Using information that you provide about your location, hobbies, interests, and friends, a malicious person could impersonate a trusted friend or convince you that they have the authority to access other personal or financial data.
Take advantage of a site’s privacy settings. The default settings for some sites may allow anyone to see your profile, but you can customize your settings to restrict access to only certain people. There is still a risk that private information could be exposed despite these restrictions, so don’t post anything that you wouldn’t want […]
Social networking sites, sometimes referred to as “friend-of-a-friend” sites, build upon the concept of traditional social networks where you are connected to new people through people you already know. The purpose of some networking sites may be purely social, allowing users to establish friendships or romantic relationships, while others may focus on establishing business connections.
Chats and direct messages are essential features of platforms like social networks and online gaming service. Their popularity makes them common conduits for social engineering scams, though. Never click suspicious links or give out sensitive information in these exchanges, especially not to people you’ve just met.
Don’t’ over share personal information on social media. Sensitive information includes anything that can help a person steal your identity or ﬁnd you, such as your full name, Social Security number, address, birthdate, phone number, or where you were born.
Most social networks allow you to integrate information with other social networks. For example you can post an update on your Twitter account and have it automatically posted on your Facebook account as well. Be particularly careful when integrating your social network accounts. You may be anonymous on one site, but exposed when using another.
