How many social networks are you a member of? How often do you answer questions that request your date of birth, your school, your hometown...questions that may seem innocuous but may also be answers to security questions on other sites. 

This infographic looks at the following social networks: Facebook, Twitter,  Google+, Mixi, Sina Weibo, Tumblr. Linkedin, and Pinterest. It will allow you  to see how each of these sites falls in the areas of: privacy settings, contact details, connections, birth date, employment, location and name.

It also provides information about the potential backlash of providing personal information including identity theft, social engineering, and damaged reputation as well as some statistical information.

To learn more about the risks of sharing information online check out this post, or go directly to the infographic at:

La importancia de reflexionar de manera cuidadosa y crítica sobre los pros y contras del uso de las redes sociales actualmente, es parte de una cibercultura que como sociedad tendremos que afrontar las consecuencias de no poder prevenir a tiempo ni a los usuarios ni a las instancias y organizaciones promotoras de estas herrmientas digitales sociales. Es necesario hacer campañas de difusión masiva para no caer bajo los controles mediáticos de las corporaciones y grupos criminales que pueden hacer mal uso para detectar personas y controlarlas mentalmente hablando.
