If you are keeping up with current events you know that Mark Zuckerberg, chairman and CEO of Facebook, is voluntarily testifying on Capitol Hill this week. Concerns around user privacy and recent data exploits have raised the question, “do we need more monitoring and regulation of these behemoth social media platforms.” With over two billion global users, Facebook creates community experiences and brings people together through an immediate, wide-reaching, 24/7 experience.
In order to fund their giant infrastructure, Facebook’s business model relies on the sale of ad revenue generated by collecting and using the data their users load and share on their platform. That brings forth the debate of how much is too much and should this process be regulated by a governing entity. While we let the powers that be figure all of those pieces out, here are ten things you should think about in order to protect your information while on Facebook or any other social media channel.
It is hard to achieve 100 percent protection but these ten points will give you a great base to stand on while you embark on connecting and sharing on social media platforms or even surfing the Internet in general.
