Google Plus ganha comunidades semelhantes às do Orkut

Google Plus ganha comunidades semelhantes às do Orkut | Working Stuff | Scoop.it

O Google anunciou nesta quinta-feira a chegada da uma ferramenta de comunidades ao Google+ semelhante às do Orkut, primeira investida da gigante da internet em rede sociais e por muitos anos a queridinha dos brasileiros. No Google+, porém, as comunidades ganharam novas funcionalidades, como a possibilidade de iniciar hangouts e realizar bate-papos em vídeo com membros do grupo e a capacidade de compartilhar a comunidade pelo botão "+1".

Com o anúncio das comunidades, o Google divulgou também números globais da rede social. Segundo Vic Gundotra, vice-presidente sênior da companhia, o Google+ é a rede social com o crescimento mais rápido da história. "Mais de 500 milhões de pessoas fizeram upgrade, 235 milhões estão ativas no Google (marcando aplicativos do Google Play com +1, participando de hangouts no Gmail, escrevendo comentários nos Mapas...), sendo que 135 milhões apresentam atividade no stream", afirmou em comunicado.

“It’s true — I saw it on Facebook”

"When my cousins' Facebook timelines make no meaningful distinction between fact-checked magazine stories and flat-out lies from an AdSense scammer or a Fox News propagandist, the means by which meaningful public discourse can happen isn't only damaged, it's broken."

Turkey Coup: How Facetime and social media helped Erdogan foil the plot

Turkey Coup: How Facetime and social media helped Erdogan foil the plot | Working Stuff | Scoop.it

Friday night, during the most chaotic sequence of events, Erdoğan gave an interview via a video chat service on his iPhone, where he asserted the legitimacy of his government’s authority and called on the Turkish people to take to the streets against the coup. The picture of him talking via Facetime is already one of the iconic images of the night.

(...) In the past, taking control of the national TV or radio stations would have been enough to eliminate the threat of the leader speaking to the nation, at least for the crucial hours of transition. Instead, Erdoğan was able to connect to broadcasters via Facetime—specifically, to CNN—and get his message out. Once the word was out, it reinforced the ability of services like Periscope and Facebook Live to generate common knowledge about the situation.

Five tools to protect your social media accounts

Five tools to protect your social media accounts | Working Stuff | Scoop.it

Are your social media accounts safe from hackers and other cybersecurity threats? Keep your information protected with these five tools.

----------------------------

Journalists, both mainstream and citizen, exploit social media for both personal and professional reasons. But ordinary users, journalists and bloggers are also prone to social media-related risks – mainly, loss of password by social engineering, brute force or dictionary attack method, unauthorized access and hacking. These risks stretch from innocent fun to serious reputational damage, financial troubles and even legal persecution in the event that a hacked account is used for committing a crime. 


Journalists may additionally suffer from their sources being compromised and sensitive information released. Some effective measures to stay safe online include customized privacy settings, mindful personal data sharing and a “think-before-you-click” policy, but these five software tools can also help improve your social media protection

The Rio Olympics will have some of the smartest sports cameras ever | Working Stuff | Scoop.it

A Getty Images decidiu equipar todos os fotógrafos oficiais dos Jogos Olímpicos 2016, no Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, com câmaras 360º. De acordo com o Mashable, a tecnologia não é exatamente uma novidade para a empresa, que já teria testado o mesmo formato nos Jogos Olímpicos em Londres de 2012 e até tem uma coleção de imagens disponíveis para o Oculus Rift. No entanto, Dawn Airey, CEO da Getty Images, refere que “o formato e o modelo de negócio ainda estão a dar os primeiros passos”. A verdade é que cada vez mais a realidade virtual está a mudar o storytelling em 2016. Razões suficientes para a empresa decidir lançar um negócio dedicado a produção de imagens e filmes em 360 graus já este ano.

I have recently wondered – what is the next big thing when it comes to social platform usage. What are the social networks to watch and where we should be paying attention more. As an entrepreneur and business owner I can't afford to get this wrong. Or even worst – put the resources where they get wasted. Thankfully I came across the 107 page report by We are Social and Hootsuit. Here are some of the most important elements of it and my interpretation.

What "Safety Check" Reveals About Facebook's Changing Role

What "Safety Check" Reveals About Facebook's Changing Role | Working Stuff | Scoop.it

Last week, within hours of deadly terror attacks in Istanbul and Dhaka, Facebook activated its Safety Check feature, marking roughly three dozen times that the company has let people in the area of a disaster instantly tell their friends and relatives if they were safe.

But after Sunday's deadly truck bombing in Baghdad, striking a crowded shopping district and killing at least 250, a secondary outrage grew online: Facebook didn't activate the feature for users in Baghdad until the following day, July 4th, at 6:55pm local time.

"The Facebook’s safety check-in for Baghdad comes about 30 hours late from the actual explosions," Razbar Sulaiman, a hackathon organizer and UN specialist who lives in Iraqi Kurdistan, wrote in a blog post, echoing frustrations on social media. "Did it seriously take 30 hours after the explosions to create/consider the safety check-in? I'm extremely disappointed."
