Ali Zafar performs Ghalib- A beautiful soft track

Posted by Knonie

Here’s a very famous Urdu ghazal written by Mirza Ghalib:
“Koi umeed bar nahi aati
Koi soorat nazar nahi aati”

This version is sung by the young Pakistani signer Ali Zafar, in a TV show “Dil se”. This track is also included in his latest Album titled “Jhoom”. It is composed by Yousaf Salah Uddin. This version is so soft and easy-listening. I’m sure you’ll love it.

Rahat Fateh Ali Khan has also performed this Ghazal in his typical Qawwali style, in the same composition.

Ever wonder what kittens are actually thinking?
Wonder no more. When an adorable 6-year-old inserts her own literal narrative to the photos in a children’s book titled Kittens, the result is quite hilarious.

More Free Alphabet Styles to decorate your Facebook profile

Posted by Knonie

Create an impact when someone visits your Facebook profile… Whether it’s your name, some greetings, or simply some word to describe you, it looks great. It’s so easy to do it in New Facebook Profile. You need to tag that word [up to 5 characters only] in a Facebook photo-album that contains those letters.

Below are the links of 3 Facebook Albums with different text styles. Use the one that suits your mood…

Visit Red Chalk Text Style Facebook-album

Facebook profile decorative namesVisit Electric Black Text Style Facebook-album

Facebook profile decorative names
Visit Blue-White Text Style Facebook-album

Facebook profile decorative names

Instructions:

  • Visit the Facebook album of your choice from the list above. Tag your word in reverse over. e.g. If you want to show “HELLO”, you should tag words in this order: O, L, L, E, H.
  • Since a single photo cannot be tagged twice, each character is present twice in the album, so you can use double letters too.
  • If you’re tagged in some other photo and see your word disturbed, you don’t necessarily need to untag yourself in new photo. To remove a tile, just move your mouse over the unwanted photo in your profile thumbnail images, and a cross [x] will appear. Use it to remove the newly tagged photo.

Stop automatic spam messages from your Facebook account – Simple and effective way

Posted by Knonie

The Problem

Since a month or so, we have started seeing a new kind of spam messages posted on Facebook. That appears to be posted by a person, but that person denies posting it. And then, these automatic messages kept on appearing after regular intervals, and the affected person and his contacts get annoyed. Since that post also contains a website URL, which means many other users might click that and it will keep on spreading, or whatever the motives of the spammer are. Even uninstalling the browser extensions and suspicious Facebook applications doesn’t fix it. Continue reading

Facebook Cartoons Display-Picture game is– Fake!

Posted by Knonie

On Thursday, 2nd December, 2010, I noticed a note as a Facebook status update of a friend from US, that goes like this:

LET’S KEEP THIS GOING! ♥ Change your FB profile picture to a cartoon from your childhood. The goal? To not see a human face on FB til Monday, December 6th. Join the fight against CHILD ABUSE. Copy & paste to your staus to invite your friends to do the same.

It appeared to me like a fun game someone has invented, and has tried to give it a touch of a Serious Cause, so that people will feel relieved after taking part in it…
And fortunately… it worked!!!

On next 3 days, that message started to increase gradually and rapidly, and as I usually notice, the Original statement seemed to be slightly altered. The most obvious amendment has the word “Child Abuse” changed into “Child Violence” because “Child Abuse” sounds quite an Adult word and some person thought about replacing it.

Here’s the screenshot of my account with non-cartoon faces blurred:
