Privacy Time Again : Check Your Facebook Settings -

Still important to all Facebook users is this article by Sarah Perez at the New York Times online:

The 3 Facebook Settings Every User Should Check Now.

Read the whole article here - it could be important to you. Really. Make sure you are not divulging information to the world that you do not want to divulge.

We would especially add for those privacy settings that you check your settings for applications - because "applications" of your friends may have more access to your data than you are aware of if you do not prohibit it.

Murdoch Finalizes Paywall for Two British Papers -

Matthew Saltmarsh writes that:
"News International, the British arm of News Corp., said Friday that two of its publications, The Times and The Sunday Times of London, would begin charging readers using its Web sites in June."
Is pay-for-news going to work long term? We are skeptical. Companies applying pre-digital-era pay-for-news philosophies are going to have a difficult time in the new social media world. They may get takers from the older ranks of people accustomed to paying for newspapers, but they have little or chance with upcoming generations, who will be attracted by new and modern payment scenarios which match "the times". The Times is way behind those times.
