Some Murcian entrepreneurs create 'Neting', the first social network of Digital Networking

Friday, February 22nd, 2019

"It costs seven times less to sell to a client that is recommended than to one you do not know"

Some Murcian entrepreneurs, José A. Gambín and Juan Villa have developed 'Neting', the first Networking app that allows optimizing results and minimizing costs through the collaborative economy and the concept of 'win-win', a marketing strategy that has as an objective that all parties benefit: companies, distributors, sales channels and consumers.

The application makes a channeling of the demands of the users and allows to share services, products or needs of clients, being able to manage everything through a simple Smartphone.

"It's the evolution of the traditional concept of 'Networking' but in the digital field," says Gambín.

The result is an optimization of time and a greater volume of business through a simple system: users can offer their products or services exclusively, generate and receive business opportunities and, at the same time, recommend a service from a professional, so a reward is also received.

"It is an indispensable tool for anyone who wants to prosper in the business world, either with their skills as a commercial, through the exploitation and loyalty of their customer base, or using the networking network to promote products and services and encourage the sales among the users of the network, "explains José A. Gambín, the project manager with Juan Villa.

All this in a fast, easy and orderly way: managing business relationships 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, in order to take full advantage of the qualities and capabilities of each user of 'Neting'.

"The user who decides to be part of the social network will enjoy exclusivity of their sector or activity within the team of which they are a part.

In this way, the tool gains attractiveness and effectiveness for the user since it will not have to compete with other professionals who perform the same activity.

In addition, the app allows those interested in being part of the network, search existing teams to find those where their services are free and able to enter them, "adds Gambín.

HOW DOES IT ARISE?

'Neting' emerges as a natural evolution of conventional professional contact networks, which spread throughout the world, eliminating barriers (displacements, time, money) and structures that are already obsolete with the digital world.

Gambín explains that they have always used their circle of contacts and networking to grow their business, "we believe that no commercial action can overcome the word of mouth."

If we add the advantages of digitization to all this, the result was 'Neting'.

An app where you can create a network of entrepreneurs who can send contacts and business opportunities;

where to receive rewards for business opportunities sent to other users;

where to manage those opportunities and control the profits they generate;

where to send offers every week;

and where to be informed of interesting events and activities.

The secret of his success, according to Gambín, "is that it costs seven times less to sell to a client that is recommended than to one you do not know.

Word of mouth has always been an infallible marketing tool. "

The operation began at the end of last year, when members of the Benemérita were alerted by a woman that her daughter was suffering a series of coercion and threats in order to obtain images of sexual content.

Apparently, the victim's mother detected the facts when trying to solve a problem with her daughter's mobile phone.

When he unlocked the device, he noticed that messages were entering whose contents alarmed him.

The sender of the messages was a person that the daughter had met through an online game.

After maintaining the first contact through the game, the now investigated asked the victim for his phone number and they started talking about messaging applications, initiating a brief remote relationship in which, from the first moment, he had requested photographs and videos of sexual content.

Given the refusal of the girl, the author of the facts changed his attitude and went on to demand photographs and videos of a sexual nature using a threatening tone in his messages.

From the investigation developed it is clear that the child came to feel intimidated and coerced, since she did not know what the alleged perpetrator could do with the compromised material that she already had in her possession.

In this case, the intervention of the mother of the minor has been crucial to put an end to the extortion with lustful spirit to which the victim was being subjected.

Once the operation began, the civil guards carried out a series of investigations that allowed them to identify and locate the suspect in the town of Torrevieja, Alicante, who has been investigated and who has been instructed to act as an alleged offender. sexual abuse.

The investigated and the diligences instructed have been made available to the Court of Instruction of Cartagena and the Office of Minors of Murcia.

Main risks faced by minors in the network

– Grooming, is the cyberbullying of an adult towards a minor for sexual purposes or to obtain images of a sexual nature of the child in the case of pedophiles, or even to maintain real sexual contact with the child, in the case of pedophiles

– Cyberbulling, is the cyberbullying among equals in the school environment.

– Identity theft, it is widely used taking advantage of weak or predictable passwords of your social networks, or obtaining them through social engineering.

They use profiles to pass themselves off as minors in social networks in order to harass other minors or use their profiles in online games.

recommendations

The Civil Guard, within the framework of the preventive actions set out in the Master Plan for the Coexistence and Improvement of Safety in Educational Centers and their Environments, has been carrying out a series of training actions including talks on new technologies or the risks derived from an improper use of the internet, aimed at schoolchildren, teachers and AMPA's.

They warn that both new information and communication technologies and the internet should not be a simple game or a mere entertainment and not a way to meet friends.

It should be understood as a work tool, offering, among others, the following security measures:

Do not disclose personal data or third parties to anyone.

If done, do it as safely as possible in a known environment.

Once a photograph, video or simple information is "hung", you lose all control over it.

Do not accept or add as contacts to strangers.

Do not provide passwords;

He who is a friend today may not be tomorrow.

Do not answer emails from strangers.

If you use programs to share music, movies, etc., keep in mind that the folders used by the program are available to millions of users.

Control who can see your profile and post on your wall.

Customize privacy settings: "only my friends".

In short, do not do on the internet what you would not do in real life.

Internet use tips

On the internet we must use logic and common sense, as we would in real life.

The consequences of misuse of the network go beyond the virtual plane, and can generate serious real consequences.

On the internet, not everyone is who they say they are.

Sometimes they use techniques, social engineering among others, to obtain our most precious treasure, our privacy and personal data.

In computers connected to the internet we must have updated not only the operating systems, antivirus and firewalls, but also all the programs that are used in the network, browsers, plugins (java), etc.

With this we will give solution to the vulnerabilities that are appearing.

Remember that the best antivirus is behind our keyboard, we ourselves are our worst vulnerability, but also our best antivirus.

Not only do we have to protect our equipment, we must also protect our Wi-Fi network to avoid non-consensual access to it and thus avoid possible criminal activities from our connection.

Remember that if they access our Wi-Fi network, not only do we lose speed in the connection, but they can easily access our equipment.

For all the services that need it, we will use robust passwords (more than 8 alphanumeric characters combined with a symbol).

Easy to remember for us but impossible to deduce for the cybercriminal.

Avoid using the same for all our accounts, and renew them every so often.

We must protect our privacy in the network, avoiding making unnecessary data public, which may harm us now or in the future.

In our transactions and purchases through the network we will be cautious to make them from safe sites, avoiding trap advertisements.

As for transactions with our bank, we will always do so from a secure connection (https), distrusting any communication that reaches us by email (SPAM and PHISHING).

We will pay attention to the downloads that we make, always making them from the official web pages of the products that we need, with which we will avoid being infected with malware camouflaged in fake antivirus (rogues) or that our equipment is trojanized with any type of malware (zombie) .

We will also navigate on trusted websites to avoid unwanted infections (Ransomware virus from the Police).

We will promote good practices in the network towards minors, educating them and informing them of the dangers that can be found in the network, urging them to have their family in case of the slightest problem.

Remember that the internet is not just the PC: we must take the same precautions from tablets and smartphones.

The hidden face of the Oscars: that's how profitable they are

Friday, February 22nd, 2019

The most famous prizes of the cinema have multiple benefits, both for the winners -who have increased their cache- and for local businesses, limousine services, jewelry rental companies , etc.

Stars nominated for best actor earn 20% more in their next role

Next Sunday, February 24 will take place one of the most anticipated cinema galas: the Oscars.

Some prizes that enjoy international prestige and that many galordonados take advantage of to talk about social and political problems.

The gala, in addition and for the first time since 30 years ago, will not have a presenter;

a decision that has not been without controversy.

But aside from this and what it means to win a statuette, the Oscars have a hidden face.

And, according to the data handled by the comparator "Acierto.com", they are tremendously profitable for all parties;

from the actors themselves, to the businesses in the area.

Thus and although the stars do not receive money – yes, the statuette costs about 657 euros – to be nominated for best actor or actress is to earn 20% more in the next role, and the box office turnover can increase up to 150% after of the ceremony.

In any case, the investment made by the producers must be taken into account, which only in the DVDs that they send to the academics, can reach up to 250 thousand euros.

To this disbursement we must add that of the diffusion campaign, advertising, and others.

Another economic benefit has to do with the ads.

Emit one of 30 seconds during the gala round 2 million euros.

Regarding the local economy, the data reveal an impact that does not fall below 60 million euros -producers, actors, guests, and others spend money in restaurants, hotels, and so on.

Only in limousines the estimated cost is 1.5 million euros.

Up to 16 million euros per jewel

But the actors will not be the only ones who will shine during the Oscars, but so will the jewels.

Diamonds, rubies, earrings, rings, chokers and all kinds of accessories will sparkle and be part of the celebrities' wardrobe.

The most surprising thing is its price: some of those that have shown up to now have even exceeded 20 million euros.

Among the most expensive are the diamond necklace of Lucida Start that Anne Hathaway wore at the Oscars 2011 -whose value reaches 8 million euros-, the earrings of Lorrain Schwartz and the ring that Angelina Jolie wore in 2009 -all costs 3 million euros-, the set of earrings and ring that Cate Blanchett presumed in 2014 -12 million euros-, and the replica of the Hope diamond that Gloria Stuart wore in 1998 -this valued at 16 million euros-.

But what would happen if these celebrities lost one of these beauties?

It is a real danger.

Fortunately and given their value, they are insured.

In addition, when they move to the beauty salons or residences of the actors, the maximum security measures are taken.

In any, anyone can insure their jewelry.

In fact, if you have some that exceed a certain value, you will probably have to declare them separately (in home insurance).

It is the case, for example, that they exceed 3,000 euros or 10% of the insured content.

The first thing you will need is to go to a professional to have them checked and calculate the value of each piece.

The appraisal should include a specific description, the size of the gem, the metals from which it is made, and so on.

In addition, it must be specified that they are stored in a safe.

Otherwise, the policy will cost you an additional 80 euros.

When the value exceeds 6,000 euros you will have to prove your existence through photos.

If you are the victim of a theft, the insurance company will indemnify you for the estimated or declared value, which is a good reason to value them well.

And be careful if you said they were in the safe but you had not saved them in it.

Be that as it may, you should review the conditions of the policy at your fingertips.

Among the companies that offer jewelry insurance we find Pelayo -with its Home Insurance Complex-, Ocaso -with its 24 Home Insurance-, Mapfre with its Platinum Home, Mutua Madrileña with MM Hogar- and Zurich.
