Browser plug-in and website warn about data harvesting by Facebook apps

Browser plug-in and website warn about data harvesting by Facebook apps | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Secure.me has launched a website and a browser plug-in designed to make Facebook users aware of the personal information that gets harvested by third-party applications.

 

Privacy matters!

 

The App Advisor Security Network website has profiles on more than 500,000 third-party Facebook applications that describe the user data they collect, what actions they can take and whether they are considered unsafe. The application profiles also display user ratings.

 

Meanwhile, the App Advisor browser extension, which works with Safari, Firefox and Chrome, gets activated when users visit either application sites or call up an application's page in the Facebook App Center.

 

In those instances, the browser extension displays a pop-up alert that informs users of the reputation level of the application and gives them the option to call up more detailed information.

Nik's Learning Technology Blog: How I use social media for my professional development

Nik's Learning Technology Blog: How I use social media for my professional development | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

Nik's Learning Technology Blog:

 

How I use social media for my professional development


This has been a common theme to many of the presentations, workshops, webinars and seminars that I have been asked to do over the last few years, but however many times I try to present on this subject I never really feel that I get the message across as clearly and persuasively as I would like.

 

So here it is. This my own attempt to outline my digital media learning experience, or at least part of it.

I’ll split this into 3 sections which I’ll call


- Information in - This is how and where I find information

 

- Information processing - This is how I process, engage with and capture information

 

- Information out - This is how I share what I’ve learned or discovered

Facebook given one week to stop breaching privacy laws

Facebook given one week to stop breaching privacy laws | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Facebook has until September 4th to stop giving user info to third parties without explicit consent. Meanwhile, one observer says privacy trickery is built right into the App Center's design.

 

Facebook may be facing legal action if it doesn't comply by Tuesday 4 September, according to news reports.

 

===> Privacy laws are tighter in the EU, and Germans like to employ them. <===

Twitter as a Metacognitive Support Device | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

Integrating social media into academia is not a novel idea. And since you are reading this, chances are you probably have been utilizing some feature of social media in the classroom for years. What is more interesting is asking why academia should exploit social media and, more specifically, Twitter.

View from the IT desk: Securing social networking in the workplace

View from the IT desk: Securing social networking in the workplace | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
In this age of "instant information" is it shortsighted to block social networking sites within an organisation purely because of stories in the press relating to scams, misuse and threats?

 

Is it time for a re-think?

With the increase in the number of organisations embracing Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) this trend is only going to grow.

So perhaps now is the time to look at educating users about the issues, and empowering them to use these tools responsibly, rather than trying to block access; after all, this may turn into a battle you can’t win.

 

So, how do you educate users about social networking sites and the issues around them?

 

- Passwords


Teach users about good password management including password strength (difficult to guess but easy to remember), password security (keep it to yourself) and using different passwords for different sites (a password is only as strong as the weakest system you use it on).


- Scams, clickjacking and fake apps


Teach users how to spot something that is attempting to drive traffic, harvest data or steal identities. If people are aware of what can happen they may be less inclined to click anything-and-everything in the hope of a free gift.

 

- Sensible sharing


Social networking sites can be restricted to allow only a limited number of people to access data and information. If you have a target audience, do you need to tell ‘everyone’ or only those you wish to educate? Teaching people how to amend these settings to protect themselves will help you protect any corporate data you wish to place on there.

 

- Monitoring (for employees)


Social networks send emails relating to access, posts and mentions. Monitoring these will highlight any potential misuse which can be stopped before it gets too severe.

 

- Monitoring (for employers)


Regular checks of internet usage will show any misuse of social networking sites. All employees should be aware you are monitoring internet access and that misuse will be investigated. This should act as a deterrent for anyone who wishes to misuse the privilege and use corporate resources to "check their CityVille..." or "click that link for a free iPad..."
