    My placement officer at school told us to make our social networking sites private because HR departments are using interns to screen them for all applicants.

    Big Brother is watching but with a twist. Citizens are voluntarily permitting personal information to be transmitted and the government is laughing all the way to the central database.

    Around here at work we’re always making fun of each other about the Facebook apps we all belong to, or not. Not only is all of your information stored/shown from the main Facebook servers, but each company that puts out an app that you subsequently subscribe to, also has all of your information. People when they join up and see how easy it is to do everything, just have fun doing it without thinking of the repercussions.
    I kinda like the way the internet used to be, with that bit of annonymity. You could be as anonymous as you wanted to be, or not, but you had more or less full control of what and to whom you divulged information to. In a way, now you don’t.
