Ryan’s Incredible World Now With A Mobile Version

Ryan's Incredible World - Mobile VersionOne of the latest additions to my blog site is plugin that automatically generates a mobile version of the website for mobile phone browsers. The nice thing about it is that it doesn’t require pointing people to a different URL. My site is now able to automatically detect if you’re on a mobile phone and will show the version optimized for mobile phones.

The new mobile version presents my blog in an easier to read version for mobile phones. Instead of showing a zoomed out version of the main page with microscopic text when you first visit RyansIncredibleWorld.com, the new mobile version presents the ten most recent blog entries on the main page showing just the title, date of the blog entry, and the image that I lead the entry off with. All you have to do to read an entry is click on the title of the blog entry and it’ll take you to a mobile version. In order to keep the bandwidth per page down, the blog entries are broken down into multiple smaller pages of text to allow for easier downloading in smaller chunks of data. The blog entries will also allow you to check out the comments and even write your own comments. And there is even a search box so you can find your favorite entries. And there’s even an option to switch to the regular web version of the blog if you want to view it as the blog appears normally.

Get Your Facebook Vanity URL Now

FacebookAs of June 13, 2001 at 12:01 Eastern Time Zone (US East Coast) Facebook is allowing users the opportunity to pick their own username URL. You could essentially call it a vanity URL. So instead of a user name being a very unrelenting random series of numbers, you can actually get one in your own name or nickname. It makes it easier to share with others.

For example, my previous Facebook URL was (and technically still is) http://www.facebook.com/people/Ryan-Cameron/690149531. As you can see it’s a little relentless with the numbers, but it won’t connect to my page without the numbers.

Now that the vanity URLs are available, my new URL is http://www.facebook.com/RyanCameron. This is a definite improvement.

Thank you Facebook for finally getting with the program, as now my Facebook URL is now as easy to remember as my Twitter URL (http://www.twitter.com/RyanCCameron), my MySpace URL (http://www.myspace.com/roxabba), and of course, my blog URL (http://www.RyansIncredibleWorld.com).
