Last decade Facebook claimed 20 million users and today they are hosting nearly 2 billion users on social media. For comparison’s sake, they are representing about 30% world population on their social media platform.
There are many potential risks for businesses that are new and less understood. Following I’m going to explore three related social media cyber-security facts.
Social media is always attractive to attackers, but they are ways to hedge the attack risks. The most recommended way is to make the best use of privacy setting available on these platforms and get educated on how much you show expose on these networks.
Another argument is that there is no one holding the control of these platforms. You may be able to stop sharing information but quitting does not mean that your previous information or account will go away too.
Finally, we all know that social media bound with improvement in security. But we should not let this calm user into a false sense of full safety. And the end of the day cyber-security risk is the end user’s problem to own.
