Have you checked your social media privacy settings lately? If you’re like most people, you’d probably choose going to the dentist over spending a couple of hours with your privacy settings. Don’t put it off any longer. Saturday, January 28 is Data Privacy Day, an international campaign to empower people to protect their privacy and control their digital footprint, as well create awareness about the need for everyone to make the protection of privacy and data a priority

Schedule a few hours on January 28 to work on owning your online presence: set the privacy and security settings on web services and devices to your comfort level for information sharing. Remember, it’s ok to limit how and with whom you share information.
