Facebook, Twitter, Instagram - How Public is Your Private Information? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Sharing to social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram is a lot of fun, but do you ever stop to think about the little pieces of your identity that you’re giving away online?

Consider a simple tweet, for example. Those 140 characters or less contain information on your name and possibly your location, as well as insights into your interests and opinions, political views, photographs, and more.

And it’s not just Twitter. Every social platform we use pulls in data from all of us (both willingly and otherwise) constantly, which collectively can be used to piece together a pretty accurate profile of who you are, what you do and what you like.
