Connecting Everyone All in One Place

These, many people have been using the Internet to do almost anything. From the simple reading of e-mails to online banking, the Internet has become part of our lives already. Every morning, while I’m having my warm mug of chocolate or my fave ginger tea, I always read my mails on my phone and that became a habit already. Later on, I’ll transfer to my desktop to continue checking my mails and my social networking site accounts. I’ll do all of them before I start to work.

It’s also amazing to see long lost friends and relatives and re-connect with them through Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. I’m sure you have already tried searching for a friend, former classmates or relatives on Facebook just like what I did before. I have found some while others seem to be out of reach.

With all the social networking accounts that we have, I guess some people have a hard time jumping from one site to another to check all them. I just found that, can connect all our social networks, blogging sites and online email accounts all in one place. It’s also a good place to find other people that you wanted to have a connection again. Furthermore, you can also see people who’ve been searching for you as well.

I guess with all the innovation on the way people connect and find each other, more people will be re-connected and much faster and easier now.

Social Networking Sites and Me

I'm pretty sure that you already have lots of different accounts on various social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, LinkedIn and lots more. I remember my very first account is on Friendster few years back and I'm not sure if anyone is still using the site to socialize as I have deleted my account there for few years now. A friend of mine is encouraging me to Facebook when it started or became a hit but I declined. At first, I thought it was just a waste of time looking at someone else's account, pictures or I was never really interested, haha.. arte ko pa

I always see my SIL open her account and showed me some pictures if her friends and families and would you believe that one of my cousin is her friend already. After seeing pictures of my cousin whom I have not seen in many many years in Facebook that's the only time that I decided to create an account at Facebook. So it was on only February 8, 2010 when I joined Facebook. A late bloomer huh.. hehe..

After creating an account I was able to reconnect to my relatives in the US and some parts of the world. I even found my long lost friends way back in college. Groups and Forums are very helpful as well, not only I get to interact with friends and relatives, I  also met new friends and bloggers. I also have twitter account where I can interact with my friends and sister. It's a venue for me to rant sometimes.

Now, I'm very thankful for social networking sites for it reconnected me to my friends and relatives. Even if I have an account at Facebook, twitter, Instagram, it doesn't mean that I will just add anyone in my account. I only add friends or people that I know.. (pili pa nga eh ), you know..

How about you, how has social networking changed your life?

Scary Identity Theft

I guess it's not new to you that your identity can now be stolen. It's pretty scary to know that identity can really happen especially these days when technology is on its surge. Credit cards can now be stolen and used, your paypal account can be hacked, your social networking account, sites or blogs can be accessed by internet hackers and more. Poor thing, we come to an age where technology is used in bad ways by crooks.

I had an interesting read a while ago and it's about those Radio Frequency Identification Devices (RFID) that are used and put on ID's, credit cards, passports and other places to transmit different data. It can speed up transactions but the bad thing is that your data or identity can be stolen when some crook people or hackers try to make a rfid readers to get all your data. Wow, that is pretty scary and it's really happening.

Since those things are happening already, rfid blocking wallets are invented to prevent those readers to read your data in your passports, credit cards etc. thus preventing identity theft. I hope more ways will be invented to stop those hackers from invading our privacy.

Communication Made Easy

It's pretty amazing to know that communications these days are much faster and easier. Gone are the days when you need to wait for a week or two just to get the reply of your letter via mail. Though postal mail are still used to send message, it's not the ideal and used form of communication anymore. E-mail is much faster and easy and in just seconds the recipient will receive it instantly.

There are other form of communicating with our lived ones, clients, and to other people. Chat messengers, Facebook, Twitter and other forms of social networking. Not to mention the mobile phone that became a necessity already rather than a luxury. Texting and even calling someone is very easy. In the recent years, cell phone manufacturers are coming up with different style of mobile phones where we as consumers can choose whatever features that we like to have.

Blackberry curve , iPhone by Apple, Motorola Xoom and Nokia N series are just some of the popular cellphones in the market today. All you need to do is to find out what are the features that they are offering and match it with your cellphone and budget needs. These days, if you don't have a cellphone, it seems that you've been left behind.

Reconnected Through Facebook

I just found out that a friend of mine whom I have not seen for the last 10 years has a recently opened salon business. I only knew about it when she found me through Faceboook. I scoured her photos and shout out and I was so happy to see her family and her business. I sent her a private message congratulating her and to update each other with our lives. It’s always great to reconnect with friends after so many years.

Thanks to Facebook for I have been reconnected with my former classmates and even with my relatives. About 2 years ago, I do not intend to sign up at FB as I don’t see the need for it but when I saw some photos of my cousins in US via my SIL’s account, I immediately signed up. Now, Facebook has become one of my venue to look for old friends/relatives, share my thoughts, showcase my digi-designs, and follow my favourite websites.

People have been reconnected faster and now have the chance to easily follow what sites they love.
