Social Network Users Reportedly Concerned About Privacy, but Behavior Says Otherwise

first_imgRelated Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… sarah perez Recently, new data from security solutions company Webroot revealed some interesting insights into the thoughts and behaviors of users on social networking sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, MySpace, Twitter, and others. According to their survey, a majority of users (78%) reported concerns about their social network profiles’ privacy, but when asked about specific behaviors it was apparent that “concern” didn’t translate into action. In fact, it didn’t even seem to translate into a basic understanding of how to use the privacy tools already in place on the networks today.Is Your Profile Public? Err…I Don’t KnowSeeing that a majority of social networking users expressed concerns about the information they shared in their profile, it’s somewhat surprising to find that 80 percent of those same users allow their profiles – or at least, part of them – to be indexed by public search engines like Google. And 66% of users don’t restrict any profile information from being publicly searchable. Those numbers are based on the realities of the situation as tracked by Webroot, but when asked directly about their profile’s publicity, a lot of respondents didn’t even know the answer. A whopping 59% of the 1100 surveyed said they weren’t sure who could see their profile. To top it off, 32% of users shared at least three pieces of identifiable information on their profile pages and 28% accepted friend requests from complete strangers. These sorts of behaviors show a distinct lack of understanding about the risks of sharing personal information with those you don’t know. It also certainly shows that being concerned about privacy hasn’t been enough of an incentive for users to take any action to change their behavior. The Younger You Are, the More You Share TrustWebroot also found that younger social networking users took more risks than any other demographic. Those users ages 18 to 29 tended to use the same password across multiple sites (51% versus 36% overall), accepted friend requests from strangers (40% versus 28% overall), and shared more personal information online. In this age group, 67% shared their birthday (vs. 52% overall), 62% shared their home town (vs. 50% overall), and 45% shared their employer (vs. 35% overall). Not surprisingly, this overly trusting group also reported more security attacks than others with nearly 40% having experienced an attack versus 30% overall. Are Privacy Settings Too Hard to Use?What’s surprising about these findings is that most of today’s modern social networks provide privacy settings that allow you to keep your personal information from being indexed or viewed by anyone except those you choose. Even simple social networks, like microblogging site Twitter, let you set your feed to private, if you so desire. Facebook, now the largest social network in the U.S., offers robust privacy settings and is working on making them even more reflective of our real-world relationships. But clearly, there’s a disconnect between what tools are out there and the users’ knowledge of what’s available or how to use them. What can social networks do, though? Is it enough to simply offer the tools then put the onus on the users to dig around until they find them? Or should there be more guides and wizards provided in order to make turning on privacy settings a chore that even the less technically-inclined can handle? As it stands today with so many mainstream users joining social networks, it may be time that social networks stopped hiding privacy options features deep within the settings (an area we’d wager the everyday user rarely accesses). Networks need to start highlighting your options or at least linking to the settings, somewhere a bit more obvious – like the profile page itself, for example. Of course, even if social networks did so, there would still be a subset of users who were simply uninterested in doing anything about it. We suppose they would still have to learn the hard way about the risks of over-sharing, but at the very least, a larger part of the online population would be able to protect themselves and their personal info.

MEN: DIN rail concept based on robust individual components

first_img Continue Reading Previous Octavo introduces complete 1GHz computer in a 27 mm packageNext Swirling down the rabbit hole DIN-Rail is a new modular concept from MEN. The system is based on robust individual components which can be combined in flexible built-to-order configurations. The DIN rail modules are suitable – thanks to medium CPU and low power dissipation – for a variety of applications in the mobile and industrial market.The DIN rail concept is designed for flexible configuration of module combinations and is suitable for embedded IoT applications in various markets. The range of individual modules includes a CPU module, a power supply unit and various expansion modules for wireless communication and storage. In the modular system, the data transfer between the individual modules as well as the power supply of the individual components takes place via the expansion connectors standardized by MEN. The concept specifications include housing dimensions, mounting, cooling and IP protection. In addition, expansion connectors and their pin assignments are defined.The MC50M is the current basic module of the DIN-Rail family and is based on Intel’s Atom E3900 series with low power dissipation and scalability in power and memory. The simple integration of ready-made expansion modules enables application-specific configurations to be created and delivered in a short time. The expansion modules have interfaces such as MVB, CAN, binary and analog I/Os as well as the wireless functions LTE Advanced, WLAN and GNSS. A removable shuttle with one or two 2.5” SATA hard disks can expand the DIN rail system for storage-intensive applications. A wide-range power supply can be integrated if a nominal power consumption of 24 V DC to 110 V DC is required (EN 50155). DIN rail mounting (35 mm) is standard. Wall and 19” rack mounting is possible with the aid of adaptation brackets.The CPU module is qualified for use onboard rail vehicles, for wayside applications and for road vehicles (ECE R10). Long-term availability of at least 15 years from product launch minimizes life cycle management. The components of the DIN-Rail family support the temperature range -40 to +70°C according to the railway standard EN 50155 (class OT4, ST1) with internal conduction cooling.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Boards & Modules last_img read more

Analysis A Good Day To Be A Texas Incumbent

first_imgLaura Skelding for The Texas TribuneTexas Flag and signs across street from Waxahachie parks and recreation voting place on Tuesday, March 6, 2018 — primary voting day in Texas.Incumbents of almost every stripe did well in Tuesday’s elections for state office.Only seven of them lost, and only two more were forced into runoffs.A great line from Republican political consultant Wayne Hamilton nicely summed up this election: “So much money, so little change.”The fallen include:State Sen. Craig Estes of Wichita Falls has literally watched his district grow away from his home base and into the northern clutches of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and whose opponent, state Rep. Pat Fallon of Prosper, was endorsed by Republican Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick.State Rep. Wayne Faircloth of Galveston was one of three Republicans on Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s hit list — and the only one to fall on Tuesday. He was in trouble anyway, running against wealthy Chambers County candidate Mayes Middleton. They ended close to a draw in Faircloth’s home county, but Middleton won big in his.State Rep. Jason Villalba of Dallas is one of two Hispanic Republicans in the Texas House and a regular target of arch-conservatives in his primary elections and of Democrats in his general elections. He lost the primary to Lisa Luby Ryan, who now has to best that significant second obstacle in November.State Rep. Diana Arévalo, D-San Antonio, fell victim to a time-worn electoral hazard: a predecessor who wants the seat back. She won office when Trey Martinez Fischer gave it up for an unsuccessful Senate bid. The key word there was “unsuccessful.” He saw his old perch as the best way back to Austin, and he won it by 115 votes out of 9,369 cast.Tomas Uresti’s first bid for re-election to the Texas House was undone, in part, by an unrelenting barrage of awful headlines featuring his last name. His brother, state Sen. Carlos Uresti, was convicted — right in the middle of early voting — on 11 federal felony charges including counts of money laundering and fraud. The trial was lurid, the headlines gruesome, and the House Uresti’s loss on Tuesday probably preordained.Roberto Alonzo of Dallas, a 10-term state representative, was convincingly defeated by Jessica Gonzalez, a young attorney in this strongly Democratic district.State Rep. Dawnna Dukes of Austin received a meager 10.16 percent of the vote in a Democratic primary that served as a referendum on the incumbent. That’s not a good thing, even for a legislator who had become a fixture on the budget-writing House Appropriations Committee and had been re-elected every two years since 1995. She suffered medical setbacks after a traffic accident, was charged with violating ethics laws that embarrassed prosecutors later said were based on bad evidence. And she said, at one point, that she wouldn’t run this time, a move that prompted several candidates to jump into her race. She came back, but they didn’t leave. Two of them —Chito Vela and Sheryl Cole — will be in a May runoff. Dukes will be at home.Two more state representatives, Democrats René Oliveira of Brownsville and Scott Cosper of Killeen, were pushed into runoffs in May. Oliveira will face Alex Dominguez. Cosper’s remaining opponent is Brad Buckley. Runoff elections are not the preferred forum of incumbents, but they’re still alive.Various factions declared victory after the votes were counted; that’s what factions do. But the results were evidence of good defense more than good offense. Most of the incumbents under fire in this year’s primaries survived to the next round. Scads of money were spent, including a fair amount against incumbents.People targeted by education candidates — Patrick, state Sen. Joan Huffman, state Rep. Mike Lang, to name three — came out fine. Some of the biggest targets of conservative activists — state Reps. Sarah Davis, Lyle Larson, Charlie Geren, Dan Flynn, Hugh Shine, J.D. Sheffield, Giovanni Capriglione and several more — lived to tell their electoral war stories.Sometimes money mattered. Sometimes it made no difference at all. Kathaleen Wall spent millions and missed the CD-2 runoff by 145 votes. Jim Hogan spent almost nothing but a filing fee and finished ahead of Trey Blocker, a lobbyist who spent hundreds of thousands of dollars trying to beat Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller. Miller finished first.The marquee race — the one that got most of the attention to this point, and probably the one that will be in the spotlight going forward — produced an unexpected result. Sema Hernandez and Edward Kimbrough combined to get 38.2 percent of the vote in the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate.That’s the race dominated by the presence of U.S. Rep Beto O’Rourke of El Paso, who is trying to do for Texas Democrats what John Tower did for Texas Republicans all the way back in 1961 — and to avoid the fate of the party’s last would-be savior, Wendy Davis, who ran for governor in 2014. Tower, a Republican, rocked the political world by winning the special election to replace Lyndon Johnson in the U.S. Senate.O’Rourke’s first foray into statewide politics was strongish — 60+ percent is a solid win. But it wasn’t a powerful showing, especially against unknown opponents. Davis got just 38.9 percent of the vote in the 2014 general election against Abbott. Republicans were quick to try to make a parallel narrative of O’Rourke’s first step.That brings us to turnout. Democrats improved their turnout, from a terrible, awful number — only 560,033 people showed up for the party’s 2014 primary — to a lousy one this year: 1, 036,942. That’s an 85.2 percent increase, but it’s not enough to scare anybody.Republican turnout topped 1.5 million, up 13.5 percent from 1.35 million four years ago. They improved less, but they started bigger. And they’re still outrunning the other big party by a 3-to-2 margin in turnout. Sharelast_img read more
