Destroying Hard Drives And Keeping Social Profiles Safe

Protecting Your Social Accounts From Hackers

data destruction and recycling

There are hundreds of different ways hackers can steal your personal information from Social Media accounts and local network drives. For most people, this happens without them even knowing. By the time someone recognizes that there may be a security breach it is often times too late and the damage is done. The damage can vary from simple hacks for entertainment, or harm producing wiki leaks that make unsuspecting victims vulnerable to exposure. But what happens when your online social identity is compromised directly from the computer drive you work from? Many of us use an office computer at work, when those get upgraded what happens to the old hard drives? Typically, hard drives can be shredded or recycled. In the event that the computers you work on were not properly disposed of there is a chance that someone with extensive knowledge of computers and data recovery could access the hard drive and extract the data that existed on it while it was in your possession. The sensitive data that could be accessed might be things like credit card numbers, email accounts, social profiles, personal information like birth date, social security numbers, home address, bank statements, family pictures, and information about your children including personal records and location information like schools they attend. Keeping your data secure is extremely important to avoid identity theft and theft in general. You can destroy your hard drive yourself, there are various methods that work. You can use powerful magnets, drill holes through them, crush them with sledge hammers, melt them down, or any other destructive method you can think of. Just don’t recycle your computer without paying attention to the proper disposal of your hard drive. The rest of the computer can be melted down and repurposed for it’s plastics and metals. There are computer recycling companies that will come to your home or office and pick these items up for you, while other recycling companies offer drop off locations that allow you to pack up your vehicle with outdated unused electronic components and drop them off, something similar to a goodwill drop off station. Electronic recycling is big business and consumers should be aware about the importance of data removal prior to dropping off equipment with recyclers.

Hacked Social Profiles – What Could go Wrong?

social hackersWe know the problem with compromised bank accounts and social security numbers, but what about hacked social profiles? There are many reasons why you wouldn’t want  criminal going through your personal feed, but there are also some things beyond the obvious that you might not have thought of that should be considered as well. There have been stories of Facebook profiles being hacked, then inappropriate images and content being messaged out to the the friends connected to that profile. This could be very embarrassing if pornographic images were sent out to employers or co-workers, or even family members. There are also stories of profiles being hacked and money requests being made to friends and family. Criminals have reached out to friends and family members through messenger, posing as the account holder, pitching a story, and asking for funds to be transferred into an anonymous account. I am sure there are stories more terrifying and more insane then those I used as an example, but you need to be aware that there are plenty of ways a criminal could manipulate someone on the other end that was believing the messages were coming from you. Keeping your social profiles out of the hands of criminals is Social Knowledge you should be aware of.

Changing the hive mind — How social media manipulation affects everything: Tim Weninger at TEDxUND
Tim Weninger, an assistant professor of computer science and engineering at the University of Notre Dame, describes a study he conducted on reddit.com in which he had a computer program up-vote or down-vote the latest post every two minutes. As he explains, the experiment shows that early random up-votes makes a post 20 percent more likely to appear on the front page. His conclusion? Just one quarter of one percent of viewers determine what the rest of the site’s readers see—so don’t believe every trending content rating you see online.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Social Media’s Dark Side: How Facebook and Snapchat Try to Steal Our Self-Worth | Tristan Harris

Social Media’s Dark Side: How Facebook and Snapchat Try to Steal Our Self-Worth | Tristan Harris
In the 1970s, at the dawn of personal computers, people like Steve Jobs and the scientists at Xerox PARC talked about computers as “bicycles for our mind”. Sure, someone was going to make big money selling these hardware units, but the intention was at heart quite pure; computers would give our minds wheels to go farther than ever before. Our capabilities would be augmented by technology, and we would become smarter and more capable. That ethos has not really stuck, and today we find ourselves in a Pavlovian relationship with push notifications, incapacitated by the multi-directional pull on our attention spans.

We’ve made it through every new technological wave—newspapers, radio, TV, laptops, cell phones—without the social decay that was widely prophesied, but there’s something different about smartphones loaded with apps living in the palm of our hand, says tech ethicist Tristan Harris. It would be a mistake not to recognize how, this time, it really is different. Companies today are not more evil than they were in the 1970s, what’s changed is the environment they operate in: the attention economy, where the currency is your eyeballs on their product, for as long as possible—precious exposure that can be sold to advertisers. Unlike the neutral technology we once used, and could walk away from, today’s technology uses us. Behind every app—Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat—are 1,000 software designers working every day to update and find new psychological levers to keep you hooked to this product. The most powerful development has been that of ‘likes’, public feedback that externalized our self-worth onto a score card (this has reached new heights with Snapchat’s streaks, which research by Emily Weinstein at Harvard has shown puts extreme stress on kids and adolescents.) “These products start to look and feel more like media that’s about maximizing consumption and less like bicycles for our minds,” says Harris. Is it too late to do something about the attention economy? To find out more about Tristan Harris, head to http://tristanharris.com.

Well, there’s a really common misconception that technology is neutral and it’s up to us to just choose how to use it.

And so we’re sitting there and we’re scrolling and we find ourselves in this kind of wormhole and then we say, “Oh man, like, I should really have more self-control.” And that’s partially true, but what we forget when we talk about it that way is that there’s a thousand engineers on the other side of the screen whose job it was to get my finger to do that the next time. And there’s this whole playbook of techniques that they use to get us to keep using the software more.

Was design always this manipulative? It wasn’t always this way. In fact, back in the 1970s and the early ’80s at Xerox PARC when Steve Jobs first went over and saw the graphical user interface, the way people talked about computers and what computers were supposed to be was a “bicycle for our minds” that, here we are, you take a human being and they have a certain set of capacities and capabilities, and then you give them a bicycle and they can go to all these new distances, they’re empowered to go to these brand-new places and to do these new things, to have these new capacities.

And that’s always been the philosophy of people who make technology: how do we create bicycles for our minds to do and empower us to feel and access more?

Now, when the first iPhone was introduced it was also the philosophy of the technology; how do we empower people to do something more? And in those days it wasn’t manipulative because there was no competition for attention. Photoshop wasn’t trying to maximize how much attention it took from you—it didn’t measure its success that way.

And the Internet overall had been, in the very beginning, not designed to maximize attention, it was just putting things out there, putting things out there, creating these message boards.
It wasn’t designed with this whole persuasive psychology that emerged later. What happened is that the attention economy and this race for attention got more and more competitive, and the more competitive it got to get people’s attention on, let’s say a news website, the more they need to add these design principles, these more manipulative design tactics as ways of holding onto your attention.

And so YouTube goes from being a more neutral, honest tool of just, “Here’s a video,” to, “Oh, do you want to see these other videos? And do you want to auto-play the next video? And here’s some notifications…”

In episode 75, I answer the question of: How to handle a girl who’s always on social media?

[Intro Music]
Masculinity for the Intelligent Man. I am David Tian, Ph.D., and this is: Man Up!

[Music Fades]
Hey, this is David Tian, Ph.D. and this is episode 75 of man up! I’m in Singapore. It is a little bit rainy, just showing you the view, it’s kind of nice. Singapore is actually a very green city, especially for Asia. Beautiful air out here most of the time when Indonesia is not burning their forest. Anyway, so I’ll show you a little bit of view there. It’s a nice view.

Ok cool, so we got a question from the private Facebook group… actually this one was a private message. I don’t usually answer private messages but this one is pretty good. So I’m going to answer this. And it comes from Mark. He says, “how do I compete with the attention of good looking girls with receiving on social media. Just to go into more detail, between Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat and God only knows what else, girls are more and more on their phones posting pics and videos rather than participating into real life interactions. You take your girl out for dinner, she takes pictures of her food then watches her phone and see how many people liked it. Take them to an event, and then they have to check in then respond to everyone’s comments saying they are jealous. Thanks for your time, Mark.”

Okay, so I totally know where you’re coming from. Pretty much all of my friends, my female friends are really heavy users these different social media platforms. To be honest, even my clientele, the guys who are on online programs who are 25 years and under, I would say even in America – 30 and under – hardly ever use this thing anymore. They don’t really use the Macbook. A lot of girls I know who are under 25, except for work, they don’t usually open their own personal Macbooks or computers. Their always on their phones. This is just the future of the universe. The internet as you know it will no longer be consumed mostly through this. It will mostly perceived through wearables, the phone, so far as we carry it around everywhere. But soon, Google Glasses trying to make a fore in, dude but it will be everything. I got an apple watch usually. Oh, I just don’t have my accessories on. I usually have an apple watch on. Soon were going to have like smart pants, smart shirts, soon we’ll have that shift to consume information and experience reality in many ways this is good and bad. Get with the program, in a way, this is good. I’ve seen exactly where you’re coming from, Mark.
