The US University of Vermont and the University of Adelaide researchers found in their research that if a person deletes a social media account or does not even live, his friends make up about 95% of the data about him .
The researcher has published his research in Magazine named ‘Nature Human Behavior‘, in which he has said that, privacy on social media is like a second-hand smoke, which is controlled by people around you. For this research, the researcher has studied more than 3 million tweets of 13,905 Twitter users.

This study shows that any company, government or other institution can proffer on the basis of political inclination, preferred product or religious interest of any person.
