Do you want to know how to stop Facebook, but keep your photos, turn your Amazon public profile, TV restaurants, and free audiobooks? Then read this column.

My Amazon Public Profile

Q: you say that we are the public profiles on Amazon as a social media account? I had no idea. How can I see it? How do I remove that?

A: The short answer is yes, you have a public profile on Amazon, and it is a bit like a social media account. You agreed when you signed up. The idea is very logical; if you have a profile that friends and loved ones can, they can buy smart gifts for you. Amazon has other little-known settings that can alarm you, and your shopping experience much more comfort when you change them. Tap or click here for five Amazon settings you should change now.

Stop Using Facebook, But Love My Photos

Q: I want to stop with Facebook. Is there a way to download all my photos?

A: You’re not alone. However, there are a few reasons why people hesitate before the termination of their accounts: they wonder how they stay in touch with friends and loved ones. They fear “missing” on important events, such as weddings, babies, and even funerals. Finally, they worry about losing their photos, which symbolize so many memories. Over the years, Facebook users can upload hundreds or even thousands of photos of their accounts, and it is difficult to imagine that the loss of this forever. Of course Facebook does not want to forego their service, so that they do not have any form of termination easily. There is now a way to download your photos and save them on your computer or on the cloud. Tap or click here to download all photos of Facebook.

Free Audio Books

Q: I listen to audiobooks. I’m tired of paying for them. Are there any decent free of charge?

A: No longer the awkward piles of audio cassettes, an audiobook is easy to download and takes up very little memory on your phone. You can run with an audiobook without having to worry about the CD skip. So useful if audio books are for exercising or long trips, they can be expensive, especially if you use a service such as iTunes or Audible. Don’t get me wrong; these platforms are fantastic, and you can Audible credit system to get incredible deals on some expensive titles. But “free” is always the best price and if you are not satisfied with your local library Overdrive collection, a website offers a real steal.
