Beware of social networking sites

Utilizing social networking sites in right manner is most important these days. Unfortunately many users fail to be aware of the impending danger that is likely to happen by their own posts on these sites.

Letting the world know what they are upto is what most of the users post in social networking sites.Posts like "Off for the weekend", "Home Alone", "Will be back in 10 days" is like inviting burglars to ur house as reported by "The Digital Criminal report" conducted by a U.K based consulting firm. The survey has reported that 38 % of 2000 social networking users post their plans about vacations and their return dates on these sites. (If you are one among them stop that right away)

Whats much worse is many post their addresses and contact numbers in these sites as well which could be even more easier for strangers to track you down. Some even go the extent of posting about the new expensive things they happen to buy recently.

So beware of whats liable to happen because of the posts which you think sounds "cool". Could be pretty dangerous.

Not a penny not a penny less

Having read all the major books of Sidney Sheldon I tried "Not a penny more not a penny less" which is my first book of Jeffrey Archer and after reading the book i was  impressed.  When I read the first chapter of the book I jumped to a conclusion that its not the subject Id be interested in. But thanks to my friend who persuaded me to continue reading. And yes, he was right. Never judge a book by just reading the 1st chapter.

Harvey Metcalfe had to struggle a lot to make a living in his early days which obviously had got him money minded. Hired as a messenger boy in U.S Stock exchange he gets to know everything about stock exchange and when luck was on his way he grabbed it and made use of it. What next,, Harvey Metcalfe becomes a millionaire and had got everything he dreamed about. 

The way how he sends his shares go high by making four people buy his shares was amazing. And these four people come to know they were cheated by Harvey Metcalfe and they sort a way out to get their money back. Well this is not an easy job as they were going to face a man who escaped law many times. 

The total money lost by all the four were $1 million and they decide to get their money from Harvey Metcalfe "not a penny more not a penny less". Whats more interesting is Harvey being a cunning business man is never aware that he is being cheated by four people around. I could not keep the book down until I finished. 

So if you are a person who will not miss reading anything good, have a go at this.. Its worth reading..
