Instagram is a fun way to explore your creative side while taking photos and sharing them with friends. At the same time, it is a good platform to spread and deliver your photos to unknown people you choose to add to your circle of friends or, by using the hashtag option, you can make them accessible to people from all over the world.
We take our social media knowledge for granted and because of this, we usually have no fears on our security or privacy.
Before we present the options offered by the Instagram account, we need to mention a few common sense rules we all need to follow by answering some simple questions:
Since your friends already know who you are, why should you use your real name? And do you really need to expose your location, your school name or your work place?
For this reason, before we post a new photo on Instagram or let our children use this social media network, we should know what security and privacy options are available to us and how we can use them in order to increase our online protection.

Twenty percent of the world’s population is “on” Facebook—that’s well over a billion people.
Top 10 Most Popular Facebook Scams
- Profile visitor stats. It’s all about vanity. It doesn’t take long for any new Facebook user to see an ad offering to reveal how many people are viewing your profile. You can even find out who’s viewing. It must make a lot of FB users feel validated to know how many people are viewing them and just whom, because this scam comes in at the top.Is it really that important to know how many people are viewing your profile? Even if your self-worth depends on this information, Facebook can’t provide it. These ads are scams by hackers.
- Rihanna sex tape. What a sorry life someone must be leading to be lured into clicking a link that promises a video of a recording star having sex. Don’t click on any Rihanna sex tape link, because the only intimacy you’ll ultimately witness is a hacker getting into your computer
- Change your profile color. Don’t click on anything that relates to changing your FB profile color. Facebook is blue. Get over it. You’ll never get red, purple, pink, black, grey, white, red, orange or brownish-magenta. Forget it. Deal. If you see this offering in your news feed, ignore it. It’s a scam.
- Free Facebook tee shirt. Though this offering seems quite innocuous, anyone who never rushes to click things will realize that this can’t possibly be legitimate. Do you realize how much a billion tee shirts cost? Even if you don’t know that one-fifth the world’s population uses Facebook, you should know that an enormous number of people use it and they aren’t getting a t-shirt.a. Where would Facebook get the money to 1) produce all those tee shirts (even if one-tenth of FB users wanted one, that’s still a LOT of money), and 2) mail the shirts out, and 3) pay reams of people to package the shirts and address the packages? People, THINK before you click! See your top 10 Facebook stalkers. This is just so funny, how can anyone take it seriously and be lured into clicking it?

- Free giveaways. It’s cliché time: Nothing’s free in this world—certainly not on Facebook. End of story.
- See if a friend has deleted you. This, too, sounds suspicious. And besides, is it really that important if a “friend” has deleted you? Do you even personally know every individual who has ever friended you? This feature does not exist. You’re better off pretending that nobody would ever want to delete you because you’re so special! But actually, there are plug-ins available that perform this function, but still, stay away.
- Find out who viewed your profile. Again, here’s a scam that works well on people who have too much time on their hands. This function doesn’t exist on Facebook.
- Just changed my Facebook theme and it’s rad! Ignore this at all costs.
- Tragedy of the day. Whenever there is something horrific going on such as Mother Nature getting all murderous or some man made disaster or even a celebrity dying, you can be sure Facebook scammers are on top of the breaking news with a “video” or “photo” that simply isn’t. Just don’t click it.

2. All of a sudden, it struck my mind, does being a private investigator qualify me to be in this group of blessed people? If it is, I’m grateful that I have such a noble job and for that whatever the price that I need to pay to be a good and blessed private investigator, all the obstacles and challenges along the way will be the one that are worth facing.
3. To those who has been in the industry and to those who is considering this profession as their career, if you are a Muslim, be steadfast, guided by integrity and principles, also always remind yourself that everything that you do to search for truth and justice, one thing for sure is you’ll be rewarded if not in this life, it will in the life after.

Terrorist attacks follow a distinct process referred to as the Terrorist Attack Cycle. The terrorist attack cycle includes: Target selection, planning, deployment, escape and exploitation.
