Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest – Are You Sharing Too Much Online? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Are you sharing too much online?

Social media has empowered users to connect with friends and family, demand better products and customer service from brands and change the world, but as we become more comfortable with these tools we are exponentially relaxing any initial concerns we might have had with security.

Namely, as platforms such as Twitter and Facebook become an everyday part of our lives, sharing otherwise private information about ourselves to these channels becomes the norm which, in some cases, can be hazardous.

It pays to remember that with social media you’re always on camera, and anything you say or do can – and, unfortunately, often will – be used against you.

This infographic from Trend Micro takes a closer look at the risks of posting too much information (TMI) to social networks.
