The All-seeing eye of Facebook

all_seeing_eye

For the past 4 weeks, I have been spending 4 hours of my Sunday and Monday evenings at a program to encourage active citizenship.

The initial hype of nearly 20+ participants boiled down to 12 (of whom I already knew 3 previously) with 4 ideas to encourage active citizenship.

The topic of this post however lies not with the concept, but… the all seeing eye.

The eye of Facebook to be exact.

No sooner did I start attending this course, that the people in the course started popping up on my “Suggested Friends” list on Facebook, despite not interacting with them on any social media except,,, Whatsapp…

A dim bulb brightens…

Now do you see Alice, how far down the rabbit hole goes?

Coincidence? I think not.

Why Whatsapp Calling will not work for you now

A lot of people are wondering why the whatsapp calling function is not working for them.

At first, it was thought to be a region thing, a ban on VoIP. However, tis not the case in the desert paradise of Kuwait.

So what gives? Why is it not working?

A quick google search shows that in order to get whatsapp calling activated on your phone, you need to receive a call from someone with whatsapp call function enabled.

You also needed to have the latest version of whatsapp installed on your phone.

In addition, you should be Android, as iOS is giving the calling functionality a spot of trouble.

However, even if you accomplish all of the above, you will still NOT get whatsapp calling to work.

Why?

Here is the official reason:

I contacted Whatsapp with screenshots and the likes, their response was the function is in Beta and they are not adding any more users currently.

So, lets wait and see.

Quick fix for the WhatsApp Error : Status unavailable

People are buzzing with fear at the recent appearance of ‘status not available’ errors when attempting to share files with WhatsApp contacts, prompting said people to believe that WhatsApp has had the last straw and, according to the following SPAM HOAX MSG, will be a paid service.

Whatsapp is shutting down on 28th jan   Message from Jim Balsamic (CEO of Whatsapp) we have had an over usage of user names on whatsapp Messenger. We are requesting all users to forward this message to their entire contact list. If you do not forward this message, we will take it as your account is invalid and it will be deleted within the next 48 hours. Please DO NOT ignore this message or whatsapp will no longer recognise your activation. If you wish to re-activate your account after it has been deleted, a charge of 25.00 will be added to your monthly bill. We are also aware of the issue involving the pictures updates not showing. We are working diligently at fixing this problem and it will be up and running as soon as possible. Thank you for your cooperation from the Whatsapp team..:)

FINAL WARNING!
If your WhatsApp status is error:status unavailable then you are not frequent user and by 5:00pm C.A.T WhatsApp will start charging you. To become a frequent user send this message to 10 people who receive it.

If people thought for a second, they’d note that this is a gross violation of privacy, having the ability to judge your account status based on a msg you receive?

Rest assured, WhatsApp remains free. The trick is to simply refresh the list of contacts.

Go to settings / chat preferences / email chat history, then your entire contact list will appear, click menu & hit refresh.

Voila.
