Tip: Low-risk Sharing

The following list will give you an idea of how secure various online systems are, from more secure to least secure:

  • Email
  • Skype
  • Password-protected photo/video sharing service
  • Facebook with strong/group privacy settings
  • YouTube with password protection
  • Flickr with password protection
  • Facebook (open)
  • Twitter
  • Pinterest
  • YouTube

Bear in mind that no system is 100% secure. You should still be aware of exactly what you’re sharing, and how.
