Facebook has over a billion active users and a reported 700,000 new people joining the social networking website every day. But how carefully do Facebook users consider their online privacy?
With Facebook settings changing ever-frequently, users are increasingly frustrated (and confused) about their privacy. In a Naked Security poll, 93% of Facebook users
would prefer Facebook's privacy options to be opt-in rather than opt-out. That said, we found that:
- 46% of Facebook users accepted friend requests from strangers
- 89% of users in their 20s divulged their full birthday
- Nearly 100% of users post their email address
- Between 30-40% of users list data about their family and friends
Identity thieves can use this information to commit crimes against individuals and their companies. Read our tips for better security on Facebook
to secure your personal data and avoid identity theft.
