Parents and Kids… watch.
Today was probably the most disappointing day of my life as a father and I don’t know how to correct the situation. Since I can’t seem to make any headway with my daughter on Facebook, I chose instead to remedy the problem permanently.

The video in question has already gone viral and has amassed over 2 million views since it was posted. These days many kids take to Facebook for ranting against their family or school teachers. However, is such a punishment justified? Would you go ahead and punish your children likewise?

Facebook Comment Box Moderation Is Lousy for Administrators

I have been using Comments Box on this blogs for over a week now to test out and increase interaction on the site. For starters, I did like the amount of interaction from Facebook users. However, there are quite a few problems with Facebook Comments when it comes to moderation.

Facebook Comment Moderation Broken

First off, the website where you can moderate Facebook comments ( is down most of the time (or whenever I try to access it). It gets frustrating because it is the only way you can see new comments and trash spam or hide comments from users.

On the other hand, Facebook comments moderation in itself does not work most of the time and administrators have problems when marking a comment as spam or banning a user.

Overall, I feel that Facebook comments do provide a lot of ease for their users to quickly comment on a website. However, there is a lot of work to be done when it comes to administrating those comments. I will continue working with Facebook comments for some more time and see if there is any improvement with it before I decide to remove it for good.

What has been your experience while using Facebook comments? Have you had problems with moderating comments and administrating them? I am looking for some alternatives so please feel to suggest them (No Disqus Please).

Facebook Provides Easy Way to Hide Live Ticker

Last year, introduced a new feature on the social networking site called "Live Ticker" which displayed a live activity stream of your Facebook friends. Facebook Ticker was hated by a lot of users and also led to a few Facebook scams including the one where users were duped into believing that they could stop posts from showing in Facebook Ticker.

In the past, we wrote about different ways to hide the Facebook Live Ticker. However, Facebook now allows users to hide the Live Ticker easily with the recent changes they have made.


If you are looking to hide the Facebook Ticker in your Facebook feed, you can now simply click the UP arrow key on the Ticker to hide the Facebook Ticker from view. Once that is done, you will no longer see the Ticker on your feed. If you want to see the Live Ticker again, you just have to click on the down arrow key and it will show up again.

However, one must note that hiding the Ticker will only hide it from view. There is no way to stop your posts from showing up on all your friends profile so don’t forget to stay away from Facebook scams which tell you that you can stop your posts from showing up in the Live Ticker.

Facebook Activity Feed Showing "Invalid Action Type" Errors

Facebook Activity Feed Invalid Action Type Error

Website owners who have been using the "Activity Feed" social plugin from Facebook might notice that the feed is no longer showing up and instead an error box with the message "Invalid action type" has taken it’s place. This problem is occurring on all websites and seems to be a big problem on Facebook’s side.

Facebook Social Plugin Error

The error is also apparent on Facebook’s Social Plugin code generator for all websites as seen in the screenshot above. Facebook has faced several problems in the past where the site has gone down for hours due to database problems and DNS issues among other things. However, this look like the first time that their social plugins have had issues.

If you are a webmaster who uses the Facebook Activity Feed on your website, you might see the above error. However, having the widget in question on your site does not affect loading time. We have contacted Facebook to check why this problem is occurring and will update the post when we get a response.

After the Victoria’s Secret Valentine  Day Gift Card another new scam is brewing up on where scammers are pretending to give away free Vitoria’s Secret gift card for a limited time.

Victoria's Secret Gift Card Scam

The new scam is similar to the other Gift Card scams which have been doing the rounds of Facebook lately and asks users to complete a survey before they can get hold of the Victoria’s Secret Gift Card. The scammers ask the users to post the page to their profile and also like the Facebook page using the Facebook like button.

OMG! My Profile Has Been Viewed 97 Times Just Today Facebook Scam

Just a few days after the Profile Watcher scam erupted on Facebook another new similar scam app is now spreading rapidly on . The scam is similar to the earlier See Who Has Viewed Your Profile Event Spam and Who Checked Your Facebook Profile Scam fools users into believing that they can track who has viewed their Facebook profiles.

Facebook Who's Watching Profile App Scam

Profile viewed scams are becoming very common these days since people are concerned as to who are viewing their profiles. Potential Employees also run background checks on users which include checking their social networking profile which makes users more jittery and gullible to know such kind of information.

Facebook Profile Viewer Scam

However, the app which is called "Stalker viewer" is basically a scam since Facebook does not share such information with others and it is difficult for apps to find out who is visiting your Facebook profile.

The "Stalker Viewer" app looks like just any other Facebook app and will ask for your permissions before taking you to a page where they will ask you to complete a survey before you can see "Who’s viewing your Facebook Profile". However, once you complete the survey it will only make money for the scammers and not show you the information you are looking for.

As a precautionary measure, always check which applications you use and remove unwanted or suspicious ones.

You Seen What This Person is Saying About You Terrible Things Twitter Phishing Attack

We have been seeing a lot of Facebook Scams these days, however, it looks like is also being attacked by users with a lot of scam messages. Unlike most of the Twitter scam messages spread through direct messages and are usually phishing attacks.

Twitter DM Phising Message

A new direct message scam is spreading on Twitter right now with a direct message:

You seen what this person is saying about you? [link] terrible things..

The above message comes from someone you might know and follow on Twitter and looks pretty real. If  you click on the URL accompanied in the message, you will be taken to a webpage which is designed to look like Twitter and asked you enter your username and password.


Please DO NOT enter you username and password since the scammers will then gain access to your account username and password. If you do enter your username and password into the phishing page, the scammers will then redirect you to Twitter and ask permission to install an app which will then send out the rogue message as a direct message to all your followers and continue spreading the phishing attack.

Most modern browsers like and will detect the URL as a phishing website so you might be better off upgrading to a secure browser.

To avoid phishing attacks, always look at the URL to see whether you are entering your password on the site itself and not some masked URL which is made to look like the original site. Additionally, you should also periodically check the apps you have given access to in your Twitter account and remove unwanted apps. Learn how to remove apps or revoke app permissions in Twitter.
