The Dangers of Social Networks

Facebook is well known to be over the 1 Billion threshold in terms of users, Youtube is understood to be well over the 800 Million users threshold when it comes to its regular users. Twitter and Linked In well over 200 Million. Well it simply means Social Networks are here to stay.

It is actually somewhat funny to think that some people at some point thought they are just a fad. As time continues to unveil their solidified presence as more and more new ones come on the scene. I have lost count of how many invites I get per month from different people wanting me to join them on a new Social Network, please!

I have already too much at the moment just being on the main ones, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and P interest, I am not on Instagram, neither am I on that one and the other one! Bottom line is the world has changed in a big way.

With new opportunities comes new threats, dangers or hazards. Whilst many people have really entrenched themselves in Social Media, not many people have looked at the dangers that come with Social Networks. Of course no one denies they are a marketer's darling as many have a well defined audience and demographics.

To the average person things like identity theft, they will always 'happen to someone else'. However, cases of identity theft are on the rise. Not only that, but complicated cases of hacking are occurring. Just before Easter I got an email from a friend asking for money. This friend was pleading her case all the way from London. I was shocked because she never told me she was going to London last time we had spoken, this was only a few days prior. It was so convincing and it had come using her email address and all was in order.

Upon ringing the friend, I discovered that she was in town and had received such inquiries from her other friends. It was actually a malicious software that was used to hack into her email address book and send emails to everyone on the list asking for money. How this was done, I have no clue. However, I can say she is not the only one. Many other people have since faced the same dilemma.

Then also there are cases of people who are known to be straight but on Facebook they are on private groups as something or someone else. A few have made mistakes and the families did find out 'what they were not meant to find out' in that way. What about other dangers people are ignoring and what can people do to minimise such associated risks. Do you know where your photos are potentially ending up?
