Privacy for social media


With the ever expanding social media outlets, people are spending more and more time online. Updating status, posting photos and chatting with friends is very common. Along with making your lives easy, social media is risky also in terms of privacy.


There are many people who are very careful regarding their privacy online. Going to a recent survey by the Pew Center Internet and American Life Project, young people are much more concerned regarding their privacy online. They want to protect their online identities in their online communities. As per Pew, this difference in behavior of social media user groups has been developing for a number of years.

Basically, these social media and privacy are two different terms. Tweet a pic of you and your colleagues or posting negative comments regarding your neighborhood is not private at all as you are posting this on the web. Companies running social media platforms are fully aware of the concern of their users and thus, modifying their privacy approaches accordingly. This is to maintain balance between those who want information and those who desire for privacy. At Webroot, you can find the comparison between privacy practices of Google+ and Facebook. It highlights the strengths and weaknesses of each platform.
