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.

Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Zendesk and, yep, Twitter, all suffered security breaches last year, albeit to differing degrees. Twitter’s exploiters compromised just 250,000 accounts, while Evernote’s hack impacted 50 million users.

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