I was recently interviewed about Facebook privacy issues for a magazine article and I thought I may have a different take on this but would like to also get the thoughts of my readers here.
Is your personal privacy on Facebook a huge deal for you? I thought that by joining a social networking site, people already expect that most of what they do or share in there are for public consumption.
Facebook has recently changed the way it handles privacy settings though I don’t think a huge percentage of users have really taken a closer look at it.
I think people aren’t too concerned about online privacy until they’ve been personallyÂ affected by it. It’s like smoking — you know that someday it might damage your lungs but that’s too far in the future to be a concern now. What do you think?
