8 in 10 young people know someone who overshares online, so we conducted a social experiment to see if this is true.
We got customers to like a restaurant’s Facebook page for a 25% discount using their Facebook profiles, our fraudster was able to gain access into their private lives.
Think about the information you are sharing, so it doesn’t fall into the wrong hands and check your privacy settings.
