Did you know that 25% of Facebook users don’t bother with any kind of privacy control? Or that 850 million people actively use Facebook every month? That’s a lot of personal information easily accessible to unscrupulous users.
Even when you think your social networking is locked down, breaches of personal information can occur via applications that interfere with your security controls, or surreptitious data mining that can occur with on-line searches. Rea.me is on the look out for on-line behaviors that seems out of character, for mentions of your personal data in places it shouldn’t be, and other types of suspicious activity.
In addition, Real.ME offers tools to locate and analyze on-line postings, mentions, and photos that are detrimental to your reputation, as well as instances where too much personal information is being shared. Social networking should be fun, and Real.ME helps keep it that way.
Do you know how widely your online activity is distributed or how many times a day you are mentioned on the web? Every minute of every day 100,000 tweets are sent, 685,000 pieces of information are posted on Facebook, and 3600 photos are shared on Instagram—and knowing how many of these mentions are about you is essential for online safety.
The Real.ME Social Analytics Tool is designed to analyze social activity around your profiles and make hanging out on the Internet fun and safe. The concept is straightforward: our technology locates and analyzes online postings, mentions, and photos that may potentially be detrimental to your reputation as well as determining who has been visiting your social networking pages. This data is then compiled in an easy-to-understand set of infographics so that you have all of this information at a glance.
Over 1200 companies track your social networking activity and market this sensitive information—yet less than a quarter of the 1.5 billion people using social networks bother with any kind of privacy control. Even if you try to manage your privacy, simply finding and understanding how to correctly set these safeguards can be challenging.
Real.ME’s Privacy Center keeps your accounts as private as you want them to be. After collecting your Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn information, we recommend which settings you should change after you choose your desired privacy level. It should be up to you what you want to reveal and to whom, and the Real.ME Privacy Center puts those decisions back into your hands. Simple, efficient, effective, Real.ME takes the guesswork out of controlling your social networking information.
What Real.ME does?
Emergence of Internet has dramatically increased spread of information, which is dangerous when it comes to personal data. Real.ME detects vulnerabilities in your «online identity» and helps prevent harmful effect to your privacy and reputation.
What is «online identity»?
It is a social identity that an Internet user establishes in online communities and websites which reveal varying amounts of personally identifiable information. Mainly «online identity» is represented by profiles and interactions in social networks, blogs, forums, online communities, games, dating sites, etc.
In Real.ME we distinguish two major domains of online identity: online reputation and online privacy.
Does online reputation really matters?
Nowadays your online image means a lot. Here are some statistics:
— About 75% of hiring managers check candidates’ social profiles.
— 69% of recruiters have rejected a candidate based on content in their social networks.
Common online problems include your identity becoming confused with that of someone with a similar name, or someone trying to intentionally damage your reputation, or even your own posts containing insensitive ethnic and racial comments, party pix, embarrassment of your employer, insult of your employer’s customers, evidence of your employer’s rules violation... This can lead to embarrassment or conflict with employers, schools, financial institutions, or romantic prospects.
How my private data is collected?
There are over 1200 registered companies (and thousands of individual hackers) track your social networking activity and market this sensitive information—yet less than a quarter of the 2 billion people using social networks bother with any kind of privacy control. That’s a lot of opportunity for personal information to be abused. Sharing something as simple as your birthday, which 68% of Facebook users do, can lead to identity theft and fraud. Even when you think your social networking is locked down, breaches of personal information can occur via applications that interfere with your security controls, or surreptitious data mining that can occur with on-line searches. Everything what have ever been published is accurately stored and marketed in the «Deep Web».
What is «Deep Web»?
The Deep Web is World Wide Web content that is not part of the Web indexed by standard search engines. It consists of stealth databases and filesharing networks, containing piles of people’s personal data, buried far down and therefore unreachable, unregulated and sometimes used in fraudulent way.
How Real.ME helps?
With the rapid growth of social and career on-line networking, and the ability to simply Google a name to see what pops up, Real.ME’s powerful technology is your best defense against the spread of inaccurate or harmful information.
The concept is straightforward: our technology locates and analyzes online postings, mentions, photos, privacy settings, «Deep Web» data pieces that may potentially be harmful to your reputation and privacy. This data is then compiled in an easy-to-understand timelines, so that you have all of this information at a glance. Based on this data we’ll work together to clean up, recreate and reinforce your online image. Strong, current, positive!
Real.ME will cost me a pretty penny, right?
Not at all. The entire service is completely free. We’ll show you breaches in your privacy, search the «Deep Web» for your personal information, scan your social network profiles for potentially compromising content, summarize your search score and help you build your own Real ID: accurate, current, positive. There are additional services for a small fee, just to cover our operational costs.
