In modern days almost everyone uses Facebook account. Here we present a few Facebook tricks and tips that you may learn to make your life a little easier.
Identifying fake Facebook accounts: one of finest Facebook tricks
Each and everyday you may get friend requests from countless people on Facebook. Many of them run fake accounts. There are boys who use fake accounts in the guise of a girl and they use a girl’s image as the profile pic. Now you can identify whether certain girl’s Facebook account is real or fake. In order to do that first of all you need to save their profile pic in your device (computer or phone). Then you go to google.com. If you’re using a phone then request the desktop version of the site. When you’re on the site you’ll get to see a little ‘image’ link at the upper-right corner of the webpage, you need to click there.
When the google search-page for images appears like above, click on the camera icon, then upload the image that you want to check. It is highly likely that Google will be able to detect whose image this is. Thus you get to verify whether the person that sent you friend-request is real or fake on Facebook. So this is one of the most amazing Facebook tricks.
Start using ‘Swipe for Facebook’ app and get the good results
May be your phone has little RAM (it’s a budget-friendly phone) and you can not install heavy apps like Facebook and Messenger on your phone. Then you can use this particular app with the name ‘Swipe for Facebook’ and thus you get to use not only Facebook but also Messenger in a way. Also people who are suffering from battery problem and feel that their device’s battery is draining down very fast can use this app. Because you should know that Facebook and Messenger are two of the heaviest apps and they absorb your battery-power very fast. They also consume a lot of internet data compared to many other apps.
So using the ‘Swipe for Facebook’ app may save you from these hazards. The point is that if you’re suffering from low-battery problem constantly, then it’s high time you got rid of Facebook+Messenger apps from your device and installed the single ‘Swipe for Facebook’ app instead. By using this app you can also save a lot of your internet data/MB. Another plus-point of using this app is that this one has almost the same user-interface as Facebook and Messenger, although the app-size is as little as 3MB. The link for ‘Swipe for Facebook’ app is https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.happening.studios.swipeforfacebookfree&hl=en
Upon clicking this link if you get to see the message that ‘This app is not available in your country yet’, then make a google search on ‘Swipe for Facebook’. You will get the correct link within the first 2/3 search results. Don’t hesitate to download it even if you get the warning ‘not safe’. I believe you’re used to this type of warning, when you transfer apps from one device to another through shareit or bluetooth and attempt to install them.
Locate your friends
What we are now going to introduce you to is not one of Facebook tricks, it is rather a Facebook feature which you may not have been using. By adopting this you will be able to track your Facebook friends’ locations. This feature is ‘Nearby friends’ and in order to use this you need to turn on ‘Location services’ on your device.
By using this feature you get to find out your Facebook friends near to your current location and thus you can meet/catch up to them if you want to. You also get to know which friends of yours are traveling and where they’re traveling to. Also you can know the approximate location/area of your friends that live in some other city where you’re not. And if you want to meet them then press the ‘handshake’ icon next to someone’s profile icon in the ‘Nearby friends’ feature of your device. This will send notifications to them about your desire to meet them, then they get to decide whether they’re actually going to meet you or not. So as you can see although this is not exactly one of Facebook tricks, but nevertheless this can be a most useful feature to you once you start using it.
