Blockchain is a digital ledger of transactions duplicated and distributed across an entire network of computer systems on the blockchain which makes it more difficult to hack or tamper with. The popularity of blockchain has been increasing with the growth of social media and the internet of things (IoT). Social media are interactive digitally mediated technologies that facilitate the creation or sharing and exchange of information, ideas, opinions and interests via virtual communities and social network platforms. However, unmonitored social accounts can be the target of hackers who post fraudulent messages or virus-infected links that spread to contacts and followers, and “employee weakness” is responsible for 20% of cyberattacks in companies. So, it has become essential to secure both personal and professional social media networks, accounts and data.
Blockchain Technology for Secure Social Media Computing covers recent advances, trends and future opportunities in the security framework of social media-computing. The contributors focus on how to protect social media platforms, and present methods for making social media computing more reliable and effective to achieve trusted IoT-based social computing with blockchain technology.
The book is aimed at an advanced research audience in industry and academia focused on blockchain technology and social media computing working in cybersecurity, security data analytics, computer science, distributed computing, networking, internet of things and related fields of applications. It will be also of interest to application and software developers and project managers using blockchain technology and multiple encryptions.Homepage
