Google introduces Google +1 button

 

Here is another  great work of Google. This is going to help when someone searches for something on the web, They can see how many people have recommended the relevant web page and they might be of your friends or family. According to Google  the Smart thing is ,Google gives priority to web pages which have  +1 recommendations in the search result.

Google-+1-button

Actually, by clicking on +1 Google button we recommend to people on the ideal web pages relevent to their search. In my opinion, this is as similar as clicking on the ” like” button on Facebook. Nevertheless google +1 button means something greater than that.  When someone clicks on  this button, It implies me that  he/she says “Here is another recommendation  for +1 concept”

How to Use Google +1 button ?

The user should have a Gmail account to use this button.They can submit their recommendations, after signing  in to their Gmail account.

First time it’s asking “Confirm how you’ll appear”.

Web site owners can make use of  Google +1 button from Google Web Master Tools and for advertisers Google +1 button will appear automatically in  search ads result in future.

Be ware from this. This is a scam and spreading very fast. If you remember “Osama killing video” this scam is similar to it. Do not click on “Enable Dislike button”. After you complete its steps you will send this same scam post on each friend’s wall. That’s how it grows.

Defiantly scammers have information’s about people who are going through this. Therefore you don’t click on “Enable Dislike button”

Facebook is trying to attract more traffic.

Good traffic makes web site owners happy. I know that it’s not something new to you. If you have a good stream of traffic to your website, there are much more possibilities to earn money from it.Couple of months back, I heard that Facebook had massive traffic more than google did in United States. Do you think that Facebook will stop getting more traffic because they already have it hugely? No. Every website draws on more and more techniques to catch more traffic.

You can see Facebook is trying to attract more traffic by setting facebook as the homepage in browsers.

Sri Lankans are setting up a new email service

inbox.lk

This email service is called inbox. yourname@inbox.lk this is how email looks like if you get registered with this Sri Lankan email service. This email service does not offer you any Gigabyte capacity like Gmail. This email service offers you 30 Mb capacity only.

You can reserve your preferred inbox.lk email address right now. What I do not like is they do not activate your email address after your registration. They take sometimes to approve and activate your email address because of spammers I guess. Anyways it’s good job Sri Lankans.

Reserve your preferred name

Facebook team work very hard to develop the Facebook everyday. Especially they are very particular about users’ privacy and security. Few days ago they introduced Social Authentication instead of using usual CAPCHA’s. Now they have developed another great feature to protect your facebook account.

This shows you from where you have logged in to Facebook recently. This is actually a tracking system. You can always get a notification to your email or to your mobile (as a text message) whenever a computer or a mobile device is logged in to your Facebook account.

Facebook is going to say BYE for CAPTCHAs

Websites use CAPTCHAs to identity whether user is a human or a machine because hackers crashes websites and steal your information. Therefore CAPTCHAs are awesome solution for websites. But Facebook is going to give you an advanced and creative security solution instead of CAPTCHAs. Its called Social Authentication. This is still under experimentation. Facebook is going to test Social Authentication and collect user’s feedback soon.

What is Social Authentication ?

Someone can hack your password but they do not know who your friends are. Therefore Facebook is going to show you some friend’s pictures and ask you to name the person in those photos from 6 names.
