Watch Dogs - Digital Shadow

by gregg
a promotion for the game Watch Dogs which uses your Facebook data to guess your location, your income, and your passwords. I maintain fairly restrictive privacy settings, and most of the page didn't predict much, but the income prediction was a $20,000 range almost perfectly centered on my actual salary. If that weren't enough, it also combs through your friends to identify which you interact with more than vice versa ("obsessions"), which interact more with you ("stalkers"), and which tag you a lot, spreading your personal information more widely ("liabilities").

Facebook s’offre WhatsApp pour 19 milliards de dollars, Actualités

by bouilloire

« WhatsApp est un produit d’extrêmement haute qualité, un réseau de communication très important »

Je la trouve plutôt mal codée sur Windows Phone pourtant. Pour 19 milliards, j'attends quand même vachement mieux qu'une batterie qui se vide en quelques heures d'utilisation.

A l’heure actuelle, il en gagne un million de plus chaque jour. La barre du milliard pourrait donc être passée d’ici moins de deux ans.

C'est beau de se projeter deux ans dans le futur comme ça. Surtout dans ce domaine où il suffit qu'un concurrent plus efficace arrive sur le marché. Allez, Mark, il faut y croire. Tu as déjà les oreilles qui sifflent de toute façon.

danah boyd | apophenia » Social Steganography: Learning to Hide in Plain Sight

by sbrothier
Carmen and her mother are close. As far as Carmen’s concerned, she has nothing to hide from her mother so she’s happy to have her mom as her ‘friend’ on Facebook. Of course, Carmen’s mom doesn’t always understand the social protocols on Facebook and Carmen sometimes gets frustrated. She hates that her mom comments on nearly every post, because it “scares everyone away…Everyone kind of disappears after the mom post…It’s just uncool having your mom all over your wall. That’s just lame.” Still, she knows that her mom means well and she sometimes uses this pattern to her advantage. While Carmen welcomes her mother’s presence, she also knows her mother overreacts. In order to avoid a freak out, Carmen will avoid posting things that have a high likelihood of mother misinterpretation. This can make communication tricky at times and Carmen must work to write in ways that are interpreted differently by different people.
