    Is privacy becoming a serious concern while using the Social Media ?


    This has been bothering me for a few months now. The regular changes in privacy settings by the popular social media networks is becoming a cause of serious concern.
    The only outcome of these updates is that our information becomes a little more insecure every time there is a new update.

    Here are a few of these recent updates

    Technology and Science News - ABC News
    Instagram backtracks on privacy policy update | The Journal News | LoHud.com | lohud.com

    Most of our online activities are tracked and the information is used to provide us with more relevant advertisements.

    What can we do to to still be secure in this ever-changing web environment?

    Don't share the private things that you wouldn't want the whole world to know. I think that's the best thing to do if your concern is security

    I agree with you! Nowadays we can't really trust the social networks when it comes to security. So as what have weboutgateway said, Don't share your private things.

    As far as security is your concern, you should not post ANY kind of personal and private information in social media sites and their accounts.
    Social media sites can gather two kinds of information from user :
    1) Information that is shared
    2) Information gathered through electronic tracking

    Other big issue is that social media sites often change their policies without giving prior notice to users.

    Social media is atypical way to socialize to people from your reach to distant people. in the past few months, privacy is a major concern of having social media. For my own point of view, privacy is a concern thus don't mention, post, comment, and/or cite anything to be kept in private.Just this: know what to be in public, and know more what to be in private.

    I think the same, private informations is to stay private and you should not let everybody know about your private life, so i think we the users are responsible for this lack of privacy in the net!!!!!!!!!

    Fortunately we have been aware of this for quite some time (thread started in Dec' 2012)! So this is fairly old news now.

    I think it's all been said, time to let the thread RIP.
