A Twitter user has published a list of Facebook, Instagram and Twitter’s default social networking features as a warning that they are all going to be turned off across the board in an effort to prevent malicious activity.
According to the post, Facebook has decided to “force people to use Facebook or Twitter, rather than letting them use their existing email accounts.”
This is the first time that Facebook has implemented a similar decision, but many users will still be able to use their email accounts for the time being.
Users are now advised to use the default email address and password to sign up for Twitter, which has also changed its default settings to make it harder to trick people into making accounts using malicious email addresses.
Facebook’s default settings include blocking spam accounts and blocking accounts using spam emails, so users are advised to delete any and all spam accounts.
Users have also been advised to not use any email services other than Gmail and Yahoo.
The default settings also include blocking all of Facebook’s mobile apps, but the company has stated that they will update the default settings as it has found them to be effective in preventing spam and abuse.
Twitter has also taken the time to implement a new set of default settings that have been previously only available to users who had already created an account.
The new settings include preventing new users from logging in and requiring that users sign in to their accounts with a valid email address.
This new setting is not only more difficult to fake but also allows the site to block spam emails and spam accounts that try to access it via a fraudulent email address, which is why it’s important to protect your email addresses and passwords.
Users can also opt out of the default social media settings at any time, which means they will have to do so again at the next time they sign in.
