Facebook loosens its rules on teen privacy | NetworkWorld.com

Facebook loosens its rules on teen privacy | NetworkWorld.com | Apps | Scoop.it
Facebook announced Wednesday that it is loosening privacy rules for its teen users.The announcement comes amid headlines about teenage bullying and cyber predators, and industry analysts expect the move to draw fire. The social network has frequently found itself criticized for its privacy policies, and this one could draw more attention than usual.Until Wednesday, Facebook users between the ages of 13 and 17 were only able to share status updates, pictures and videos with their online friends or friends of friends. With the new policy, teenage users may opt to open up their accounts and make their posts public."Teens are among the savviest people using social media, and whether it comes to civic engagement, activism, or their thoughts on a new movie, they want to be heard," the company wrote in a blog post . "While only a small fraction of teens using Facebook might choose to post publicly, this update now gives them the choice to share more broadly, just like on other social media services."Patrick Moorhead, an analyst with Moor Insights & Strategy, said the new policy could be an issue or Facebook. "Historically, online privacy activists have gotten riled up about Facebook privacy issues but it never really ever got far," he said. "Now there is the chance child advocacy and parent groups will step in."Facebook also is enabling teens to turn on a Follow feature, which allows their posts to show up in other's news feeds.Adult users have always been able to choose how public or private their information is made."We take the safety of teens very seriously, so they will see an extra reminder before they can share publicly," Facebook noted. " When teens choose "Public" in the audience selector, they'll see a reminder that the post can be seen by anyone, not just people they know, with an option to change the post's privacy. And if they choose to continue posting publicly, they will get an additional reminder."Zeus Kerravala, an analyst with ZK Research, said Facebook's move is all about advertising.Click headline to read more--

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads | Apps | Scoop.it
"The interest in inquiry-based learning seems to ebb and flow based on–well, it’s not clear why it ever ebbs. In short, it is a student-centered, Constructivist approach to learning that requires critical thinking, and benefits from technology, collaboration, resourcefulness, and other modern learning skills that never seem to fall out of favor themselves. Regardless, St Oliver Plunkett Primary School has put together two very useful images that can help you populate your iPad–or classroom of iPads–with apps that support both inquiry-based learning (the second image below), and a more general approach to pedagogy based on Apple’s uber-popular tablet (the top image)."
