I Have Been Pwned… Five Freaking Times and Counting!

Joel Latto

When I started drafting this blog post a while back, the title was “I Have Been Pwned Twice Already”. That number has since risen to five, and I’m assuming it will continue to rise as old breaches come to light and some long forgotten accounts get popped. So far, no immediate harm has been caused to me from these breaches, and I’ll contribute that silver lining to the reactive and since then proactive steps I’ve taken to ensure that’s the case now and in the future. This is how also you can harden your online presence against these (inevitable) breaches.

Yritykset. Näillä yksisarvisilla kannattaa ratsastaa somessa vuonna 2018


Sain suuren kunnian osallistua Kurion some-markkinoinnin trendit 2018 –koosteeseen.

Tuijottaessani tyhjää paperia, mieleni teki aloittaa copy-pastella vuoden takaisesta kirjoituksestani, sillä koen, ettei juuri mikään ole muuttunut – paitsi markkinointialustojen ahneus, joissain yrityksissä pesivät epärealistiset odotukset sosiaalisen median sateentekijän roolista sekä vastuullisuuden rummuttaminen suurena pelastajana, lopputulosten latistuessa keppihevosteluun näennäisillä arvoilla.

Ehkäpä kokonaiskuva ei ole kuitenkaan näin synkkä.

Tässä vastaukseni Kurion trendiraportiin:

1) Merkittävin some-markkinoinnin kehityssuunta/trendi vuodelle 2018

Jos some-palveluiden virta on jo nyt täyttynyt videoista, tulemme uppoamaan entistäkin syvempään mereen. Koska liikkuvan kuvan vastaanottajilla on jo nyt haasteita keskittyä katsomaan joka suunnalta hyökyvää videoiden aaltoa, useiden minuuttien mittaisten videoiden rinnalla tullaan näkemään entistäkin enemmän muutamien sekuntien mittaisia tekeleitä, mainoksia, joilla brändit pyrkivät entistäkin tiiviimmässä muodossa tekemään lähtemättömän vaikutuksen.

Näiden joukossa myös Cinemagraph-tekniikalla toteutettuja kuvia tullaan näkemään nykyistä enemmän. Niissä jokin yksittäinen asia liikkuu samalla kun muu osa kuvasta on still-kuvaa.

Facebookin live-lähetykset muistuttavat enemmissä määrin kotimaisten kaupallisten tv-kanavien 15 vuoden takaisia chat-ohjelmia…

Date does not count untold stories…

Online Journalism Blog

Peter Geoghegan Peter Geoghegan

In a guest post Jane Haynes speaks to investigative journalist Peter Geoghegan of the award-winning news site The Ferret about data, contacts and “nosing up the trousers of power”.

When the Scottish Government announced last month that it was banning fracking, it was a moment to savour for a group of journalists from an independent news site in the heart of the country.

The team from investigative cooperative The Ferrethad been the first news organisation to reveal plans by nine energy companies to bid for licences to extract shale gas from central Scotland.

Using a combination of contact-led information and FOI requests, they uncovered the extent of the ambitions to dig deep into Scottish soil.

Firms target more of central Scotland for fracking

It was part of a steady flow of fracking stories from the Ferret team, ensuring those involved in making decisions were in no doubt of their responsibilities and recognised that every…

Online Journalism Blog

tesselationIn a guest post for OJB, Steve Carufel interviews Dutch data journalist Thomas de Beusabout visualisation, storytelling — and useful new tools for data journalists.

Insights and relevant statistics can get lost in visual translation, so Thomas de BeusColourful Facts is a great place to start thinking more about clarity and your audience — and less about spectacular graphic design (although you do not want to forego attractiveness entirely).
