Protect your privacy and stay secure when using social media sites and apps. Before you post, tweet, or share, pay attention to privacy by following some simple guidelines. For example, strive to “undershare” (rather than overshare), avoid sharing your location, and be aware that anonymous doesn’t mean untraceable. These tips and more are on the Social Media Privacy page of Safe ComputingIn addition to a variety of tips for protecting yourself online, the page includes links to information about protecting yourself from trolls, bullies, and online harassment by blocking accounts on Twitter or Facebook.
