Social Media for Filmmakers & Artists | Why Infographics Don’t Work on Facebook (And How to Fix Them) | Social Media | Scoop.it
Everybody loves infographics, but nobody loves the way they (don't) work on Facebook. None of the aspect ratios of Facebook images fit the tall and narrow shape of infographics. Facebook’s thumbnails reduce infographics to matchsticks.

A Viral Pin's Family Tree - PinLeague

A Viral Pin's Family Tree - PinLeague | Social Media | Scoop.it
Ever wonder where a viral pin originates? How many people pinned it before it took off? How long did it take for the pin to go viral?  We wondered, too! So, we mapped out Dan Ashbach's most popular pin and found quite the family tree.
Reid Rosefelt's insight:

I don't know why people say a pin on Pinterest only lasts a month.  It lasts indefinitely--as long as Pinterest allows it to be found in search.

9 Tips For Keeping Your Internet Use Private

9 Tips For Keeping Your Internet Use Private | Social Media | Scoop.it

Many people are concerned about online privacy. And, conversely, many more are not, freely sharing any and everything on their favorite social networks, paying little attention to their mobile app settings, and happily letting Google track each keyword that they search.

It’s easy to get paranoid about all this stuff, but it does pay to be a little careful when using the internet, particularly when it comes to your personal safety. And while Twitter holds pride of place as one of the safest social networks, by taking the time to educate yourself on the security and privacy settings within your profile, being mindful of which third-party apps you allow access to your account and ensuring that you aren’t making it easy for burglars by constantly telling the world when you’re not at home, you can rest assured that you’re doing everything you can to keep your presence safe on Twitter.

 

This infographic proposes 9 tips for keeping your internet usage private.

Google Reserves the Right to Be Evil | Craig Aaron Blog | Huff Post

Google Reserves the Right to Be Evil | Craig Aaron Blog | Huff Post | Social Media | Scoop.it

Everyone's favorite Silicon Valley behemoth has some explaining to do.

As journalist-turned-entrepreneur Ryan Singel details over at Wired, Google appears to be turning its back on the open Internet.

 

At issue is the tech giant's Google Fiber high-speed Internet. Language in the terms of service for this ultra-fast and highly touted broadband experiment in Kansas City prohibits customers from using servers on the network.

 

When the Google legal department wrote these restrictive terms it likely looked at language crafted by other ISPs, like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon, which take a heavy-handed approach in restricting users' activity.

 

Google's language was ostensibly written to stop businesses from trying to pay residential prices to run a bunch of high-capacity servers and suck up all the bandwidth.

 

But Singel argues that Google's terms would actually prohibit individual users from using their computers to do all kinds of things that pose no harm to the network:

 

Google's legally binding Terms of Service outlaw Google Fiber customers from running their own mail server, using a remotely accessible media server, SSHing into a home computer from work to retrieve files, running a Minecraft server for friends to share, using a Nest thermometer, using a nanny camera to watch over a childcare provider or using a Raspberry Pi to host a WordPress blog.

 

Now let's be clear: Google hasn't actually been caught blocking any of these activities yet.

 

And let's also be clear: As Karl Bode notes in his own sharp critique, all ISPs have buried restrictions like this in their fine print.

 

But wasn't Google supposed to be different? The company literally markets Google Fiber as "a different kind of Internet."
