The risks from Tweeting and Social Media, from a potential stalker using free open source software !
Genuine case studies will be discussed.
The aim of this work was to determine how much information could be obtained about an individual using only social networking sites and a number of freely available tools. The results were: home address, pictures of the individual, their friends and family, and most worrying of all, their routine daily movements. Most teenagers have a “profile” on a number of social networking sites, such as Facebook or Twitter, and use them without realizing how much they are revealing about themselves.
