Fifteen significant social media & security events of 2009

Facebook Privacy & Security Guide Video Released

I finally got around to recording and editing the video walkthrough of the Facebook Privacy & Security Guide.

The video clocks in at about 18 minutes.  I also included information about email/text alerts, how applications work, Facebook Ads, and how to hide your friends list from public searches.  Stay tuned for other guides and videos for MySpace, Twitter and LinkedIn.

Social Media Security Podcast 6 – Privacy, Photo Tagging, Facebook Police, What is Clickjacking

skullThis is the 6th episode of the Social Media Security Podcast recorded December 3, 2009.  This episode was hosted by Tom Eston and Kevin JohnsonScott Wright joins in as “god” during post-edit.  Below are the show notes, links to articles and news mentioned in the podcast:

  • New privacy settings in Facebook are rolling out, regional networks are being removed.  Be sure to check out the comments under Mark Zuckerberg’s blog post…all spam!
  • Is Facebook photo tagging still a big fail?
    Scott clarifies this for us.  The solution to this is to adjust your privacy settings to allow only you to see tagged photos of yourself and ensure email alerting is on to alert you when a new photo is tagged of you.  That way you can easily remove any tagged photo of you.  There is also no way to “prevent” a photo of you being tagged.  However, to tag someone they need to be in your friends list.  How about false tagging?  Someone tagging you in a naughty picture…reputation issue?  What if you don’t have a Facebook account and friends make comments regardless?
  • Police create fake Facebook account to bust a college student for underage drinking.  Did the police go too far or this is acceptable practice in this day and age?
  • Kevin talks about Clickjacking.  What is it and what do users of social networks need to be aware of?
