What to do if your social media account has been hacked or hijacked

What to do if your social media account has been hacked or hijacked | TechLib | Scoop.it
Almost everyone has had their social media accounts compromised at least once in the past, where their accounts automatically share scam links to friends and followers. 

 

===> Today’s attack on Buffer <=== showed just how easy it is for a reputable company to cause its users to become victims of social media attacks, despite having done nothing wrong.

 

It’s hard to know what to do in these situations so we’ve prepared a primer on how you can deal with attacks if  your social media account were to be compromised.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, May 6, 10:19 AM

"Today, in honor of Teacher Appreciation Day, we’re announcing a preview of Classroom, a new, free tool in theGoogle Apps for Education suite. It helps teachers create and organize assignments quickly, provide feedback efficiently, and communicate with their classes with ease. Classroom is based on the principle that educational tools should be simple and easy to use, and is designed to give teachers more time to teach and students more time to learn. 

With Classroom, you'll be able to:

  • Create and collect assignments: Classroom weaves together Google Docs, Drive and Gmail to help teachers create and collect assignments paperlessly. They can quickly see who has or hasn't completed the work, and provide direct, real-time feedback to individual students.
  • Improve class communications: Teachers can make announcements, ask questions and comment with students in real time—improving communication inside and outside of class.
  • Stay organized: Classroom automatically creates Drive folders for each assignment and for each student. Students can easily see what’s due on their Assignments page."

Nathan Chasse's curator insight, April 1, 7:48 AM

This series of pictures shows the extremely rapid growth of Dubai. An extremely wealthy city, the oil richness of Dubai has allowed for it to grow at an unprecedented rate from a desert to a sprawling metropolis. Such an impressive city springing up in a desolate desert speaks to how much resources can dictate where and how city growth occurs.

Jessica Rieman's curator insight, April 14, 2:13 PM

 Dubai has drastically changed throughtout it's time before the globalization boom and was one of the only cities to be impacted positively by globalization. As you can see from the depiction that Dubai in 1991 was a deserted place and then in 2005 it transformed into becoming somewhat of a city. In 2012 this city drastically transformed in order to help the globalization process and the whole city in general was trasformed into a mega city.

Inventive Games That Teach Kids About Empathy and Social Skills | TechLib | Scoop.it
Play is nothing if not social. Games organize play, allowing us to wrangle it and use it to experiment with the world. When we play games, more often than not, it's us under the microscope. But there's a trend in design toward video games that build social skills and encourage players to reflect on themselves and their relationships. Here are a few games that do just that.
