How To Mention/ Tag People On Facebook Mobile Status or Comments



          Just like Twitter, Facebook introduced mentioning or tagging people in posts around 2010, you could actually Mention people, Groups, Pages and Events, simply by Typing the @ sign and adding name of who or what you're tagging next to it.

Benefits Or Purpose of Facebook Mentioning

  • To attract the Person's attention
  • When there's need to describe several cases/location where the person was present
  • To Praise that person, (good examples are during birthdays)
  • To praise and expose Pages/groups etc, imagine how cool it would feel when some great persons on facebook mention your Business Page to their friends on Facebook.
The slight glitch about this great tool was that it only worked for Computer users who use the Web version of the Social network,  leaving Mobile users behind.
With the rapid growth of mobile users who have over populated  PC users, the need to do more on Facebook from our cell phones can no longer be ignored. Mentioning On Facebook is now made Possible, and easy too.
Few related sites have shared How you can go about it, but believe me, this should be the Easiest and Comprehensive you can learn to do by yourself.
I did my test run using the most used Mobile browser, Opera Mini 4  and it worked just fine.

How To Mention, Tag Friends on Facebook Mobile Using Opera mini

1. Get the Profile ID of who you want to mention, this could be a person, page, group etc. 
(i) If the person doesn't have a Username: Simply go to the person's profile, open the URL bar and copy the ID number
 e.g   www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=0000987654321

(ii) If the person has a Username: go to graph.facebook.com/*the Username* 
This would provide you with the User ID and other unique details, whether it's a Page, group or whatever.
Like my ID can be found here graph.facebook.com/ifediri
So all you need do is copy the ID in the first line, and proceed to the second step.

2.  Get the Person's Full Name, copy out the name of the person you want to mention exactly the way it is written in their profile (include space where necessary). 
Now use the format below, type without space
@[Profile ID:Name of the Person]

  
For example:  @[0000987654321:Edi The Tweakster]

N.B: careful when doing this, omitting something when spelling can cause error, hence mentioning may not work.
Below are few screenshots of how I mentioned myself in my own status

You can have some fun trying it out yourself, if it worked for you, don't forget to say thanks by Sharing with friends.

Ways On How Web Hosting Affects SEO


       Businesses who knew better than to simply put up a website, have it planned by skilled web designers, and put as much interesting and valuable content as possible know that SEO is essential in reaching out to as many potential online customers as possible. While SEO are done in different forms, one factor that can affect a website’s searchability in search engines is their web host

   Finding a good and reliable web host can increase one’s exposure in Google and other search engines. Their influence on the website’s SEO can be direct or indirect and it is important for website owners to know these factors in order to be aware if their web host is still doing them good by improving their SEO or otherwise.




Here are the ways that a web host can improve the website’s SEO:
Having a dedicated IP Address For a website to be search engine optimized, it has to have at least one dedicated IP address. Having this will let the search engines know that the website is noteworthy and it is serious about handling huge traffic and answering to the public’s inquiries. Although getting dedicated IP addresses are more expensive than availing of shared web hosting services, the former can certainly provide better advantages when it comes to SEO.


Having continuous hosting uptime A website may be successful in driving traffic but if internet users are always clicking on the website that is always down, Google and other search engines will deem that website as unreliable and will be given the lower spots in their search results.

● Having better server speed Search engines also recognizes a reliable website worthy of a good spot in their search results through the number of seconds that takes the web pages to load. Also, websites having pages that takes a lot of time to load will only drive away visitors which will decrease traffic and eventually, be deemed by search engines as unpopular. A reliable web host can increase the loading time of a website significantly.


Being served by a reputable web provider - If a business wants to make the most out of their web host, they should choose one that has a good reputation since this will increase their searchability in search engines. Google and other search engines do not just look at the website alone in ranking them. They also check out who they are affiliated with and one of these is the website’s provider.


● Having a provider that has the same location as the target audience – One way of getting a website higher click-through rate and good SEO is by getting a provider that has the same physical location as the target audience.


Conclusion

Deciding to get a reliable and reputable web host for your website and email addresses is a good move not just to have an efficient website that will be able to accommodate huge traffic to the website but also, to have a good ranking in search engines’ results. Availing the services of the leading web hosts in the market can be more expensive but the return should be more profits on the part of the website’s owner, brought by having a good SEO.

HTML5 Past, Present and Future [Infographics]

HTML 5 aims to improve upon its predecessors by enhancing the language and support while still being compatible and understandable by current media devices and web browsers. The infographic explains the compatibility with the various, existing web browsers.

Chrome and Safari possess a higher compatibility rating than that of Opera and Internet Explorer – which both have a fairly low rating based on the analysis and research data. Research also indicates that HTML5’s trajectory will continue to grow to incredible heights in the very near future.

Research indicates that by 2016, HTML5 usage with mobile browsers will surge to 2.1 billion. And by this year alone, the use of HTML5 development has increased to 78%.

All about Prov files & How to Create Prov Files Offline on Nokia using s40provg8

Your mobile network may sometimes be unable to provide you with settings for your phones via SMS, even if they do, their settings only contain Access Points and Username through which you can can browse with the network.
 If you use a Nokia s40 phone, doing a personal configuration, and adding Proxy Address/I.P address may not also do the trick especially if you would need that configuration Setting to power the applications that connect to the internet, like Opera mini, UC browser and all others, so the way out of getting your Nokia configuration settings is to Provide yourself with one by making a prov file.

You may ask, What is a Prov file?

Here's a quick description of what a prov file is.
Prov. files in this post is an Access Point containing Proxy Address/I.P in its configuration setting, it was specifically built for Nokia s40 phones, the file extension always end with .prov.

How Does Prov Files Work?

To keep it very brief, all you need do after creating a provisioning file (.prov), is to send them to your Nokia via bluetooth, you receive Configuration settings as if it came from your network, save, and activate it.

There are so many sites that now provide you with this technology, such sites are called Prov site creators, so you can go ahead and create one yourself:
* Xmlprov.com   (Recommended)
* prov.ahmsta.com (which provides settings basically for Networks in my country)

The major problem is any of these sites may not be available when you need  them most, xmlprov.com is a good example, the site is always "under construction" *LOL*
This is my purpose of writing this post as I will introduce us to s40provg8, an Application that will help us create prov files offline in our Nokia Series 40 mobile phones, without the use of internet connection or websites.
It works for both Nokia s40 and s60 (symbian) phones, if you don't know how to extract the Zip contents so you can Install the app, s40 users are advised to see this post .
When you Launch the App, it prompts you with queries to fill in for the prov file (configuration Settings) to be made. All you do is fill them:
Example: Name: any name of your choice as this will be name of prov you are making
others include port:
IP
APN
username
password
homepage
As soon as you are done, it will ask Allow application s40provg8 to read user data? Press Yes


Your prov is successfully created and Saved into the root folder of  your E:// drive (only  when Memory card is inserted,else it goes to your C:// drive which is the  phone's memory directory)
