Are passwords dead?

 

According to Wired's Mat Honan, they ought to be. Honan is the technology journalist who was hacked last year. In just a few minutes, his entire digital life, including photos of his young daughter, disappeared. If it can happen to a tech-savvy writer like Honan, it can happen to anyone.

Facebook's Graph Search worries security experts

Facebook's Graph Search worries security experts | Exploring Digital Citizenship | Scoop.it
Post highlighting embarrassing things raises questions of user privacy with Graph Search, which Facebook users cannot opt out of

 

Facebook believes its responsibility is to provide the privacy settings, while users are responsible for using them. "You control who you share your interests and likes with on Facebook," the company said Thursday in an emailed statement.

 

When joining Facebook, people trade their personal information for free use of the social network. Given that, security experts agree that people are responsible for controlling who sees that information.

 

However, some experts believe Facebook does not go far enough in educating users about the potential threats in keeping information public. Because Graph Search makes all that personal information easily searchable, education on its dangers should be a much higher priority for Facebook.

 

===> "Some people do not grasp the importance of Graph Search," said Bogdon Botezatu, a senior e-threat analyst for Bitdefender. "So maybe it would be better for Facebook to actually inform people that some things will change." <===

6 Tips for Becoming a Successful Blogger

Being a Blogger is easy, all your need to do is start a new Blog and start writing. Simple is int it? But have you ever thought what it takes to become a successful Blogger? How Bloggers make thousands of dollars every month? Well, answer is dedication, passion and most important they are serious about Blogging.

Lots of people try to earn money online but very few gets success. One of the best ways of earning online is blogging. Blogging is one of the best career opportunity these days. Blogging needs lots of hard work, research and long working hours. But one thing came into my mind can everyone get success in Blogging? If yes, why still many bloggers fail and give up their Blogging. Why many blogs get into parked page after a year and many people, don’t even bother renewing their Blog? The answer is the lack of passion and motivation.
WHAT IS TAKES TO BECOME A SUCCESS FUL BLOGGER?

1. You have writing skills:-

If you have great writing skills, you can become a successful blogger. Writing is the basic skill for becoming a blogger. Your blog readership will depend on how good your writing skills are. When I’m talking about writing, it doesn’t mean writing like an expert, but write like an individual. You are not writing for a book or a newspaper, as they are different. See the editorial page of a newspaper or a magazine, and that’s the exact kind of writing which I’m talking about.

Ten tip to improve your writing skills
2. You are disciplined:-

Although every work or profession needs to be disciplined but a blogger should be more disciplined. A blogger should work according to a time-table. It should divide into writing posts, commenting on other blogs and social networking promotion. If you want loyal readers, then you have to post regularly on your blog. If you do not blog regularly, then you will lose your readers.

Top productive tips for Bloggers
3. You are willing to learn:-

A blogger should always be ready to learn. I m still a learner. I read a lot of other blogs to gain more knowledge. Mostly bloggers share their experiences so that others can learn from them. So do spend some time to read other blogs so that you can increase your knowledge. I’m sure you are one of those who are willing to learn, and that’s why you are here. But even you achieve few goals and get initial success, don’t quit reading. Reading is an essential requirement which will help you to stay updated with the latest information.
4. You are good communicator:-

You can become a successful blogger if you are a good communicator. Some people think that a blogger’s work is over after writing the article. But they are wrong. The main work starts after the completion of the article. A blogger needs to promote that article on social networking sites and then he should also reply to all the comments he got on his article. You need a good communication skills for this. So improve your communication skills if you want to become a successful blogger.
5. You are willing to work hard:-

We have discussed earlier that hard work is the basis for becoming the successful blogger. A blogger has to work day and night to find new ideas and then he has to active on all the social networking sites to promote his blog. You don’t have to stress yourself with too much of work, rather use your time smartly and delegate time-consuming work to your virtual staff.
6. You are a creative person:-

It’s not necessary that every blogger should be a creative person, but it’s certainly an advantage for you. Creativity is one the most important part of writing. Creative articles always attract the attention of readers. It helps you to stand out from the rest.
Bonus: 7) You don’t make stupid mistakes:

Excuse me for my word, but I know as a newbie Blogger, we all make mistakes, and we learn from it. But the real deal is instead of making mistakes, learn from mistakes made by others which will help you to avoid those silly mistakes. Here are few articles, which will guide you few of the stupid mistakes a newBie blogger makes:

Top 21 Blogging mistake that can ruin your Blog
Five mistakes to avoid to become a successful Blogger
Eight things I wish I knew before I started Blogging

These are the qualities you should have if you want to become a blogger. As I said earlier anyone can become a blogger if he have these qualities. Please do add your thoughts in the comments section.

What is Naivety in the Digital Age?

What is Naivety in the Digital Age? | Exploring Digital Citizenship | Scoop.it

[Start Text from Wikipedia]

Naivety (or naïvety, naïveté, etc.), is the state of being naive—having or showing a lack of experience, understanding or sophistication, often in a context where one neglects pragmatism in favor of moral idealism. One who is naive may be called a naif. [End Text from Wikipedia]

 

=============================================

 

Gust MEES

 

Naivety in the Digital Age means not realizing and accepting the dangers of Internet, the ignorance of the need to secure its computer and any other device connecting to the Internet (smartphones + ...), having no clue about Cyber-Security and people who think that Internet-Safety ALONE is enough!

 

===> Naif means ALSO thinking that a certain Operating System is secure and perfect! Nobody is perfect: <===

 

- Apple: http://www.scoop.it/t/apple-mac-ios4-ipad-iphone-and-in-security

 

- Linux: http://www.scoop.it/t/securite-pc-et-internet?q=Linux

 

- Windows: everybody knows that already...

 

 

In 21st Century Internet-Safety ALONE isn't enough anymore, a need for sure, but there is a MUST to teach and to learn ALSO about basics of Cyber-Security! Both together are a MUST! NOT ONLY one alone!

 

Would YOU like to get called a naif because not having those skills?

 

Certainly NOT, so check out my FREE courses please to become a good eCitizen, Digital Citizen and share it with YOUR family, colleagues, friends and...
