Privacy- Three new reports show your privacy is at serious risk

Privacy- Three new reports show your privacy is at serious risk | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it

"If you believe hackers find your personal data less appealing, you are mistaken... and vulnerable..."

 

From Sean Goldsmith in the S&A Digest:

If you're a user of the social-media website Twitter, you may want to check your account status… Wired magazine reports that the service just discovered a "live hack." Twitter shut down the hack "moments later." But the attacker had already made off with the private data of 250,000 users. This includes usernames, e-mail addresses, and passwords.

Should You Use Vine For Your Small Business? These 6 Qs Will Help You Decide - Spokal

What’s Vine?

It’s Twitters new social network that makes it easy to create and share social videos on the go.

 

Twitter is obsessed with limitations (because they breed creativity), so just like we only have 140 characters in a tweet, we only have 6 seconds to shoot a Vine.

 

Vine was released on February 4, 2013 and within 7 days of launching, over 100,000 Vines had been shared. Which makes you think…

Sharla Shults's insight:

Just think, if a picture is worth 1,000 words, how much is 6 seconds of video worth? If you do the math, there’s an average of 24 frames a second. Multiply that by 6 seconds and we get 144 frames. That’s the equivalent to 144,000 words!

4 Twitter Tools Every Teacher should Know about

4 Twitter Tools Every Teacher should Know about | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it

Twitter is a powerful educational social networking website that has a huge potential for  teachers professional development.

 

Twitter is also ideal as a  PLN  where you get to connect with other educators from all around the globe and exchange teaching and learning materials with them. Building a PLN, however, requires making acquaintances with similar like-minded teachers and also developing your list of followers; but once you have such a solid PLN problems of maintaining it and staying updated with what others tweet become a tricky challenge.

 

I have curated for you some powerful tools to help you benefit the maximum from  the PLN you create on Twitter. Check them out below.
