Is Your Social Media Spying on You? How to Protect Yourself (and Still Find People)
Facebook’s invasion of privacy is unfolding to the knowledge of the public. People are starting to realize how their information and lives have been exploited for financial gain and dishonesty. Social media platforms and applications are seamlessly connected and are storing all of the information on your smartphone. That makes it easier than ever to find out more about people in your life, and for people to find you. Here’s how you can turn the tables on social media by taking advantage of an online public records search.
Social Media Gets Its Power from You
It’s crazy how much information Facebook has about you just from having you download its app. For Facebook to run on your smartphone, you have to allow it access to things like contact lists, your camera, your microphone, and other storage on your device. You know how your phone’s photo slideshow pops up when you select to upload a photo? You’ve given Facebook access to your internal phone data. And that doesn’t mean they can only see those things when you choose to open them. Do you like using the geotag when you post to Instagram so everyone can know what cool place you went to? Your settings in Facebook allow for that location tracking, meaning they always know where you are. Does that seem creepy enough? There’s more.
Facebook also has access to your text messages, your calendar, and your email. The company will take your interests and likes and sell them to ad companies who will use the Facebook algorithm to sell you things based on them. Is there any way to protect yourself from this technologically terrifying and defenseless form of an invasion of privacy?
The answer’s pretty simple. Stop using Facebook.
Keep Your Online Information Simple
Social media is overwhelming, causes anxiety, low self-esteem, disrupts normal human interaction and healthy social skills, and even affects our sleep.
