Privacy on Social Media

Social Networks are great for allowing people to share posts (thoughts, interests, pictures and videos etc.) with friends. But you really don’t want to share your posts with the entire world now do you? I know at times you might feel like you have nothing to hide, but you must be aware of the fact that advertisers, spammers, and cyber-stalkers (Hackers) can view your non-private posts, which can lead to some security threats, most commonly identity fraud and those annoying sales calls that keep draining the living life out of your phone.

Did You Know You Can Now Make A Free Call Over Facebook?? “An Evolution Of Stalking” … By Pamela Kunene

IF IT’S FREE… IT’S FOR ME…

A few years ago MXIT was popular for its incredibly data-light benefit. It won us over so effortlessly as it offered us an affordable means of sending messages instead of using relatively more expensive SMS options. Hence it was the largest social network in South Africa, until it was knocked from the top spot by Facebook (Enter Zuckerburg). More social networks are launched almost every year with amazing features, but the one that stands out is always the one able to connect people better and faster with a unique quality featured service.

2013 Facebook launched its free voice calling option for its Facebook Messenger App, in the United States and Canada and later rolled out the service throughout the World. While the calling service is Free it uses your data connection to make calls, so if you are using a WI-FI Connection at McDonalds, Spur or KFC your call is practically free, this is too awesome right? I know :). However if you are using 3G data connection, the data charges will apply, but you still get to benefit because if you don’t have airtime but have data bundles remaining, you will be able to make that almost free call.

Facebook just single handedly changed the game once more, innovation after innovation the keep redefining the virtual playing field. Like many I hated the Messenger App as I was literally forced to have it or else no messages. Couple of month down the line I’m like hell yeh!! If it’s free, it’s for me.

Re-shaped Educational System

In today’s world, if your company is not keeping pace with new innovation and technology it is likely that it will not last very long. In order to survive a digital society, companies must embrace and keep pace with changes in innovation and technology, this will enable them to grow and ultimately succeed in a digital economic climate that clearly shows no signs of slowing down.

I remember back in school I used to ponder (okay okay I used to wonder), isn’t there anything that can be done with this heavy backpack on my shoulder. When the Gauteng Provincial government announced the launch of the e-Learning solution aimed at allowing learners to access e-books on Tables replacing printed textbooks, I couldn’t help but commend them for such an innovative way of minimizing the heavy backpacks learners have to carry around to school.
