Just how safe are social media platforms? Social networking companies are known to spend millions of dollars to keep their users protected from hackers on the internet.

With over 2 billion people having at least one account on either Facebook, Instagram, Youtube or Whatsapp, it goes without saying that social media is one of the cyber criminals’ favorite playgrounds they are always looking to exploit. After all, where else would one find such a large database of active internet users?

In fact, it would be shocking to know that over 80 percent of all internet crimes involve some kind of a social media platform. Criminals might use this information as identity theft to carry out various other crimes on the internet.
