According to <a href=”http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/magazine-archive/2011/june/electronics-computers/state-of-the-net/online-exposure/index.htm”>Consumer Reports</a> at least five million families experienced some form of Internet Crime on Facebook in the last year. These crimes ranged from identity theft, malicious viruses and the worst seems to revolve around cyber bullying.

– 30% of those surveyed used or stored sensitive personal information on their un-secured mobile/smart phones.

– 34% give their full birth dates on Facebook

– 21% with children at home, post their names and birth dates which can lead to kidnapping and stolen identities
