Employees take over official corporate Twitter feed

HMV Twitter feed

According to an article in the Guardian yesterday, disgruntled HMV employees briefly took over the company's official Twitter account on Thursday to express their extreme dissatisfaction at being sacked by the ailing retailer.
 
More details:
 
On Thursday afternoon one or more angry employees took to the microblogging site to vent their anger and "tweet live from HR". They managed to post seven subversive messages [see image above] before the company regained control of the account and deleted the posts.

This just shows the power of social media in the workplace and how many people listen to that voice. A real shame that HMV fell. A great loss from our high street and a real global brand. If they had focussed on an online delivery service or had adapted to downloads, no doubt they would still be here. I for one would rather have had my music from HMV rather than a leviathan digital company (mentioning no names).

Banking Security said...

Security of what women love the most is what a individual requires to please her. Nowadays, we hear news about information getting stolen online. A bank is a place stuffed with valuables, and it is kind of tempting, but if you do not prefer staying behind bars, please do not even think of doing it.
Banks to cope up in the competitive market have taken everything online. With the increase in customers opting for banking services, there rose a problem of customer satisfaction. The long wait in lines to deposit / withdraw money or even transferring money was quite annoying, so banks found means and methods to satisfy customers, that was when internet banking came into the picture. With the convenience of customer, there also rose a probability of being robbed online. Still people get conned online, as they give their card numbers or bank account details in the name of free services or winning a lottery and what not.
Earlier people used to get robbed from their homes, so they preferred depositing them in the banks knowing that they were safe. Banking Security does not only include only online banking, but there are other security features like Security Alarm Systems, CCTV’s, Safe Deposits so on so forth. Now banks use these systems to make robbing difficult and creates a demotivating mindset. Using these security systems makes a burglar think several times before considering to make a move. Government authorities even recommend its use as it has helped them track down several criminals.
To curb the increasing cyber crimes banking industries had to spend massive amounts on creating applications, softwares and auto-responder services which notifies a customer for any transaction, he or she has made. With new advanced technologies banks have incorporated these systems, this not only keeps their customers happy but also helps the company gaining a reputation of being secure and reliable.
One can always sleep sound knowing that what he or she possesses in safe.

ReleaseTracker is a simple and efficient way to publish chronological lists of releases, grouped into topics that are populated by one or more people. It is like a cross between Wikipedia and Twitter, except for film, music, games releases.

It provides a self-maintainable topic administration and moderation system, which allows the site to grow to unlimited scope and gives users complete control over their topics.
There are 2 types of topics: open and closed. Open topics can be updated by anyone. Closed topics can only be updated by that topic's moderators.

A user who starts a topic becomes the topic admin. The topic admin has the ability to elect up to 10 topic mods. In turn, those mods also have the ability to elect other mods (up to the topic limit of 10).
Mods are responsible for maintaining their topics by checking releases submitted by regular users and certifying them. It is also their duty to moderate any comments made to releases in their topics, for example, deleting spam comments and ensuring that all comments are suitable and relevant.

Despite the name, users are not restricted to publishing official "releases", you can track anything that you want. For example, your music collection, or film
