To Post or Not To Post – McAfee Facebook Contest

0
By on Feb 09, 2014

Sharing may be caring, but not everything you do or every picture you take should be posted on social media. McAfee’s 2014 Love, Relationships, and Technology study found that people are oversharing on a global-scale. Aside from sending/receiving intimate and sexual content, more than 38% of respondents admitted to sharing passwords, as well as sharing email accounts, and even bank details with their significant others.

While keeping romantic partners, friends, and family in the loop is great, being aware of what and who has access to your personal information is crucial to online safety. That epic night out drinking with pals may be better off saved in your memories than forever immortalized on your Facebook wall. The Internet is forever, and what feels like a seemingly harmless post now could result in some serious bad buzz down the line.

In the spirit of protecting your online and offline reputation, McAfee will be running a Post It or Delete It contest on Facebook from Monday, February 10th through Friday, February 21st. Two lucky winners will receive a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Tablet with 16GB memory and a 1-year subscription to McAfee LiveSafe™ service. Watch for the contest posts on the McAfee Facebook page throughout the week and always think twice before sharing online and via mobile devices.

Follow the directions below for a chance to win big!
