with 4 comments

With so many people not-so-keen on the new Facebook Photo Viewer, it’s perhaps no surprise that there’s a now a way around it.

New Facebook Picture Viewer

To switch Facebook Photo Viewer back to classic view without that annoying black pop-up slideshow, All you have to do is to press the “F5” key (Windows) or “Ctrl+R” Key (Mac) on the the keyboard when viewing a photo in the new Photo Viewer layout. This will reload the page and you will be greeted with the classic Facebook Photo Viewer.

Alternatively, if you are using Google Chrome browser, there’s a handy-dandy extension that will sit and wait for you to visit Facebook photos and the spring into action. Now you’re no longer forced into the clunky view Zuckerberg and Co. seem to like so much.

Both of the above tips works flawlessly, and is surely a must-have for any frequent Facebook stalker!

Claim your facebook email address

with 3 comments

Facebook has begun rolling out email addresses to its users after a ‘by invite only’. The new Facebook Email service isn’t your traditional email service, as it has a social networking, immediate chat twist. The new email service helps speed up how users communicate with one another, through email.

The main features to the service includes seamless messaging, conversation history and a social inbox. Users can choose an email address, and with that email, they’re able to have instant inbox alerts, the same concept as Google Instant Search, with conversation history and a social inbox, using an algorithm to filter out all the messages you don’t want. The email service is currently optional to current users, but like the recent profile page updates, we expect that all users will eventually be migrated over.

To claim your email address, log in to Facebook, go to “messages” and you will see an upgrade option (may not apply to all countries yet).
