Imperfect profile - An incomplete or imperfect profile will tell your potential client that you are also unreliable as an entrepreneur. Make sure your profile online is complete and clean so that it will have a lasting impression on potential clients.

This American multinational rules the search engine world from the eccentric surroundings of their 70 offices spread across 40 countries. If you work at Google and you happen to notice a bubble machine blowing bubbles around the room, don't be surprised because this is just another day at the office. Catch some shut eye in one of the napping pods, chill out on one of the bean bags dotted around the building, blow off some steam on the crazy-golf course, challenge yourself on an arcade game, or escape the world of computer monitors by retreating to the music practice room. Of course, when you want to go downstairs, don't wait for the elevator, just hop on the slide and slide down to the next level.
Facebook make social networking magic happen from the fun-filled environments of their domestic and international offices. If you work for Facebook you can write a message on the giant 'wall', hang out in the video game room and enjoy unlimited sugar rushes with on-tap sweets and fizzy drinks. Sometimes Facebook theme their office spaces, like when they adorned one of their floors with Super Mario-inspired decorations.
This playful animation studio strives to be one of the most fun environments to work in. The fun-filled atmosphere at this film studio inspires its talented staff to continue creating entertaining and endearing blockbusters. If you start working for Pixar: you will become accustomed to walking passed giant monuments and art features depicting characters from the movies; you might like to theme your office front to look like the set of a Western movie; your office supplies might include a collection of toys; and you will have access to all you can eat cereal. After work head down to the soccer field, Olympic-sized swimming pool, volleyball court or basketball court to stay fit.
Skype has changed the way the world communicates. They manage their global network from their spacious surrounds in London, Stockholm and California. They have divided their open-plan office space into purposeful subsections. Park yourself on one of the vibrant soft-furnishings to chill out, on one of the functional desk chairs to focus, or one of the multi-coloured dining chairs to refuel.
This young information network has only been on the scene since 2006. Their San Francisco office space is simple but sleek. It promotes a creative and energetic culture. Staff can relax on the rocking chairs, admire a birds-eye (excuse the pun) view of the surrounding neighbourhood from the rooftop vegetable garden, take breaks in the games room and feast on free breakfast, lunch, dinner and beer. The office has a natural feel due to the wooden art pieces and multitude of plants. It would of course be even cooler if they had an aviary.

If you don’t know what Facebook Home is, you are not alone. It didn’t arrive with much fanfare and it won’t change much about how you interact with Facebook, and how Facebook interacts with you.
It’s a piece of Android software which synchronises Facebook to your phone. It adds a new home screen where you can receive notifications, messages, and new items on your news feed.
It’s a piece of smart software as it uses something called Cover Feed. Cover Feed integrates with your news feed and prioritises what your friends are saying and sharing, such as links and photos. Flicking through the stories is a matter of just double tapping the screen.
Mark Zuckerberg said he wanted Facebook Home to increase Facebook’s share of the market. He said 20 per cent of the time spent on a smartphone is spent browsing on Facebook. By increasing this share, Facebook could capture an entirely new platform, which may lead to new products in the future; and more than a few paid advertisements.
Wall Street reacted well to the announcement of this new software. The share price for Facebook went up by a whole three per cent.
Since launching two weeks ago on the Play Store, half a million people have downloaded the app. 14,000 people have also reviewed it on Play. A total of 7,500 reviews gave it only one star out of a possible five, whilst 2,300 people gave it five stars. The average rating is therefore 2.2 out of five.
The main complaint is about battery life. Zuckerberg’s app is handy at helping you to flick through stories, but the home screen sucks battery life out of the device. This, obviously, creates a major issue with people who browse Facebook regularly.
Another major concern is the fact Facebook seems to take over your smartphone. By becoming fully integrated with your device, it makes accessing non-Facebook content harder.
Privacy issues were also another concern. Users who allowed Facebook Home onto their smartphones allowed Facebook to look into all the personal details held on this device.
The deputy editor of Business Insider and enthusiastic Facebook investor Jim Edwards said people don’t want to dedicate all their devices to Facebook. He also said the interface where you have to navigate through Facebook to get to a web browser or Twitter was problematic.
CNet’s Seth Rosenblatt also said misplaced privacy settings could cause serious issues with users concerned about the security of their data.
And Matt Honan from Wired said it added very little to the experience of using Facebook. At the same time, he acknowledged it could convince more people to spend time on the social media website, if promoted correctly.
Most industry figures expect Facebook to revisit Facebook Home in the next year and make some major changes. They said many of the teething issues are just a matter of poor coding, and some tweaks could make it a much more attractive proposition to users.

A brilliant student, he excelled in academics and was a given that he would have a successful career in science and technology. His friends and family remember him to have always excelled in math and science and showed equal interest in classical studies of language and history. A close friend of his recollects that he was so well versed in Greek literature, he could recite some classic poems as well.
The first person to expose him to software development was his father; he taught him the basics of writing software programs and went on to get a tutor to hone his skills. His father nurtured his skills in software programming because he saw that his son had some extra special skills in the field. Mark in fact created some of his first software’s to be implemented in his dad’s dental practice, connecting all the computers to form a kind of networking platform. Growing up in a tech-savvy home where his father had the latest gadgets for his dental practice further helped Mark hone his skills.
Even during his college years he kept developing different kinds of software’s that helped students with different tasks. Most of his software’s were developed as a hobby and his roommates recollect the various experiences they had with him. Even the inspiration for Facebook is from their dorm register that had the same name. It had pictures and details of the students who lived there and this served as a stepping-stone to create one of the best social media platforms ever.
Even though he enrolled in Harvard, he dropped out once his career path as a software developer and entrepreneur was clearer. Facebook, which he created along with some of his friends, was instantly lapped up by one and all and this gave him more confidence to move in this career path and there was no looking back. He is one of the youngest billionaire software entrepreneurs and has steadily risen up the ladder.
Since most of his software’s were developed on previously existent ideas or with inputs from friends, he has had to face a lot of legal battles with people who often claim intellectual rights over his ideas. He has fought all of them with conviction and has had favorable settlements.
