If you have been watching the news recently, you are probably aware of the user privacy issues Facebook is experiencing. Facebook users who took certain online quizzes had their personal user data improperly shared according to Facebook. Facebook, along with other social media websites, collect large amounts of data from their users, creating a vast knowledge base that can be used for a multitude of purposes.

This improper sharing of personal user data is a great reminder to be aware of what you share on social media. While social media websites are a great way to communicate with colleagues, family, and friends, along with being a great platform to advertise your business, it can definitely have it drawbacks. Keep your personal accounts separate from your business accounts. Only perform business actions from your business accounts. Be aware of what data you are sharing.
