DIGITAL LITERACY USED TO DEFEAT SLAVERY WORLDWIDE

DIGITAL LITERACY USED TO DEFEAT SLAVERY WORLDWIDE | Digital Literacy for my students | Scoop.it

Forced marriages are slavery. In several countries - including India, Pakistan and Afghanistan - some parents give their daughters away to settle family debts. This basically enslaves these young women for life, because even though divorce is legally possible, very few decide to go down that road, fearing the cultural and social stigma that comes with divorced women. For the same reason, some fall victims of debt bondage, offering their services to people they owe money. It's a vicious condition, because the terms of this "relationship" are often not specified, and sometimes entire generations find themselves trapped in this system without the chance to escape. Child labor is slavery. The exploitation of children still goes on in several countries in the world, with Eritrea, Somalia and the DR Congo leading this shameful list. Some children do escape this vicious cycle, but lack of education slows down their development, and very few end up having a normal life.

Human trafficking, forced labour and sexual slavery go hand in hand. With the promise of a legit job, young individuals embark themselves in journeys that turn up being nightmares. Many are sold pretty much in the same way African slaves were for centuries. Good part of these people - most of whom children - are kidnapped and shipped to other countries. There they find themselves trapped by criminal organizations that, should they try to escape, wouldn't think twice before eliminating them. Eastern Europe, Central Asia, India, Brazil and Thailand's go-go bars provide us with just a few examples of locations infected by these prostitution rings. Unfortunately, these places are notorious to sex tourists, who choose them to do what it would be hard in their own countries because of stricter regulations. Because of this, some governments close an eye on prostitution and sex trafficking, as these deviated tourists represent a huge financial boost to their economies.

Topsy: a game changer for search, e-reputation, & data analysis | #SNA_INDATCOM #databrokers #politics | Digital Literacy for my students | Scoop.it

"I regularly use Twitter’s own search as well as TweetDeck and Kred (once I am logged in) to scan and search the hashtags and keywords.

But, Topsy is a game changer.

The free comprehensive index and social analysis tool, searches keywords, hashtags and @ signs from minutes ago or from across a span of years, retrieving your social needles from millions of haystacks of billions of tweets.

Topsy is a way to instantly discover breaking news and just released press-releases and track current conversations and just posted media."

TWITTER POLITICAL INDEX

During the 2012 U.S. Presidential election, Topsy and Twitter created the Twitter Political Index (or Twindex), which provided a daily gauge of voters’ sentiment for each candidate as expressed on Twitter. Using mentions of their last name or direct @mentions of their Twitter handle, the Twindex tracked sentiment for Obama and Romney from May 1 until Election day, showing when each gained momentum in the race.

How Twitter used Topsy APIs

Twitter used Topsy’s content and metrics API data to create a custom dashboard to help capture the nuance of public opinion.

Live tracking of sentiment to produce the Twindex. Additional, minute-level analysis during convention speeches and debatesMention counts on a wide array of topic areas—including the economy, foreign policy, and immigration—on a minute, hourly, and daily basisHistorical comparative analysis between the Gallup poll for presidential approval between 2010-2012 and Topsy sentiment for Obama, demonstrating a strong correlation between the two (and strongest when Topsy sentiment led the Gallup numbers by a few days)
