The Secret to a Perfect Facebook Post

The Secret to a Perfect Facebook Post | Business Resources | Scoop.it

Small businesses that use Facebook to get the word out and promote their companies should check out a new report from Buddy Media, a social ad-management software provider. The report is drawn from the company’s analysis of 200 clients’ Facebook posts over a two-week period, in addition to the comments and “likes” spurred by those posts.

 

The report contains a number of good takeaways, including its findings on post length. It found that Facebook posts containing 80 or fewer characters had 27 percent higher engagement rates than longer posts. (You’re not the only one who struggles to be brief: Just 19 percent of all posts analyzed were that short.)

Google Declares War on the Password | Wired Enterprise | Wired.com

Google Declares War on the Password | Wired Enterprise | Wired.com | Business Resources | Scoop.it

Want an easier way to log into your Gmail account? How about a quick tap on your computer with the ring on your finger?

 

This may be closer than you think. Google’s security team outlines this sort of ring-finger authentication in a new research paper, set to be published late this month in the engineering journal IEEE Security & Privacy Magazine. In it, Google Vice President of Security Eric Grosse and Engineer Mayank Upadhyay outline all sorts of ways they think people could wind up logging into websites in the future — and it’s about time.

 

2012 may have been the year that the password broke. It seemed like everyone on the internet received spam e-mail or desperate pleas for cash — the so-called “Mugged in London” scam — from the e-mail accounts of people who had been hacked. And Wired’s own Mat Honan showed everyone just how damaging a hack can be.

Matmi's curator insight, January 22, 2013 6:12 AM

Interesting to think that we could one day be using the rings on our fingers or our smartphones instead of passwords to access our emails . I think this probably makes us more vulnerable to hacking, phones/rings are very easy to loose - What are do you think ? Would you prefer it this way or the traditional password way ? - HK
