Facebook Privacy

Alot has been said about Facebook privacy (or lack thereof). A friend passed along this fascinating link that graphically illustrates the evolution of privacy on facebook (or should that be devolution?)

Social networking contains all kind of dangers, from the typical social engineering and scamming to getting fired for 'chucking a sickie' and things far, far worse.

Of course, facebook, myspace or linkedin aren't responsible for the crimes that may be committed by users of their service, but sites like facebook they aren't helping matters by proclaiming 'privacy is dead' and purposely making more information public.

It has been said before, but bears repeating: don't put anything on the internet that you wouldn't want everyone to know. While I don't agree with mark Zuckerburg that 'privacy is dead', I do agree that for all intensive purposes, 'privacy is dead on the internet'.

And finally if you are a facebook user, here are 10 Privacy Settings Every Facebook User Should Know, or if you're tired of the whole social netowrking thing, how to delete your facebook profile in 5 minutes (and by the way, apparently you're not alone).
