should YOU stop blogging?

19 March 2010

This article, from Yahoo Finance, "How Privacy Vanishes Online" is alarming.

"If a stranger came up to you on the street, would you give him your name, Social Security number and e-mail address?"

My answer is NO. We even advice our kids "don't talk to strangers". But a lot of us tend to give personal information on our blogs and on social networking sites like facebook to people we barely know

"You may not disclose personal information, but your online friends and colleagues may do it for you, referring to your school or employer, gender, location and interests. Patterns of social communication, researchers say, are revealing."

So very true. Hmmm. Should I delete my facebook account?

Should I resign from blogging?

As for me Sis, I got a strange call from India from a man because he saw my mobile number at my Facebook account. After that, I removed my mobile number, email add and YM messenger. I also created another personal account intended for friends and family lang talaga. No one else.

Yung dati kung account, ginawa ko business and gaming account na lang.
