Facebook Security

Facebook security has been questioned constantly over the past couple of months and they’re doing nothing to increase our confidence. Facebook has done little to make the consumer feel better about how they’re handling our data. Why is that?┬áIs it because we don’t care or have we become oblivious to security issues?

Facebook breach saw 15M users’ names & contact info stolen, 14M’s bios too

In the past month, they’ve announced another breach and new products that will continue to capture sensitive information from our accounts.

I don’t know about you, but I’m very concerned about Facebook security. They’ve not shown me how they intend to ensure my data is private and inaccessible to hackers and malcontents.

When asked about this the response has included dodges and justifications for collecting and sharing that data.

So what should you do?

Since Facebook security is clearly a misnomer, we as consumers need to be more careful about what we share on social media. While it does make it easier to connect with our friends, sharing personal information needs to be handled judiciously.

  • Avoid sharing credit card information
  • Keep personal information to a minimum – Do you really need to add your complete address?
  • Why do you need to check-in – Why make it easy for a thief to know when you’re home and target you

Just remember, Facebook security is not all about Facebook or any other social media service for that matter. Security should be a key part of everything we do online.
