Retrieving Facebook Images – Yours or Friends

Boredom is just the reverse side of fascination: both depend on being outside rather than inside a situation, and one leads to the other. – Arthur Schopenhauer

You find yourself looking at your photos, photos of friends and family. Then are those times you view the photos of those you are fond of. Only to strangely, almost in a creepy way right click and save them. You may do this with many photos and it is time consuming indeed.

And… If you are one of these individuals who place a big sentimental value on the images. I know of an application for Facebook that you have been waiting for. The app is named “Pick&Zip“. Pick&Zip is a totally free online tool that will allow you downloading pictures from Facebook in a single zip or pdf file. Not just your own, but those who you are friends with, even those of you or friends who have been tagged.

To use PicknZip you will have to log in or sign in using your Facebook Account. No registration required. It’s that simple.

Tonight I am starting something new with my social time online. In addition to praying for those I know and love, I am now praying for those I do not know. Total strangers, people who have no direct influence in my life, nor I in theirs.

I am going to make public prayers for those individuals followed by the following  hashtag of #youiprayfor

So please join me in this; it only takes a few seconds and perhaps all of our prayers will be answered one day. We never know until we truly try.


update 1:

Reflecting on this idea i started to think: why bother doing this at all…  i then answered myself… “because maybe, just maybe someone out there was praying for me”; wishing me the best and perhaps some of those prayers, those good wishes along with hard work on my end … got me to where i am today. At times i honestly neglect what I have at times, but when stop for a second to pray and wish good for others i am reminded of all i have and its an awakening.

Switch to Pink Facebook’ Survey Scam

And again my friends are being scammed and spamming me with crap on Facebook

This message appearing on Facebook claims that users can switch the colour of their profile from blue to pink by clicking a link (yeah, lame and why do people fall for this stuff)

The post looks like this:

The message is a survey scam designed to trick users into spamming their friends and providing personal information via various third-party surveys or offers. Users are told that they must complete a survey as a means of verification. However, no matter how many surveys users complete, they will never receive the promised pink profile.

The scammers who create these schemes will earn commissions via suspect affiliate marketing systems each and every time a victim completes an offer or participates in a survey. Victims may also be faced with large phone bills for unwanted mobile phone services and, because they have provided name and contact details, they may be inundated with unwanted promotional emails, phone calls and junk mail.

If one of these spam messages appears on your wall, just delete it. Do not follow any links in such messages.

Facebook Video Calling (Powered by Skype)

With a simple and straightforward method of using, Facebook video calling is simply awesome. To get up and going with using the video feature you first need to install a plugin (http://www.facebook.com/videocalling) and from that point on you have what is necessary to use this new feature.


Making a video call is easy.

Look at the list of your friends (in the lower right-hand corner of your Facebook page) who are currently available on Facebook chat. Double-click a name, and you’ll see there’s a new icon at the top of the chat screen — a small video camera. Click it to send an invitation for that person to participate in a video chat. They’ll receive a pop-up notification to a video chat, and if they don’t have the plugin installed, they’ll be prompted to install it.


The video and sound quality is exceptional; however I do have my problems with the video chat screen taking up your screen and the inability to resize it.  All in all, I like it.  Good Job Facebook Team

Facebook – Up, Up, Down, Down

It seems that Facebook is down once again. After a while of troubleshooting my computer, then my home network. Its official! It’s not my side where the problem exists.

Faced with this I took a walk over to the folks at http://downrightnow.com/ to checkup on the up-time of Facebook… It seems they are indeed having issues and I am not the only one experiencing it.
