From what I understand a blog is sort of like Facebook where you can post what your feeling or what is on your mind. The difference is with a blog it is like your own website and Facebook anyone can see your information along with your posts.
While reading The Importance of User Education In Privacy it made me wonder if my boss could see my information can anyone see it. I have Facebook set up so that only your friends can access my information. Anyone who is technology advanced who knows how to hack into URLs could easily get all the information and private chats at any time. Facebook is one of the ways in which people communicate. It is faster than email and more private than twitter but how private is it. From your own page you can really tell if someone who is not your friend can see your page.
In A Flashy Facebook Page, At A Cost To Privacy reminds me of all the friends I know who are addicted to the games on Facebook and how my page gets slammed to join a friend on a multiple of games. “some security researchers warn that developers of the software have assemble too much information-home town, schools attended, employment history- and can use the data in ways that could harm or annoy users”(Hart). With that amount of access into someone’s history a thief could still the information they need to get into your banking accounts or cell phone service. Most of the time in high risk places like those they could ask for your mother’s elementary school or your father’s mother’s madden name.
I start to wonder how many people are truly safe on Facebook; and how many people need to recheck there status to make sure it is right.
