Sociability: how accessible is social media? - Life Matters - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Social media has pretty much taken over the world in the last few years. For lots of us, it’s part of our everyday routine—possibly even an addiction for some—and it’s a brilliant way to connect and share with almost anyone we want to.

But for many people living with a disability, the world of social media is just out of reach.

  1. Cyber vetting and personality - Future Tense - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

    Rightly or wrongly many corporations and recruitment agencies use social media platforms as a form of employee vetting. The Facebook sites and Twitter posts of potential workers are scoured for indications of anti-social behaviour. But just how effective is social media at predicting personality type? Well, the London-based Online Privacy Foundation has been conducting research into that very question. We discuss their findings with the Foundation’s co-founder Chris Sumner.

  2. Damien McCormack – Accessibility means business

    Over 4 million people in Australia have a disability. As a result they may use the web in a different way to you: a keyboard instead of a mouse; a screen reader instead of a screen. Accessibility is the way that you can tap into this large and growing audience.

    In this session, Damien will look at why accessibility matters - not just because it is the right thing to do, or a legal requirement. He will discuss how accessibility leads to more robust, maintainable, searchable and usable websites that meet everyone’s needs. Damien will also explore the opportunities accessibility offers for mobile web design, and provide some practical advice about how to include accessibility in your next project.

    How much do you hate being left on hold to the help desk? Is it possible to replace call centres, help desks and support lines with social media? An Australian company is trying to do just that. Plus, all the ways you can tell the internet to not track you online. And, what happens to your data when you die - all those passwords, banking records, your Facebook page?
