Facebook Social Inbox Service – Will it Work?


So what do I think of Facebook’s new “Social” inbox?  I’m going to avoid any privacy arguments here and focus specifically on the potential of the service they describe.

I’m going to go along with the sections they have in their release video which is included below.

Do you watch and listen to music videos on YouTube a lot? Perhaps you should take a look at a JukeFly…

Are you the kind of person who goes to YouTube when they want to listen to a song?  Be it for listening to something new, on a friends advice, or perhaps just to listen to a few songs you already like but don’t have your music with you.  Well if that is the case then you should probably check out JukeFly.

I’m going to start with explaining what JukeFly aims to achieve and the fundamentals behind the service and then follow up with some screenshots of its interface with annotations as to what does what and where.

Jukebox aims to do one thing really well, make the music you want to listen to, available wherever you are.  Ok sure there are plenty of other services which share this aim such as Spotify, my personal favorite Grooveshark, and indeed Windows Media Player now supports streaming to anywhere you can log into you Windows Live Account.  However, one shouldn’t dismiss JukeFly off the bat as there are a couple of quirks which might make JukeFly a better choice for some users and here they are: Read more

How to Use Facebook’s Friend List Function

People who follow even the slightest information on the internet are at least aware of the risks associated with your public face.  The ones which spring to mind first for me are things associated with employers checking your personal life out and possibly more seriously, identity theft.  You might think “Oh it’ll never happen to me!”, the fact is it could, and it ?might, so you might as well spend a few minutes lowering the risk.  After all ignorance isn’t really an excuse when you find out you are being held up when coming back from holiday because you’ve committed fraud in another country you’ve never been to.  Sure you might be able to sort it out in the end but it sure wouldn’t be easy to fix and can be avoided.

Why pick on Facebook? There are plenty of other sites which make your information public.

Why this article picks Facebook as it’s example isn’t only because of it’s size and popularity but mostly because of the ideals behind it’s development.  Amongst many online communities there has been a huge backlash against Facebook for their “irresponsibility”.  In fact some large communities which I read regularly have published several articles showing guides how to quit or at least “cripple” your Facebook experience.  The “irresponsibility” that a large number of people have backlashed against is because of how Facebook fundamentally operates an “opt out” mentality rather than the usual “opt in” method of offering new services to its users.  It also happens that these functions happen to always result in your information being public by default.  Ok…so what you might say?  Well there are some pretty important reasons which you should at least know about… Read more

1 What are the advantages?

(if you don’t care or just want to know about the site skip to the next heading)

What one does at one’s own computer is completely dependent on scenario, necessity (some of us) and mood.  The first two aren’t something which you can easily change.  If you need to look up how much that item of clothing costs or if you need to send some emails before 5pm  you can’t change the fact that you are using the computer for that reason.  These factors are inevitably going to affect your mood when you approach and are using your computer so having your computer in a way which is going to help your performance is obviously advantageous.
