Last time, I highlighted Twitter as a social media platform ideal for promoting your business. For the next few posts, I’ll focus on Facebook.

 

Facebook

Today, there are approximately 1 billion users according to Facebook – and you’re probably included in that count. It is the preferred social networking site for business-to-consumer marketers, but is not currently in the top three for business-to-business marketers. It’s essentially a closed community—one that requires a login. It’s designed for sharing short paragraphs and visual multimedia, such as photos, videos and infographics. It’s the most visually-friendly of all—with the best support for visual content compared to Twitter and LinkedIn.

In our experience, we’ve found that the best...

WHITE PAPER: Fraud Alert: Phishing — The Latest Tactics and Potential Business Impacts 2012

 
As one of the top cyber crime ploys impacting both consumers and businesses, phishing has remained a consistently potent threat over the past several years. In fact, the cumulative number of phishing attacks recorded in 2011 represented a 37 percent increase over 2010.[2] The impact on businesses can be quite severe. RSA estimated in its October 2011 Fraud Report that the worldwide...

I believe this is not only concerning my EMM part, but overall Symantec partners & customers, using the Symantec support.

From Monday 29th October, the Symantec Support ticketing were switching to another system.

Force all existing tickets to switch a new number... Well, I assume a better transition would be to avoid such change on existing. But I am sure this kind of system migration; get a lot of difficulties to manage. So, OK for that, we can understand.

But when to get back history access: No way, all existing tickets vanished, all the same migrated a new number... 

On the start, we can believe it will be only for new case or initial creation. I create one, populate all fields, and try to get the "ticket number" and the "message" I was populating. 

BUT NO WAY, no access any more, no email confirmation, and no History ACCESS ... 

That is now exactly...

By Rob Greer, Vice President & General Manager, Enterprise Mobility, Symantec

Over the last few years, we’ve seen an increase in the number of new mobile operating systems. The latest example is Microsoft’s announcement today of the availability of Windows Phone 8.

There are a lot of social networking platforms on the web today—Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, YouTube, Myspace, Meetup, myLife and the new Pheed to name only a few. Unless you have unlimited headcount, chances are, you can’t possibly create and maintain a social presence for your company on all of them, let alone more than one or two. That’s why, in this week’s addition to the partner social media series, I start addressing some of the most popular platforms—Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.

I’ll say that with the caveat that overall Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, blogs and YouTube were the top five social media tools used by marketers, with Facebook leading the pack. But if you break it down by business-to-business marketers—like you and myself—marketers are more focused on LinkedIn, Twitter and blogging. That’s, at least, according to...

The Best Blacklist Protection—Symantec Website Security

Search engines, the heart of the internet, reserve the right to blacklist websites. Blacklisting can mean that a company does not show in search results or that a warning is given if a user clicks on a blacklisted website. Websites become blacklisted for a variety of reasons. The two most frequent reasons are:
  • Failing to meet search engine usage guidelines (i.e. overly aggressive search engine optimizations [SEO] that violate a search engine's terms of service)
  • Websites being shown as a source of malware

The malware could be intentional (i.e. phishing, spoofed websites) or unintentional (i.e. website has been hacked or otherwise infected by a third party). A surefire way to get blacklisted is to harbor a website being infected with malware.
