Facebook's Android app leaks your mobile number, Symantec discovers

Facebook's Android app leaks your mobile number, Symantec discovers | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
A discovery about Facebook's official Android app once again puts into question if the social network's developers truly *get* security and privacy.

 

As Symantec describe on its blog, when its developers tested its new Norton Mobile Security product against some of the world’s most popular Android apps, they were disturbed to see a warning message claiming that the Facebook Android app leaks personal information without the device owner’s knowledge:

The good news is that Facebook confirmed Symantec’s findings, and has said it will fix the problem in the next version of its Android app. Furthermore, the social network says that it does not use or process the phone numbers it has been receiving, and has deleted them from its servers. [We hope!]

10 New Ways Twitter Is Changing The College Lecture

10 New Ways Twitter Is Changing The College Lecture | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

Continuing our theme of using Twitter in education this week, we bring you a look at the ways Twitter is causing the current lecture model to evolve. The following analysis is brought to you by our content partners over at Online Universities.

 

Gone is the time when PowerPoint was the most impressive communication technology in the lecture hall. These days, students and professors enjoy the power of Twitter, a tool that allows for digital discussions to supplement and even guide lecture sessions. So how exactly is Twitter changing the college lecture as we know it?

 

Read on to find out about 10 different ways.

 

- Mobile devices are welcome in the lecture hall once again

- Lectures become a conversation

- Bashful students are speaking up

- More students get connected in large lectures

- Students stay engaged beyond the lecture

- Dorm discussions don’t happen as much anymore, and that’s OK

- There’s more information saved now than ever before

- Students think about lectures even when they’re not at school

- Review sessions happen anywhere

- Fewer classroom disruptions exist

7 Steps to Safer Social Media in the Classroom

7 Steps to Safer Social Media in the Classroom | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
How to create guidelines for responsible use of social tools.

...

1. Examine your school culture. Gain an understanding of how your community feels about social media.

 

2. Organize a team. Include both educators who use social media in the classroom and those who do not.

 

3. Research. Evaluate policies already in place at your school. Look around at other schools. See what they’ve done. Get a sense for what works and what doesn’t.

 

4. Write a draft and solicit feedback. This is the hard part, says Anderson. Gather the information you’ve collected and ask others to weigh in. Schedule meetings and talk to stakeholders face to face.

 

5. Have the draft vetted by the school attorney and school board. Make sure your policy does not violate any current laws, policies or ordinances.

 

6. Introduce the policy to the community. Every team member should be tasked with reaching out to different stakeholder groups, says Anderson. It’s important to be open and transparent.

 

7. Conduct periodic reviews. Your new social media policy should be “a living document that is revisited often.”

Facebook unveils new mobile security measures

Facebook unveils new mobile security measures | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Facebook has introduced three security updates for protecting its mobile users: a code generator, the ability to report unwanted content on your phone, and improved mobile recovery flows.

The code generator should make it easier to confirm logins made on new devices, as users will be able to receive Login Approval codes through their Facebook Application and via SMS, so it will work regardless of whether the users have cellular or Internet access.
