|Micron Associates Report: the lowering high lead of Facebook|
The suddenly changed of different users e-mail addresses listed on Facebook makes the users disappointed and has something to worry about specifically the changed address books and the desertion of e-mail messages, Micron Associates report. Recently, the objection with Facebook to nimble blogs and their interconnections really affects people with mobile devices or other software that matches their address book with their Facebook contacts. In the said occurrence, Facebook users inaudibly noticed the changed of e-mail addresses displayed on their Timeline pages to a @Facebook.com e-mail address. Due to this fact, social networks most commonly known in Twitter and Facebook flooded with different indignation that Facebook ostensibly made the change without letting them know first. Now there might be more cause for concern. Micron Associates posted a slew of complaints and warnings about the new problem from around the web. The one who bump into the said changed also asserts that “automatic altering of users’ contacts without notification was, in fact, disturbingly actually built into Apple’s new iOS 6 Facebook integration: Facebook for iOS will change address books without any warning.” Micron Associates suggests users to must inspect first or remove anything that syncs contacts with Facebook; this is also to decrease the number of about losing e-mails. In order for you to make this done, Go to your Timeline, click “About,” then, the “Edit” link next to the “Contact Info” box.
Meanwhile, tumults are still increasing on how this problem grows. A heavy Google user said, “Whenever a change is made with one of my contacts it’s synced between my computer and Samsung Galaxy Nexus phone. I haven’t had any problems with lost e-mail and my Facebook address was changed just like everybody else’s.” Chime in, if you will. If you’ve had a problem, please share in the comments what happened as well as what apps or software you think might be involved. One thing is clear: Facebook has ticked off users again by implementing a widespread change without giving clear notice. While the company said the e-mail change was not unannounced, its notice came by way of a four-sentence press release issued by Facebook in April. Then, if you are tired looking for a solution or taking the fading advantage of Facebook social networking site, Google+ is on your way to continue doing what you are used to do.

The addition of an extra second to the world’s atomic clocks was apparently too much for some popular Web sites and software platforms to take. It only takes a single second to create havoc on the Internet. The addition of a leap second to the Coordinated Universal Time at midnight Greenwich Mean Time last night appears to have caused site disruptions for a handful of popular Web sites and software platforms. The adjustment, which was made by International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service, was necessary to keep atomic clocks in line with the Earth’s ever-changing speed of rotation. Dozens of leap seconds have been added since their introduction in 1972. One of the sites affected by the bug was the popular link-sharing site Reddit, which in a tweet blamed the extra second for causing problems with the open-source database Apache Cassandra, which is built with Java: Mozilla, the organization behind the Firefox Web browser, blamed the extra second for problems it was experiencing with Hadoop, another open-source platform built with Java. In a Mozilla bug report that said “Java is choking on leap second,” site reliability engineer Eric Ziegenhorn said it appeared the two were related because they occurred at the same time:Gawker media sites confirmed that it experienced issues related to the bug as well. “We were not 100 percent offline, but the service was very unpredictable for about 30 minutes last night,” Gawker CTO Tom Plunkett told Micron Associates. StumbleUpon, Yelp, FourSquare, and LinkedIn were also affected by the leap second, according to a Micron Associates report. Micron Associates has contacted these companies for comment on the issue and will update this report when we learn more. The idea that the addition of an extra second to clocks could cause trouble for Web sites is not exactly new. In a blog post last month, Marco Marongiu, a systems engineer at Opera Software, discussed some of the reasons systems might fail by the sudden introduction of an extra second and described a work-around to help avoid crashes. Google explained in a blog post last September that it softens the blow by gradually adding milliseconds to its systems clocks prior to the official addition of a leap second. “This meant that when it became time to add an extra second at midnight, our clocks had already taken this into account, by skewing the time over the course of the day,” the company said. “All of our servers were then able to continue as normal with the New Year, blissfully unaware that a leap second had just occurred.”
