Do you read every single “Terms of Service” you come across before clicking “I Agree” to? If you’re anything like me, the answer is no. In fact, I’ve agreed to hundreds since I first started using AOL 14 years ago, but I haven’t read one. Should we be more careful? I try to align myself with respectable websites — using services that many others use.

And this leaves me with a sort of “someone else will catch it if something’s wrong” mentality. So far (I think) that has worked out okay. But as online industry grows, and we sign up for one social network after the other, we can’t forget that we’re trusting our sensitive information to corporations.

Most TOS include a clause that allows companies to change their TOS whenever they need to. So, in an effort to not be paranoid, but cautious, here’s a list of 8 things to check up on in social media. Who knows? Maybe you’ll be surprised by what you’ve agreed too.
