Teenagers are flocking to mobile services that peel away many of the features at the heart of Facebook. Like most trends in the tech industry, the fragmentation of social media has started with the youngest users and is working its way up the age chain.

Even If You’re Wise To Phishing, Spear Phishing Could Still Fool You

Even If You're Wise To Phishing, Spear Phishing Could Still Fool You

At this point we pretty much all know what phishing emails look like and we’re resigned to the fact that we didn’t win the Micronesian lottery. We also know that we can’t buy a machine to instantly enlarge our sexual organs no matter how much personal information we provide. It was tough but we all came together in the mid-2000s and wised up.

But “spear phishing” is a different story. The whole point is to intelligently target individuals or like-minded groups. Spear phishing banners, links and messages use personalized specifics and are designed with legitimacy in mind. Phishers do especially well if they can trick employees of a large company or members of a major organization and then capitalize on the administrative privileges of those users’ accounts. This infographic from security recruiter Via Resource shows how phishing and spear phishing attacks continue to spread and highlights vulnerable parts of the web. [Via Resource Blog]

The Threats That Literally Surround Facebook

Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/threats-that-literally-surround-facebook-2013-5

The tech world is mystified and frightened by teens. At the same time, tech companies are desperately catering to them, knowing that teens will shape the industry’s future.

In a recent report from BI Intelligence, we analyze how teens and their mobile-first habits threaten to upend the tech industry.

We specifically dig into how established Internet companies like Facebook are threatened by teen audiences and their tendency to fragment across platforms.

Teenagers are flocking to mobile services that peel away many of the features at the heart of Facebook. Like most trends in the tech industry, the fragmentation of social media has started with the youngest users and is working its way up the age chain.

Right now, cross-posting softens some! of the edges of competition. For example, your Tumblr and Pinterest updates can automatically be cross-posted to Facebook. However, given the spate of conflicts between networks recently, one shouldn’t assume cross-posting will always be allowed.

As we argue in our report, we may be witnessing is the unraveling of a unitary, centralized social media landscape, dominated by Facebook, into a set of multipolar nodes. Facebook warded off the Instagram threat by buying the company, but it won’t always be possible for the company to neutralize threats with acquisitions.

The data is compiled from over 3,000 merchants and almost half a billion transactions over four years.

It probably won’t surprise you that November offers the biggest discounts (an average of 5.99%), followed by post-holiday January (4.95%), but the calendar also warns you that March is a dismal time to shop if you’re looking for sales (2.76%).

The best days to buy are Tuesday and Thursday. Forget big savings on Sunday.

And new companies (just opened or under two years old) offer the biggest deals versus established ones. So don’t wait to shop at a new site.

Here’s the whole graphic, which includes which states offer the best deals (click to expand, right click to save):
The Best Times to Shop Online If You Want The Most Savings

Keep in mind that there are specific days and months that are best for particular shopping categories (see our best time to buy anything guide or this handy infographic). If you’re just planning your shopping in general, though, consider waiting until the days and months with the highest discounts.
