So, I am seeing folks posting about accounts being hacked like Twitter or Facebook but not SPN.
The larger the attack surface, the greater the chance of being attacked.
I used to have multiple social media accounts but found they really didn’t serve me in the greater scheme of things.
I shut every one of them down and even hibernated LI for a time.
I regrouped, thought about why am I really on social media? Business only. I don’t need a date___I’m married….I don’t need a dog____have one….I don’t need to elevate family____we are pretty private.
So what do I need? What I already have on LinkedIn and SPN.
Is my life more simple? Yes
Do I feel more secure? Yes
Do I have fewer passwords? Yes
Is my life better for it? Yes
Am I advocating no SM outside LI? No, personal choice
Folks that either read my posts (ha ha, a handful) or know me personally, are aware I am a combative martial artist.
In combative martial arts, we are taught to present a smaller target to the opponent. How? Turning sideways for one as that protects from frontal assault against your chest, groin, throat, and so on.
In the world of hackers, I also want to present a smaller target hence my social media profile or digital footprint is smaller than many others. My choice___my body___my peace of mind. Your mileage will differ and that is great. If you love to tweet, be a bird. If you love to show the world where your family will be Saturday night, be a book.
Me, I choose to be a comma or a period in life.
