Today social networks are very popular in the world. In our country, the famous “Facebook” has fewer fans than domestic counterparts – “Odnoklassniki” and “VKontakte.” It is the second network today that is the largest in the CIS, bringing together more than 100 million users.
The interface “VKontakte” is quite simple, but the functionality is understandable. This attracts a popular social network, giving the opportunity not only to communicate with loved ones, but also entertainment, sharing photos and videos. Nevertheless, the site also has its secrets, after learning that, it will be much easier for the user to work.
Delete the page.
There are always those who do not like the service for one reason or another. For a long time, deleting your page from VKontakte was very difficult. Users simply did not know where the button was located. And the creators either hid it deep in the menu, or simply did not give such an opportunity. This is understandable – in the market there is a struggle for each user, you can not give him the opportunity to leave. But now the network has become very popular, the creators are no longer afraid to provide such an opportunity to dissatisfied. To do this, go to the “My Settings” menu and at the very bottom click on the link “You can delete your page”. Next, you need to choose the reason for such a step. At the same time, the authors of the site came up with humor to this step, offering very funny reasons for deleting the account. Next, click the “Delete page” button and a window will appear that indicates that such an action has been taken. However, there is also a link on which you can restore the page. This is very useful, because a person can suddenly think better.
Bypassing the ban on visiting “VKontakte.”
Often company management struggles with its employees so that they do not visit this social network. After all, communication is so addictive that time for work simply does not remain. However, in this case there is an output – use of intermediate servers or a proxy. A list of them is easy to find on the Internet. In the case of a proxy, you need to register it in the network settings of the browser. However, this step is risky in terms of security, because passwords go through unknown resources. There are also special plug-ins for some browsers that will themselves organize the work through the proxy server. So it’s worth to first study the user reviews in search of a really reliable partner site.
Third-party programs and services.
Many users dream of gaining access to certain “secret” features of the site. This is the viewing of other people’s messages, and the definition of page visitors, viewing of closed profiles, increasing the rating … To implement such a task, many sites offer to download this or that program. Only here anti-virus for some reason they swear at, and the applications themselves first of all ask to enter a login and password into the social network. Is it any wonder that the account ends up being lost? Therefore, the advice in this case can be one – do not trust questionable programs and try to deceive the system. The result can be deplorable. A similar story and with third-party services offering through them to visit “VKontakte”, if this social network is closed at work. Such resources often steal user passwords.
Scripts for the browser.
Almost all modern browsers support work with scripts and plug-ins. Some of them can significantly ease the life of the user. It is worth choosing such scripts, considering their capabilities. You can find them even at the userscripts.org site. A good example is Greasmonkey for Mozilla Firefox. He will add some very useful functionality to the “VKontakte” pages. So, among the list of audio recordings there will be a link “Download”. It is also possible to remove ads and banners, change text emoticons to graphic, fix the main menu when scrolling the page and other features. It’s easy to find scripts that help browsers download and video from social networking pages.
Change the language.
Today it is already possible to easily change the interface language “VKontakte”. There are three ways for this. First of all you can, after leaving the profile, see the list of languages at the bottom of the site. Just click on any you like. If the user has already logged into their profile, then at the bottom of their page, where the copyright icon is located and years, there is a link to the current language. Clicking on it, you can change this option. You can also do this in the “My Settings” menu. Among the menus the penultimate is responsible for “Regional settings”. There, you can also change the interface language.
Among the tens of millions of users of the social network there are many stars. After all, their interests coincide in many respects with ordinary people. But for every star there is a dozen, if not more, clones. These accounts have photos of a celebrity, on her behalf they write and communicate with fans. Each clone claims that it is a real person. Determine where is the profile of this star, it is quite difficult. Therefore, do not trust the first found Philip Kirkorov or Anfisa Chekhova. Information about the account of the star “VKontakte” is better still to check on its official website. One thing is certain, most celebrities, especially young people, are actually registered in this social network.
Security issues always appear on popular resources. It is not difficult to find sites that offer passwords to VKontakte accounts or methods, how to get them. What should a poor user do? Can he feel safe? In fact, it is worthwhile to know that crackers use only a simple search of numbers or a dictionary attack, which contains the most frequently used words. Knowing this technique, it is not difficult to formulate rules for creating your own password. First of all, it should not be short. Better than the password will be at least 8 characters long. It is best to use letters in addition to letters, and adding one or more capital letters or special characters to the password will make it completely safe. For example, the password “21OlechkA7 # 8” attackers will not be able to pick exactly. Another recommendation is to be trivial. Do not store your password on a piece of paper in your purse or enter it in third-party programs or websites. Also on the computer should be an antivirus and preferably have a firewall.
Today, many users tend to get into the social network from their mobile device – a phone or tablet. Specially for them a mobile version of the site – m.vk.com was created. It is simplified and adapted for viewing on such devices, which greatly facilitates navigation across sections. Yes, and traffic will be spent much less, which often becomes critical.
It often happens that you need to send the same message at once to several recipients. It can be a congratulation with some kind of holiday or an invitation to a group, to an event. “VKontakte” offers to create a multicast message. To do this, go to “My Messages” and click “Write a message”. Then, in the “Recipient” field, you just need to select one by one, all those who need to deliver this letter.

How to find out the email of the user.
Despite the fact that there are no legal ways to find out the user’s e-mail address, the VKontakte administration does not, there is still a way out. After all, sometimes it is so necessary to find out the email of a person who rarely goes into his profile. In this case, it is worth talking to his friends, they can help in the search. In extreme cases, by the name and surname of the person and his city, you can try and find a phone on the Internet. Perhaps, there are traces in another social network or in Skype / ICQ. But trust third-party programs should not, for the above reasons.
