Facebook to Users: We Own You

Facebook to Users: We Own You | Transformations in Business & Law | Scoop.it

In connection with a class action settlement, Facebook last week made "proposed" changes to its data use policy and statement of rights and responsibilities. In an official announcement,Facebook published the revisions alongside the original text in attempt to be clearer on how the social network uses the information shared on Facebook.While the court settlement had Facebook agreeing to "provide greater disclosure and transparency as to when and how member's names and profile pictures are re-published, and to give them additional control over those events," the official Facebook announcement gave users exactly seven days from August 29 to provide feedback on what they saw by leaving comments on the post. After the holiday weekend, today is Day 6. Read more at: http://constantech.blogspot.com/2013/09/facebook-to-users-we-own-you.html

Yahoo Gets More U.S. Visitors Than Google for First Time Since 2011 | Transformations in Business & Law | Scoop.it

Zurker - a new social network with a difference

Zurker - a new social network with a difference | Transformations in Business & Law | Scoop.it

Zurker - a new social network:

http://www.zurker.net/i-271732-iaxgtugifc

My first reaction - "do we need yet another social network?"

After reading about the philosophy of Zurker, my answer was "yes" - because it is one that is owned by the network members and responsive to needs of the network members, rather than being a centralized, corporate, profit-oriented, juggernaut.

Zurker is literally a member-owned application.  You actually get shares in the company and so can profit from its growth.

And Zurker is driven by democracy. It's new - and still developing. Instead of changes being introduced top-down (whether you wanted the change or not) Zurker seeks out your ideas and feedback, so that their development team can develop the social application most in tune with what users actually want.

And it's free, of course.  Check it out here:

Edward Snowden: Unencrypted Email Isn't Safe

Edward Snowden: Unencrypted Email Isn't Safe | Transformations in Business & Law | Scoop.it

According to NSA leaker Edward Snowden, you should assume that no email is safe, especially if it's not encrypted.

"I was surprised to realize that there were people in news organizations who didn’t recognize any unencrypted message sent over the Internet is being delivered to every intelligence service in the world," Snowden told Peter Maass, a freelance journalists who profiled filmmaker Laura Potraisfor the New York Times Magazine. (Potrais, along with The Guardian's Glenn Greenwald, is one of the journalists Snowden initially contacted.)

SEE ALSO: Is It the Dawn of the Encryption App?

Snowden, who is in an undisclosed location in Russia, the country that gave him temporary asylum, especially criticized journalist who don't use secure means of communicating with their sources.

In the wake of this year’s disclosures, it should be clear that unencrypted journalist-source communication is unforgivably reckless," he told Maass over encrypted chat.

New York regulators launch investigation of BitCoin

New York regulators launch investigation of BitCoin | Transformations in Business & Law | Scoop.it

A New York regulator Monday announced a probe into virtual currencies like Bitcoin, saying they could be used by drug traffickers and gun runners and threaten US national security.

As part of the probe, according to a person familiar with the matter, the New York Department of Financial Services has sent subpoenas seeking information assistance from 22 companies investing or trading in Bitcoins, an online currency not tied to any one country or regulator that exploded in popularity earlier this year.

The subpoenas included major venture capital groups as well as money exchange and transfer firms that have adopted the virtual currency.

Which should I leave first, Twitter or Facebook? | Transformations in Business & Law | Scoop.it

Paul Mason:

Which do I leave first: Facebook or Twitter? I've been mulling that question for about a year now, but it always seemed theoretical. On top of that, it would have been a no-brainer. Twitter is essential for work, while Facebook – increasingly burdened by adverts, security issues and intellectual property disputes – is not.

Twitter is the first global conversation – but it is becoming morally depopulated. We need radical, collective action to save it

HR Magazine - HR leaders need to engage with big data before it engages them

HR Magazine - HR leaders need to engage with big data before it engages them | Transformations in Business & Law | Scoop.it

In the past HR directors’ concerns around data were mostly around the security of employee information. This led to a fairly simple conversation with IT: do our systems keep our employee data secure enough?     

 

Today's world is much less tidy: employee data may live on company IT or in a 'cloud' system - possibly based in another legal jurisdiction and probably managed by a third party; the nature of the data held may be very different, and the ways in which an employer can make use of it are far more complex.
