Q: Beginners guide to social media

Greetings,

My company is interested in setting up a social media presence online using Facebook.

We have a concern over negative feedback from customers or competitors or outside parties and that fact that the comments become a permanent record.

I would welcome comments from anyone with a point of view on this issue.

Many thanks!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Beginners guide to social media

Hello.First. . . I'm unsure of what your asking, could you clarify please?Secondly, it is my opinion that there is no such thing as "bad feedback" provided you make proper use of it. Both positive and negative feedback have use in determining your company's future. Positive feedback shows you what you're doing right, and negative feedback shows you how you can improve. Personally, if I see a company with only positive "testimonies" available I get a little bit suspicious; I believe that the ethical company should not take steps to hide flaws, but instead use those resources to find and correct said flaws. Finally, if by "negative feedback" you mean spam or troll attacks on your company, Facebook does provide the capability to remove offending comments from your page.Hope that helps.~Blade

Hi,

I am stuck with a shitty Intel Core i3 530 @ 4.12 GHz, with a stock cooler, on the LGA 1156 platform. It gets near 100 Degrees Celsius, and I am looking to upgrade.

This is where I think I am stuck where a lot of people are. Do I upgrade to Socket 1155, or 1366?

According to a benchmark, http://www.cpubenchmark.net/high_end_cpus.html
the Intel Core i7-2600k is up the top with a horrible naming system, and almost on par in performance with the Intel Core i7 980x, which has 2 more cores.

The 1366 has good SLI performance, with some extreme motherboards like EVGA's 4-Way SLI having Nvidia NF200 chips to create more PCI-E Lanes. Most will do 2-Way SLI or Crossfire with x16/x16 configuration. And you can upgrade to six core CPU's with that X58 platform.

What I am thinking is, for LAN parties, that I build this:

Intel Core i7 950 with any overclock that a low profile CPU cooler can handle at 100% CPU usage (probably none).
EVGA Geforce GTX 580, later SLI if I like global warming.
12 - 24GB Memory, 8 to start with.
EVGA X58 Micro SLI
Apevia Q-XPACK 2
A 1000W PSU with enough 6-pin and 8-pin rails.

It will take me a while to save up with $70 Australian Dollars per day I work, so by that time, do I upgrade to Socket LGA 1356 or LGA 2011 (possibly just a myth). Apparently, they will have PCI-E 3.0 Lanes, and like 40 of them (look at Wikipedia).

The point I make, is that even people like me who love keeping up to date with all of the hardware a... Read more

A:CPU socket guide for beginners

Well mate, that's powerful amount of postin' an' thinkin' you did there.

However, since my crystal ball in in the shop right now, I'm going to suggest that you wait for "Sandy Bridge" and socket LGA 2011 to become available at the consumer level before you make any decision.

In the meantime, you'd better spring for an aftermarket cooler for your i3-530, or you won't have that to insult for very much longer.

I don't need a home network

I do want to have shared storage across many computers though.
Do I need a home network?
If so... can someone give me a pointer to a dummy starter guide?

For storage, I would like something that I can add storage to...
Like a rack... where I can just slip in another hard disk as and when I feel like.
Is that even possible!?

What do I need for the storage hardware? Is there like a barebones box that you can buy and then add hard discs to later on or something?

RAID: how important is that to have?

Thanks.
 

A:Need beginners guide for home networking

Unless you want to move files from one computer to another computer by copying them to something like a flash drive and then plugging the flash drive into the destination computer, you will need a Local Area Network (LAN) of some kind. The fastest transfers would be using all Gigabit Ethernet connections, WiFi would be a wireless solution if you don't want to run Ethernet cables.

If you want a storage method that easily allows you to add drives as needed, you should look into a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device. They come in various sizes as far as the number of available drive bays and some may allow for multiple network connections to increase throughput.

A RAID configuration of hard drives could be used to provide some level of redundant storage where the failure of one (or more) drives will not result in the loss of data. Other RAID configurations allow for faster read and/or write speeds than you could achieve with a single drive. Other RAID configurations are a blend of redundancy and fast throughput. In the case of typical home usage, redundancy is probably needed more than throughput.

Many NAS devices include configurable hardware RAID controllers that also allow hot-swapping of hard drives. You can have the RAID controller disable a failing drive, allowing you to remove it without affecting the operation of the remaining drives, plug in a new drive, and have the controller rebuild the data on the new drive from the other drives.

Even when using a NAS wit... Read more

Hey all,

I'm new to the world of SCSI hard drives, and I was wondering if anyone could give me an informative guide about them. (What to connect, what everything means, how to use adapters, etc.) I've searched online, but I don't understand much of the guides there. Also, I want to know if they are compatible with the DFI Lanparty nF4 SLI-DR mobo.

A:Need a SCSI HDD guide (for utmost beginners)

SCSI drives are usually more reliable, and used to be faster than IDE.
Nowadays they are not only much more expensive, they have lost their speed-advantage, and the size of SCSI drives is a lot smaller than IDE.

Your motherboard does NOT natively support SCSI drives, you would need to buy a PCI SCSI adapter, expensive SCSI harddisks and a different SCSI flatcable.

The risks of Social Media
Do you cyber-blab? Are you a compulsive Tweeter or Facebooker? Think carefully about what you post. A simple post about your daily visit to the local coffee shop could be enough to tell a burglar when it is safe to rob your house. Remember EVERYTHING on a Social Media site is public.

Facebook and Twitter
Don?t get carried away with what you post on these sites and remember that almost everything you post will be completely public and it is rather like walking down the local High Street and shouting at the top of your voice to everyone in earshot, everything that happened last night, what colour underwear you have on, your name & address and phone number and where you hide the spare keys to your front door.
Be very careful what you post on Facebook or tweet about. It can be used against you in court or by an insurance company, even something as mild and innocent as: ?I?m jogging every day to get fit for my holiday?. Not good if you?re claiming for whiplash after a car accident or you are off sick from work.
Lawyers, Insurance companies, your current or prospective employer will take the time to scroll your Facebook timeline and your tweet history for evidence that can go against you.
Scammers and Fraudsters will scan Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites for useful information that will help them scam you.

About three months ago, this program was making headlines all over the national news. I thought it was at the very least amusing and thought I would give it a try. When I installed the program, I didn't do all the setting up required. I tried to get rid of it today and upon attempting to uninstall it I got this message:

"The installation source for this product is not available. Verify that the source exists and you can access it."

It appears I need a file that would be in my temp files. I went to the website, www.socialmediasobrietytest.com to reinstall the software, and eventually got this message:

"Another version of this product is already installed. Installation of this version cannot continue. To configure or remove the existing version of this product, use Add/Remove Programs on the Control Panel."

So, now I'm stuck in a never-ending cycle. When a program does this, it usually gives me cause for concern, but everywhere I look I'm seeing that WebRoot designed the program and WebRoot makes anti-virus and anti-spyware software. There's no program with that title on www.webroot.com, however.

I've googled everything I can think of and I'm finding almost all of the media's coverage in Novemer and NOTHING about install/uninstall issues. Is this program malware/adware/spyware? How do I remove it? Is it ok to reinstall it and try it out? Thanks.

Finding and addressing Twitter and Facebook threats requires a thorough understanding of how they're accomplished.

Social media threats are at an all-time high, ranging from account hijacking to impersonation attacks, scams, and new ways of distributing malware and executing phishing attacks. Sophisticated attacks target organizations of all sizes. For example, Microsoft was the victim of a series of social media hacks by nation-state threat actors. The attack campaign was extensive, affecting multiple Twitter accounts (principally Skype?s) and exposing corporate passwords and emails for dozens of Microsoft employees.

Because social media exists outside of the network perimeter, social media threats can manifest long before network perimeter and endpoint security detect malicious behavior. Detecting and mitigating these threats requires a thorough understanding of this new threat landscape. If we compare these tactics, techniques, and procedures to traditional network attack methods, we can draw some important contrasts.

Adversaries traditionally target a corporate network using two phases: reconnaissance and exploitation. Reconnaissance involves footprinting (for example, gathering information about an organization?s IP address and domains), scanning (identifying what systems are using what IPs), and enumeration (identifying the services and ports available on these target systems). When attackers use social media, their strategy is similar, but the methods of at... Read more

Cyber crime has reached a new battlefield ? social media platforms. Just as companies seek new opportunities to reach their target audience, so do cyber criminals. According to Proofpoint?s recent Social Media Brand Fraud Report, 19% of the 4,840 social media accounts associated with ten top worldwide brands were fraudulent.

Identikit fraudulent social media accounts
Carefully crafted, bogus accounts can be difficult to distinguish from legitimate ones. They replicate the brand account as much as they can, mimicking the logo, look and feel, and even content. The only difference is in what they propose to the audience: customer service at odd times, discounts, free gifts, and deals that are too good to be true. As the report says, ?the only difference might be something as small as one character in the Twitter handle, such as @askmajorbank vs. @ask_majorbank?.

Although social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram have implemented an account verification service ? the blue checkmark badge next to the account name ? cyber criminals have become even smarter and can replicate the badge in their background image to fool customers. However effective account verification is, it doesn?t extend to posts or tweets and fraudsters know this all too well.

This is a thread I wanted to make for quite some time... namely since 2011 when the whole SOPA / PIPA / ACTA / CISPA madness started, as part of a massive plan to censor the internet. Like many others, I've been interested in a way to create a framework that would allow people to post what they want, without either an ISP being able to censor them nor the government being able to knock at a specific door and arrest someone for what they're hosting.
 
Most attempts to make this dream come true have been at networking level. Mesh networking in routers is an example of it being done through hardware, while TOR is an example of an attempt through software on existing devices. But all of these methods are either slow, unreliable, or unavailable for most people. So before this breakthrough happens, and people can create an internet that doesn't require ISP's and where your traffic can't be spied on, I've been thinking about different kind of platform.

Easy Tips on Cyber Security and Use of Social Media This Summer:

Summer is in swing.

This is the time of the year when the majority of employees take time off work, due to child-care (with schools being closed) and wanting to spending time recharging their batteries.

Social media and cyber security play a big role in the summer. On a daily basis, and particularly when we travel, we are all guilty of sharing personal photographs, pictures of our families and kids on our social media accounts. With publicly showing our meals out or just picnics in the park, everybody can see where we go, how long for and when we are back home.

Cyber security is an issue that is becoming predominant both in our business and home life. That?s why we all need to educate ourselves in looking after our own online privacy, in order to reduce potential risks, such as burglaries for example.

Our public Twitter accounts can be merciless if a savvy criminal is planning to act.

Advertising your vacation plans on social media seems like a sharing-fun thing to do; however, digital footprints are all clues available to anyone who is trying to find out about us. We?re all guilty of Googling our names, so yes, potential criminals can track down your address this way.

They can track you down by checking your other social media accounts for clues. They can easily identify where you live. Did you know that insurance claims may not be granted if you have a public display of your whereabouts on social me... Read more

Social media security:
Avoiding the phishing threats from Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn

Social media may not be everyone?s cup of tea, but it is getting harder and harder to ignore for organisations ? especially from a cyber security perspective.

A range of recent research has highlighted the increasing dangers that organisations face from employees? social media usage.

One thing that stands out in the research is how little ?due diligence?, in the words of Raj Samani, CTO EMEA at Intel Security, is done when connecting with other accounts.

Intel Security?s research found that 24 percent of the 2000 UK-based respondents had connected with someone they did not know on LinkedIn.

69 percent of respondents had never wondered if someone was not whom they said they were on LinkedIn.

Research conducted by OnePulse for RiskIQ found that only 53 percent of people check for the verified badge when engaging with a retail brand.

Only 42 percent of people checked the brand?s other social media posts, 40 percent checked the brand?s replied to other people?s Tweets or posts. 31 percent checked the Twitter handle or Facebook URL while 24 percent checked the brand?s number of followers or likes.

Hi,

I have recently purchased a new laptop and then upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 using the updater. I have Windows Media Player as a Tile when I press the start menu and this App opens and plays my music in the same way as previously. However, I also wish to listen to a range on Internet Radio Stations, which on my old laptop were available through activating Media Guide .... despite following all instructions in an attempt to find and activate Media Guide in this Media Player (looks like Ver 12), there are no check-boxes, or any other links available to activate Media Guide.

How do I activate Media Guide so that I can listen to Internet Radio?

A Google search reveals a set of instructions that include customising the Navigation Bar, but I don't have the specific check-box specified. Also, I've been through the route of attempting to manage libraries - no Media Guide there either.

Anybody got any clues?

I don't think it is part of the WMP interface anymore. However, you can access the content at http://www.windowsmedia.com/radioui/home.aspx .

The United States Department of State wants to make it mandatory for all foreigners to provide social media details when applying for a visa to enter the US.

US authorities want to modify three visa application forms. The changes made to the three forms would make it mandatory for all visa applicants ?immigrant and non-immigrant? to provide all social media handles used in the last five years.

Diplomatic visas will be exempt from this new rule and some applicants might be asked to provide a list of emails and phone numbers used in the past five years, for additional vetting purposes.

The Department of State has not detailed the list of social media platforms for which it intends to collect account names but said the forms would include an optional section where applicants can enter usernames for online platforms not included in the main list.

Nearly 15 million visa applicants affected
The State Department is seeking Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to modify three US visa forms ?DS-156, DS-160, and DS-260.

These are visa forms that immigrant and non-immigrant visa applicants must fill in and submit before being allowed to enter the US. US officials estimate 710,000 immigrant seekers and 14 million non-immigrant visa applicants will be affected.

Does anyone know if Search Engines can crawl and index social media profile pages that are set to private (set to where only "friends" of that person are able to access the page)? The best analogy I can give is back in the Myspace era when users had the option to set their pages to private, and anyone who wasn't a 'friend' of that person and tried to access their profile would just get a blank screen that just said "This profile is set to private. You are not authorized to view this page," or something to that effect. I was just wondering if Search Engine crawler bots get this same sort of page when they try to access private profiles, or if somehow they are able to get past these blocks and thus crawl & index social media pages that are supposedly private. I have been searching all over the net trying to find an answer to this question but haven't been able to find anything.  

A:Can search engines crawl & index social media profiles set to private?

Probably not but I bet there are products that will do that for a price.

After working with TSF experts and trying many things my java runtime environment will not work. Also, links posted to social media do not work that link to my website on avahost.com ( Cloud Hands Virtual Gallery) but same links will work when pasted into a browser. For example this link was not working earlier when posted to TSF: http://jerryrosspittore.com/Verify.png but works ok when pasted into Chrome or IE10.

I have run the programs suggested by Rich and am attaching the attach.zip file in hope they can shed some light on my problem.

In the last week our guide stopped downloading. We have Vista Ultimate x64. Our harddrived died and we had to purchase a new one and reinstall Vista. Once we set up the Media Center it had been working fine and we had all of the guide data available. Then 1 week ago we started getting the message Low Guide Data. We went through the Guide Setup procedures again and checked the internet connection. The media center icon in the tray will periodically say "Connecting to the Internet to download guide data." On occasion it will say Guide Downloading - 0% complete. But it never actually downloads and now we have no guide data on any channel.

Any help is appreciated.


Our fix to this was to rename the c:\\ProgramData\Microsoft\eHome folder to eHome_old, re-boot and run the Media Center Set up again.

I have used Windows Media Centre to watch TV for years. Suddenly the guide is not downloading the most common TV programme details available in my area. Some programme details are coming in but the first 9 slots just say No Data Available. My computer has good broadband access and I am actually receiving the programmes on all channels. As the guide is incomplete I can't set up recording, of course.

The guide has stopped downloading. It would usually download every two weeks, but sometimes sooner. I think it stopped downloading after I had a problem activating my windows. I thought I had activated it, but there was a problem during the activation. A customer rep. solved the problem by generating me a new key and having me restore the computer to my earlist restore point. This took care of the activation problem, but now two weeks later, yhe guide won't download. "A critical media center process has falied. Please restart the computer and try again. If the problem presists, contact your hardware manufacturer for assistance" is the error message I get. Any help from someone with similar problem or just know-how is much appreciated.

this Xmas I got a tv receiver for my laptop (i am running home prem 32bit with media center) i have installed the drivers and such for the receiver and it works great with both the program provided and media center however the program provided lacks the ability to schedule record so i went to media center only to find that the guide was not in TV + Movies. I would like to know why it is not there. i've tried everything but the only thing that i thought might work, doing the guide set up, did not work because it said " guide listings not available, TV Program Guide listings are not available for your country or region"
i was wondering if this was my problem or if this is yet another muck up my micro$hit

also if this is an issue i cannot resolve, is there any way to schedule a recording without using the guide (as in enter when to start and stop recording and which channel to record?

p.s. I live in Brisbane in Australia and my post code is 4061

Windows Media Centre on my HP Pavillion dv8 laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate tells me that the TV guide update has failed when I try to manually update it. If I go to the guide "About" page in Media Centre, it tells me that the guide is provided
by BDS (in the UK) and that the End date is 31/01/2018 at 06:00:00. That is after I have reconfigured Media Centre with my Hauppauge USB terrestrial (Freeview) tuner. During the setup, I received a message telling me that the guide download is complete.
My home-built desktop running two Avermedia terrestrial tuners has a similar problem in that it will not update the guide but the "About" page shows no End date.
How do I fix this problem such that Windows Media Centre in the UK will regularly download the latest guide listings?

After having read many online responses, (including Microsofts useless tech rhetoric), I am convinced that only a myracle can salvage my ability to, once again, download the Microsoft Vista Windows Media Center's Guide. I have a solid internet connection that just won't connect and collect ANY Media Center download. From what I have read online, my situation is but one of thousands where the Media Center simply quit working one day. I receive an error message titled "Code 13". I have tried everything to resolve this issue short of buying port forwarding software or formatting and reinstalling my OS. I am beginning to think that Microsoft wants to forcibly upgrade me to 7 from my current lemon of an OS... Vista. PLEASE! No copy/paste reprints of any current online fixes. None of these work. Nothing short of a myracle will.

A:Windows Media Center TV Guide won't download

Go to C:\Windows\ehome.
C:\ would be your windows drive.
Doubleclick the mcupdate.exe program.
Wait and see if the media center icon pops up in the taskbar
notification area.
If it does,try downloading the guide again.
If that works for you,you may have a corrupted or misconfigured
task in task scheduler.
You would need to check it at
Control Panel\Administrative Tools\task scheduler.
Expand Task scheduler library\microsoft\windows and click on media center.
Double click the mcupdate task to open it.
On the settings tab run on demand should be selected.
Might check the settings on the other tabs also.
