Social Networking Privacy Issues

Reading this, I felt how easy it is for one to perform a Social Engineering! I see lot’s of my friends sharing their day to day activities as scrap on social network web sites. They talk about how they are feeling, how they felt, where they are planning for a holiday, where they were on holiday many many such personal information, which is quite easy for any one to assess the guy’s personality, his/her taste etc. Giving away too much of information is nothing but leaving high probability of misuse by a malicious user.

In fact the profile creation form by it self has many sensitive information, which if gets in to wrong hands will definitely pose some sort of threat.

Moral of the story is next time when you scrap try being safe… what ever you wanna do Think and do! 🙂
