INFOGRAPH: Do You Know Who’s Watching You?

A researcher that packaged and posted the information of more than 170 million public Facebook profiles on the internet caused a certain ripple of concern. Nowadays, privacy is an ever growing concern for a lot of people, and they are becoming aware of the importance of privacy and securing their information on the web.

Although people are starting to realize how compromised their information is, they still don’t have the slightest idea of the extent of privacy invasion that they have become complacent to. We have talked extensively on our blog about privacy and tackled various aspects of privacy on the web and how to maintain it, but I found this infograph by Word Stream and it really packages a great deal of information and delivers the right amount of shock for people to start doing something about their privacy.

Enjoy the infograph below…

    Not sure how they got this data, but I think it's common sense to be careful when you post anything online.
    And thanks to you guys and your updates (I've been a subscriber to thoughtpick for sometime now) I have kept up to date with my privacy info on fb and other sites.
    I spose the bottom line is always be mindfull what you post online, but of course there are plenty of innocent people who don't know about this.
