This video, in a nutshell speaks on how social networking works and how you're able to connect with a lot of different people who you can then network to with to meet new people.

Whatsapp lässt Aufenthaltsort über längere Zeiträume teilen
Wer ist wo auf dem Musikfestival oder beim Shoppen? Das können Nutzer von Whatsapp nun kontinuierlich live verfolgen. Der Hersteller sagt, dass der Datenschutz dabei gewährleistet sei.
Der zu Facebook gehörende Kurzmitteilungsdienst Whatsapp gibt Nutzern die Möglichkeit, ihre Aufenthaltsorte für bis zu acht Stunden miteinander zu teilen.

 

Dabei seien die Ortsdaten komplett verschlüsselt und nur für die teilnehmenden Nutzer sichtbar, betonte Whatsapp-Manager Zafir Khan zum Start der Funktion am 18. Oktober 2017. Auch Whatsapp selbst oder Facebook hätten keinen Zugriff darauf.

"Facebook-Gesetz" in Kraft getreten | #SocialMedia #Laws #Germany | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Am heutigen 1. Oktober tritt das Netzwerkdurchsetzungsgesetz (NetzDG) in Kraft. Strafbare Inhalte sollen damit schneller aus sozialen Netzwerken verschwinden. Sowohl die Behörden als auch Facebook haben personell bereits aufgestockt.

Am heutigen 1. Oktober tritt das Netzwerkdurchsetzungsgesetz (NetzDG) – oft auch "Facebook-Gesetz" genannt – in Kraft. Das Gesetz soll Anbieter sozialer Netzwerke dazu bringen, "offenkundig strafbare Inhalte" nach spätestens 24 Stunden zu löschen, wenn sie davon Kenntnis haben. Dieser Teil des Gesetzes soll erst nach einer Übergangsphase von drei Monaten angewandt werden.

Für die Prüfung von weniger eindeutig rechtswidrigen Inhalten haben die Plattformbetreiber nun sieben Tage Zeit. Stellt sich heraus, dass die Betreiber systemische Mängel aufweisen, die die Umsetzung des NetzDG verhindern, drohen bis zu 50 Millionen Euro Bußgeld.

Twitter is doubling the length of tweets to 280 characters for some people | #ICT #SocialMedia  | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
For the first time in its 11-year history, Twitter will lift the 140-character limit for tweets — at least for some people.

The company announced Tuesday that it would begin testing a new limit of 280 characters for all languages except Japanese, Chinese, and Korean. The change will only be seen by a small percentage of Twitter users at first before it's potentially made available broadly.

The move will give Twitter users more freedom to express themselves, easing one of the most difficult aspects of using a service that has struggled to grow its audience in recent years.

Das soziale Netzwerk möchte seinen Nutzern mit einer neuen Funktion zu Rendezvous verhelfen. Um Sex geht es dabei nur am Rande.

 

Die Attraktivität von Dating-Plattformen zeichnet sich nicht zuletzt dadurch aus, wie viele Nutzer ein Netzwerk zählt. Es gilt die Regel: Je mehr registrierte User, desto besser. Hat eine Community eine gewisse Größe erreicht, geht es darum, die Nutzer untereinander zu vernetzen. Oder – um es in der Sprache der Dating-Apps zu sagen – zu verkuppeln.

Dass auch Facebook dieses Prinzip vorantreibt, zeigt eine neue Beta-Version von Facebook Messenger. Laut Motherboard.vice.com erhalten ausgewählte Test-Nutzer eine Benachrichtigung, laut der sich mehrere Personen mit einem treffen wollen.

Facebook buys computer vision startup focused on adding objects to video | #Acquisitions #SocialMedia #AR #Fayteq

Facebook has acquired a German company called Fayteq that builds software add-ons for video editing that can remove and add whole objects from captured video using computer vision. The acquisition was first reported by a German startup publication (via Variety) and confirmed to TechCrunch, and could be useful as Facebook pursues additional video filter creation technology, both for its live streaming efforts, and for platforms like Instagram Stories.

Of course, being able to add objects to live video and remove them or cover them over on the fly is also something that can be put to interesting use in the emerging field of augmented reality. Facebook launched an AR platform for its built-in camera feature in April at this year’s F8, with the aim of encouraging developers to build AR experiences for use in Facebook on smartphones, which Mark Zuckerberg has said will be “the first augmented reality platform that becomes mainstream.”

Facebook plant Großangriff auf TV-Sender! Schon im Juni starten Shows und Serien | #SocialMedia  | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Facebook macht Ernst. Schon im Juni sollen zwei Dutzend Shows und Serien starten, die exklusiv für das soziale Netzwerk produziert werden. Dafür hat sich Facebook nun auch prominente Unterstützung ins Boot geholt.


Bewegtbildinhalte sind bei Facebook schon seit einiger Zeit im Trend. Jetzt will Facebook-Chef Mark Zuckerberg noch einen Schritt weiter gehen. Im Juni bringt das Unternehmen nun zwei Dutzend teils aufwändig produzierte Serien und Shows im YouTube-Stil an den Start, wie "Business Insider" berichtet.

 

Demnach lautet die Strategie von Facebook, sowohl hochwertige und längere Shows als auch kurze fünf- bis zehnminütige Shows zu produzieren. Facebook kommentierte die Pläne zunächst nicht.

Like Twitter But Hate the Trolls? Try Mastodon | #SocialMedia #ICT | BUT #Awareness about #CyberSecurity

Like Twitter But Hate the Trolls? Try Mastodon | #SocialMedia #ICT | BUT #Awareness about #CyberSecurity | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Twitter’s been combatting harassment for years. The latest effort: quelling its horde of anonymous, hostile egg accounts. But for many users, Twitter’s abuse problem has long since undermined its value as a platform for creative communication. That’s what makes Mastodon—a free, open-source, and increasingly popular six-month-old Twitter alternative—so intriguing.

Mastodon has created a diverse yet welcoming online environment by doing exactly what Twitter won’t: letting its community make the rules. The platform consists of various user-created networks, called instances, each of which determines its own laws. One instance could ban sexist jokes and Nazi logos, while another might practice radically free speech. (In this way, Mastodon is not unlike a network of discretely moderated message boards crossed with a Tweetdeck-like interface.) Users choose for themselves which instance they want to join and select from a host of privacy and anti-harassment settings.

 

Oh, and the character limit is 500, not 140. In essence, Mastodon is an experiment in whether individually moderated communities can make a social network like Twitter more civil.

Now on Twitter: 140 characters for your replies | Twitter Blogs | #SocialMedia | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

Remember how we told you we were working on ways to let you to express more with 140 characters? Since then, we’ve introduced twoupdates, and today we’re rolling out another. Now, when you reply to someone or a group, those @usernames won’t count toward your Tweet’s 140 characters.

With this change, we’ve simplified conversations in a few ways:

  • Who you are replying to will appear above the Tweet text rather than within the Tweet text itself, so you have more characters to have conversations.
  • You can tap on “Replying to…” to easily see and control who’s part of your conversation.
  • When reading a conversation, you’ll actually see what people are saying, rather than seeing lots of @usernames at the start of a Tweet.

It’s now easier to follow a conversation, so you can focus on what a discussion is about, and who is having it. Also, with all 140 characters for your replies, you have more room to participate in group conversations.

Twitter has committed to a specific timeline for rolling out changes to its Safety features and announced new policies including a ban on hateful display names, and improvements for second-hand “witness reporting” of abuse.

By January Twitter plans to have implemented all the abuse changes outlined in the internal email published by Wired earlier this week, as well as the new ones shared today. The company even apologized for frequently promising improvements but then failing to take action, writing “Far too often in the past we’ve said we’d do better and promised transparency but have fallen short in our efforts.”

Here’s a breakdown of what’s new, beyond the enhancements to existing safety features:

Twitter, the social network that redefined the term "information overload," is working on a feature that'll make it easier to bookmark those cool tweets that deserve a second look. 

Announced by several key Twitter employees, including product VP Keith Coleman, the new feature could be called "save for later."

SEE ALSO: Here's a pretty compelling argument against Twitter's new character limit

According to Coleman, this has been a "top request," and Twitter wants user feedback before they push out a final version of the feature.

Lorsque les citoyens prennent en charge le marketing territorial. Quelques initiatives remarquables

Lorsque les citoyens prennent en charge le marketing territorial. Quelques initiatives remarquables | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Sur le web, le marketing territorial est pris en charge par les multiples organismes mis en place par les communes, les communautés de communes, les villes, les départements, les régions. Il s’agit aussi de la première fonction des Offices du Tourisme.

Mais, depuis plusieurs années grâce au web 2.0 des citoyens se sont aussi lancés bénévolement dans cette mission et affichent avec constance et efficacité des informations concernant leur environnement, en utilisant différents outils du web et des réseaux sociaux. Ils construisent ainsi une image de la vie de leur commune, de leur vallée, de leur ville et participent activement à leur «e-reputation »

Cet article met en valeur quatre exemples de territoires qui depuis plusieurs années bénéficient de cette activité citoyenne, quasi principale de leurs auteurs, ou activité secondaire d‘une activité de principale de veille centrée sur d’autres intérêts.

 

Au Luxembourg,  Gust MEES  gère principalement des sujets centrés sur l’éducation au XXIième siècle (en particulier un blog sur l'éducation rassemblant des interviews avec différents acteurs de l'Éducation nationale du Luxembourg avec une audience de 153.000 visites (au 02/10/2017) et la sécurité informatique.

 

Il a aussi ouvert un sujet illustrant l’information sur la ville et l’état luxembourgeois avec près de 20000 vues de 2200  (au 2/10/2017) scoops sélectionnés.

Ils construisent ainsi une image de la vie de leur commune, de leur vallée, de leur ville et participent activement à leur «e-reputation »

Cet article met en valeur quatre exemples de territoires qui depuis plusieurs années bénéficient de cette activité citoyenne, quasi principale de leurs auteurs, ou activité secondaire d‘une activité de principale de veille centrée sur d’autres intérêts.

 

Au Luxembourg,  Gust MEES  gère principalement des sujets centrés sur l’éducation au XXIième siècle (en particulier un blog sur l'éducation rassemblant des interviews avec différents acteurs de l'Éducation nationale du Luxembourg avec une audience de 153.000 visites (au 02/10/2017) et la sécurité informatique.

 

Il a aussi ouvert un sujet illustrant l’information sur la ville et l’état luxembourgeois avec près de 20000 vues de 2200  (au 2/10/2017) scoops sélectionnés.

Giving you more characters to express yourself.

 

Trying to cram your thoughts into a Tweet – we’ve all been there, and it’s a pain.

 

Interestingly, this isn't a problem everywhere people Tweet. For example, when I (Aliza) Tweet in English, I quickly run into the 140 character limit and have to edit my Tweet down so it fits. Sometimes, I have to remove a word that conveys an important meaning or emotion, or I don’t send my Tweet at all. But when Iku Tweets in Japanese, he doesn’t have the same problem.

 

He finishes sharing his thought and still has room to spare. This is because in languages like Japanese, Korean, and Chinese you can convey about double the amount of information in one character as you can in many other languages, like English, Spanish, Portuguese, or French.

 

We want every person around the world to easily express themselves on Twitter, so we're doing something new: we're going to try out a longer limit, 280 characters, in languages impacted by cramming (which is all except Japanese, Chinese, and Korean).

Twitter to Test Doubling Tweet Length to 280 Characters | #ICT #SocialMedia

Twitter to Test Doubling Tweet Length to 280 Characters | #ICT #SocialMedia | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
SAN FRANCISCO — Twitter’s defining attribute has long been its brevity: 140 characters in a post and no more.

That is now set to change. Twitter said on Tuesday that it would test extending the text limit of a post on its service to 280 characters. (In effect, that would double the length of the first two sentences of this paragraph; those sentences, for the record, add up to 140 characters.)

Twitter said the goal was to eliminate what it views as constraints that keep people from tweeting more frequently. One significant barrier, according to Twitter’s internal research, has been the stringent limit on character count.

“When people don’t have to cram their thoughts into 140 characters and actually have some to spare, we see more people tweeting,” Twitter said in a blog post.

It is a significant moment for the 11-year-old Twitter, which has been trying to figure out how to change the social media service without alienating the people who have embraced its short format.
