Overview The Tor network is a group of volunteer-operated servers that allows people to improve their privacy and security on the Internet. Tor's users employ this network by connecting through a series of virtual tunnels rather than making a direct connection, thus allowing both organizations and individuals to share information over public networks without compromising their privacy. Along the same line, Tor is an effective censorship circumvention tool, allowing its users to reach otherwise blocked destinations or content. Tor can also be used as a building block for software developers to create new communication tools with built-in privacy features.

Journalists use Tor to communicate more safely with whistleblowers and dissidents. A branch of the U.S. Why we need Tor

Context and past behavior are the best indicators of what a user might want to do next. Frequent visitor or commenter? Heavy consumer?

SHOCKER: 3% To 7.5% Of Fans See Your Page's Posts If you have a business fan page, you want those fans to see your posts, right? Well, the chart above shows that fan page owners are grossly overestimating how many people they’re reaching through posts. (Note: That chart based on pages that together represent more than 400 million fans; it was complied by PageLever, which is in beta and growing its data set. It’s more of a shocker than you thought, isn’t it? I’ve been told that HubSpot recommends a 0.5 percent feedback rate as a goal. If you aren’t thinking about how to get more likes and comments, you probably don’t understand how EdgeRank is reducing your visibility to your fans.
