The General Data Protection Regulation began on May 25, and it ushered in a whole new way that your privacy can be accessed on the internet, especially on social media. The edited version of what this means is that you will now have control of your own data. And that includes taking it elsewhere if you choose, or even demanding that it be deleted. I don't profess to know every little trick to keeping private things private online, but there are ways that you don't have to make it so easy for people to get to your info.

NBC News has some great ways for you to update the privacy settings on your Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Google apps. And it's best to go ahead and do this before you absolutely have to. Check out these easy ways to update your settings. And if you're like me, grab a teenager to help you with all this bombardment of technology!
