A look at facebook and how you could easily be a target!
A Quick Look At Facebook
[ Facebook Groups & The Wall ]
Wall posts can reveal a lot of
information about the person
who posted the message...
Facebook groups reveal a lot of information about you! ...or the person to whom the message was sent. “ hmm...this person lives in Streetsville, Mississauga! Oh, and he plays basketball for a team called “103.” Thanks to the group page I’ll know exactly where and when he’ll be playing! ”
[ Mini Feed & Photos ]
Tagging a photo of someone
not only documents what the person
looks like but also where they
Events show where someone is, where they have been or where they will be! So, if you wanted to stalk someone, it would be relatively easy to do so. Example : this picture had a caption that said “I love where I work!” So, it’s easy to infer that the girl works at this building & it would be easy for a stalker to go out and find her! CREEPY!
[ Personal Information Section] The most sensitive part of facebook is the personal information page because it contains such things as: Sexual preference Relationship status Educational/employment history Residence Name Birthday Political/religious views Sex

BECAUSE IT AFFECTS YOU! Over millions of people have uploaded sensitive information onto Facebook and many of them faced the consequences.
Don’t Think You’re At Risk? Random people on campus were asked which online social network they use. Facebook is one of the most frequently used social sites on the internet. Thus, many people have access to one’s information and users must be extra careful because stalkers would most likely use Facebook.
What’s Facebook Good For? Surely everyone has used facebook to stalk someone but NO ONE ever admits it.
