5 Questions You Might Ask About Facebook Messages

Facebook-MessagesA couple of years back there was a craze of invitations for a web application. That was for Google Wave. But unfortunately the development was shut down as people dint find it interesting. It was one such application which was rumored to be as a mail replacement tool. Now a similar scenario is going on for New Facebook Messages invitations. Facebook has already started rolling out invitation to the users who requested for it. Anyone can request an invitation from Facebook but the million dollar question is when will you receive it? Because the invitations were not sent at once. I got a chance to test the New Facebook Messages. I can practically answer few of the questions that everyone has about New Facebook Messages

#1 – Is New Facebook Messages a mail service of Facebook?

Not exactly! Of course you get a mail id in format username@facebook.com (for eg., hellboundbloggers@facebook.com) and you can send mails to this id from any mail service and vice versa. There are two sections namely Friends and Others. The mails from the friends go to the Friends section and rest are dumped in Others section.

#2 – It sounds like a typical mail tool! What’s special?

The difference comes in the way the New Facebook Messages organizes these mails. It groups all the mail, chat and text messages conversations exchanged with a person. It arranges these messages Friends wise rather than the date they received.

#3 – Why don’t you call this as a mail application?

Because it doesn’t have some of the basic features of a mail service like Rick Text Formatting, Signature,POP3 Access. All these features might appear in future but for the moment it is just an additional feature.

#4 – Who will love this feature?

All those Facebook addicts who don’t want to leave the page even to send mails will loves this. The New Facebook Messages will increase the interaction between the existing users and will not bring in new users for this exclusive feature.

#5 – New Facebook Messages are more of text, does it support HTML?

No, you can’t compose HTML mails, but it does receive HTML mails. The mails are showed as text in the inbox but you get an option called Expand. On clicking which the complete HTML mail is displayed in classic Facebook Pop up.

Should I Move To A Dedicated Web Hosting?

This is yet another HBB Question and Answers section. I was asked by one of clients whether she should move to a dedicated hosting since she wants her site to be perfect!

But she was not able to differentiate between a shared hosting server and a dedicated hosting server.

For people who don’t know what a dedicated server/web host is,

A dedicated hosting service, dedicated server, or managed hosting service is a type of Internet hosting in which the client leases an entire server not shared with anyone. (via Wikipedia)

Dedicated Hosting


Ask Yourself Some Questions

Finally I asked her some questions regarding Dedicated Hosting Server and she changed her mind. The Questions are as follows :

#1 – Do you want to host several websites?

#2 – Do you want to install several custom applications?

#3 – Do you require high Bandwidth?

#4 – Do you need high-level security for your website?

#5 – Do you want to have your own server?

#6 – Last but not least, can you afford one?


What Makes Dedicated Hosting Special?

#1 – Storage : You can get almost unlimited disk space using dedicated hosting. Tһеу come wіtһ tһеіr οwח processors, hard drives, bandwidth capability аחԁ RAM.

#2 – Bandwidth : Dedicated server meets your bandwidth needs adequately since you don’t need to share resources with other websites. They reduce your needs to share hardware or software with other websites on the server.

#3 – Security : You are saved from intrusions caused by other sites. Using dedicated hosting, you will be in complete control of security. Anti Spam Appliance is used here which acts like a Strong Firewall.

#4 – Customization : You can customize it the way you like since you have the complete control. You can make changes and updates on software installed on your server since you have full root access to the dedicated web server.

In short, if you have money and your site receives heavy traffic, you can confidently consider a dedicated server or a Virtual Private Server (VPS).
