HOW TO: NOT Seenzoned in Facebook

11 May 2014 / No Comments
Probably one of the key features in Facebook is Seen. When someone sends private message or chat you and you read it, it eventually displays seen(with check icon and timestamp) to the one sent message/chat. This is a quite powerful indication that the other end is indeed reading your chat or message whenever you have seen "SEEN".

However, it can be hurt sometimes. Like, you create a message for that someone with effort but it turns out that he/she just reads it and does not even reply to your messages. Painful right? Most especially, when that someone matters you most.

So how not to hurt and avoid being seenzoned?

Valentine's Day Is Fast Approaching. But You Need To Know this Useless App

13 January 2014 / No Comments
Looking for a special someone this 2014? Want to know who is your lucky Valentine this coming 2014?

Find out but be aware of this circulating app.

I am not surprised that Valentine's day will be NEXT month but rather with this FLOODED Facebook Valentine app particularly, Who will be your Valentine's 2014? that has been circulated on Facebook groups.

One thing I could say, I am certainly not over-exaggerating things like this. However, as part of analysis, I concluded that it is a USELESS app and could expose sensitive information from the user to those who made the app.
