    Question 1

    Please share your experience with online social networks. What role do you think social networks are playing in current everyday life? What societal changes are resulting from social networks? What are the pros and cons of online social networks compared to the traditional means of social interaction? Social media aggregators purport to score your overall presence on the Internet and determine just how influential you are. A good example of this is Klout.com. Focus on social media aggregation and what this means for the future. What's the long-term value of these tools? Who's interested, and why? And why might you at some point find it useful to participate in these exercises?

    Question 2

    Now with Microsoft having made its entry into cloud computing, it is safe to say that the cloud will be sticking around for a while. Due to the nature of the cloud and being relatively new still, it has inherent security risk. If you were a CIO/CTO, would you recommend that your organization venture into cloud computing? Why or why not? What factors you would consider to make the decision? And how you would mitigate potential security issues?

    Question 3

    Customer security is a serious concern for e-commerce. An e-commerce system needs to ensure that customers are indeed who they say they are, their customer information is accurate and secure, and only authorized individuals have access to the customer information. Mobile commerce is becoming very popular. Focus your discussion on mobile payment systems and associated security issues

    Question 4

    Edward Snowden has created huge controversies worldwide. People are not sure what to think about him. Is he a hero? A fighter for freedom of speech? Or a delusional traitor that exposed national security? Has he done the right thing to all people or a disservice to his country and fellow countrymen? What is your opinion about this and the broader issue of surveillance of the phone calls of the U.S. citizens? What does our right to privacy mean in this age of networked systems and the massive storage of the data flowing through the networked systems?

    My experience with online social networks has been limited to sites such as Facebook, Myspace, and a few other services that I infrequently utilize. Social networks play a role in many people's lives, but the level of influence is different for each person. Some people use Linkedin to network with fellow professionals while others never use this service. Some people are always on Facebook while others can check their page once every 3 months or never get on. In my personal life, I've phased out much of my Facebook presence because it was not authentic whereas I would be contacted by individuals from decades ago who only knew me in school, and because I've lived overseas for many years, don't have any connection to me at all. It was not real for me anymore, and I've chosen to increasingly withdraw from using these types of social networking sites.
