Selling You on Facebook

Selling You on Facebook | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Many popular Facebook apps obtain sensitive information about users—and users' friends—so don't be surprised if details about your religious, political and even sexual preferences start popping up in unexpected places.

 

Still, some app developers say they are seeking less personal data than they could. Rick Marini, chief executive of the professional-networking app "BranchOut," said that more than 20 million people have signed up for the app. What users may not realize is that professional information about all of their friends is also now a part of the app's database.

 

===> That lets "BranchOut" tout that it has more than 400 million profiles. <===

How To Use Twitter For Finding A Job | twitter how to | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

Twitter has become one of the most, if not the most, common ways for people to keep in touch and share information. Just by making your usual tweets you can keep friends and family informed of your life and potential job providers aware of your situation. I know this may be a new concept for some, but you would be well informed to learn how to use Twitter for finding a job.

 

But, what do you do if you do not have a massively extended network of friends on Twitter?

Use an app like TwitJobSearch.

 

This will help you keep your job search information straight, find jobs openings posted on Twitter and actually apply for them directly! This handy little program will help you divide information into categories and save the jobs you are interested in.

How I became a convert to Twitter • The teaching and education community on Twitter is truly inspirational...

 

Twitter is a fantastic collaborative tool. As teachers, how often do we get to visit other schools? In my experience, very rarely. Twitter has enabled me to collaborate with teachers in schools across the country. Combine this with cloud services such as DropBox and Google Docs and you can create and share resources and ideas quickly and easily.

 

The site is also a great place for discussion. It is amazing how creative you can be in 140 characters. Teachers, academics, technologists and other experts come together on Twitter to chat and discuss a whole range of topics – you can follow and contribute to these discussions by using hash tags.
