Social media is a great tool to keep us close to the people we love, especially during this pandemic. However, oversharing things on the internet can be quite dangerous! And sometimes, we don't even know we are sharing our information.

It seems like apps are always updating and adding new elements, and it can be really hard to keep up! According to Totally The Bomb website, Facebook’s recently updated its terms of use, making it easier for the app to track everything you are doing on your phone - even if you closed your Facebook app!
