Is our security at risk when using social networking sites, like Facebook?
Why did I choose this theme?
I chose this theme because I think, nowadays, we use the internet in huge amounts and sometimes we don’t know the risk we put ourselves in.
For instance, Facebook, is one of the most used social networking sites in the world, and frequently people add very privateinformation, which can be seen by everyone added in their “friends” lists, forgetting that any hacker could get into our account.
Frequently people forget the reason why they open their facebook’s account, and reveal things that aren’t congruent with their main goal, for example, if you open your facebook account so you can be in touch with your family, and friends, then you should only add yourfamily and close friends; But if you want your facebook account to be sort of a business card, then you shouldn’t publish anything about your private life, and this is one of the reasons why social networking is dangerous.
Moreover, when we publish pictures, and show about our trips and way of living, we’re showing private information, which is very dangerous since anyone could see what kind ofperson you are, or how much you possess.
In conclusion, Ithink internet is very useful but we have to learn how to use it, and be careful with what we do with it.
