Social Media

Social Media services are targets for your data. It is only a matter of time before you get hacked through a social media service. A basic understanding of what data hackers can get at and use later can prepare you for the worst.

Facebook

Twitter

Twitter has been in the news lately about banning and removing accounts. They do have an aggressive tracking program in place.

Instagram

Instagram is owned by Facebook, so not the best caretakers of your data. Location access and tracking, information collecting, and photo ownership and sharing (unless you have a private account) are just some of the ways your data is used.
