Kenapa Facebook anda ke blokir??

Facebook anda keblokir? - Inilah penyebabnya !!

Memiliki banyak teman di Facebook tentunya sangat menyenangkan. Namun, ternyata jangan dulu Anda mengira dapat berbuat sesukanya. Ada aturan-aturan yang bisa membuat Anda harus kehilangan teman-teman di Facebook karena profil Anda diblokir atau disuspend.

Agar ini tidak terjadi, ada baiknya mengetahui faktor apa saja yang membuat profil Facebook Anda diblokir.

1. Nama Palsu.
Sebaiknya gunakan nama asli saja. Selain orang akan mudah menemukan Anda, juga tidak akan ada yang komplain ke Facebook bila mungkin saja nama palsu yang Anda gunakan ternyata melanggar hak cipta.

2. Jangan terlalu banyak posting di wall.
Memposting terlalu banyak kata-kata yang sama di wall, bisa itu di wall sendiri, orang lain atau wall grup, ternyata bisa membuat profil Anda diblokir.

3. Copy Paste.
Anda tentunya ingin serba cepat melakukan sesuatu. Namun di Facebook jangan terlalu sering melakukan copy-paste, misalnya untuk membalas pesan, menulis di wall dengan kata-kata yang sama persis. Nantinya Anda bisa dianggap melakukan spam. Inipun jelas akan membuat Facebook Anda diblokir.

4. Poke.
Terlalu banyak mencolek (Poke) teman di Facebook juga akan membuat Anda diblokir. Jadi biasa-biasa saja jangan terlalu memperlihatkan perhatian kita yang malah bisa membuat Anda harus kehilangan teman di Facebook.

5. Batasi Teman.
Anda tentu mengira di Facebook bisa memasukan teman sebanyak-banyaknya. Ini salah besar. Katanya, Facebook hanya membatasi sampai 5.000 orang saja. Bila lebih dari itu, maka bersiap-siaplah say goodby to Facebook.

6. Batasi bergabung dengan grup.
Sama seperti daftar teman, jumlah grup yang Anda masuki pun ada batasnya. Anda hanya diperbolehkan bergabung dengan sekitar 200 grup saja.

7. Terakhir yang paling fatal adalah menulis hal-hal yang berbau rasis, fitnah, penghinaan. Facebook akan mengetahui anggotanya yang mempergunakan Facebook untuk menyebarkan sikap permusuhan maupun prilaku negatif lainnya. Jadi, jangan sampai tadinya hanya bercanda, bisa berakibat fatal Facebook Anda diblokir dan mungkin bisa berurusan dengan pihak berwajib.

After stopped for light breakfast, we reached Malacca around 9AM. Met by Br. Harry Bateman, Sis. Daisy Liew and Sis. Chee, we went for Taiwanese Beef Noodle. Nice but a bit to salty for me.
Then, they brought us to Stadhuys area, where we can find many museums nearby and the famous Red Christ Church, built by Dutch on 17th Century, the Clock Tower and Fountain built by British on 19th Century.
After tried the nice ice chendol (@ RM1.70 per bowl), we continued to walk along the Jonker Street. This area is famouse for the peranakan/Baba-Nyonya things.
A lots of shops selling of antique, souveniers and peranakan goods, or you can just walk along the streets..

For lunch, we tried the original Hainanese Chicken Rice Ball. The rice is served in the form of ball, as big as ping-pong ball. For 7 of us, we spend about RM46.00.

Then we proceed direct to Port Dickson by coastal road............ and stayed for 2 nights. The story about Port Dickson is on the other posting.

After rest for 1 hour, at 4PM we drove back to Singapore. We reached Singapore about 7PM.

Nice trip and we are looking forward to go Malacca again........

Reminder... Peringatan...

Laporan wartawan Astrid Isnawatihttp://megapolitan.

Berselancar di dunia maya seperti Facebook, ada rambu-rambu yang harus dipatuhi. Terutama yang menyangkut privasi. Kalau tidak hati-hati, risikonya cukup besar. Bukannya kesenangan yang didapat, justru harta melayang.

Fenomena Facebook alias FB semakin tak terbendung. Tak heran jika FB dinobatkan sebagai situs pertemanan paling diminati di seantero dunia. Dan, seperti dua sisi berlawanan dari koin, di samping menguntungkan,FB pun mempunyai sisi "buruk". Fitur sederhana seperti status dan foto yang dilengkapi tag yang digemari jutaan pengguna Facebook, ternyata berbahaya jika digunakan secara sembrono. Pasalnya, FB memungkinkan teman (mutual friends) mengetahui detail pribadi penggunanya. Bayangkan saja, cukup dengan meng-update status atau mengubah status hubungan dengan pasangan, secara otomatis semua teman mendapatkan notification (pemberitahuan).

Foto-foto yang diunggah lalu di-tag sembarangan dan diset, bisa dilihat siapa pun yang memiliki jaringan pertemanan, juga tak kalah bahaya, lho.

"Di dunia maya, pencitraan diri dicerminkan lewat apa yang di-posting oleh Anda atau orang lain. Jadi, hati-hati dalam memilih foto untuk di-posting" ucap Donny BU, Senior Researcher ICT (Internet and Communication Technology) Watch.

Intinya, kata Doni, jangan sembarangan menyebar data pribadi, mengubah status, menambah teman yang sama sekali asing, atau mengunggah foto didunia maya secara membabi-buta. Di Inggris, contohnya, suami membunuh istrinya karena sang istri mengubah status pernikahan mereka di FB, dari menikah menjadi lajang. Sang suami pun naik pitam dan gelap mata. Menyeramkan, bukan?

Kado Puluhan Juta.

Tak hanya di luar negeri, peristiwa buruk menyangkut salah guna FB juga terjadi di sekeliling kita. Salah satunya menimpa Vira (bukan nama sebenarnya), perempuan berusia 30-an dengan jenjang karier eksekutif di perusahaannya. Sama seperti pengguna FB di berbagai tempat, Vira juga keranjingan. Tiada hari tanpa memperbarui perkembangan terbaru dari akaun pribadi dan tak lupa menjelajahi satu per satu kabar teman-temannya di FB. Suatu hari, dalam boks friend requests, sebuah nama dan foto asing muncul, meminta agar Vira menerima ajakannya untuk berteman. Vira melihat profilnya dan ternyata pria ini berasal dari Turki. Karena tidak memiliki mutual friends, dipastikan dia menggunakan panduan advanced search sampai menemukan akaun Vira, sebuah upaya yang menunjukkan ada usaha lebih dari pria itu. Paras rupawan sang calon teman sedikit banyak membuat hati Vira melunak dan ikon Confirm tanpa ragu, ia klik. Alhasil, resmilah pertemanan mereka. Setelahnya, mereka rajin bertegur sapa di wall untuk menjembatani jauhnya jarak dan perbedaan waktu. Karena si lelaki sangat perhatian dan mengaku punya pekerjaan tetap, Vira mengiyakan ajakan berpacaran. Tak lama kemudian, sang Arjuna datang ke Indonesia. Ia bersikap amat santun dan supel. Dalam sekejap, keluarga besar Vira bisa dekat dengannya. "Dia rajin sekali mendekati keluarga saya", kenang Vira. Ini adalah faktor yang mengakibatkan Vira menaruh kepercayaan besar kepada sang pacar. Belum lagi, pria Turki ini sangat royal secara materi, "Waktu saya lihat dan menyukai sebuah cincin, dia langsung membelikannya, " ujar Vira. Bahkan, saat Vira berulang tahun, dia mentransfer uang puluhan juta ke rekening Vira sebagai hadiah.

Ajak Nikah Berujung Amarah

Singkat cerita, mereka memutuskan untuk menikah. Tiba-tiba, Vira teringat sesuatu, "Kalau saya dinikahi dia, berarti saya harus ikut ke Turki dan meninggalkan semua yang saya miliki di sini." Mendadak, hati Vira menjadi kurang sreg. "Apa benar dia suka dengan saya?" pikirVira. Tak ingin menyesal, Vira lalu memutuskan hubungan mereka secara baik-baik. Reaksi tak terduga muncul dari negeri seberang. Sang pacar marah tak karuan, sampai mengancam dan meneror tiada henti. Diburu amarah, lelaki itu mendatangi Vira ke Indonesia dan mengajaknya bertemu di hotel. Ancamannya tidak main-main, Vira harus mengembalikan semua pemberiannya yang bernilai ratusan juta rupiah, "Dia ingat detailnya, karena semua tercatat dengan baik di pembukuannya. " Kontan, Vira ketakutan. Bahkan, ketika teman-temannya menyuruhnya melapor kepolisi, dia menolak. "Saya malu dan takut," begitu alasan Vira. Alhasil, Vira pontang-panting mencari dana agar "utangnya" lunas. "Tabungan saya sampai habis, akhirnya terpaksa meminjam sana-sini", keluh Vira. Masalah belum usai, karena hingga sekarang Vira masih berutang kepada teman dan keluarganya. "Sungguh melelahkan," keluhnya. Kapokkah Vira main FB? "Enggak! Saya hanya lebih selektif memilih teman. Interaksi di FB hanya dengan teman-teman yang benar-benar dekat," tandasnya.

Kasus Vira, kata Doni, sebetulnya tak akan terjadi jika saja Vira tidak asal menerima undangan berteman. Apalagi kalau hanya untuk menambah jumlah teman. "Lihat dulu, berapa banyak mutual friends. Semakin sedikit, berarti tidak banyak teman yang mengenalnya. Ini berarti risikonya lebih besar. Tidak perlu sampai ribuan teman, karena wajarnya, setiap akaun FB memiliki 120 teman." *
Sekedar intermezzo:
Hati2 kalo masang foto di internet... bisa2 malu sendiri kayak yang di foto ini.... Cari tahu sendiri deh.. apa yang salah di foto ini. Test mata!
Ada yang tahu, apa masalahnya???

Just out for a walk

Wednesday, 18 Feb 2009
Faith called us that they have one young korean guest, Hayong, who is staying with them. They wanted to bring him for a night walk, and since both of us were free, so................ let's go!!
We brought him to Esplanade, Merlion Park and Cavenagh Bridge. Then we went to Bukit Timah for supper. We orderd Sate (mutton, chicken, beef), tissue prata, pataya, dan murtabak mutton. The drinks were: ice soursop (a bit sour but very refreshing), ice olive, redbean milk shake .. all very nice to try!
Believe it or not, this Indian eating place is just at the small lane, but the waitress using wireless HP 212 to take your orders. And when you want to pay, they just keyed-in yr table number and the bill will be printed out. Is really amazing for consider not even a restaurant and without aircond place.

These pictures all were taken using pocket camera, so please bear with the quality........
