I just happened upon this article and found the read compelling. My account was also compromised on Hi5—another social networking site. Hi5 offered fancy widgets and creative backgrounds—a somewhat childish theme—while Facebook offers gaming and commerce-oriented applications that surpass generational gaps. Social networking allows participants to be as generous or as stingy as they wish with the truth. It allows the imagination to run wild and most are apt to develop alter-egos—as Prince rightly demonstrated. It allows an avenue for self-expression—and the ability for one to assume a totally different identity. Some people have capitalized on the anonymity that this affords. The temptation to assume another identity altogether as a form of escape is great. The study also underscores some truths about the sexes in terms of priorities—financial and academic stature for men, physical stature for women. Formulated based on impression; whatever improves their chances.

Jurassic Park – A. Wasn’t open yet B. The visitors were in no way responsible for their own safety.

Internet – Everyone knows perfectly well that they should make a good password. They’re just lazy and think “oh, it won’t ever happen to me.” It would be like if every visitor to JP was responsible for closing the Raptor cage when they used it. Of course the Raptors will get out, because people are stupid and lazy.

I’ve repeatedly asked Twitter Security if they might work on some way of an individual’s removing an entire Botnet based on a keyword or phrase, instead of having to eliminate a suspected Botnet “person by person” – actually, Bot by Bot! So far, no luck. But if more people agitate for it, maybe they’ll someday allow it.

You have really let the cat out of the bag?
From a corporate and government point of view these site are a major security risk.
From the individuals point of view it is someone to talk too! The catch is what are you being drawn into. As you can wind up being cleaned out financially, physically abused or murdered.
These programs are a little like rolling a snow ball down hill and starting an avalanche.
The concept of every one being able to communicate is excellent; however one needs to be aware you may be the hunted not the hunter.

Absolutely appropriate and secure thought, i am small business who is interested in going online, and also espouse my many causes in environmental management and habitat protection for the dwindling tiger in Karnataka South of India.As a saying goes the Lucre(cash,coin) has two sides to it.
The article is very thought provoking and Brilliant.

In addition to identity theft, these social sites are plagued with viruses that continually threaten your computer. It is a big problem for corporates whose employees open to social sites at work… but as anything in our society we usually dont close the barn door and incorporate proceedures till long after the horses ran loose….. unfortunate as it is!
