The Price of Celebrity on Social Media

Does anyone deserve to be trolled? We would say no. No-one deserves to be trolled. No-one deserves to have hoards of strangers directing abusive, threatening or malicious content at them. However... not everyone agrees with us. I’ve trawled through a few comment sections on articles that discuss the trolling and abuse certain celebrities have received on social networks, and a common sentiment is that if one chooses to place themselves in the public eye and interact with their adoring fans online, they should have to put up with the abuse that comes with it.

White Paper: How to pattern and predict human behaviour online

Where obvious foul language may often be blocked, the ever changing languages and offensive slang used by adolescents today slides through the net. Where with some parental controls pornography may not be accessible, predators and groomers who lurk on social media cannot be prevented and blocked from interacting with your child just using standard parental controls. Where device use and internet access may be restricted, parental controls do not prevent cyber bullying and hurtful content being shared by peers and strangers. Read More.

Parental controls: just not good enough!

Same same, but different

Lets get science-y for a minute, shall we? Homophily (i.e., "love of the same") is the tendency of individuals to associate and bond with similar others. Like attracts like, birds of a feather flock together, same same but different; we’re all aware of the notion that people are attracted to those who are similar to them. Relationships, whether they be of the friendship, romantic or even business variety are based upon common factors shared between each party. While some connections appear to bear no homophilic bonding, relationships are more commonly generated through at least one commonality. Read More.

We are the angry mob!

Mob mentality. There are examples of it everywhere. The London Riots of 2011 are the perfect example of leaping on the mob bandwagon as violence spread like the plague across the capital, many of the perpetrators knowing and caring little about the reason it had started in the first place. But we all want to be apart of these events, don’t we? We like to be involved, give our opinion, throw in our two-cents worth and consider the consequences later. Read More.

Sell the dream, not the nightmare

A few years ago I was talking to a friend about some troubles I was having with another friend at the time, and in the middle of my woeful story, she stopped me, mid-sentence and said "But you look as thick as thieves on Facebook.

She was perplexed as to why wasn't I airing my dirty laundry online for all the world to see, and instead pretending everything was ok. Well... BECAUSE THAT'S NOT HOW SOCIAL MEDIA WORKS! Read More.

You are unique, but your behaviour is not!

You grow up being told by your parents that you are special. You are unique; one of a kind, and by all means, they are right. Genetically you are completely unique. But your uniqueness doesn't mean you aren't predictable. Everyone's behaviour can be patterned using a series analytical techniques. That's what we do at SafeToNet. Read More.
