Advertisers have a crush on you

Crushed pomegranate

Although Facebook applications are the real value of this social networking platform, it’s still important to exercise caution as to what application you’re about to install.

Remember the “Secret Crush” application? This was a widget claiming to reveal who among your virtual friends is your secret admirer.

It seems that a web advertisement firm used it to lure users to install an adware on their computer and many did!

Not the first and certainly not the last… Be careful my friends :-p

The Mountain of Fire

Overshadowed by the clouds, the thin air frozen,
Whenever that happens, it's as if winter came,
Still there's a warm light shaping the world around me,
I'm good, and you?
