Ask FM is a popular Q/A website where you can ask users questions anonymously and answer questions too. It was created in 2010, where it was commonly used by people in Ireland but slowly gained popularity around the world and it has stolen 1/10th users from famous social networking websites such as Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat etc. Just like the popular social networking sites mentioned before, Ask FM has released a feature which allows you to " verify " your account. In this article you will learn how to get verified on Ask FM.

What's the advantage of verifying your account?

​You must be blind if you see any disadvantages to this, as there are only advantages. Being verified on Ask FM means the same thing as on other social networking sites. It's proof that the account belongs to you and also gives a celebrity type impression of your profile to the viewer.

​Now the great thing about Ask FM verification is that you don't need to be an actual celebrity in real life, as in someone who's featured in a blockbuster or walked the moon. You can be a ordinary person in real life and still get verified on Ask FM but that doesn't mean there are any requirements or it's easy or else you'd see every user verified, which would make it lose it's standard.


How to get verified on Ask FM - Requirements


​Before you apply, you need to make sure you qualify for these requirements in order to increase your account's chance of being verified.​

​Activity: You need to be moderately active. By active, I mean answering, questioning and liking other people's answers on a DAILY basis. ​

Good vibes: Don't expect Ask FM to verify you if you promote hate speech or endorse bullying. Make sure to send out good vibes by answering and asking questions politely.

The obvious: Make sure your account represents a real person. If your Ask FM profile has fake account written all over it, chances are Ask FM will notice and won't accept you. To prevent this from happening, make sure to put a profile picture of yourself, connect your account to other social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter etc.  If you're popular on AskFM it means you're one step ahead and should go ahead on applying as you're more likely to be accepted.


How to get verified on Ask FM - Applying 


If you believe you fulfill more than 3/4 requirements mentioned above, it's time to apply.

​Note: If you've a verified account on Facebook or Twitter already, you can automatically verify your Ask FM account by just linking them both.

1. ​Submit a ticket by clicking here.

2. ​Select " Account verification " on the drop-down list next to " Inquiry type "

4. ​Press Finish when you're done.


Now you've to wait. Ask FM team will review your profile and see whether you're worthy or not to carry the " Blue badge " and if they do find you worthy, they'll ask you to send a selfie to confirm that it's you. As I said above, if you fulfill 3/4 of the requirements mentioned above, you're less likely to get rejected.

If you do get rejected, don't cry as it doesn't mean the end of the world and you can apply again after a month or so, meanwhile you can improve your profile to fit the requirements.

Top 10 ways to increase followers on Twitter

Add Comment
Although Facebook is still the boss of social media, Twitter seems to be catching up. Nowadays everyone you know who are on Facebook are on Twitter too. Twitter is known as a great place for stalking people's lives without having to move your feet as we live in a generation where everyone loves to express every single thoughts they have on social networks, espically Twitter as it's the only social website where it's socially acceptable to post frequently where as in Facebook if one was to post several times, people would become annoyed. It's easy to sign up for Twitter and start Tweeting, but what's the point of tweeting if you barely have any followers? Tweeting your thoughts & having no one read them is quite embarrassing when you realize it's equivalent to talking to yourself. So here in this article I will be discussing Top 10 ways to increase/get more Followers on Twitter.


Increase rate of followers on Twitter when no one is following back

Don't forget to comment what you thought about this article & your favorite way to gain followers. 


#1 - Make sure your profile is presentable


The first thing you should do after signing up is adding a profile picture & writing a nice bio as these two things are the first thing a person will see and then base his first impression on you and decide whether or not to follow you. Remember, first impression is the last impression. Adding a profile picture, cover (optional but recommended) & a nice bio puts a good impression on the visitor and increases chance of them following you by 80 percent.


Tip: When choosing a bio, write down what describes you best. If you're still confused on what to write down, use this Bio Generator to get an idea.



#2 - Follow everyone you know & ask them to give you an shoutout


When you're new to twitter, don't bother following randomers as there is less chance of them following you back as their first thing in their mind would be " What will I get in return of following him/her? To get more money, you need money. To get more women, you need women. Same as for followers, you NEED followers to gain more FOLLOWERS. So start of by following people you're sure that would follow you back such as classmates, relatives, teachers etc And also don't be afraid to ask them for a shoutout, you'll be surprised how many people would follow you just because of a shoutout. Shoutouts always worked for me in my initial stage.


#3 - Tweet when most people are online


If you've already have 1000 followers but noticed they don't retweet or fav any of your tweets, the reason is because you're tweeting on the wrong time. The best time to tweet is when majority your followers are online. If majority of your followers are locals then it's easy to map out when to tweet but if majority of your followers are from another country then you will need to tweet according to their timezone.


#4 - Participate in Trends


The most popular feature of Twitter is Trends which you can view on the left side of Twitter's homepage. Click on a Trend of your choice & start tweeting under that trend in order to attract attention from other people and gain followers.


Tip: If you don't like the current trends, you can change them by clicking on " Change " option besides Trends.



#5 - Use Hashtags


If you're not using hashtags in your tweets then you're using Twitter wrong. Using a hashtag helps more people see your tweets instead of just your followers, which will help you gain followers and if a lot of other people start tweeting using the same Hashtag, it can turn into a Trend which is pretty awesome.


Tip: Make sure to use hashtags related to what you're tweeting so people don't ignore it or flag it as spam.



#6 - Post Pictures


If you thought Twitter was all just about tweeting texts then you're wrong! In fact using pictures with hashtags helps make your tweet stand out from the rest & gain more audience, meaning more followers. If all you do is Tweet plain text then your followers would get bored so it's advised to post pictures once in a while to help make your Twitter profile more alive.


#7 - Link your Twitter Profile


Make sure to place a link to your Twitter profile on your website or other social networking accounts so people from there can follow you too, preferably Facebook & Instagram as most Twitters users are on them as compared to other social networking sites.


#8 - Tweet Frequently


Don't forget to tweet frequently if you want to keep your Followers stable. Most people use services to track Inactive followings on Twitter and they don't even hesitate to unfollow those who forgot to tweet once a day, but I wouldn't recommend you to sacrifice your life in order to use Twitter everyday I recommend you to tweet at least once per day or in 2 days to avoid those pesky services. Everyone hates following Inactive people and so do you probably, so make sure not to become one of them.


#9 - Retweet & Favourite others


" To gain, you gotta give first " This is the main rule of social networking, if someone interacts with you by following or sharing your posts they expect the same in return otherwise you'll scare them away. You can use this technique on others by retweeting & favouriting tweets on your timeline so they can do the same.


#10 - Use services


Use free services such as Crowdfire or Unfollowers to track who unfollowed or followed you on Twitter easily so you can return the favour by unfollowing them or following back, they're very useful tools & prevent a lot of hassle from having to go through your whole profile and figure out who unfollowed you and who didn't etc. Read How to see who Unfollowed you on Twitter for more information.

How to download old versions of apps for Android

App updates can either be a blessing or a curse. For developers, space for improvement never runs out meanwhile it can be pain for the users as they tend to get adjusted or find the new update way too complicated. But no matter what the update is, you'd want to update out of curiosity or just end up updating the app by accident. After you've updated the app, there's no way to go back to older version through the Google Playstore. No need to panic or worry, as you can easily reverse what you've done by simply downloading the older versions from the Internet. 

Before you begin, make sure to enable installation from unknown sources on your phone. Which can be done by navigating to settings > security. By enabling this, you'll be allowed to install apps from outside the Google Playstore.
