This infographic entitled 'It's Not Paranoia: The Internet Knows More than you Think' shows people's paranoia over internet privacy may be well-founded. The statistics come from the Huffington Post and visual.ly, while the graphics were designed by Wond.

Privacy means different things to different social media platforms. Often people post things publicly when they shouldn't, such as their full birth date, relationship status, current location and if they're home alone. This is especially the case on Facebook.

Apps such as Foursquare also frequently want to know one's current location, so it's important to be vigilant with settings here as well. While many marketers and companies want to know where you are to make money, it could be accessed by cyber hackers.
