As social media increases in functionality and popularity, it has become more vulnerable. It is no secret that social media vendors exclude security during development, hence leaving it to users' discretion which raises a serious cause for concern. This paper is to study existing vulnerabilities of online social media and propose practical solutions. The importance of studying social media vulnerabilities provides a clear understanding in developing a new security model to prevent social engineering attacks.
