Twitter and Facebook- are you playing safe?-- Part2

This is the part 2 of playing safe on Twitter and Facebook. If you have followed those two golden rules of not revealing your personal information and also working on your security features then you are almost safe! Are you surprised because I used the word almost and not complete? This is because you can still be attacked and your security still be at risk. I shall quote a classic example of how your security could be threatened. I am sure that all of you must have heard of the tiny urls. They are usually un ambiguous and one does not have any idea about the site from the tiny url. Facebook provides the option, by using which the exact url is known and also the details about site given. But are we patient enough to use this option? The answer is a big no and we end up at sites where we would never visit.

So the second part of the lesson is being patient while on social networking sites. I am not suggesting that you need to be over cautious but be cautious to a certain extent. So just follow these tips to be safe and to keep away from troubles!
