  • Publication number: 20200192530
    Abstract: A press and hold function for conducting online surveys with a respondent in order to obtain genuine responses to the online surveys is presented herein. A user interface associated with an online survey is presented to the respondent on a screen of a computing device. The online survey can include a set of questions. Each question of the online survey can include a set of response elements. Each of these response elements can be associated with one or more response duration. In order to select a response to a question, the respondent can press a response button that is associated with one or more response elements to that question. The respondent then holds the response button for the response duration associated with the response element. After the response duration is complete, the response associated with the response element is deemed to be the response of the respondent.

  • Publication number: 20200117339
    Abstract: A social media platform provides a map-based graphical user interface (GUI) for accessing social media content submitted to a social media platform supported by the map-based GUI. User icons are displayed on a map of the GUI to represent locations of friend users. The locations of at least some users are represented by their user icons at a regional granularity, such that the displayed locations that are different from their accurate locations, but that are located within an accurate geographical region such as a city or a town. Users can select the granularity level at which their icons are displayed to others.

  • Publication number: 20200120097
    Abstract: A server system for a map-based social media platform maintains user location information to enable the rendering of friend icons on a map at a corresponding display locations. The system maintains a per user access control list (ACL) that lists all users whose icons can be viewed by a requesting user. The ACL can include a designation of respective display granularity levels for different friend users.

  • Publication number: 20200102951
    Abstract: A pump rod has a head extending from a neck, and the head is received within a drive slot of a drive link. The head includes a projection, and has an area smaller than an area of the head. The projection contacts an inner surface of the drive slot. The drive link may include a projection aligned with a centerline of the drive link. The drive link projection contacts a head of the pump rod. The projections provide a reduced contact area between the pump rod and the drive link, thereby reducing any side-loading on the pump rod and increasing a lifespan of the wear parts.

  • Patent number: 10602332
    Abstract: The ability for an organization's administrator to customize assets and content that, their users have access to is a substantial capability. This capability is not just to facilitate delivery of the correct content to the relevant audience, but is also important to ensure that the content is appropriate for the endpoint. The administrator may curate organizational links that are provided as a hierarchical directory of sites and applications for the organization. Embodiments are directed to programming the organizational links that propagate to mobile applications. A server side application programming interface (API) may be provided to access a organization's curated links, a web user experience may be provided to enable the administrator to manage and curate the organizational links, and a mobile-specific user experience may be provided for viewing the links in a manner that enables quick access to the most relevant content to users of the organization.

  • Publication number: 20200084232
    Abstract: A cybersecurity system and method utilizing SOUND reputation, where a set of reputations are associated with each actor on a network. The actors on a network may be users, hosts, applications, and the like. The associated reputations are aggregated and updated as new information about an actor's activity is reported according to a defined and modifiable protocol, or policy. The actor's activity may be reported by one or more threat sensors. The effect of a particular misbehavior can be tuned to match the needs of the specific network. When a bad actor's reputation sinks too low, the system can take whatever action is appropriate: reports can be sent, an operator can be notified, the offender can be cut off from the network, or the like.

  • Publication number: 20200073504
    Abstract: A force input sensor includes a load cell to adapt a compressive force applied to the force input sensor into a strain experienced by a strain sensor in the load cell. In particular, the load cell includes two compression plates separated from one another by a gap so as to define a volume between them. A flexible substrate (a “diaphragm”)—includes a strain sensor and is disposed and supported within the volume. One of the two compression plates includes a feature (a “loading feature”) that extends toward a central region of the flexible substrate. As a result of this construction, when the compression plates receive a compressive force, the loading feature induces a bending moment in the flexible substrate, thereby straining the strain sensor.
