Facebook® plans to resume address and phone sharing

The fact that Internet can change the lifestyle of the human beings is an undeniable fact and so is the gift that Internet is known to bestow upon the human race. Nowadays Internet has changed the way of the life of human beings who use the true potential of this technology. One of the major uses of Internet is to make the world a smaller place to live. Hence the emergence of several social networking websites has taken place on a recent basis and one of the most favorites among them is Facebook.

After several critical views that were fired at Facebook for launching the new application which would share the user information with the application and then publish it on the wall of the user by taking the permission of the user, Facebook has recently launched another controversial idea of sharing the addresses and phone number of the user by taking the consent of the user.

In several cases, it was seen that before Facebook planned to do so or to take steps regarding the sharing of the personal information of the users on the Internet, many people raised a voice to stop deploying the idea in reality. Most of these people complained that by doing so what Facebook would do is that it would leave the private details of any user vulnerable to the outsiders who can take advantage of the information and can easily breach the security wall and take all the necessary steps possible to hack the profile of the user. If not hacking, then some people can also take the details, which are being published by Facebook in the open market and can manipulate the information, which might cause further trouble for the user whose information has been leaked in the market.

As a reply to this, Facebook had thrown a counter argument telling that they would make the world a better place to live after they enable the phone and the address sharing system on the social networking website. They said that the greatest advantage of using the system would be that most of the people who want to connect to important job sites or even want to get a bit more influentially connected to the outside world can easily do this.

According to the officials, they are taking the details and then publishing them by taking the consent of the user and in no situations would the user be in trouble. It is for this reason that the security to the details that Facebook is possibly known to provide is quite robust and no external entity can ever hack or break in through the security network.

Keep Kids Away from Social Networking Sites

Yes, this is what a principal of Benjamin Franklin Middle School in Ridgewood, N.J, Mr. Anthony Orsini said to the questions asked to him on an interview with a news channel. He very frankly opposed the use of any famous social networking portals like Facebook, MySpace, etc. He asked parents to check on their children and requested them to please avoid their children getting registered on social networking Websites.

He went to the extent of e-mailing all the parents in which he wrote that social networking sites are unjustifiably wicked. He requested parents to sit with their children and talk things out and explain them that they are not allowed to use social networking sites. He said that it is for their benefit itself. He went to the extent that he didn’t spare even online games. He said kids can play online games but without interactive devices. If they want to play online games with people present at different places geographically, they can very well play but there is no need to talk to them, thus he asked parents to take away the interactive gadgets like speakers and microphone, etc. He also advised parents to install parental control software applications in their kids’ computers and check them once a week.

Now, it might sound harsh and shocking to a few people who don’t share similar views with the principal,  but for people who think similar to the principal might presume that  it is perfectly all right to implement all what he said. There have been several such discussions in the past on this  topic which couldn’t lead to a common consensus and the question still persists today that whether kids using social networking sites is appropriate or not and both the sides have thousands of arguments and answers to this statement.

There are people who simply disagree with the idea of isolating children from Websites like Facebook, MySpace, etc and find the statement ridiculous. They state that there is nothing wrong offered by these websites and there is no such content on them which only adults can access and not kids. As a matter of the fact they believe that children will learn a lot from them and it will help them grow as a human being who can handle his relations. They feel it is sheer discrimination against children to stop them from using these sites. In fact they feel if you stop them from using it, they will in turn be tempted to do so and will lead them to using those websites in secretive or in some other indecent manner.

Well maybe that’s true, you shouldn’t scold children to stop using Facebook or MySpace or other social networking site but you can explain them the dangers of displaying personal information online and they can be taught the mannerisms and the maturity required while enjoying these sites, in a friendly manner. These sites themselves don’t allow kids below 18 years of age to  register, so it is obvious that they might have reasons of their own for not allowing younger ones to access it. It does require a sense of awareness, a sense of adulthood to take care of your details and movements of people around your profile, which certainly children lack.

So, ultimately it is up to the parents themselves as they are the best people who knows how mature and grown up their kid is, to allow their kids to build social network or teach them to build real world relations first and then virtual ones.

How nice it would be to view the same content which we see on our computer screens to be watched on our own big screens? Perhaps, the idea behind inventing the high definition televisions, DVD’s and DVR’s is also the same and that’s why they have become a huge success even though they come with huge prices. This is true especially for those movie and sports lovers who want to download movies or television shows from the Internet, who wants to play online games on big screens and who love to watch live telecast of their favorite sports that sometimes gets broadcasted only on the Internet.

Google, the powerful media of Internet is about to enter into another innovative and challenging platform which is surely going to hit the business of cable channels as it brings many users to use its system. In fact, people are waiting for this since long time. Google TV is on its way to make you surf your favorite things right on your television sets. This search gaint, along with other pioneers, Sony, Intel and Logitech is developing a new system called Google TV which is a prototype set top box that connects Internet to your television. In the recent past, other famous companies such as Apple have also tried to develop such technology and systems to enhance the features of the television sets in order to do things such as download favorite movies and other telecasts. However, nothing has made their entries as quickly and efficiently as Google did.

The new system is getting developed on the Android operating system, which is the open source operating system of most of the Google owned mobile phones. Intel’s processor and Atom chips are incorporated within the system. Logitech is also involved to build a remote control and keyword for the users to operate the services very easily and efficiently. The Google TV project is under the development from quite some time and is now under testing phase. It has collaborated with the Dish Network satellite provider to test the set top box technology. Google has also planned to build the same technology on other devices such as Blu-ray players.

With this invention, the scope and use of televisions is not limited just to watch the movies, television shows, other public events and sports. The whole world can be seen and one can also stay connected to their social networking sites such as twitter, facebook, youtube while also enjoying by playing many online games on the big screen.
