New Facebook Features: Editing, Timeline cards and comment buttons

There are some new changes on Facebook. One of them is an 'upgrade'.  You used to be able to edit a comment (not a post) within about 60 seconds of the posting but unfortunately the option disappeared if someone else commented before you decided to edit it.

Now, as of June, 2012, you can edit the comment at any time. It is available on the upper corner of the right hand side of your comment. Once finished, it will show the comment was edited and show the change that was made underneath the comment.  Also, if someone has notifications, they will receive two notices, one for the the original post and one for the edited post, so keep this in mind if you edit, edit, edit! This change really helps when following the flow of the thread as your only option in the past was to delete and re-post, often further down.

Another change you might have noticed is if you are commenting, the comment button has disappeared.  Once you hit enter your comment is posted. If you wish to get long winded and add a paragraph break, press Shift + Enter.

Last but not least, you can now see a change when you hover over someone's profile picture on Facebook. You see a little different view called a "timeline card".  Matter of fact, for a limited time, Moo.com is giving away Facebook Timeline cards for your personal or business use for the cost of shipping... not bad for 50 freebies. 

Now Facebook needs to let you edit your original posts in the same manner instead of only having the option to delete them and start over. Maybe that will be in another set of updates.☺

"Hello, This is Bridget (Or Rachel) from Card Holder Services"

When it comes to running a business, the last thing you need is to be inundated with junk phone calls and the number one pest is "Card Holder Services". Matter of fact, the FTC considers "Bridget from Card Holder Services" to be Enemy #1 . Well, the FTC may not have solved this ongoing problem but I have found help from the customer reviews at Amazon.com. I searched online, then narrowed it down to a couple of options. I was very excited when I found the CPR Call Blocker capable of blocking 1200  (yes, 1200) numbers. Robocallers can change their number and I still can block them!  I reduced the robocallers to my business line within a couple of days of adding this device. CPR Call Blocker V108 - 1200 Number Capacity - World #1 - Block Telemarketing Calls Now! (Amazon.com Affiliate Link but personal review without any payment. Just passing on a great tip!) The setup took about 15 minutes for me (some said it only took a couple of minutes in the reviews). The ins

Things you DON'T want on your website

Now, this admission will reveal my age.  I have been a part of designing websites through ~every single aspect~ shown on this infographic chart from Who Is Hosting This . Click here to view the infographic. You may need to click again on the image to make it large enough to read. From gradients to web counters, I have done them all. Take my advice and do not ask me to add these things to your website unless you are wanting a "retro" look. Except maybe drop shadows, I like drop shadows. They may have their place depending on the design.☺

Washable Computer Keyboards

There is almost always a cup of coffee on my desk. Yes, ALWAYS.  But there is a risk. Once a keyboard is wet, it is a gonner.. toast, terminated. When my daughter was much younger, in elementary school, she was home after school and wanted to help clean house so she took my proprietary keyboard from my Amstrad 8086 Dual Floppy computer (now a museum piece). and washed it.  As in, put it in a sink of soapy dish water and washed it.  It was very expensive to replace the micro-controller for that keyboard let me tell you! Well, it isn't really new but there are some washable keyboards on the market now.  Logitech has a the scrubbable, submersible, spill-proof, K310 Keyboard that has pretty good reviews.  Kensington K64407US Pro also has a washable keyboard with anti-microbial protection for a little bit less money.  There are also washable mice but those are usually covered in silicone which I personally would prefer to not hold onto throughout the day. I did find the Seal Sh
