Scientists have long speculated that Recurring Slope Lineae -- or dark patches -- on Mars were made up of briny water but the new findings prove that those patches are caused by liquid water, which it has established by finding hydrated salts.

WhatsApp temporarily suspends sharing European user data with parent company Facebook

The Independent - Tech

WhatsApp has temporarily suspended giving parent company Facebook information about users in Europe for ad targeting, responding to concerns there over privacy, a source close to the matter said Tuesday. Conversations with officials in Europe over the past few months resulted in the social network deciding to only tapping into WhatsApp user data there for purposes such as fighting spam, according to the source. The break was described as an effort to give regulators time to share privacy concerns and for Facebook to consider ways to address them. German data protection authorities in September cited privacy concerns when they blocked Facebook from collecting subscriber data from WhatsApp there. "It has to be (the users') decision whether they want to connect their account with Facebook," Hamburg's Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information Johannes Caspar said at the time.


Facebook scammers are copying users' names, profile pictures and statuses to steal their money

The Independent - Tech

Facebook scammers are making carbon copies of legitimate profiles in order to trick users into revealing financial and personal details, in a tactic known as'cloning'. By creating a new account using the exact same name, personal information and profile and cover photos included on your own profile – even going as far as copying your statuses – they can do a convincing job of imitating you online. The scheme allows them to confidently approach your friends and family members, who could unknowingly accept a friend request from the clone account and eventually share private information with it, depending on how convincing their messages appear.

Pope Francis issues social media warning: 'Don't be led astray by this false image of reality!'

The Independent - Tech

Pope Francis has warned young people about their use of social media, urging them to create their own history and reject "false" depictions of reality. The Argentinian pontiff was recording a video message for World Youth Day, which takes places on 9 April. "Many people say that young people are distracted and superficial," he said. Still, we should acknowledge our need to reflect on our lives and direct them towards the future. "In the social media, we see faces of young people appearing in any number of pictures recounting more or less real events, but we don't know how much of all this is really'history', an experience that can be communicated and endowed with purpose and meaning."
