Socialmeter.me – Fun twitter statistics or just spam?

By | May 3rd, 2013|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , |

Socialmeter.me is an application that apparently tells you how many hours you have spent on Twitter. Calculations are not actually real - they say that they are based on account age, followers, friends and tweets. The result is then tweeted to your followers. Edit, See update below - due to suspension and blocking by twitter its now appearing as SocialTracker.me  Socialmeter.me not exactly accurate. Surprisingly my amount on hours on time were virtually the same as someone with half the amount of followers, and a 10th the amount of friends (ppl they follow back) as me, so I'm not sure how that works Is Socialmeter.me Spam Before you rush of to see what yours is, let me tell you a bit about it. First I checked on Twitter to see if anyone was talking about this application, and low and behold, all I saw were complaints about "how to stop the spam" So, yes, you got it, I wanted to try it out. First you have to let it into your twitter (auth) account, of course or how will it know how [...]

What is a LinkedIn LION It stands for Linked In Open Networker, it basically means that they will accept invites from anyone, even if they don't know them, where as LinkedIn always used to be the place that you never, ever connected with people you didn't already know.  However things in social networking have changed somewhat since the old days and many people want to grow their networks and reach out to new contacts.  That being said, there are still people that will hit the I don't know this person button and that could get you into trouble on many networks.

Did Anonymous turn Facebook into a PORN site?

By | November 15th, 2011|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , , , , |

We saw a while back a video apparently posted by Anonymous on Youtube that boasted that they were going to hack Facebook to protest about Facebook's lack of privacy. Anonymous Facebook November 5 attack : youtube video message : hack One comment made was that deleting your Facebook account is impossible - even if you delete your facebook account all of your information is recoverable at anytime -  they explained in the video that they are taking action against Facebook on November 5th 2011 Tweets on Twitter later came from people evidently linked to anonymous saying that this was not true. Other reports said that the videos were fake. On the 5th of November we checked Facebook wondering what we would see and Facebook seemed the same, everything was still there, nothing unusual. Anonymous #Operation ''Fawkes Virus'' Released on Facebook. We then saw another video on the 10th of November which explained about #Operation "Fawkes Virus" a worm that "they" said has been released on Facebook that sends malicious links and gains access to your account. Well... over the past few days it seems that Facebook has [...]

Surprise, Surprise -  there appears to be a few fake Google plus invite pages flying around facebook at the moment offering immediate access to Google+ who's social network is currently running in beta with a limited amount of people.  I say that but a report from Mashable says that  there are now more than 10 million google+ users. Every now and then Google opens up the network for a little while so that you can send out invites and people can accept, but its not for long and if you miss it you have to wait for the next one, when two come a long at once, oh no - that's buses sorry. This  facebook page hasn't been around for very long but already it has 30k likes - I read some of the posts on there and one person said, Oh no this is a scam, can I still have a google+ invite though ? There are hundred of comments giving out email addresses (nice) for anyone to see, I didn't "like" the page but I could still see everyone's [...]

We first saw this exact e-mail years ago from the FBI or CIA saying that they have logged your IP address on 40 illegal Websites, and it seems to be back in force again. It used to contain a virus called Sober, but now it seems to contain malware in the style of a zip file that pretends its a virus to get at your credit card details. The hackers are just trying to scare (scare-ware) you into opening the file. The Spam email looks like this. .gov email address usually with lots of numbers.... Subject: You visit illegal websites Message: We  have logged your IP Adress on more than 40 illegal websites Please answer our questions on the form attached. Attachment: document.zipThe FBI are often having their name used in cyber attacks  via email scams - malware attacks and even telephone scams. There is another one also doing the rounds at the moment regarding  Osama bin Laden, claiming it contains photos or videos of course it doesn't; it probably contains a virus or malicious software likely to take over your computer, and steal personal data.
