How does my social media profile know what I'm shopping for? Imagine this familiar scenario: you’re browsing online, looking up deals for your summer wardrobe. After a few minutes surfing, you take a break on social media. Suddenly, you see it – an ad for the same sandals and sun hat you just saw on an unrelated website! How are online ads tailored specifically to your tastes and interests? Knowing how your browsing information is tracked and used to create your ad suggestions will make you a safer and smarter consumer. To start, you can learn how to:
Post your security answers in the comments Playing “harmless” social media games may make yourself a target for identity theft. Public online posts asking you to comment your “dragon name” based off of words corresponding with your birthdate, if you remember your childhood phone number and address, or tagging a family member gives potential fraudsters answers to common security questions.

Lovelace’s intellect and passion for mathematics inspired inventor and close friend Charles Babbage to call her “The Enchantress of Numbers.” Lovelace included her notes to her translations of Babbage’s lectures about his proposed “Analytical Machine,” which is recognized today as the first programmable computer. In her notes, Lovelace muses that such a machine could compute information other than numbers, if programmed to do so – a prediction over one hundred years before modern computers. Her notes also included an algorithm for use in the Analytical Machine, now considered the first published computer program.
