10 things that we should all know! This short, informative eBook achieves the goal of giving me “a quick leg up” on best practices that keep me and my information safe as I use social media. I recommend “Your Guru Guide, Shockproofing Your Use of Social Media: 10 Things You Should Know” to assess “the size of our digital footprint” and minimize our risk. I am now inspired to do the following: 1) use long passphrases, instead of short passwords; 2) ensure my computer software and hardware are up to date; 3) keep my malware protection up to date; 4) avoid clicking on links in emails, 5) understand and set appropriate privacy settings. I even set up a google alert on my own name. Read the book to get the other 5 things you should know about using social media. This guide gives an appropriate level of information for basics, and provides enough information for the reader to pursue safe online habits.
