500,000 Hits!

My fitness blog has officially crossed the 500,000 hit mark!  I checked statcounter a little earlier today and saw it. 

Some of this traffic, of course, would not be considered quality (traffic from image searches, etc).  Regardless, it isn't bad for a blog that's under two years old.

Facebook Font

A couple of days ago I noticed a significantly smaller Facebook font.  I've also noticed several complaints about it.  I understand this--it really makes for a less pleasant user experience.  I wonder if the powers that be are listening.  I wonder if they will make some much-needed adjustments.

Or maybe we are just too addicted and will keep using it no matter how small the font is.

Facebook Backup Scam

Earlier today I received a message in Facebook that went something like this:

Upon receiving this message you must reply by clicking the small Reply button next to the date and time to write that you have completely read and also completely understood this message. Click the small Reply button found right next to the date and time and then write "read and understood". You should also make a copy of this message or print it so that you can re-read it later.

Facebook may encounter some database problems soon. If a system crash occurs this might cause you to lose ALL your friends. In order to prevent this from happening we ask you to make a back-up. So you can restore your friends afterwards when you need it. If you have less then 50 friends this is isn't necessary because facebook can automatically restore your friends. But if you have over 50 friends you should make a back-up. If you have more then 250 friends (or even more) you should make a backup immediately. Please do it now otherwise it may be too late.

To make a back-up follow these instructions:
 This looks to me like some kind of phishing scam--I just erased the messages as soon as I saw them.  Call me crazy, but I sincerely doubt every profile on facebook is about to crash.
