The Rise of The Scrolling Site | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

In 10 short years, the web has evolved from a collection of barebones informational sites, to a vast world of interactive experiences, immense social networks, complex data visualizations, applications and utilities. It has become a huge part of our lives, and as such we have shaped it to fit our ever evolving needs. This article will explore the emergence of the scrolling site: what it is and how it came to be one of the most popular and effective ways of presenting content on the web.

What Brands and Marketers Need To Know About Mobile Consumers | Marketing Agency | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

The rapid growth in the usage of smartphones devices in most parts of the world is having an impact on consumers and businesses too. Smartphones and tablets are increasingly influencing how the consumers are shopping, making buying decisions and engaging with brands. The decision to purchase is now influenced by content that users generate and others read, for example reviews, and social media peer opinions.
According to eMarketer, up to one third of consumers in North America and Western Europe use their mobile devices to access social media at least once in a month in 2012. Today more than 50% of all the people on Twitter and Facebook are accessing these social platforms using their mobile devices.

How To Protect Your Business Info From Prying Eyes When Using Public WiFi

How To Protect Your Business Info From Prying Eyes When Using Public WiFi | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

I don’t know about you, but I love working from coffee shops. There is something about it that helps the creativity flow and I seem to be able to write better. From many entrepreneurs that I talk to feel the same way. It’s a great feeling to sit down with a nice Mocha and pump out some good content and complete tasks. But there is one HUGE risk when doing this…

With coffee shops, or anywhere else that offers free public WiFi, it is a perfect place for snoopers and hackers to take all of your files and info. For example, let’s say you jump on Facebook real quick to check out what’s happening… That username and password you just typed in, just went public. Meaning, anyone with the right program (which I am not going to talk about) could have just swiped your info. It’s crazy, but it really is that easy. The same goes for logging on via your tablet or smartphone. Public Hot Spots are NOT safe at all! So the question is, do we risk our privacy for convenience?

Well the good news is, you don’t have to! Your best solution for keeping your info safe while enjoying your local coffee shop is something called a VPN (Virtual Private Network). A VPN helps encrypt your data going through the WiFi. VPNs also provide other features besides just security, but I want to focus on the security aspect in this post.

Yes! Highly recommended. I have used VPN's for years, living in emerging countries where Skype was blocked and many websites or social networks. Now we use it all the time, even in safe locations, especially when looking up financial accounts. I remember just recently accessing a credit card account, without having my VPN on. The next day this account was hacked. VPN's are a must.

How often do we stop to log in to get an update on email or social media and figure "what's the risk?" In this case, it could be plenty.

Steps For Protecting Your Smartphone Data

Steps For Protecting Your Smartphone Data | Internet Presence | Scoop.it
We keep a lot of important information on our phones. Gone are the days when we used our cell phones strictly for communication; in this modern age, our smartphones are now mobile computers. And that means we rely on them more and more for a range of different tasks that are interconnected with our lives, including banking, investing, storage of personal information, photography and videography, and more. Put simply, losing a phone now is a far greater deal than it used to be.To read the full article, click on the title.Get your Free Business Plan Template here: http://bit.ly/1aKy7km

4 Technology Trends Disrupting How We Communicate

4 Technology Trends Disrupting How We Communicate | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

As much as I love to get out and do public speaking, running a business can make it really hard to find the time to travel, deliver a presentation and keep up with the day to day operations. Especially without worrying about what you may be missing back at the office.

However, tomorrow I will be heading off to deliver a new presentation on technology disruption to a crowd of primarily B2B IT executives and as I prepared a presentation on disruption I couldn’t help but think of the irony.

The focus of the presentation is set to be on how technology isn’t just disruptive, but it is changing the way we communicate. In a world where our technology is so pervasive that we spend most of our time looking like this…

Top 5 Reasons to Adopt Responsive Web Design in 2014 | Tips | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

Is responsive web design your top priority this year? If not, you must get in touch with the upcoming design trends in 2014 by adopting this popular design technique.

I have compiled a list of the top 5 reasons why you should switch to responsive web design as sooner as today!

1. Google’s Recommendation

Nothing can beat our reason number one. In, 2012, Google strongly recommended the use of responsive web design and presently deems it to be the best practice for smart-phone optimized websites. Responsive websites have one URL and the same HTML. This lets Google easily crawl and index your website content. This reason alone should make you sign up for responsive design now!

Mobile Banking Apps: Are We Really Safe?

Mobile Banking Apps: Are We Really Safe? | Internet Presence | Scoop.it
I am in love with smartphone applications or just simply "apps" as most--if not all--of us refer it to. With the development these apps had for the past couple of years, it's safe to say that they simply make our everyday lives easier.

There’s even this one radio ad that i heard before claiming that these days, “there’s always an app for everything”.

Well, thinking about it, i think it is true.  A lot of companies from all parts of the world of all sorts these days have created mobile apps crafted for iOS, Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry users designed for them to reach their customers easier in different ways. One example are Banks. Banks from all over the world created smartphone apps to let their customers check their balance or perform whatever banking transaction they need to just like paying bills, as long as these actions are available with the web version of their Bank’s eBanking services.

Yes, it is very convenient. But, the question is: Are we really that willing to entrust the safety of our hard earned money into these mobile applications our banks are offering when we hardly know how safe it was developed...

A primer on the photosharing service that Facebook reportedly offered to buy for $3 billion.


.... How does Snapchat actually work?


Once you've found your friends on Snapchat, you can simply start taking pictures and sending them out to as many friends as you want.The app has a couple of distinguishing features in terms of photo taking. One, users can draw on their photos. So that's funny sometimes. Two, you can caption any photo. Three, you get to set how long — from 1-10 seconds — the photograph will be visible to receivers. Crucially, too, the app tells you when your snaps are opened by the receiver. You know they saw it....

How Big Data Is Transforming The Mobile Industry

How Big Data Is Transforming The Mobile Industry | Internet Presence | Scoop.it
As our personal and business lives migrate into mobile, there's virtually no end to big data applications.

The world is awash in data.

CIBC, a Canadian bank, predicts that information-generation growth will increase 50 times over the next decade. IDC, a market research firm, similarly forecasts a 44-fold increase in data volumes between 2009 and 2020. Mobile is playing a large part in driving this explosion in data.

Apple upended the electronics business six years ago with the release of the iPhone. The iPhone ushered in an era when design, both of software and hardware, became the paramount concept in the tech world.

Could data be the paradigm that anchors the next revolution? Many think so. 

In a recent report from BI Intelligence on Big Data and Mobile, we define big data, examine mobile's connection to it, analyze its potential, practical applications, and pitfalls, look at how it's collected, and answer some of the most frequently asked questions about big data and mobile.

Here's an overview of the relationship between big data and mobile:
