TIPS “N” TRICKS

Facebook >> Make Free Calls on iPhone

facebook free call

Facebook Messenger for iPhone now lets you place free VoIP calls to your friends–as long as they, too, have downloaded the app. Here is how the new feature works and how to use it.   To use the feature, both you and the friend you want to call must have the Facebook Messenger for iPhone app installed.    To place a call, open the Messenger app and search for a friend. Tap the Info but- ton in the top-right of your friend’s conversation page to bring up the screen shown at left. If your friend is using the Messenger app, the “Free Call” button will appear in bold; if not, it will be greyed out.  To place a call, simply tap the “Free Call” button. If your friend’s phone is locked, he or she will receive a push notification alert- ing them of your incoming call. Once they unlock their phone, they can tap to answer the call. Your friend’s phone will not ring as if it were receiving typical call.

LinkedIn >> Creating A Compelling Profile

Here are a few things to keep in mind to create a compelling LinkedIn Profile.
• A Professional Photo:  The ideal photo to use is one taken by a professional photographer but at the very least it should be a photo of just you, ideally taken from the shoulders up, and your appearance should be neat and tidy, just as you would want to look going into an job interview.

• A Compelling Summary: The summary is the perfect place to tell people who you are, what you do, and why you are on LinkedIn. Remember: if you are looking for a new employment opportunity, it may be unwise to make that clear if your current employer is not aware of your intentions.

• Add Experience and Education Quickly: Utilise the “Import Resume” feature to instantly complete your Experience and Education sections.  Review to ensure the correct information is added in the relevant section.  Add awards, activities, and interests where needed.

• Get Connected: Start with your existing contacts by letting LinkedIn scan your email address book to find out who you know is on LinkedIn. Do not  worry, LinkedIn will not automatically send requests to your contacts; you can choose to whom you want to send a request.

Enable or Disable Plug-in in Google Chrome

Adobe Flash Player is directly integrated with Google Chrome and enabled by default. Available updates for Adobe Flash Player are automatically included in Chrome system updates.    If you want to use Adobe Flash Player in other browsers, you will need to separately download the Adobe Flash Player for those browsers.

These instructions apply to Google Chrome on Windows, Mac, Linux, and Chrome OS. Type chrome:plugins in the address bar to open the Plug-ins page.    On the Plug- ins page that appears, find the “Flash” listing. To enable Adobe Flash Player, click the Enable link under its name and to dis- able Adobe Flash Player completely, click the Disable link under its name.    Note: If you have previously installed Adobe Flash Player separately, you will see two files listed for the plug-in. If both are listed as enabled, the version bundled with Chrome will be used. To enable a specific version of Adobe Flash Player, click Details in the upper-right corner of the page, and then click the Enable link for the version of Adobe Flash Player you want to enable.

Add Network Name to Your Name

You must have seen in people’s profile on Facebook, company/organisation name below the person name. This is a nice way to flaunt your company, organisation, college, etc. To put such a caption below your name, follow these steps – 1) Go to Account –> Account Settings and Click on Networks tab.  In “Find a network” text box put your network name. As soon as you put your network name, Facebook will drop down the list of available networks. Choose the one which is applicable and put network email address in the next text box.

Now you will need to verify your net- work by clicking on the link sent by Facebook on the email address you mentioned. As soon as you click on the link, network gets added to your profile.  If you want to check whether the network has been added to your profile or not, just go to any of your friend’s profile  and click on Friends and scroll down to your name. There you can see the added network’s name below your name.
