Entrepreneur With A Start Up Business Plan – Head To Rock The Post

Social networking often brings to mind Facebook, Google +, or some other similar website where you connect with friends and family. Not many people think about connecting with people who need time, money, and the support of other helpful individuals to accomplish great tasks, but a new business social networking site called Rock The Post is about to change this.

Rock The Post takes volunteering, donating and investing to the next level and integrates it with social networking and blogging. Instead of people asking for donations and volunteers at stores and street corners, they are now able to share their story to thousands and thousands of people via a post on Rock The Post. The people at Rock The Post can then choose to donate their time (or money) to the person’s cause and become a part of something greater.

There are many successful stories on Rock The Post and a multitude of posts that were recognized, donated to, and closed due to the completion of the projects. Some posts are heartbreaking and pull at every fiber of humanity for people to assist, others are innovative and inspire people to donate / invest as they realize it will be great, and many posts are a combination of the two. One man on Rock The Post simply needed a life coach or a consoler to talk with him and help him figure out some things in his life, another post was a request for money to help get a brewing company started, and yet another was on a woman with M.S who needed some funds for a blog to support her family.

To join Rock The Post you simply have to complete a short registration and you are accepted – no fees or other miscellaneous questionnaires. Once you are registered you can then create your own post, speak about your business plan and request help, or you can browse through the multitude of others and assist a person in need.

The truly magical thing about Rock The Post is that there is no set donation amount. Even if you just donate a dollar to help these individuals, it lets them know that there are others out there who believe in them and who want them to succeed. Additionally your time is far more valuable and you can be part of something great by volunteering an hour or two to another individual.

At Rock The Post every minute volunteered, every penny donated, means the world to someone and can change their lives forever. To find out more about Rock The Post, view some of the posts on their site, or register, go to their website here: Rock The Post .

Facebook’s In Trouble For Selling Your Personal Secrets!

Many Facebook users don’t think before sending messages to their friends that the contents of those messages could be read by anyone else. The incredible amount of trust put into Facebook has been betrayed and users are appalled to find out that their messages, activity, and all of their personal information has been released to advertising companies so that the advertising companies could display targeted ads to the users.

So does this happen to everyone? Don’t personal privacy settings have any bearing on this? Unfortunately it does happen to everyone no matter how strict your privacy settings are. Your sexuality, religious beliefs, and even political preferences are all given to advertisers. But that’s not all..

The Facebook information gathered and passed to advertising companies is much more extensive and intrustive than many believe. Not only does it track and store information on the user themselves, but also on their friends, their educational backgrounds, their status updates, and much more. Even chats that people have together are stored by Facebook, despite the users deleting them. For example a high school student getting ready to go to college may end up getting targeted ads for dorm room furniture, various college ads, and more.

This negligent violation of privacy has outraged many because of the fact that Facebook doesn’t notify its users that it will be utilizing their personal information in such a way. While many understand that advertising is a big profit and money is what makes the world go round, people simply want to be notified prior to their information being utilized.

The ?European Commission is planning on banning this advertising in a new directive that will be out in January. Unfortunately this move will threaten Facebook’s plans for next year’s stock exchange because it severely compromises one of the main ways they make money.

The European Commission is taking this violation of privacy very seriously and is meeting next week with the UK Information Commissioner to discuss their next moves.

So where did all of this information stem from? Who exactly noticed the vast amount of information retained by Facebook? The answer is an Australian student named Max Schrems. Max sent a request into Facebook asking what information was held on him and what he got back was astonishing…and incomplete. Max was sent a CD which contained 1,222 pages of information on him and after reviewing it he complained to the data watchdogs because it was clear that Facebook had even more information on him which they did not disclose.

How many pages of information does Facebook have on you? Perhaps you should call and find out!

Facebook’s Photo Album Gets A Face Lift – Brings In The Theater Effect

Guess it’s time now that FaceBook starts pulling out some features from Orkut.

If you’ve used Orkut, then you definitely know how the albums work there. They look more or less like slide shows.  And now Facebook has come up with a similar feature.

By the way, how many of you remember the famous LightBox JS feature by Lokesh Dhakar, which was followed by LightBox 2, an upgraded version of LightBox JS? Those who have no idea what LightBox feature is please click on those links and experience it by yourself.

After going through Orkut’s album feature and the lightbox feature, don’t you guys think Facebook’s latest album feature is nothing but the result of cross the two: Orkut’s album and LightBox 2 ?

Personally, I do not like the way the whole thing is presented. It looks shabby to me. May be it’s just me, who is not ready to accept changes, and again may be I might start liking it in future. I’m curious to know what you guys think !!

All you need to do is connect Bing to your Facebook account, after which you will notice a new ‘Liked By Your Friends’ portion within your search results.

It is definitely more exciting to see what friends share and enjoy given the fact that the news is not already up on search results.
