What Paul Tracey can say in an interview on
Cyber Security Issues Revolving Around Social Media:

    • Facebook and Instagram have proven that your data when feed to algorithms can not only predict but also change behavior and that can be weaponized.
    • Facebook algorithms can manipulate behavior in order to increase ad revenue the same can be done for more malicious reasons.

    • The public does not generally understand what data is collected and how that data can be used against them.
    • In the same way that companies use Facebook to advertise, hackers create fake Facebook groups and users and run ads to utilize facebooks algorithms to steal data, money, and identities.

Solutions

    • We need to educate the public on what data is actually collected from their seemingly short and insignificant visits to Facebook and how it can be used.
    • Choose carefully what apps you use and data you submit to social platforms in the form of clicks, likes, and comments. Just like in court: anything you say can and will be used against you. Control and monitor your app usage.
    • Never submit more personal data to your profile than necessary to open the account. Never allow access to other applications such as bank accounts.
