Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn: Social Networking Security And Privacy [INFOGRAPHIC]

As social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn become an increasingly important part of all of our lives, the information that we choose to share on these channels becomes exponentially significant and ‘risky’, inasmuch as what and how often we choose to share the things we are doing with the rest of the world.

Barracuda Labs surveyed people from 21 countries about their social networking habits and attitudes towards online privacy and security.

Key takeaways:

  • 92% cited security as the most important reason when choosing a social network
  • 54.3% have experienced phishing on social networks
  • 73% think that employees share too much online
