“They” say that too many people are STILL providing too much online information about themselves on social network sites such as Facebook.
There’s over 600 Million users world wide on Facebook, and almost 10 million users are still not using privacy controls. Technology Editor Jeff Fox with consumerreports.org says there’s also still carelessness like posting your child’s name and face on Facebook, adding that it’s not a good idea. Millions of people are just exposing too much information online with Facebook.
I agree we really do live in a world of Too Much Information!!! But there is some satisfaction with Facebook. And I am guilty of posting pictures of my kids online. But I have high privacy settings, post pictures to Friends Only and usually tag my kids as my husband. It’s a great way to “showoff” your kids to the people you care about. It’s a great way to share with family around the world. What are your thoughts… is that too much, with high privacy settings, or am I setting myself up for trouble down the road?
Most of the kids of today will all have parents who’ve posted the silly pictures and videos of their kids on the internet. Is this wrong? Should we go back to the old fashioned way of sharing pictures… and actually print them and mail them to family? Or should we EMBRASE the ways of today, and go with the flow?
