Your Personal Info might be at Risk.

Facebook has been listening to US users of its apps since 2014, but a recent report from The Independent claims that the social network is always listening. Kelli Burns, a communications professor at the University of South Florida, told the paper that she believes Facebook listens to all conversations people have while the app is open, to serve more relevant ads to those people by listening to what they’re talking about.The social network, however, tells Quartz that it only accesses a user’s microphone—assuming they’ve given it permission—under very specific circumstances, such as when they’re recording a video or asking it to listen to music on the television. Facebook also published a blog post today reassuring users that it doesn’t use audio recordings for ad-targeting purposes.

But if you want to revoke Facebook’s access to your microphone anyway, here’s what you do:

On iPhone (iOS 9)
Go to the Settings app

Scroll down to Facebook, tap it

Tap “Settings”

Turn off the slider for Microphone (slider should be grey instead of green)

On Android (Marshmallow)

Go to Settings

Swipe over to “Personal”

Tap “Privacy and safety”

Tap “App permissions”

Tap “Microphone”

Find Facebook, and turn the slider to OFF

Facebook made over $5 billion in sales last quarter, and the vast majority of its revenue comes from advertising. Even if it’s not listening to us, it reads what we post: Just yesterday, the company announced a new AI program that effectively helps the company to figure out exactly what users are saying in their posts, which Facebook could eventually use to show users more relevant ads.

You might be damaging your heart and kidneys.

Here is a blog which says why you might be damaging your heart and kidneys. The reason is hypertension.

About 20 per cent of India’s youth suffer from hypertension which makes them 40 percent more vulnerable to kidney damage and cardiac arrest, said doctors.

There is little understanding in the country of hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, which usually does not cause symptoms but gradually affects various body parts, they said.

“As many youngsters do not get to know that they are hypertensive they continue with their sedentary lifestyle,” said Gireesh Manwani, Senior Consultant (internal medicine), Saroj Super Speciality Hospital here.

“This slowly and steadily damages the kidneys and heart apart from giving rise to various other problems; it could even be fatal,” he said.

The medical system in India has so far proven unequal to the task of dealing with the youths falling victims to hypertension and other health complications triggered by it including brain haemorrhage, Manwani said.

About 95 per cent of the young people become hypertensive due to excess smoking, lack of proper sleep, drinking, polluted air and long working hours.

“Untreated hypertension damages the heart, kidneys and can lead to life-threatening complications like heart disease, stroke or kidney problems. It is called ‘the silent killer’ because symptoms generally appear only after the disease has caused damage to the vital organs,” said Manwani.

One in four people above 25 years in India has hypertension and it is increasing at an alarming pace, he said.

“Reducing salt intake, stopping tobacco use, reducing stress by slowing down, yoga or meditation and increasing physical activity are some of the key strategies to reduce high blood pressure,” added Manwani.

Zainab Naqvi, a doctor at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), said that over 50 per cent of the sufferers are not aware of that they have elevated blood pressure.

“Hypertension makes blood vessels in brain develop bulges (aneurysms) and weak spots due to high pressure, making them more likely to clog and burst. The increased pressure in blood vessels can also cause blood to leak out into the brain, causing stroke,” said Naqvi.

Naqvi urged youngsters to keep a tab on their blood pressure as only rarely does high blood pressure cause symptoms like headaches or giddiness.

Since you ain’t going at a wedding, *shaadi* we call it, try to keep it simple. You don’t need to wear all those accessories all at once just because bling is in. 

3) Who said that bling is only for dresses and stilettos?

  
Opt for bling shoes and go to a party, we promise you will be loved, and a shimmer crop top won’t hurt at all. 👐

4) Don’t forget that watch because you have been finding it fancy all this while.

  

Have a pretty watch but didn’t wear it much since it was all glittery and bling? It’s time to take it out and add a little elegance to your wrists with it. 

5) Street Style bling

  
Cool and stylish, comfortable too. How about opting for bling on streets? Hair accessories, shoes, tops, you will find it all.
