Discussion #4

According to our textbook, social media and social networking on business is becoming increasingly popular than ever before. Eventually these sites will have a tremendous impact on business in the future because people can do a lot of networking on the web and companies will have a better chance at finding out what a person is really like by viewing their web pages. I believe that this is not a “fad” because more people and businesses are moving to more technologies in the future that will save them time and money.

According to Google, “Click fraud is invalid clicks that are generated with malicious or fraudulent intent. Click fraud are clicks that are done to drive up advertiser cost or publisher revenue. When click fraud is suspected, the staff at Google investigates the invalid clicks. When a situation involving fraudulent clicks is confirmed, Google typically hands out a lifetime ban from the AdSense program.” Yes, I do believe the steps that Google takes is reasonable, ethical, and practical because no one should get compensated for fraudulent activities.

Whole-House Surge Protection

It's important to protect all your electronic devices, not just computers, from surges. Printers, televisions, appliances and computer peripherals all require protection. However, it can be inconvenient to use individual surge protectors on all devices that need protection. One solution is to install a whole-house surge protector as shown in this photo. The device is installed by an electrician and is attached to your circuit breaker panel. Whole-house surge protectors function like other surge protection devices, but they protect all electrical devices in the house at once. The typical cost of $200 to $300 (installed) is genergally less than buying individual surge protectors for every electrical device in your home.
