Abstract:

Skilled researchers, journalists, and subject experts have come together in this follow-up to Web of Deception to reveal important lessons for staying safe and retaining privacy online. In the wake of the social media popularity boom-epitomized by MySpace, eBay, and Craigslist and accelerating with Facebook and Twitter-the success of internet con artists and thieves has been quick to follow. Manipulators have been provided with the tools and targets to perpetrate hoaxes and con games on an ever larger scale. An invaluable guide to safe internet usage, this resource explains the importance of guarding privacy and identity online, spotting misinformation, avoiding charity scams, and evaluating websites.
