Security for Journalists, Part Two: Threat Modeling - Learning - Source: An OpenNews project
"This work begins with thinking through what it is you have to protect, and from whom. This is called threat modeling and is the first step in any security analysis. The goal is to construct a picture—in some ways no more than an educated guess—of what you’re up against. There are many ways to do this, but this post is structured around four basic questions.

What do you want to keep private?
Who wants to know?
What can they do to find out?
What happens if they succeed?

Q/
Posted by Ståle Grut July 10, 2014

The social network Snapchat jumped in 2013 and almost tripled the number of Norwegian users to 1.1 million. Having hit a nerve with news of Instagram, the journalists in P3nyheter hungry to try a new media - the choice fell on Snapchat.

Snapchats story feature makes it possible to send updates to a wider audience, not just individuals you choose. This opens great opportunities on the platform, for example news organizations.

- We were inspired byNowThisNews to play us on Instagram, says Ingvild Sættem Belt Break in P3nyheter. This also meant that we tested Snapchat in the spring, but did not have time to update both continuous. Recently we made ​​a second attempt and put some more time.

It has paid off. Almost 1500 users now follow @ NRKP3nyheter on Snapchat, and those who watch news updates are mostly with the entire contents.

A Snapchat update from P3nyheter could for example look like this:
[video]

- It's been much better than we thought, says Tracked Brekke. It is a little difficult to measure, because everything must be counted manually in Snapchat app, but it runs constantly in with followers.

Tracked Brekke is pleasantly surprised, but says it is also difficult to find time to make Snapchat updates. Any updates on Instagram and Snapchat is surplus production as well as radio broadcasts, which are P3nyheters main product.

News tips from the public

But the public does not receive only the news via social media, they also take part yourself.

- We get a lot of snap back, says Tracked Brekke. Under the new filters to the Snapchat came, we get many updates on the weather, especially during the heat wave now.

She cites a news tip they received via Snapchat under Forest Fire Seals last week. When snapped namely a follower a picture of a fire helicopter in action after P3nyheter had reported the incident to the radio. This let them to their ongoing "story" on Snapchat.

Therefore, they have requested reads images from people who are present at various events, such as floods in Lillehammer or witness to other phenomena they report in their broadcasts.

To create P3 news snaps

Tracked Brekke tells about the process behind one of the updates.

- We create images in Photoshop and video in Premiere, how we use templates suitable for Iphone 4, where we design graphics, video, images and text to each item. When an update is ready it will be uploaded to Dropbox, and published via Snaproll app on your phone, which provides the ability to add items to Snapchat stories. attach it in Dropbox and use Snaproll and put it in stories.

Tracked Brekke says it will be easy when you've done it a few times and recalls that it should not be so much text and the need to adjust how long each update should be visible.

- Do not underestimate how much time people need to read, said belt Brekke.

Follow the rules and no one will get hurt: performing boundary work to avoid negative interactions when using social network sites - Information, Communication & Society
Social network sites (SNSs), like Facebook, have widespread appeal among emerging adults, yet they also present the potential for negative interactions. Interviews (N = 227) with emerging adults from Wave 3 of the National Study of Youth and Religion reveal the boundary work emerging adults undergo to limit negative SNS interactions and how they navigate the dynamic and permeable boundaries between positive and negative interactions. This work includes following three informal rules meant to limit negative interactions: do not share excessive personal information, do not spy on or stalk other users, and make online friendships with people one already knows. Several important implications result from this boundary work: crossing boundaries can have negative offline and online consequences, following the informal rules helps stabilize SNS communities by limiting the potential and severity of harmful interactions, and SNS may be popular among emerging adults but some disenchantment is not uncommon and some emerging adults may not use SNS as a result.

Paywalls work, but only sometimes. Higher subscription pricing works, but only sometimes. With so many business plans sort-of-working, continuing to madly experiment seems preferable to doubling down on any one idea."
