Remember when you created your Facebook account.  The home page said that its free and always will be. But that’s not true at all. I am sorry to bust  your bubble but in this world nothing is free. Services like Facebook Gmail are said to be free but they are not actually free. This website display ads and I am sure that you must have seen them and earn revenue through that. They display this ads by using your personal data. Personal data means I mean Facebook uses your personal data to show you ads.


  • Refreshing Windows Makes it Faster

Modern windows are smart enough that they don’t not need refreshing for the changes to occur. But they are use full for network drive. Refreshing windows will never make your wind faster infect it will add more work for computer.
