OPC publishes tips to help Canadians stay safe on social media

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada has published advice for Canadians on how to protect privacy while using social media

Social media can be a powerful tool to help you connect with friends and family, share your interests with others, or get the latest news. But social media can also put your safety at risk because you are sharing personal information online.
