Florida, FTC, Girl Scout Cookies, More: Friday Morning Buzz, February 28, 2014

Facebook is getting rid of its e-mail service because nobody used it.

There is a new legal resource available for Massasschusetts residents.

Florida State University Library has launched the Florida State University Digital Library (FSUDL). “Currently, the FSUDL highlights collections from Special Collections & Archives, Heritage Protocol, and the Claude Pepper Library. These include yearbooks from 1900 to 1997, historical photos of campus and selections from the Paul A.M. Dirac Papers.” I didn’t see a URL on the story, so here it is: http://fsu.digital.flvc.org/islandora/object/fsu%3Aroot

Scotland now has a land information tool. “The practical uses for the LIS tool include being able to search for sites of special scientific interest (SSSI), monuments and buildings, native woodlands and waterways. A simple area search covering Rothesay, for example, returns a list of one SSSI (Bute Central Lochs), three scheduled ancient monuments (St Mary’s Chapel, the Kirk Dam/Thom’s Cuts and Rothesay Castle) and 193 listed buildings.”

The FTC is having a Twitter chat next Tuesday, March 4th, to answer questions about consumer scams.

When I’m reading security news, one phrase I don’t want to see is “We can actually set the machine on fire.”

More security – they were just floating around: 360 million account credentials found. “One batch of 105 million details, discovered about 10 days ago by the company, included email addresses and corresponding passwords, but it isn’t clear what Web services the credentials unlock, he said.”

Because I am always looking for more: 29 Social Media Tools Recommended by the Pros.

Need to find a place to buy Girl Scout Cookies? Apparently there’s an app for that (press release). Good morning, Internet…

I love your comments, I love your site suggestions, and I love you. Feel free to comment on the blog, or @ResearchBuzz on Twitter. Thanks!
