Spamming gets innovative.

Spammers Hakckers keep finding new and innovative ways to reach out to the masses. Since facebook has been immensely popular social network, it becomes vert attractive media for spammers. It also seems to be very easy to convince users to click a few buttons and steal all your data. They also post links on your friend's walls to attract more visitors.

Found a couple of my innocent friends posting these materials again and again.
How do you safeguard youself?
  • Dont click on any link that you do not know or is suspicious.
  • If any application asks you to approve/join/like do not do it unless you know the website/link
  • They will have very attractive images/text - Eg. Osama bin Laden's uncensored pictures. If its too good to be true, it may not be safe link.

What do they get by spreading these kinds of links?
Any of the following
  • Viral marketing - Website may be trying to make some product/website popular
  • Stealing your details - They may be collecting your name, geographic location phone etc to sell it further.
  • Stealing your id and passwords .
So please safeguard our accounts and share the good messages/links/videos with your friends. Do waste your and your friend's time and energy by clicking the wrong links.
Happy socializing.

Any day now someone will discover a means of projecting matter from one location to another without having to traverse the space in between. It will undoubtedly involve quantum dynamics or an extension thereof by another name. It may be called “teleportation” for distances on Earth and “colindation” (following a progression of developments) for projections of multimillion-ton masses to another planet light-years across the universe. We may become able to mine distant planets for resources that have been depleted on Earth. One consequence will be that the speed of light will no longer constrain communications over long distances because without traversing the distance in between, a hard copy can “arrive” virtually the instant it is sent.

As has been said many times before, “the problem that can not be solved does not exist.” While that slogan has frequently been misused by governments, politicians, and religious fanatics to deny the existence of a problem to which they know no solution, scientists always took it to mean that a solution exists—but only remains to be discovered. Many are trying at this moment to duplicate molecular level phenomena at macro scales (and vice versa). Someday soon someone will succeed—sooner than we think. Always remember that the exponential growth of new knowledge is happening at an exponential rate of increase. The automobile, telephone, computer, Internet, etc., created new industries that no one anticipated. The next might be teleportation.

The transmutation that the discovery of teleportation will impose on the existing structure of society will be monumental and unprecedented. Everything from people to rain clouds, to industrial machinery, to beef on the hoof will suddenly be able to be inexpensively transferred to any desired location on Earth. This will have a tremendously benevolent effect on the world’s economies as the movement of goods becomes suddenly cheaper and people become able to visit faraway tourist attractions with zero travel time. The progressive, development, production, and marketing of small personal “TP Transceivers” will create a new bubble of economic excess never before experienced. Early users of teleportation will find a new freedom hitherto unknown. They will no longer be bound by geography. A woman might work in Los Angeles by day and be home with her family in Indianapolis at night. Men might accept promotions to jobs in London, meet their wives for dinner in Rio and join the children at home in San Francisco for the night.
