Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, SnapChat -- Are you on one of these? Two? Three? Every day, social media platforms are becoming more and more intertwined with our daily lives and work. However, recent developments, such as the Cambridge Analytica Facebook scandal, have prompted a lot of discussions concerning how much social media platforms know about you, how much information they share with others, and who they are sharing that information with.
