Is Facebook the Most Secure Platform in Social Network Vacuum [INFOGRAPHIC]By Aarzu Khan on June 19, 2011
The privacy and security have been the blazing concern for all social media users. Social media giant Facebook has been criticized at several occasions for mishandling millions of users’ data which has tagged it as one of the most unsafe platform for all online users. However, a competitive analysis, along with other social network platforms like LinkedIn, Twitter, MySpace, exposes real treats and their level that imprints Facebook the most secure social networking site.
Unlike Twitter or LinkedIn, Facebook has witnessed the explosive growth in last couple of years, be it number of users or system features. This has made Facebook to roll out “customizable” security-settings with “default level”. Interestingly, users on Facebook remain so engaged with networking acts; they never bother to pay attention towards such aspect. If users make a little effort to adjust the level of such setting they can form a highest level of secure vacuüm while playing in social media arena.
Such flexibility has not being offered by any other social network platform including Twitter and LinkedIn. Twitter offers restrictive security: everything you say is public or completely protected. And if you choose to stay protected over Twitter, you will kill the connotation of service which makes people to shout loud, tweet in public and re-tweet more and more.
