Qnext Helps Increase Facebook Security and Privacy

By Ashley Caputo March 22, 2013

Users have begun to adapt to social media as a way of life just in the same manner they did when mobile phones became a social norm. Now that the initial shock is over, the industry has begun to address a few issues that need to be attended to, like privacy and copyright issues.

Facebook, a pioneer in the social media world, has begun to address these alarming issues by partnering with Qnext Corporation, a social personal cloud technology developer, in order to restore the trust that users once for the platform. With Qnext, NETGEAR Smart Network Routers and NAS device users will now be able to remotely access and share their content with their Facebook friends with more security and privacy than ever.

With Qnext, users can share content within Facebook with moving it from its original location, create and share files of any size from more than one storage location and control who has access to it at all times right from the Facebook interface.

“At last Facebook users have complete control of their content’s destiny on Facebook. Qnext connects user devices and cloud services to their Facebook account and provides secure access to their private content for their own use or to selectively share content with Facebook friends privately,” said Anthony DeCristofaro, president and CEO of Qnext. “Qnext expands Facebook content sharing to new levels with NETGEAR while adding a compelling reason for businesses to use Facebook to access and share content.”

Just a few months ago that Instagram issued a change in its privacy policy and terms of service because of increased notoriety in the social media world. The new regulations informed users that any photos uploaded onto Instagram could be used for its own financial gains for commercial purposes.

Even Pheed, one of the newest social media platforms to brace the market, has gained notoriety among celebrities because of its intricate copyright policies. It provides a system that allows users to watermark the photos and videos they share on its network, giving celebrities and teenagers the ability to protect the information that they choose to publish.

This type of change in privacy and technicalities brings to light how social media companies are adjusting to the recent explosion in its market.
