Twitter Fights Off the Thought That it's PeakingTwitter has suffered a massive loss in its first published financial results since the social networks highly anticipated US stock market debut last year, and though the company might not have been surprised, punters took a different view, with shares dropping almost 25 percent in value.

Twitter told shareholders it lost $US511 million/$AU573 million in the last three months of last year, that’s despite a doubling of revenue from 12 months ago to a better-than-expected $US243 million/$AU273 Million.

Financials aren’t the only woes the micro-blog are suffering, Twitter seems to be testing a new heavier design and it’s users haven’t been receptive of the changes.

Read the full article »»»»Like it or not, Facebook is about to make its new profile format –  Timeline – compulsory. Over the next few weeks, every Facebook account will be updated with the new-look profile, presenting a scrapbook of all of your past status updates and photographs.

The latest upgrade to Facebook has security experts warning people to clean up their online history or risk having embarrassing photos, comments and status updates resurface. Facebook will not say exactly when, but sometime in the next month all user profile pages will transition to the new Timeline setting.

The changes mean that every post, photo and action in a Facebook user’s history will be available for friends to easily view in reverse chronological order. Facebook users have had the option to use Timeline since last year.

The problem with Facebook is it keeps changing its default settings, you might not care about the change right now, in 20 years when you’re standing for political office? Clearly social media sites like Facebook have granted us a much more transparent society. Graham Cluley, a social media security commentator says “Facebook is encouraging users to enter even more personal details about themselves and their life experiences, and making it simpler for others to view the information.” Read the full article »»»»

FACEBOOKIn a blog entry on Thursday, Facebook stated that about 600,000 log-ins every day are compromised. In it’s National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, under update/10150335022240766. Facebook claims to have locked it’s site down with new clever security policies, the best of which is Call a Friend? Controlling how you share content on Facebook is quite complex and will probably make your head hurt, but it’s essential that you take a good look at the settings and decide for yourself what you want to share and with whom, from where. Whenever Facebook opens it’s considerable mouth, it seems to do the exact opposite to the words that fall out.

The infographic Facebook has posted on it’s blog and  scribd.com introducing it’s new security features, seems to indicate that Facebook in-fact has a considerable security problem?. Sophos dug deep into the numbers and pulled out a a stat showing 0.06% of 1 billion logins per day are compromised, 600,000 compromised users? Less than 0.5% of Facebook users experience spam on any given day.  READ MORE

The social network is quietly retracting a cookie that continued to report your Facebook user ID even after you “logged out” of the site. But it’s not sorry about five other cookies that persist after you sign off. What, you didn’t think Facebook would ever let you actually for real seriously 100 percent sign out, did you? When Australian programmer Nik Cubrilovic blogged on Sunday about how Facebook logout didn’t seem to actually, um, well – log out! Facebook wen into immediate damage control mode, claiming that: Blah Blah Blah, except that Facebook has a tracking feature its CEO literally calls ‘Facebook Across the Web‘  Which does exactly that, track you across the internet, anyplace you go, Facebook goes with you (calm down! clearly only if you login to your Facebook account, or use Facebook on your mobile device ) In Australia, the office of the Privacy Commissioner says it has begun a preliminary inquiry into Facebook’s conduct. Read the full article »»»»
