Dil ki nahin Dimaag ki lag gayi...

You know what, I listened this song "Dil ki toh lag gayi" from the Movie Nautanki Saala, I like this song and right from that moment is gaane ne mere dimaag ki lga di he :) although this songs talks about "Dil ki toh lag gayi" :)

Does it ever happened to you that you liked a particular song, heard it 4-5 times and then you feel that this song is playing continuously in your mind every time? Whatever work you are doing your mind is playing this song in background in parallel to giving you inputs to do that work (multiprocessing..) and the moment you start humming or whistling a song then its the same one on your lips. 

It doesn't matter how many times you say STOP!! STOP!! to your mind or try stopping it by putting your finger on upside of your eye (The Rowdy Rathore style) it doesn't stop. Its like conscious mind wants to work and subconscious mind wants to play this song at the same time, two parts of brain competing with each other to see who wins either by distracting me from work completely or getting me concentrated on work completely. Log kehte hein ki apne dimaag ki nahin dil ki suno but sometimes dil k darwaze pe dastak dene pe bhi koi jawab nahin milta lekin aisi situation me to dil bhi kehta he ki "beta, kaam kar le nahin to teri **** lag jayegi". Lastly, feeling irritated and helpless you have to just let your brain fight because dimaag to dimaag he... Dil to pagal he lekin aisi situation me to saala dimaag pagal he.. Nautanki Saala!!

Well, this what happening with me, let's see how long this continues :)

Monday Morning Blues..

Monday, a day to start new week and like most of you I also don't like Monday morning blues. 

I everyday look forward to go to my office and do work but still Monday of every week is the most unmanageable day for me. I don't know what weekend does to my body, every plan or procedures to avoid Monday morning blues gets fail at the moment when I have to wake up in the morning, I don't know how many times my alarm clock goes for snooze round before I actually switch it off.

The hangover of sleep doesn't go very easily, I don't know about you but I usually feel sleepy and lazy whole day and after completing my whole day at office (anyhow..) I just want to fall asleep right after having my dinner so that I can get some extra sleep to compensate the left over sleep of Monday and to avoid Tuesday morning blues but in reality this does not happens most of the time :( . The whole day I felt sleepy and thinking about getting some more sleep but the moment when I try to sleep early on Monday evening I could not, I don't know why my mind plays these strange games with  my body.

The same thing happens on Friday night (I know you must be thinking who sleeps early on Friday night.... well, neither I), the joy and excitement of weekend, the feeling to get lazy just takes the thoughts of sleeping on usual time away on Friday evening :).... isn't it strange? saala kuch to chemical locha he...

Well, you may find many tips and tricks to avoid Monday morning blues but I am sure for most of you they gets fail on the Monday morning.

Are you Facebook Dumb or Facebook Intelligent?

Seriously, tell me are you a Facebook dumb or Facebook intelligent?

Well, if you are not getting what I mean by Facebook dumb or Facebook intelligent and want to know about it then keep reading, otherwise, if you think this is a stupid question or you already know the answer then you may leave this page right away.(If you are leaving then thanks for increasing the visitor counter by one and I hope you come back here again :D)

So, what I meant by Facebook dumb or Facebook intelligent is:- (In my view)

1. A person who uses Facebook with out caring about privacy settings or about the audience of their profile can be categorized as Facebook dumb i.e. a person who post/share anything on their profile mainly photos or their friend's photos with public settings can be considered as Facebook dumb.

2. A person who uses Facebook by taking in to consideration that who is going to be the audience for their each post can be categorized as Facebook intelligent i.e. a person who does not post their personal or their friend's information publicly.

Although, if a person is posting something with public settings on purpose then the above categories are not for them.

If you fall under the first category then keep reading else congratulations you are not Facebook dumb.

Well, through some shared articles or photos on Facebook you might have read about misuse of photos posted by people here. I am not saying that it is totally true but in a rarest case if it is happening than isn't it worth to give a thought about your privacy setting before posting anything especially picture on Facebook?

Posting pictures with public access on social media portals/websites is something like a irreversible process, once you have posted it then it's not sure that it will not exist anymore the moment you delete it.

I am not saying that you should stop posting but always choose what you want to share with public and what with your friends, even Facebook has customized access settings to a very good extent in terms of choosing the audience of your content.

Oftentimes while browsing Facebook I come across many profiles where I saw the entire albums of people who are not in my friends list, I thought they might have album/photos visibility settings set to friends of friends but to my surprise they were posted as public. If I can see them then any body on this Facebook world can see them. This is the situation when I call such profile owners as Facebook dumb.

Well, it may be possible that you are falling in this category unknowingly because there can be many reasons for that. In this era of smart phones and tablets people generally use their smart device to upload photos as it is the most easiest way to share your picture among friends without taking the pain to first transfer pictures from your smart device to desktop/laptop and then upload them manually. It could be one of the reason to categorize one as Facebook dumb.

Facebook application or in fact any other social media applications on Windows, Android and Mac platforms makes this task easy for you, just go to the gallery, select pictures, select share on Facebook/Twitter/Google +, enter your status and done. After pressing button done the application goes in background and upload your pictures to your account but, here, I would like you to keep one thing in mind, you still have to select privacy settings of your album otherwise it will get posted as public.

Well, I am not going to mention or reiterate all the privacy settings of Facebook here as you can refer them there itself but I would like to quote some tips:-

1. Select your audience while posting through any smart device.

2. While uploading your pictures through web interface do check settings. Look for settings button while creating album or adding photos in a album through web interface. When Facebook changes it album creating and photo uploading interface then buttons may get rearranged.

3. When posting through your wall "what's on your mind?" then select your audience before posting.

4. Make separate lists from your friends list to classify your photos, posts among the group. For example, make a list of all family members among whom you can share your personal family photos or make a list of your bff among whom you can share your top secret stuff :).

5. Decide what you want to share with your friends and what with your friend of friend.

6. While tagging your friends check if you are not compromising their security settings.

7. Android devices comes with a feature of instant upload on Google+  i.e. any picture you will click on your phone will get upload automatically from your gallery on Google+. This feature is enabled by default so check your phone settings and disable it if you don't want instant upload.

8. Cover photos are public be default and you can not customize it so decide if you want to post your picture on it.

9. You can select visibility settings of your friends list, albums, which pages or to whom you are following and who all are following you. Select your setting.

10. You can view your profile as your friend i.e. you can check how one of your friend will see your profile, this is an useful facility provided by Facebook to adjust your privacy settings. The default view is set as public.

So, you, Facebook dumb people I hope you get my purpose of writing this post. Now don't be a Facebook dumb, be a Facebook intelligent.
