Putin on trial? Fake video goes viral in Russia:

A startlingly realistic fake “breaking news” video purporting to show the arrest and trial of Vladimir Putin has gone viral, garnering well over 3 million hits since it was posted on YouTube on Monday.

Styled as a breaking news item, it also charges Putin under Article 205 of Russia’s criminal code “as a person who assisted in an act of terrorism to intimidate the population.”

Any Russian will immediately recognize this as a reference to a still unsolved 1999 wave of apartment bombings that killed almost 300 people in their sleep, transfixed Russians with fear, and led to the overwhelming victory of the tough-talking former KGB agent, Putin, in parliamentary and subsequent presidential polls.

Very creative and powerful use of social media for political protest, here!

Twitter helped shape riot before YouTube showed the world

Social media has shaped and fuelled the course of events for the Stanley Cup riot and Occupy Vancouver. The real story behind the Stanley Cup riot is not the violent destruction and looting of property, but the use of social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Tumblr and so forth, to observe, document, and react to vandalism and theft.

http://www.vancourier.com/technology/Twitter+helped+shape+riot+before+YouTube+showed+world/5869677/story.html

Some form of hooliganism was to an extent expected, but the surprise was how citizens used social media to hunt down offenders and organize clean up crews. Social media clearly facilitated the start of the Occupy Wall Street movement and in turn, Occupy Vancouver, but more important is how it is being used for social change as a real-time medium to observe, document, organize and negotiate.

    Indeed the potential of social media to serve as a vehicle for positive change is immense. We have to harness it properly. More awareness on its potential is a first step.

The Global Times newspaper on Friday described the state of Internet security in China as “very dangerous,” saying that public data leaks had “struck Chinese society’s alarm bells.”

YouTube launching new version for schools.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-16141986
http://www.siliconrepublic.com/new-media/item/24962-youtube-targets-education/

Would be cool if it’s also available for people who just want to learn outside school setting. Must check that out.

But it means students can’t learn from viral clips? That’s not educational!?!?!

Discussions Discussion Logic and Statistics Explained
luis fok, Nov. 17, 2011

Social networks such as facebook and YouTube as well as great resources including Wikipedia and Wolfram-Alpha are here to stay so that educators must use them in the teaching process.

Many academics are posting great educational videos and materials online. The only problem is to sort the good ones from the rest and present them in an organized manner.

This effort is being done by: http://Utubersity.com which presents the best educational videos available on YouTube (including Statistics) in an organized, easy to find way to watch and learn.

They are classified and tagged in a way that enables people to find these materials more easily and efficiently and not waste time browsing through pages of irrelevant search results.

The website also enhances the experience using other means such as recommending related videos, Wikipedia content and so on.

There’s also a Spanish version called http://utubersidad.com

Einztein TIP: INSERTING AUDIO, VIDEO AND PHOTOS INPOST

Remember that you can insert audio, video and photos in a post. Where it says “Enter Link”, you can insert a link from sites like YouTube, Flickr and Vimeo (along with the other content providers on this list: http://embed.ly/providers) and the content found at that link will be automatically embedded in your post.

Working on a group project? You might want to create a Flickr account, for instance, and use it to store your photos. This will enable you to share photos in that Flickr account via Einztein.

Just to give you an idea, I selected a photo on Flickr and embedded it in this post by inserting the Flickr link below.

[for more tips, go to the Einztein FAQ at http://bit.ly/v4QOQV]

So, how has Burberry, a fashion brand best known for trench coats, become the darlings of social media?

1. by tweeting its spring/summer 2012 collection before it was even seen on the runway
2. by having “click to call” and “click to chat” facilities so fans contact the Burberry team
3. by hiring British photographer Mike Kus,- who has 123,699 followers - to share his images from the show on Instagram
4. by live streaming their runway shows and red carpet interviews on YouTube
5. by live streaming shows also through Chinese social networks Sina and Youku
6. by creating an album, “Burberry Acoustic,” featuring music from the show that was ready to be instantly downloaded
7. by launching a photo-sharing website called “art of the trench,” which invites consumers to post pictures of themselves in their iconic Burberry trench coats
8. And, finally, by releasing a single which soundtracks their advertising campaign for the new Burberry perfume, Body, which will appear on television before Christmas 2011.

Long story short, today Burberry has 8.6 million Facebook fans and 550 thousand Twitter followers.

Anyone still think the fashion industry doesn’t “get it”?

    Burberry rocks. I don't really care about their clothes, but following them online has been fun this past month.

More than 700 protesters demonstrating against corporate greed, global warming and social inequality, among other grievances, were arrested Saturday after they swarmed the Brooklyn Bridge. The group Occupy Wall Street has been camped out in a plaza in Manhattan’s Financial District for nearly two weeks staging various protests.

Misinformation has added to the confusion. For instance, a rumor sprang up on Twitter that the New York Police Department wanted to use tear gas on protesters — a crowd-control tactic the department doesn’t use.

One video surfaced on social media website Youtube of a group of girls shot with pepper spray by NYPD Deputy Inspector Anthony Bologna. The woman claimed they were abused and demanded the officer resign, and the video has been the subject of several news articles and commentary.
