‘We Don’t Deserve To Serve You’- Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg

Published

on

Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg has finally spoken up, after being accused of giving users information out to Trump’s 2016 campaign team, targeting 50 million Facebook users through non-consensual access to their profiles.

This accusation led to the “delete facebook now” movement campaign in which WhatsApp co-founder Brian Acton, has also joined.

It was said that Aleksandr Kogan, a Russian-American Cambridge University professor was first able to collect Facebook users data promising to use them for research, but which was given to Cambridge Analytica.

Mark Zuckerberg said:

“We have a responsibility to protect your data, and if we can’t then we don’t deserve to serve you. I’ve been working to understand exactly what happened and how to make sure this doesn’t happen again. The good news is that the most important actions to prevent this from happening again today we have already taken years ago. But we also made mistakes, there’s more to do, and we need to step up and do it.”

“This was a breach of trust between Kogan, Cambridge Analytica and Facebook. But it was also a breach of trust between Facebook and the people who share their data with us and expect us to protect it. We need to fix that.”

Do Not Touch THE BLACK SPOT YOUR PHONE will hang WhatsApp

I clicked a Black Dot on  WhatsApp And My phone is hanging, WhatsApp Spam Message made My phone hang Help Me

you are prone to receiving unwanted WhatsApp forwards, you have probably come across a message that declares, ‘If you touch the black point, your WhatsApp will hang’, with the said black point lower in the long text.

And sure enough, if you do touch it, your WhatsApp will momentarily stop working or just hang.

Now, don’t worry. It is not any kind of virus that your paranoid uncle has been warning you about. Sometimes you can just mess with a messaging client if you send symbols it doesn’t recognise.

According to YouTuber Tom Scott , When you convert the said text to HTML, you’ll find that there has been a repetition of the control character “&rlm:”.

Basically, you need to understand that some languages were written from right to left. Like anything in Arabic or the Hebrew script. So if you are writing some English, you are going from left to right but if you want to insert a Persian word in it, it will go from right to left, thus scrambling the alignment.

So WhatsApp uses a control character to tell the system that the alignment has changed from right to left. So the creator of this WhatsApp forward used so many of these control characters that it overwhelms your Android device.

What Is The Solution To Stop The Hanging Caused By WhatsApp Message

The Solution is To clear the Chat of the Person That sent the Message

Twitter Urges Users To Change Their Passwords After Finding Internal Bug

Published

on

Twitter

Twitter revealed that they had discovered a bug in their password storage system yesterday. As a result, the social media giant’s top technology executive is urging users to change their passwords “out of an abundance of caution.”

The company’s shares fell 2.7% in after-hours trading after their announcement. In a brief but telling blog post, Twitter’s CTO Parag Agrawal disclosed that the company was able to fix the glitch, while also revealing that an extensive internal investigation “shows no indication of breach or misuse by anyone.”

Agrawal apologized for the mishap, noting how the folks over at Twitter “recognize and appreciate the trust you place in us, and are committed to earning that trust every day.”

The company did not reveal how many users’ passwords were stored in the text, but recentdata shows that their average monthly user count reaches upwards of 336 million accounts worldwide.

Agrawal notes how the company uses an industry-standard “hashing” password storage mechanism which effectively replaces a user’s actual password with a “random set of numbers and letters that are stored in Twitter’s system.” However, the recently-discovered bug enabled passwords to be stored without fully completing the hashing process.

As a result, Agrawal assures the general public that he and his team “found this error ourselves, removed the passwords, and are implementing plans to prevent this bug from happening again.”

You can Now Recharge Airtime Directly from Facebook App for Android Users: See How to Do It

Published

Recharge Via Facebook

Facebook has expanded it’s app features as it now enables users to recharge directly from the app without using any their party app.

The testimony so far is from India users as they are presently making use of the feature in the facebook stable app. The new feature option is initially available within the latest Facebook app for Android devices.

Is still unknown on when ios users will be able to get the feature but we advise users to wait patiently as it seems to be available later on for them.

HOW TO RECHARGE AIRTIME WITH FACEBOOK APP

To access the new option, go to the hamburger icon that sits next to the notifications icon and then tap the Mobile Recharge option. On some versions, the option is available titled Mobile Top-Up. If it’s not available on the general screen, you can check the availability of the recharge option by tapping the See More option.

 

Once you’ve accessed the mobile recharge option, the Facebook app will show you a welcome screen that will specify all the credit and debit cards that you’ve already added to your Facebook account if you ever purchased any ads in the past. Now, you’ll just need to tap Recharge Now button from the welcome screen and then you’ll be asked to enter your mobile phone details. The app automatically selects the operator of the entered number most of the times. But if it’s not selecting by its own, you can choose your operator manually by tapping the Select Operator dropdown list.

After that, you need to enter a recharge amount. It is worth noting here that the app also has a feature to provide you with all the available packs for your mobile number. You just need to tap Browse Plans button that is available next to amount textbox to view packs for your number. After selecting a particular pack or entering a recharge amount, the Facebook app takes you to the Order Details page from where you can select any of the previously added credit or debit card or add a new one by selecting the Credit or Debit Card option.

Now, there is a Place Order button that you need to press to proceed with the recharge process. The app will ask for an OTP or 3D secure password to accomplish the recharge. Lastly, the app will send you a confirmation receipt after it completes the recharge process.

It is worth noting here that the Facebook app is currently accepting payments for mobile recharges only through credit and debit cards. This means you won’t be able to recharge your account using net banking, UPI, or any other payments methods. The app also doesn’t allow you to integrate any of your mobile wallets. This certainly makes sense as Facebook is apparently aiming to take on existing mobile wallets by adding new payment features to its platform.
