How Social Media Tracks Every Move You Make [INFOGRAPHIC]

Are people too open, and too casual with the information about their personal lives that they share on social media channels such as Twitter and Facebook?

Perhaps. After all, many of us willingly share details about everything from trivial things like what we are eating and the television programs that we are watching, to more security-threatening updates such as where we are, who we are with and where we are going.

A slightly alarming number of people include their location information with every post that they make – and if you’re with them when they do this, it’s not just their personal safety that’s at stake.

Using data gathered data from Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project, Visible Technologies created this eye-opening infographic which just might make you think twice about what and how much you share online.
