Missing updates in Dashboard? – Its due to Google Friend Connect ! #RIP #GFC

Bloggers see the effects of losing Google friend connect. In November the Senior Vice President of Operations for Google Urs Holze announced Google were spring cleaning, part of this cleaning involved terminating Google Friend Connect for non-blogger sites, such as WordPress. This retirement went into effect on the 1st of March and bloggers that did nothing about it are now losing many page views or unique visits from people that were only viewing from Google friend connect. Google tried to encourage people to transfer subscribers to Google+ and to create Google+ page but we heard that many didn't want to have to create more work for themselves and some don't even like Google+ However, it might be something to think about as the future is clear, with the G+ button having a big impact on SEO and it all being connected with Google profiles, pages and especially business pages, I don't think its something you want to miss out on as a blogger.

I don't like Facebook's news ticker, how do I remove it? However, many users are asking how to get rid of, or remove ticker because a) Its annoying or b) its is slowing their internet down. There are a few spam messages going around where people are asking you to copy and paste it too your friends, but it doesn't actually work, I'm told. Edit: see below for solution! The upshot of that seems to be that Facebook doesn't allow you remover the News Ticker - [...]

With so much malicious software around at the moment that is getting better at tricking us into opening a page, an email or clicking at link,  we all need to make sure that we are protecting ourselves and our computers, laptops and tablets the best we can. This can be expensive but it doesn't have to be, there are many  free programs around to download which work perfectly well but you have to be careful where you download them from as some of the links on the net can contain nasties themselves, (so I've included some good links for you).  Then there are the evil pop ups that you have a virus and to use their scanner, normally what  happens is you use it and they tell you you have to pay to remove it. Now you are infected and also if you put your card details in, they have your information as well. Free software, utilities and tools to protect your system from malware or to find the infection or virus or worm, and to help you remove it. [...]
