You VS Facebook

We’ve all heard about the Facebook Data Scandal over the last week or so, but what actually happens with the data stored by the social media giant?

Facebook says that when you delete say a photo, that it also gets deleted off their servers too… But a lot of people disagree, in fact a lot of people say that even when you delete something yourself that it will disappear from your personal view but that the deleted content still exists deep inside the Facebook servers and that it stays there not just for weeks or months but it stays there for years.

A lot of people also say that Facebook knows more about you than your mother or wife, because it gains data about you over years meaning it learns a lot about you in time! See Facebook actually gains information about you off the device you are using including your mobile phone, so it will take a look in your mobile phone contacts to put you in touch with friends and family that are using Facebook too.

You can see just how much data Facebook has on you by downloading it, so below we’ll give you the steps to download YOUR data –

  1. Log in to your Facebook account
  2. Click the drop down next to the ? at the top near notifications
  3. Go to Settings
  4. Click Download a copy of your Facebook data
  5. Then click Start My Archive
  6. Enter your Facebook password
  7. Click Submit

You may have to wait for some time but then you will see everything that Facebook has and knows about you.

CEO VS CTO: What’s The Difference?

In big companies, it seems there is always a CEO and a CTO… But what is the difference between both? We are exploring the difference below


CEO (Chief Executive Officer) – A chief executive officer (CEO) is the position of the most senior corporate officer, executive, leader or administrator in charge of managing an organisation. CEO’s lead a range of organisations, including public and private corporations, non-profit organisations and even some government organisations (e.g., Crown corporations). The CEO of a corporation or company typically reports to the board of directors and is charged with maximising the value of the entity, which may include maximising the share price, market share, revenues, or another element. In the non-profit and government sector, CEO’s typically aim at achieving outcomes related to the organisation’s mission, such as reducing poverty, increasing literacy, etc. Titles also often given to the holder of CEO position include president, chief executive (CE), managing director (MD) and representative director (RD) (in Japan).

:

CTO (Chief Technical Officer) – A chief technology officer (CTO), sometimes known as a chief technical officer, is an executive-level position in a company or other entity whose occupation is focused on scientific and technological issues within an organisation.


There you are, they sound similar… But really are very different!

Chrome Changes

Google Chrome is changing in July 2018, from then Chrome will label all insecure HTTP websites as Not Secure.. Previously Chrome would only label websites as Not Secure if someone filled a form in as they could have payment details in them and ask for personal info such as your name and email address, but as of July this year (2018) all websites using just HTTP as Not Secure giving all users notice that the website they are using isn’t a secure site. The only way to avoid this is if a website is secure. We have added an image to show the difference below:

To be sure that your website won’t have this on it, you need to make sure that your website uses the HTTPS protocol (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure).

With some website hosts this is free including LCN.com.
