Data produced in social media applications such as Facebook, Twitter or image databases like Flickr grows daily and is stored centrally in most cases. Thereby the security aspects are often neglected and thus personal data is often visible unintended.

The aim of this thesis is to use open API's provided by social media vendors like Facebook to demonstrate this security problem. With this in mind, a prototype should be created which delivers every possible information found in the web about a given person.
