social media

Have you noticed the ads on different sites? These are the ads of things that you had searched or viewed before, on the internet. Social media users see these types of ads daily, on Facebook, Instagram, twitter etc. These are the result of the mining of your personal data by advertisement companies.

The ‘terms and services’ that you never read ask you to have an agreement with the policy. And when you press ‘agree’, you allow them to use your information. Not just these agreements, on social media, different fake accounts, ads and other attractive options are also there, ready to feed on you.

Social media is compromising your privacy by fetching your data using these latest methods.

On Facebook, you might have come across quizzes like, Which Bollywood celeb you look like? What is the meaning of your name? People take these quizzes and it surely seems a fun way to pass time, but is it safe? Clearly no.  These quizzes use your personal data to sell it to other companies that can get profit from this.

As most of the companies are working on ‘face recognition’ and data like this may be helpful for them, but surely not for you.

Photos that you upload on social media

It’s is not considered safe to put photos on social media right when they are clicked. These types of incidents have caused many crimes. Safe is to post it after some time. People like to share all their life experiences on social media but it also makes them easy prey for cybercriminals.

The team behind The Lion King described the making of the film as a “virtual production process.”

Director Jon Favreau told journalists that they aimed to apply the technology used. They wanted live-action filmmaking to the virtual recreation of Serengeti they would develop.

Recreating Serengeti

A dedicated team went to Kenya in order to conduct extensive research on the features of the landscapes and wildlife there. A huge number of photographs were taken which would later help the graphics team. The effects team to reimagine that place accurately for a worldwide audience.
