Facebook on Nokia 1100

In this post I will explain how to access Facebook on any mobile without internet or GPRS connection.

Now a days everyone(even school students) using smart phones like apple,android,windows etc but there are still some people who would like to use classic mobiles like Nokia 1100 I am one of them.

Right now I am using Nokia 1280 mobile.I cannot access Internet from my mobile. I am getting bored while travelling.

But luckily I found a way to access Facebook on my mobile.Shocked?

Yes There is a way to access Facebook from any mobile that has no connectivity like GPRS/EGDE/3G.

Just dail *325# (or *fbk#) from your mobile.No need of Internet  GPRS. Here is the quick tour.

FaceBook without Internet

Dial *325# and provide your username and password that’s it.You can update your status instantly chat with your friends who are online,add new friends,read notifications etc.

But you may feel difficulty in reading stories one by one.But still it’s a good service to use.If you don’t have internet connectivity.

How to Use It?

There are so many shortcuts available I have been playing with them.

Post on friends Timeline:*325*3#
Facebook Chat: *325*33#
Birthday Reminder: *325*76#
Status Juggler: *325*75#

Add new friends by phone number

Just dial <*325*friend’s mobile number#> to add new friends on Facebook, instantly!

For Example: To Add Me type  *325*8197551028#

Is It Free?

It’s a service provided by fonetwish. Updating your status is completely free, but using other features, such as posting on a wall, checking notifications, and adding friends is not free. Facebook by Fonetwish is a subscription service that charges Rs. 1/- day for unlimited usage.

Not only Facebook you can connect twitter,Email(Yahoo,gmail,hotmail).First 15 days free of cost. And after that per day 1 rupee. Dial *325# and select combo offer (which include facebook,twitter,Emails).

Currently it’s available on networks like Airtel, BSNL,Vodafone,Tata,Uninor,Aircel, Idea, Reliance,Videocon, Loop mobile and Tata Docomo in India,Most of the networks are covered.To unsubscribe dial *325*22#.

I have smart phone why to use this service?

Even though you have smart phones, when you stuck in remote areas where there is no internet or no other form of data like GPRS what you will do? Still you can access Facebook without Internet and you can connect with your friends at a reasonable price.And no additional roaming charges.Just 1 rupee per day.

You can connect your mobile from Facebook account also.

Go to http://apps.facebook.com/fonetwish/ and activate your mobile.

GoogleZeitgeist2012

As a human everyone is curious to know about what other people doing in their daily life that’s why Facebook is very famous! Am I correct?

2012 is going to end within few days,Do you know what happened in the past one year in Internet world or Google? Want know trending topics around the world? And especially what other people are Googling in the internet? this is very interesting right?

Google introduced Google Zeitgeist 2012 to know How the world searched in the past year,this includes 1.2 trillion queries in 146 languages from 55 countries.

What is Google Zeitgiest?

Even I am also confused what is Zeitgiest? German word ,It means spirit of the age or spirit of the time. i.e., which influences the world over the period of time.Now your clear right why Google took this name.Google started this service in 2001.

But this time with more features and also with Maps and Images.And filtered according to countries,languages.

Gangam Style second most trending topic all around the world.I loved this song.Whitney Houston is number One.

These are the some trending topics around the world in 2012 I found from Google Zeitgeist You can download entire list from here.Ipad  is the only keyword which holding it name in TOP10 from 2010.

Google Zeitgeist 2012 In India:

This time I was shocked with the results Sunny Leone is the third most keyword searched in India.While IBPS and Gate Exam are first two.Salman khan’s Ek tha tiger fourth.

Aakash tablet and Jabong(.)com are in the Top 10.

When coming to people no doubt in that right again Sunny leone.Two more bollywood stars are in the TOP 10 Poonam Pandey(3rd place And in 2011 4th place she is the only one holding her name in TOP10 when compared to last year 2011) and Sherlyn Chopra(6).

Anna hazare and Sachin lost their place from TOP10.

And also Teenager Alia Bhatt(Student of the year) daughter of Mahesh Bhatt is in 4th Place.

See The Past 10 year trends:

I tried to gather Past 10 year trends, You can see these Google Zeitgeist lists from 2001 onwards from here

How Google Zeitgeist gather data?

All the searches Google studied are anonymous. No personal information was used.Google gathered these data from multiple sources including Google Trends. Trending topics are “the searches that had the highest amount of traffic over a period in 2012 as compared to 2011.” While The “most searched” queries are the most popular terms for 2012—ranked in order of the queries with the largest volume of searches.

Dallas_Clayton_An_Awesome_World_small

Today My Google Chrome crashed and I installed it again from official Google chrome page.There is a link on the bottom of the page “Read an Awesome Book” as shown below.

Read an awesome book

 

I thought it’s a guide to use Google Chrome,But It was about a dad, named Dallas Clayton, and a little book he wrote for his son about dreaming big, fantastic dreams – called An Awesome Book!.

He wrote this book for his son,after that he wanted to share it with others,but faced many problems getting it published. Instead of giving up,he put a version of the book online for free,and self-published some copies.People started sharing the book, and he sold thousands of copies via word of mouth.

Why this is special? Why Google given this much important to his little book?

After seeing this video  in Youtube I saw one comment by an anonymous guy “I mean this was awesome and all but had almost nothing to do with chrome.” .Correct right,it’s nothing to do with Chrome.But why it’s in official Google Chrome download page?

I spent some time on this and finally I found the answer from Chrome Official Blog.

Tom Oliveri, from Chrome Marketing said “Four years ago, the Chrome team kicked off a mission to make a better web for everyone. For us, helping kids – of all ages – use the web to read and dream is a pretty cool way to bring this mission to life. In that spirit, we wanted to harness the power of the web to get the book into the hands of as many people as possible.”

Chrome launched a new application for reading it online.You can install this from Google Chrome Web Store. This is an online version of the book,which you can read in any one of 17 languages.You can click on the text to hear Dallas with some awesome sound effects.

Google has a way to always make their advertisements really fascinating. After    reading(listening) from Web Store,he seems like an inspirational father like my DAD.

After that he wrote three more books

An awesome book of thanks
An awesome book of love
Magic magic do Good.

In Dallas’ own words, he wrote this book to be shared. “If you enjoy it, please feel free to share it with anyone and everyone you know and maybe that way we can all dream big together!”

Google Alerts

How many blogs you subscribed for latest news?How you ever subscribed for “Google Alerts” to get latest news?With Google alerts we will get an instant email  notification of the latest relevant search results based on our interests.With Google alerts we can track everything on Web.It’s a simple but powerful search tool that works based on Google Search engine.

Here is the simple way to create Google alerts.Go to Google alerts

Google Alerts

For example if you want to keep track of Windows 8 release then you can create an alert {Search query:”Windows 8 release” result type:news How often:As-it-happens} or you can restrict search results to only Microsoft using site: operator in search query you can type { “Windows 8 release” site:microsoft.com }.Now you will an update whenever microsoft release news about Windows 8.

And one more thing you may get irrelevant results if you do not specify Search query exactly here is the simple tip to remove irrelevant results.

Put the keyword within double quotes (“Windows 8 release”) it will exactly search for “Windows 8 release” and remove all search results for Windows. And use site operator for example if we want to get news about apple new releases you can restrict your search results to apple.com using site operator.

Most websites like Forbes, CNet or CNN let us setup free email alerts for tracking any topic on their websites. When a story contains your selected topic or your keyword, you will receive e-mail alerts.but most of these sites require registration for alerts and also there is no customization options like (site: etc..) in that case we may get irrelevant results also we can use google alerts to set up notifications, no need maintain multiple accounts on these websites. If you want to know news about Apple applications you can create alert as {“Apple applications ” site:Forbes.com}.

More Option Link:

You want to download some software most of us enter search query like “Download Avast antivirus” We will get so many web pages but not direct links to the downloads.(Some times it will shows).Have you observed left side panel of Google search page

google application searchIf you select more options you will get so many options like Blogs,shopping,patents and applications.

Select applications and you will get exact links to software downloads.

You may also search Android,Nokia,Samsung,apple applications.

I already explained how to use Images options in my earlier posts,you may refer those links to know more about Google Images options.

Search Google By Image And Use Google image search Smartly. Spend some time on More options to explore searching skills.

Google Scholar:

Searching for articles and research material just go to Google Scholar. Create alerts for new researching topics and you will get email updates whenever an article published in your niche or topics.Helpful to PhD students to research on a particular topic.

 Intext Operator:

This is one more cool operator in Google Searching.For example you want to search for Data structures notes. You can write search query as

Data Structures site:stanford.edu

Here my intention is to search data structures material in Stanford university.If we want to search for Data structures using algorithms just change the search query as below

Data Structures site:stanford.edu intext:algorithm

You can use Data Structures and algorithm as  search query but above query will return exact results.

Date Range searching option:

Google has option to filter results based on Date ranges.

Date Range Search option

In the left side panel click on More search tools,Select custom range and enter from and to dates to filter dates based on time.

For example you want to search news for fifa world cup 2010.You may select date range from June2010 to July 2010.

Color Filter

We use google image search for celebrities photos,places etc. But with this Image search we can find whatever you want,I will share my experience with Image search.

Google Image search providing so many filters like time,type,size,color etc.I love to read algorithm books more,I read one book about algorithms long back.I don’t remember author name and not even book name.It’s an algorithm book that’s it.

Also Read : Use Facebook smartly and save your time  A must Have Facebook feature Definately You will Love It

One day I am searching for that book in Google but I am not able find that book.One day gone in searching,later I lost my patience and quit my search.

Next day I am searching for some images(Again celebrity Image only) and I saw color filter at the bottom left of the page

Color Filter

I selected Black and White I got all Black and white photos.Then I thought of that book it’s cover page is in orange color.

Then I searched for ‘algorithms books’  keyword in Google image search I got so many results,then I filter it by Orange color.Finally I got that book the book name was ‘Algorithms and networking for Computer Games’ and the authors are ‘Jouni Smed’ and ‘Harri Hakonen’.

I wasted my entire day for finding this book finally I found.

FilterImageByColor

 

And another example One of my friend (He is from electronics streams) He wants ‘ Tesla Coil ‘ architecture(No need to bother about Tesla Coil Even I don’t know).I searched for Tesla Coil in Image search. I got so many results as shown below.

 

Tesla Coil

 

Mostly I got Color photos,but he don’t want that color photos then I selected one image as above and Filter it by similar images I got so many Tesla Coil architectures as shown below.

FilterBySimilarImage

We can search whatever we want,if we use Image search smartly.This may be simple trick but it helped me a lot.
