We all love images, they give life to our blog or our text, they are noticed and remembered.  So what images can you use on your Blog?   Images break up a big block of text and make it look attractive. People love colours and beauty, its our nature, and its also our nature to share.  But are we within the law when we share these images? No, we are breaking the law There are so many great photos or pictures on the internet, being posted on Facebook, Google+ and many other blogs and websites, that we think that it must be a free for all and if someone else has shared the image then so can we, but a lot of the time we actually can't.  Or we share things hoping the previous person has shared correctly.  If it doesn't have credit on it, take care.  I think we've all been caught out on this - its a dangerous area and there are rules.  People have been charge thousands of pounds by Getty images, for not paying for or attribution images [...]

LinkedIn have now confirmed that some of the passwords were hacked today.

Members that have accounts associated with the compromised passwords will notice that their LinkedIn account password is no longer valid. These members will also receive an email from LinkedIn with instructions on how to reset their passwords. There will not be any links in these emails.
