Lately, many of our friends and/or clients have fallen victim to various Social Media hackers and scammers, and unfortunately lost control of their accounts.
Hackers or scammers can strike in a variety of ways, so we’ve listed the most common ones below so you can be precautious.
– Phishing Attacks: Never respond to emails, DMs (Instagram messages), Social Media posts, etc., that ask for personal information, passwords, account numbers or PINs. Official agencies will NEVER ask you for such sensitive information through these avenues.
– Suspicious links: An acquaintance of yours who works in make-up sent you a message on Instagram asking you to vote for them in an online contest for… make-up? Don’t click on the link they sent you for ANY REASON! Such links may also be sent to you by e-mail. Always check the sender’s email.
The newly-minted head of Instagram, who swooped in to replace co-founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger after their surprise exit last month, now holds the keys to the photo-sharing platform’s kingdom of one billion users. But it’s not just the users Mosseri has to worry about. He’s now in charge of Facebook’s most valuable asset, the chunk of the company Mark Zuckerberg still brags about on earnings reports, the piece of the Facebook ecosystem that investors look to with relief.
Burger King and McDonald’s may be arch rivals, but today, the King seems to be extending an olive branch to Ronald McDonald.
Burger King is looking to capitalize on the popularity of clown costumes on Halloween by making clowns the center of its cheeky marketing campaign on the dress-up holiday — in a not-so-subtle dig at McDonald’s.
Leonardo DiCaprio nearly broke the internet when he finally won an Oscar in 2016: The announcement was the most-tweeted minute of an Oscars broadcast ever, with 440,000 tweets per minute. Whether someone in this year’s telecast tops Leo’s history-making moment remains to be seen, but social media is a brand’s best bet to win big during awards season.
He’s belted out show tunes with Lin-Manuel Miranda while puttering around Hell’s Kitchen and warbled along with Adele while squiring her around London’s Kensington district, and now James Corden is giving his pipes a workout in Downtown L.A. in a pair of promos for the 59th Annual Grammy Awards.
Instagram has a new look, but its users don’t seem to like it.
The photo social media platform got rid of its iconic camera logo and replaced it with a minimalistic design that slightly resembles a camera. The colors are also different. It’s now a combination of purple, pink, orange and yellow hues.
On “Late Late Show” on CBS, host James Corden invited Adele to take part in his recurring Carpool Karaoke segment in a much-hyped appearance — and of course Adele didn’t disappoint. We have to assume that productivity in offices across the world will take a serious hit today as those who missed the broadcast catch up by watching the glorious, ridiculously entertaining segment, which runs nearly 15 minutes, online at their desks.
