Who is responsible for Facebook data leak

YOU!!!

If you use loads of free apps for productivity, if a phone call is too much costly for you, if buying a license always widen your eyelids more than normal, this is YOU!!!
The recent Facebook-Cambridge Analytica  incident is much of your story than Facebook. The company Facebook, CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Cambridge Analytica are still getting there ROI. I doubt if Facebook traffic has truly depleted. Many of us read Facebook Users' Data leak news inside Facebook, blog it and share on Facebook, so where is the company on loss???
Personal Privacy Protection is first responsibility of first person, i.e. YOU!!!.

You met someone today from a freelancing site, person sounds useful to you because he / she is willing to work for free, in the next moment you jump to conclusion and share Whatsap number  including all your work information. You don't bother to verify about this newly made friend in question.
You have many apps, preferably free app in your app drawer, and everything is in your reach. Your app never go offline even when you are sleeping. Data is cheap so why to take pain of logout and log in plus you have added an habit of notification first good morning in your daily routine.
If you are doing all this, chances are you will suffer sooner or later.
This is not fault of app, app developers or internet companies alone. Rather, you are also equally responsible.
The craze of things like Whatsapp is so huge that at times institutions like Banks ask for scanned documents through it. The people working in backend simply don't understand what can be taken through Whatsapp and what not. This is not fault of app but result of cheap manpower and untrained human resources.
This happened to me personally when a customer service asked me for information over Whatsapp. Obviously I won't like to use such a service that count on a messenger for information exchange or at least I will try to take care of it.
Sometimes back I have written whether HTTPS is a hallmark of security?
Nothing is Hallmark of security, if you do not use your subconscious for information exchange.
Definitely companies should be blamed and punished for incidents like Facebook-Cambridge Analytica. There is no doubt about this. This is responsibility of an organization to protect its users interests. But up to what extent? Should organization will be blamed alone???
Any app maker in the world including you and me says, download free, enjoy free. No app maker says download and enjoy mindlessly.
The Facebook-Cambridge Analytica made everyone vulnerable across world. Go and do necessary changes in your most important accounts before you turn out a victim.
HTTPS or any such security certificate is not a hallmark of security if people working inside such companies do not bother to take care for its customers interests.
We can not go back in the stone age, we need to go with the world so don't left behind but in which direction?
We cannot control others but we can control our habits.
Do not share sensitive information with strangers.
Do not share sensitive information over an app, preferably newly launched.
Do not share information over chat messengers, they are made for talk, gossip, friendship and knowledge exchange.
There are app for every purpose. When you share an information over an app for a purpose perhaps its travel through much secure route because the app maker know its purpose and secure it that way, so its possibly in better hands.

Why to discuss your stock market numbers over a dating site??? If you are doing it perhaps you are ruining yourself.
Please mind the Gossip is less personal and less sensitive information than your medical history.
Today, massive Facebook users are affected because they used it for every purpose. Of course Facebook is the culprit, but if you have shared all your information over a Gossip network, so you are also equally responsible.
Before you spend time on how to download and delete Facebook data, wait a moment.
So you won't get caught in a trouble, move your ass and make changes in your most secure information both personal and professional.

SEO or Audience???

Study competitor keywords to win the SEO is most popular myth on the Internet. It could be one technique to win over your competitor but not the whole strategy. SEO market is full of keyword, many of the companies miserably fail in audience research. The noise around Keyword research is so loud that business managers missed out on the main thing; i.e. what users want?
I am not against keyword research, many companies win the SERPs game by focusing on SEO keywords but fail in generating sales.They feel appearing on top of searches will win the customers. However, true SEO is, study of audience needs and then working those pain points.
To know what your audience wants, reach them and ask. Understand your customers pain points. Then address those issues, make the SEO points your title keywords, meta description, keywords and tags
Time have changed now. Today audience get everything without asking. Google search is still good business in inventory but I doubt if this is equally good as 1…
