Done

I don’t usually post personal stuff here, but I think that I am done as far as my offerings on this site, goes. Not going to tell anybody this is what I do anymore. I will just say, I’m a bum.

About the only site related thing I have going on, is with where my wife works. I built and maintain their website and facebook page. I don’t make any money at it, but she does get paid pretty well for this area. And, they treat her really well. So, it’s my way of saying thank you for taking care of her and us.

Anyway, what I am saying is, I’m not just done with robbysweb.com. I am also sick of facebook. I really don’t get much interaction when I post stuff anyway. I think most of my friends list are just people who excepted me to be nice. I think most of them think I am really weird and that I am a joke or something. Most probably have me unfollowed. Oh well, not trying to impress anybody anyway.

But, I am tired of seeing all the political rhetoric on there. Also tired of seeing people post stuff that they didn’t even check out before posting. They also open themselves up to get hacked with some of the stuff they share and like. It’s crazy! I tell people all the time, don’t believe everything you see posted on social media. Check it out 1st! They never learn!

Anyway! Maybe I will keep this site up, IDK. Though I don’t know why.

STOP the FAKE FACEBOOK HACK MESSAGE

So lately there has been this message invading facebook inboxes, with a warning that has gone extremely viral, telling people not to except someone by the name of Jayden K. Smith, as a friend. And to forward it to your contacts.

For one, you have to ask yourself, do you even know a Jayden K. Smith, why would you except them as a friend if not? Are they a friend of a friend maybe? If you get the friends request, did you even ask your friends if they even know who this person is, before you would accept the request? They may have unknowingly been hacked themselves.

2nd, if you forward something to all your contacts without checking it out 1st, you just set your account up and every account on that list, to be hacked! One of the oldest tricks in the hacker playbook from the days of windows 98 and XP, is to attack the contacts list via email! But see the hacker does not have access to your contacts list as easy anymore with some of the security updates (though still outdated) that have been implemented, so they have to depend on you to deploy it for them.

Lucky for you, it is a hoax and a test to show you how easily people are manipulated by fake news and propaganda, to cause chaos! But by forwarding this to your whole list, you have exposed a vulnerability! So if someone had actually attached a real threat to it, it would have spread like a wild fire!

Heck, now look at all the posts with the exposure of the hoax getting posted everywhere! I just did it myself! So, it worked in more ways than one!

BTW, CHANGE YOUR PASSWORDS AT LEAST ONCE A MONTH! DON’T USE RECOGNIZABLE WORDS OR DATES THAT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH YOU PERSONAL LIFE OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW! NO PETS! NOT EVEN FAVORITE BRANDS YOU USE! USE CAPS, NUMBERS AND SYMBOLS, ALL MIXED UP! IT MAY BE HARD TO REMEMBER BUT HARDER FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO HACK! GO THROUGH AND SECURE YOUR ACCOUNT BETTER. CLICK HERE FOR SOME SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE YOUR ACCOUNT MORE SECURE!

So, be forewarned for the next time! If you see posts or messages that have gone viral with some warning, check it out 1st before you spread it yourself! Takes only a few seconds to google it!

And as just like in the video above, don’t believe everything you see on the internet!

360 Facebook Photo – Facebook How To

How to Create A 360 Facebook Photo!

Have you seen photo posts by some of your friends, where you could move your phone around and get a panoramic view? Did you wondered how they did that? It’s called 360 Facebook photo.

Well, it wasn’t until recently that Facebook started allowing you to post these type photos. But, it’s easy enough to do with your ios or android device, if it offers the panoramic capture setting on the camera.

Here is how it works!

Take the shot of the view (slowly) moving around the view area until done. Then just upload it to your wall! Ta-da!!!

Below is a horribible (yes, I meant to spell it like that) example of a panoramic shot I took with my iphone. Click on the pic to see it on my RobbysWeb.com facebook page!

Save Facebook Posts, Without Sharing It

Did you know, you don’t have to share a post to “save” it on Facebook, anymore? You can just save the post itself, and easily find it again later!

I see this all the time on Facebook! People share a post and say they are only sharing it, so they can save it and find it later. Usually it’s a post with a recipe they want to try, or a handy tip, or DIY project.

A while back, Facebook made it possible to save those posts, so you can easily find it again. But a lot of people still don’t know about it or how to use it yet! It’s very simple to use, and this is how it works!

save facebook postsGo to the top right of the post you want to save. Click on the light gray arrow and choose save in the pop out box. If you don’t see it in the list, look for “more” at the bottom of the box, and click it to bring up more choices.

save a facebook postThen to find your saved posts, it will be listed under Saved in the menu to the left on Facebook or under Saved in the menu on the phone app.

I hope you find this tip as useful as I have. I have several recipes I have saved I want to try. Now I just need to get cooking! lol!

Photo Carousel on Your Facebook Page

How to Create a Custom Photo Carousel or Slideshow of Pics on Your Facebook Page!

Why would you want to create a photo carousel? Maybe you own a business website that shows pics of the products or services you offer. Well, you could post them on your facebook page, setup as a little slideshow with custom captions, as a neat way to advertise them to your followers or fans of your page.

Example:

I could see this as a neat way for a realtor to advertise a house or property that is listed online, in a facebook post. Or a way a car lot to advertise new or used cars, etc.

There are two ways to do it. You can go to your facebook page, and select photo/video above your empty status box, and then click on Create a Photo Carousel.

It will then open a box where you put in your link to your website. It will then load pics directly from the website into a row that you can navigate to the next one in the row, with a side arrow, like a slideshow viewer on a website.

Then under the row of pics, you will see each picture it loaded. You can then edit the arrangement there, click on the pics to remove them from the row, or upload others that are on your computer.

You can also edit the captions under the pics to say what you want, by click on the text that is there, and it will open up a spot to edit the text.

The other way to create a photo carousel, is to just type or copy and past the website link into the status box, hit the space bar after it, and let the website preview load with the pics and you can do pretty much the same thing as clicking on “Create a Photo Carousel” did before.

Either way, it works!

Here is a little video I made showing how I did it on my facebook page.

There you go! Hope it helps somebody!
