How to protect pages on social networking

You should never post on social networks regardless of the settings

Your security :

1) The birthday

The problem is that the birthday is one of the few data

need someone to steal your password or our identity . If

possible, not to mention any date.

2) The status of our relationship

Whether you have a relationship or not , it is not always the best idea to publish . You

to trigger a disruptive users , even shifty us

bombard with messages .

Such irritation can usually be treated with block or reference

user , but in case he knows enough about the things you

complicated .

There are few cases where the stalker, « Hunters ” ie , have reached the end

users closer to social networks and even face-to-

person .

The best thing you can do is to completely ignore the relationship status ,

order to prevent any kind of disturbance.

3) On our site

Many users of social networking site use quite often

service geotagging social network to publish their

their location in status and their messages , photos and of course through

of check-in.

The problem here is that the recipient of this information is not only friends

us , but possibly cunning , who will not be jealous . knowing

the location and possibly how long we are there and how will we get

return , there is some possibility to exploit the situation . several

times in the past, users who are regularly published by a holiday

victim of burglary .

Instead of ” upload ” photos from our mobile and call all over the Internet

how nice we go on vacation , it would be the safest to use

Text messaging and publish the photos after returning home .

4 ) The fact that we are alone at home

Especially for young children, who tend to ‘ advertise ‘ such events

their friends (and simultaneously over the Internet ) such tactics can

dangerous. The reasons are obvious and more or less the same as the two

previous data .

This issue indeed one of the major reasons that parents should

to proactively monitor mounts their children on the internet , but also to

care to inform them of the potential risks .

Obviously, the same can be true for teenagers or even adults .

5) Photos and names of children , relatives and friends

The vast majority of parents on social networks publish photographs of

children together with the name and date of birth . In many cases this

done before sooner return from hospital . simultaneously publish

photos of family and friends making «tag» their names without prior

obtain their consent .

This may cause two kinds of problems . First, using these

information , even if it’s just a name , the stackers can more easily

approach you or even your kids , pretending to be some known

friends or relatives.

Besides, there is still the issue of using these photographs as individuals

shown may not want to publish on the internet , especially if

photos include their name .

We can get the permission of relatives or friends for publishing, without of course

make them «tag» by name .
