What's your thoughts?

Employers can now gather information from a workers facebook account especially with what they may post on there walls. It could possibly get the employee fired or watched for progress within the company.

To me i personally think its stupid to apply information about ones individuality on a webpage for millions to see world-wide and post pictures, videos, friend links, i mean when you think about it, it doesn't really take a lot of effort from the cyber police to learn a whole deal about one person in a short time and i personally liked to keep information about me as classified as possible. I'm sure many would agree.

Isn't that by design though.. I mean, the whole purpose is to give it all of your information so other people can see it, right? So, where's the conspiracy?

If you don't want facebook "watching" you, maybe don't willingly give it all of your personal info eh.

There is no conspiracy on this matter. Its purely to gather information on individuals and understand a lot about each person to detect and watch for potential terrorism. You'd just have to take my word on that, believe what you want. My father works for the government and made it very clear that everytime when our computers connect to the network that our IP addresses are logged and everything we type in will be picked up as keywords and logged onto different grouped server's and every household in the country is watched for potential terrorism. I just went to ask him buts hes being 'mute' like most times hes always saying he has nothing to say of the matter but early on he told me of this so its not bull for some of you. Im just trying to spread the word and help educate. Many thanks, D.

That's a good point. We don't need to share what we don't want to. Also use of "Application settings" are a good feature, so you do not "unwillingly" share everything...

You're smart. I have a friend who left his job and created a profile on Linkedin to network with folks and look for a job. His prior employer called him and indicated that he had information posted that was confidential to the company and needed to be removed. The information in question was how many folks were on the team he managed, not a trade secret. He contacted the prior employer and they indicated that they look at all current and past employees Facebook, MySpace and Linkedin on a regular basis. He did not remove it and they did not do anything, they were just looking to bully him.

Everyone's looking at you

What a sad employer has time to worry about facebook

duh, wasn't it rumored to be funded by the cia?

also there were a ton of stupid little quizzes, only thing is
I once had a battery of serious psych tests after a head injury
and a whole lot of those questions in those little quizzes weren't so stupid
they were psych analysis...

I believe this issue brings to light the need to support privacy advocates. The only way to survive the system (or hope to beat it) is to play the game by the existing rules -- this means, I think, making privacy groups larger and better funded, to give them more lobbying clout.

Anyone have a list of legitimate groups that people can send donations to? Or legislators? EFF?
