Could Search Social Media Optimization be a thing of the Future? I Hope Not 0

Could Search Social Media Optimization be a thing of the Future? I Hope Not

I was pretty complacent today. That is, until I read an article today that just got my blood boiling. It all spawned on a simple comment: Search Engine Optimization (SEO) will become Social Media Optimization (SMO). Oh my god! Why in the world would we want that? Granted, we can get new information from Twitter and Facebook easily. Friends report on stuff and pass it along. That works great for I can be informed AND find out what people are doing right now or who’s in a relationship. However, to search on this data? I don’t think so. There are so many reasons why. First of all, it wouldn’t be SMO – it would be SSMEO (Search Social Media Engine Optimization), or just SSMO. Secondly, SSMO would have a shelf life of 7 days at the most. The amount of people reporting on the same thing would make...

FTC and the Twitter Hacks 0

FTC and the Twitter Hacks

From Merriam-Webster, one of the oldest meanings of the word “hack,” dating from the early 1700s: 1 : working for hire especially with mediocre professional standards 2 : performed by, suited to, or characteristic of a hack It was not so much that Twitter was hacked. It seems, instead, that Twitter had hacks. The Guardian reports the FTC has reached settlement with Twitter over security breaches involving users’ data. No fines were assessed, but an outside auditor must review Twitter’s security practices for the next ten years and Twitter is enjoined from making false statements about its security practices for 20 years. (Personally, I think the bloom will be off the Tweet long before then.) Hackers (the geeky kind, that is) gained access to Twitter users’ data because of poor security practices by Twitter employees. The short version is that Twitter employees with various levels of administrative rights...

Five Ways to Get Your Twitter or Facebook Noticed (or at least, not annoying)

Recently, I have been seeing some really annoying posts on Twitter or Facebook. With Twitter, I see a lot of cryptic @ and # messages and with Facebook – well, some of them are just annoying.

So when someone likes the group, I see: Joe Somebody likesI wanna be cool-I wanna be cool-I wanna be cool-I wanna be cool-I wanna be cool-I wanna be cool-I wanna be cool-I wanna be cool-I wanna be cool-I wanna be cool-I wanna be cool-I wanna be cool-I wanna be cool-I wanna be cool-I wanna be cool (I made that group up because the group that I see has a profane word in the title – That, and I don’t want you to like that group…) If you want your Twitter or Facebook posts noticed, here are...

Twitter Malware “Funniest Video” Attack 0

Twitter Malware “Funniest Video” Attack

Beware of tweets telling you that haha this is the funniest video ive EVER SEEN! The Guardian reports that a malware attack using that tagline is spreading through Twitter. Following the link installs keylogging malware designed to capture user names and passwords for online banking sites. The Guardian story links to an F-Secure page which has dozens of sample tweets pushing the malware. The malicious URL is a bit.ly link. The story also includes this hint–this is why I decided to post about the story: If you need to check the final destination for a bit.ly URL, it’s easy with bit.ly links: add a + to the link you’re offered (eg http://bit.ly/b6Z3BC+, which shows the statistics for the URL for the dangerous site).
