Hello, i´ve received several emails in my hotmail/outlook account from a gmail account.

It seems like the person that sent me that emails, haven´t provide any name or surname, any data in the account.
I tried to find out a way to reverse search of gmail accounts, but nothing give me any results, as the account seems to be 2 month old, and the owner did nothing with it. The purpose of that account was for mailing me and only me.

I tried several methods of reverse search

- Facebook. Twitter, linkedin, etc
- Headers and ip trace (gmail dont give you senders ip)
- reverse search online services
- google search
- google+ search
- chrome extensions

nothing gives me anything for me to deduct the identity of the sender.

Any ideas guys?

Facebook "I like it". 500 million others too. And because no other website has so many people, almost all companies, campaigns and non-profit organizations try to reach as many of these people as possible with their messages via Facebook.

I have very little understanding of what I am doing inside of my facebook business page and of course, there is no FB support help desk. People are messaging me inside my business page but I am not getting alerts. It appears I have all alerts turned on but I do not see any alerts via email or sms.

I have a personal messenger app on my iphone. Is there a way to have a business version installed?

How do you turn on SMS alerts when people message me on my business page?

thank you

I am running Windows 10.  I rarely use Facebook, but occasionally do check it out and a couple of times I entered a comment.   I thought I had all the notification settings turned off, but whenever I log into Facebook I get the following message:

Facebook Message
Is there anyway to keep this from happening?

Thanks,

i am at my wits end with a computer problem on facebook and i dont know who to ask. i hope someone here can help me or at least tell me who to ask for help. fb and reddit were not helpful at all.

i have had this problem for almost a year but now its really an issue and i HOPE HOPE HOPE someone here has some idea for me to solve it.

when i try and change the 'seen as active' settings on fb desktop chat sidebar i click on the gear icon and i get the little pop up with the options but when i make a choice it wont work. i always get the little box pop up on my screen with the 3 different options to select from ie turn off active status for all, some, exceptions--- but no matter what combination, --ie addition or subtraction of names or choice of settings ,that i try ---when i click "okay" nothing happens the box just sits there but when i click cancel it will close again.

i've tried on 3 different browsers chrome safari and opera (i am macbook pro running mojave) i cleared my cache, cookies, content settings, autofill content, i tried command enter kind of stuff option enter just anything i could think of but nothing helps at all. i did go on the messenger app to see if i could toggle the options there but those specific set of options do not exist on the app just on desk top.

i have tried so many things and nothing works and i am stuck with a really unfortunate set up as far as who can/cant see me active.

i really really really want and need to change my settings …

Is it possible to add CSS styling to a facebook og:image that you would use for a Facebook share? It needs to be dynamic as well.

So, here is my tag in its current state and it just grabs the image for that particular product. But, it is just an image. I want to use CSS to put a coloured block in the top right corner and put some styled text in there for example.

 <meta property="og:image" content="<?php echo URLROOT . '/uploads/optimized/900x600_' . $data['img_name']; ?>" />

Is this possible?

What is a "Facebook Pixel" and how does it work?

I am pretty sure a developer created and configured my Facebook page with a "Facebook Pixel" but I am on my own now, and need to understand it better.

How do I find it if it does exist? What does it do exactly?

Is there an email address associated with it? If so, can I find what that email address is?

Secondly, I am trying to connect it to an EverWebinar, so when the Facebook user clicks the "Sign Up" button on my Facebook ad, the sign-up page pops up. Does this mean EverWebinar also needs to get that pixel?

What does a Facebook Pixel file look like?

Thanks

Can YouTube force a user registration before a viewing?

I have a 15 minute training session video that I will offer for free, and will use Facebook to advertise it. But I only hope to show it to people who have registered.

I created this video to help build my opt-in list, so after they register (name and email) I send the URL for the video.

I expect to need to hide the video as Unlisted, but wonder if YouTube can only show a video to users who reveal themselves tome in the form of a name and email address?

Thanks

Dear all,

Some students use face facebook ID to abuse others.  Is there a way to find that person>
I am a director of IT, who has access to all traffic coming in and going out through the campus.  My question is,  can I find the identity of an individual using face Facebook account at the university through the IP address of the device.  

I can see the facebook links accessed by each individual user, but I don't know how to catch someone using fake Facebook ID through our local IP address.

Dear Wizards, can you please suggest the Firewall and Wireless AP models (both commercial and opensource) which can satisfy:

- Login/logout page when access the Internet. EX: when access Facebook, you have to insert employee ID/password,....

- Log access history

- Stable, DDoS prevention,...

I don’t want someone I’m in contact to know what the last on line time was so perhaps messenger is the better option ....

Hello,
I'm a newbie in pfSense... I would like to block some URLs like Facebook using pfSense firewall. So i created an IP Table alias of Facebook autonomous system (using WHOIS utility and the CRON package to automat the update process).
But, after creating the rule that would block access to that website, it is still available from user IP address which has access rule under the block rule.
I don't know how i would debug this and make it work correctlry.
Thank you.

Need to "re-broadcast" the repaired video stream

I am in a major pickle. I finally got a live stream video solution to work (using OBS)  that removes the green screen. But I use WebinarJam for my webinars, and they do not support green screen. They only take the video direct from my Logitech C922.

What can I do?

I feel like I need a setting on OBS to "re-broadcast" the modified video stream. This means that WebinarJam would display the stream, as is, which is the way I want it to look.

Am I making any sense?

What is the purpose of using OBS to modify the live video stream if it can not be used?

WebinarJam also allows YouTube live and Facebook live, which may mean I can use OBS as an input into either of those.

Please let me know your thoughts on the options available to me.

Thanks.

Need Green Screen replacement from YouTube or Facebook

I use a service called WebinarJam, but they do not support Green Screen replacement. BUT, they provide three possible input source for the video...

Video Stream Options
As you can see, YourTube live and Facebook live are options.

Does this mean I can use either of these to insert my background image, then use the fixed stream with WebinarJam?

Their support says "WebinarJam does not support Green Screen replacement." But if I give then the video stream from YT or FB, they have no choice.

Am I right or wrong?

Thanks

My company redirects a user based on if they are logged into Facebook or not. But we are having cross browser issues and I need another set of eyes.

Firefox blocks the connection to Facebook if tracking protection is on, not sure if I can get around that. I just need a popup to open even if login status fails. I tried a delayed meta refresh and that didn't even work.

<script>
	  window.fbAsyncInit = function() {
	    FB.init({appId: '' . $fb_app_id . '', status: true, cookie: true, xfbml: true});
	    FB.getLoginStatus(function(f) {
		if (!f && f.status) return;
		       if (f.status == 'connected') {
				var url = "http://google.com";
				url = new URL(url);
				window.open(url, "_self");
		        } else if (f.status == 'not_authorized') {
				var url = "http://google.com";
				url = new URL(url);
				window.open(url, "_self");
		       } else {
				var url = "http://gmail.com";
				url = new URL(url);
				window.open(url, "_self");
		       }
		});
	  };
	  (function() {
	    var e = document.createElement('script'); e.async = true;
	    e.src = document.location.protocol +
	      '//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js';
	    document.getElementById('fb-root').appendChild(e);
	  }());

Hi Experts,

In order to add a  FaceBook  link to a website, I linked to https://www.facebook.com/abccompany/; for LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/in/abc/

Does anyone know how to do this for Wechat, or if it is possible? Truthfully I have never use Wechat, and guessing you need a user id. How can I instruct the client to get that ID?

I am running Windows 10 on a Lenovo P71 laptop.  Based on an expert recommendation some time ago I've been using Wondershare AllMyTube for downloading YouTube videos.  All of a sudden the program has stopped working, with almost all of the YouTube, Facebook, and Vimeo videos I try to download giving me the following message:

AllMyTube error
Can you recommend a dependable program for downloading internet videos?  I know that I won't be able to get everything, but something that can work most of the time (like the AllMyTube used to).  I don't mind paying for a program if it works.

Thanks,

Phil

I have this tag on my page rockypointfishingservices.com: <meta property="og:image:secure_url" content="https://www.rockypointfishingservices.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/20160312_161817.jpg" />, but if I add a link to rockypointfishingservices.com on Facebook, it's still showing the initial image from the slideshow.

What can I do to change the image Facebook shows? I've also got featured image changed to a different image, owner wants a photo of people with fish. I even changed the slideshow so the photo of people with fish is first, but the FB preview still shows this:

I am helping a friend who has young teenagers and who wants to restrict their Internet access to sociable hours so they don't sit in bed all night talking to their friends on Facebook etc.
We have a BT Router and a Ubiquiti access point.
The first plan was to use disable the wifi in the BT Router and set a schedule in the Ubiquiti - this worked well but for a short time until they discovered that a factory reset of the BT Router gave them back the 24x7 access they wanted.
With hindsight it would have been better if we'd removed the access codes written on the back of the router and kept those secure then even if they performed a factory reset they still wouldn't be able to log into the wifi. Too late now because I'm sure they've made a note of the BT codes.
Most other routers I can think of have a default username and password so it wouldn't take a teenager many minutes to look up the username and password ready for the next factory reset.
What is really needed is a Internet Provider control panel at which you can set access codes, wifi schedule etc.
How do others get round this or is my friend alone in trying to protect his children from Internet over-use?
