Social networking and your privacy

If you think your online profile is displaying only the information you want to the people you want, you really need to think again.  

For proof, please have a look at this article: Facebook Backs Off as Founder’s Pictures Go Public

An excerpt:

“Under the new privacy regime, user profiles are exposed to the web unless users are proactive about limiting access … Either Mark Zuckerberg got a whole lot less private or Facebook’s CEO doesn’t understand the company’s new privacy settings.”

Please use your head when putting your personal information online … and please, please check your Privacy settings, which were recently updated by Facebook and are wide open by default.
