It started the buzz in Twitter too.

Update 1: It is back now (17:57 GMT 01 Nov 2009).

Update 2: Again it was down for a while (19:35 GMT 01 Nov 2009).

Is it due to the planned maintenance or due to technical errors?

Login to Facebook using your username instead of email

October 18th, 2009 1 comment

Facebook_logo Most of you normally login to your Facebook account by typing your email id that was used while registration.

Everyone like to use a username instead of their email addresses.

Sometime in June 2009, Facebook introduced Vanity URLs to all users.

Vanity URL is one of the nice to have feature for every user. Vanity URL allows you to set a nice username (facebook.com/iamunique) in the URL instead of having a alphanumeric characters (facebook.com/?profile=abc123).

You can create your own username using this link – www.facebook.com/username

Take time and create a suitable username for your account. This is a one-off task and it can’t be changed forever.

Once you create the Facebook username, you can use the username to login to facebook instead of your email id.

However you are still will be able to login to Facebook using your email address.

Random YouTube tips

August 23rd, 2009 Comments off

YouTube Watching YouTube videos are always fun. Here are some random tips that will give you a better YouTube experience.

You could see the HQ button on the  player that toggles the video quality between Normal and High quality.

Youtube-High-Quality-Videos

Login to YouTube, which is pre-requisite for this tip, and go select Account->Playback Setup. You will get the following page.

Youtube-Playback-Settings

Based on the your Internet speed you can default the video playback quality to either Normal or High. If you are not sure of your Internet speed, then you can leave this with YouTube to select the playback quality.

In the same page, you can also find the option to turn-of annotations permanently for all videos. I would personally suggest to turnoff annotations, because most of the annotations in YouTube videos are useless; also distract the video playback.

Select your preferences and click on Save Changes.

Enjoy watching YouTube videos!
