Take it with your Facebook Camera…. and and and.. Edit that shit…

Take it with your Facebook Camera, and while you are at it, edit that sh*t

Well isn’t Facebook a funny creature? Sometimes it likes to shout about its shiny new looks, features and profiles and other times it sneakily rolls out changes under the radar for us to either completely ignore or get unnecessarily angry about months later.

Recently there are a few new changes that could have a big impact on the way we use the social network. The two that caught my attention are the Facebook Camera App and the ability to edit comments.

Ever wish you could just edit a certain comment you made on someone’s EPIC photo, or one line you just blew on a Facebook Philosopher’s status? Or that mighty typographical error you made on your status Well, here comes your chance, only, there is a downside, which I will tell you in the end. Take a look at these screenshots. I’ve tried them for myself, and it certainly works. Before this, the only way to edit a comment was to delete it by clicking the little X, then re-enter the comment. Well, that might make you beat the record of being “first to comment” or something of that nature – for people who are into that, cos as soon as you have deleted, your comment rival takes the chance to appear first (hence winning that bloody battle for “first comment receives an ‘I JST CMNTED’ Tee” Well, for those who don’t know that the feature has been gradually rolling out since last week, check out the screenshots below, and save yourself some shame – in a way (remember there is a downside). The screenshots are from a set I took from one of my friend’s creative works. His name is Pontus, and he designs great. You can friend him here. He calls the artwork “Birdplane”. Check out his website!

In the picture above, you can see my comment (stroked with red digital marker) and my little baby sister :*. Click on the image for a clearer view. To edit a comment, just click on the little X that normally deletes your comment. You’ll notice it now has two drop downs – Edit and Delete. As you might be seeing, I have commented “lmao…this is funny…..well done bro..” To edit your comment, just click Edit – as I have done below. Click for a larger image.

Editing a comment

As seen above, I have highlighted the part of the comment I want to edit – I decide there is something more hilarious than funny!

In the screenshot above, I have changed the comment from funny, to hilarious. Click on it for a larger image.

#DRUMROLL…… Whats the downside, you ask?

The downside is that it shows Edited. Hence, your friends, and concerned stalkers would still be able to see that typo you made a while back, probably when you were a tad drunk, and didn’t know you had landed in Facebook City. Well, take care, and happy editing.

Another great feature is the Facebook Camera (which isn’t gonna be new for my tech savvy readers). Sorry to burst your bubble, you cannot take pictures with the Facebook Camera on your PC. Its an application, and we all know who they give all these cool cool applications to. That shiny fruit that always comes in white and glass. You got it right – Apple. iPhoners can download the app from the App Store, or request it to be sent to their mobile (If the links don’t work, redirect from here. It also gives you a stalk peek of which of your friends reached the app before you :p). It’s just like your oh-so-popular Instagram – which now has deeper Facebook integration, and a cleaner and user friendly web-look (NB: I don’t consider this Instagram for Web as most of the people on my twitter timeline are saying). You can upload sets of pictures at once like you could do on a regular PC, and tap to tag.

THE SEARCH FOR A LIFE PARTNER – By Alegzanda Assante

2 Comments

(At a table in a candle-lit rooftop restaurant overlooking the city-scape, a man and a woman sit gazing longingly into each other’s eyes. The following dialogue follows)
Man (taking her hand): Baby, I love you, and each time I look into your eyes, I see forever and a day; hold my hand honey, let’s walk this road together, be my wife, have my kids. Baby, would you please marry me?
Woman (stands up and lands a stinging slap on his face): I KNEW IT!!
Man (looking confused): Babe! You just slapped me! But why?
Woman: I just knew it!
Man: You knew what?
Woman: So it was you?
Man: Me? Jesus Christ! What did I do to you?
Woman (Pacing back and forth, pointing at the man): Ehn! So it was you all along?
Man(this time, he looks totally scared): Babe, you are scaring me!
Woman: Ha! Don’t tell me that. Even Pastor said he saw it!
Man: Pastor saw what?
Woman: Yes, pastor saw it! Even I (beating her chest) I saw it in my dreams! So it was you?
Man: Sweetie! are you alright? (he gets seriously confused and starts to smell the liquid in their bottle of wine)
Woman: Keep quiet and let me talk. I have waited more than two
decades, I have prayed, fasted, sowed all sorts of seeds, bought books and listened to tapes, even went out of my way to be nice to every male specie of marriage-able age! Every Saturday was a different mall, I went from the Accra to A&C mall, from Melcom Plus to Busy Internet, looking for you! I left my “chick-lit-flicks”, my Desperate Housewives and Tinsel for Sci-fi movies that I didn’t even understand, just so I could learn how to enjoy the things you love. I took up new hobbies, watching football and soring my thumbs at the Playstation. I went to Family Chapel, from Family Chapel, I went to Winners Chapel; from Winners Chapel , I went to Light house, from there I went ICGC, looking every where for you like I was looking for a needle in a haystack! (Turning around suddenly to face him) Now tell me, are you a needle? Did I have to buy a microscope or telescope to see you? I lost weight (grabbing the hems of her top), went from a size 14 to a size 10, so that when you see me you’d love what you see. I took a short course at Legon Business School, worked for all the Multi-nationals. I even opted to be seconded to Australia, I said to myself, “maybe he is white.” I came back empty handed! Then I left Accra, went to Kumasi, from Kumasi I went to Takoradi, then I went all the way to Sunyani, why? I didn’t even mind if you were a “nobody”. I joined Hi-five, from Hi-five to Facebook, then I went to twitter and started looking for you in my followers list, I even had a blog on which I ranted, posts without end, hoping you would show up! For where? I uploaded only my best pictures on Facebook, infact I took photo sessions to look my best, all for you o! My friends ended up match making me with every Tom, Dick and Harry, at first I didn’t like it, but as I grew older, I embraced it! I attended all the weddings, whether the invitation was direct or indirect! You know what they say about meeting your life partner at weddings? The next place I was hoping to check was the moon, before you crawled out, crawled out from the house directly next to mine! Ehen!! So it was you all this while? The neighbor I said hello to every morning? Were you trying to destroy my faith? You almost rendered my prayer life useless? What were you doing HIBERNATING in that house all this while? What were you waiting for? What sign where you looking for? Do you want to kill me before you reveal yourself?!!!

(man is speechless and confused, almost in tears, she then turns and sits with a mischievous smile on her face. Lowering her voice, she continued softly)

I have waited almost three decades for you, and all along you were next door. I have loved you in advance and missed you even more.
(She holds out her hand).
Now kindly be a gentleman, get down on your knees and put that shiny rock on my finger!!


N.B: (To all single ladies)
QUIT LOOKING IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES, LET “THE MAN” FIND YOU, IT’S HIS JOB!

(To all the single men)
PLEASE COME OUT OF HIDING, THE LADIES ARE WAITING, AND REMEMBER,
IT’S VERY “UNGENTLEMANLY” TO KEEP A LADY WAITING!

Why Women Hear God More Than Men Do

Dr. Tanya Luhrmann | Christianity Today | May 7, 2012

Women pray more than men do. The 2008 Pew U.S. Religious Landscape Survey found that two-thirds of all women surveyed pray daily, while less than half of all men surveyed do. The Pew survey was unusually large, accounting for over 35,000 Americans, but gender differences in prayer frequency have been found before (notably by Paloma and Gallup in 1991). In fact, the observation is so common that among evangelicals, we hear it repeated as a cliché.

Why do women pray more? Some argue it’s because women are more conservative, that they stick more to tradition, while others believe it’s because women feel more responsible for their families’ health and well…
