Stop Sharing Details From Your Personal History on Facebook

If the last few weeks of Facebook scandals have revealed anything, it’s that the social network already knows way too much about us. But in case you needed another reason to stop giving Facebook your personal info here’s a good one: it could get your online accounts hacked.

A recent post from Krebs on Security points out that Facebook is full of popular pages asking for the type of information typically used in security questions to protect your account. Seemingly innocuous status updates asking for details on your first pet or the street you grew up on may seem like fun, but there’s a decent chance that same information is keeping your online identity safe from hackers.
