Social Media Day: 5 Dangerous Habits You Must Quit

Stop being too public, take privacy seriously:

Sharing everything with everybody is not a clever thing to do. All social media sites give the option to
limit post viewing to specific audiences. Take the time to explore these settings, try different options to
suit the best privacy setting.

Stop being ‘friends’ with everyone:

Make sure you know the people you add on social media, in real life if possible. Don’t hesitate to use the
“block” feature when the situation seems to call for it.

Stop being too personal:

Keep as much of your profile private as you can and think twice before posting every aspect of your life

Stop being logged-on always on PC:

If you are using a public computer, make it a ritual to log out—and log out of private devices
from time to time as well. Logging out helps ensure that other people won’t snoop your social
media profile

Stop using common passwords for all social media platforms:

It’s a pain, but it is also absolutely essential that you don’t use the same password for Twitter as you do
for, say, Facebook, Instagram and other social media websites. When you use one password for multiple
services, you’re only as safe as the least secure service you use.
