Difference Between “Like” and “Become A Fan” In Facebook

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010 | Social Network with No Comments »

Did you know that Facebook users click “Like” twice as much as they click “Become a Fan“?  Why?

Become a Fan” is a button placed on web sites, blogs, and just about anywhere in the web.  Businesses, and individuals can setup their own free Facebook pages to interact with customers, friends and visitors.  Facebook users can then click the “Become a Fan” button so that they can follow a particular Facebook page. A particular Facebook user will now become part or member of page’s “Fan Page,” and the Facebook page will be listed as a user’s page.

Like,” on the other hand is a link placed after uploaded pictures, wall posts, and status updates on Facebook. Individual users can click “Like” if they want to give an approval, or thumbs-up for a particular picture, wall post, or status update. If Facebook users click on “Like“, or give comment on a specific picture, wall post, or status update, its owner will then be notified if they set it up in their Facebook e-mail settings.

Like” is quite an easier way of acknowledging something on Facebook without associating what you liked in your profile.  “Become a Fan,” will enlist Facebook page on your Facebook profile and I believe this makes it hard to click this particular button.  Not all Facebook users wants to be associate a particular page with their profile.

Beware Of Facebook Email Scam In Circulation

Friday, March 19th, 2010 | Social Network with No Comments »

A new threat is in circulation over the internet that “threatens computers worldwide”, according to security firm, McAfee.

Facebook users are asked to “delete e-mails asking you to open an attachment to get a new Facebook password.”

Opening this malicious email, pretending to be coming from Facebook, and then the attachment, will trigger an installation of a password stealer. According to McAfee this email when triggered will “potentially access any username and password combination utilized on that computer.”

Remember everyone that Facebook would never send a new password without being asked and it will never require its users to open an attachment.

Note:  Please spread the word to your Facebook friends and help them avoid being a victim of this scam.

LPU acquired Globe Telecom Leased Line for its Internet

Thursday, March 11th, 2010 | EDUCATION, Internet, Telecommunication with No Comments »

The  Lyceum of the Philippines University (LPU) Batangas, in its pursuit of academic excellence and providing quality services to its students, recently upgraded its internet line.

LPU‘s previous internet connectivity is a Philippine Long Distance Telephone (PLDT) DSL with a bandwidth of 3.5 Mbps.  But since DSL is not a guaranteed connection, LPU suffered from intermittent internet connection due to the increase in internet users within the university.  Internet user connectivity includes wireless fidelity (wifi), and wired connections.  This prompted the management to look for a more reliable internet connectivity.  Fortunately,  Globe Telecom recommended a 2 Mbps leased line to solve the problem.

After several weeks of testing and monitoring, we can say that LPU‘s internet connectivity has given our students an enjoyable and reliable browsing experience.

What is a Leased Line
