Twitter warns users they may have been hacked by 'state-sponsored actors' | Technology | Social Media | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

Twitter has warned a number of users that they may have been the target of a state-sponsored attack.

The company has apparently sent the warnings by email to more than twenty users, all of which contain the same details.

The warning begins: “As a precaution, we are alerting you that your Twitter account is one of a small group of accounts that may have been targeted by state-sponsored actors. We believe that these actors (possibly associated with a government) may have been trying to obtain information such as email addresses, IP addresses, and/or phone numbers.”

It continues: “At this time, we have no evidence they obtained you account information, but we’re actively investigating this matter. We wish we had more we could share, but we don’t have any additional information at this time.”

Facebook Tests Emoji Reactions to Fix Its ‘Dislike’ Problem | Empathy

Facebook Tests Emoji Reactions to Fix Its ‘Dislike’ Problem | Empathy | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Say it with a smiley.

Adam Mosseri, Facebook’s director of product, tells TechCrunch that Reactions will be tested in only two markets for now, Spain and Ireland, countries whose friend networks tend not to extend beyond national borders, making them ideal “closed test groups.” The biggest caveat: Facebook says it still needs to figure out whether it wants to tweak these empathetic emoji. “We’ll use the feedback from this to improve the feature and hope to roll it out to everyone soon,” Cox continued.

The other consideration, of course, is that a strict “dislike” button would be a bad thing for brands, a camp Facebook would rather not expose to hostilities. In fact, the new range of emotions could offer more than just defensive benefits. They let Facebook quantify your feelings with even more granularity, which could in turn help Facebook serve up ads that are even more well-suited to you. In the end, it’s all just data.

Digital Communication Students's curator insight, November 2, 2015 6:05 PM

Los usuarios ya llevan muchos años pidiendo una opción de "no me gusta" al lado del famoso "me gusta" en Facebook. La razón de esta demanda no es para informar negativamente de que un contenido o foto no es del agrado del usuario, sino para mostrar cierta empatía a la hora de leer una información devastadora. 

Aun con todo, no se ha conseguido una opción de "dislike"o "no me gusta" tal cual. Los profesionales de Facebook han decidido incorporar 7 emociones diferentes en las que el usuario puede decidir la más acertada según su estado de ánimo en el momento de visualizar la foto o leer la información. El motivo por el cual no se ha añadido una simple opción de "dislike" es puramente empresarial. Se ha estudiado que un botón de "no me gusta" afectaría a las ventas de productos publicitados en esta red social.

Twitter is building a news platform that lets you follow events instead of people | Project Lightning

Thought your private phone photos weren’t on Facebook? Think again…

Thought your private phone photos weren’t on Facebook? Think again… | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
This time, the problem was one of confidentiality, not availability.

Simply put, he found that, if you had Facebook's Photo Sync feature turned on, then any app with permission to access photos on your phone could access your synced photos, too.

Photo Sync means that whenever you take photos with your phone (and that includes screenshots, by the way), Facebook's app automatically uploads them to Facebook's cloud in case you want to publish them online later.

We can't think why that's a good idea, but many people seem to find the feature useful because:

You get an automatic backup of every photo.
Uploaded photos are private by default, so they aren't visible to other people until you want them to be.
It makes it convenient to share photos later on.
Laxman's bug was the fact that apps other than Facebook's own could read those synced photos back from the cloud.

Obviously, if you've authorised an app to access the photos on your device, you have already accepted the risk of allowing that app to do unsavoury things with private snapshots you might take.

So this is not an earth-moving bug, but it's definitely a security hole.

donhornsby's curator insight, March 12, 2015 9:55 AM

(From the article): Surprisingly enough, Facebook is giving DataSift the keys to the castle for free in exchange for helping it rapidly break into the market with the startup’s tech and relationships. DataSift will charge analytics firms a fee for queries, who will then mark up the price and sell it to brands.

 

If brands find the data valuable, it could draw them and their ad budgets closer to Facebook. Until now, Facebook has largely been a black box inside a walled garden. Marketers didn’t know what was said inside. DataSift and Topic Data let them peer inside.

Renea Hanks's curator insight, March 13, 2015 8:33 PM

This is awesome because we need better data from the Facebook to understand how to improve. We are always striving to do more and better. This helps us do that also on a larger scale.

Twitter to Stop Counting Photos and Links in 140-Character Limit | #SocialMedia 

Twitter to Stop Counting Photos and Links in 140-Character Limit | #SocialMedia  | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Twitter Inc. is making a major shift in how it counts characters in Tweets, giving users more freedom to compose longer messages.


The social media company will soon stop counting photos and links as part of its 140-character limit for messages, according to a person familiar with the matter. The change could happen in the next two weeks, said the person who asked not to be named because the decision isn’t yet public. Links currently take up 23 characters, even after Twitter automatically shortens them. The company declined to comment.


It’s a step in a larger plan to give users more flexibility on the site. Chief Executive Officer Jack Dorsey said in January that the company was looking for new ways to display text on Twitter, and would experiment based on how people use the service. For example, some people tweet screenshots of longer text in articles, or send many tweets one after the other to tell a story.


Twitter’s 140-character limit was originally adopted because it was a way to send Tweets while fitting all the information within a mobile text message -- a common way for sending Tweets when the service debuted in 2006, before the proliferation of smartphones.

donhornsby's curator insight, May 20, 7:38 AM
The company earlier this year considered raising the limit to as many as 10,000 characters. But the quick, concise nature of Tweets has helped set the site apart from the competition. Executives have spent the last few months emphasizing how Twitter is a destination for live events and discussion. Removing the character requirement for links and photos may encourage users to add more media to their posts.

It was always kind of shady that Facebook let you volunteer your friends' status updates, check-ins, location, interests and more to third-party apps. 


Overall, the changes could boost confidence in Facebook’s platform and the social network itself, which has struggled in the past with a reputation for spotty privacy.

Twitter is starting to realize it has more to lose by staying silent on the issue of abuse.

Twitter Now Tracking User IP Addresses - F-Secure Weblog | Privacy | Social Media

Twitter Now Tracking User IP Addresses - F-Secure Weblog | Privacy | Social Media | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

In order to determine that I was attempting to log in from an "unusual" location, Twitter must be keeping a history of my previous IP addresses to compare against. This type of security feature is not new, Facebook has been doing this sort of thing for years already. But I've not yet seen it from Twitter. (A few years ago, Twitter seemed to be actively against such an idea.) Unlike Facebook, I don't see anyplace from which I can download my own connection history. Previous IP addresses used are available to those who download a Facebook archive. But IP address information isn't in the Twitter archive that I downloaded today.

So then the questions I now have for Twitter is this: for how long have my connections been logged and tracked? And when will a copy of the data be available to me?
