In the year leading up to this talk, the web tool Twitter exploded in size (up 10x during 2008 alone). Co-founder Evan Williams reveals that many of the ideas driving that growth came from unexpected uses invented by the users themselves.

             In the modern digital world, you obviously lose your health in many ways. Thru mobile phones, computers, iPad, iPhones and many more. . . You are certainly surrounded by harmful radiations that might provide you all type of helps to make your health worse.  Especially your eyes are severely affected when you use your computers. In this digital world, we often spend almost 12 hours in computers. So there is huge percentage of probability to get your eyes affected. So please ensure that you keep your health optimized and organized. And here are few ways with which you can reduce the percentage of getting your eyes affected when you use your computers.

1. Customize Your Environment

                     You can adjust your environment when using digital devices to promote healthier eyes. If possible, use a large monitor or screen magnifier to reduce eye strain. Make sure your chair is close to your computer and you are sitting in a chair with adequate lower-back support. Position your chair so that you are comfortable.

Each person has a preference for his or her chair, so take some time to find what’s best for you. Making sure you’re comfortable before you start using a device will decrease the amount of stress you put on your eyes trying to find the best viewing angle.

2. Think About Lighting

                     For extended reading, change your monitor settings to a reflective lighting scheme. But don’t only think about your computer lighting.

Good room lighting isn’t just flattering. It’s also healthy for your eyes. So, keep bright lighting overhead to a minimum. Too much lighting overexposes and irritates the eyes, while too little causes the eyes to strain in order to see. Keep your desk lamp shining on your desk, not you. Try to keep window light off to the side, rather than in front or behind you. Use blinds and get a glare screen. Position the computer screen to reduce reflections from windows or overhead lights.

3. Adjust Your Reading Angle

                     Adjust the screen so you look at it slightly downward and are about 24 to 28 inches away. The center should be about 4 to 6 inches below your eyes. Also, make sure your screen is big enough and with just the right brightness and contrast so you’re not straining to see text or images clearly. Adjust the screen settings to where they are comfortable for you.

4. Magnify Text on Screen

                     For those with permanently reduced vision, magnifying the text and images on your device will help you avoid straining your eyes from squinting. Almost every device can be adjusted to display larger text, and for those with compromised vision, this can make reading much easier.

5. Blink and Take Frequent Breaks

                     Devices are set up for virtually nonstop work — but you aren’t a machine. You need to take breaks to recharge, and so do your eyes. Use the “20-20-20 rule.” It’s easy to remember: every 20 minutes, take a 20-second break, and look at something 20 feet away. And don’t forget to blink! Blinking washes your eyes in naturally therapeutic tears. If you regularly wear glasses, also make sure you have proper lenses for the computer.

Follow the above tips, and you can enjoy your slick new technology without worrying about consequences to your eye health, productivity and overall peace of mind.

Are you a Facebook user?
Beware of Malwares !!!

          If you are an active Facebook user, then there is a good chance that you have been exposed to malware at least once as you trolled through your friends’ news feeds. The recent statistics released by security firm BitDefender has claimed that approximately 20 percent of all news feeds on Facebook users led to malicious content, reports the BBC.

        The firm arrived at its figures after analysing data from 14,000 users who had installed its ‘Safego‘ security app. In a month since its launch, BitDefender also analyzed 17 million posts on the social network. By clicking on infected links in a news feed, the users risk having viruses installed on their computer. The majority of infections were associated with apps written by independent developers, which promised enticements and rewards to trick users into installing the malware, BitDefender said.

       These apps would then either install malware used for spying on users or to send messages containing adverts to the users’ contacts. Facebook has a thriving community of independent developers who have built apps for the social network. The vast majority enable users to tweak their Facebook pages, adding widgets, games or extra functions, such as delivering daily horoscope predictions.

Facebook said it already had steps in place to identify and remove malware-containing links. “Once we detect a phony message, we delete all instances of that message across the site,” the site said in a statement.

Crooks have targeted social networks, such as Facebook and Twitter, because of their vast number of users, said Rik Ferguson, a security researcher for anti-virus maker ‘Trend Micro‘.

“Because social networks are based on a community of people you trust, they’re an attractive target for malware writers,” he said.

           This is my hard time ever I had in my life. There were situations that troubled me a lot, but nothing was to this extent. Those things made me to be away from the world of international network for few 10 days. I was not able to update any of my online stuffs. This blog, my personal website, and my other social media pages like Twitter and Facebook, etc ….. And this have affected me in a lot of ways both offline and online. I was very sad to read the mail from IndiBlogger.in regarding my new rank. Obviously my rank has come down due to my online absence and because of my long gap of 10 days. I was very sad and worried when i opened my mail box to see 600+ UNREAD emails these days, some of which were very very important to be answered. I lost some huge things. I express my guiltiness to all my readers and subscribers regarding my absence this last 10 days. And definitely i will do compensate my absence in a better way.
