There are 98 Facebook application developers which is able to access my personal data. 24 of them can post on my Twitter feed, 4 others are able to connect to my gmail account and rest of two could access my LinkedIn profile. Worse… I’ve just realized it! How about you?
Privacy is a thing we need to be protected, especially in rapid social media era. It’s true there are some benefits we got from Social Media, Facebook for example. But there are some parties took benefit by accessing our personal data, one of them through various application we use. As an example, there are so many Facebook application we follow, in fact has permission to access our personal data. Data like occupation, age, status, location where we lived, etc can be accessed through those applications.
We often “allow” permission of an application when we need it, the bad thing, we forgot to remove that application when we don’t need it anymore! There are so many reasons, one of them is because we don’t know how to erase it.
