Five tips that will help you stay safe in social media:
Be cautious and selective when accepting new requests. Do you really know if the profile of the requester is real and not a fake one?
Manage your privacy settings. Make sure you only share information with people in your network. Also, check the settings regularly in case there are any changes.
Don’t give out personal information. Be suspicious of anyone who asks you for your personal information online. Never share your Social Security number, or other information that may be used to identify you.
Change your passwords frequently. Choose a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols. Make sure you change your passwords regularly and use different passwords for each account.
Close old accounts that you don’t use anymore. Don’t risk leaving personal data in an old account. Close the accounts that you don’t use and delete as much personal information from them as possible.
Social networking is meant to be fun so don’t let criminals spoil it for you. Stay safe online!
