Sui Generis–a New York law blog: Defining “Social Media” For Probationers

By Nicole Black

It seems lawyers can’t escape social media, no matter how hard we try. As I’ve written about previously, social media is now being used as evidence in cases, lawyers are using it to research jurors, and people are being charged with crimes relating to their actions taken using social media. And once those individuals are convicted, many of them are placed on probation and their use of social media is often limited by the terms of their probation.

Of course, that gap in the Court’s analysis is a perfect example of the difficulties courts encounter when attempting to specify, limit, and define ever-changing concepts such as “social media” and “sites.” Because these concepts are constantly evolving, courts would be wise to draft broad, elastic definitions in their decisions that will withstand the test of time, lest their conclusions be rendered outdated as soon as the ink dries.

Just Delete Me | A directory of direct links to delete your account from web services.

JUSTDELETE.ME

SCIENCE

justdelete.me

Have you ever wanted to track down all the web apps and online accounts

that have your personal information and just remove yourself?

JustDelete.Me helps readers do just that. The service features a giant

list of the web’s most popular apps and services with links so that you

can delete your account. In addition, the site categorizes services into

four categories by how difficult it is to remove yourself. Green means

it’s easy, yellow signifies a service that requires a few additional

steps, red indicates that the account cannot be deleted without

contacting customer service, and the black code, which is thankfully

rare, marks an account that cannot be deleted. In addition, readers may

install the associated Chrome Extension, which alerts readers to when

they are on a page that is listed on the JustDelete.Me site and then

takes readers through the deletion process. [CNH]

Periscope lets you broadcast live video to the world. Going live will instantly notify your followers who can join, comment and send you hearts in real time. The more hearts you get, the higher they flutter on the screen.

Other features:

[+] REPLAY: When your broadcast is over, you can make it available for replay so viewers can watch later. Viewers can replay your broadcast with comments and hearts to relive the full experience. Replays currently last 24 hours. You can delete your replay at any time.

[+] PRIVATE: If you want to broadcast to specific people, press the lock icon before going live and choose who you want to invite to your broadcast. 

[+] TWITTER: You can choose to share your Periscope broadcasts on Twitter by tapping the bird icon before you start broadcasting. When you go live, you’ll tweet a link so that your Twitter followers can watch on the web (or in the app)

[+] MANAGE NOTIFICATIONS: Periscope will suggest people for you to follow based on your Twitter network. You can always follow new people, or unfollow them if you don’t want to be notified when they go live. You can also adjust notification preferences in Periscope Settings (in Profile)

[+] HEARTS: Periscope keeps track of how many hearts you get from your viewers. The more hearts, the higher you get in the “Most Loved” list.

Starting a Podcast? Here’s What to Buy–Lawyerist

by Sam Glover on March 27th, 2015

“…When I was trying to figure out what kind of equipment we needed to start podcasting, I was frustrated by the lack of a good just-get-this-stuff list so I didn’t have to research what to get, buy it, realize it’s the wrong thing, then buy something else. Fortunately that only happened a couple of times. To save you the same frustrating experience, here is my just-get-this-stuff list, which is also what we are using right now to record the Lawyerist Podcast…”.

The standard iOS Messages app–you know, the app you use daily for trading all those text messages, photos, and videos–can do much more than you might think. Not only can you forward any text messages you receive, you can also find out when a given message was sent or received, shush an annoying group thread, and sync Messages between your iOS device and your Mac.
