A LETTER TO AMAKA AND CHARLES OF HOTFM ABUJA, A MUST READ IF YOU ARE ON ANY SOCIAL MEDIA
From: Nelson Jboy
To: Rendezvous Crew
Gud morning Charles And Amaka prior to ur post on ur blog yesterday am using dis opportunity to adress the death treat by the young man to the celebrity (actress)While we’re busy creating new communities around ourselves online, sharing different aspects of our lives and building a visible record of ourselves for anyone to see, we don’t often stop to think about the implications of this for the concept of identity. Let me start by saying that this is not an easy concept.
It is something that continues, and will continue to, split opinion, with some seeing social media as the saviour and some seeing it as the devil. Though there may be no easy solution for the implications of social media and identity, it isn’t something we can afford to ignore, as it is shaping our everyday lives.
Threat of this nature attract punishment by cyber laws and if not properly checkmate will be transfered to real action has been observed in our case file.. I will quickly want u to think outside the box, why is kidnappin so popular in our country today? it has a reason of people not been able to handle information on social networks. today people display their bb pin on S.N, current location checkin, DP status potrayin their current status e.g "just receive my febuary allawance in cash".
Now the malicious guys that give out or sell out dis info are on our dp list, & in most case make use of social engineering to gather intels from us.. Note "Social engineering is the act of manipulating human minds, human by nature trust fellow human, still human is d weakest link to sort info from" so proper mismanagement of info on social network has lead to impersonation, kidnapin, terrorism, identity theft etc which we are facing today.
Wuld reli like to have a talk show on my free time to enlighten u/ nigerian on the weapon of physcial & virtual world and hw. Best we can properly use cyber intelligence to combat terrorism & gather intels on our target.
This is not just inspiring but timely and the rendezvous crew align itself to the write-up above we wish to ask all who read this to be extra careful with whatever info they give out no matter how small, and hope you are all safe.
Hey do we invite him live On-air? answers on the comment box can determine that..so go ahead
