Changes in Facebook: new functions added

Well, facebook has been witnessing a lot of changes recently, the latest one being that directly below your profile picture, visitors have the option of calling you and messaging you. They are shown as per your privacy settings. There's another option called text, however it was unclickable for me(on mobile).

Recently Facebook introduced picture sharing as wall posts and before that new security arrangements were added to prevent misuse.

Aircel, vodafone, tata docomo and airtel offer out of the box ways to access Facebook

Facebook the most frequented site on the world wide web has caught
the attention of the big players in the Indian telecom industry.
Aircel, vodafone, tata docomo and Airtel have come up with novel
methods to make access to this social networking site even without
gprs. Previously I had discussed about two apps from which you can
access twitter and facebook, gmail, orkut via sms. These services are
somewhat similar but has little differences too.Aircel: Aircel might have been the first operator to milk in facebook

Now update your status with pictures in Facebook

Facebook is now all about setting new trends. Today 18th of may 2011

snap your fishing experience. Hanging outta with friends. Show it!

worldwide attention that its story was made into a book and then a
movie. Today there are over 600 million people registered on Facebook.
Its popularity has not only attracted revenue in billions but also
hackers and spammers in a mind boggling level. Today I have decided
to tell you about viruses in Facebook after seeing the status update
of my friend Tome who warned me about dangers in facebook.1. The spam messages usually come as messages from trusted friends
packaged in attractive covering. An example was "see the status update
of the girl which got her expelled from school". Such messages do come
from friends who have fallen for the bait. In the above case it leads

there are a few changes introduced there. Earlier whenever you sent a
message to anyone there was a standard e mail sort of format which
included 'TO' and 'SUBJECT' only. But now there is a box on the left
hand side which displays a small profile picture of your friend too.

clients like yahoo, reddif or google. Just check in to see the new
