Regulators shut down global PC 'tech support' scam | Politics and Law - CNET News - 0 views

  •  
    Scareware. Yes, it is a term. Scaring people into thinking they have a virus. Knowledge is power and it will also save you money. Being educated about computers pays over your life. It is time for all of us to be educated and savvy. I know someone taken by this scam.

    "English-speaking consumers in the United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, and the U.K. were targeted in the global scam, regulators said. Most of the scammers were based in India, but some also came from the U.S. and U.K.
    The scam involved cold callers who claimed to work for major technology companies, such as Microsoft or Google, and who told consumers they had viruses on their PCs, according to regulators. The callers would attempt to dupe users into giving them remote access to their computers, locking the user out while attempting to "fix" the malware that the scammer claimed was on the machine."

Facebook Family Safety Center - 3 views

  •  
    The Facebook family safety center has information on safety. I still feel it is very convoluted and very confusing but it does have some information for educators and parents on the site.

  •  
    Its about how younger kids are getting accounts when they are only like 11 years old. They say that it could damage the children's brains and relationships with one and another. Some kids create their own account without asking their parents permission. Others say that the children try be more older than what they are to get an account.

    Cell phone etiquette is just as important as important as internet etiquette. Being respectful is important, especially when on the internet because you never know how your words could affect someone else.

U.S. Underwrites Internet Detour Around Censors Abroad - NYTimes.com - 0 views

  •  
    Some countries have a lot more internet filtering than we do. The United States lets people post what they want and say what they want online. Even if later on in life it might come back to them badly, it's still allowed. Other countries are a lot more strict. In some countries, if you type and publish a blog online that might be offensive, you'll get arrested. Second there are some places like Burma that haven't had internet since 2007. These are examples of how different other countries are from us and how global awareness varies in many places.

Facebook Increasingly Becomes a Helpful Tool for Employers in Job Interviews | Moneylan... - 6 views

  •  
    It is legal for a prospective employer during a job interview to ask you to log into your facebook page and click through your friends only posts, photos, and messages. This is a very important topic for digital citizens to understand.

    This is an important article. I'm going to discuss it with my Digiteen class this morning and have them comment here.
  •  
    I don't think that is fair. The employer has no right to be a part of their personal life. Although, they need to know about what they say on the internet. I would not want someone i don't know looking at my profile page.
  •  
    This is a good and a bad thing. It is a good thing because if someone is bad than you know not to hire them. it is a bad thing because people should not be judged on what their friends post. Just because their friends might post bad things does not mean that they are bad.
  •  
    Well, for me the act of "shoulder surfing" is good as well bad. It is good because as an employer if I don't know the maybe future employee this would be good to base my opinion on whether or not to hire them. This also can be bad, as the future employee may have private conversation with his or her wife that they do not want anyone to see (this is just to give an example).
  •  
    I guess i could understand why they have this. I personally like this idea in most ways, but not all. For example, its good for finding if the person your employing is a criminal, or someone bad. But its kind of bad because what if someone is not accepted because they were talking with a 'special someone' and the employers saw. That doesn't really seem fair to me, because that is your personal PERSONAL info, and no one else needs to see it besides you and who you are talking to. Unless of course its about something bad like planning something illegal. The main downside i see in this is maybe that person created a fake Facebook that looks all great and seems like they are a good person. Then a not-so-good person might have gotten a job that they wouldn't have gotten otherwise. I can't really decide if this is good or bad, but for now, I'm going to say it's bad.
  •  
    Well i think it is 50/50, because you have to be careful of what you put out there. And i don't think they should go on your friends facebook account to look at there posts and not yours! I also don't think they should judge you by your friends!
  •  
    I dont know exactly if this is fair or not. I can see where employers are coming from by wanting to see their possible employees facebook account, but i also think that a lot of the stuff that we may post may be completely personal while being completely innocent. everyone needs privacy and if they decide to do that through facebook then they have the right.
  •  
    I think its a good video to watch because it definitely made me think. The video also scared me even thought i don't have a Facebook. I now know how to stay safe if i get one.
  •  
    I think that the post is mean. I don't really like the post because it makes the person look bad.

ACLU Sues School For Punishing 12-Year-Old Over Facebook Comment - 2 views

  •  
    You'll want to read this lawsuit as it lies on the cusp of what we will experience in schools in the future. In this case, a 12 year old girl (on Facebook, despite the fact she is technically too young to be) is suing a school district (via the ACLU) for punishment because of her use of Facebook. I think the school went too far when it required her to hand over her Facebook and email login to the school, but we'll see what the courts decide.

    The ACLU says this is a violation of free speech. Stay tuned and realize that students have a right to hate you, say unkind things about you, etc. There is a fine line in what is allowed and what isn't. Just because we CAN deal with issues relating to bullying of other children - that doesn't mean we can wear our own chips on our shoulders and require that kids pretend to like us. It is hurtful when children say unkind things and many don't realize everyone is watching. If students are not understanding the consequences of their actions, then I partially blame any school that doesn't step up and teach digital citizenship.
