With so many different avenues having been added to the digital space through the internet, people are starting to become increasingly interested in interacting solely through these digital spaces, thereby creating a vacuum in terms of actual physical interaction. There are pros and cons associated with digital socialization, but one thing that you should definitely keep in mind is that these social media platforms are not quite as safe as you might think they are. Indeed, these platforms have become quite notorious in recent times for being untrustworthy. They get a lot of data from you, and they then use this data to entice advertisers and marketing agencies to place ads on their platforms by using this data to target specific kinds of users according to whatever their preferences might be in this regard.

Now, it’s important to note that these social media platforms are not quite as evil as a lot of people are trying to paint them as. They are companies that are trying to maintain a certain level of profitability that is absolutely essential in our modern world because of the fact that capitalist societies are not going to allow them to be long lasting if they are not making enough profit to make their growth sustainable in any meaningful way.

If you visit tech news sites you will see that data breaches are very common, so you need to figure out what kind of measures you are going to take in order to prevent your own identity from being compromised by someone that has managed to hack into a social media database. There are plenty of applications and programs out there that can be used for this purpose, and many of these programs are quite easy to use as well.
