We’ve realized we’re all fighting yesterday’s privacy battle. For years our personal information was stored on our personal computers. We got used to thinking that protecting your personal information means protecting your computer.
In reality we all spent the last years gradually moving our personal information to the web: Our photos, documents, location, contacts, e-mail, work history and business relations, political and religious affiliations, our very thoughts… It’s all on the web!
Privacy is no longer about protecting your personal computer! It’s about controlling who has permissions to access your personal information on the web.
Many of these resources are taken from Deltina Hay’s critically acclaimed book, The Social Media Survival Guide, already in its second edition, or from her online social media class on Udemy. Learn more about Deltina and our services at Plumb Web Solutions.
