A Survey On Security Issues & Concerns To Social Networks

Kiran Malagi, Akshata Angadi, Karuna Gull

Social networking sites are websites designed for human interaction. Online social networks are now used by hundreds of millions of people and have become a major platform for communication and interaction between users. Under the gentle encouragement of social networking services like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google, Yahoo, the right to privacy is being devalued with no questions asked as to how it affects our security and freedom. Even though the use of social network web sites and applications are increasing day by day but users are not aware of the risks associated with uploading sensitive information. In addition to giving anyone the power to disseminate commercially sensitive information, social media also gives the same power to spread false information. Due to the sensitivity of information stored within social networking sites a plethora of research in the area of information security has been raised. This paper will help to look at some of these risks and identify possible solutions to protect your personal information and your company data.
