Falling Dominos Security Risks

A trend is emerging within social networking applications. That trend is interconnectivity between different social networking applications. When one application has access to another application, the possibility exists for the falling dominos effect. When one of the interconnected social networking applications become compromised the entire string of dominos falls. Researchers could easily make the argument that a positive relationship exists between online interconnectivity and increasing security risks. For example, the larger the degree of interconnectivity within social networking applications the larger the security risks that will develop.
