Social Media Share Scare – Why You Need To Share Less
Social media sharing is a second nature to most of us by now – we must have our semi-random ‘friends’ know that we are amazingly cool and popular, so that they can spend their days wishing they were us as they gaze wistfully down their Facebook Feed. Obviously this involves checking into exciting places (including airports, festivals and expensive restaurants) and sharing way too much information about our general lives (including where we live and the awesome car we drive). The only problem is this isn’t just impressing your so-called friends, but a whole bunch of even MORE sinister people – identity thieves, cyber-stalkers and burglars. Basically what I’m trying to say is that you will probably lose everything you hold dear – including your money, house and your identity – unless you read this article and STOP SHARING SO MUCH. But of course – you need to determine your own priorities. After you read this article.
Should we be concerned about Facebook Privacy?
With the constant stream of news articles and items highlighting Facebook security concerns, is there real reason to be worried, or is it just a few people being hyper-paranoid? How much control do we really have over what data is stored about us, and what can be done with that data?
Facebook Google Pluses itself
The latest round of Facebook changes are clearly designed to combat the threat the social behemoth is feeling from Google Plus. The good news is for once the changes are all for the better – more prominent privacy settings for each post, the ability to add a location tag to statuses and the revamp of the photo viewer (minus advertising!). Is it enough to keep the Google Plus converts at bay? Time will tell.
