Your Social Media Fingerprint — thoughts…

Without your consent most major web platforms leak whether you are logged in. This allows any website to detect on which platforms you’re signed up. Since there are lots of platforms with specific demographics an attacker could reason about your personality, too. https://robinlinus.github.io/socialmedia-leak/

    this is one of the reasons everyone should learn to code in my opinion. even if they only understand an edcuational language, the concepts are enough to provide a solid (practical, not just theoretical) understanding of these issues.

    not everyone that does understand even cares, but we live in a society that really doesnt grasp this stuff. the more that do imo, the better the odds of people appreciating the full implications.
