Social Media Privacy Issues
Social Media
Social networks allow you to build connections and relationships with old friends and families.

What are some different types of social media/ networks?

From a teen survey on what they share in social media here are the statistics:
91% post photo of themselves
71% post their school name
71% post their city or town where they live
20% post their cell phone number
Lots of people find that the single access sign in on technology have no privacy attached so they find it a threat. They also find it helpful to only have to log-in once but their is no privacy that way.
Social Media Privacy Issues
Amy Cheong, an Australian living in Singapore, her position as the assistant director of membership at the National Trade Union Congress was in jeopardy from recieving threats after publishing a Facebook post attacking Malaysian weddings. Her comment was reportedly posted to her own Facebook profile out of frustration as a Malay wedding in the basement of her apartment complex that was keeping Cheong from falling asleep, but many took her comment to be racist. Cheong was born in the capital of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, and moved to Australia at the age of eight before moving to Singapore for work. She was fired because of her post.

Think before you POST!

Real life story
know your friends/ connections
-don't add someone as a friend just because they added you.

Always log out of your social media websites
-especially true when you are on a public library or hotel computer

Use strong password
-use a long password
-use special characters (capital letters, numbers, or symbols)
-Don't use the same password everywhere, especially if its an easy password.

Use an internet security software
-get an anti-virus software that helps to keep your identity safe.

keep your personal information private
-don't put your address. If you want to put something, put a general area you live.

Set strict privacy settings
-don't make your birthday, current location, workplace on public, put your personal information on
private or so that only your close friends can see it.

Never tag or post your current location
-this only makes you and your home vulnerable
