    Avoiding Scams and Trolls on Twitter

    By, Aaron Stern


    Not long ago, Twitter was a novelty social media site that average users thought was silly. Now the microblogging tool is a vital news source and publishing platform, letting anyone share information and opinions from almost anywhere. Almost everyone is on it now, from your favorite celebrity to your parents.


    But as is the case with every emergent trend on the Internet, Twitter is also populated by scammers and so-called ‘trolls,’ people who harass and provoke others with posts that range from the annoying to the profane. And what’s more, that security risk is essentially built into Twitter — its public-facing nature allows anyone to follow or mention anyone else, meaning users have little control over who can read their tweets, or tweets about them. Specifically blocking individual users is the only ingrained privacy protection. Avoiding the pitfalls of Twitter is critical to critical to keeping your devices and your identity safe and secure.

    How to Choose the Best E2.0 Tool for the Task. Guest- Bill Ives

    in Business

    Are you tweeting when you could be microblogging? Emailing when wiki-ing makes more sense? With so many choices out there, it’s tempting to pick one social media tool and use it all the time. Don’t do it, says Bill Ives. You get better results if you choose a method based on the outcome you want. In today’s show, Bill talks about how the medium you choose for your message—words versus pictures, for example—influences the way people process information, draw conclusions and solve problems. He shares specific examples of how to use wikis, blogs and microblogs to get work done faster and better. Bill, who has a Ph.D. in educational psychology, researched the effects of media on cognition at Harvard University. He has 25 years of experience as a consultant focused on business applications for emerging technologies. Bill writes for FastForward, The AppGap, and his own blog, Portals and KM.
