Smart Attorney General in Florida!!! Nailed a vendor on cyberfraud charges and translated it into $1 million for Cybersafety Education programs!
In addition to the new injunctive standard, the agreement also provides for a payment of $1 million to the Attorney General to be used to fund additional investigations into CyberFraud and to further CyberSafety education. The Attorney General encouraged any Florida consumers who believe they have been victimized by unauthorized charges for mobile content to contact their wireless cell phone carrier for refunds.

[Market Research Report] <br><br>“Young people are the inherent trend leaders when it comes to new technology and usage patterns, and are the ones pushing forward the speed of change in communication and information technology. This Report reveals that it may be imperative for some brands to re-think strategies--even among progressive companies--if they are to reach youth culture effectively.
For example, miniDV cameras are not only among the new tools of self-expression, but the very act of creating personal videos with friends and creating events and key themes to shoot have become key aspects of entertainment in and of itself. To this generation, playing music via your cell phone, and movies and TV shows via your iPod are a given. Emailing is considered too old-school by many, whereas texting is outpacing cell phone calls. These things also go hand-in-hand with changes in online shopping patterns, top website preferences, communication and blogging patterns, and new habits for using social networks—not to mention the tremendous changes in preferred social networks and profile page usage patterns in general. These things are changing the paradigm of how the businesses of entertainment, communication, retail, marketing, advertising, and branding have been done in the past.
Unfortunately, as more companies pour big money into expanding their new media marketing components, as many people have discovered, the Field of Dreams theory (“if we build it, they will come”) certainly doesn’t apply when it comes to reaching savvy youth today. Popping up a site (or social network for that matter) no matter how cool it is means nothing if you can’t reach the market it’s intended for. This Report, therefore, also includes a great deal about how young people find out about new websites, communicate with others, and other forms of grassroots networking.
Overall, the Digital Lifestyle Youth Culture Profile Report 2008 not only reveals traits by target demographics, but also the growing generation gap occurring even within this generation.

If a young person wants to experiment with running a business, they're not just engaging in thought experiments and case studies; they're actually working with real people and real money," says Joey Seiler, editor of VirtualWorldNews.com, an industry news source that's part of Virtual Worlds Management, a company that provides trade events, media, research and online services.
According to Virtual Worlds Management, more than 100 youth-oriented virtual worlds are either now live or in development, including offerings from MTV and Disney (DIS - Cramer's Take - Stockpickr). Research firm eMarketer estimates that 24% of the 34.3 million users ages three to 18 used virtual worlds at least monthly in 2007 -- and that will jump to 53% by 2011.

The threat landscape once dominated by the worms and viruses unleashed by irresponsible hackers is now ruled by a new breed of cybercriminals. Cybercrime is motivated by fraud, typified by the bogus emails sent by "phishers" that aim to steal personal information. The tools driving their attacks and fueling the blackmarket are crimeware - bots, Trojan horses, and spyware.

According to a new report from OTX and The Intelligence Group, teens actually prefer real world interaction to the virtual worlds offered online.
the study found that teens spend an average of 11 hours each week in an online environment. Their favorite online activities? Instant messaging, social networking, listening to music and shopping.
The study finds that 58% of teens have purchased a product online but that more than three-quarters of teens prefer to shop in-store. The study also found that 54% of teens use instant messaging but that 46% prefer talking to friends over the phone.
Rather than preferring the online world in total, teens are adapting to the online world but still prefer real world pursuits and in-person activities.

Social Networks may be on the increase in populations, but marketers still struggle with how to get users to respond to advertising.
Even Google has failed to extend its golden touch to social-networking sites. In 2006 Google paid MySpace $900 million to place ads on its pages. The search giant also operates its own social network, Orkut, which has been growing, especially outside the US.
But in a February call with financial analysts, Google cofounder Sergey Brin conceded that the investments “didn’t pan out as well as we had hoped…. I don’t think we have the killer best way to advertise and monetize the social networks yet.”
“People clearly, especially on the social networks, [are] not particularly interested in clicking on the ads,” says Mr. Brooks, who as editor of socialnetworkingwatch.com has followed the online industry for a decade. “Advertising needs to evolve, and social networks are forcing this change. People are really tired of being assaulted [by ads], but they still love to buy.”
As users share personal information within their networks, companies have an opportunity to capture and employ this data for targeted marketing. Social networks are building huge databases about where users go and the people they connect with, says Fred Stutzman, a doctoral candidate at the University of North Carolina who studies social networks.

At the same time, most internet users express discomfort over a key step in online shopping -- sending personal or credit card information over the internet. Internet users like the convenience but worry about the security of their online information.
