Privacy (Photos)

How important is your privacy? Some folks care; some don’t. If it’s important to you, I encourage you to check your privacy settings on every online service you use, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google and so forth.

Facebook is now building a database of photos based on those photos that have been tagged with someone’s name. They will even show you a bunch of photos that might be you. And the default Privacy setting is to allow that function. The whole thing creeps me out.

I really don’t need everyone in the world to know what I look like. …Not that the whole world – or even a tiny portion- really cares, but one has to draw the line somewhere and Facebook just stepped over mine.
