    "The house absolutely glows with a new-found beauty. Tom is a genius in his ability to coordinate the work done to my home. In between many raindrops, he managed to get the painting done in a few days and have Mike, the roofer, and his crew tear off and replace the shingles and wood in two days time. And even though I'm on the west side, Tom was able to catch me before I left for work around 8:00 a.m. Your company has really boosted the resale value of my house. I plan to engage you again for interior work in the coming years. Thank you for a job well done!"

  • 12 Things You Didn’t Know Facebook Could Do

    [caption id="attachment_5001" align="alignleft" width="294"]Social Media Facebook[/caption]

    Facebook has been getting a lot of competition from sites like LinkedIn and Google+. But since Facebook is a pioneer in social media, it is no surprise that they're constantly improving their site to gain more followers (if that's possible). Paul Boutin of The New York Times discusses further:

    The designers and engineers who build Facebook are anything but complacent about their success. They face a constant threat from the career-centric LinkedIn, specialized upstarts like Instagram’s mobile photo network and now Google’s fast-growing Google+, an attempt to improve on Facebook’s core design that has picked up tens of millions of users in its first few weeks.

    So Facebook has been adding features to make the reigning social network more useful and convenient.

    As the number of features grows, though, so does a corresponding problem: Most of Facebook’s 750 million users don’t know these features exist. Some don’t know how to find them, some don’t go hunting for them in Facebook’s ever-growing interface of controls and many don’t even think of them in the first place. A few minutes of exploration can uncover functions that make Facebook not just an addiction but a pleasure to use.

    EDIT LINK NAMES AND DESCRIPTIONS If you want to post a link to your Facebook page but don’t like the title or description that Facebook automatically pulls from the linked page, you can change it. Before you click the Share button, click on the title or description in your pending post. They will change into editing boxes, like those to rename a file on your computer desktop. When you’re done editing, press Enter to save your changes.

    TAG FRIENDS IN UPDATES AND COMMENTS If you type the name of a Facebook friend while editing a status update or a comment, Facebook will automatically create a link to the friend’s page. In fact, it will pop up a list of possible completions for names like “John.” Once you’ve entered a name, you can backspace over it to erase the last name for informality’s sake, or click in the middle to edit the first, turning “Kenneth Smith” into “Kenneth” or “Smith.” Sorry, you can only shorten names — you can’t edit “Kenneth Smith” into “Snuggles.”

    POST A PLAYABLE MP3 If you paste a link that ends in “.mp3” into a status update, Facebook will create a player in the middle of the update that lets other users play the music file without having to click through to its host site.

    MAKE A PHOTO YOUR PROFILE PICTURE Any photo on Facebook that has been tagged with your name includes an extra blue link at the lower-left corner of its page labeled Make Profile Picture. Click that, and Facebook pops up an editing page in which you can crop the photo to be just right for your profile.
