Video: Prank scares social media addicts

What would you do if a complete stranger approached you on the street with a surprising knowledge of your private life?

That's what happened when YouTuber Jack Vale used location services to see who was using Twitter and Instragram near him.

He then gathered more information about them through social media and approached them in real life with an unusual amount of information about them.

The name of pets, birthday celebrations, jobs and, of course, what they for lunch are just some of the nuggets of information Mr Vale scared his victims with.

Would a prank like this make you think twice about sharing information on social media websites?
