Where'd They Get That Info?

Is it really social media that's taking your information?

The Basics

Social Media has been popular since the late 1970's. Some of the first popular websites were myspace, four degrees of separation, and the bulletin board system. As social media has advanced, the privacy awareness has also had to advance. Agreeing to Social Media's privacy policy means that you are completely fine with anyone having access to whatever you post. Only 37% of people in America actually read and follow the rules and guidelines of the privacy policy they agree to when signing up for an account. There has been 97 different lawsuits agains different social media websites that all lead back to the user being irresponsible. With age comes responsibility and so by being the correct age to have an account, you are expected to have responsibility for what you post and own up to what your post says about you.
