Social Media leaking sensitive information, something to think about?

This is why I don’t use social media. Yes, I have my twitter, facebook, and even Linked in and they’re nice services. But I don’t hardly post much except for articles like this one and others I am going to read anyway, and even post to this blog when time allows.

Social Media is supposed to be used for sharing information, and they’d love you to share information about your life. According to Phishlabs, they wrote:

Threat actors are using social media accounts to expose and sell data that has been compromised. While information found on many of these platforms has
traditionally been disclosed by enterprises and individuals with intent, cyber criminals are taking information acquired by means of scams and data breaches
and promoting their sale on various social platforms not always monitored by security teams.  

This is the beginning of a very interesting article thats out about how Social Media information can be used for bad. There are bad actors, and I’ve changed the way I use social media, maybe its time to really think about whether its really worth it. According to this article, 1 million sensitive records were leaked last month alone due to breaches. If thats not enough, I don’t know what is.

Social Media Platforms Latest Channels used to Leak Sensitive Data is the article and its a discussion point to have for sure. Thoughts?
