In a world where the phrase "pics or it didn't happen" is a widespread mantra, people of all ages are sharing a wide range of information about themselves on social media.

Of course, social media websites were designed to encourage sharing. Many of us spend a large chunk of our days sharing lots of professional information on social, whether we're managing our company's Facebook account or tweeting pictures of the event we're attending.

But when it comes to personal information, our sharing strategy might be a little different. Do you really want your boss to see you dancing at the club on your friend's birthday? Or a random stranger to be able to scroll through pictures of your baby niece dribbling applesauce on her onesie?

Many people want to limit who actually sees the stuff they're posting on social -- especially personal photos. In fact 27% of Facebook users strongly dislike other people see posts they didn't mean for them to see.

There are ways to protect the photos you post to popular social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Flickr. To learn how, check out the infographic below from for step-by-step social media privacy guides that are easy to follow.
