumed) from unwitting Facebook users, who…

[Alert!] Fake Nikon Giveaway on Facebook

[Alert!] Fake Nikon Giveaway on Facebook

The following is just a rehash of what I have posted on my Facebook wall. It simply highlights the danger of liking random pages. Consider this a public service announcement. There is a “Nikon camera giveaway” (note the quotation marks) on Facebook (http://guyinawindchair.com/nikon/). It is a scam. Do not like not it. If you have, block the application and check if you have this page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/HM-Faysal/167240566625082) in your “like” list. Also remember to block the application as it has access…

Be more aware about the technology you are using!

Be more aware about the technology you are using!

Otherwise you are just embarrassing yourself. theonlinecitizen has just posted, on Facebook, a Google News link on Youth Olympics Game and saying this: virtually all of [the news reported are] from our local news outlets. The world doesn’t seem interested at all. But we’re spending almost S$400 million on it. For propensity sake, a screenshot of the link: On the first glance, this statement seems valid. I decided to click on that link and it does direct me to Google…

Project Reach Causathon

Project Reach Causathon

Once again, Daphne of XPR has invited me to partake in another event. This time, it is one of a social cause, or rather, social causes. Causathon is a portmanteau of ’cause’ and ‘marathon’ to signify that the race for cause is one long journey. Our destination is World Peace. There are 85 SMa students in 14 different teams taking part in this race. Each team champion different causes such as from helping transient workers to helping the folks who…

Celebrating Values Day 2010

It is here again. Honestly, this is the only event that gets me excited as an alumnus of YJC. 😀 Tickets are priced at $10/-. They can be bought at the event itself or from any existing YJCians, students and teachers alike. If you see any YJCians on the street, stop them and ask for a ticket or two. 😆 The event will be held on the 27th Feb 2010, 9am – 5pm. It is a Saturday, exactly a month…

Flash Mob at Orchard

There will be a flash mob later at Orchard. I just received news of it on Facebook. It is perfect for those who wants to have pillow fights. Remember to bring pillows for it. Please refer to the Facebook event page for more information. P.S. I am falling sick. It is probable that I will not be there.

I am a Singaporean blogger who acts indepedent of Singapore Government control

The debate between Fusion Garage and Tech Crunch over Crunchpad and Joo Joo has heated up to another level. Micheal Arrington has made a sweeping statement: Singapore indeed does not have a free go on what can be published on the press. What is deemed as unsavory to the local population at large is censored out or left out entirely. Minor foreign news are left on the editor’s desks for days at a stretch before being published out. But it is utterly…

[Facebook Video] ORD Song to Taylor Swift’s Love Story

[Facebook Video] ORD Song to Taylor Swift’s Love Story

It is here! Not really. I still have 10 more days to ORD. Back to the topic, there is this guy who uploaded a video on Facebook singing about his joy of ORD-ing and getting his pink IC back. His singing is off, but it is just amusing. Enjoy. Oh, by the way, if the video is down, do tell me in the comments. There is no point having the post without the video. Link to the original page.
