In the fast-paced world we live in today, it is no surprise social media has its own day of recognition. On June 30, people around the world celebrate the impact social media has made on society.
Not only is social media used as a way to connect with family and friends, but is a tool businesses use to market its brand and network with consumers and other businesses. In honor of Mashable’s sixth annual Social Media Day, your BBB has helpful tips to keep you safe online.
Check your privacy settings and limit your profile to be viewed by only the people you trust and know.
Be careful when entering sensitive information like credit card numbers and don’t overshare.
Think twice before posting vacation plans or other personal information, as scammers and thieves could take advantage while you are away.
Keep in mind that what is posted on the Internet stays on the Internet. Always ask yourself if what you are posting should be seen by your boss or a future boss.
