The world-wide web can be a scary place if you don't take action to protect your personal information.
Dakota State University instructor Josh Stroschein says one of the biggest changes we've seen in social media since it began is privacy controls. He says it’s important to make sure you understand privacy settings and how to set them.
Stroschein suggests testing your setting. He says, to do so, log out of your account, search for yourself and see what information turns up.
“It's good every once and a while to go out and see what kind of content exists about you. Taking some time and using those major search engines, Google and Yahoo and Bing, and just seeing what comes up when you search your name,” Stroschein said.
