Cyber Threats Are Looming Over Social Media Networks

The past two years witnessed numerous Internet security horrors; a few on the social media front leading security experts to argue that social media is going to be new targets for cyber criminals. A recent data revealed that hackers are using popular social networking sites  Facebook and Twitter to launch targeted phishing and malware campaigns.

The Bot Army- Favored Weapons of Hackers 
Cyber crooks rely a lot on bot armies to successfully carry out their malicious (phishing or malware) campaigns. Internet bots are fashioned to look like credible social media profiles; usually having relevant popular content and viral videos that can reach many users.
There are two different types of Internet bots:
A bot account – This account is created and operated remotely via a software.
A sock puppet -  This is a bogus account operated by a person impersonating someone else.
Once the bot army is ready, the hacker will decide the target. Attacks could focus on specific organizations, a company's customers, or the general public through trendjacking. After choosing a method of attack, the bots are connected to the targeted victims by filling their profiles with comical images or attention-grabbing content.

Malware or Phishing 

Now the hacker gets to make a choice : whether to launch a phishing campaign or a malware attack? Phishing campaign compromises organizations and their customers via front door while malware attack compromises customers via back door. Though the methods are different, either way the enterprise is breached via social media.
If the hacker decides to deploy a phishing campaign, he or she will create a phishing site disguised as a credible site. This website is then shared with the users, and they are asked to share critical information if they decide to click  the web link.
To start a malware assault, a hacker will hide the malware (bought or created) on sites that can download without user's knowledge. A shortened link to the masked malware is shared with users over social media. Victims that click the corrupt link consequently download the malware and the hacker can now access the system. You do not want either of the scenarios taking place to you or businesses you use.
If an infected user connects to an enterprise network, hackers will be able to access information from anywhere across the organization.

Keeping Social Media a Safer Place

Never assume that you will not be tricked in any of the social media sites you use. Eight in every ten individuals are duped by one of the above mentioned schemes. As a matter of fact,  one third of the data breaches last year were from social media.
Be wary of what you share on your social networking sites; never post personal information that could be used against you. Educate yourself on how to avoid phishing mails and think twice before clicking a link sent by someone.
Get a strong antivirus software for all your devices to safegurad your information and your gadgets. Virus protection is paramount in today's malware-ridden world. There are many options to choose from; one of the top favorites is Comodo AntiVirus for Android.  Stay one step ahead of the cyber crooks before they can lay their hands on you.

Managing an ethically inefficient group of people

A successful life:

The world we live in is no desirable place to dwell, all things considered. There are so many problems and diseases that we’d be better suited to the climate of Mars than we are on Earth. In order to be successful, you need to go to different lengths and overcome all sorts of hurdles. It takes courage, dedication, resilience, humility and most importantly, integrity to be able to lead your way out of trouble. It’s a well-known fact that we can’t end up anywhere in this world on our own; if we want to feel submissive and just get the easy money, then we can just get the first job in the newspaper by applying for it; but if it’s something bigger that we have in mind, then we need to overcome a lot more bigger hurdles and climb a lot steeper mountains. To build something out of scratch requires a lot of self-motivation, confidence and of-course devoted team members who are willing to do whatever it takes to make both ends meet.

Managing people:

It’s not the sort of world where we can just go out and hire the best people there are at the start of
things. Maybe if you are a multi-million dollar businessman and things are looking very bright for your company, then the best people will come you to get hired. You will then not have the most difficult job as a leader; but often it doesn’t happen that way. We have to make do with whatever comes our way and often it’s a lot less than the best. Managing, ethically and capability-wise deficient people, takes a lot of doing. Let’s today, then discuss how to do it.


No two persons are the same and when it comes to a whole workforce you know you are going to be
dealing with people from all ethnic backgrounds. The first thing that needs to be kept in mind is to treat everybody equally. Equality goes a long way and people then start to believe in themselves and your judgment more importantly as a manager. IF you don’t treat everybody in the same way or do some racial discrimination, then you are not setting the right examples.

Encouragements and motivation:

Another thing to keep in mind and always do is to motivate people to give input. If a person feels valued, then they are more expected to give the best inputs and produce the best outputs as well. A person who thinks that they are left out of the loop will most definitely just resort to keeping their mouth shut most of the times and as a manager of a group, you will not want that. Also, encouraging people by giving them incentives whenever a job is done valiantly is something very good too. IF you don’t give people what they deserve, you are not going to get what you deserve either.

To conclude, if all these things are kept in mind, then it’s highly likely that people are going to perform their best.

Internet is not just for fun, It build our future

The wonders of the internet!

The internet has literally brought education centers, shopping stores and much more conveniences to our living rooms. We live in a technologically advanced era where we can easily learn whatever we want by sitting in the comfort of our homes, by the miracle we call the internet!  
It has been noted that the number of students enrolling in online courses has steadily been increasing over the past few years. Many universities, to accommodate this increasing demand, have started complete distance learning programs, instead of just one or two online courses. 

Let us discuss some merits of this system that has taken the world by storm. Moreover, to make a fair argument, discussed here are some demerits too.

The merits of learning online

In face to face instruction, the main barrier is location and time. The students living in developing countries do not have the luxury to jump on a plane and take classes on the campus. Moreover, the rising fee of these conventional universities is so high that all students cannot afford them. These online courses give students like these a chance to take courses of their choice, which are at par with the world’s best ranking universities at the convenience of their homes. 
Free Online courses
Online Education system

Furthermore, students have the chance to learn at their own pace and learning level. These courses provide the option of flexibility in learning schedules. Online learning can also accommodate different styles of learning by incorporating multimedia and various activities. These also help to build up better retention power in students. 
Nowadays, students can easily find assignment assistance service provider agencies online that not just provide them with the needed guidance, but they also have tutors that teach them step by step ways to instill more concepts. 

The demerits of learning online:

The greatest worry concerning this system is that students who do not know how to learn on their own become lazy and end up learning nothing. As there is not a structured schedule, students tend to get confused or just indolent when it comes to deadlines. Another problem that has been reported is that students miss that interaction with their peers and teachers and feel isolated. In short, they miss the whole college experience where they get to network and make connections that last for a life time. 
One impertinent concern is plagiarism and cheating. As the system is not regulated as yet, so surveillance is less and students can easily copy materials. 
One more concern is that slow internet connections and old hardware make it very difficult for students to access the needed materials on time.

Some conclusive remarks! 

Like all scientific inventions, this invention or service has both merits and demerits, but in the end it all depends upon how we, the users harness the power in the right way! We can either use it in the wrong way and it will eventually harm us or we can make the correct use and exploit it to the fullest to learn and grow.

Put simply, a landing page is that web page at which the visitor first arrives directed from your ad. A landing page is distinct from the entire website and it is generally designed for a single and focused objective or purpose. There shouldn’t be any global navigation offered on the landing page in order to keep it tied to the website. The reason is evident. You would naturally want to limit the options for your visitors to navigate to other sites. This will help you in your own conversion goal. In order to get good conversion rates, the first thing you need to ensure is a good landing page design company.

Importance of landing pages
