Quietly tucked away in the Facebook Developer wiki, as I noticed while browsing around today, was Facebook’s next step to world domination (at least, developer domination) — to offer data storage. Until the launch of this service, developers have been responsible for providing their own storage for the information pertaining to their Facebook applications, the most popular external option being Amazon’s S3 service.

At this stage it seems unclear as to what the precise data storage offering from Facebook is going to be. The Developer wiki indicates that the new service is in Beta, however, there are no indications around more specific details such as space limitations. Costs are also not revealed so one could assume that the data storage offered may be free for a while whilst the service is still in Beta.

It’s not at all surprising that Facebook have decided to start offering a data storage service. The desire to have ones own Facebook application has spread like wild fire since the social network opened up its development platform earlier this year. Providing a storage facility for would be application developers simply makes the list of barriers to getting their own app live a little shorter.

It will be interesting to watch as this new service is officially rolled out by Facebook and announcements are made that indicate their intentions with regards to pricing for this service. If they were to charge for data storage, one would assume that they would then be in direct competition with the likes of Amazon S3 .

But what if facebook take the opposite approach and decide to make data storage a free service? Will this further amplify the Facebook revolution?

I wait with bated breath for the official announcement from Facebook…

    You’ve probably seen the commercials on TV where the people are talking in a voice not their own about purchases they would never make. Sure It’s funny to see the old ladies laughing about motorcycles they purchased or the big manly man talking about getting his hair and makeup done, but if you ever become a victim of identity theft, you will know it is no laughing matter.
    Identity theft is a growing problem – one that affects between 250000 and 750000 people each year. One in 25 Americans will fall victim to it and if it happens to you, you might find yourself in the frustrating position of having to prove that you are … well .. you.ghd
    Two of the most prevalent identity theft scams are crimes that happen on the internet. These crimes called phishing and spoofing which make use of email to try to get personal information. Typically the email will “pretend” to be an institution that you may have an account with like a bank or investment company. Even eBay has criminals posing as it in emails to try to get your account information.
    Phishing fraud can be very sophisticated and the criminal will typically create a website that looks just like a site you usually use. This way you will think you are logging into your bank when you are really logging into a place where someone can then record and steal your username and password. Usually they get you to go to their site by sending an email claiming that there has been unauthorized activity on your account unauthorized and you must login or you will not be able to use your account. They provide a link in the email to the fake website. Paypal and Ebay are two institutions that Phishers often use to try to scam individuals out of password information.
    Spoofing fraud consists of an email that appears to come from someone you know. This is used to try to get you to open and then respond to the emailed solicitation, providing private information.
    Identity theft doesn’t just happen over the internet, however. Your personal information can be stolen from a phone call pretending to be an institution you do business with or even from bills or receipts you throw away in the trash.
    With so much identity theft going on these days, you must remain vigilant to protect yourself. Never give out personal information, passwords or account numbers unless you are 100% sure of who you are communicating with. You should also monitor your credit card statements every month and check your credit report once a year. If you find anything that looks out of place, call your credit company and take steps to make sure it is a valid charge. ghd Hair Straighteners
    If you do find that you have been a victim of identity theft, you should first off cancel all accounts and change all passwords that you have. Then report the theft to your credit card companies and other financial institutions. Finally, notify your local police and one of the big three reporting bureaus ghd IV styler TransUnion, Equifax or Experian, of the crime. Notifying one is sufficient as it will notify the other two for you.
