Social Media Aggregators


Social Media Aggregators

Your private information is being collected and sold. You may be shocked to see what information can be found about yourself on the Internet. Some of these are from obvious sources like public records. But times have changed and now these data aggregators compile all searchable data on the internet and match it to names, addresses, and birthdates.

The information can include any social media post, any website, and even information that may no longer exist on an active website. This highlights the unforgiving and permanent nature of the Internet.

Much of the data is now coming from Facebook and this is where it becomes dangerous since most people don't realize that their activities on Facebook can be shown to employers, inusrance companies, organizations and the government.

Examples of Social Media Aggregators are Spokeo, Intellius, Axciom, People Finders, BeenVerified.

Some of these sites have opt-out options which you should utilize. Some make opting out extrenely dangerous such as Intellius. This company is the worst. They actually reqiure you to give MORE data (via a driver's license) before they let you opt out.

Opting out is not a one time affair. You need to regularly scour the Internet for your data and repeatedly opt out from perhaps a dozen of these social media aggregator sites. It is quite a project to do.
