Model visualization (model-vis) is a novel tool that can help us better understand advanced statistical analyses (Wickham et al 2015). In this talk, I’ll apply the principles of model-vis to social networks and their models. Some questions I propose to answer are: What exactly is the “data space” of a social network and how can we view models for social networks in that data space? How can we explore multiple network models in a collection simultaneously? And, what visualizations are available to us to better understand the algorithms used to fit these often incredibly complicated models to an observed social network? Biography Sam is a PhD candidate in Statistics at Iowa State University, where she works with Heike Hofmann on statistical graphics, visual inference, social network visualization, and on human factors in forensic statistics. She is also the co-founder and co-organizer of R-Ladies Ames, and the co-author and maintainer of the R package geomnet.
Social Networking Sites kills romance?
With the growing trend in the social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and more, it becomes imperative to keep your online safety and privacy in mind. It has become almost impossible to realize with whom you are sharing your data, since it gets shared and re-shared many times. There could be certain updates which might be confidential and personal that you may unwittingly pass on to scammers, fraudsters and phishers. However, it is not as frightening as it may seem if you follow certain tips to stay safe online.
Top 5 Online Privacy Tips
Read The Privacy Policies – or At Least Others’ Summaries of Them
Control The Settings
Ensure to change the settings so that your information is mostly confidential by default. Make sure that your profiles and information is managed well so that your data cannot be accessed easily online. This means that your settings should be configured such that your phone numbers, address, email ID and more does not get disclosed. It is for you to decide whether you should even restrict your updates to certain contacts only. However, your business account requires the most stringent moderation so that your identity and information is always protected.
To Share Or Not To Share
It is not important to have your phone number online to the public. You can choose to restrict your data to few people only. This might lead to unnecessary ordeals in the form of nuisance or irresponsible callers.
Handle Information Sensibly
Use your common sense to judge whether placing information is suitable or not. Do you really need to share certain data? This is for you to analyze. Refrain from doing so if you think that it may cause some trouble or harassment.
Certain online applications can locate you and know exactly where you are. This may cause some people to unnecessarily harass you. They might even come to know that you are alone in your house or even absent.
In conclusion, with the increase in the number of users participating in social networks, the possibility of data misuse is also on the rise. Fraudsters especially hackers can obtain significant data which might otherwise be quite confidential. Ensure never to offer more information on such places than what is necessary. You might unknowingly invite trouble which might dampen your social status or even cause data leakage.
On a final note, always have a virus scanner running in the background (this is called “real-time protection”). Social networking sites are increasingly targeted by malicious programmers who write viruses that will attempt to steal your personal information, and even spread themselves to your friends, posing as a post or update from you. If you suspect a virus has already infected your machine, locate a virus removal expert. Computer Security and privacy depends on a clean computer as a foundation for web surfing. Learn to identify when your computer may be compromised.

MBA LEVEL: How to Write a Social Media Marketing Strategy–That SELLS.
Social marketing success is measured by the benefits of the marketing campaigns to the society rather than the financial gain or increase in sales. Social marketing seeks to educate the society on certain issues and suggesting solutions to societal problems, and not entirely promoting certain goods or services. Funds spent on social marketing cannot be recovered in financial terms, but in terms of making the lives of people better.
To ensure your social marketing success, it is important to define the aims of your campaign. What do you wish to gain from this marketing? A reduction in the number of motor accidents is increasing awareness of road safety regulations or any other. The aims must be specific enough and numeric values attached if possible; that is the only way to measure the success of the marketing successfully. For instance, the aim could be reducing road accidents by 15% by the end of the year, by doing this we can measure at the end of the year if this has been successful or not.
After defining the aims of the social marketing, you need to identify your audience. What age group should the audience encompass? Which media will be more appropriate in reaching them? The methods that will work for young people may not work for the elderly. If the audience is online, then the internet will do but if not, another method has to be found to get the message to them.
The approach to the marketing will depend on the audience. If the audiences are online and are part of social networking groups, then perhaps Facebook or twitter will be a good medium. If they love to watch photos, then you could create your campaigns as photos and tag them in. You could also use banner adverts and Google Adwords for the elderly internet users who are not part of social networking sites.
Finally, you need to analyze your methods used and results obtained and check them against the aims stated. If the aims are being met, then all is well but if not, you may need to rethink the strategy. It is also important to determine where things went wrong; maybe you are targeting the wrong audience or using the wrong methods. For instance, targeting an anti-smoking campaign at minors will not yield any results. This is because they are barred from smoking by law and so a campaign in that direction will not change anything. It is sometimes very difficult to set out the aims of the campaign, but as time goes on, the picture becomes clearer so aspects can be adjusted to fit.
Social marketing success makes society better. For example, a success in the seatbelt campaign will lead to the reduction in fatalities in road accidents, thus saving a lot of lives. In recent times, social marketing has become more effective online that anywhere else. Campaign leaders can have forums online where members can contribute their ideas on the issues and help sensitize other people. Online methods deliver messages faster than print and electronic media.
