ONN – Took Pew Research Center Digital Knowledge Quiz – Here’s How I Scored
I took the quiz to determine what questions the researchers asked that would cause a poor response rate from Americans. I also wanted to see how I would do.
I missed 1 out of 10. I wanted to score 100 percent rather than 9 of 10. But what I missed wasn’t the one I thought because Pew’s reporting is off. It reported that I missed the ninth question, when it was the eighth question I missed.
That was on what incognito browsing does. The question mentions that it’s used at work in the example. So, you do it because you think your superiors will not see what you’re looking at.
Pew says that answer is wrong. But the reason for the answer of you not wanting to have your colleagues see what you are browsing makes no sense at all. Indeed, the explanation for the selection of the correct itself had a caveat that did not appear in question: it says that for workplaces that have monitoring devices, the privacy selection does not work.
But most people don’t know that. They assume that privacy means just that – no monitoring.
So, even Pew makes mistakes when it comes to this subject. Proving that in this tech age there’s a lot many don’t understand well at all.
Note from Oakland News Now Technical: this video-blog post shows the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
