Who's Viewed My Profile scam on facebook

I was stupid enough to click a link of who's viewed my profile on facebook and now this thing has posted a link and sort of rubbish survey to some of my friend’s profile. This is what happened: I clicked on a survey with percentage of who has vied my profile from my friend’s profile and it first made me wait, and then a sort of advert came up, so I ended it by making an exit out of the website. Then a weird thing happened, 6 or 7 of my friends on facebook sent an instant chat message with same link and exactly the same message, so I logged out of facebook. After a few seconds, I log back in and chatted with one of the 6 friends who have sent that message and link, she replied and said she did not send any message. Later that morning, I check facebook and found out that I had created an event of who’s viewed my profile and invited everyone on my friends list to join in; I was very surprised as I did not make such event on facebook! I also found out that I posted some sort of survey to 10 of my friends’ profile, which I also did not! Anyway, I managed to delete all the post made by that thing to my friends profile and also have managed to delete that event post. Now, I just hope that thing has not left a tracker or virus in my computer.

Attached here is a copy of facebooks rule on privacy, and as you can see they do not allow such thing!

Help Center

Privacy: Who can see my profile and content?

Can I know who’s viewing my profile or how often it’s being viewed?

No, Facebook does not provide the ability to track who is viewing your profile, or parts of your profile, such as your photos. Applications by outside developers cannot provide this functionality, either. Applications that claim to give you this ability will be removed from Facebook for violating policy. You can report applications that provide untrustworthy experiences by clicking the "Report Application" at the bottom of the application’s About page, or by clicking "Report" at the bottom of any canvas page within the application.

LAPTOP CUSHION PORTABLE TABLE

I got this a month ago on ebay for £7.94 brand new with postage. It is a portable laptop cushion tray/table with led light, pen slot and a cup holder which I think is a good product considering that the price is very cheap for what you can use it for. This is actually a portable laptop table, but it can be your multi-purpose desk around the house and could also bring this on the move. Multi-purpose, as not only that I use it for my laptop for blogging but I also use it when I am reading a book and as well as putting food on it and making it a food tray. Now the only downside of this is that the cushion part which is made of beaded poly styro is not thick enough to give you the comfort of typing on your lap, so what you could do is put another pillow underneath and that would give you the exact height for typing on the lap. Anyway, it does give my laptop a good air flow and the cup holder is very handy to put in the laptop mouse when not in use. So in my opinion, it is a good buy!

Future investment with Gold IRA

If you are looking forward of investing towards your future, then I think it is worth looking at this investment called gold IRA. This is type of investment is quite famous on retirement plans, now I know some people think that retirement age is still a long way, but we are all going there anyway, so I think it is always best to plan and look ahead of time. Now, the interesting part of this is that when you invest towards gold you get a much higher returns compare to some other forms of stocks. So even if the economy drops, you will still hold a good deal of you gold investment and that would ensure your safe and secure future. That is why I am also looking forward on getting one myself!

I could not explain this to you further, but if you really are interested about IRA gold and gold 401k investments and deposits, then I suggest that you check out this website called goldcoinsgain.com as they got all the information you require about gold IRA’s, 401k gold as well as information on gold IRA transfer. I also heard that they got an excellent customer service and it might also help to let you know that this company does not force, rush or mislead people in investing towards gold or gold IRA's. So feel free to visit their website or call their customer service on a toll free number 800-940-7793.

5 days of good weather with sunny spells

From April 6 to April 10, 2011 the maximum temperature here in the north of England is 15c to 17c, a fine and dry day with a good deal of sunshine and feeling quite warm in light winds, perfect for flying kites and going out on a picnic with the family.

As of today the 7th of April 2011, at around 7:00 in the morning, clouds seems to appear a little think and dark, but this as forecasted on the news weather report should not last long, as any clouds in this region should clear during the morning to leave a fine and dry day with sunny spells. So, it should feel quite pleasant in the sunshine!

Address Plaques Specialist

If you are looking of where to get a plague for your address, then you might want to check out this website I saw online which specialize in making plagues such as residential address plagues, commercial address plagues, address numbers, address post, mail boxes and many more.

I actually want to post this on my blog as I always want to help people find a great deal when it comes to buying and this is one of the websites that sells quality products at an affordable price. In fact they are the lowest priced plague seller online! Now the thing about this manufacturer is that aside from giving clients such an amazingly low priced plague, clients also have more freedom of choices when it comes to designs, as they also offer personalized address plagues and custom address plagues.

The materials of the products, based on what I saw on the website are usually made of aluminum's and acrylics but there could be something else too, so feel free to visit their website or best to phone them and talk to their customer service representative, it’s the best way of getting more information about these plagues.

Changing BT broadband channel

Just yesterday I had a problem with BT broadband wireless connection as I can’t get online using my laptop. The thing is that my pc which is wired to the hub is working perfectly but the wireless connection does not work at all. So I phoned the BT customer service and inquired about this problem and they have given me some instructions of how to change the wireless channel. It only took less than 2 minutes to change the channel and I got the wireless internet signal back. Anyway, here is how to change the wireless channel of the BT Home Hub 2.0:

• Step 1
Open your Hub Manager
If you've logged into your Hub Manager before, please go straight to step 2.
If this is the first time you've logged into your Hub Manager you'll see the following screen. You'll be asked to enter your serial number. Enter your Hub's Admin password, which is written on the sticker on the back of your Hub. You'll then be asked to create and enter your own new password.

• Step 2
You'll now be asked to enter your Hub Admin password. Then click OK.

• Step 3
The following screen will appear. Under the Wireless Channel section, select a new channel number from the Channel selection drop down menu under Wireless Channel. Try channels 1 and 11 first.

• Step 4
Click Apply and wait 60 seconds for your computers to automatically discover the new settings. That's it, you've now changed your Hub's wireless channel.
