Tutorial – Removing Facebook Apps

“It seemed like a good idea at the time!”  That’s what most people thought when they downloaded “The Most Popular Words Used In Your Profile” app this past week.  Over the past several days, it was revealed that the app really wasn’t that keen on keeping your information secure, so The Computer Guy to the rescue and has made a video on what to do in removing the apps that you no longer use or that may be harmful to your ONLINE health.

Enjoy and be careful, even when you set apps to “Only Me” they can still collect your private information!

Pat’s On Periscope – Show 20

Well, I finally had to block a few people who were always being rude and inconsiderate to my “scopes.”  When I do these, I like to give 100% to the video because I know I am going to repurpose it into several areas.  I guess I wasn’t clear enough when I was doing the video and some guy kept pointing out I only had 4 viewers.

Nevertheless, I got through the video and discussed a serious matter, the terrorist attack in France and the scams and hoaxes that have already hit email boxes around the world.  Please, check out all solicitations for money in regards  to the attacks.  There are people out there just waiting to scam you out of cash.

I also talked a bit about Black Friday and I do have The Computer Guy gift cards for sale.  They are $10 each and you can buy as many as you need for that loved one who may need some extra help this holiday season!

Pat’s On Periscope – Show 19

This week I review the recent Midwest Social Media Summit held in Mason City on 10/24/15.  I gave it a solid 9 out of 10 for their first time out of the gate!!  A lot was presented and people raved about the day as a whole!  Sadly, I think my volume was a bit weak on this video, so you’ll have to turn it up a bit!

Pat’s On Periscope – Show 17

Monday was  a VERY windy day and with that comes the chance to download Weather Apps to your phone.  My favorite is the KIMT-TV Weather App, but many sites have their own.  One key thing to keep in mind is do NOT link your social media account to the app.  There is no reason for that and if they want your personal information, maybe it’s time to look at another app.

We also talk about a topic which was covered on The Dr. Phil Show a few weeks ago and this was keeping kids safe and NOT to talk to strangers on line.  Parents should have access to their child’s Social Media accounts and log into them now and then.  Search the chat areas of the phone and to the other places where photos may have come into the phone.

One guy helped parents wake kids up over this whole issue in this video — You may be shocked!
