Social Media Internet Privacy Prank Shocks People

All someone needs is your name and they can find out a bunch of personal information about you. That’s what makes the following prank, by Buzzfeed, quite interesting. A man acts as an interviewer and grabs people off the street to get their opinion. But first he asks their name. Operatives in a nearby van quickly use the name to access the person’s Facebook, Twitter, or other social media accounts. They then secretly feed information to the interviewee so that he can ask questions based on things learned from the person’s social media presence. This, in turn, really surprises a lot of unsuspecting people.

We asked a bunch of people to do an interview about online privacy. What they didn't know is that the interview was about *their* online privacy.

Information was found using Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google, Tumblr, and more.

This video was shot on-location in Los Angeles.
