  • Keep your personal details secure

    Protect yourself from scams

    • Be alert to the fact that scams exist. When dealing with uninvited contacts from people or businesses, whether it's over the phone, by mail, email, in person or on a social networking site, always consider the possibility that the approach may be a scam. Remember, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.
    • Know who you're dealing with. If you've only ever met someone online or are unsure of the legitimacy of a business, take some time to do a bit more research. Do a Google image search on photos or search the internet for others who may have had dealings with them
    • Do not open suspicious texts, pop-up windows or emails – delete them: If unsure, verify the identity of the contact through an independent source such as a phone book or online search. Don't use the contact details provided in the message sent to you.
    • Keep your personal details secure. Put a lock on your mailbox and shred your bills and other important documents before throwing them out. Keep your passwords and pin numbers in a safe place. Be very careful about how much personal information you share on social media sites. Scammers can use your information and pictures to create a fake identity or to target you with a scam.

  • Type @[4:0] and Mark Zuckerberg Appears, Why?

    Type @[4:0] and Mark Zuckerberg Appears, Why?

    Many Facebook posts suggests that if you type @[4:0] in an FB post or comment, name of Mark Zuckerberg will appear. The truth of this lie is that it’s a bug and your FB account has not been hacked by anyone. Read more details in this article.

    You might have seen various posts on Facebook informing you that if you type @[4:0] in comment or in your Facebook status update, name of Mark Zuckerberg will appear. Many people feel that this is some kind of magic. Then there are folks who take gullible Facebook users for a ride. They tell Facebook users that if you type @[4:0] and Mark Zuckerberg‘s name appears — that means your Facebook account is safe, otherwise it has been hacked by someone. And innocent people begin to worry!

    Why does Mark Zuckerberg appears When You Type @[4:0] in FB?

    As you know, Mark Zuckerberg started Facebook in 2004 while studying at Harvard. Facebook has a facility of tagging other users in a post or comment. In order to tag someone we have to type that person's Facebook user name prefixed with the @ sign 

    But internally, Facebook actually tags a person by his/her Facebook account number. Mark Zuckerberg was the 4th person to create an account on Facebook. So, his account number is 4 and therefore when you @[4:0] , Mark Zuckerberg's name gets tagged.

    In fact, instead of 4 if you will type account number of anyone else, that person's or page's FB name will appear in comment or post. For example, @[488431207999432:0] points to the FB page of  GiTech101.com.

    Now, you might be wondering which were the first three accounts on Facebook?! Well, the first three accounts were probably test accounts and were deleted. So, effectively Mark's account is now the first account made on Facebook although its number is 4. The fifth account belongs to Mark's Harvard room-mate Chris Hughes and sixth account belongs to another room-mate Dustin Moskovitz.

    Why doesn't the Name Appear in Every Case?

    We guess Facebook is slowly removing this bug from their system. Those users whose account has been updated with new code, they will not see Mark Zuckerberg's name when they type @[4:0] and press enter. Those users whose account is yet to be updated, they will see the name.

    Is my Facebook Account Safe?

    This little bug has no potential of harming your Facebook account. Mark's name appears or not, please rest assured that it doesn't make any difference. However, you must always be alert about the safety of your Facebook account. Always use a strong password and do not share sensitive details with anyone else. Women and children must be particularly careful about how they use Facebook
