9 Tips For Keeping Your Internet Use Private

9 Tips For Keeping Your Internet Use Private | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

Many people are concerned about online privacy. And, conversely, many more are not, freely sharing any and everything on their favorite social networks, paying little attention to their mobile app settings, and happily letting Google track each keyword that they search.

It’s easy to get paranoid about all this stuff, but it does pay to be a little careful when using the internet, particularly when it comes to your personal safety. And while Twitter holds pride of place as one of the safest social networks, by taking the time to educate yourself on the security and privacy settings within your profile, being mindful of which third-party apps you allow access to your account and ensuring that you aren’t making it easy for burglars by constantly telling the world when you’re not at home, you can rest assured that you’re doing everything you can to keep your presence safe on Twitter.


This infographic proposes 9 tips for keeping your internet usage private.

Sharing Your Data: Facebook’s Network of Worldwide Affiliates

Sharing Your Data: Facebook’s Network of Worldwide Affiliates | visualizing social media | Scoop.it
This Facebook infographic takes a look at the complex virtual network of affiliates behind the social media platform.

Earlier this week, Facebook’s proposed revisions to its legal agreements with users went into effect. One of the changes means that Facebook can now share your data with its affiliates. But who exactly are Facebook’s affiliates? Research now reveals that the company has at least 67 affiliate companies worldwide, with the results summarized in this infographic.

It has some great information about what Facebook’s legal agreements really mean to members and is a focused story that isn’t trying to overwhelm the reader too much information or distraction.
Lauren Moss's insight:

An interesting visual at the 'rapidly expanding physical footprint of the social network.'

How to Disappear from the Internet [INFOGRAPHIC] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

The amount of information available online has gotten out of hand. Everything about our lives, from where where we went to high school and what we ate for breakfast this morning, can be found on the internet. If you think that's bad, think about children growing up today – their entire lives, from infancy through middle school, are being documented by their parents on Facebook!

Privacy just doesn't exist online anymore; it can take drastic measures to delete ourselves from the internet, but here's a step-by-step guide for those who want to do so...

Be careful what you post on social media. Public means public people!

Iron Dane Richards's comment, September 26, 2013 7:12 AM
Its a shame that we have so much internet identity theft in this digital age. One solution I highly recommend to many of our clients is the use of prepaid debit cards in order to minimize potential loss with like a Walmart, Netspend or Bancorp Prepaid Visa or Mastercard for online purchases and link that even further through a paypal debit card. Our website has links to business cards also http://ironsolutionsgroup.com/business-credit-cards/

How and Why Social Engineering Works [Infographic]

How and Why Social Engineering Works [Infographic] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

For many people in today’s world, being “online” has become a constant status. High-speed internet, smart phones and tablet PC’s have enabled us to stay connected whenever and wherever we are.

Social hackers capitalize on vulnerabilities when it comes to keeping personal details private, and the problem has only seemed to get worse as the digital age has developed.

Techniques as simple as looking over a shoulder as someone enters bank details or passwords are often used, as well as sending out deceiving emails ridden with malware and viruses that can take control of your computer. Hackers pose as a trusted entity in email blasts that utilize mind tricks to get the viewer to click on the link that will trigger the infection of your computer.

Everyone with an internet connection is vulnerable, and public awareness is the first step in ending this growing problem...
