  • Your comments about the Facebook phone book are very timely. Many of my friends posted about the latest “Facebook security issue” and instructed everybody to go and change their settings, in ALL CAPS of course.

    The bigger issue surrounding the perceived Facebook phone book issue is the lack of understanding of Internet privacy in general. People still believe that they can engage in conversations on-line and still maintain a high level of anonymity and security.

    Your Facebook profile asks for and stores a significant amount of information about you and your life. It is certainly more information than is found in your credit report. In addition to name, address, and phone number, do you really want to share the names of your children and relatives.

    Perhaps we should rethink social networking security in general and take control of our personal information by keeping it out of the hands of Facebook (or any other social networking service).
