With well over one billion accounts and years in the social spotlight, we’ve got to admit: Facebook did well when it comes to not being the centre of daily attention of all the security journalists on the planet. They avoided major scandals, and dealt well with all forms of hacks that got thrown at them. We also have Apple and their iOS: famous for being pretty solid when it comes to protecting users against hackers. Then this week happens in the life of the interwebbs. Both of the services get a slap across the face. Facebook and Apple hacked? Is this an armageddon? Hackers don’t sleep. They recharge.Posted August 20, 2013

When we talk to you guys at conferences and meet our users at various meet-ups, we often get into the conversation starting with: “So why would I back up my social media?”, “Is my social data ever going to disappear?” As we get more and more of you guys on the platform, and since the social backup is now almost a mainstream concept, we get those questions less often, however occasionally they still crop up. We hope this blog post shines a light and clarifies any doubts.
First there was the Biltongate. The famous New York Times journalist Nick Bilton demystified the sudden drop in engagement on Facebook, blaming it on the rise of promoted posts and Facebook suppressing posts that were not sponsored in favour of dollars. Well, it’s a stock market listed business now and investors want to see their money double, but that’s not the subject of this post. What I do want to write about what exactly is happening with the news feed. Well, as much as I know anyway.Posted August 07, 2013
Shared economy is a great, new phenomenon. Companies like Uber, AirBnb and TaskRabbit are leading the way, but sharing seems to permeate into all services and products. Contrary to popular belief, we actually enjoy sharing. I have recently come across a growing phenomenon of shared Facebook accounts. I experienced it the first time, when my 14-year-old daughter complained about being bullied on Facebook. I asked who was saying nasty things about her, so that I could investigate it further, and she told me she doesn’t actually know, because the offender has an open Facebook account. Huh? “You know, everyone knows her password and we log in when we want and post and respond to comments.. so it could have been anyone..”Posted August 06, 2013
