Has Social Networking crossed the Line

How Fine is the Line? Has it been crossed already?

Social Media is now part of our everyday day lives

These sites allow us to keep in contact with friends and family where ever they may be! But the question is has it gone too far, do we have any privacy any more??

So I’m curious to now know what do we have control over, or do we have control over anything thing at all. I used to believe that deleting a previous post or picture you had uploaded would automatically mean it had been removed. But NTFM  thankfully corrected that for me and i was shocked to discover that something you post can never completely be removed and is basically public property.. this has definitely made me more aware of what i now put up online and more importantly where I put it!! What we dont know is easily explained in this article .

Think Before you Post

Before you broadcast your location to everyone on your friends list. Prune that list and make social media work for you. From a marketing standpoint, these devices are brilliant. We have more information than ever before on our current and potential customers. But there is a limit, and we should think carefully before we reach it, before we build ‘social’ into literally everything we touch.

Get a Balance

It still scares me when I think about the lack of control we have when we are online that is why I think we need to take a step back and use Social Networking sites for what they have been intended to ne used for in the first place keep Facebook for communicating with friends and family, use your LinkedIn account from communicating your business life and use your twitter account for a balance in between where you can vent and let your opinions take over cyber space!!!

The following video shows how your privacy settings on Facebook, are not for your benefit at all!! I know I will be updating my privacy settings!!
