How many permissions do you have on your social networks?


I read a great blog post the other day about social network sharing permissions.  It made me think about how many third-party apps we allow permissions on our different networks like Facebook and Twitter.

Connecting accounts this way is convenient.  Think about how often you will use the ‘Login With Your Facebook/Twitter Account’, or accept requests for all the different apps your friends use.  How many games are you playing on Facebook?  Every time you start playing a new game you have to allow that app permission to access your account.

Maybe it’s time to take a look and clean out your permissions.  The more you share permissions, the more you put yourself at risk of identity theft.  To read more on this visit the T3KD blog.
