Influencer Marketing Survey: How Do Influencers Generate Their Revenue

Image
Influencer Marketing Survey: How Do Influencers Generate Their Revenue It’s a well-known fact that the influencer marketing has been on a rise for the past few years in general and the social media market does not fall behind on this trend either. As the world of social media rose to its current state, people started using it more often as a medium to promote their brands and products. "A trusted referral influences people more than the best broadcast message" in the words of Mark Zuckerberg. However, influencer marketing is a relatively new concept in digital marketing and its regulation, monitoring and revenue are often questioned since it’s not absolutely clear as to how the influencers make their money via social media and whether they should be at all.

People began to slowly revolutionize their work spaces, according to their needs and technological advancements which were made alongside. Today's working state is also not permanent. It is bound to evolve too. Starting from the 1950s, when the concept of personal cabins did not exist to the limited colours allowed in office, those times seemed to be very tough.

Research Busts Popular Myths About Incognito Mode

Image
Research Busts Popular Myths About Incognito Mode The incognito, or more familiarly known as the private mode, is a feature in most of the modern web browsers, allowing users to use the server more privately, without recording history in the computer being used.  However, in a research conducted by the University of Chicago and the Leibniz University of Hanover, with a sample size of 450 participants, it was discovered that people incorrectly assumed that incognito mode was capable of doing much more than what it can actually do. Even though browsers, like Google Chrome, clearly mention that schools/employers/Internet providers can still have data on browsing history, people tend to ignore this warning quite easily. Following are some of the things people think private surfing does: Bookmarks saved in private mode do not persist after the mode is turned off.  The users location cannot be estimated by authorities (this can be done by using a VPN) Incognito provides protection agai

While this may seem trivial, and while it may seem that this problem affected only a small population, it shall not be forgotten why users block others in the first place.This activity on the domain is done primarily to avoid receiving harassing messages from harassers.

Google Speaks Up About the WSJ Allegation

Google Speaks Up About the WSJ Allegation The  Wall Street Journal  revealed on July 2nd, that it is in fact very common for third party users and businesses, even non-Google applications, to have access to users' private Gmail conversations. While they could not present any cases where this data was being mishandled, the news still demanded clarification in the light of recent Facebook's privacy scandal. Google, in an attempt to defend its actions, came forward the very next day, with a blog post.  Frey, director of company's security and the writer of this particular post, elaborated on how Google was far more responsible with all the user data it allowed other parties to access.

WordPress Vulnerable to Malicious Attacks!

Image
WordPress Vulnerable to Malicious Attacks! According to researchers at  RIPS Technologies , a security analysis company, the core functions of WordPress execute a vulnerability, which may allow limited-privileged users and account hackers to not only run arbitrary/random code on the server, but also to delete important files. While it may sound trivial, these malicious acts can potentially lead to the entire website being hijacked.  Although the researchers claim that they informed the management of the said domain a few weeks ago regarding the flaw, still no action has been taken against it, and the latest version of WordPress, i.e.  4.9.6 , continues to be affected by it.  The susceptibility lies in the “core deletion function” of the website, which accepts “unsanitized” user input. If interfered with, this could allow attackers to delete any file from the website, including the critical ones, like “.htaccess” and “wp-config.php” ones. The danger can somewhat be reduced by demandin
