The Death Of Online Privacy

Before there were news mostly related to terrorists. Today, it seems I have read quite a lot of news regarding deaths and suicides because of sex scandals and they mostly affected teenage people. On the heels of the tragic suicide of a Rutgers University freshman after his roommate streamed online video of his same-sex, dorm-room encounter, this highlights a new truth of the digital age.

Now, more than ever, the most intimate of moments can become very public, very quickly. Creating Web pages and streaming online video is easier than ever. And the growing number of mobile phones with cameras, both still and video, means that documentation is often just a click away.

The ease of sharing digital information means it doesn’t take much for things to find their way onto the internet. And once they are there, they can go viral within minutes. Social-networking sites like Facebook and Twitter make the old telephone game is a thing of the past. One post, and you’ve passed along the latest news to hundreds, if not thousands, of friends and followers who can immediately share it with a friends list of their own.

If you have something intimate to share. Keep it to yourself. Actually, refrain from using the camera. That action alone can save you your life. And your future. What do you think?

Hooked with Facebook

facebookBefore I used to have Friendster account and was quite active with it.  But just recently when my husband and I learned about the Facebook we tried to register.  At first, I felt like it’s not that user-friendly, but when I got used to it I just totally forgot about my Friendster account and never updated it.  You can do a lot of things in Facebook aside from inviting friends, relatives and classmates.  You can also upload photos, chat, play games, take quizzes, listen to music and a lot more.  That’s what makes it very unique from the rest of the social networking website.  So if you want to get connected with more friends and have fun, switch to Facebook.  Nobody is stopping you.

Should Your Blog’s Page Rank Be Demoted?

blogicons_wordpressMy husband wanted me to post this in my blog because he thinks someone may know some things about page ranks and may want to share their experiences. I am totally clueless about this lolz. It has been bugging him for awhile because my blog suddenly got a zero page rank. The following is his post …

I have about finished what I am supposed to do for the day so in my free time I have been reading articles regarding page rank demotion and what one can do to get back on track again. It is no mystery that paid links and paid posts (with links) are heavy factors in one’s site’s page rank demotion. While others have voiced their own opinions regarding technical and political matters, there is one thing that towers over them all. Not all people are in depth tech-literate.

Sure, technology today has made it easy for people to write blogs with the use of user friendly interfaces that does everything for you in the backend and all the user does is type and click. That, I believe is what made Microsoft’s Bill Gates the richest man in the world. The ease of use where mostly everything is done behind the scenes and the user does only a few stuffs is what made the Windows OS a hit. Now, going back to the main topic. There are also quite a lot of bloggers who write for monetization purposes or just for the sake of it because they enjoy doing it.

The way Google has been demoting sites, I believe is a failure in their part. Does this mean that every blogger should know about SEO and HTML? I bet you more than 80% who start blogging do not even know what page rank is or how important it is. I never even knew tabout it when I started with paid blogging until I wondered why I had not been getting any offers in one of my blogs and searched in the net for possible answers. I have no problems because I am on the techie side so I can handle things like SEO and HMTL. But for those people who cannot handle tech stuffs … man, poor them. Google should restore everyone’s page rank and review their algorithms rather than letting bloggers feel the pain of a page rank demotion.
