Lately, I’ve noticed websites displaying multiple options for posting articles on their sites. Some allow you to enter your Twitter/google or other account information to post. Doing so may not be a good idea. Most users are totally unaware their social media username and password are visible to the site they are on. Consider this; Would you give someone your bank information so they can get your current account balance? I hope certainly hope not.
To be fair, some of these sites are legitimate and are using your information as advertised. Others however may have a different agenda in mind. So keep that in mind next time you’re asked for your social network information. Think twice before handing it out.
