What is Geotagging in Simple Terms?

What is Geotagging in Simple Terms?

Geotagging is the act of adding your location information to photos, videos, text messages, and websites. Global Positioning Devices (GPSs) in cameras and mobile devices can show your (or your photo’s) exact latitude, longitude, and time stamp. You can also manually share your location by attaching photos to a map (for example, with Flickr or Picasa) or by “checking in” (for example, with Foursquare and Facebook).

How can it harm?

Geotagging can reveal personal information such as your office and home address, place of vacation, daily commute, etc. If you share your location, you may be broadcasting information that could be used against you.

What can I do?

Find out if your devices have geotagging capability (for example, built-in GPS device) and consider disabling the geotagging function on your devices. Don’t know how? Learn about various cell phone settings online or check your device’s user manual. geo tagging

Consider opting not to manually share your location in photos or on social media (for example, “checking in”). Checks to ensure your social media (for example, Facebook) are set to “private.”

Consider removing metadata from photos before posting to social media or other websites. Consider double checking photos you have already posted for metadata. Check online for a variety of metadata removal software.

Example, if you are living in California and you’re vacationing in the Caribbean loving life, how pictures have been posted. Your family members are posting great photos and videos online of your family playing in the sand. Not only will their online friends know you’re all away from home, but anyone else with access to YouTube or their Facebook page can see where you are, as well. Because the feature includes the date and time, there’s no question as to your current location. This is a great invitation for intruders to visit your home. This doesn’t mean that bad things will happen because of your geo tag, but better safe than sorry.

Building Office Success One Compliment at a Time

Building Office Success One Compliment at a Time

 

It’s a natural feel good to receive a compliment. Yeah! Does your high profile manager recognize you for doing a quality job? Don’t you always accomplish the mission and stay ahead of the game? You sure do. What would happen if you gave yourself an internal compliment? In your mind, you give yourself an award for a job well done. You deserve it, so don’t hold back.

What if you gave your boss a compliment? How about an award or a plaque from the team to your boss? Would you be reluctant out of fear of what your team would think if you thought this was a great idea? Perhaps your team could create a bond as tight as a sailor’s rope knot. compliments

Can you give your co-workers a sincere compliment about their work habits and feel good about it? I know you aren’t the person in charge, but could you change the atmosphere in your environment by complimenting someone else’s success?

Can you grow from the middle of your organization when you become a source of energy to others? Do winners gain strength by disciplining themselves to turn inward for approval for a job well done? Your ability to see and comment on the contributions, dedication, and the many characteristics that make the people around you successful creates a game changer.

Do you want to continue to win by making everyone smile? Maybe your environment needs new leadership that has yet to be discovered? Could making you smile happen because you are self-contained when it comes to recognizing your achievements? You have your own sense of self-worth and you set high standards by challenging yourself.

Start today with one compliment carefully placed with sincerity. Will your office team look to you for approval? Will a poor office performer want a compliment as well? Could this be a move to increase productivity and maintain retention? What a great place to work! I smile because you can make this work!
