Never Miss A Post on Facebook

Do you know that you are not always see every post your friends or pages you like? Some post is not shown on your news feed. When some of your friend updated his/her status, you may not see his/her latest status, but your other friend can see it. That’s because Facebook controlled what Facebook think it is interesting for you.
How Facebook determine that it is interesting for you? It collect the data you submitted to Facebook. They know who’s post you ‘like’ most, and whoever you ignored on status updates or anything you missed. Why Facebook do this? We want all to know all of our friend latest status, aren’t we? That’s because Facebook think that you’re annoyed because a lot of information post on your feed. However, you can take back the control of what you want to see!

Change Your Ordinary Cellphone to be As Useful As BlackBerry

Many people in Indonesia bought Blackberry for features that can be found on ordinary cellphone. Most people I know want Facebook Application, 24/7 online messenger, push mail, and unlimited internet quota.
First of all, I want to compare normal Blackberry internet usage with internet charged per month. Common provider charge Rp. 5000 per day to get unlimited internet usage, but they use not that much. Compare with XL’s internet package Rp. 5 per kilobyte (or Rp. 20.000 for 40MB which is about Rp 0.5 per kilobyte). Normal people use internet for chatting and Facebook. Based on my survey, people open about 30 mobile facebook page which is about 5-8 kilobytes. Chatting for  hours non-stop (equivalent with normal chatting for a day) is about 50 kilobytes, text email is less than 1 kilobyte per email, and facebook notifications email is no more than 5 kilobytes per email if no attachments (photos) is downloaded.

Banyak orang di Indonesia membeli Blackberry untuk fitur yang dapat ditemukan di handphone biasa. Hampir semua orang yang aku kenal mau aplikasi Facebook, internet yang terus online, push mail, dan internet unlimited.

Sebelumnya, aku mau membandingkan internet Blackberry yang ditagihkan per bulan. Kebanyakan provider seharga Rp. 5000 per hari untuk internet unlimited, tetapi mereka tidak menggunakan sebanyak itu. Bandingkan dengan paket internet XL yang hanya Rp. 5 per kilobyte (atau Rp. 20.000 untuk 40MB yang berarti Rp. 0.5 per kilobyte). Kebanyakan orang menggunakan internet untuk chatting dan facebook. Menurut surveiku, masyarakat membuka 30 halaman facebook yang sekitar 5-8 kilobyte. Chatting selama beberapa jam non-stop (sama dengan chatting biasa seharian) sekitar 50 kilobyte, email yang berupa tulisan saja yang tidak sampai 1 kb per email, dan pemberitahuan Facebook yang tidak sampai 5kb per email jika foto tidak didownload.

Save Banwidth: By Cache
