Twitter has deleted some users DM's - Direct Messages. Its okay, its just a twitter bug, they do know about it ....

Do UK Bloggers need to comply to the new EU Cookie Regulations

By | May 14th, 2012|Categories: Tips for Bloggers|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

I know many people are confused about the EU cookie regulations, you are not alone. We are all confused and amazed that it is even a law.   I will try to keep this short and simple as I know you guys get bored with lots of text, however it won't be easy. Some still think its not a real law - this is because, the media has not made much noise about the Cookie regulations so here are a few links that might help BBC -  The Telegraph - The information commissioners Office <- Information from here will be in blue text. We can only hope and pray that this ridiculous law is overturned, but as it stands - it IS a law already. Firstly can I say cookies are not viruses - there is nothing wrong with cookies, we all use them, most websites store them for one reason or another, I will explain more further down. The Cookie law came from The Privacy and Electronic Communication Regulations, PECR -  which were changed on 26 May 2011 to include Regulation 6 which are the new regulations.

There is a new Facebook scam that promises you a Free Pair of Oakleys Sunglasses. Its not from Oakley sadly, so no free sunglasses, just a hoax. Slightly different to all of the other survey scams we have discussed. The message appears on your friends wall, so you think it must be safe he has done it, wrong! To celebrate the Summer, Oakley is giving away free shades to all Facebook users. Its a two step process this time where you have to first share the link and then like the page - Liking the page takes you to a survey that asks for your personal information, this is something you should never put in a survey anyway. As we've discussed before the reason behind this scam is that the scammer gets paid for every survey completed. As writing this it seems that Facebook may have blocked the survey so that is one good thing but people are still sharing the link. Which in itself at the moment is harmless but I assume it won't be long until the scammer links it [...]
