    Compared to twitter, I think that Facebook is a place where a lot of private information might be shared. Consequently, I understand that they should have a higher level of security.

    One would expect LinkedIn to be higher on this security list, so I am quite surprised by that. I know that Facebook can sometimes make my life difficult when trying to manage my client’s Facebook accounts. However, I figure the security is worthwhile.

    Facebook as having a good security rating doesn’t guarantee a full security because it all depends on the user on how he/she sets his privacy settings as Facebook privacy settings is optional. However, Facebook do have options for individual customization of profile settings, sharing photos, and also for wall posting which signifies a higher level of security against other social networks.

    It’s very important to be careful when using social media. Even though Facebook was given 4 stars, it doesn’t mean that you can be careless. Users should always be aware of what they are sharing and who they are sharing it with. Due to their massive popularity, it’s not surprising that social networking sites are a target for hackers.
