Because of the hacking incident on the US Central Command social media accounts, a lot of people are asking how safe using social media is when even the government is vulnerable to attacks online.

What happened obviously showed the lack of proper security among social media platforms and that the government is not able to create defenses to improve security standards. They have the best men and women to protect the country but they were not able to find a way to stop hackers with their own online terrorism acts. Social media security has a few guarantees and it took an embarrassing incident to prove just how vulnerable one can be around social media.
