Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Prior to 2001, gilded hard cover encyclopedias were cracked to fact check everything from raptor names to State capitals. Today the world’s most popular English encyclopedia is more often used to identify pop culture icons and social media companies. A recent Telegraph article listed the 50 most-viewed Wikipedia articles of 2008 and 2009 and while the results are slightly inaccurate, they’re pretty interesting. Below are this year’s most visited Wikipedia pages measured in hits per day. 1. Wiki (131,383 page hits per day): For both 2008 and 2009 the “Wiki” page and the Wikipedia page have maintained a spot in the top 10 visited pages. It’s fairly safe to say that the majority of visitors to these articles are looking for definitions, community information and editing tips. 2. The Beatles (111,896): In the Telegraph’s list for 2008, two different Beatles pages are listed as numbers 14 and 18 for 2008; however, according to the original Wikistics source statistics the “Beatles” page is ranked at number 20. In 2009, the page became the second most visited page on Wikipedia due to automated requests. The fact that the Fab Four’s catalogue is due to be re-released in digitally remastered format within the year also can’t hurt page traffic. 3. Michael Jackson (79,734): Not surprisingly, Michael Jackson’s page is among the most viewed pages on Wikipedia. The day after Jackson’s death the page received 5.9 million views. Of the top 10 most-viewed Wikipedia pages of 2009, Jackson’s name is also mentioned on the Deaths in 2009 page and briefly in the Beatles page due to his controversial purchase of most of the Lennon-McCartney Beatles catalog in 1985. *Favicon.ico (78,077): While the Telegraph articles lists this as number 4, it’s irrelevant as the Wikistics stat source cites that the Favicon.ico ranking includes browser-based requests for the Wikipedia icon. 4. YouTube (72,318): Whether looking to cite corporate info or simply interested in finding out what the fuss is all about, Wikipedians have flocked to both YouTube and Facebook pages for the last two years.5. Wikipedia (52,542)6. Barack Obama (49,401): In 2008 the Barack Obama page was the 3rd most visited page on Wikipedia and not surprisingly, interest has dwindled post-election. Sarah Palin’s page (64,465) was the 4th most visited page in 2008 and John McCain’s page (34,486) was the 13th most visited page. 7. Deaths in 2009 (48,758): Apparently the public is clamoring to remember those they’ve lost in 2009. Both the Deaths in 2008 page and the 2009 page have made the top 10 list of most visited Wikipedia pages. It looks like memorial sites like My Death Space and Respectance aren’t such a strange idea after all. 8. United States (46,545): This page offers basic information on politics, economics, demographics and customs of the United States. With a large population and a large number of Wikipedians hailing from the US, the page is a popular one. Surprisingly it is not listed on the community’s most vandalized pages. Meanwhile both the US Democratic Party and Republican Party pages are listed. 9. Facebook (42,679)10. Wikipedia Current Events Portal (40,962): This page lists daily news topics and the latest Wikinews articles. It is a great source for breaking news stories. The page also links to recent deaths and ongoing events such as the automotive industry crisis. For the Telegraph’s entire list visit the article. You can also check them against Wikistics list of yearly page hits for 2008 and 2009.Another interesting resource is Wikipedia’s most popular articles within the last hour. While recently deceased celebrities appeared on this list at the time this article was written, there were definitely some interesting anomalies. For instance, the Ernie Davis Wikipedia page saw a dramatic increase in hits. When cross-referenced against real time search engine Collecta it appears HBO was airing the Ernie Davis biography “The Express”. Audience members were simultaneously watching television while searching for Davis’ biography.

Lyricist-poet Gulzar was in the capital on Friday to launch the DVDs of Godan and Nirmala from his 26-episode 2004 TV serial called Tehreer…Munshi Premchand Ki on Doordarshan. Doordarshan has brought out these iconic novels from the Indian classical literature in a contemporary format. Commenting on Premchand’s works during the launch Gulzar said, ‘I adapted most of Premchand’s books for the screen because the author is utterly close to my heart. I met Premchand during three stages of my life. I met him first in school when I read Hajj-E-Akbar and Idgah. I could very well relate to the story of ‘Idgah’ because I had seen my mother making chapatis in the tandoor and her hands used to get blistered.’ Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The director said that the second time he met Premchand was when he was in college. He said, ‘I started relating with the sociopolitical scenario of society. Last, I met him was when I became a director. I adored the way how beautifully he used to bring out the small nuances of our day-to-day lives.’ The 79-year-old director who started off his film career with director Bimal Roy’s Bandini said that films today should not be blamed for the evils of the society. He also commented on the art of cinema and said that cinema is the mirror of the society. Nothing goes to society from cinema.

Wow, Seriously?Unlike big banks and corporations with armies of engineers dedicated to thwarting cyberattacks, small business’ security is usually much easier to crack. And, according to McAfee’s global SMB leader, Bill Rielly, cyberthieves know this, often making the small guy a more attractive target.Email is one of the main starting points for many cyberattacks, Rielly says. And now that almost everyone has email and a VPN connection on their phone if a device is stolen it can become a companywide disaster. If a phone falls into the wrong hands, they could easily wreak havoc with access to emails, the company’s secure network and apps linked to personal, corporate financial accounts and social media accounts. Protecting those devices with a passcode in order to keep private information private is of the upmost importance.Related: On Hack, Snapchat Founder Says ‘We Thought We Had Done Enough’Obviously, it’s also important to keep devices from being compromised by malicious content that comes from an email or the web.”Cyber criminals know that when people get emails that look interesting or have provocative titles or subject lines, they’ll click on them,” Rielly says. “Make sure you have a solution in place to prevent malicious emails from getting to your employees’ phones, tablets and computers … If you take out the malicious apps through web or email protection your eliminating a big part of the problem.”If your company does fall victim to a cyberattack, the odds aren’t great.
