Back in 2012, something creepy happened. A dear friend of mine had one of her social media accounts hacked and it completely crushed her. Long story short, her message board was constantly flooded with disturbingly intimate details about her life. While everything was okay in the end, she was never the same. How could we blame her? She was humiliated.

It happened a while back, so I can only remember bits and pieces. There are, however, two things that I’m aware of: it didn’t end well and till this day, we have no idea who the culprit was behind this utterly odious crime.

The Bad News: crooks like him-slash-her aren’t stopping. The Good News: there is one way for us to combat this knotty issue.

Thanks to the brilliant folks at Who Is Hosting, this insanely insightful infographic teaches you everything you need to know about removing private photos (knock on wood) on any social media platform, lest you fall victim to having them posted without your consent.

Stay safe, everyone!
