Posted by GMI Blogger Posted in Miscellaneous

The title of this post is meant to be a generalization and to grasp your attention because it’s an important matter – data security that is.

Facebook is a great example. It takes little more than five minutes to setup a profile, upload a few nice photos, and voila – you have a digital presence, albeit a very basic one. They even give you the option to select a vanity URL, and your Facebook Page’s SEO ranking can potentially reach something quite respectable in a short span of time.
