1 IST 331 Homework 1 Michael Kerr Junior, College of IST Penn State University [email protected] 28 th January, 2007 A) Two good and two bad points Good - You are able to manipulate your preferences to show certain actions more than others on your news feed. For example, you are able to decide if you would like to ‘show more’ or ‘show less’ about certain topics such as events, groups, relationships, photos, wall posts, etc. - The news feed is a quick and efficient way to find out what’s going on with your friends in your social network. As soon as you log on you get a quick one page run down telling you the information that you have selected in your preferences. Bad - The news feed shows up on everyone’s home page for everyone to see. Therefore, whenever you do something or change something to your profile, the ‘whole world’ (your friends) knows about it. This can be an invasion of privacy and may be against what people were anticipating Facebook to be like. For example, if my girlfriend and I broke up, everyone that I’m friends with would immediately read about this when they sign on. - Although you are able to manipulate your preferences, it is not very obvious where you have to go to do so. There is a small link that says ‘preferences’ in the upper right hand corner of the screen. However, with all the other links and news feeds it is difficult to notice. Therefore, there is a lot of news that you get daily that you do not care about. For example, unless you adjust your preferences, you will likely have multiple news

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
