Understanding the social web - and why it (a) wasn't started by the kids; and (b) isn't only for kids, either

Published in: Education, Technology, Business
  • Elaine - it's a state of mind. I was stuck behind an old biddy in a cell phone shop once; no matter how hard he tried, the youngster behind the counter couldn't get her to understand how to SMS. Eventually, in frustration (I had been waiting a LOOOONG time), I said to her 'Why let the KIDS have all the fun?'

    She got it on the next try.

    Perhaps you should show your friend this presentation. I *love* that people call me a silver surfer. It's like being called Oom or even Tata (yes, I've had that) - MAN! - what an honour

  • I've been trying to get a 55-year-old friend to learn email to stay in touch with her daughters............I wish she was as open to the fun and the learning as these wonderful old dears. It opens up such an exciting new world!

Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works. 2. Anything that’s invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it. 3. Anything invented after you’re thirty-five is against the natural order of things. Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt

  38. 38. “Facebook, in fact, is the biggest surveillance-based enterprise in the history of mankind. It knows far, far more about you than the most intrusive government has ever known about its citizens. “… What Facebook does is watch you, and then use what it knows about you and your behaviour to sell ads. I’m not sure there has ever been a more complete disconnect ‘between what a company says it does – ‘connect’, ‘build communities’ – and the commercial reality.” John Lanchester, You Are the Product London Review of Books, Vol. 39 No. 16: 17 August 2017 www.lrb.co.uk

  63. 63. Planet of the phones - The Economist (editorial, 28 February, 2015) “Smartphones matter partly because of their ubiquity. They have become the fastest-selling gadgets in history, outstripping the growth of the simple mobile phones that preceded them. They outsell personal computers four to one. Today about half the adult population owns a smartphone; by 2020, 80% will. Smartphones have also penetrated every aspect of daily life. The average American is buried in one for over two hours every day. Asked which media they would miss most, British teenagers pick mobile devices over TV sets, PCs and games consoles. Nearly 80% of smartphone-owners check messages, news or other services within 15 minutes of getting up. About 10% admit to having used the gadget during sex.” https://www.economist.com/news/leaders/21645180-smartphone-ubiquitous-addictive-and-transformative-planet-phones You Are the Product - John Lanchester “So Facebook knows your phone ID and can add it to your Facebook ID. It puts that together with the rest of your online activity: not just every site you’ve ever visited, but every click you’ve ever made – the Facebook button tracks every Facebook user, whether they click on it or not. Since the Facebook button is pretty much ubiquitous on the net, this means that Facebook sees you, everywhere. Now, thanks to its partnerships with the old-school credit firms, Facebook knew who everybody was, where they lived, and everything they’d ever bought with plastic in a real-world offline shop.​ All this information is used for a purpose which is, in the final analysis, profoundly bathetic. It is to sell you things via online ads.” https://www.lrb.co.uk/v39/n16/john-lanchester/you-are-the-product I used to think social media was a force for good. Now the evidence says I was wrong - Matt Haig “More and more, it’s clear these platforms create divisions, exploit our insecurities and risk our health. They’re as bad as the tobacco industry.” https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/sep/06/social-media-good-evidence-platforms- insecurities-health Security in-a-box - digital security tools and tactics web site “Remember that social networking sites are owned by private businesses, and that they make their money by collecting data about individuals and selling that data on, particularly to third party advertisers. When you enter a social networking site, you are leaving the freedoms of the internet behind and are entering a network that is governed and ruled by the owners of the site. Privacy settings are only meant to protect you from other members of the social network, but they do not shield your data from the owners of the service. Essentially you are giving all your data over to the owners and trusting them with it.” https://securityinabox.org/en/guide/social-networking/
