Infographic: 13% of social media users are identity theft victims

The tension between the monetization of social networks and people’s desire for privacy is something that doesn’t show any signs of resolving… ever. The most valuable thing that social networks have is your information, and this infographic does a good job of vetting out where your information is and how vulnerable we all are because of it.

I’m curious to know your thoughts on this one.
