This is something I’ve been concerned about for a long time, because links on social media are usually shortened using a service like bitly, or even WordPress, and you don’t really know where they go until you click on them.

“A link, attached to a Twitter post put out by a robot account, promised a family-friendly vacation package for the summer. It was the kind of thing anyone might click on.

So . . . while we’re all busy training folks on phishing attacks via e-mail, the bad guys have moved to a new attack vector – social media accounts.”

But how do we teach people not to follow suspicious links when they all are suspicious?
