Social Media with Privacy in Mind with Greg Magarshak, Founder and CEO of QBIX

On this episode of Silicon Valley Insider, Keith Koo’s guest is Greg Magarshak, Founder and CEO of QBIX a platform based on open source software that wants to change the world.

QBIX believes:

“There needs to be an open source software platform that any community anywhere in the world can run on local intranets, whether it’s a university in Bulgaria or a village in Africa. Collaborating on a document shouldn’t need the signal to go to google docs servers. Making plans with friends, or booking a reservation locally shouldn’t need Facebook.

This is the future of social networking.”

So with all the negative news on how big platforms like Facebook and Twitter own and control you data, see how companies like QBIX are trying to put the power back in the hands of the people.

On this week’s Cyber-Tip, Keith discusses the “Silent Librarian” malware group and how hackers are using “seasonality” to be create more sophisticated phishing attacks.
