Companies that almost owns Facebook

Facebook, the largest social network in the world, is to file IPO papers after dodging the option of going public since its conception in 2004.

Starting out as The Facebook-- a site for Harvard’s students to connect, Facebook soon became well known and grew beyond the university, and with growth, it attracted investors and offers of acquisition. According to the business and financial research firm, PrivCo, these are the companies that once wanted to buy Facebook.

1. Friendster: Being the first social network in the world created in 2002, it was interested in making a purchase of Facebook in August 2004, for $10 million. Facebook rejected the deal, and Friendster later redesigned itself as a social gaming site. Another undisclosed financier company in New York also made an offer to buy Facebook the same year, for the same amount.

2. Washington Post Company: Most well-known for the newspaper it runs (which bears the same name), the American education and media company attempted to acquire Facebook a year after it was made universal, for $1.4 billion.

3. Viacom: Video & Audio Communications, the fourth largest media conglomerate company in the world made an offer to buy Facebook first in March 2005 for $75 million.

It then made two other offers, in February 2006 for $1.4 billion dollars, and in March of the same year for an undisclosed amount.


4. MySpace:   This social network, which was very popular around 2004, reportedly was in talks with Facebook in 2005. However, Facebook over took it by 2008, according to rankings on Alexa (which is a web information company owned by Amazon) rankings.

5. NBC Universal: This American Media and Entertainment Company was in talks with Facebook for acquisition of the social network, and like the Washington Post Company went on to settle for shares. However, the amount offered was not disclosed, and the status of the deal still is mentioned as being “in talks” on the

6. News Corporation: In January 2006, the News Corporation, owned by media tycoon Rupert Murdoch also tried to talk Facebook into acquisition for an unspecified amount.

7. Yahoo: This display-advertising giant, which recently was overtaken by Facebook tried to buy it for $1 billion first in June, brought down its offer to $850 million the next month(due to its drop in market value, according to a report on Mashable), and then unsuccessfully talked to the social network about $1.01 billion deal all in 2006.

 8. Microsoft: this software giant signed a large advertising deal with Facebook after its inability to buy Zuckerberg’s network for $15 billion in 2007.

9. Elevation Partners: This private equity firm which focuses on large-scale investments in media and technology businesses succeeded in getting around 1 percent of Facebook’s shares via a secondary market for $20 a share. It purchased $90 million worth shares in 2009.

Add Facebook Comments to Your Blogger's Blog

Facebook comment box is one of the useful tool for bloggers to increase conversations. So here in this post I will teach you how to add/integrate Facebook comment box to blogger in simple steps. Before getting into the process I recommend you to back up your template and previous comments in blogger wont be visible if you use Facebook commenting system.

Hide Existing Comments - The best way to start off is by hiding the comments made from the Blogger System. To do that, go to Settings > Posts and Comments and set the Show Comments option to Hide and Save the Settings

1. Create a Facebook Application

To use Facebook comments on your website, create a new comment application for your website on the Facebook Application page. This step is required, whether you add Facebook comments manually using a third-party plugin or with the official Facebook plugin.

Simply click on the “+ Create New App” button on the Facebook Application page, and enter a unique name for your application in the “App Display Name” field. The “App Namespace” field doesn’t have to be filled in for Facebook comments (it’s used with the Facebook Open Graph Protocol).

2. You will then be provided with an “App ID/API key” and an “App secret key.” Copy the App ID.

In the App Domain Field give (If you are using a custom domain give that) Give your Blog Address in the Site URL field under “Website” and Save The Changes. Copy the Application ID from the screen
3. Add Application and Moderator Meta Tags

Modify the below code with the application id copied in step 2.

<meta content='YOUR_FACEBOOK_APPLICATION_ID'   property='fb:app_id'/>

e.g. - <meta content='221595294600904'   property='fb:app_id'/>

Go to Template/Design > Edit HTML and paste the above code just below

<head><meta content='221595294600904'   property='fb:app_id'/>
You should create the Facebook Application and the above fb:app_id meta tag should be added to your Blog. Otherwise you won’t be able to manage/moderate your Comments from a single Place(you will have to go to posts one my one and moderate and that too is possible only if you have added the fb:admins open graph meta tag).

4. Add FB Comments - Now you have to add the Facebook Comment Form to your Blog Template. To do that Go to Template/Design > Edit HTML and click on the “Expand Widget Templates” check-box.

Find the following code in your template(Use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + F), and immediately below that paste the following code:

<div class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-3'>

If you can’t find this, then find

<p class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-3'>
If you cant find that as well, then find


Paste the following code just below the line that you just found out

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item">
<div id="fb-root"></div>
 var js, id = 'facebook-jssdk'; if (d.getElementById(id)) {return;}
 js = d.createElement('script'); = id; js.async = true;
 js.src = "//";
<fb:comments width='450' colorscheme='light' expr:title='data:post.title'
 expr:href='data:post.url' expr:xid=''/>

5.FB Namespace Declaration - Next you have to add the fb namespace to your template tag.Your template should have the specification for the fb tag that you have used. The following XML namespace declaration will take care of that. To declare the namespace, find

and change it to
<html xmlns:fb=""

(there is a space after the 2008/fbml” )The following screenshot will help you out.

Save the Template. This namespace declaration is necessary for all FBML widgets using the fb tag. So if you have already added the namespace declaration while adding some other FB plugin, then you can skip this.

You are Done !!!!

Managing Your Comments

When you are logged in to your Facebook account, the Facebook comment plugin will detect that you are the admin(it will detect you if you have added the fb:app_id or fb:admins meta tags). You will be able to manage the Settings and moderate the comments from there.

How to integrate Facebook Comments to Your Website?

Facebook Comments is a Social Plugin and you can use it by integrating in your website but Why?
Because most people are signed into Facebook when they browse the Web, enabling Facebook comments on your website is a great way to encourage people to leave comments. It also curbs spam. While many solutions purport to reduce spam comments on WordPress, most are either ineffective or frustrate visitors by blocking legitimate comments.

Feature-rich commenting solutions such as IntenseDebate and Disqus have benefits, of course, because they allow users to comment using Facebook and a number of other services; but before visitors can comment, they have to grant access to the application, an additional step that discourages some from commenting. By comparison, integrating Facebook comments directly enables visitors to comment with no fuss. Also, this commenting system allows users to comment by signing into Facebook, Yahoo, AOL or Hotmail.

The Benefits of Adding Comments via Facebook

I won’t push too hard on whether or not you actually need this feature on your own blog. Every site has their own set of priorities and best practices. But, for the sake of argument, let’s look at the pros of adding Facebook comments to your WordPress site.

Here is a list of features:
  • *Facebook notification for likes/replies to comments
  • *Comments can be posted to the Facebook wall with one click
  • *Replies to the comment on the wall will be shown on your site as well
  • *User authentication through Facebook or services like Yahoo!, AOL & Hotmail
  • *Grammar filter (adds punctuation, trims extra whitespace, fix common grammar mistakes etc.)
  • *Less trolling, more discussion

1. Create a Facebook Application

To use Facebook comments on your website, create a new comment application for your website on the Facebook Application page. This step is required, whether you add Facebook comments manually using a third-party plugin or with the official Facebook plugin.

Simply click on the “+ Create New App” button on the Facebook Application page, and enter a unique name for your application in the “App Display Name” field. The “App Namespace” field doesn’t have to be filled in for Facebook comments (it’s used with the Facebook Open Graph Protocol).

You will then be provided with an “App ID/API key” and an “App secret key.”
You don’t need to remember these numbers because the official Facebook comments plugin automatically inserts them into the code that you need to add to your website.

2. Add the Code to Your Website

Next, go back to the Facebook Comments plugin page and get the code for your website. The box allows you to change the URL on which comments will be placed, the number of comments to be shown, the width of the box and the color scheme (light or dark).
  • *href
  • The URL for this Comments plugin. News feed stories on Facebook will link to this URL.
  • *width
  • The width of the plugin in pixels. The minimum recommended width is 400 pixels.
  • *colorscheme
  • The color scheme for the plugin (either light or dark).
  • *num_posts
  • The number of comments to show by default. The default is 10, and the minimum is 1.
  • *mobile (beta)
  • Whether to show the mobile version. The default is false.
When you click on the “Get Code” button, a box will appear with your plugin code (choose the HTML5 option, because FBML is being deprecated). Make sure to select the application that you set up earlier for your comments so that the correct application ID is added to the code.

Paste the first piece of code on your Page Head <head> "First code" </head>
<div id="fb-root"></div>
<script>(function(d, s, id) {
  var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
  if (d.getElementById(id)) return;
  js = d.createElement(s); = id;
  js.src = "//";
  fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);
}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));</script>

Put the second line of code where you want to show the comments.

<div class="fb-comments" data-href="" data-num-posts="2" data-width="470"></div>

5 Things you should Know before Facebook Timeline Switch

Earlier I Posted that How to Enable your Facebook Timeline and Now Facebook Timeline is coming whether you like or not. In the next few weeks, your Facebook profile will be assimilated, giving you seven days to get your house in order before everyone can browse through your virtual history.

So before Activating Your Facebook Timeline, You must Know these 5 things that will helps you to understand Timeline more effective.

           " SEE ALSO : 10 most interesting Facebook Timeline Profile "

1. ‘Hide from Timeline’ Is Your Friend

Get ready to click “Hide from Timeline” a lot. You can find it under the “Edit or Remove” pencil icon that comes up when you hover your mouse over the top right corner of every Timeline post. Remember, it’s not just embarrassing photos that Timeline unearths — it’s every inappropriate status update you’ve ever posted and every asinine message your old college buddies have ever written on your wall at 3 a.m.

If you’ve had Facebook for a long time, you’re going to want to spend at least an hour combing through everything in your virtual past and hiding what you don’t want seen. You can also remove or hide posts through your “Activity Log,” which presents everything posted on your profile in a more compact, easy-to-digest form.

2. Smile! Your Album Covers Are Now Huge

Before, old photo albums hid in an archive — a collection of small thumbnails that only the most committed Facebook stalker would search through. Now it’s all front and center on your Timeline. That means that the photo of you drinking a giant novelty margarita in Las Vegas could now be displayed in unsettling clarity in one of Timeline’s two giant columns. If you want to keep your photo albums visible, but just want to switch the cover to something a little less embarrassing, click “Change Primary Photo” in the “Edit or Remove” menu.

3. The Internet Knows Where You Are

Photos and photo albums can now be tagged with locations, which are then displayed neatly on a map. That means if your friend geotags your album “Vacation Time,” all of a sudden instead of just photos from a cabin in the woods, everyone can tell that your August vacation took place near Lake Tahoe. Now you have to either untag yourself from every geotagged photo or have your friend manually remove the geotag from every photo you’re in. It’s a total pain. Welcome to Timeline.

4. Violation of Privacy? There’s an App for That

A lot of the apps out there for Timeline are pretty cool, but a few venture into TMI territory or, at the very least, turn your profile into a kind of corporate billboard. Think carefully before you let a third-party app have permission to automatically add activity to your Timeline. Do you really want everyone to know where and what you’re eating at all times or what products you’re buying online?

You can always manage your apps by clicking on “Account Settings” in the very top right pull-down menu on your profile. Then click “Apps,” and you’ll be presented with a list of all the apps that have access to your Timeline. Remove the ones you don’t like or, under “App activity privacy,” change who can and can’t see the content posted by that app.

Remember, you can always remove any individual embarrassing app revelations on your Timeline by clicking “Hide from Timeline.”

5. When in Doubt, ‘View As …’

On your Facebook Timeline, you should see a little gears icon on the far right. Click on it, and then select the “View As” option. This will let you view your profile as if you were a stranger or let you pick a specific person to see how he or she sees your profile. It’s a handy tool to use when trying to evaluate how well you’ve cleaned up your profile.

Show all your internet activities on Facebook Timeline with Open Graph Application

Now You can display your all web activities on your Facebook Timeline with the help of new Open Graph Application. It will trace all your activities with your permission.

Suppose you are watching a movie on Netflix then the activity will be shared with your friends like "Azziet watching Ocean's Eleven on Netflix"

"Facebook is introducing a set of brand new ‘Open Graph Applications’ from various developers that trace your activities outside Facebook and post it inside the site, only with your permission."

So if a user is watching a movie or reading a news article in the web, the activity will be shared with friends, say Azziet listened to Green Day on Spotify so that they can also join. The shared content will be posted in Timeline, a feature made available last year for creating visual record of a person’s activities over the years. All this will happen only with users opt-in to share from a site. Once they opt in, all their activities on that site will be shared.  

Facebook is planning to make the Timeline design a standard feature since Open Graph application work only with Timeline. Currently it is available as an opt-in feature. With Open graph and Timeline, a person’s whole life, in and out of Facebook can be viewed as a visual story line.

The feature which was announced at Facebook’s f8 conference last year is currently available for Spotify and Washington Post Social reader.  Facebook announced in last December that it will start approving Open Graph from other developers this January. It insisted developers in making 'actions' that are “simple, genuine and non-abusive” like “read, listen and watch.”

With lots of developers in the queue, this may be Facebook's last public guidance on the subject, before it files to go public in the first quarter of this year.

Facebook Chat is going better with this new face feature

Be honest: has Facebook chat ever been your favorite form of instant messaging? For many of us, Gtalk chat, Skype or even AIM are our preferred defaults. Now, a new gimmick is making us like Facebook’s built-in chat function a whole lot more. As demonstrated in the photo above, you can make the profile pictures of Facebook users and pages show up inside your chat windows.

Here’s how:
    1. Start chatting with someone (pretty simple).
    2. When you’d like to refer to a mutual friend or, say, Coca Cola, you dump their profile id (either their name or a string of numbers for those users who haven’t claimed their choice URL) into double brackets. So, that would be [[cocacola]] for a picture of Coke, [[zuck]] for Mark Zuckerberg and [[techimpulsion]] for the logo of where your learned about this new feature, and so on.
    3. Amaze everyone on Facebook chat with this cool new gimmick.

What do you think, will inserting your friend’s faces bring the end of the emoticon era, or will the Internet forever be dominated by the :-) face?
