Internet Privacy

There is no question that privacy is a major issue on the internet. You are probably hearing of more and more situations with someone’s email or social media account being hacked. Whether the person who was hacked is someone close to you or celebrities, which you probably hear more often. So, how can you take steps into making sure your social media accounts are hack-proof?

According to the article Three Essential Steps to Make Yourself more Hack-Proof, list a few very important steps to take when trying to make sure you are hack-proof.

The first step being to not reuse passwords. It may seem easy to just have one password for all the sites you use because you can remember the password. Just think what happens if that password somehow gets out? All of your accounts are gone, along with anything you have stored within them that’s private. Someone now has access to it all.

The next step is to set up two-factor authentication. This means that when someone attempts to log into your account from a new location, different devices, they have to enter a code that is sent to the device you set as your trusted advice. I believe this is a very helpful tip to mention.

The last step is to use a password manager. This will help you create and manage passwords.


All the privacy issues may affect my future career. I may be over, or at least help, with managing a website or social media accounts for a company. It will be apart of my job to make sure everything posted is meant for the public eye and none of the accounts I’m over get hacked. Using the three steps mentioned above, will certainly help with making sure anything I may be in charge of is hack-proof.

The Best Web Design Training Course

Best Web Design Training Course

In my opinion, I believe W3Schools is the best option when looking for a web design training course. It’s great for anybody who doesn’t know much about HTML, CSS, and Javascript. W3Schools gives easy step-by-step tutorials on how to use and apply all the right tools and techniques in a way that suits your website.

W3Schools has helped me out tremendously, with it’s easy and organized layout, finding exactly what you’re looking for is no problem.

CA260 Online?

I believe if this class were taught entirely online there would be pros but cons too. Personally, I think I would enjoy it more and get more out of it if it were taught online, but I know there would be downfalls as well. I think it would be great to be able to work as fast or as slow as you want. Also, doing your work at home may be easier because you’re able to sit down with less people around you, meaning less distractions, and you can solely concentrate on the assignment.

The downfall I see of it being taught completely online is not having a professor there to answer a question you may have. Whether that question be something as simple as making sure you understand the instructions on an assignment or something more important. Any questions you have you would have to email your instructor and not knowing when you would get a response is stressful especially if a deadline for an assignment is coming up.

Class & Lab Reflection

The past week we are learning how to use CSS, cascading style sheets. I’ve learned how CSS can change the appearance and layout of a document. Like previous HTML activities, it is difficult, but the more I read and the more I practice the easier it is becoming.

CMS Recommendation

CMS Recommendation

I would recommend WordPress. I can only feel comfortable recommending this CMS because I have used it. WordPress makes writing, publishing, and categorizing post easy and simple. It’s easy to edit content, insert images, and embed codes. WordPress is organized, so finding what you’re looking for is easy.

In Tiwari’s article, he talks about three CMS’s, Drupal, Joomla, and WordPress. He gives a description about each and talks about a few of their features. Reading this article and using WordPress for my blog, has made it clear, in my opinion, that WordPress is the easiest to use.

In the video, Content Management System Overview Tutorial, he talks about WordPress. It is shown how easily it is to post content, edit content in visual or HTML mode, add pages, and embed videos into post.

Curious about more features of WordPress? WordPress Features, list other features you may be curious about. On this webpage, it goes into more detail about features on WordPress such as, publishing tools, user management, plugins, installation and upgrades, and more.

Overall, I find WordPress to be an excellent CMS to use. It makes creating websites easy even if you don’t know much about web design. I highly recommend WordPress.


Class & Lab Reflection

Recently, we have discussed in class video-sharing websites. After getting into groups, picking two different video-sharing websites to compare features and layouts, we decided which website was the best. Youtube came out on top as being the best and most popular video-sharing website.
