Apple, Facebook, Zendesk, Twitter - Was Your Data Compromised In 2013? [INFOGRAPHIC]

2013 was a great year for social media, but a lousy year for digital privacy – certainly if the large number of serious data breaches of some of the most widely used services on the web are used as a measure.

This visual from Who Is Hosting This? takes a closer look at some of the biggest security breaches of 2013.
