With the recent official announcement of Facebook Timeline profiles, a rumor is spreading rapidly over the social network that Facebook will no longer be a free services and users will have to pay a fee for using it. The rumor spreading on Facebook via facebook status updates that you have to update a status that Facebook is paid now, but if you update this status it will be free for you. That status is:
FACEBOOK JUST RELEASED THEIR PRICE GRID FOR MEMBERSHIP. $9.99 PER MONTH FOR GOLD MEMBER SERVICES, $6.99 PER MONTH FOR SILVER MEMBER SERVICES, $3.99 PER MONTH FOR BRONZE MEMBER SERVICES, FREE IF YOU COPY AND PASTE THIS MESSAGE BEFORE MIDNIGHT TONIGHT. WHEN YOU SIGN ON TOMORROW MORNING YOU WILL BE PROMPTED FOR PAYMENT INFO…IT IS OFFICIAL IT WAS EVEN ON THE NEWS. FACEBOOK WILL START CHARGING DUE TO THE NEW PROFILE CHANGES. IF YOU COPY THIS ON YOUR WALL YOUR ICON WILL TURN BLUE AND FACEBOOK WILL BE FREE FOR YOU. PLEASE PASS THIS MESSAGE ON IF NOT YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE DELETED IF YOU DO NOT PAYWell let us tell you that all of this is fake and Facebook is free and will remain free even after the launch of its newer version. So there nothing like a paid Facebook membership as there’s no official information regarding the same. Also it’s not possible to make Facebook paid, if they do so most of the users will stop using it as they don’t like it personally and they login just to check what their friends are up to. So be cool for the moment and enjoy Facebook for free without updating any useless status updates.

Since the last few months we have been seeing a lot of changes in Facebook and most have been occurring very rapidly,the latest one being yesterday (20th September) which brought a lot of changes to the the newsfeed and the chat at the sidebar which has been merged into one with live feeds but personally i feel that Facebook is acting more Twitter-ish.
I didn't like the new facebook design overhaul which went live yesterday so after much digging around i came up with a trick to get back the old interface , Steps after the jump.
Here's Howto Do It !
- Go to Account Settings.
- Change the language to "English (UK)".
- Logout and enjoy the old version.
I often watch movies on my computer. It runs on Windows 7 and my favourite movie player is VLC player. One very useful reason to do so, is the feature of downloading subtitles from the internet and synchronizing them with the movie I am watching.
I came across a nice Add-on for VLC Player, which allows the user to download subtitles of a movie while watching the film.
Using Subtitle Finder
- First make sure your VLC player is updated. The latest version can be found from here.
- Now visit Subtitles Finder, and download the (subtitles-mod.lua) file on your computer.
- If only code is shown, copy-paste it into a notepad and save the file as subtitles-mod.lua. Make sure File Type is selected as ‘All Files’, otherwise the file might end up being saved as a .txt file.
- This file has to be added into VLC Folder in Program Files on your computer. Below is the exact path where the file has to be added.
- Windows (all users): %ProgramFiles%\VideoLAN\VLC\lua\extensions\
- Windows (current user): %APPDATA%\VLC\lua\extensions\
- Now while you are watching a movie on DVD and do not find subtitles in English or any particular language then you can simply click on View >> Subtitles >> Download.
- We have the option of searching but most times the subtitles are found without any trouble. Click on “Load Selected Subtitle” as you can see in the image above.
- For older version of VLC player, you might have to look up the Subtitle Finder by clicking on View >> Extensions >> Subtitles.

Facebook privacy settings have undergone several changes since December 2009, the latest one being in August 2011. Since your Facebook profile is associated with your real name you may want to keep more information private. And while you can always make parts or all of your profile private again, once information has been released to the Internet (e.g. search engines), This post will guide you on how you can control your privacy settings as of the August 2011 update, which was designed to be more user-friendly.
#1 Change the privacy settings for any old posts.
Before August 2011, you could not change the visibility of any posts that had already been published. If you accidentally made it too public, all you could do was delete it. Now there are two ways to adjust the visibility of old posts.
*To change the settings for an individual old post, find it on your wall, and hover the cursor on the upper right hand corner until a menu icon pops up. Click on that and change the visibility the same way as you would for a new post.
*To change the settings for all of your old posts, click on "Account" from the upper right hand corner and choose "Privacy Settings". Look for "Limit the audience for past posts" and click on the "Manage Past Post Visibility" link next to it. A dialog will pop up reminding you that this will set the visibility of all of your old posts to friends only. A few things to keep in mind: This is good if all of your old posts are more public than "friends only", such as if they were shared with everyone or with friends of friends, but it may also make private old posts (such as those which you shared with only certain friends) visible to all of your Facebook friends. Also, if you change your mind later, you'll have to individually go back and change each post's privacy settings, which can be unrealistically time-consuming.
#2 Check the visibility of any post that you comment on.
* If you comment on someone's post and they have set it to be visible to friends of friends or public, that means your comment might show up in all your friends' feeds.Before August 2011, you had no idea how public a person's update was, but now you can check by hovering the cursor over a little symbol at the end of the date details for an update:
* If it says "Shared with: (Name)'s friends of friends" or if the symbol looks like the Earth, that means all of your friends will be able to see your reply to that post.
#3 Take control of your tags.
The August 2011 update gives you more options to decide who sees posts, photos and videos you've been tagged in. Click on "Account" from the upper right hand corner and choose "Privacy Settings". Look for "How Tags Work" and click on "Edit Settings" next to it.
- Consider turning on profile review. If profile review is on, you must approve tags before they will appear on your profile. Until you do so, the tag will appear as "pending." Remember that not approving the post doesn't mean that you're not tagged—it simply means that the tag will not appear in your profile. (To remove the tag, you must go to the post, picture, or video you've been tagged in and click on "remove tag" next to your name.)
- Profile visibility. This lets you choose who can see posts that you're tagged in. Select an option in the drop down menu, or create your own option by clicking "Custom." If you have friends who tag you in potentially incriminating circumstances, you may wish to restrict this to people on your friends list who you trust not to hold any of the pictures against you.
- Tag suggestions. When your friend uploads a photo that looks like you and this feature is enabled, Facebook will suggest that they tag you. The tag will only appear if your friend approves it. This facial recognition feature has been controversial and was declared illegal to be turned on by default in Germany.
- Friends can check you into places. Leaving this option enabled will allow your friends to tag you with them when they check in to places. You will always be notified when friends check you in with them, and you have the ability to remove the checkin from your profile. If you disable this feature, they will not be able to check you in to begin with.
- Tag Review. Turning on tag review will allow you to review any tags your friends add to your profile before the tags appear. This is for when people look at your photos and videos and want to tag themselves, or other people, in them
Click the "Info" tab of your profile, and then hit edit in the right corner. Alternatively, click "Edit My Profile" under your name on the home page.
* Beside each piece of information you will see a drop down menu. You can decide which groups of people will see which information by clicking the menu and selecting the desired option. For example, you can set your work place visible to the public, but only allow your friends to see where you went to college.
* Toggle between different sections of your profile by clicking the options on the left hand side of the page.
#5 Preview your profile as someone else.
Want to check that your privacy settings are keeping elder cousin or your boss from seeing stuff you don't want them to see? You can now see your profile through their eyes. Actually, you have been able to do this for a long time, but it was tucked away deep in the privacy settings. As of August 2011, you can view your profile by clicking "View As..." on the upper right hand side of your profile.
- *Type the name of the person you want to view your profile as. Hit enter. You will then be able to view your profile exactly as that person views it. Make notes of things you want to change. Check your photo albums, old posts, etc. Click "Back to Profile" when you're done.
Even if you’ve just bought a brand new computer complete with Windows 7, you may find you’re lacking some power. Most new computers are pretty quick these days, but they are usually set to some default settings that can be tweaked to give you more power for nothing. These tips aim to show you a few easy to change settings that will release some extra power and speed up your computer without having to install anything.
Click on your start menu and type the words “ease of use” into the search box, and then press return. You will find a section called Ease of Access Center. In this area scroll all the way down to the bottom and find a section called “Make it easier to focus on Tasks”. Click on this you’ll be taken a new screen. Go to the bottom of this screen and find the section called “Make it easier to manage windows”. Uncheck the box that prevents windows from being automatically arranged when moved to the edge. This will give you a small increase in performance.
Now go to your start menu again and type, “turn off features” into the search box. This will give you a search result called “Turn Windows features on or off”. Click on this and this will take you to an area that will enable or disable certain windows features. Disable anything you don’t need, such as games. It’s really up to you what you need and don’t need, so go down the list and decide what you use. If unsure, leave it enabled. Chances are you’ll find a few things to turn off, and that will free up resources in Windows.
Note: Disabling UAC is something that only experienced users should do, as it can impact the system’s security.
