Hero Cat Saves Boy

I love animals.

But I love cats more…

A cat by the name of Tara, in Bakersfield, California, came to the rescue of a vicious dog attack.
The dog belonged to one of the neighbours randomly attacked a 4-year-old boy, Jeremy Triantafilo as he is playing on his bike in the driveway.

Jeremy had to have stiches, but the attack could have been far worse.

The neighbour’s dog had to be euthanised.

Dangers of accepting anyone as a friend on facebook

Dangers of allowing randoms to add you as a friend on facebook

Some people think it is cool to have as many `friends’ as they can to seem popular on social-media.

There are quite a few dangers to allowing randoms that you do not actually know in reality:

They can save all of your photos, date of birth, all the personal details that make you , you and create a new profile under a different name.

Many people that use a smart-phone to access facebook , use the Check-in feature to show where they are currently
(By default, that setting is set to `Public’). Even if you change that setting to `Friends only’ , unless you actually know the people you are allowing onto your facebook – there is quite a possibility that they can stalk your every movement …

3) FAKE PROFILES using fake genders to get you to add them

Here is an example of a FAKE PROFILE with the name Sana Naz. The profile uses a female name, a profile photo of a female and the profile reflects as a `her’ in the about section…


Just thought I would let you know that I did report that profile that tried to impersonate me on facebook.

This is the result.


Yes, it does seem to be a WIN for now … but I will be checking randomly to see if more profiles on socialmedia appear and take action accordingly.

Always be on the lookout if you too have been impersonated by some random somewhere in this world …

How to spot a FAKE PROFILE on facebook

Well ever since I lost my facebook profile (the one where I had 4000 people) , random profiles of me popped up either using my full name or some other name.

So I have decided to blog about how to spot a fake profile on facebook so that you can be aware of whether to accept that `new friend request’ from someone that you `think’ you may know.

1) Look for status updates,wall posts and comments.If the user hasn’t updated a status for quite a long time and hasn’t been involved in any wall posting or commenting of other statuses,it means that the profile is likely to be fake.

2) Look at the recent activities.If it is that the user has just been adding randomers and making new friends,and that there are no pages liked or groups joined,it suggests that the user is determined in just adding people and thus the profile is fake.

3) Look for photos in the profile.If there is only one photo of the individual in the whole profile it makes it quite clear that the account is fake.

4) Check the info.If found that there is no ideal links given regarding school or education institutions or workplace and that the user is looking for dating and interested in both men and women,it shows signs of fakeness.

5) Check the birthdate.
Birth dates like 1/1/XX…..or……31/12/XX are common between fake accounts as it is quite unique and easy to type in.

6) Look out for recent wall posts,if you see many people asking…’THANKS FOR THE ADD….DO I KNOW YOU’……and yet the posts remains unanswered…it is bound to be a fake one.

7) If you are quite certain about the profile’s fakeness,and want to be absolutely sure, try browsing google for some random profile pictues. Fake profile pictures are usually selected from google and while browsing through it,you might as well come upon the picture the user chose for the fake account.

8) Check out the friend list.
If found that maximum of the friends are of the opposite gender,it can be assumed that the profile is used either for fun or for random dating.

Lastly, if you do think that the profile is fake , 1) ignore the new friend request
2) report it immediately to facebook as `fake’ to get it shutdown

Adding people scenario on facebook

Some people like to only stay connected to those that they actually know in reality.

Others may want to meet new people and make new friendships or something else.

When you add someone (and you have been adding a few people) , you will get the following warning from facebook…

Even if you know the person, that person may not accept your friend request and you could get blocked.

So here are 2 links that you should keep track of:


Who I sent friend requests to ?

If the person that you have tried to add, has not accepted the friend request within 24 hours, delete the request and try another day. If it happens again, it means that the person does not want to accept your add for some reason and if you forgot to clear your request, you could get a block from adding people.

An add friend block means that you can not add people for that duration and you will not be able to randomly send messages to people that are not on your current facebook friend-list.

This is just one of the many durations that you could get blocked for …


Either the person did not want to be friends with me or they took their time in responding to my friend request and I was given a block.


Unable to send messages


When the duration of the block is finished, normal functionality like adding people or sending messages will resume.

Who sent you friend requests
