Zorpia - Share Photos, Make Friends

My post today is about Zorpia. Right from the start I noticed that Zorpia has that friendly feeling to it, when browsing the site. Besides sharing photos and making friends, there are many other things to do on Zorpia. There are also Videos, Journals, Groups, Events, Gossip, Forums, Themes and so much more! You can be alerted of New Messages, Comments, Friends Activities, and other Responses, in Real-Time! No need to refresh your browser, because these alerts flash at the top of your page as soon as they happen. Some of the extra features that I like the most is Zorpia: Hot 'n' Verified, Match Up, the Zorpia Box, and Recenty Updated.

The Founder and CEO of Zorpia is Jeffrey Ng. He started his first entrepreneurial experience at the age 15. He previously worked for Expedia Inc. and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. He graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign with a double degree in Computer Engineering and Finance. He started building and developing Zorpia in 2002 in his own apartment and after one year Zorpia became a global influence that brought different people together. Currently he is leading the Zorpia team to put together their ideas and innovative thoughts in order to provide you the best and the most fun experience on Zorpia. Today, it is an international social site, which makes it easy to meet new people from around the world.

Zorpia has a goal of bringing people together from all over the world and allowing them to share their ideas and interests. Since then the Zorpia Team has worked ceaselessly to reach people's heart and provide the best features in order to maximize our users' satisfaction. The primary features are photo album, online journal, social networking, customized homepage, comment system and discussion forum. You're welcome to add me as a friend on Zorpia.

Their headquarters are located in Hong Kong, China. However, they are planning to open new branches in mainland China, US, UK, Australia and many other countries as they grow bigger.

I rate Zorpia a 10 on a scale of 1 to 10 on my Social Web Totem Pole.

MySpace - Beware of con artists

My post today is about all the scams and cons that take place on a daily basis on MySpace. Now just in case you just woke up from a 5 year coma, MySpace is the most popular social networking site on the web today. With over 100 million MySpace accounts, there are going to be plenty of con artists on the site too. Most of them just want your account information so they can take over your account which gives them access to all your other information, and all your friends or online contacts. How is this done?

There are 2 popular ways that these bad people can get this information from you. One of those ways requires them to know your email address that you used when you first opened an account with MySpace. So, please, do not show your email address on your profile, blog, bulletins, or give it to someone that you do not know, or trust. That goes the same for your Yahoo ID or any other ID that can easily be linked to an email address. Once they have your email address, then the only thing left is your password. Please make sure that your password is very strong. At least 8 digits long with at least one number and two capital letters. By following these simple guidelines, your account is a lot less likely to be hacked into.

The second popular way that these bad people can get this information from you is to trick you or con you into clicking on a link in a bulletin, blog post, or private message, or directly from their profile page. Please understand that clicking on the link will not give your information to them. But, if you are taken to (what appears to be) the MySpace homepage to sign back in again, then don't do it. You are not signed out, you don't need to sign back in again, and that is not the official MySpace homepage. Check the address bar on your browser to make sure you are on the official MySpace homepage. http://www.myspace.com/

Fubar - The 24 hour adult night club online

My post today is about Fubar, the 24 hour adult night club online. First brought to life way back in October of 1977 by a man named Mike Hedlund, this online night club is the place to see and be seen. Mike Hedlund goes by the screen name of babyjesus, and is still an active member of Fubar. Their office is located in Redwood City, California. The website is maintained by 10 great members that help keep Fubar running strong.

This very popular online night club is packed full of many cool things to do and share. Photos, videos, groups, blasts, bulletin boards, comments, private messaging, instant messaging, activity tracker, and so much more. Your profile is very customizable, and rated very high on my social web totem pole. There are so many things to do, you can easily lose track of time. I should know, because I've done it. Feel free to add me as a friend on Fubar. I'll gladly accept.

Fubar is free to join and experience, although it does have a premium membership option for unlocking more features, called a VIP membership. Although I am not a VIP on Fubar, I still enjoy many of the cool features that are still available for free members.

If you decide to visit or even join Fubar, you may see images, text, links, games and other mentions of cherries. Cherries!? Yes, cherries! This night club wasn't always called Fubar. In the beginning, it was called www.LostCherry.com and then Mike changed the name to www.CherryTap.com. And finally, a couple of years ago, Mike changed the name of his night club again, to www.Fubar.com. But it's still the same place. Still the same website. And now you know why you would see things on Fubar involving cherries.

If you're not already a member, then please consider joining.
It looks like Mike needs all the help he can get. WOW!

I rate Fubar a 9 on a scale of 1 to 10 on my Social Web Totem Pole.
