About Public and Protected Tweets

About Public and Protected Tweets | Exploring Digital Citizenship | Scoop.it
Twitter is without a doubt the best way to share and discover what is happening right now.

 

 

 

 

 

What is the difference between public and protected Tweets?

 

When you sign up for Twitter, you have the option to keep your Tweets public (the default account setting) or to protect your Tweets. Accounts with protected Tweets require manual approval of each and every person who may view that account's Tweets.

G+ is catching up big time for many reasons.  Among these reasons is the Hangout integration.  

 

We just facilitated a remote 1.5 day leadership development session with Hangouts and it was fantastic.  

 

Google is sticking to their strategy and their value is starting to win people over.  I was never a fan and, through valuable features, I am changing my perspective on the suite of offerings.

 

This is a relevant infographic.

Gust MEES's curator insight, February 13, 2013 9:37 AM

Le code d’éthique est le résultat d’une réflexion du comité jeunesse visant à déterminer les moyens collectifs pour persévérer et réussir à l’école. L’obtention de bons résultats en cours et un climat sain dans en classe ne sont pas nécessairement du ressort de l’enseignant.

 

La responsabilisation entre les élèves grâce à ce projet vise également à diminuer le nombre d’interventions liées à la discipline.

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.
