Off Topic : How to stop getting posts from a group in Facebook news feed

:: How to stop getting posts from a group in Facebook news feed ::

I have seen many of us doesn't want the Facebook group's post to be seen in their news feed. What makes them wonder is, even after selecting the "Notifications - Off / Friend's posts", they still receives almost all posts in their news feed. Turning off notifications in group's settings will only stop the  notifications about the group's post and not on the news feed. There is a way to solve it and  it worked well for me. I feel its better to make a post and share it with you all. 

Step 1 : 

Click on the drop down like button on top right of the Group's feed on your wall

Step 2 :

Click on "I don't want to see this"

Step 3 : 

Click on "Hide all posts from ABC Group" 

Thats it !!!

Add Blood Group to our Profile - A Request to facebook

Add Blood Group to our Profile - A Request to facebook : 

It is a constant endeavour that people scouts for a particular blood group and couldn't get it on time. Everyone is trying all the possibilities of having it. Be it a facebook wall post, SMS, posting it in groups etc., But the problem is not the unavailability of the blood, but the problem is in finding the person. 

There may be the instance where we have a friend with the same blood group as we want, But since we don't know about his blood group and his inaccessibility to our Posts & messages, we couldn't get the right thing at the right time. 

It could be better if facebook can add another option titled "Blood Group" which can be visible to public & friends and they can contact us instantly during emergency. 

In facebook, we have an option to edit our profile name and there we have an option called atlernate name. I thought that adding our blood group as alternate name or editing our profile name would help. But unfortunately, facebook doesn't allow the special characters & numbers to be used in these fields. 

I just felt that it would be better to have our blood group along with our profile name. Like for eg, my blood group is A1 +ve.. I would like to have my profile name as "Deepak Raghuraman (A1+)". It will make it easier for those who are in search of a particular blood. Also, adding it to the profile name will help those who are in need without even going through the entire profile.

I know, it is easier said than done. But this one would really help us and expecting all your view in this regard. Also, let me know if there any other option in facebook whereby we can update our blood group.

Thanks for reading my post, share it and make a better tomorrow.

Completing 1 year of Blogging. Thank you all !!!!

Completing 1 year of Blogging. Thank you all !!!!

It has been a year since I started blogging.  I can say it as the 1st Birthday to Get Inspired Blog. I started blogging on 14th July 2012 

How does it Start : 

I always like to read and know about the success stories of the entrepreneurs, which includes the Rags to Riches stories.  I used to post these success stories as a wall post in my facebook profile.  Later one of my friend suggested to use blog for posting these stories and it just gave birth to the Get Inspired Blog :)

Since then it has been a wonderful journey for me.  Have made some 40 odd posts here which includes various genres like Success Stories, Social Awareness, Finance, Personal etc.,

Motivation : 

This point is debatable.  Of late, I came to know that the readership & followers were the driving force behind updating the blog on a frequent basis. My blog was a bit idle for several months. I used to update it very rarely. It is worth to mention here that, The Chennai Bloggers Club - A group in Facebook plays a vital role in motivating and re-invented the blogging skills in me and it made me a active blogger. Have got few followers and many frequent readers. Especially the feedbacks and discussion about the posts has motivated me the high time. It has made me update the blog frequently and also made me to add a new blog NAMMA AREA.  I have got the contact of lot of good people in this one year because of this blogging. Got some good friends too.

A Personal Note : 

I must thank you all for the constant motivation, I am sure you keep motivating me :) As I was happy to get the contacts of many good people, I was also a bit sad to lose few good people's contact. As I thank all my friends in this occasion, I should also say sorry to those whom I have made feel bad. An open apology and also a whole hearted thanks to you all. 

If you have any feedbacks or suggestions, feel free to write to me at innovativedeepak87@gmail.com. 

Let us make a wonderful tomorrow. 

With Cheers,

Deepak Raghuraman
