Are You Safe on Social Media? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Did you know that more than 80 percent of Web-initiated crimes involve a social media platform (especially Facebook and Twitter)? Moreover, 20 percent of active social media adults have complained about being a victim of cybercrime.

These statistics are very unnerving to think about!

Criminals use social media to obtain important information like date of birth, location, background data, and more to target a victim. Burglary, identity theft and sex crimes are some of the major categories of internet criminals.

So the sooner we understand that posting too much personal info on social media is not safe, the sooner we will be able to protect our online activity.

Do you want to know how are criminals using social networking sites? Here's a must-see infographic by InstantCheckMate called Social Media and Crime.
