Facebook y Twitter despiertan más deseo que beber o fumar

Un estudio afirma que cuesta más resistirse a entrar en estas redes sociales que decir no a un cigarrillo o una bebida

Resistir el impulso de entrar en Facebook o Twitter para ver si hay actualizaciones cuesta más que decir no a un cigarro o a una bebida con alcohol. Así lo asegura un estudio sobre los deseos cotidianos de la gente realizado por la Booth School of Business de la Universidad de Chicago y del que se hace hoy eco el diario británico The Telegraph.

Facebook y Twitter son las redes sociales más populares del momento, a las que se puede estar conectado las 24 horas del día con los teléfonos inteligentes o las tabletas. Entrar en el perfil de Facebook para comprobar si alguien ha comentado un estado o ha publicado una foto, así como consultar las menciones en Twitter o los tuits de los seguidores, se han convertido ya para muchos en acciones diarias tan comunes como dormir o comer.

The Difference Between Building Authority and Talking About Yourself

Your content actually demonstrates your expertise, compared with a website or bio page that claimsexpertise. This is a crucial distinction, because it truly levels the playing field and allows anyone to come along and build authority that outpaces even recognized and credentialed experts in a particular niche or field.”

The truth about authority perception by humans or machines is what people say about you is much more important than what you say about yourself!

How do you get people talking? Have a point of view and let people know through content you publish on and off of your webiste. Use a blog, articles, guest blogging, commenting, videos, podcasts…the list is endless.

The key is creating content now. Imagine, you have been working your entire adult life building your business and developing a great reputation. Then, some upstart comes into your market and starts publishing content, doing webinars, and suddenly, they are the perceived expert in your niche. Not fun…

We will have a webinar on this shortly….stay tuned.

Larry King, CNN Officially Split

Larry King and CNN are officially parting ways. The network announced on Wednesday that it has decided to end the “Larry King Specials.” King said he will now focus on other projects.

King, who is 78 years old, ended his 25-year role at the network as the host of prime time show “Larry King Live” in December 2010. CNN and King agreed that the famed interviewer would host four specials a year for CNN.

His specials thus far have focused on topics ranging from Alzheimer’s to an exclusive interview with Johnny Depp. His most recent special, “A Larry King Special: Dinner With the Kings,” aired in December. King’s last special made headlines as the broadcaster revealed that he would like to be frozen after his death.

According to the Los Angeles Times, King’s staff of four will likely be let go but may have the opportunity to reapply for new jobs at the network.

King’s show was replaced with “Piers Morgan Tonight,” an interview show hosted by British media personality, Piers Morgan.

From encryption to darknets: As governments snoop, activists fight back

In Iran, they would think about jamming as a first countermeasure.

In the wake of the Occupy protest movement in cities around the world, some online activists have gathered together to create The Darknet Projectand the Free Network Foundation, two rather quixotic attempts to re-engineer mesh networking to the point that it would encircle the globe and act as a giant encrypted network.

“With an ISP, the government can tell an ISP to cut that connection,” wrote a Reddit user named pomegranati in a recent post. “With a public network, especially if all the connections are anonymous, they won’t know where something is coming from or where something is going. They can track what’s happening, but they won’t be able to shut it down unless they go to every specific node and physically shut them down. Now, if the network is encrypted, then they won’t know what’s being sent.”

The problem for activists is that, just as in the mobile world, there are also real-world attacks that can compromise physical networks.

WiFi uses the same band of energy (2.4 GHz) that microwave ovens do, so getting a few people to stand on rooftops, Say Anything-style, would probably do much to disrupt any local mesh WiFi network within a radius of tens of meters.

“If you want to jam a wireless signal, you can just put a microwave on the roof and set it to full power,” Kaplan said. “In Iran, they would think about jamming as a first countermeasure, because it’s so extremely cheap.”

Plus, if the network is designed to have new nodes join easily, then it will be just as easy to add fake nodes, and to inject fake instructions into the network, confusing traffic or causing it to come to a halt entirely.

Doing the most good

Knowing how to use much of this technology at the level of detail required to stay reasonably safe is beyond most common users. For the majority of activists, properly vetted software and hardware protection of mobile phones and Internet connections may be too expensive or too complicated to set up and maintain properly.

But for those not well-versed in security, the hope for secure communications isn’t over. Some of the most dramatic worldwide gains come when the tech behemoths that we all rely on everyday start re-thinking their own approach to privacy.

“When Google turned on SSL by default, in January 2010, in one day that company did more to protect the privacy of activists than the rest of us have done since,” Chris Soghoian concluded.

“If Google encrypted the contents of your Android phone by default, that would provide a huge protection [for] people whose phones are stolen or are seized by the police. Those are the kind of protections that we need,” he added. “All these applications that people are creating, that activists are creating, and then abandoning six months after their funding runs out—those are just a waste of time. Those are never going to go anywhere and they’re never going to be used by anyone. We need technologies that can be used by millions of consumers, without playing with configuration options.”

Campaign Attribution in Google Analytics

In this post I’ll talk about how Google Analytics attributes a conversion, technically talking. This is not about how you should analyze conversion attribution, if you are interested in that I suggest you to visit Constraint Management vs Direct Attribution.

Google Analytics, as the other Web Analytics solutions allows you to identify from which source each conversion came from. Each platform has a particular attribution definition, ergo, it attributes the conversions in a very particular way and could or could not be the same as any other tool you may use. The key, as always in digital measurement, is identifying how the platform processes the information.

Google Analytics attributes the conversion to the most recent campaign by default, unless the second session’s traffic source it is a Direct Visit. Direct Visits won’t take credit from a previous referring campaign.

Apple’s Siri May Soon Speak Japanese, Work On iPad 3 (RUMOR)

Apple says Siri will add Japanese, Chinese, Spanish, Korean and Italian this year, but this “outing” is leading many to speculate that the Japanese capability will come very soon.

And that’s not all. On Tuesday, SlashGear reported that Siri may be available on the iPad 3, which is expected to be released on March 7.

The speculation comes from a new token that Apple has added to Siri rendering the application inoperable on devices other than the iPhone 4S. According to Apple, the app “works exclusively on iPhone 4S,” but many have jailbroken their iPhone and iPad devices to allow Siri to work. (Check out idownloadblog.com for a detailed reportabout the token.)
