Preventing Doxing | Crash Override Network - Anti-Online Hate Task Force, staffed by former targets, providing resources, outreach, and support to combat mob hatred and harassment.

Preventing Doxing | Crash Override Network - Anti-Online Hate Task Force, staffed by former targets, providing resources, outreach, and support to combat mob hatred and harassment. | Social Media Articles - Social Media Working Group | Scoop.it

Preventing Doxing"Doxing" is a common first-stage tactic of mobs of anonymous online groups looking to intimidate you and start digging up information on your life. Sure, where you live may have nothing to do with whatever their beef is with you, but by bringing up personal information, irrelevant to the subject at hand, that the target could have some reasonable expectation of privacy around, they are to trying to violate the target’s boundaries and intimidate them into fearing how this information may be used. What’s worse is that once this information is out there and in malicious hands, it’s likely been backed up across several pastebin and archive.today type services, making it difficult to remove. 

 

The best thing you can do, then, to prevent doxing, is to preemptively not put your address out there, or remove any mention from it that already exists.

​The 25 worst passwords of 2014: Is yours one of them?

​The 25 worst passwords of 2014: Is yours one of them? | Social Media Articles - Social Media Working Group | Scoop.it
It's arguably the easiest, most basic way to protect your personal information. Yet people still don't make the effort to create strong passwords to log in to social media, email, stores and other websites. From its annual compilation of 3.3 million passwords leaked online, SplashData has pulled the 25 most common -- and therefore least secure -- not-so-secret codes.

Topping the list? For the fourth year running: "123456" and "password." Might as well just write, "Hackers, come get me." (Actually, that would be more secure.)

The 100 worst passwords include easy series of letters and numbers in alphabetical or numerical order, or as they appear on the keyboard (e.g. "qwerty" and "1qaz2wsx," the first two semi-columns of keys), favorite sports and sports teams and less than clever phrases like "letmein," "access," and, ironically, "trustno1."

Happening Today [Jan 22 2015 5pm ET]: YouTube Creators Interview President Obama Live from the White House | Social Media Articles - Social Media Working Group | Scoop.it
Watch on YouTube This is a pretty big deal: Each year, the President typically spends the days following a State of the Union address answering questions and elaborating on the plans he's laid out for the year. That can mean interviews with reporters, speeches across the country, or even chatting with folks from their homes.

 

YouTube creators Bethany Mota, GloZell Green and Hank Green interview President Obama about the top issues facing them and their audiences. Live on Thursday, Jan 22, 2015 at 5pm ET.

Dick Pope: 'I have been called a lot worse'

Dick Pope: 'I have been called a lot worse' | Social Media Articles - Social Media Working Group | Scoop.it
'Mr. Turner' cinematographer Dick Pope talks to USA TODAY about his Oscar nomination and now infamous 'Dick Poop' name miscue.

 

The cinematographer for Mr. Turner made international news after Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science President Cheryl Boone Isaacs mispronounced his name during the nominations, calling him "Dick Poop."

 

She quickly corrected herself, but Twitter exploded with the news.

 

Pope took it all in stride, speaking to USA TODAY over the phone from London.

 

"You know what, I have been called a lot worse in my time," said Pope. "I don't think twice about anything like that. I am happy to be nominated."

 

While elated for the nomination, he also immediately heard the news about the name miscue.

 

"You don't need to explain it to me. I have had it explained one hundred times," said Pope. "I feel sorry for the lady who made the mispronunciation."

 

Nor was he impressed about the fact he was trending on Twitter.

 

"I have never been on Twitter and I don't know what trending means. I am completely naive," said Pope. "All I know is that I have a lot of e-mails here saying I am trending on Twitter. They might as well be saying I am landing on the moon, as far as I am concerned."

Digital Publishing: Get Linked In | Editor & Publisher ®

Digital Publishing: Get Linked In | Editor & Publisher ® | Social Media Articles - Social Media Working Group | Scoop.it
Let’s face it—everyone in your newsroom probably has an account on LinkedIn. The site started slowly back in 2003, with as little as 20 new members a day logging on to create potential connects with other professionals. But the little social media site has done a lot of growing up in recent years, boasting over 330 million users in 200 countries, 40 percent of whom use the site on a daily basis.

Other than tweaking their resumes and looking for jobs, what are all those people doing on LinkedIn? More importantly, what value does it have to offer to a reporter already bogged down with Twitter and Facebook?

It turns out, as LinkedIn has grown users, it has also evolved into an important tool that has allowed journalists to break big news stories.
