The world as a whole is becoming more reliant on the internet. As innovations advance society, things like cell service and internet access are becoming more and more accessible around the globe, leading to an influx of users on various social media platforms. These sites, although they claim not to, often sell this data to third party companies, who may use it for malicious causes. The subjects' identities can be protected by anonymizing through various techniques, but studies show that there are ways to reveal identities regardless of these attempts for security. It’s important to understand how one’s data is being used. This project aims to do this by taking a deep dive into anonymization and de-anonymizing data.
