Check Your Social Media
According to Pew Research
Center, people are lacking confidence in how social media sites
protect their personal data. TDS Telecom (TDS®) is encouraging
customers to review their social media privacy settings following
several social media sites recently changing their privacy policies
to track user data or make data more visible.
continually express concern about internet privacy,” said DeAnne
Boegli, national public relations manager at TDS Telecom. “One of
the best ways they can protect their privacy is to consistently
check and update privacy settings on all social media sites.”
Social media channels,
including Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, regularly update their
settings and notify customers. It is then up to customers to read
the notices and take steps to protect their privacy. For example,
Twitter recently changed its privacy settings for all users —
automatically. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Twitter
made the announcement with a screen overlay describing how the
changes would make Twitter “more relevant” by connecting “your
visits to (other) sites with Twitter content.”
Any Twitter user who
simply clicked “sounds good,” was also agreeing to the changes. The
reason for the change, Twitter can now track user locations and the
sites they visit and, in turn, be in a better position to send
targeted advertising. To manage what the site can track, users
should review settings / privacy and safety / personalization and
LinkedIn also updated
their privacy settings this summer. The changes make user profiles
more visible. While the settings were changed for all, members can
easily turn them off in their profile settings.
TDS also encourages
customers to be cautious when engaging in online activities that can
allow access to your data, such as taking Facebook quizzes with
automatically-generated results. For example, when you “login with
Facebook” to take a quiz, you are granting the site access to your
personal profile. Facebook users can view and remove which sites
have access to their profiles. The permissions can be found under
Settings / Apps.
“Always watch for
messages from social media sites, especially ones concerning privacy
settings. Don’t disregard them until you fully understand what you
are agreeing to or what is changing,” said Boegli
