Everyone needs to follow these password changes due to Heartbleed!
 
The Heartbleed Checklist: What Passwords to Change
To enlarge image: http://goo.gl/MfNWZ2

Heartbleed bug is a major security flaw in OpenSSL, and is one of the biggest threats ever to face the online community.

Conflicting reports have led to panic – nobody seems to know which social networking sites and other popular services have been affected.

To dispel the confusion, the iVPN folks have created a checklist that tells you which sites have been affected by the HeartBleed bug, and whether it's safe to change your password.

A key highlight from visual: (after the heartbleed news) It's highly recommended to change your passwords, especially if you are using Blogger, Google, Gmail. Yahoo, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, YouTube (Pinterest too).

Tip: You can check if any website is vulnerable of heartbleed bug with this tool: lastpass.com/heartbleed

You don't need to change your password if you are using 2FA. You could have the weakest password in the world, and it still wouldn't work for you.

Are You Practicing the Seven Habits?

Last year I wrote about the behaviors and habits that I see some of most effective and influential Google+ users exhibiting. Do you remember them? (http://owl.li/tT7jU)

1. Post Thoughtful Content
2. Share Other People's Content
3. Engage Other People
4. Mention Other People
5. Promote Other People
6. Consistent Activity
7. Profile Completeness

Now that it's been a while, how are you doing with these techniques? Have they become habits or are you still working on incorporating some of them into your daily routine?

Let's take a moment to review their importance while, again, drawing on the wisdom of Dr. Covey:

“Start with the end in mind."

What are your goals and objectives for Google+? I've mentioned before that if you're just here for fun, don't pay any attention to the advice that I'm giving! These aren't rules for personal use. But if you're here at least partially to develop a business or personal brand, or to grow personally or professionally, those desires should play a role in determining how you use the platform.

“To change ourselves effectively, we first had to change our perceptions.”

And nowhere is this more true than on Google+, right? How many of you starting using the network expecting the same kind of experience you'd had on Facebook? Rather, this platform has developed a very different culture and micro-society that thrives on discussion and engagement and interaction. Effective Google Plussers have recognized the shift, not only in usage but in perception, and have embraced it.

“Habit is the intersection of knowledge (what to do), skill (how to do), and desire (want to do).”

So when we've determined our goals and come to a better understanding of both the nature and the benefits of the platform, we can begin to want to participate in a very passionate and informed way. And when we merge in Dr. Covey's 7th habit, "Sharpen the Saw” we can constantly be developing the skills and knowledge to make these kinds of behaviors habits.

Here, that means taking the time to read great posts, follow great people, and learn from them. Fortunately, that part is pretty easy. But it's a necessary first step! If you circle brilliant minds in your field of interest, your Google+ stream will be filled with wonderful commentary and ideas and information - the kind of material that begs to be shared. And as your interest and passion grows, you will be driven to jump into these discussions and mention these individuals you're forming relationships with and talk about them yourself.

These activities will become habits, and if done strategically, will ensure that your time spent on the platform is as effective and beneficial as possible.

To learn more about these habits, please review the original post: http://owl.li/tT7jU

And if you know others who are struggling with what to do on Google+ and how to really use it to benefit themselves or their business, won't you share this post with them?

I hope you have a fantastic weekend. Thanks for reading.

Time for me to go to bed. Have not gotten up on time for a month since my illness. Need to get up 5 AM tomorrow. Hopefully 5 alarm clocks will do :)
