The researchers conducted online surveys to facilitate the consolidation easily and have a faster tracking of the number of respondents. This research is based on another research from Harvard stating that Filipinos are the least in the ranking and need to be made aware of Data Security and its importance. It is a reality check if Filipinos need to be made aware; the respondents come from first-year University of Cordilleras students, specifically from the College of Information and Computer Science. We have chosen the first-year students knowing that teens nowadays use Facebook not only to socialize with others but also in terms of school and family matters. The following chapters include a brief overview of social networking and social media history. They focus primarily on the Facebook website and one of the main problems: its data and privacy security settings and policies. After setting the stage with this overview, various research related to privacy and data security awareness of various countries will be summarized and compared with the survey results conducted in this research. This study mainly focused on understanding how far Facebook users in the Philippines understand Facebook's privacy and data security. Surveys conducted in this research also look to determine to what extent Filipino Facebook users edit and configure their privacy settings online. Aside from these findings, there is also a comparison between Male and Female Facebook users to determine whether there is any significant difference in the survey results.
