Facebook Is Shutting Down Its API For Giving Your Friends’ Data To Apps | Privacy | BIG DATA

Facebook Is Shutting Down Its API For Giving Your Friends’ Data To Apps | Privacy | BIG DATA | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

It was always kind of shady that Facebook let you volunteer your friends' status updates, check-ins, location, interests and more to third-party apps. 


Overall, the changes could boost confidence in Facebook’s platform and the social network itself, which has struggled in the past with a reputation for spotty privacy. Cross says the conversion rate on people logging in with Facebook has increased 11 percent and believes this means “More people feel comfortable logging in with Facebook.”

Thought your private phone photos weren’t on Facebook? Think again…

Thought your private phone photos weren’t on Facebook? Think again… | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
This time, the problem was one of confidentiality, not availability.

Simply put, he found that, if you had Facebook's Photo Sync feature turned on, then any app with permission to access photos on your phone could access your synced photos, too.

Photo Sync means that whenever you take photos with your phone (and that includes screenshots, by the way), Facebook's app automatically uploads them to Facebook's cloud in case you want to publish them online later.

We can't think why that's a good idea, but many people seem to find the feature useful because:

You get an automatic backup of every photo.
Uploaded photos are private by default, so they aren't visible to other people until you want them to be.
It makes it convenient to share photos later on.
Laxman's bug was the fact that apps other than Facebook's own could read those synced photos back from the cloud.

Obviously, if you've authorised an app to access the photos on your device, you have already accepted the risk of allowing that app to do unsavoury things with private snapshots you might take.

So this is not an earth-moving bug, but it's definitely a security hole.

Twitter and Google Team Up for Better Tweet Search | Social Media | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

Twitter is constantly moving. That’s part of the allure of the social network. But sometimes you want to dig up a tweet you saw and of course you go to the place where you search for everything: Google.

Today, Twitter announced that it was giving Google access to its firehose of data in order to make finding all those tweets. First reported by Bloomberg yesterday, tweets will start showing up in Google search results as soon as they are posted to the social network.

FOMO: fear of missing out.


The quest for the '100 club'

The teens and tweens also agreed there is a constant -- and at times anxiety-inducing -- fixation with likes.

"People will be like, 'Oh, are you in the 100 club?' " Sadie said of getting 100 or more likes for a post.
