Todays survey

Share

Radio continues to attract a large spectrum of listeners in Peninsular Malaysia, with nine in 10 people aged 10 years and above tuning in every week, according to the latest Radio Audience Measurement (RAM) Malaysia study by The Nielsen Company. The study is based on individual quarter hour diaries completed by a representative sample of 3,000 individuals in Peninsular Malaysia.

According to the latest Nielsen survey, radio attracts 12 percent (1.97 million) of people in any given 15 minute time slot throughout the day and an average radio listener tunes in for 22 hours a week.

Among the Malay channels, ERA maintains its top position, reaching 24.3 percent of people or 3.98 million listeners. Now occupying second position, SINAR registers an increase in reach to hit 23.3 percent (3.82 million) in the most recent study, hotfm takes third position with 3.78 million in weekly reach.

Leading the way among Chinese stations are MY FM and 988, with their 13.2 percent and 9.0 percent reach. They are trailed by aifm at 3.5 percent one FM, the newest Chinese channel broadcasted over the airwaves, debuts with 279,000 weekly listeners.

hitz.fm maintains the top spot among English channels by reaching out to 1.29 million (7.8 percent), while Fly moves up the rankings to occupy second position, with an increase in weekly listeners to 800,000. Trailing behind is LiteFM (467,000), MIX fm (437,000), and TraXXfm (106,000).

While the Tamil channel, minnalfm enjoys a weekly listenership of 617,000, the two bi-lingual channels THR Raaga/THR Gegar and red104.9 drew 3.18 million (19.4 percent) and 153,000 (0.9 percent) weekly listeners respectively. >> READ MORE

Don't upload if doubtful

Share

No such thing as "deleted" on the Internet

It's always fun to write about research that you can actually try out for yourself.

Try this: Take a photo and upload it to Facebook, then after a day or so, note what the URL to the picture is (the actual photo, not the page on which the photo resides), and then delete it. Come back a month later and see if the link works. Chances are: It will.

Facebook isn't alone here. Researchers at Cambridge University (so you know this is legit, people!) have found that nearly half of the social networking sites don't immediately delete pictures when a user requests they be removed. In general, photo-centric websites like Flickr were found to be better at quickly removing deleted photos upon request.

Why do "deleted" photos stick around so long? The problem relates to the way data is stored on large websites: While your personal computer only keeps one copy of a file, large-scale services like Facebook rely on what are called content delivery networks to manage data and distribution. It's a complex system wherein data is copied to multiple intermediate devices, usually to speed up access to files when millions of people are trying to access the service simultaneously. (Yahoo! Tech is served by dozens of servers, for example.) But because changes aren't reflected across the CDN immediately, ghost copies of files tend to linger for days or weeks.

In the case of Facebook, the company says data may hang around until the URL in question is reused, which is usually "after a short period of time." Though obviously that time can vary considerably.

Of course, once a photo escapes from the walled garden of a social network like Facebook, the chances of deleting it permanently fall even further. Google's caching system is remarkably efficient at archiving copies of web content, long after it's removed from the web. Anyone who's ever used Google Image Search can likely tell you a story about clicking on a thumbnail image, only to find that the image has been deleted from the website in question -- yet the thumbnail remains on Google for months. And then there are services like the Wayback Machine, which copy entire websites for posterity, archiving data and pictures forever.

The lesson: Those drunken party photos you don't want people to see? Simply don't upload them to the web, ever, because trying to delete them after you sober up is a tough proposition.

When media talk...

I got this video from my friend's blog (thanks to Ridy). It's a short film made by based on true story. As you can see this video really touch my heart to watch it again and again. Further more, there is some people who in poor condition and live in hunger like this where other are laughing and enjoy their life. The question is, are they being negated by their government of their society or other factor that force them to live like that...Watch for yourself...

Under construction

Share

My blog is still under construction. I still not satisfied with the current template and there are many things I have to do with the layout. You know, I'm not expert in HTML code and that why I have to do some homework. I browse to all blogs as an example where I can use it as my reference to make my blog look as I wanted. For this time being, this is what I want but in future I want to make it look better than this. There many thing for me to explore inside the blogger.com and learning the HTML code. I hope that once day I can make my own template.

So I would like to say I'm sorry if you have problem viewing my blog. But please let me know if you have any suggestion or comment about my blog.

Thank you.
