On this Social Media Day –
Today everyone use Social Media as a great way to stay connected, but with the Boon it also comes with Banes. Today People do really illogical or silly things to grab Media or People’s attention. The risks of oversharing on social media are simply way more than what meets the eye.
There are many but today we have noted out few habits which we should quit. Quitting these will help you avoiding cyber-bullying, identity theft or simply getting trolled.
Don’t Care about Being Public? Think Twice & Take Privacy Seriously
Sharing everything with everybody is not a clever thing to do. All social media sites give the option to limit post viewing to specific audiences. Take the time to explore these settings, try different options to suit the best privacy setting. For instance, both Facebook and Twitter let you create custom lists of people who are allowed to view specific posts.
As you get better at using the privacy settings, bear in mind that not all privacy settings “translate” between websites.
Don’t Log Out from Social Media on Every PC? Or are you Always Logged On? Think Before Doing it.
If you are using a public computer, make it a ritual to log out—and log out of private devices from time to time as well. Logging out helps ensure that other people won’t snoop your social media profile and use it to attack your friends.
So change your personal information to embarrassing or slanderous comments, or worse, change your password and lock you out of your own account entirely.
Using Same Password? Think and use random as well as Strong Passwords
It’s a pain, but it is also absolutely essential that you don’t use the same password for Twitter as you do for, say, Facebook, Instagram and other social media websites. Using a single password makes it easy for hackers, as gaining access to one means gaining access to all – and imagine how painful it will be when you find you’re locked out of your entire online life.
When you use one password for multiple services, you’re only as safe as the least secure service you use.
